DISCLAIMER! THIS THREAD IS NOT MEANT TO BE RACIST! THIS WAS SOMETHING ON MY MIND! I DO NOT WANT ANY CONTROVERSY! I AM SIMPLY STATING WHY THERE ISN'T NO BLACK PEOPLE IN AA.

Spoiler:
Okay guys, I had this in my head for a while now, so yeah.
Basically in ALL of the AA games, why wasn't there a black person in ANY of them!?

You could say Marlon Rhimes was black, but he seems a bit brown-ish to me. But hey it is just my opinion.
I mean, some of the characters fit into that category as well, just look at Datz Ar'ebal.
I mean....well...kinda.

As for why this is in the courthouse steps is because I think it would be cool to see a new character in AA, who would be important to the plot/game ETC. Like as a detective, investigative partner, prosecutor.
It depends on how they portray him/her.
As long is it not disrespectful to Black people at least.

If it's a prosecutor: I would like him/her to be similar to the Synth companion from fallout 4 (Sorry I forgot his name) except he is not a total douche, I mean, he might have this attitude Shadmadhi had when you faced him, acting all high and mighty, more intelligent t then you and plays by the books and outsmarts you at every turn.
He is not heartless 'cos he TRULY wants to find the truth.

If it's a detective, I want a more serious version of Fulbright, and he reluctantly works with the defence and wishes to find the truth. A lot like an investigative partner.

As an investigative partner, I want someone similar to Elizabeth from Bioshock infinite. Someone who wants to embrace life to the fullest and likes to stop in the battle ground to smell the flowers.
And it might lead to a new clue to the crime scene.

Well that's my thoughts. What are you'rs?

If I had to hazard a guess I'd say it's probably because the game is actually set in Japan originally and dark skin colours aren't exactly common there to my knowledge.

But still not ONE AA game had at least ONE black person in them.
Doesn't immigrants make it possible to have at least ONE black person.
I know I sound like a social justice warrior....but it just baffle me...well only a little though.....

*shrug* Immigrants sure is a way to do it. Not saying it's impossible just saying that unless they want to make a story about immigration or a culture difference then it would come across quite forced and odd.

I trust they'll get one in there in time and I don't think they are saying anything horrible by not doing it. Though who knows, maybe tweet them or something for better representation in future.

Diego probably counts as Hispanic though at least.

Why couldn't they just be there without it having to be part of the story? Are people of colour living in Japan that unusual, that a character has to be "justified" like that without it being "forced"? (A genuine question because I do not know)
Marlon and Diego are the only ones I can think of as well. And maybe Acro and Jake Marshall? (As for myself I headcanon Daryan as being native american but I probably wouldn't if I'd been playing the original version rather than the localized)

I don't know. I don't know the population demographics of Japan. I just don't think that it's a naturally occurring skin tone in Japan but I'm by no means an expert.

I would argue Lotta is half black, but that's just me. (I'm sorry, but that is NOT a 100% white 'fro.)

I'd be fine with some "obviously" black people in the series, but uh... it just seems to me that whenever Japan means to place an obviously black person in their stories, we usually end up with a stereotype or caricature.

1) I am not expecting a story about immagrants
2) If you want, it would be cool, if he/she was a witness if that's what you want.
3) I don't know how to send off this reply.

So since we're talking about race...anyone else thought that Atishon looked kinda Asian? It makes perfect sense in the localization since he's of Japanese descent, but it can't be intended in the original where everyone is Japanese, so maybe it's just me.

His design seemed to be distinctly about that. I mean he rode around in an old palanquin and his theme has distinct Japanese elements.

I must confess, I don't know too many Scots who drop "yalls" every other sentence and use phrases such as "I'd rather eat the south side of a north bound skunk" and "What in tarnation?"

Precisely that. There are only very small numbers of non-Asian minorities in Japan. Wikipedia says that in 2015, all immigrants (exluding illegal immigrants and short-term visitors) made up only 1.75% of the population in Japan (and yes, a very large portion of that is Asian). Fiction imitates life, and the reality is that Japan does not have a very diverse population.

I thought the same thing when I first saw Lotta I expected her to be black because of the afro but I was wrong. She just seems like she would be African American.

True. And AA in particular has a tendency to create strong stereotyped characters. Take Jean Armstrong as example. Totally obnoxious, unnecessary stereotype of homosexual...

Also, just to play the Devil's advocate:

AA is a Japanese game in a Japanese setting. It is supposed to portray Japanese society's reality, meaning, basically everyone in it is supposed to be "white". Nothing wrong with that, just a cultural thing.

But as people here pointed out, Diego, Acro and some others fall into the "non-white/non-asian" category. Hence, the argument that AA doesn't have black characters because they are a small minority in Japan doesn't make sense anymore. How many Hispanic people live in Japan, again? It didn't stop Capcom from creating Diego, though.

I don't think you have the power to delete this thread even if you want to, though, since you are not a mod.

Diego, or to be more precise, Kaminogi isn't Hispanic though, he's Japanese, just like Acro and other characters. You do know that Japan is a fairly large country and that there are quite a lot of native Japanese who have a fairly tan skin color? Unless explictly states foreign, all the characters are designed Japanese, or at least as 'unmarked' characters. People always tend to look at unmarked characters from their own culture; that's why a stickman is seen in many Western cultures as a 'white' character, and Asian in Asian cultures. In the case of Diego and Acro, it's extremely unlikely people wouldn't see them as Asian/Japanese.

"There are quite a lot of native Japanese who have a fairly tan skin color"? I wasn't aware of that, no, because I have always been exposed to games, movies, manga and other Japanese-based media and right now I can't remember of any examples of supposed Japanese characters with a fairly tan skin color. But if you, Mr. All-Knowing-About-Japanese-Stuff is saying so, it is probably accurate, and a fair point.

Hattori of Detective Conan is a pretty famous manga character with dark skin (which is also addressed in the series). As for real people, the first people who come up in my mind are persons like baseball player Kazuhiro Kiyohara and actor Toshiro Yanahiba (mostly because I saw them in films/variety shows lately)

They look Hispanic honestly. Because their skin is more tan and darker than most characters in the games. Also Diego is usually a mexican or a spanish name isn't it?

Note: If I come of as Racist I'm not at all, I believe everyone has a equal opportunity in everything. It dosn't matter if you are black, white, or hispanic the only thing that matters is your attitude and readiness. Same thing with gays I believe they should have equal opportunity's as everyone else because people can love anyone they want to and not be judged for it.

He meant that people in JAPAN would assume they're Asian, because having a darker skin color isn't necessarily associated with a different race there.

It's not that weird, really. I think there's plenty of people as dark as Diego in Spain, actually, but others are as light-skinned as you can get. Race is not something that defines absolutely how someone looks.

It's a fair point to me...if Diego didn't have his name I'm not sure I would have classed him as Hispanic. In the original one if he was just Japanese or Asian that's the end of it.

Acro I never really thought of as another race but I'd say his design alludes to Native American culture.

Yes Acro does look Native American. Well maybe Diego and Acro are race mixes like maybe Diego is Hispanic/Asian and Acro is Native/Asian maybe that could be the case?

He looks black to me.

Well maybe I dunno but I think he looks more Native American than Black. Also I'm I'm the Midwest so I know about the Natives who used to live around these parts. My mother is 16% Native American so that's why her skins darker than usuall. That makes me 8% Native American. Also I can tell from the markings and the objects that he has is that he is most likely Native American.

I don't really care what race a character is,honestly. What really matters to me is whether they are fun,entertaining,and well written.

I agree that no one should be judged by the color of their skin and that everyone should have a equal opportunity in everything. I'v seen the black lives matter movement and I'm like Objection! All lives matter not just African Americans!

They're not saying only black lives matter, they're saying black lives matter too since some people doesn't seem to think they do. Saying "All lives matter" is watering it out; that all lives matter is a given, but "all lives" include "black lives", and since the issue concerns black people it is concentrated on them.
