Actually, I’m African American(partially). My hair is straight, unless I make it stay curly. Curly, not kinky. My nose is not “flat” as you call it. It was rather pointed, in fact, until I broke it in middle school. my lips are not huge. Everything that you stated is in fact racist, because it is based upon a stereotype. And, as a fan of the entire Avatar series, most of the Water tribe has darker skin than the rest of those in the series. This does NOT mean they are black. But I’ve never seen a white person with caramel skin. Thank you. Point made. Bunch of racist sods you are.
Korra is not black. She doesn’t have thick curly hair or a flat nose or huge lips………….. Sorry but its true.
Don’t ruin my TV shows.
And Ricksantorum-2012 WONDERS why we think he’s a racist sod?
Seriously, dude, get your eyes checked. Or your head while we’re at it.
How’s that racist? Those are the features usually associated with black people. It’s like saying white people have lighter skin and straight hair. That’s a fact. It’s not racism.
You’re missing the ENTIRE point of this, and mucking up the situation even further, Santorum2016. As always.
First off, not everyone that is black is exactly the same, with those features. Many have them— it does not ever mean all.
Just as not all white people have your straight hair.
You CANNOT peg an entire race of people with one direct set of features. To COMPLETELY deny that someone could be a bit different, and still be classified within that group, is ridiculous.
And this isn’t about him pointing out that black people have those features. It’s about him defending this character being drawn white, when she clearly is not. She looks much more around the range of black/native in some way. Not white at all.
Get your head out of your ass and pay attention to the actual argument.
