1. The guns. Where the hell did they come from? Why Shadow? If they wanted gun combat, wouldn't it make more sense for a character like Nack, Eggman, or one of the robots? ITS BECAUSE HE'S BLACK AND BLACK PEOPLE USE GUNS.
2. Maria. Only person on the planet Shadow actually liked. And you just know how black folk can't resist the white women.
3. The Black Arms. They're the bad guys, and the game makes it known well that they're black. They don't just say "The aliens are attacking", they have to say "the BLACK aliens are attacking". Also the "good" path has GUN as your ally, and the "evil" path has the Black Arms as your allies, but in the end good always prevails. Because the black dudes are eternally doomed to be kept down by THE MAN.
4. Rings? More like bling blings. Shadow needs to collect as much bling as he can to stay alive. Seriously, the whole premise of the game is to steal a bunch of big diamonds.
5. Just look at those tricked-out shoes. They gotta be Nikes. You just know he spent way too much on those.
6. The whole reason the GUN commander is so :):):):)ed at Shadow and ordered him to be shot on sight was because he stole Maria from him when they were kids. So we got a bunch of white dudes with guns all lookin to lynch one black guy because he loved a white woman?
7. For the first time in a Sonic game, you can beat up cops. And by that I mean Shadow can beat up cops. None of the partner characters will attack them. They have no problem attacking the BLACK aliens though.
8. Shadow can't swim. He's the ultimate lifeform, but he can't swim. He doesn't play hockey or ski either. I WONDER WHY?
9. The whole purpose of the vehicles in Shadow the Hedgehog is not for a useless and slower form of transportation, but for the sole purpose of doing drive-by's those motha-f***as.
10. Black Doom. If thats not a gangsta name, I don't know what is. He's even got the gold chains.
