 Outrage As ‘Inclusive Gamers’ Call Out Racism in PC Gaming Community

As systemic and inherent racism is finally exposed in all facets of American life, many journalists are unveiling investigations into just how deep this particularly racist rabbit hole goes.

For years before Adolf Hitler became chancellor of Germany, he was obsessed with ideas about race. In his speeches and writings, Hitler spread his beliefs in racial “purity” and in the superiority of the “Germanic race”—what he called an Aryan “master race.” He pronounced that his race must remain pure in order to one day take over the world. For Hitler, the ideal “Aryan” was blond, blue-eyed, and tall.

Inclusive Gamers, a publication that garnered national attention for their exposition on Notch and the problematic powerhouse that is Minecraft, has recently released a stunning investigative piece on a concept that is both iconic in the gaming community and deeply racist: the PC Master Race.

Seemingly a ridiculously on the nose nod towards Hitler’s Aryan Master Race, this term is actually denied by its proponents to have even a hint of racism rooted in it.

In fact, calls for the abolishment of this term can be heard going back years and by other revered publications like PC Gamer.

But this time, the keystone figures in making this wrong right are not backing down. In fact, the article has already generated widespread hate and calls for violence against Inclusive Gamers as a whole.

“It’s obvious the [PC Master Race] hates being undermined or questioned,” says Babi Baldmyn, Editor-in-Chief of Inclusive Gamers, “Anything to do with calling them out instantly sends them into a boiling rage. We was (sic) expecting that.”

Despite the backlash, Inclusive Gamers aren’t backing down.

As their lead staff writer – Finn Stovenson – puts it,

“We are going to ‘murk’ bigots everywhere. We’re ‘pwning’ racism. Together.”
