Aug 4 - Resident Evil 5 Promoting Racism Agaisnt Africans?

The new Resident Evil video game depicts a white man in what appears to be Africa k!lling Black people. The Black people are supposed to be zombies and the white man’s job is to destroy them and save humanity. “I have a job to do and I’m gonna see it through.”

This is problematic on so many levels, including the depiction of Black people as inhuman savages, the k!lling of Black people by a white man in military clothing, and the fact that this video game is marketed to children and young adults. Start them young… fearing, hating, and destroying Black people.
Capcom is crossing the line with this one. Racism is high among gamers from what I can tell. Logging on to Xbox live to play a game, I'd come across people calling me a zzzzzz and other racial slurs. You can't turn on the tv without someone sterotyping black people these days, Hip-Hop, Don Imus, Viacom (BET). Putting this game amongst ignorant people is just going to create more racial tension.

Violence against black people with a white character? Sounds like the KKK and other hate groups have a new tool for their youth.

What happened to the racial diversity among games like this?

17 years of age is young. 20 years of age is young. Games in general are for the youth to enjoy. Not to mention how many of yall had older relatives buy mature games for you? Chill out.

The problem is that african americans are always looking to point the finger at the white man. There will always be racism in the world from blacks to whites to asians to indians but calling this racist is pure stupidity.
Those who condone racism are ignorant, I'm sorry for your online XBOX experience.

If this was a black marine k!lling whites do you think they would be crying racism?

Can someone not visualize this game being used as a tool of hate and widespread ignorance? Imagine just playing online with a game like this, some guy is going to scream "Yeah k!ll those zzzzzzs!" or some other sh*t like that. It's just rediculous to imagine the results from this game's release.

Resident Evil 4 was straight to me. Not to be offensive to Spanish people, but they were along with the rest of the Europeans enslaving blacks in the Americas. They don't have the history of racial tension among others like blacks. It's just disturbing to see a Caucasion male against a group of blacks who are all disease ridden zombies.

One, lets nevermind the fact that most mummies are in Africa, and disregard the fact that zombies are a.ssociated with mummies. Also, lets disregard that for the last 10 years the zombies have been white. So its no racism when white people are getting k!lled?? Dont just pull the race card everytime something different is done.

i can deffinetly imagine it like that...but thats in the minds of the players. If capcom really wasn't trying to be racist they'd throw in a black protagonist. Online play has always been racist not only to blacks but to mexicans and asians (on certain occations). Capcom really should be more careful with their plots and race choice but its probably too late and would be too expensive and too impractical to change.

I already made a thread exploiting the racist storyline of RE5, But that punkass MOD Jann Lee deleted my sh*t. It shame we are willing to overlook the bigger pictures for a few extra hours of gratification.

Residents Evil 5 Is Racist Plain and simple

Yet the game couldn't have a main character that is native to the home of the problem? Nope. That would have eased up the sitation the game is presenting.

I believe Capcom had no intentions on making this game racist in any way possible. It's just that they're going to have an issue with localizing this game for the United States. I don't believe developers in Japan have much knowledge of the history of African Americans. Well they're about to find that out soon enough.

I condone to video game violence, but you can't just say you're a racist only when playing video games.
