In my 29 years on this planet, there is definitely one thing I've learned about black people - it's always gonna be a no-win situation with them.

The way the game is now, they're screaming it's racist because it depicts a white man shooting black people. If you reversed the roles, they'd say it's racist because it depicts a black man shooting white people. If you just made the hero and all the enemies white, they'd say it's racist because there's no black people in the game. If you made everyone in the game black, they'd say it's racist because it depicts black people killing each other.

Sorry if this offends any black members, here.




as an african canadian, I support this message. We're never gonna win. I personally don't believe that RE5 is racist. I think this is a pointless uproar, though capcom should of been more careful. Personally I perfer my race NOT doing the shooting. Also, I believe capcom should of unleashed cool african american characters like how mk did. "Tanya, Jax, Darrius<meh..."

I meant "white" people are never going to win, in regards to satisfying black people.

i dont know if capcom trying to be racist or not but u got to think of the storyline is in africa were most of the people skin is black
and zombies are mindless whether they are black or white and chris is trying to destroy the virus to prevent it from infecting other people so he is protecting the world and africa

and please do not think of me as a racist person

So much prejudice towards African American people today and we can't just deny it and say that is is out of our concern. Don't be indifferent http://livecustomwriting.com/blog/racism-today-essay-racism-and-xenophobia
