Racism and Japanese Children's Cartoons
Dear Leftist Anti-Freedom F*ckwad:
Your insinuations that Japanese children's cartoons are racist because they portray
characters with features similar to that of a minstrel in blackface, and that the
image of a stoned Rastafarian (along with the insinuations of others) have opened
up the door for a whole new wave of censorship and oppression. All you have done is
perpetuate the racial and cultural tension that create such hateful ideals.
Firstly, the Rastafarian image, while somewhat disrespectful, is not at all inaccurate.
The Rastafarian faith centers around study of Biblical text while under the influence
of cannabis. This is because of the belief that God bestowed upon man ALL seed baring
plants for his prosperity. You would know this if you had done any research before
insinuating that an entire religion is racist against it's own people.
Secondly, it's worth noting that The Jynx and Mr. Popo images originate from Japan,
a country where black people are not so commonly seen, while ignorant and perhaps
somewhat offensive, pressuring artists and media to alter their work in favour of
your sensitivity, is selfish and fascist. Furthermore, it's interesting that you draw
attention to the Japanese portrayal of black Americans but not the American portrayal
of Asians. If you're devoted to fighting racism, why only mention racism against blacks?
Not to mention that black Americans refer to "crackers" and "honkeys" on a regular
basis, while black comedians portray whites in a highly stereotypical manner. You
can claim fair play because of the generations of stereotypical black portrayals,
except for the fact that such imagery is no longer allowed to exist. Censorship is
the purest form of oppression, and the fact that an image or idea offends is not reason
to silence it.
In light of all of this; it seems to me that rather than being in favour of equality,
you're really in favour of black supremacy. Fascist.
