Considering the extremely small black population in Japan and the resulting prevalence of black caricatures in the general media, it's probably for the best that Nintendo doesn't even bother trying for a black main character. We'd probably end up getting another Jynx fiasco.
The real question is: why aren't American companies using more black or hispanic characters, considering that they make up a more significant portion of the population? Why do white VAs handle a good portion of all the American mascot games? How many prominent American game characters have Southern accents?
