People need to stop being such crybabies when it comes to the color of a persons' skin, especially with a bloody video game for christsake.

Agreed, Its set in Africa, of course there's going to be a large amount of infected Africans. In Crysis it was all N.Koreans. If RE5 was in the North Pole and all the infected were black, then that would be considered racist..... on the other hand.... WHO CARES JUST MAKE A GOOD GAME. Personally I thought RE5 sucked.

white american press and american gamers don't seem to be worried so much and say "it's just a game" , ofcourse , it's not their race being hatred upon and they seem to like to shoot their wrath at those images in the game.

Example is everything above this post.

Well if that's the way you look at it, you should probably shut yourself in for the rest of your life, because every movie you ever watch will be racist. What you're pretty much saying is that it's not racist because of who is in it, but because of the country it's set in. It would be stupid to set a game in Africa then populate your game world with white Americans. You expected them to set the game in Africa then randomize the population?

Nobody. NOBODY looked at it as hatred towards Africans. 90% of the people who called this game racist only did so because they saw white people shooting black people. There was never any other reason to call it racist, just like 90% of people in real life call a crime committed by a white person against a black person is automatically a hate crime.

Please. Calling RE5 racist was irrational. There was no excuse for it besides looking for an argument or something to cry about.

Sheesh, for gods sake its a digital Zombie, who gives a damn if its black/white/brown so long as their fun to shoot at. Its 2010 already, issues about racial discrimination are getting obsolete. We're becoming a united race and the future color is brown. Just enjoy the game and shut up please.

What amazes me is, you don't explain why it is racist, you just make a blatant attempt to make yourself look like an ass. How are they hated on? Do they have them running around eating chicken, pimping whores and drinking grape drink? No, they have Africans in Africa, just like it was for 4. Seriously, if this was any race other than What it is, it would be ok, but because it isn't, we all hear about the shit for 2 years. Can't wait for them to make 6 take place in America and watch like one of the many races in it take it personally.

"We can't please everyone. We're in the entertainment business - we're not here to state our political opinion or anything like that. It's unfortunate that some people felt that way." <-- I prefer that Capcom.

If you want to alleviate racism, getting angry at actual racists is a better expenditure of time and energy. Getting angry at the first opportunity over anything that seems even vaguely racist just steers people away from you.

Inocorrect. Blackness is the absent of all light. Black color-wise is a mixture of darker hues of primary colors on the color wheel. I've always started with Ultramarine Blue.

INCORRECT AGAIN! Without light there is no colour!
