Is Resident Evil 5 Ethnically Offensive | PS3Blog.net
On one hand, I seriously doubt that the creators have even a shred of racist intention. Was Resident Evil 4 offensive to Spanish people? Of course not. The possessed non-zombies in this game just happen to be black for this title.
On the other hand, seeing the all-black demonic creatures was visually shocking. Almost everyone who saw the trailer commented on the unusual use of ethnicity.
