Default "Mayan Race". No.

The predictions of the ancient Mayan race, which stated that the world would end yesterday, were proved wrong at midnight when nothing much happened. Wrestling analysts had suggested that the end of the world would have had a "significant" negative impact upon the business.

No representatives of the Mayans were available to comment.

The Mayans were a civilization, not a race. Lets please remove this offensive artifact and pretend it was always correct the whole time, eh? It's pretty offensive. Cheers!

I do hope you are joking about an in-game joke and not being serious.

Ok well how do I put this without punching too hard......

In order for something to be found offensive the party that is offended has to be present. Now since there is no Mayan (civilization nor race) how are they going to be offended by the joke? While there is descendants of the Mayan people that are around today to say that someone is offended by that joke is completely ludicrous. Those descendants have assimilated into other cultures and don't identify themselves as such anymore. That is the same as white knighting for the Mesopotamians or Neanderthals. Its just comes off as reaching for something to complain about.


Here is a video that might help you
