Robert Bowie Johnson, Jr. is an American game designer, military veteran, and author. He graduated from West Point and served as an airborne ranger in Vietnam. He is the author of The Parthenon Code: Mankind's History in Marble and Noah in Ancient Greek Art.
According to his October 18, 2009 article in Americanthinker.com, Johnson claims that the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People, and the National Organization for Women considered his board game Public Assistance to be "callous, racist, sexist, and a 'vicious brand of stereotyping.'" and that the executive director of American Public Welfare Association encouraged his employees to inform others about the game and to encourage game store owners not to carry the game.
