Resident Evil 5 Racist?

1 min read

Oh look some black empowerment website has a problem with a video game… Because it’s racist. What a suprise…

This is problematic on so many levels, including the depiction of Black people as inhuman savages, the killing 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.

Strange that we heard nothing from you when the zombies where white, or when Cole is an equal member of Alpha squad in Gears. No that’s all fine but dare somebody portray black people badly in a video game and you go nuts.

Try to wrap your head around the fact that this is not a white vs black game. This is a game about people being turned into zombies and needing to be killed. Racism is a despicable thing and should not be trivialised like this. Grow up.

    ROFL! Its just a GAME! My word…

    GTA: San Andreas and Manhunt are also “just games”, but people were offended and apparently influenced.

    I guess this is ok, I think Jack Thompson is racist, so as long as it’s NOT made by Rockstar, it’ll pass.

    Do Zombies qualify for “Human Rights” at all btw?

    LOL!!! this is IT! Ok, WTF is up with “black people” and the race factory. I really don’t give a crap if i was playing a game where black people are better then white people in every way, and white people are slaves etc… IT A GOD DAM GAME! Lord, if it’s fun, and graphics are good, who gives a shit?

    It’s like White people dare not say the “N” or “K” word, but, honestly, not many white people would care if black people called us, racists names.

    This whole race thing is to blown up to a FAR extreme… I mean, SO WHAT if you guys got enslaved 400 years ago? or you didn’t have equal rights 10-20 years ago? It’s over, and now, the government wants BEE to make the black race get equal chances? What a joke… I mean If they couldn’t do anything in the 13 years that equal rights has been around, the nothing will…

    If it was real… maybe pose a problem, but it’s a game!

    If this is SOOO bad, then why don’t you make it a bunch of white people, get infected, and get the blacks shoot them, but that would be racist coz the black are out numbered, or they don’t have the right guns, or the right medical care, or there’s water, or the didn’t get well fair, or they went on strike to get better pay to save the world, or to etc…

    Grow up,

    God, what a joke!

    let’s make the zombies german… no-one seems to be offended with games with German enemies.

    while we’re on the topic of racism… check this out.

    now…honestly…imagine GTA with taxis in it. I’d have a field day and not because i’m racist but because i hate taxis (who doesn’t). would be nothing better then opening fire into a taxi…and don’t lie – we’ve all thought about it

  • DarkDragonZA

    This is childish as always its taken out of context and made to come of as being racist. Its getting really old grow-up.

  • DarkDragonZA

    You know I actually saw this coming, but with Far Cry 2. I knew somewhere someone was going to have bitch fit.
