Are video games racist?

Starhawk, available in May, may resemble a lot of third-person shooters out there with one exception — the video game’s protagonist,¬†Emmett Graves, is black.¬†In 2011, the writer of the game, Anthony Gallegos, commented on the color skin of the main character, and the stigma often associated with the “ideal” characters of video games.

Do you think video games are racist for generally featuring white main characters? Or could you care less what the color skin of the hero is?
