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.

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

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

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.

yep, and a black kid. I found this movie scary and good, but I don't remember 1990 being that racist. They have doctors and patients smoking in the hospital in their room/office. I remember thinking how that dated the original, but 15 years later, they're still at it

Sort of. The first death is the murder of an unnamed black woman who has no lines. Beyond that, many characters of various races are killed, including at least two prominent black characters.
