Maybe Barret is just an angry man with a gun? Maybe the ones bringing up the fact that he's black are the stereotypical ones, not square themselves. I think his skin color is and always has been irrelevant. He's just a pissed off man who's seen some shit and fought in a lot of battles. That could make anyone angry all the time.
THIS. THIS. A THOUSAND TIMES THIS.
Yeah, if you acknowledge that racism might exist then obviously you're the real racist.
Not really the part I was talking about there buddy. I mean that in the grand scheme of who Barret is, his skin color has always been damn near completely irrelevant. I have never thought of him as "the black guy from FFVII" because there is a lot more to who he is.
