Ghettopoly is a new board game that sends players to buy stolen property and acquire the most money, like Monopoly. The banker is a lone shark and if a player lands on stolen property they must pay "protection fees." "The graphics on the board depict every race in the country and both genders," the game's creator, David Chang, says in a statement. "It draws on stereotypes not as a means to degrade, but as a medium to bring us together in laughter." If we can't laugh at ourselves and how we each utilize the various stereotypes, then we'll continue to live in blame and bitterness, according to Chang. Redneckopoly comes in fall 2003.
