I'm sure the lot of you have seen the screenshots,
Everyone is up in arms about the latest in the resident Evil Series. Seems That Capcom thought it would be fun to have the game loosely based off of some fictional location in Africa. Blogs everywhere are griping over the visual details and the location. Basically Saying, mowing down black people in some African village is just... Wrong. They even go as far as stating some of the non infected blacks in the trailer look already demonic and possessed.
Why heres my take on it.
No.. It is not totally racist, Its not the blackface goes HD Some people claim it is.
Is it a bit Politically Incorrect? Eh.. maybe.. But the Japanese are one race, and arent a multicultural nation like the US. Maybe they aren't as receptive to the sensitivities of stereotypes?
WHO CARES!?! RES 5 is gonna rock!
My only problem is.. why Bitch now? if you are black and loved resident Evil games up until this one..
then shut up, you should consider yourself more racist than the Japanese. You see any bitching from us Latinos while you had a blast blowing up Spanish Zombies in part four? Talk about stereotypes, every Zombie in that game Dressed like Juan Valdez, and yelled " Yo Quiero matarle" like some announcer from the 'Super Sabado' Spanish Channel. If you think that our stereotypes are any less important than yours, that makes you bias . Flat Out.
I only wish they kept the stereotypes consistent. When it comes to Japanese people , they always present themselves as the heroes in these games. Chris Redfield and Leon are 6ft Tall, blond, with Asian eyes, and lean bodies.. Ya.... Come on.. Consistency People... Well... Then again how scary would it be if Rez Evil 6 was located in Japan? 4 foot tall zombies probably wouldn't be very threatening, ha.
I say as long as the games are fun, and are not presenting a message of hate. Leave it alone.
It worked for Grand Theft Auto.
Besides,I hear Rez Evil 7 will be located in Ireland! I can't wait to shoot Zombies in Kilts, river dancing into my 12 gauge >:p
Lol Zombies are broke.
