idk the context of this but of course it’s a brown person who gets called out for appropriating or misunderstanding an east asian culture when it seems like the manga-ka is completely stereotyping brown people to be ignorant cultureless morons. while refusing to answer for the loads of appropriation and ridicule of brown cultures that east asian cultures are accountable for.
kinda tired of it tbh. i see stuff like this but not much about east asians getting collected for blatant anti-blackness and appropriation when the latter happens 24 fucking 7.
I’d like to ask why the mangaka didn’t use a white person since there are FAR more white people fucking up then there are brown ones. The fact that they used a Black person says a lot really. - J
the guy who writes and draws this manga isn’t white or east asian though
omg felipe smith is even pretty well known for being a foreigner writing for comic mags in japan what are people doing.
So can brown people not be otakus now or somethin is that what were implying here? Kawaii.
This is some tumblr shit right here.
