5 Racist Board Games Designed To Humiliate and Degrade African-Americans

1 Posted by - September 27, 2015 - BLACK STEREOTYPES, LATEST POSTS, Looking Black On Today, Racism

There have been some of the most controversial board games ever made. When you think of board games, most people think of fun, or educational games that the whole family can play. No one ever thinks of racist games that you would be ashamed to say you owned. Many of these games were so offensive to the African-American community, that many of these games never made its way off the shelf.  However, there were probably people who purchased the games just to see what they were all about out of pure curiosity.

Little is a game of  caricature that was created around 1945. The game is about a little Black jungle boy who goes on an adventure in the jungle.

Black people just could not escape the “watermelon lovers stereotype.” It was so well-known that a game called “Darkies in the Watermelon Patch” was created. The game was created around 1910, with a newer version in 1930. The objective of the game was to escape from a patch of watermelons. However, players had to make it past mean farmers and manly looking women.

 3.

To much surprise GHETTOPOLY was created around 2003. Of course, the game was designed to make fun of the African-American community and the life-style of Blacks. The game has players selling soap, has a crack house, and the player is rewarded for things such as getting the neighborhood hooked on drugs, and stealing cars among many other things.

4. Five Little Nigger Boys

This is one of the most racist games that has to have been made. Not only are the characters called boys and niggers, but the figurines that players are to “shoot down” are horribly designed and eating watermelon. The object of the game is for the first player to shoot down a specific number of pieces determined by players win.

5.

Public Assistance *Why Bother Working For A Living?*  The company that created the game alleged it was intended to be a spoof of the welfare system, and after a complicated court case with New York officials calling for a ban of the game, Hammerhead Enterprises triumphed  based on constitutional laws. Although, no race is ever called out in the game, there are several mentions of the word ethnic employer. If you didn’t know anything about this game, you probably didn’t miss much.

    Point of correction: Right out of the gate, Item #1, “Little Black Sambo” is not about Negroes. It was written by a Caucasian woman about dark-skinned Indians (of India). Even the darkest-skinned Indians are racially Caucasian. Because, you see, “race” is not determined by skin pigmentation.
