Is this UK PlayStation Ad Racist?

(click ad) England's puritanical Advertising Standards Authority has banned this advert for the PlayStation Move game controller after eight Brits complained that the visual was too violent, according to Brand Republic. Two of the complainants also called the ad racist, pointing out that the white gamer was hammering the shit out of black computer character. Sony UK did not accept the complaint, saying that the two combatants just had "slightly different skin tones." Correct. Everybody knows that tattooed gym rat computer characters fake bake religiously. Note: hideous layout. Previous banned UK ads:
The Last Exorcism.
Italian tile ad with Geisha bondage.
Car trader's booby "nice headlamps" poster.

That's because you're a double reverse racist.

A true racist would've pointed out that the ad is unrealistic. A Negroid would always win in a fist fight against a white man, due to his natural athletic abilities.
