We believe there is no place for hate in gaming. Everyone is entitled to their own beliefs and opinions, but tolerance should not extend to hate.
*Note: TSR, LLC is not related to the real TSR who created D&D and was later bought by Wizards of the Coast. It is a small business that named themselves that and is currently being sued by Wizards for trademark infringement.

Messages of hate
The images below are all tweets posted by Dave Johnson. They run the gamut from racism to hate against gay people, transgender people, Muslims, women, fat people, and others. He posts pro-Nazi memes, white supremacist messages, fears of the "great replacement" of white people, even a bizarre attack on dialysis patients.
His ideology of hate makes its way into his game products. It's less overt, until you know the context of his true feelings below. Star Frontiers New Genesis has eugenics, a Nordic master race, slavery, white supremacy dog whistles like an obsession with milk, a focus on "purity" and strength, and an organization the players must join called the Confederacy of Civilized People.
It all adds up to a disturbing pattern of hate that has no place in gaming.
