I`m "black" more brown actually. LOL.

Anyone trippin about this sh!t, needs to grow the f**k up.

If africans made a game about some african going to europe and killing europeans you feel that no one would find anything wrong with it? No one would accuse the game of "reverse racism"? Really now? I'm pretty sure you'd see a million posts saying "oh if we did this we'd be racist". And people did have a problem with san andreas, just not black people. I know I'll get massive disagrees, but that's the truth. Do I think the game is racist? Of course not. Do I think capcom had any bad intentions? Of course not. Does the game bother me? Of course not. Does it bother me that the only racism that seems to be okay to criticize is al sharpton and jesse jackson's? Yes.
