Resident Evil 5 No Longer Racist?

I was playing the RE5 demo today and I noticed that all the enemies aren't Africans.  I noticed Hispanics, Whites, and Chinese (or Japanese) people.  I wonder if they did it because of all the bad rep they were getting about being racist in this game.  Either way the game still rocks in my opinion.

F**k me.... For starters the game was never racist in the first place!, secondly, Africa has people of many colours and creeds, not everyone is fucking black!. The continent has been influenced on a racial level for hundreds if not thousands of years.

Sigh, I love how because it's set in Africa and your a white guy shooting Africans it's considered rasict, but no one complained when a white guy is shooting Spanish people in Europe in Re4, and no one ever complains when your shooting chinese or japanese people in War games.

Maybe if Chris was a black guy shooting white dudes in England it would be okay, I dunno maybe I'm ignorant and just don't understand it.

Of course it would be OK. Black people never have racist intention. I guess this thread's going to get locked soon.
