This is stupid beyond belief. Just chuck in some token white zombies and placate the positive discrimination Nazis.

Most Black or Asian people I know find postive discrimination offensive, anyway.

And, of course, the game is made in Japan, by Japanese people.

There is no way this game is racist.  Black people are in the game because of location only.
Yes. Power shifts more quickly than some people think.

Peace through Power!

You know how black people are... a white person says "Nigger" and they kill him, a black person says the same thing and they're ok with it... white people make a zombie game with black zombies, it's racism, if the game were made by black people, it would be ok :D

Technically, everyone's skin is just a lighter or darker shade of brown. Our skin pigment is due to levels of melanin (sp?), which, just to letcha know, is brown.  :)

Maybe someone should make a game that is CLEARLY racist against Caucasians, and see if anyone gives a ****?
Well, in both Zoo Tycoon games, only white adult males can be eaten by escaped animals.  (I know this because I commonly "accidentally" delete fence pieces.)
Oh, and in Roller Coaster Tycoon 3,  only white adult males can drown in lakes.  (The 'move guest' option is very entertaining....)

Idiots like that woman make me want to kill people who yell "RACISM!11". Like black people calling white people "white trash", "white boy", etc., but people want to lynch a white man if he yells "Nigger!" at a black man.

New weapon confirmed for RE5: “Fried Chicken”

Details on Capcom’s upcoming game Resident Evil 5 are sparse, but a new weapon has been confirmed. Fried Chicken comes in either cases of 3 or buckets of 10 which are scattered throughout the game, or sometimes dropped by defeated enemies. A piece of Fried Chicken can be thrown like a grenade or dropped. Any enemies in the vicinity (who can see or smell it) will immediately be attracted to it, and converge upon its location, dropping whatever they are doing at the moment.
If there are multiple enemies in the area, they will viciously attack each other.
No way is it racist to blacks. I myself am black and it seems that ignorant people quickly assume that they're killing blacks so the game has to be racist.

One thing that people forget to notice is the stereotype put into RE:4.
Stereotypical European people were used and for that matter most of all Re games in the franchise were clearely white.



I know not a video game screen shot but most concist of white zombies, and back then i have heard no complaints of being racist in any way.

But when the concept of RE: 5 came along things got out of context. anyone who thinks they are racist then go ahead and say so but go labeling the game design as such when you haven't even played it yet!! >:( And for those who just read this I am sorry for ranting... just had to blow of some steam. And Smileyman watch your mouth, just trying to keep you out of trouble you know! ;)

Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

The whole "It's only racist if they're black" thing is due to the fact that white people are considered the standard as far as society goes, therefore it's not considered to be anti-white to kill whites unless you make a specific point of it. It's like if I say "bread", you probably didn't think wholemeal - you just thought up any old bread, most likely white bread; yet the type didn't matter. Same principle.

I thought of Breadcat... that's bad, isn't it?

Also, this lady's just plain stupid. Is SHE black? If so, she's misunderstanding the situation, and taking it out of context. It's weird, and wrong, and she should get more informed (and get out more in general). If she's NOT (which I believe) then isn't she being racist, by defending black people? What say does she have in this? I'd say she doesn't deserve a blog.

This is quite stupid, I'd say.

This site is clearly stupid. Take a look at this article. The article itself is about someone who decided to be vegan without really knowing what it is.

Quote
But what about the drums in the band are they not made of animal skins? I need help on that one but maybe I am only a “food vegan“?
Quote
Do I have the right to deprive her of the dried meaty dog food she loves and turn her into a vegan dog?

one of the comments (#4 to be precise) is about how most vegan sites are racist so the writer of the post made a blog specifically for black vegans. I left a nice post in comment #8 for her.

EDIT: Found this on her blog:

Back near the beginning of this blog, I wrote about how Vegetarian Journal exotified Asian foods & seemed, in doing so, to be writing from a viewpoint that centered non-Asian — probably white — American experience & culture.


I think we can all agree that she is explicitly looking for racism in every corner of semantics.

I have a hard time taking that blog's opinion on anything that might remotely be seen as racist - or sexist for that matter-  serious when it is called Black Looks and on the left side is a variety of links for African Lesbians. Not saying that it is a bad thing however it might be a little biased.

From the Geicko school of thought... I made this...




EDIT - Now that I think about it, I'm onboard with the angry racist crowd. This game promotes the feeling that all black zombies should kill all white people, and that would be a race and hate crime!

-Lego

That's an unexpecting pic right there. Like I said on the movie, I really think there isn't any racism involved in some junk such as this.
