No, seriously... what kurds?!

I really question what sort of bubble these people live in that an virtual modern clone of an orange Charger in a loving video game is an immeasurable offense. They should probably hang out more with common blue collar people, instead of sipping latte writing stupid articles in a Starbucks on their couch. They'd find more important things to get upset about than this sort of poo poo.

idk avoiding iconography that lionizes slavers seems like a pretty easy bar to clear but considering huge swaths of america won't even try and might shoot you for asking i understand why some people might prefer not to have reminders of hate symbols in their escapist video game

So not featuring the confederate flag isn't enough? Without it, it's just a dumb orange Charger.

Also, Dukes of Hazard not getting aired in the US anymore? --edit: I guess not.

the car itself is called the general lee and flag or not it's still inextricably tied to that iconography

When the TV show came out the confederate stuff was more about Hollywood going "lol look at the silly hillbillies am I rite?" Like it always had bad implications if you thought about it, but it's not like now where pretty much only people who are being aggressive assholes on purpose use that symbolism.

It was always bad and dumb, but the people doing it for a laugh all stopped and all that's left are people doing it to deliberately provoke people.

Or put another way, I think unironic jerking off to the confederacy is more of a thing for right wingers in America now than it was in 1980. That poo poo really seemed to take of during the George W Bush administration, like a lot of other bad and dumb poo poo.

E: The shitbird gang having a General Lee analogue would be very on point though!

As someone who barely watches any movies, let alone old irrelevant politically-charged ones, I didn't realize that I needed a phd in watching them in order to not deliberately provoke people now. Gently caress.

Ok, so is the manufacturer, Dodge, considered racist by extension as well as the model? I don't really think that the Dodge Charger itself should be guilty by association just because some movie painted(?) a confederate flag on it, but I also don't think that the OK symbol should be considered racist just because some dumbass white nationalists use an upside down version of it

I thought almost all the cars in Cyberpunk look insanely good and fit the Mike Pondsmith cyberpunk style. Also, there's no way in hell that I'm driving in third-person after seeing interiors like this:

I was making a joke when I called out someone for having ok symbols in their posted image but they did end up apologizing and removing the image in question, so...
The fact that the person's username happened to be "No Mods No Masters" is a cherry on top.

hell yeah, that's nomad as gently caress

I seem to remember remember the roof being a giant confederate flag, so people will lose their poo poo for the association even if it’s omitted.

yeah it was, but also... you're supposed to be allowed to paint your car anyway you like so the cyber general might not even be in the actual game unless you do it yourself.

The ps4/xbone in essence have a Radeon hd7850. Anything better than that will run the game at some settings at a “playable” frame rate. This has been true for basically the entire console generation.
