Is 'Resident Evil 5' Trailer Racist?


Posted August 1, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

Like Steven Colbert, TheFeed doesn't see color. We've been told some of our best friends are of different races. We wouldn't know, as we don't see color. Seriously. We're color-blind. It's a medical condition as opposed to a political gambit.

But activist/media analyst/blogger Kym Platt is seeing red over the trailer to Resident Evil 5. According to Platt (and others on the web) the trailer shown at this year's E3 is "problematic on so many levels." The vid, according to Platt, depicts black people as "inhuman savages, the killing of Black people by a white man in military clothing, and the fact that this video game is marketed to children and young adults. Start them young… fearing, hating, and destroying Black people."

But check it out yourself and decide whether you think it's racist, harmless, or somewhere in the middle.
