Anti-Defamation League Issues Report On Racist Games

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) released a report on racism in videogames, calling attention specifically to an independently developed game called Ethnic Cleansing that harbors violent, racist themes.
The PC game is found on the web site of Resistance Records, a distributor of racist music, which is in turn owned by the National Alliance -- "the largest and most active neo-Nazi organization in the United States," according to the ADL. Ethnic Cleansing is an FPS, in which a player chooses to play either as a hooded KKK member or a skinhead, and must kill African-American, Hispanic and Jewish enemy characters. Abraham Foxman, national director of the ADL, told David Becker of CNET that the ADL's main goal in publishing this report was to raise the public's awareness of the growing number of racist games before they proliferate. The ADL report can be found at http://www.adl.org/videogames/default.asp.
