It's the imagery as it related to American depictions of blackness. Apparently there's a scene where a gang of black men attack a white woman? In any context, that image is going to be charged with racial overtones.
And yet there are more games where the white man attacks people with a darker skin colour...
No furor/protests about those...
I can't think of any off hand... but the games I play either involve aliens or Nazis.
Well, there are plenty of FPS games taking place in Korea or Vietnam where you shoot the local populace...
Far Cry 2 takes place in Africa, so i guess the player kills black people in it as well...
And the last couple of years there have been games where you kill middle-eastern/Arab people...
"But they are terrorists!", yeah, and the black people in this game are zombies and they all attack the player...
