Velázquez Denounces Racist Video Game "Dirty Chinese Restaurant”

Velázquez Denounces Racist Video Game "Dirty Chinese Restaurant”
October 4, 2017
Press Release
Washington, DC –Today, Rep. Nydia M. Velázquez (D-NY) issued the following statement after a video game that spews racist stereotypes against the Chinese community surfaced on multiple internet platforms: 
 
        “The game ‘Dirty Chinese Restaurant’ is completely repugnant and has no place being sold to consumers. By deploying racist stereotypes such as the eating and slaughtering of cats and dogs, the makers of this game are pursuing messages that serve to perpetuate hate, bigotry and intolerance. The entertainment industry and internet providers should do their part in breaking down racist stereotypes, not perpetuating them.”
