Upon Starting up GTA San Andreas and watching the intro for the first time, I knew there would be a lot of stereo typing going on. The first thing that happens is some crooked cops pull you over, hand cuff you and take you money. Then you go back to the crib and hang with your hommies. So far the game is filled with racial profiling and slurs. Also it seems at least for now, as long as there are no cops around, you can get away with anything. For example, you can go up to a random person, and shoot him/her and take their money and nothing will come of it. On a more analytical level, it seems like a reversed cultural relativism rules this game. Your gang is always right, and everyone else is wrong. You are judging others ideals and because they are not your own, they are wrong and you either need to kill them or vandalize their property. That is what i have gotten from my firs encounter with GTA-SA.
