Cause its black. Ever since the ps1, which no one had a problem with, into the ps2, which was black, people have been horrible to it. When i talk to my black friends, they have always loved the ps2/3. When i talk to white people, they hate it and just start going off about how much it costs and one took some guys job had secks with his wife. Coincidence? I think not. Racism? I believe so.
