I love the Sims franchise and have been a long customer, supporter and player. What most bothers me by the Sims franchise and the Sims games is the uneven dispersal of SOC (Sims of Colour). No way is the Sims world supposed to relate to real life in a political sense, as it's far too perfect and ideal (which myself and I'm sure others love because who doesn't want that in game? Who wants real life struggles in the Sims?) so why do light skinned Sims habituate most of the towns populous? Is the Sims creators trying to relate to some real life countries racial demographic (but deciding to leave out other demographics like politics, rules, cultural clothing ect.)? Why are the Sims games using this light skinned supremacist ideal and not including a fair dispersal of skin tones, as I just see a disturbing amount of light coloured Sims in these towns that we consider perfect and ideal? Does anyone else find this problematic--it suggests to me that a town with an even dispersal of varied skin tones cannot sustain a good non-corrupt living environment? Is this game just feeding to real life white supremacist ideals, that light skinned populated areas are the best to live in?
I would like and expect to see a large demographic of varied skin tones which is even and non-discriminatory. No 60% light skinned and 40% other colours which we see so much of. I would like to see an even amount of colours like the demographics of Brazil for eg. as I feel like the towns and game overall is marketed towards white people which is discriminatory as the Sims games are bought all over the world and by a large racial demographic. I am interested to hear other peoples opinions on this (educated and NON-RACIST OR DISCRIMINATORY OPINIONS, thank you)
