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

Call of Duty games are next. They ALL GERMAN.

GiantEnemyCrab2958d ago (Edited 2958d ago )

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.

Trollimite2958d ago

that people get payed and have careers based off of finding racsist stuff.

im black and i dont see anything wrong with it!

the point is that no one who acctually plays video games cares.

G3TDOWN2958d ago

in every single game you kill white people more than anything else, now we add some blacks and its racist ? STFU

I'm totally digging the "Ina" Fried photo.

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.

heroicjanitor2958d ago

I played it a lot and I was shooting zombies. I wasn't shooting black and white zombies, I was shooting zombies. Like most people here.

sack_boi2958d ago (Edited 2958d ago )

You need to STFU. You don't have a slight clue of what you're talking about, so let the adults do the talking while you sit back and watch.

Sarcasm2958d ago

The PS3 is racist because it's black and has sold less than the "White" consoles.


Sarcasm2958d ago

Black, White, Asian, Red, Green.

I don't care what race you are. To me, people are people. I've met "bad" people from all different races ranging from asian, white, hispanic, black, arabic etc. etc. and in contrast I've met good hard working folks from all races too.

ZombieNinjaPanda2958d ago

Bubbles sarcasm for saying how it truely is.

Then again, this man is giving others a bad name too.

deadpoole2958d ago

For god sake these people need to get the life. If they dont find anything else to bash they come up with this idiotic topic.

I would love to kick zombie ass anytime of the day and I wont give a ratsass about if that zombie is black/white/purple/blue whatever ... anyone who is after my character's neck & blood, 12gaugepumpgun is gonna create a hole in zombie's head.

Atleast Zombies dont give a heck about color or race, they work all together.

STEVIE_2958d ago

That's racism, in its purest form.

heroicjanitor2958d ago

That's because the black zombies could be nice people, but we won't give them a chance, and every nazi was a horrible excuse for a human /sarcasm

LastDance2958d ago

Oh yeah...coz the alternative to Obama was aces!..

"You see....Arab nations like to be dominated by to be policed by countries like us"

And that idiot chick who loves guns!

America definately dodged that bullet.

Chubear2958d ago (Edited 2958d ago )

When has ANYONE last heard of anyone talking about black Zombies in L4D? This guy just made up some BS story for hits on their site and you all fall hook 'n sink 'er.


It's unbelievable how these gaming sites just toy with the community. Now you have all these closet racists fricking out like someone spit on their mother. The gaming community really needs to check it's self.

topdawg1222958d ago

Dude that sh!t is ridiculous, this dude just gives blacks a bad name by comin up with this bullsh!t. Come on bro relax

likedamaster2958d ago

Resident Evil 5 all over again.

theEnemy2958d ago

are the ones who are racists.

It's like they are finding ways just to bring Racism up.

fcking hypocrites.

Nihilism2958d ago

does the fact that i'm white mean that i myself am a racist symbol against black people....because i'm not black.....that will be the logic next.....god damn i hate people....who makes up this stuff, i suppose the necromorphs in dead space are making fun of physically disabled people too *pulls hair out*

Rainstorm812958d ago (Edited 2958d ago )

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

MorganX2957d ago

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.

MorganX2957d ago (Edited 2957d ago )

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.

Chrisny852957d ago

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

matter of fact all people in the game should be white cause the "good guys" have guns! and people will think all black people have guns.

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

JasonXE2957d ago

"Do you also get offended when you see a box of Count Chocula?"

haha the amount of epic comments on his blog.

Projekt7tuning2957d ago

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.

Gamertags2957d ago

because there are so many white people in them. Get real!

Ramtough2957d ago (Edited 2957d ago )

So lets just clear the air right now. I'm RACIST against zombies with in-tact craniums. All those nasty buggers deserve to have their WHOLE head blown right off.

This article is crap and the writer should go to a corner and beat himself with two socks full of coins.

indysurfn2957d ago

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.

Whats up with black people always wanting to shoot white people?

G3TDOWN2958d ago (Edited 2958d ago )

OMG !!! POLICE BRUTALITY but when Black gangs kill cops, who cares ?

Maybe 10 blacks die because of brutlity
but at least +100 cops die because of blacks

I'm not being racist but look at U.S gangs, at least, more than half of them are blacks

LeSouteneur2958d ago

As well as black on white hate crimes. Black-on-white hate crimes is actually higher the other way around and rarely on the news.
