how can you be racist against Africans? unless of course u mean black people, otherwise i guess we cant have medal of honour becuase its shows germans being slaughtered.

and the majority of k!llings in africa is black>white,(or black>black) there is even an untold genocide against white ppl in south africa,includind the hero nelson mandella calling for black ppl 2 k!ll the whites inhis native tongue, then speaking an entirely different message to the congregated western media. but of course its never on the news.

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.
deal with it, if you let somebody hurt you with WORDS then you're a bi*ch plain and simple. And like everyone else has been saying where were you when GTA SA was released, you didnt make a fuss about that game now did you? Quit overthinking sh*t and thinking theres some kind of undertone when there isnt. Everyone trying to claim racism is reaching real hard with something that isnt even remotely evident in the game.

start the kids young........ fu*kin parents if you're that concerned why would you give your fu*kin stupid kid a game made for adults?

99% percent of the time this type of article is bullsh*t because they don't get it. sometimes they don't even get it when there's reason to be offended.

Not here to debate whether the game is racist or not since I haven't played it. I do find it rather ironic there wasn't this outrage on here over a game like Grand Theft Auto- San Andreas that had brothers k!lling brothers. That's a real issue and problem in the black community that's been there for years that only gets worse. Not taking anything away from the RE debates but this tunnel vision black folks have where sh*t is only worth being outraged about when it's done by a white man is kind of ridiculous. Maybe one day we'll all be ready to look in the mirror and start putting our own people in check instead of always putting all the blame on everyone/everything else.

Anyone who views this as racist is an idiot.

We've had white zombies and spaniard zombies, now it's African zombies. Who the fu*k cares?

I mean i could understand if the previous games didn't have white or brown zombies how some idiot could get confused. But how can you even entertain the idea this is racism when previous games have had white people and that being blown to pieces?

Damn, whats with the arguing?

You say what you think and move on. Its called an OPINION!

If you ask me, I would say it could be fu*king racist. To say that just because its a game means that it doesnt stem to racism is dumb as hell. Major corporations and businesses are racist! All they do is exploit or make fun of people of "color". And on the other hand maybe it wasnt racist. Maybe the plot of the game is taking place where there is predominantly "black" people. Now, there go 2 sides to this sh*t.

Being that this thread has made 100+ comments shows that there is something wrong when the matter of race is spoken about. And then alot of you say "Its just a game". Well it seems like some of you are very sensitive about this "game".

So everybody gets this angry when black people are depicted as infected zombies...but it's not that bad when GTA:SA depicts an actual stereotype. A black west coast flannel shirt wearin' gangsta shooting up his own people and everybody in site, lol.

no they exploit everyone, and the ppl who are madefun of mostly these days are white ppl, so stop pullin those little excuses out of the bag, your time has passed

and ye san andreas was racist, he shouldve been an acountant instead of the stereotypical black male living in poverty, the game wouldve been much better

It obviously treads in sensitive territory and is in keeping with the stereotypes people have about Africans, but I'll give it the benefit of the doubt and say this is just due to what the circumstances of the game are, rather than being intentionally racist. Obviously, it's taken place in other parts of the word, it just happens to be when you use Africa (or Haiti), it takes on a slightly different meaning due to the stereotypes that are common about those places. Still, even unintentional, I don't particularly like it, people can say it's just a game or whatever, but entertainment media plays a big part in disseminating and reinforcing stereotypes, and these images in the mind of someone who already hold stereotypes and isn't very intelligent are a reinforcing influence in my opinion. I wouldn't be for some kind of forced censoring though, I just think it's an unfortunate choice they made.
