Left 4 Dead 2 should not have been set in New Orleans

So apparently there is some mini organisation out there trying to get famous by claiming that Left 4 Dead 2 is racist because it has black people in it and some of those black people are zombies.

Now I still feel that there were some racist undertones in Resident Evil, even though I feel they were based more on ignorance than ill feeling, however that being said I cannot for the life of me see how Left 4 Dead 2 could possibly be racist. Some of the lead characters who save the world are black, doesn't that make them the hero's?

There is however something I feel Valve did wrong, they set the game in New Orleans. The city that recently was struck by Hurricane Katrina which killed nearly 2000 people and turned the city into a death trap. Setting your video game (which includes death, zombies and disease) in this setting is uncaring and a cheap ploy to try and grab some extra attention.

Until you can spell "organization" correctly, I don't think you should be choosing the setting.

Only in America do you replace the correct [s] in the word with a [z].

Organisation is who it's means to be spelled everywhere else and seeing as we are not an American website it would make sense that we didn't use the [z] spelling ;)
