Racial bias is evident in many games. It manifests itself through invisibility and absence; a lack of black lead characters, or game design that fails to accurately depict black faces, bodies and hair. Many players are therefore forced to play a persona that is far removed from their own life, or serves as a poor imitation of their reality. As with many forms of media, repression can be felt in enabling certain bodies and stories to be visible, while omitting others.
