Ripten.com asks critics to look past the accusations of racism and focus on the real issue at hand...
glad you guys like the article.
CAPCOM crossed the line...and must NEVER cross it again.
Just recently we saw how IMUS in the morning crossed the line and just referred to black women as NAPPY,HEADED, WHORES. Only until companies get the message in their bank accounts will they acquire common sense.
Some corporations just NEVER learn or seem to get the point! Using races for profits and winning awards at the E3 2007 convention for Resident Evil 5 proves that some individuals care nothing about race, its impact on the black community or the outcome of their actions.
CapCom has refused to respond to inquiries regarding Resident Evil 5 (BIOHAZARD 5) so far. In time their legal department will have to respond.
I am in the process of contacting the offices of ALL Democratic and Republic canditates for office in 2008 and sending links of comments made on every message board and podcast.
I am also working on sending correspondence to the White House in Washington along with the video from Gametrailers & others even showing the awards already recieved by voting from individuals in the gaming press. The desdain that people that are game writers from several corporations also seem to lack the sensitivity to this game.
I am willing to bet that 95% of the press giving this game the E3 award are WHITE!
Microsoft and Sony will also be getting letters about this game as well.
In addition, correspondence will be sent to AMAZON, BestBuy, Circuity City, WalMart and Target. Other companies down the line will also be notified.
My local Congressman as well as the NAACP will be notified shortly regarding this. the National Action Network will be getting these correspondence as well.
As a black man I will do my part to make sure that Resident Evil 5 does NOT sell a single copy worldwide.
If Capcom and its partners want to defend this game I thank you for your stupidity.
This sh1t is starting to get seriously out of hand...Lol
Funny, good shyt.
Stupid a@@ people.
I love the internet! there are so many awesome characters standing up for common sense :D
Resident evil's been out for what? 10-11 years? AND NOW they come up with this..
sigh..what has the world come to.
Funny!! Good way to satirize (and hopefully tone down) an already heated and touchy subject. But seriously though, enough with this "Capcom working under and for Goebbels" crap because the two related articles in this site already got a whole lot of people's blood boiling.
always blacks or middle east people who start this sh*t!
And the KKK are different in complaining about sh*t?.
I don't think its blacks and middle eastern people looking for this type of news to post it on a game site.
Idiot people can find this type of sh*t about any subject with every type of people crying about something.
This is why people worked so hard to ban the first post about this its the white people actually posting this sh*t as news on a game site(some even looking for this sh*t to post it lol, based on the first post's title that sparked the trend of the anti Resi 5 post ).
POG - I think you missed the humor in that post above.
it was posted AS Don Imus saying
"always blacks or middle east people who start this sh*t!"
It was more of an imus joke than a real comment.
next DOA girls are going to protest about their inhumane treatment.
I hate dead people they stink!, and they're rude they act like they're too good to talk to you.
I f-ing knew it!!!
Why would Capcom hate Dead people? Capcom worked SIDE-BY-SIDE with HUNDREDS of dead actors to bring us the beloved Dead Rising, Resident Evil Series, and Mega-man (he died awhile back). How can you even say they don't love dead people?
The whole hating black people thing...it's publicity. Capcom can afford it...and if it's too much, I'm sure MICROSOFT will help them out, right? Or will they turn their backs on a company that SAVED the Gamecube and helped the 360's first year out more than anyone!!???
Cracking satire, good on em
As a dead black person I am Offended. Us Zombies deserve equal treatment.
so its ok for people to play as CJ a black man killing white people in san andreas but a white man cant kill black peope WHO ARE NOT EVEN HUMAN ANYMORE
We've got a next Jack Thompson.
Just as moronic, idiotic, and useless. Sad.
my name says it all! now days if your not black or middle eastern your going to get the race card thrown at you like i posted above. so you can disagree like you retards always do but it changes nothing and you will still hear this sh*t every time some towel head or nappy head ho gets wind of it.
That was a good post cuz once I read about the lady saying RE5 was racist I rolled my eyes. Seriously these people are not human nor are they(capcom) focusing on black people. Everyone loves to play the race card so fast these days it's not even a question of if they'll use it but more of when.
I always think back when Bonds got suspended because of the corked bat. What did his fellow black friends say of the suspension? They said it was because he was black! Not because he violated rules and regulations of a sport no that had nothing to do with him cheating it had everything to do with him being black...
Now granted racism is still here and now. It's still a big problem but not everything is racist! Specially about a town that is no longer living. No one ever had any problems with any of the other RE titles that span for a good long time but suddenly we have a new one that has a town full of black dead people instead of white dead people.
