EssenceOfTruth's opinion on the matter of Aveline de Grandpre's voice actress being white and not Black prior to Kotaku's article correction.

This is where we all, no matter what race we are, need to learn how to empathize with each other. If there is no understanding, there can be no solution to anything. Especially, with racism in the gaming community.

Update (9/2/2012): Kotaku has learned that the actress Amber Goldfarb, not Sarah Natochenny as initially reported, will be doing the voice for Aveline in Assassin's Creed: Liberation.

When Assassin's Creed III made its stunning debut a few months ago, Ubisoft proudly noted that they were using an actor with Native American heritage to bring new lead character Connor Kenway/Ratohnhaké:ton to life. In the game, Connor's parents were of British and Mohawk descent and the casting of a performer who himself is half-Blackfoot felt like it made sense. Getting Noah Watts also adds much-needed diversity to the talent pool of people behind-the-scenes for video games, which is never a bad thing.

Then, the publisher announced Assassin's Creed III: Liberation for the PlayStation Vita, featuring a heroine born of a white French father and black African mother. It seemed pretty reasonable to expect that the person voicing the character would follow the Noah Watts/Connor example. Turns out that's not the case.
