Depressed Black Reality of South Park

The demos are out for the new South Park Game ‘South Park: The Fractured But Whole’ and it’s causing a big stir due to its commentary on life versus skin color.

The game, which will be released in October, sets its level of difficulty based on your character’s skin color. The darker the skin color gets, the harder the game becomes.

When you choose a skin color-related difficulty setting, a voiceover from the beloved Eric Cartman says, “Don’t worry, this doesn’t affect combat, just every other aspect of your life.” According to the game developers, the more color you add, the more adversity you’ll face regarding the money you earn and the way other characters speak to you throughout the game.

We here at Massive Phobia have to take our hats off to “South Park” for what they’re doing here. No white person could ever imagine or feel what it’s like to be a Black person in America. Obviously, this game will not do that either, but hopefully, this game will help make white people open their eyes to what the Black community deals with on an everyday basis.

The below piece of Bad Poetry is about how a show that most people don’t watch is sadly the one tackling these race issues that still persist today. Also, the Mental Health issues that have been created by still ignoring all of the racism that still exists for the black community. And how the most popular show on TV, is still the type of mediocre show that would be seen in the 1950’s. Taking no risks at all except to appease the biggest part of the population. Where are risky shows like ‘All in the Family’? It’s like society has gone backward. Now we hope you enjoy the poem, and we’re looking for more African-American-Canadian writers, so if this is you or know of someone that would like us, that’s also into art or creative writing, send us an email at
