Not Enough Options For Black Sim Characters? A Black Woman Fixed That
This gamer didn’t see herself in The Sims. So she created content to fill the void. pic.twitter.com/kLWIbzXj8n

Leave it up to a Black woman to fulfill a void. If you’ve ever played The Sims, the video game that allows you to build houses, decorate them, and then build people, dress them, and craft their personalities and orchestrate their daily lives. Basically, it was a way to play God.
And since quite a few of us have a god complex anyway, it was a source of great entertainment. But if you’ve ever gone about the task of creating a Sim, you probably realized that the options for Black folk were limited. And by limited I mean there was one Black skin tone, one or two hairstyles that were Black. And one of them was a high top fade…before that was back in fashion. In a word it was outdated.
Thankfully, Amira Virgil not only noticed the problem, she had the skills and expertise to do something about it and thus the forum Black Simmer, was born.
See what she did in the video above.
Check out what she’s been able to do with the game using Black Simmer on the following pages.

. Eclipse _ I feel myself getting angrier as I leave the house. My blood boils over a little more as the conversation replays in my head. A mother that didn’t want me. She has no idea what my mother wanted. She doesn’t know why I was given up, or if I was given up at all. I could’ve been kidnapped for all she knows. • Regardless of the circumstance, she has no right to throw it in my face. Yes, I did look for her everyday, but what child wouldn’t? That’s my mom, my real mom, and I know that any biological sibling I have wouldn’t talk to me like that! Especially over Mehki’s no good ass! • No. I can’t be thinking like this. I need to calm down. I don’t want to hurt myself again. I want to thrive and be healthy. I want to grow and gain. I don’t want to lose out on something special because of a dumb girl, even if that girl is my sister. As a matter of fact, I should go home. I need to go home. . . . . . . . 💋#Sims #Sims4 #Ts4 #Simmer #BlackSimmer #BlackSims #UrbanSims #Simstagram #SimStories #SimsLegacy💋
