That's Haiti in Your Resident Evil 5

Remember that Resident Evil 5-is-racist brouhaha? The E3 trailer showed large numbers of black zombies getting killed, which set off a firestorm of controversy. Killing black zombies? Masked racism, critics say. According to Kotaku well-placed insider, there is a reason for that: Resident Evil 5 takes place in Haiti, zombism's spiritual home. Speculation was that it took place in either Africa or Carribean. And yes, according to Kotaku insider, the setting is apparently Haiti. Makes sense!

.. Bladestar thought i was being rascist or sumthing =(

dantesparda3407d ago

That's cuz Bladestar is an idiot! I could tell that it was either Haiti or Africa myself, its just to obvious. And especially Haiti because of the Voodoism

BIadestarX3407d ago

Actually you said it was domincan republic... so don't change it. Why would I think you are a rasist if you say it was haiti? I am not from haiti.. so why would I give a crap? The thing is that you people are so stupid to tell the difference between Haiti and domican republic.

eXplotion3406d ago

and I love my country it is nothin like haiti FTW

MADGameR3406d ago

I've never been do Dominican Republic. All I know is that they have all kinds of skin colored people. Super white, white, tan, yellow, dark, etc. Same goes with Puerto Rico.

I never thought the game was racist. Now if he was dressed in a Klan outfit that'd be different. Glad to see Capcom isn't afraid to reach out with RE5 rather than give us more of the same. Perhaps the next one can take place in Tokyo.

I remember reading it was about Haitians in OPSM and I thought that made sense. Just because this has said does that mean people wont call it rascist though?

I was just reading about Haiti today and how there are legends of strong and Powerful undead monsters that resemble zombies. There is also a mixture that can turn someone into a zombielike creature. You rub a powder on someone skin and they then are knocked out for an extended period of time. Voodoo doctors did this to adulterers in the past then they would bury you in a coffin for a couple of hours and dig them up and they would walk in the zombified state. These mixtures also caused brain damage which sometimes made their face and arms lag as if they had a stroke. I think this mixture was made of pufing fish and an inside part in a Poisonous frog. I learned all this in my biology class.
