Posting this because a certain paragraph caught my attention

In a recent demo of the game, Polygon was shown how this system has evolved. Upon entering the city, protagonist Booker DeWitt wins a raffle, giving him the opportunity to throw a baseball at an interracial couple. The focus on ethics and morality becomes part of the narrative more than a function of the gameplay or a way of regularly gaining items.

I feel like the more I read this the more absurd it seems, why would anyone throw the baseball other than to be a dick on purpose?

Kinda worried that now this game will have the same be Jesus or be Hitler morality of the original Bioshock, instead of a more meaningful exploration of moral grey areas seen in recently in The Walking Dead.

Thoughts?
