Resident Evil 5 is Racist – Boycott




Apparently so. Black gamers all around the world are upset that the next installment of the hit series of Zombie Killers, Resident Evil 5 takes place in Africa, killing well, black Zombies of cource.

Sup dog?

Sup dog?

Yes. Japanese game developers seem to care less and are continuing to develop the game and no release dates have been altered. Over the years Resident Evil and its Zombie Virus has traveled the globe affecting the world and its people, now making its way to the mother land, Mother Africa. Why should Africa be excluded from this horrible outbreak you ask, well the answers are quite simple.

White Zombies are there for the picking, but killing black Zombies are just, well, racist, and if you buy this game, well you better not kill them, or else Al Sharpton will be at your house with an angry mob. And here comes the demand for reparations. Some very reputable Black authors have voiced their opinion about this racist title developed by the Japanese online in various blogs and web sites.

Kim from Black looks says:

The new Resident Evil video game depicts a white man in what appears to be Africa killing Black people. The Black people are supposed to be zombies and the white man’s job is to destroy them and save humanity. “I have a job to do and I’m gonna see it through.”

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.

Black Woman from Ask A black Woman says:

I confess I don’t know much about video games, gamers, etc. I don’t play video games, but I occasionally play solitaire on my gf’s PC. However, given the response from gamers… I think we should all be very afraid. Many of these folks seem like the type who would try to reenact scenes from Resident Evil 5. Can you say Columbine?

Never before have I received more hateful comments by angry gamers who called me everything from a “nigger” to a “black hooker” for agreeing with Ruberg that these images of Black people (Black zombies) are problematic.

A Black Microscopiq Author says:

Rape, murder, satanic voodoo. With bulging eyes, simian super strength, and a room temperature IQ, we’ve been portrayed as savages beyond redemption. So, when we see images like these, it doesn’t just resonate with the long lived zombie genre, it also triggers memories of so many awful stereotypes — and what those stereotypes have been used to justify past and present. Put down the crazed negroes before they take the white women! And so on…

But perhaps the most troubling part is that these scenes seem to be set in Africa; the “dark continent.” With all the positive steps being taken of late to raise awareness of the good things happening in Africa as well as the urgent need in some parts of the continent, we really can’t afford this kind of step back. We need to find ways to humanize Africans, not dehumanize them.

Bad Resident Evil… bad…

Fredrick from YBP says

The images used in the game, already disturbing because it is resident evil, also reflect hateful images that were real and meant to invoke hate towards black people in the not too distant history of america. in addition, the underlying stigma of a white guy going through an african village that is infected by a disease spread through blood contact while shooting his way to victory has the undertones, as well, of insensitivity to images projected in the past.

Racist game…

A bunch of kids from an IRC chan say…

  2. WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YA’LL . RE5 RACIST? IF IT AINT AL SHARPTON ITS SOME DUMB BROAD. IF IT WAS BROOKLYN OR COMPTON WITH A WHITE COP KILLING BLACK PEOPLE I’D BE OFFENDED. ITS TAKEN PLACE IN EUROPE, SPAIN AND NOW AFRICA, WHICH SHINJI MIKAMI (THE CREATOR) SAYS ITS SIGNIFIES AS THE THE BIRTH PLACE OF ALL “HUMAN RACE”, NOT THE WHITEY COP KILLING NIGGAS 38 HOUR GAME. AND AS FAR AS YOUR “DEPICTION OF BLACK PEOPLE AS SAVAGES” WELL SHIT YOU HAVE TO BE IF YOU WANT TO SURVIVE IN AFRICA ITS A SHIT HOLE. YA KNOW HOW I KNOW BECAUSE MY BROTHER-IN-LAW IS FROM AFRICA, AS WELL AS MY AUNT LIVING THERE FOR TWO YEARS. OH YEAH, BY THE WAY CHRIS REDFIELD (THE MAIN CHARACTER) PARTNER IS BLACK, THE SPEC OPS TEAM IS BLACK WITH THE EXCEPTION OF A BRITISH GUY AND A WHITE GUY. ALOT OF MY NIGGAS BOUGHT THE GAME AND THEY DONT THINK ITS RACIST. APPARENTLY YOU HAVE TO MUCH SHIT TO DO IF YOUR CALLING VIDEO GAMES RACIST. NOW AS FAR AS THEM MARKETING THE GAME TO YOUNGER KIDS ITS’ IMPOSSIBLE BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN I.D. SAYING YOUR OVER THE AGE OF 17 OR A PARENT TO PURCHASE THE GAME AT (WARNING: PRODUCT PLACEMENT) GAMESTOP AND WAL-MART AND ON TOP OF THAT ITS AN M-RATED GAME SO THERES NOT GOING TO BE ANY COMMERCIALS FOR IT ON THE DISNEY CHANNEL ANY TIME SOON AND IF IT WAS I WOULDN’T PLAY IT CAUSE 10 TIMES OUT OF 10 IF A VIDEO GAME COMMERCIAL IS ON THE DISNEY CHANNEL, ITS GAY AS HELL. AND IF YOU WANT TO BOYCOTT SOMETHING BOYCOTT TYLER PERRYS’ CROSS DRESSING ASS FOR DRESSING UP AS A BIG 200 LB OLD DRAG QUEEN. THE NIGGA AIN’T EVEN FUNNY. THE MORAL OF THIS COMMENT KIDDIES, DO YOUR FUCKIN RESEARCH BEFORE YOU WANNA ACCUSE SOMEONE OR SOMETHING OF BEING RACIST, BITCH. BUT I’VE BEEN PLAYING THE GAME FOR A WEEK KNOW AND THE ONLY THING I FIND OFFENSIVE IS THE DAMN DIFFICULTY LEVEL OF THE GAME. I MEAN GOT DAMN JAPAN WHY THE HELL DO YA’LL MAKE HARD ASS GAMES ANY WAY?
