I think it's high time we decide this. Feel free to discuss and post evidence for your case.

There's nothing black about either of them... Knuckles doesn't talk or act black, he's just been given rap music as a theme song. Shadow doesn't talk or act black either. As far as i'm aware white people can also drive cars and carry guns... and fight space alliens. The only black thing about Shadow is his fur/spines/whatever.

Assuming this is pre Sonic X, Knuckles just sounds blacker. Shadow's like an old angsty British dude or something.Actually...save for his fur...Shadow's not black at allMeanwhile Knuckles will sooner beat your ass then ask about the past

Shadow's a wigger. He poses as a black guy with guns and shit. Knuckles is the true black guy. He can kick the crap out of people and he's strong. Also, pre Sonic X, he sounded black too (That and the rap themes :P)

It's got to be Knuckles in my opinion. He glides, which no white-boy will ever be able to do without biting their bottom lip. He also has far more attitude than Shadow, who has just created his own angst. Furthermore, Knuckles clearly has more style, which is shown by his choice of hats, suglasses and shoes (Jamaican flag colours). He even has a Nike swoosh on his chest.

Here's some stuff to consider.Shadow is emo, therefore whiteyPosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Imageand yet....Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Imageknuckles... pro abortion? or is it for breaking into cars?Posted Imageplus he totally wants to bang a white chickPosted Imagehe also has emotions other than "angst" "sorrow" and "wanabee badass". he also has dredlocksPosted ImageProbably the most obvious argument is the fact that knuckles has been represented with rap/hiphop music whereas shadow gets metal type stuff. Metal is pretty predominantly white.BUT WAIT, PERHAPS I AM OVERLOOKING SOMEONE!Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

However, you're a nigger if you're black even if you are not even in touch with black culture and prefer white culture. Thus, Shadow is and will forever will be, more of a nigger than Knuckles, even if knuckles acts more like a black guy.

I dunno... personally I like the atittude they gave knuckles in the OVA... casual, gullible, a bit nutty but dependable. Not white, not black, not anything.. just fucking... i dunno? Normal?I think this whole "black" shit started when the games were reworked to try and appeal to the more hip-hop oriented culture at the end of the 90's and into 2000. It's all about marketing and pandering to the largest demographic... Blus, when I worked at a game store in a predominately black city, black people fucking LOVED them some Sonic. Genesis was "the shit" and Sonic kicked ass. So in re-making a character (Knux) that they could even more easilly relate to, they secured a larger product base. Same goes for the Shadow crap... girls already liked Sonic games to some degree, but having sShadow and his torn soul bullshit secured the deal. Shadow is also now considered the badass character (where Knuckles once was), so he also appeals to little kids.I dunno, when I was little, I liked Sonic 'cause he was a prick, but he still stood for something... now he's just a fucknig bland "hero" Maybe thats one reason I like the archie comics, because Sonic has a personality still.The only argument that could legitemately be made for ANY of this is 1) for Knuckles, and 2) because, although I don't think he was necessarilly meant to be "black", he DID fit the kind of tribal category since he's an islander, and both his themes in S3&K reinforced this atmosphere.EDIT: I want Sir B's opinion on the debate :P

Where are the red and silver in that flag? Even if Shadow's skin is darker than Knuckles' skin, the red guy is more african-american due his jamaican look in the 16-32 bits games, the rap music in the adventure games, the bad way he's treated by Sonic, and the bad words and manners that Emerl learned from him.In my opinion :-D
