so its cool if the main character was black? would that be promoting black on black violence? im sorry, people just need to realize theres not a fu*king underlying messege under everything that happens. just take things at face value, the game is in Haiti, ur not gunna have asians or middle eastern people running wild. im sorry, but its very stupid to me. its fu*king sad in my opinion,
the fact that african american's think everything thats created that has black dudes in it is just a ploy/scheme by the white man to bring the black community to their knees. im not in any way racist, but cmon yall, this is reaching.
First off I didn't say it would totally alleviate the problem if the main character was black. When you see a Caucasian male just k!lling a bunch of blacks, it automatically triggers an offense to many African Americans. If the character was black, it wouldn't be as so blatant as to what we see now.

And you also need to stop generalizing everything that deals with African American people.

Me personally as a black man, i can tolerate it cuz i possess the necessary knowledge and i know the history of the videogame franchise.

Otha people, which in general are idiotic sheep, can't handle this type of content. Black or white or whateva.

The game is cool with me. But i can UNDERSTAND why some people would be mad. I mean damn, this sh*t actually happened in world history. Whether its Haiti or Africa. White folks ravaged BOTH lands tryin' to lay the law. And now due to this game, its somewhat simulated. And the game DOES reinforce racial stereotypes. And last thing we need as a culture is a videogame where a whiteman is murkin' a Black village. We need more positive images of our people, and this aint helping.

And even if the black community accepted the game. U still got the racist a**holes out there that will exploit the situation. If this game has online capabilities, i know exactly what ima get into..... racist a.ss gamers (mainly white) talkin' sh*t about k!llin black people in large numbers.

Off first impressions, I dont think America is prepared for this type of content. But ima wait til i play the game and then i can truely judge if this game's premise is justifiable.

You can say fu*k me all you want. The game will be released. People will buy it and the world will continue to spin. Me working for the actual company that makes the game will only make my job a little bit harder, which is fine.

As a matter of fact you can call the Capcom building and I will personally answer your questions about the game and the company itself. Just to prove that the company is not racist.

Your one of those annoying black people that ask why the puck in hockey is black. This is coming from somebody who is black. Shut the fu*k up.
indeed....

rac·ism /ˈreɪsɪzəm/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[rey-siz-uhm] Pronunciation Key - Show IPA Pronunciation
–noun
1. a belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
thats the definition for racism off of dictionary.com
ok so all of u screaming racism here read the definition of the word your using.
whatyou guys are saying is that since your race has been opprsed more then other races in the past you have the right BY RACE to accuse others of being inttolerant to other races. meanwhile you fit the description of a racist by doing so. your not letting any other race be elligible for being hurt by race just because your race has suffored more. thats like waiting in line at a football game after you drank LOTS of beer and theres a long line of people waiting outside the door but, you have the privillage to go first without waiting in line JUST because you have to pee more then everyone else. WTF is that? your saying that the spaniards have suffored some racism but cant comlain about it JUST cus they didnt get it as bad.but blacks on the other hand whooa whooa wit up everyone dont be mean to them or treat them the SAME way as you would treat everyone else in this world cus theyre people have suffored a lot in the past 100 years. but hey look there comes a mexican lets make a bunch of resturants based around a stereotype that all they eat is tacos and name it taco-bell, and make a bunch of movies were the latinos are always either illiterate, sombrero wearing dumbasses who cant understand a word your saying, or a bunch of gangsters who love talking weird and wearing skully hats in the middle of a californian summer. you are idiots if u think re5 has an underling tone of racism.

and by the way its in fu*kig haiti haitians are not considerd AFRICAN there from haiti and when was the last time you looked in a history book and seen a bunch of white people walking around in haiti with one or 2 hatians in the picture? its in haiti so theres gonna be haitian zombies. it wouldnt make sense if if you set RE up in china and seen a bunch of GUATEMALAN zombies eating everyones brains. there is no undertone of racism here your just looking to hard for someting and trying to make very distant points connect to help you pull the race card just so u can bi*ch about it. what are you gonna do about this issue? your just calling out racism so you can have something to complain about to other people and have people feel bad about you for something you have never experienced on the SAME level as the africans living in the 50's. did you experience that same type of racism on a daily bassis? no i highly doubt u have so just be gratefull that u havent and know that you arent facing that same type of racism because it dosnt exist like that anymore.

orriginaly posted by T.O.N.Y.

alright ima jus throw out a completely hypothetical situation, and tell me if you white people would be offended...

so a few hundred years ago a bunch of africans sailed to europe, rounded up a bunch of caucasian slaves and dispersed them throughout the western hemisphere

the caucasians worked as slaves for hundreds of years making this new found land flourish and become the richest nation in the world, but then the caucasians got tired of it and rose up, a huge war was fought, and then the blacks reluctantly ended slavery,

but even after slavery was done things werent the same, caucasians were forced to live in the worst slums of america w/ the worst schools so that even today hundreds of years later, there is still disenfranchized caucasians, and there is still a lot of hate and animosity between caucasians and blacks(some who still think caucasians are inferior and should still be slaves)

then a game comes out, and it depicts a black character going back to europe to k!ll infected caucasians, ur telling me u wouldnt be slightly bothered by that?

iam not black, and i do NOT think this game is racist, iam just saying in that context there will undoubtedly be blacks who will feel uncomfortable about this game (and rightfully so)...and there will be whites who use it as some sort of fantasy land doing sh*t they wish they could actually do in real life..to jus come out n say no its not racist stop talking about the issue is naive and stupid
theres one thing wrong with this but i kept in mind that this is completely hypotehical, but for some reason i cant help but think your trying to make this a reversed version of the situation at hand. the situation at hand being that a few ahundred years ago white american men went to africa and rounded up a bunch of them to make into slave and so on and so on. well in your scenario a black man goes back to europe and k!lls a bunch of white guys, your saying that this white charecter is going back to africa? and k!lling a bunch of africans? im pretty sure this game takes place in haiti and NOT in africa. if anything your racist and your post proves it cus what u really want is to switch places and have all the white men be replaced with black men and vice versa so u can feel your superior to everyone else.

The main reason why it looks bad is because of the fact that the main character is white so some people automatically get the vibe of a racist undertone for the game. This could have been the perfect time to introduce a main dark-skinned character because there's never been a black or dark-skinned RE main character that I can remember. By doing this, it wouldn't have made the game look any better though. It would have looked like 'black on black' crime instead of direct racism. Another reason why it looks bad is because of the position that most black or dark skinned people around the world are in today as opposed to ancient times when we dominated. If the main character was 'Cablanasian' would you be happy?
It's time to stop hollering "racist' and start actually makin games where you might get to play as a black character in a positive role other than crime and sports games and the sh*t you usually see us in. Why can't Japanese, Korean, American, European developers ever add a dark-skinned/black character in a main character role in action/adventure games? There aren't too many video game studios in Africa yet as a result of colonialism, sickness, drought, etc. so it would automatically be harder for developers over there to produce mainstream video games depicting black characters in black stories, especially since video games are expensive to make(millions).

How about you Stand your a.ss up, and stop being a pus*y for a fu*king game, defending a damn Disc over someone cultural History, Pride, Integrity, Pedigree doesnt make no damn sense. people are obviously offended by RE5 and they have reason to be, We as a people have to draw the line when our cultural history is infringe upon to make a profit. This game is not necessary, Capcom is one of the leading developers in the gaming industry, Their imagination is not that limited, where this is their only means to make a profit. I respect creativity, it spurs competition which betters society, but RE5 is closeminded on so many levels.
ok so explain to me how capcom is EXPLITING the cultural pride of the african race by making a game set in haiti were a virus has SIMPLY made its way to haiti? stop making yourself feel important because your black and coincidentaly your people have faced many strugles in the past so you feel like u can loot of of that fact. if you keep reminding people of racism then your obviously noticing race and thinking that some races are higher or lower then othere right? so tell me please what race do you think your superior to? is it the aryans, the jews, the polish, the latinos. please which one of these do you see yourself higher over that u can say hey dont make a game about us being k!lled, but make it about that race over there. just shut the fu*k up about race and stop letting it thrive man. if u really want something to cry about cry about our fu*ked up government and its fu*ked up lies. ive said it before and ill say it again your helping the real oppresors flurish because your too buisy with insignificant issues in your life and in turn you dont see the real problems unfolding infront of u like high gas prices and inflation. sh*tty a.ss minimum wage, aids/hiv, its a fu*king video game about k!lling zombies that just so happen to be hatian.
