DiscriminationPong... Experience discrimination in a game. DiscriminationPong project features some serious defects. It visualizes discrimination/racism, makes it playable and very tangible. The player experiences discrimination/racism first-hand while trying to establish a win in this unfair variation of Pong. The 'not so white-paddle' is discriminated in several aspects: from its visuals and its movements to the overall gamemechanic of the game. It is very hard for the discriminated player to win a match. Discrimination is implemented in different ways: the 'not-so-white-paddle' gets darker and darker.

Does it have an Affirmative Action mode where the "discriminated" player gets a larger paddle and isn't penalized when it misses the ball? Or gets a 10 point head start?

To be more accurate, in Affirmative Action mode "discriminated" player would be showered with freebies regardless of level of play, and would be awarded the game before the start of play. Anyone who objected would lose at least one turn.

Actually, wealthy white teens outnumber students who benefit from affirmative action in higher education.
Interesting premise for a game though.

Why are you bringing up wealth in a discussion of discrimination? And why single out whites? What about Asians? Do you have any idea what you're talking about?


Bottom line: AA = discrimination. But because the victim is, or is thought to be, a "privileged" white kid, it's ok.
AA says "You, as a black, can't possibly make it on your own, so we the benevolent whites will lift you up a little. No need to thank us. Just vote Democrat and we'll call it even."
