I'm starting to find Riot's obsession with Asia disturbing

I think a black champion would be pretty cool actually. League of Legends has a lot of silly characters that sometimes look like they've been plucked out of different eras of time. How would you guys feel about a huge, black space marine type character whose escape pod landed on Runeterra? I think that would be pretty badass. I wouldn't want the technology overplayed or anything, but it would be cool in the lore if they pulled it off right, and he'd probably fit in with some of the Piltover guys.

actually I am, not that it makes my post any less valid.


I actually feel it negates nearly your entire post as just more complaining.


Really? Are you a racist? I'm white, and I agree with him. There should be a black champ. Though if he's as racist as Killer Bee was in Naruto than I think I'd rather not see 'em.

Why does it always seem to be a black guy complaining that his race isn't given enough screen time, or coverage, or whatever? Or saying he's being kept down?


Last I checked, my friend had college FULLY PAID FOR due to different scholastic groups, and his grades were worse than mine, while his family made more money than mine... I wanna be persecuted like that D:


I'm black and have no such luck, tell me what he did :x.

I have a feeling that Riot would receive massive criticism for perpetuating whatever stereotypes people can find if they made a black champion. It'd either be "too black" or "not black enough".

Could you imagine if they made Nidalee Black/African, with dark skin and an afro how mad blacks would be? OMG SPEARCHUCKER!? RACIST! Good call on Riots part to just give her white skin, hair and features. Potential backlash averted.
