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. 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 first death of a person in the movie is a graphic scene of a black young adult being brought in on a stretcher, with a variety of graphic and real unpleasant injuries post being hit by truck, and dying before he can be given medical assistance. You don't see him be hit by the truck.

He is not the first character to die, but he is the first black main protag to die. He is thought to be dead by Polnareff and the audience for an episode or so, but turns out to be fine.

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.

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.

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

It's possible that he was only unconscious/incapacitated; his only visible injury is where the gremlin has stabbed him with a syringe, which was probably just local anaesthetic or antibiotics or something (he was planning on injecting the Mogwai). The only confirmed on-screen human death is an elderly white woman who is characterised as a cruel, unpleasant person.

Weird question for this movie, but technically the black guy (Fridge, inhabiting Jack Black's body) is the first to "die" (a temporary video game death). He immediately comes back and survives to the end of the film.
