I’m happy that Animal Crossing: New Horizons includes the option to play as a black character. I’m overjoyed the game actually gives you a decent option when it comes to giving your character a traditionally black hairstyle.
I’ve gotten to the point where I’m not really angry anymore whenever I see a video game character creator think that good diversity is making sure to include options for an afro or cornrows. I’m just tired of yelling about it.
