It’s been a while but here is the premiere episode of season 2 of my youtube series, Black Gamer Struggle. In this episode, I tried to talk about how geek culture is super trendy now thanks to culture vultures as well as how I felt cheated because of this. I also touch on how a small group of gamers feels people of color are ruining the video game culture.
Growing up black and being into “nerdy” shit has always been somewhat of a struggle for me. A running theme for most of my younger life has been “Too white for the black kids, too black for the white kids”. Of course, I eventually came to the realization that I don’t have to justify my blackness to anyone, not even other black people. Carlton said it best, “Being black isn’t what I’m trying to be, it’s what I am”. Anyway, I don’t want to spoil the entire episode. If any of this resonates with you maybe give the video a view and share your thoughts or experiences with me in the comments.
