“I’m blind, Carl, not stupid.”

From: Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas

Genre: Video Games

Who said it?: Wu Zi Mu/”Woozie”

The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. The Grand Theft Auto series is basically an open world video game franchise more focused on performing criminal acts. This has made the game very notorious but still incredibly fun. Additionally, each game in the series has a long overarching story. In San Andreas, you play as Carl “CJ” Johnson, a young man who get roped into doing illegal activities. But he has a goal to make something of himself.

The quote comes from the middle of the game. CJ (voiced by Young Maylay) is friends with the Trial leader, Wu Zi Mu AKA “Woozie” (voiced by James Yaegashi). During the cutscene of the mission entitled Amphibious Assault, CJ gets Woozie to admit he blind (although it’s very obvious he is). Before he leaves, CJ asks Woozie if he knows he’s not Chinese. This is when Woozie delivers the quote.

Geek wisdom: Like with racism, sexism and ageism, do not judge a person by his disability. Even someone who’s blind can be super skilled at something you know nothing about and you may never know how good he or she can really be despite or even because of their disability.
