    Girls can play Monopoly

    The banker doles out $1,900 in Monopoly Money to each female player and $1,500 to each male. The gap continues every time a player passes go with women collecting $240 and men $200.

    Instead of investing in real estate properties like the classic game, players invest in inventions and innovations made by women, including chocolate chip cookies, bulletproof vests, solar heating and ladies’ modern shapewear.

    The senior director of global brand strategy and marketing for Hasbro Gaming did admit that it's also possible that a boy wins the game.

    They are planning on rolling out Asian-opoly before the end of the year.

    The banker doles out $1,700 in Monopoly Money to each white player and $1,500 to each Asian. The gap continues every time a player passes go with whites collecting $229 and Asians $200.

    Instead of investing in real estate properties like the classic game, players invest in things like a solar panel company, LED manufacturer, and a Nike sweatshop.

    Families can choose to give everyone the same amount if they choose. It's also possible that an Asian wins the game.

    “It’s a way that families can talk about what is happening around them, and it’s an easy way to explain to their kids, white or Asian, what has maybe happened to them over the years and what they’ve been experiencing”

    An avid Monopoly player, Molly Smith also said she was “appalled” to learn more about the racial pay gap.

    “I never put the dots together and realized it was that much of a gap,” Smith said. “I think it’s super important to talk about equal pay and that there’s no such thing as whites’ subjects and Asians’ subjects.”

    I watched the Saints game on Monday night from the bar at my hotel, and they had one TV on Fox News. I looked over at one point late in the game and that blond white supremacist woman was going on about how Drew Brees was under attack from "the left". So they have that as well

I'm supposed to somehow work today when this is happening, when left wingers are out there, buying this game?? ahhh I'm so fucking mad right now! Just play regular Monopoly, iron my shirt, and make me dinner, jesus is it that hard?
