why hasn't there been a black character in LoL yet

Why are multiple people mentioning Taric? He's so goddamn white.

It's slightly ambiguous in some of his splash art, but his skin is just a little dark because he's in caves.

Taric was black before the white RIOT overlords changed him.

Biggest offender is Pulsefire Ezreal being white when he's obviously based on Barret from FF7

Because black people whine about racism. Let me give you an example. Lets say for instance voice overs....
Lee Sin: foce is meaninress widout skiw
Asian poeple: (doesn't even care about the voice) OMG if they give this guy a Bruce Lee skin...
OMG THEY GAVE HIM A BRUCE LEE SKIN!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH TAKE MY MONIES!
Fiora: such unwefline stile
French Canadians: haha that voice over is so bad we don't sound like that.
Some Black Champion: Lets get down to bidness
African Americans: WTF is this racist a** s*** good thing i got NAACP on speed dial

I can understand why Riot doesn't want to touch that with a 20 foot pole.

Also Myrmidon Pantheon is very black and Nasus seems to be Egyptian inspired.


Just give him/her dark skin complexion without the offensive stereotypically ignorant dialect? That's really not that difficult.
S2 clearly failed at this when they created http://www.heroesofnewerth.com/images/heroes/120/store_alt.jpg who's voiceovers match the stereotype too perfectly...

Also, LoL...if an Egyptian came here, I would think he/she will fall into the "African-American" category. Sorry that's not "black" enough for you, TC.
