Chris Redfield Hates Black People

Chris Redfield Hates Black People
Published by gamexxover on Wednesday, August 01, 2007

Remember the --George Bush Hates Black People comment a while back? Well looks like the finger pointers have a new guy to kick around. As if video games did not have enough haters and opportunists using it to further their own careers and Ideals, Well here comes another. Apparently our hero in Resident Evil 5 "Chris Redfield" is a racist, and the game is teaching young children that black people are evil savages and that white people need to dispose of them.

Well according to one web site anyway called Black Looks. I had seen this coming folks, as soon as I saw the trailer for the game, and here it begins, Surely the ACLU and Al Sharpton will be up in arms soon. Apparently the blood, gore and violence is not a problem, the problem is that the infected (some call them zombies) are all black (do to the setting in Africa) and the guy fending them off is white.



The author claims " This is problematic on so many levels, including the depiction of Black people as inhuman savages, the killing of Black people by a white man in military clothing, and the fact that this video game is marketed to children and young adults. Start them young… fearing, hating, and destroying Black people." Check out the BLACK LOOKS site to see for yourself..

Take a look at the offending video your self HERE.

Little update, Richard Windsor over at http://www.aeropause.com, voiced his thoughts, on this moronic blog posting.

Not only is her argument baseless and without intelligent merit, it is obvious she did not even bother doing any research whatsoever. So here are 5 reasons why her arguments are dead wrong.

5. Japanese Developed
She obviously feels the game is an intentional racist product, but last time I checked RE5 was being developed by a Japanese game company. Do the Japanese have a secret hatred for black people? The answer is no!

4. So Killing White Zombies is OK
Amongst the comments to her blog post she replied with this statement:
“Yes… I am more comfortable with the zombies being white. In fact, ALL zombies should be white from this day forth.”
This comment just makes my head spin with the amount of stupidity in every word. I really can’t think of what else to say about this comment.

3. Zombies Aren't Civilized
I think that the author needs to watch a zombie movie or two to realize that they are not tame or kind creatures. Zombies don’t politely ask to eat your brains; they just chomp down on your skull like it was a big hairy apple. Luckily zombies are not real, or are they? Should the developers make them nice zombies just because they are black? The answer is no, zombies no matter what color are zombies, and any person who is smart enough to pass sixth grade can tell that. It is not racism it’s called variety.

2. Location, Location, Location
This being RE’s first go round with next gen hardware I imagine the developers wanted to go to a location that looked as gritty and earthy as possible. Africa is a perfect setting because it is a beautiful area that allows for many cool plot points. The game just would not seem right if the zombies in Africa were white. Africa is a great location for a game and just so happens to be populated heavily by Africans…imagine that!This being RE’s first go round with next gen hardware I imagine the developers wanted to go to a location that looked as gritty and earthy as possible.

1. White Zombies Have Been Done to Death
Ever since we first got a taste of Resident Evil every mindless slow walking zombie we have come across has been white, in skin color at least. Black people get killed in movies all the time yet I have not heard of protests about it. Would we be seeing an uproar if the zombies were all women or would PETA be upset if there was nothing but dog and cat zombies. The United States has a lot of work yet to do when it comes to race relations, but we have come quite a long way so far. A video game about zombies should be the last thing we worry about as a culture. Maybe we should pay more attention to huge number of kids caught up in skinhead groups or the reorganization of the KKK that is happening in America, but no we are sitting here talking about a video game…and that makes me kind of sad.
