Video Games and Ethnic Slurs

Feds to Hear Video-Game Lawsuit

Haitian civil rights groups filed the lawsuit because the game, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, instructs players to “kill the Haitians” and awards points for each kill.

The New York-based Rockstar Games has agreed to remove the offensive line from future versions of the award-winning video that has sold 11 million copies.

But the Haitian organizations, led by the Haitian-American Coalition of Palm Beach County, have also asked for more than $15,000 in damages.
