I really don't know how I feel about this.

On the one hand, it's interesting to see something like a virtual museum and classroom be explored in a game like this, and for all of Epic's faults, they don't seem to skimp when it comes to putting on actual real-time live events in Fortnite, unlike Activision with COD Warzone.

On the other hand...gamers. And I really don't need to say anything beyond that.

OK, but did he not dream of a day when little black boys and girls would be able to join hands with little white boys and girls?

Is that not Fortnite's userbase? Plus a buncha Mexican and Asian boys and girls too.

Judge them not by the color of their [Fortnite] skin, but by the content of their killstreak, Clearly this is what he wanted. This is what MLK saw in his dream, and we realize it today.

I've also heard they're finalizing the deal to get his face on cans of MTN DEW Gamer Fuel.

I think this is an awesome idea.

Not sure if they included some event swag with it, but if they make one player proud to be Black or make the Civil Rights movement which helped shift the needle on unfairness that's a great thing they did.

"How can we do something positive for gamer culture in the wake of Activision Blizzard's buffoonery?"

"We could educate gamers about civil rights?"

"Gods man, you're a genius! We could feature MLK!"

"Wait isn't he an icon and advocate for non-violence? This is a battle royale."

"Shut up, we're doing MLK. You're fired."

Killing Lord British has always been the most important virtue.  His corpse is the fountain of happiness and harmony for the land.

He apologized for Tabula Rasa.

What else do you want? Blood?
