Why is everyone so raciest?

Why do people care if there are 'black' champions? Wouldn't it only matter as long as it went with the aesthetic?

Nidalee, dark skinned woman from the jungle. Of all the different races of humans, I wonder what skin color people from tropical regions tend to be versus people who come from temperate areas versus people from colder areas.

Karma...I don't know why they claim she is black, it doesn't make sense considering the rest of Ionia is asian. She is dark skin, could be northern Chinese or something.

Lucien is a Templar, does everyone know what time period this term comes from? It makes sense for him to be arab/northern african. Dark skin makes sense thematically considering the area and time period that term came from. (I know if we were being ultra strict and pointing out that knight Templar would mean he should be white, but that is a whole different trope to explain, why middle ages crusade people in fiction are dark skin [basically its related to the idea that angelic beings have dark skin portrayal because early man came from the middle east, so they should be similar in appearance to angels, ergo angels have dark skin]).

If this game had no white champions, the player base would be lower.

I don't know why riot used Eastern and Middle asian influences to define Ionian style, when real Ionia is in the present day Turkish area

Believing that certain dark skin champions are not "black" enough to be considered black is more annoying and nitpicky than people saying certain champs are black.

And Karma was confirmed black by riot so that's good enough.

A black girl cosplayed as Karma and was criticized and email riot. This was the response from a rioter. http://s1088.photobucket.com/user/Tifapally/media/confirm.png.html
