A new video game featuring a black alien female superhero delivered to Earth to fight global warming is about to hit the market thanks to a $100,000 grant from the Obama administration.
The National Endowment for the Arts is funding the Spelman College of Atlanta, Ga.'s multi-episode game called "HERadventure." In the grant announcement made last year, the NEA said the story "focuses on a young female superhero sent to Earth to save her own planet from devastation because of climate changes caused by social issues impacting women and girls."
The game is set to debut on March 8 on International Women's Day.
The college's digital newspaper described the project this way: "What would happen if the societal issues affecting women put other planets at risk? Well, of course, HER, a black female superhero, would swoop in with a plan to save the universe.

"Women and Minorities hardest hit"
Hahahahahhhaaaaa... Spelman College...who’da thunk it there were so many game programmers there just itching to get that superbigdaddy popular video game out there?
What a frigging joke.....They can’t even pay their damned bills. I can’t tell you how many times someone I know has told me “If I don’t pay them bribes, they won’t have me come work on their stuff.”
This will end up stuffing some adminstrator’s and instructor’s pocket with a some kind of lame-ass game in basic being the product.
It’s a good thing our government has no debt and can afford stuff like this.
I bet she is beautiful, has large knockers and wears a skin tight suit with high heeled boots and if that is the case I might just take a look : )
Try diagramming that sentence. So social issues impacting females cause climate change? Here I had been brainwashed into thinking that it was SUVs.
And you pay taxes to these criminals?
But does the game address the overriding issue here?
Does the stupid burn?
Ye!. Yes the stupid burns. Like white phosphorous.
“I bet she is beautiful, has large knockers and wears a skin tight suit with high heeled boots and if that is the case I might just take a look : )”
That’s her “superhero” look. Her secret identity is Summer S. Eve, a white dyke with hairy armpits and Birkenstocks.
YO YO WAZZUP YO I IS HERE TO KOOL THA PLANITT!!
“I bet she is beautiful, has large knockers and wears a skin tight suit with high heeled boots and if that is the case I might just take a look”
She makes Rosie O’Donnell look beautiful, has saggers, and dags like Sheryl Crowe and for the same reason.
Cue in picture of Lisa Jackson!
Dudes, take a look at the picture of the character included in the original article:
Let's just say a picture is worth 1,000 words...and that, IMHO, she bears a strange resemblance to a certain 44th President of the United States, right down to the "Now you've had an independent idea and pissed me off" expression on her face. It's as if someone said, "How can we make out metrosexual President into a shower cap-wearing female Zabrak from Star Wars?"
Leave it to government to produce a butt-ugly, nappy-headed “female” superhero ...
Um, no. she’s not hot. She looks like a cross between Obama and...well somebody from Parliament Funkadelic, not sure who. See post 14.
Oh, and stormdog, you owe me a new keyboard.
I hope they paid for stuff like this by minting a few coins. I’d hate to have my taxes paying for it...
She isn’t nappy-headed...I think those are sex toys of some sort sticking through a swimming racer’s cap...
You're right - the US has money to burn... or money's burning a hole in Obama's pocket, or it's 'burn baby burn' ... whatever.
Also nice to know liberal elites at the National Endowment for the Arts got their cut. Gotta spread that money around among the chosen ones...
I hope its multiplayer so we can all take turns killing her. Maybe do a Call of Duty mod and use some heavy artillary.
Is this like Medal of Honor where we can also play as “the enemy?” Can we spatter her brains on the concrete wall with a good clean head shot?
Same thought, different game....
I was under the impression that video game making was a profitable business.
Since this needs federal welfare to develop, that means that they are not expecting to sell many copies.
That all may be so, but the important thing is, would Laz hit it?
If I got that game for my kid his friends would beat him up every day.
It will come standard on the Chevy Volt...
I actually wouldnt mind a Skyrim mod.
I have never played a video game. I would be tempted to play this one for the opportunity to kill her.
Anyone want to bet she has muscular arms, wide hips, and wears a superhero boob belt?!
Didn’t something like this happen one time before?
This is causing a vague itch in my severely limited long term memory but I can’t scratch it.
Such is life.
And how are we supposed to be able to help her? Is their an elderly knight living in some out of the way corner of our planet who is her only hope?
How convenient. Those who complain about this can now be labeled as racist.
How does this crap happen? Who’s in charge of this stuff? We’re broke, borrowing money out the wazoo from the Chinese, considering minting trillion dollar coins, taxes just went up and the RAT’s are getting ready to ask for more and some fool thinks that this video game is a good idea. We’re screwed folks!
Oh, good! Do we get to shoot her??
I’m still trying to figure out whether “her own planet” is the one she came from or Earth? That other stuff is beyond absurdity, it is truly in a class of insanity all to itself. All the more amazing is that those who came up with this garbage undoubtedly consider themselves to be brilliant scholars.
Speaking from 68 years of experience I estimate that the average sharecropper with a sixth grade education sixty years ago was smarter than the average recent college graduate simply because the sharecropper was exposed to far more real world experience and maybe one percent of the MISINFORMATION.
IIRC, in MOH you don’t actually play as the enemy, you play as a deep cover operative in a terrorist cell.
You must...and I do mean must...see this:
The whole thing is amusing, but if you’re short on time start at 0:55 and go to 1:20 or so.
