After surfing the web i found an interesting page that states that some people think that the upcoming game Resident Evil 5 is racist. Apparently in the game you play as Chris Redfield a character from one of the prior RE games. In the latest installment of the game you are set in the africa where the zombie stain has reached the locals and all hell has broken loose. What people seem to find racist about this game from the prior games is that a white man is killing african amerians.

If you check on google you'll find a bunch of articles on it.

In my opinion the people who think of that as racist is just ignorant, its just a game.

So what do you crunchyrollers think?

Well, he is in Africa so it makes sense that the locals would be Africans. But I would say that I think maybe the creators are trying to reflect something about our real world today just like in RE4. I am not trying to say that they are trying to propogate racism though.

In RE4, you were killing Spanish zombie-things...I don't see what difference it makes if it's Africans. I'm African American myself and I have no problem with that. So please, don't fuck everything up, PTA moms. >_>

I don't think it's racist at all, the person who thought it was racist should get an e-slap.
