Petition Asking For Link To Be A Young Black Female

Sifting through my backlog of news feed stories this morning and the title of this one caught my eye.
Someone has created a petition on Change.ORG asking for Link from the Zelda games to be made a Young Black Female.
Here is a quote from the poll:

For too many years have the black community been underrespresented in the video game industry. Nintendo went too far this time when they chose to make the new Link white and white only. We need to end this injustice, equality has sadly still not been truly achieved.
