The only reason the aliens were all black and made to look like a stereotypical African tribe was because the director was a racist. The damn episode is full of references to just about every pre-modern Earth culture but African culture.
True, but again the clothing and music made it pretty clear what we were looking at.

I don't think that he was denying that, he was stating that it wasn't the writers as you had stated before, but the director that added the aspect of these aliens being a stereotypical African tribe.
