Melissa sent in a trailer for the video game, inFAMOUS2. The game features a white male protagonist who is advised by a bad influence and a good influence. Melissa notes that these are a black woman dressed skimpily and a white woman dressed (relatively) modestly, respectively. So here we have, again, an affirmation that black is bad and white is good.
