ppl in this thread are mad stupid.

the new game takes place in africa (or haiti, i dunno) and it features a white man k!lling nothing but black zombies.

based on the history of racism and racial stereotyping that's been so prevalent in all aspects of our culture, capcom should've realized that this entire premise can be viewed as a discourse of racism.

if anyone in this thread cannot understand that, again, you are an idiot that is not taking into account all of the racial imagery in the past.

also, to those ppl who say "oh, they're just zombies" then you too are not thinking. blacks have been stereotyped in all forms of media... i mean there have been studies that have found most black people are portrayed as athletes, musicians, and services workers in tv shows (and not in positions of higher power).. does someone look at this concept and say "oh hell, its just television"..

no, and no, they're not just zombies... the zombies are part of a larger story and you have to think of how the story itself can be viewed as racially flawed/detrimental.

ps3 game "Afrika"

You lose
Notice I said "and a few others".:applause:
There is a mmo computer game about ancient Africa(), thankfully, and a Cleopatra game being made but there still haven't been many creative steps taken towards having dark-skinned/African characters set in African stories in the mainsteam gaming market. Just like there isn't many Aztec, Mayan, or Inca games set up similar to God of War, Prince of Persia, Onimusha, etc.

This game is being made in Japan, by a Japanese company who could give a sh*t about racism...I'm sure they didn't give 2 fu*ks about what you might think about the game, or if your feelings would be hurt by the developments in the game's story line. This game doesn't have predetermined intentions on being racist...sorry if you or anyone else is offended by it...Don't buy it!! Simple solution...Now if the game was being developed in America by a White Supremest group, then I would understand the outrage.

Yea and? This is not the first Resident Evil game homie, zombies come in all colors shapes and forms. The first Resident Evil the zombies were all races. Nemesis had a freakin' monster in it. Haha, so are you telling me that Capcom should have chosen a different setting like Russia, China, some place in Asia or Europe and then it would be all good? Do you not understand that this is a game and it has a storyline, it's fiction...

Black people were depicted as such in certain sitcoms, movies and what not. Sad thing is sometimes these movies were created by black people. Need an example? I bet you don't complain about the movie Friday. How about blaxploitation movies where black people were depicted as drug dealers? It's pointless to complain about one thing but say it's okay with another. Is it only okay for black people to be detrimental to themselves?

Discourse of racism? Only to those who allow it to be, end of story...

"i mean there have been studies that have found most black people are portrayed as athletes, musicians, and services workers in tv shows (and not in positions of higher power).."

That may be a reflection of the way society is. America, for example, is very biased towards all things descended from Europe. If you look in your history book in school, it says that Christopher Columbus, Vikings, and other European explorers were the first to discover the Americas. That couldn't be further from the truth. There is evidence that many African people came to America before anybody else. There is even a document written by an explorer that sits at Harvard University that describes Native Americans in the south such as the Wash*taw as having dreadlocks and looking close to many Africans. People from Carthage in North Africa have depictions of new lands found to the west. We got all this info yet I African people never get credited with the discovery of America. It's a damn shame. Too many people are ignorant and neglectful when it comes to African and African American contributions that have been made around the world dating back thousands of years ago.
