Not racist. The racist part is where there are no positive black stereotypes. Nothing wrong with making fun.
5 years ago
Asians are THE most stereotyped race in TV and film land
5 years ago
Yep, but they have very strong positive stereotypes too.
5 years ago
Nah, there are way more positive black stereotypes than asian ones.
5 years ago
not in animation.
5 years ago
this is racist. and there are positive black stereotypes.
5 years ago
how is this racist? It's a minstrel eating a watermelon. Just because you are black, and you say it's racist, doesn't make it so. And again, not in animation. Is it racist when people make fun of english people having bad teeth and eating crumpets and drinking tea? No. You don't know what you're talking about.
5 years ago
I have wonky teeth and I eat crumpets and drink tea. I don't go crying racism wen people point it out.
5 years ago
I eat a lot of limes as well.
5 years ago
yea i dont know what i am talking a bout lol and you do? first off it is cause one the big lips and eating watermelon. going back in history this is how they made fun of black people in a racist way.
5 years ago
not crying he asked a dumb question so i am answering it like you did.
5 years ago
I think i've made my point very well. So what if they made fun of you? Like I said, it's the lack of positive roles that it racist. Are you saying nobody should make fun of you but it's ok to make fun of the english, asians and any other group or society?
5 years ago
Now for the positive black stereotype thing. there are some. That all black people are good at sports, run fast, can dance, can sing and rap, can jump.
5 years ago
They are still stereotypes that are "racist". What makes eating watermelon more racist than being good at rap or running fast?
5 years ago
Positive stereotypes are: good morals and ethics, intellect, sacrifice, selflessness, caring etc.
5 years ago
yes but not as bad as a big lip watermelon eat ignorant cartoon character. back in the day. they made cartoons like this. saying that all black people are dumb and stupid people.
5 years ago
An Asian stereotype that i dont find bad is that they are all good at math. but i am not Asian so i cant really say if it is bad or not. which i was trying to explain about this post. you can say it isn't bad but unless you were that race how can you really know if it is or not.
5 years ago
But that's not what this is. And some black people are dumb, just as some white people are. In cartoons, they arent saying that ALL black people are, but whats the point in animating a normal bllack person? HENCE, the racist part being that there are no positive black types in animation.
5 years ago
Exactly td, that's a good point. How about people just accept that they have good and bad points and people are goin to make fun of them?
5 years ago
That way nobody is superior. There is such a thing called freedom of expression.
5 years ago
I dont really have a problem with some racist jokes. if i did i wouldn't watch or like south park or family guy. and there are positive black cartoon characters lol. just wasn't any back in the day. like this one in the post
5 years ago
I love and hate all races.
5 years ago
Give me one example of a positive black cartoon character
5 years ago
Yeah, that's true, there were none back in the early 1900's but black people weren't singled out. They just struggled with narrative, and music, and used formats people were familiar with. If black people were animating too, they would be doing the thing.
5 years ago
..or an asian one for that matter

*as in making fun of white people.

Is white chicks racist thatdude?
5 years ago
White chicks isn't animated, hollywood is a whole different kettle of fish.
5 years ago
jacki chan in his cartoons?
5 years ago
black people make fun of white people. just like all races do. i am or never have i ever said black people are better then white people. and to answer your question yes white chicks can in some way be considered as racist.
5 years ago
so then is racism, as you define it, wrong?
5 years ago
Compare jackie chans characters in his hong kong movies against his western movies
5 years ago
this is why stereotyping is a more appropriate term.
5 years ago
I've never seen the cartoon, it's just the first thing that came to mind. I have a lot of manga from the 90's, ninja scroll, akira, etc. It shows lots of goood and bad roles.
5 years ago
@ MD yes it can be if you try to hurt someone feelings. i dont think they was trying to hurt white people feelings by pretending to be white chicks in that movie. there was a part in that movie trading places were dan aykroyd was in black face and i never thought it was racist.
5 years ago
If you think 1940's animators were tryin to hurt your feelings but the wyan brother's werent then you are crazy biased. They were both trying to entertain. Trying to hurt peoples feelings doesnt attract people to your work.

When ever a character is created with a specific race, job, age it's a given that they will be stereotyped. Imagine how boring everything would be if old people in movies just sat around watching tv all day or cops went to work and did paperwork.

racism sucks ass. we should just hate people for their actions not the color of their skin.
5 years ago
Hate is the operative word.
5 years ago
Yeah, I agree. And saying this picture is as bad as the racist actions of hitler, doesn't make sense to me.
5 years ago
btw ninja scroll = awesome.

Fuck off I'm busy
5 years ago
hold up i never said anything about Hitler lol. that mother fucker hate everyone. I just said its hard to say what is and isn't racist unless you are that race.
5 years ago
like some people think i am getting butt hurt and over reacting when i tell someone to fuck off and eat shit every time they call me a nigger. you dont understand how that word makes me feel cause you are not black.
5 years ago
Whats with you and nigger anyway? I have a black friend (yup just one, there arn't many black people in Oz) and we call each other "my nigger" all the time. I got so used to it I started calling everyone my nigger....I got some strange looks sometimes lol
5 years ago
you are fucking retarded
5 years ago
i am going to smoke now.
5 years ago
Do you and your black friends call each other nigger or negro? Here's what I dont get, if its such an offensive word then why do black people use it with each other all the fucking time? As soon as a white guy calls his pal my nigger everyone looks at me like I just punched an old lady!
5 years ago
I just figured you out. You're just a plain old asshole
5 years ago
first off it's nigga not nigger. and no i dont use that word at all. i say dude instead of the word nigga when i am talking to my friends. dumb ass.
