    Well said, skin color had nothing to do with his talent, and I never get the whole race card garbage anyway, the race is human and you're part of it or not. There is no need for special skin color shade of human month whichever it is. My mom surprised me as I never thought she liked games more than Pac-Man or SMB when we got the NES in the 80s, but one day I found out not only did her best friend have a console at her place for when we were bored, but my mom had the same one boxed up in the garage which I resurrected -- Fairchild Channel F 2 and it was ugly as sin and very based buzzy audio but it has some really fun games on those 8track looking carts. He did pioneer something great.

    He should be remembered for inventing the cartridge, which essentially set up the business model for the more successful home consoles.
