Does the black guy die first?

Having the black character die first or be the only black character to die is a racist trope that people want to know about before they go into a movie so they don't get their hopes up.

Sort of? A lot of other people are killed trying to protect him, but he is the first major character to die.

Sort of. The first dead bodies shown are white, but their deaths occurred before the start of the film. The first character to actually be killed onscreen is a black man.

He does, actually. The actor Jophery C Brown played the worker who got eaten alive by a raptor at the beginning of the movie.

The entire game is choice based, and depending on how you play or your luck with quick-time events, this is possible

to be fair, the entire movie circulates around his death and has a majority black cast, so if you want to know for racism reasons and not trigger reasons, then its still safe to see.

Actually, yeah. Gets stabbed in the face, in a bathroom, pretty graphic really. 2nd victim is a black woman, stabbed multiple times in a crowded theater while screaming for help, no one realizes it's serious until she's already dead. Another black woman is stabbed later in the movie.

A black man with 1 or 2 lines (he's an extra more than a character) gets killed by aliens. He is the first human to die in the film.

In part 3, Muhammad Avdol is the first of the main cast to die, and it happens twice. The first time is a fake death (that was believed to be real to the audience, but then he surprisingly returns) and the second time he dies for real due to a stand attack, both times he is the first to die
