Remember the 2015 Fantastic Four movie where they've made the Human Torch to be black for social inclusion? What if they did the same with Ken Masters? Would that make the black community to feel more included?
They're constantly doing that in Hollywood. The character Larry Underwood from the Mini series "The Stand" from 1994 will be turned into a black guy in the 2020 remake for more social inclusion.
The Little Mermaid Ariel will be turned from a red head girl into a black girl for social inclusion.
That's happening right now in America but Street Fighter is a Japanese game. I wonder if they'll follow the trend.

Most black people don't like all this race swapping. It's just a hand me down at that point.

Then the game would flop like that movie.

Speaking for other people is always smart.

I wouldn't care in the slightest.
As a black man I wouldn't be cool with it...Still pissed that Capcom made him more Japanese than Caucasian. They done retconned his genes all up to the point he dyed his hair and wear contacts.
Warning: I have a different views about stuff so try not to get worked up. OK?

As a Black male I would go WTF Capcom, just stop. I have zero problem with Ken's race, just his frame advantage (jk jk). SF is a huge universe so they could easily flesh out or create another character if they wanted. Making a character Black that was formerly half Japanese half White for no reason would just be silly. They need to focus all of their energy on the netcode as this point anyway because BRUH...
