(Daily Caller) A taxpayer-funded computer game produced by Spelman College features a black female protagonist battling the evil forces of climate change and gender issues.
Spelman College, a historically black women’s college in Atlanta, won a $100,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to create an interactive computer game featuring a black female superhero. The game, which is called “HERadventure,” will be released on March 8 in celebration of International Women’s Day.
Spelman College did not respond to requests for comment, but a press release from the college describes the game as “a science fiction-based, multimedia platform project that… tackles social issues that permeate the daily reality of many women.”
What a fantastic use of taxpayer money! Some might say “it’s only $100,000, a drop in the bucket compared to what Los Federales spend.” True.

“Although it is the smorgasbord of politically correct elements that makes this project entertaining to write about, the bottom line is that the government has taken $100,000 from the taxpayers and given it to someone to develop a video game,” wrote Jeryl Bier of Speak With Authority, a conservative blog.
If the makers of the game were serious, they would have given up their fossil fueled lifestyles, sold their cars, and used the proceeds to make it. Or, better yet, not make it, because it causes the usage of lots of electricity to produce it and play it.
