IMHO the only racists are the ones who see this as racism. While watching the trailer never once did i think about it being a white guy killing a bunch of black people until i read crap like this. My thoughts were more like "awesome another RE game with what might be actual zombies in it."

the above seems to state what the author of the article was trying to say...and this was part of my response to plagiarize:

... All this article brings into question is the very relevant idea that race DOES play a major role in society (globally) and because of the history of exploitation in Africa one would be smart to question the game makers choices here. As this article seems to do...


And even if race does play a factor in the game, that does not mean that the game is racist. Race plays a role in literature such as "Othello", "Amistad", and "All in the Family." Some people will always argue that the presence of one racist character implies racism, unless that one character is an archetypal maniacal villain.

Could the game BE racist? Yeah, not one of us has played it to say that it is not. But none of us can say that it is racist, either, and I still believe in innocent until proven guilty.

Utter clap-trap.

Everyone is hypersensitive about race. Please, all you hand-wringing, Uber PC- alarmists take a deep breath and go hang yourself in the shower.
