Funny thing... They don't even know why the black people in the game are "savages and helpless imbeciles". I refuse to acknowledge this statement as made by a person who does not even know on which consoles the game is coming out.

The way I see it, this is just another fuss created by people with interest in holding back future sales on RE 5. Its just... too stupid to be a serious statement. Either that or it's just another of those guys who want to keep the racial wars as fired up as possible, so they might have any contact with the media.

It's a video game.. Africa is where the game is set, and there's hardly any white people there so people need to stop whining, and black people need to stop pulling the race card for anything.

I don't care whether it is Aricans or Asians or Europeans or Americans or Aliens or whatever.

The most important thing is sense of horror in the game along with the sense of action.

That's what I want from CAPCOM's Resident Evil 5. Can they provide it on time? I doubt it.

Theres racism cause they are looking for it. If a group of black men beat up a white man or a white woman then its not racism but as soon as a white person or group beats up a black person its racism. One time i saw a black man at a bar hit on a guys g/f in front of him, he told him to back off and have some respect, and the black guy took a swing and the white guy kicked his butt nine ways of sunday. He went a little overboard and broke his leg and one of his ribs with a pool stick, and what did that little punk black guy do when the cops arrive? "ITS RACISM" whiny assss mother*****. You can't stand up to them cause then they cry wolf (racism). Why cant they take their beatings like men and man up?

I don't suppose anyone of the people who call CAPCOM "racist" have stopped to think that by doing that in the first place, they are themselves, being incredibly racist. I am dead serious, they are discriminating against ANYONE who worked on the game, and anyone who will play it, period.

Another thing the "savages and helpless imbeciles" statement is so full of shit..my god. How much you want to bet, that who ever wrote that fine piece of work doesn't know what HAPPENED to the villagers? [Viral outbreak] and thus MUTATING them into what they became. Also, I would hardly call a video game character, who can beat through a wall with a lead pipe, or use a chainsaw, machete or other homemade weapon, helpless. this is just so, so wrong.

Why wasn't anyone complaining when you had to kill a bunch of white or spanish zombies in the other Resident Evil titles?

well i dont want to be rude or nothing but black people had been slaves for some time while the white called us *bleep*(srry for the language). we sometimes think that the police (ussaly white) pulls us over in a good car and says its stolen cause were black.. where i am from white people live here but the whites rarely get pulled over... sooo yaaa... i hope i didnt make anyone feel bad of angry thanks for reading my response

I don't understand the logic behind these sorts of arguments. I suppose I could see their point if Resident Evil 5 was being created by a mostly white company. But it's not... It's being created by a Japanese company, so the argument that it's racist having a white man kill black men is void, since the creators are neither white or black.

For those of you who want to use this as a reason to insult blacks, there are plenty of anti-ethnic sites for you! This all started By a WHITE LADY who decided to play the "white guilt card"....So blaming blacks wont help..if the media stops adding fueling to the flame then non of this wont matter..

oh please. up until this point all zombies in RE have been white. just cause they decide to make black ones for once all of a sudden Capcom is racist? so there are no black ppl that work for Capcom either then? yeah sure...

what an utterly ridiculous argument.
