Characters within entertainment are generally a means of identification and more creatively, personas that enhance one's experience on various social fronts. Social–in this case racial–awareness in the game industry hasn't quite reached the level of say, the movie industry, and that is understandable, seeing how it is a younger business in comparison.
My concern is this: black characters in games habitually range from stereotypical to non-existent. In addition, black gamers consume a great deal of the medium and are a vastly growing and contributing demographic in the community. Why not create and implement characters that are actually relatable or who boast innovative societal behaviors?"
