Oh I know you didn't mean to be racist, since a real racist probably would've put down something really hurt for, than "Do I have to play as a black guy?". My apologize, if I sounded like an ass to you, john_freeman69.

But if we got to play as Rick or the other survivors in his group, then it's probably has to be like an "Alternate universe" or else watching the TV series or playing this game would be kinda pointless. In my opinion, anyway.

Aint no thang, mang.

However, the comics and the show exist with different things going on, with events happening at different times and characters dying sooner or later than they did in the other universe, so I would assume this would do the same thing.

from the way the posts are going, that would mean he was calling you stupid because of you asking if you HAD to play as the black guy, the question SOUNDS a tad racist and there are alot of people who think racists are flat out wrong and stupid, which itself is stupid
for people that say they are tolerant they dont show it =3

Oh, I didn't mean to be racist, I thought I would be playing as someone from the show/comic.

The game is based on the comics rather then the show.

Rick and glen are from the comics.


T-Dog and Tyreese are black. Each of them is either on the show or comic.

To be fair, a real racist probably wouldn't want to play as Glenn if they weren't Asian, and if it were an Asian racist, they wouldn't want to play as Rick, and especially not Daryl.
