Left 4 Dead 2 is racist because 'several' zombies are black

This is unbelievable. I've seen people try and find racist undertones in harmless entertainment before, but The Houston Chronicle's Willie Jefferson takes home the prize for making the most ridiculous and convoluted racism link in history. According to him, Left 4 Dead 2 is "disturbing" because "several" of the zombies are African-American. Yep, that's right -- you can't even have ONE black zombie without somebody crying racism (Left 4 Dead 2, PC, Xbox 360)

Yes, but they are all white so it's okay to shoot white people and have white zombies.

The people living their lives by color are the same people always complaining about racism.

This is what liberals have done to our country. Think a black person should get a job over a white person just because of skin color? Support gays? Voted for Obama? Believe in feminism? You are part of the problem. In fact, this jack ass probably got his job as a journalist because of these outrageous liberal policies and outcries.

Kratos is black and is covered in white Ash and is called the ghost of sparta. Thats more racist on more levels (there weren't any black spartans)

GTA san andreas had heavy racial overtones with black on black gang killing & N bombs every where. But wasnt accused of being racist.

As a black man im glad to see more video game roles for black people. even if we are zombies. shooting black zombies is no different from shooting nazi zombies.

BTW RE5 took place iin africa (populated by black people) L4D2 takes place in new orleans (populated by alot of black people) dont be dumb

zombies apppearing in a black area = black zombies

Why did this story get approved? There's plenty of real racism and discrimination in the whole world. It's nothing new. Stories like this are just, damaging.

Unfortunately, when you live in a society in which there is real racism, and a history of it, idiots like this journalist can get their 15 minutes, by writing an idiotic piece like this. It's just not even worth it.

I don't know that there weren't "any" black Spartans. Nubians got around back then. You have to remember, black/white racism is an American creation as we know it today. Take Egypt, they had no concept of black/white. There was just Egyptian, and others. There were black, white, and in-between Pharohs.

The black/white thing was created to justify American Slavery.

so i suppose the guy who cried racism would like for ALL the zombies to be white?

then its racist bc it doesn't have black people in it.. jeez there is no winner.

I hate too say it but its these type of people who keep racism going. Anytime someone like Jesse Jackson starts a new crusade it actual makes it worse. He jumped on Imus but were was he when Jamie Foxx made an ass out of himself on BET. oh yah no ware, because for some reason if your black you cant be racist. What foxx said was worse than Imus. If you look at young children who have no idea what racism is, they play and have the best time with each other no matter what the race. you see it all the time in young kids on play grounds all across the US. Then in school they are taught just how bad white people are and all the horrible thing that happened in the past. Thats when the first divide really starts. I have seen it with my own eyes. I'm not saying stop teaching history, but present it in a new way so the white kids are not ashamed to be white and the young black kids don't resent the very same kids that were there best friends on the play ground just a short time before. Well theres a lot more to it, but I feel you cannot be equal when you force everyone to know theres a distinction between white and black. You also cannot be equal by asking for special rights, that automatically make you separate and unequal by trying to be special. It brings out resentment. Well these are just my thoughts and I'm proud to live in a country were i'm free to express my opinion.

What does this have to do with legitimate racism?? Sounds like a person that has had his feelings hurt because they don't want to HEAT IR. RACISM. That would be like me mocking rape. No one has said racism because one person was black or green. But because it is targeted towards a race. This sounds like the 70's people don't like to hear something so they pick a extreme example get sarcastic about it and try to paint it as the rule rather than the exception. So that people will see there so called point.

Of course, I'm not implying that just because someone is black, that they will automatically commit crimes. However, I'm implying that this whole "OMG black enemies... RACIST!" fiasco is completely ridiculous. If the person wants to look at the racial aspects of enemies in games, then look at the racial aspects of crime; that's when these "race card" crybabies tend to shut up and be more PC.
mindedone  +   2241d ago
You are spreading misinformation with your first comment about hate crimes. Nowhere in that statistic does it say whether those crimes were hate crimes. Hate crimes are a specific type of crime, and you only further your own and other people's ignorance.
MorganX  +   2240d ago
Hmmm, if your'e going to try to be educated about it, you'll have to look at the socioeconomic statistics of crime and ask why blacks are disproportionately in the economic groups that commit crime. It is an endless cycle with no point other than personal responsibility.

The fact is black people have more to fear from black criminals than anyone else. The average gun owner, who kills cops, is a 30-year old white guy with issues.

It's like the bible, you can spin it to support whatever you want to believe. Even American Nazis convince themselves the bible supports their insanity.

It amazes me how everyone is so consumed by obsession and fear of blacks when there's roughly what, one for every 9 or so whites. And the overwhelming majority are in innner cities and poor southern states. There's even more Mexicans than blacks in America now.

A video game site simply isn't the place for this type of discussion, or maybe it is, who knows. The only real conclusion you can make is that gamers aren't necessarily the smartest cookies in the jar.

Let me explain to people what racism is.
In todays world racism is basicaly hatred towards black people...yeah you read that right. Ask any black person and they will tell you the same. They honestly belive that and will find anything to scream racism.

If you are white it's ok...you can be discriminated against, pushed down from your possition, taken out from a line, fired from a job and there isn't a damn thing you can do about it. You can't say racism because you are white. But if you are black you can say that this happend because you are black and sew them.

See how screwed up it works????

Also, if there is a comertial, God forbid there are only white people in it. Right away it will be labled as racist. But if you have an all black comercial...than that's ok.

When white guys dress up like rappers (talking XXXXXXL clothing and bandana) black people scream that whites wanna steal their culture...but when black people dress up as rockers it's perfectly fine. Or when black people dress up like these "techo" guys (Armani, D&C, Diesel clothes) that's ok too.

So in todays world...if something positive doesn't have a black guy in it it's racist...and if something "negative" has a black guy in it it's racist too.

But hell...it's all ok to shoot white guys, white zombies right??? I mean...that's not racist at all.

As a black man who lives in london i have PERSONALLY seen racism between all cultures ( muslims vs sikhs vs christians..black/white /asian you name it ..ill can tell you some stories...) im talking about spilt blood here not some damn game videogame.real talk.

the fact that you think ALL black people think like that tells me you either dont know any black folks or you havent seen much of the world. matter of fact if you think racism still dont exist then i doubt you`ve seen much of ANYTHING to be honest. I think your commnet is naive.

there are just as many hip hop artists that wear clothes that fit (kanye,pharrel williams etc.) as there is the cookie cut mtv depiction of xxxl clothing and exceess jewellry...again..your naive.

i live in the UK where 98% of terrestrial tv (yes, that includes the adverts) is White . we never complain to the bbc/itv/channel 4 about it cause it aint important and further more there is no grounds for racism.

there is prejudice throughout the world dude.fact. if you dont see it then i suggest you go to a part of the world where YOU are a minority.

"There are many cool black guys as well but the majority is just nuts with this racism crap"
Is it actually that bad in New York!? Where I live(Ireland)if a black guy calls racism he is told to fucc off unless it is proper racism, like discrimination or hate crimes. You can't call racism just because you want to get ahead of white people.

However I think there is a growing problem with other types of racism, as in foreign people. Ever since the recession people seem upset that foreigners are working in a lot of places while there is 12% unemployment, and expected to rise to 18%(It used to be around 3% and we were one of the top three richest countries in the world per capita). People hate travellers too, but I don't think that's racist if they are likely to actually stab you :)

There is truth in your statement but....
there is no reason to generalize. There's a lot of cool black guys I know. They hate it when people call attention to stuff that isn't racist by playing the race card. It makes people think that racism doesn't exist and that it must just be people overreacting. Racism still happens. It's just not as bad as some people would have you believe.

And one more thing. There is a double standard on racist comments. That's my biggest problem when the racist card is played like this. There's never a German complaint about CoD or games like that. White guys don't get offended nearly as badly as most and that goes double for most southerners. (who laugh at their stereotypes more than anyone I know)

If the majority of blacks and other races in American thought the way you thought, Thoreau, then things would be dandy. I live and grew up in the slums of New York City surrounded by both blacks and hispanics (i.e. the ghetto). The way YOU'RE perceiving the culture of blacks is respectful, and I agree 100% with you on that. But to try to argue that blacks overall see it the same way is pretty much being as naive as you're calling NMC.

People are judged and treated by the way they portray themselves. Period. It's fact. It's BS and unfair, but that's the way the world works. If the majority of rappers, and yes the MAJORITY (you can't count Kanye and Pharrel as the majority), talk about shooting people, f'ing women and calling the hoes, and wear clothing 10x their size, they will be perceived as idiots. And being that the greater majority of rappers are blacks, it instills a train of thought to certain folk that they are nothing short of how they present themselves. It's ignorant, yes. But it's real.

I know, but black people can be very embarrassing here in Los Angeles, when I am out with my black friends and we see other black people acting really ghetto or messed up, we get embarrassed man and in that moment I would wish I weren't black sometimes, I know it's not just black people who do this but I can tell you that they are the worst with it, but I won't go into specifics with it though.

Sorry guys. :(

Edit: When I say ghetto I mean causing a scene ghetto, I don't mind the "ghetto" but when you are causing a scene and you feel people are looking at you with less than favorable feelings, you can't help but feel a bit weird about it, but I have no problem with ghetto, just when it's not so appropriate, like in a restaurant or movie theater, ya know?

We as a people should be concerned about who we are as individuals rather than how we're perceived by others.

@TheRealness: I wouldn't call him the lowest kind of human being. That's pushing it. I just think he's in the wrong state of mind.

Dont get your panties in a bunch...
There's nothing wrong with what NMC said. There's things white people do that make me embarrassed and not want to be white to avoid the stigma. If your too proud to admit the embarrassment that some people cause to certain ethnic or racial groups then that's a you problem. Don't take his comments personal. It's his way of saying it's embarrassing and that is perfectly understandable.

@The Realness
So..... I am the lowest kind of human being because I hate the way my race acts? Is that right? So I should be proud of black people and their ways? Really? So what you are saying is, that I should be proud of being black because i'm black? Even though I don't like the way my race acts? No thanks.

Also, the word sell-out, how am I a sell out? Because I am not ghetto? Because I like to speak english instead of slang or ghetto code? Because I am not loud or obnoxious? Because I am not angry all the damn time or cop an attitude at someone for almost nothing? Am I a sell out because I don't like the things my race does and choose to act differently? I thought I was being my own person, not selling out.

Anyway, whatever man, you can think whatever you want about me but I will choose to live the way I like, not the way others feel I am supposed to and if I don't like how my race acts then I don't, it's not my fault, I hate rap music and R&B and love Metal & Rock, there, go on a rampage about that, lol.

Black Ban
Watch...in about 2 years, video game developers will be banned from including ANY black people in their video games. That means that Drebbin from MGS4 won't be in MGS5.

Dude, you guys. It's Destructoid. It's a satirical article. Y'know, you're suppose to laugh. Like "HA-HA-HA-HA". As gay as Tidus even. But dammit people, laugh!
ZombieNinjaPanda  +   2241d ago
no, it wasn't a laughing article

He was calling out the dude as a complete moron for even making those statements.
FantasyStar  +   2241d ago
I guess I read it differently. Ah well. I never took Destructoid seriously even once. But others have different ways of interpreting stuff I suppose.

No the game is not racist, that's just silly.

Now for most the people who decided to "rant" about this subject seem pretty ignorant about how the world really is.

Oh please I didnt' hear anyone complain about racism until this guy said it. If this even becomes an issue don't blame black people AGAIN like you did with re5. The ones who blow this up will be the ones who continuously report this.

Please don't let it be like RE5 again...

Black folks in Houston need to go slap that guy upside the head and tell him to stfu. Now if the Zombies look stereotypically racist then that's a whole other story. But the simple fact that there are black zombies in the game? I'll quote Chris Rock and say: "Stop bein ignit!"

Value not allow L4D2 on PS3, because PS3 is black.

Value not allowed on PS3?
topdawg122  +   2241d ago
Haha thats a good one, but seriously people need to get a reality check and realize that not everything is racist. Grow up people!
mcgrawgamer  +   2241d ago
wow black zombies in predominatly black cities. I understand the struggle blacks went thru and being a black man in the south even to this day I've been a victim of racisim and racial sterotyping in my lifetime; but stuff like this makes me sick to my stomach. We can't change what happened in the past. We shouldn't forget it but man we sure as hell shouldn't harp on it every single day of our lives....
