The Cuban American Bar Association (CABA) has sent a letter to Take-Two Interactive condemning Grand Theft Auto: Vice City’s use of “racially charged remarks promoting the hate and killing of Haitians and Cubans.” The letter, signed by CABA President Ramon A. Abadin, and copied to U.S. Attorney John Ashcroft and Florida Governor Jeb Bush, calls upon the Federal and State governments to join CABA in seeking the removal of the offensive video game from store shelves throughout the US. The letter also demands an official letter of apology from Take-Two to the Cuban and Haitian communities. The CABA's letter quotes the Haitian government spokesperson, Mario Dupuy, who stated, "this racist game is psychologically extremely dangerous and is an incitement to genocide." Source: Yahoo!
