I don't even care about what color he is
I just care about two things in the whole game.
1.) Surviving.
2.) Killing Walkers.

I think the writing is really well done and he's not just a one-dimensional character; he could have been anyone, even his gender hardly matters, at least so far. They did a good job of making him a relevant and interesting character while simultaneously making him a blank slate that let's the gamer project their personality onto him at the same time.

Didn't even think about it until people kept mentioning it. He's just a guy.
There is one key difference between truth and fiction...
Fiction has to make sense.

Well, he was a criminal on his way to prison of course he's a black guy.

jp, I didn't even give his skin color a second thought.

As long as he's not a cliche abomination like Cole Train "Wooo wooo, all aboard for some blackface and purple drank!" then I could care less.

The MC in this is from my culture. That's the only thing that keeps me in the moment.

If he was a hood rat or genteel 15th century noble, I couldn't relate and wouldn't want to play him.

Whoa dere, the Cole Train is da man. He's one of the more popular characters in GOW BABY!

Basically like this. Lee's a great character (well, I made him very likeable in my first playthrough.) Race shouldn't matter at all to anyone, especially in a fictional game.
Cause there's a thin line between genius and insane, Guess which one I am
