CrunchArcade: Revisiting the idea that Resident Evil 5 is racist

How lucky we are to be alive in 2008, friends! Our lives are so comfortable that we can LOOK FOR RACISM in Resident Evil 5.

Look, read this and form your own opinion. Newsweek’s N’Gai Croal lambasts the upcoming Capcom game for racist undertones. Or is it overtones, since the game is so damn racist and all?

“Croal’s first reaction to the trailer was, ‘Wow, clearly no one black worked on this game’.”

No joke, I actually felt myself getting hot reading Croal’s opinion. I simply cannot stand people injecting race into every little thing. So for the benefit of everyone, I’ll keep my opinion to myself. I think it’s safe to say, generally, I disagree with Croal.
