So I have been a Table Top Gamer since it first came out.
I am linking the Brietbart article which I really didn’t want to do.
I saw many youtube channels talk about it
Garcia argues that Dungeons and Dragons encourages a distrust of the “other.” It’s a weird focus for a Stanford scholar, especially since Garcia concedes that race in Dungeons & Dragons is not much like race in the real world. In the game, the characters are divided by their species. Some characters are elves, some are dwarves, and some are halfings, according to Garcia.
According to the article, Garcia’s ultimate wish is to see Dungeons & Dragons move beyond its problematic past into a more diverse and inclusive future.
He obviously doesn’t seem to have played in groups are even watch youtube groups or gone to gaming conventions. Yes Men of all Races Play D&D but their are women as well. All the groups I have played in have had women in it.
As for his concept of Distrust hell that came more for me in CyberPunk than D&D. All of our characters would be wanting to sit in the best spot to get the complete view of the place. I do that when I go out to eat any time.
Like to keep an eye on everything. ~Paranoia
Just don’t get how he came up with his conclusion. Been trying to see if I can find his report.
