Is Anime Racist?

Lucy from Fairy Tail represents anime's prototypical character: happy, dumb, and white.


TOKYO (Accredited Times) – Japan has a long history of racism. In World War II, the Empire of Japan allied with Nazi Germany, even as the Nazis slaughtered six million Jews in the Holocaust. Japan itself not only participated in the horrific genocide, but it also engaged in its own gross human rights violations, including torturing thousands of prisoners of war and raping millions of Korean “comfort women.”

But that’s all changed, right? WRONG. Japan remains the same deeply racist and xenophobic country that it was over seventy years ago. Since 1955, Japan’s right-wing “Liberal Democratic Party” — which is neither “liberal,” nor “democratic,” nor a “party” — has almost continuously held power. Meanwhile, consistent with its right-wing ideology, Japan has shunned Muslims and other immigrants despite the proven benefits and cultural enrichment that arise from multiculturalism, diversity, and shariah law. Unlike the People’s Republic of China, Japan even eschews traditionally African-American sports, like basketball, instead opting for white sports, like baseball, soccer, and figure skating.

Unfortunately, one of Japan’s racist exports has swept through the world like a Godzilla-triggered conflagration: ANIME.

In the world of anime, whiteness rules. Entire programs lack African-American and Hispanic-American characters, and social justice themes are almost completely absent. The ideal anime character? Happy, dumb, and white. Take, for example, Kana Minami from the hit show Minami Ke:

Notice that Kana, a white woman, is wearing a shirt stating, “I AM BOSS”. While progressives can applaud this shirt for undermining traditional gender norms, the shirt raises troubling questions as to White Privilege. Why is a white person wearing an “I AM BOSS” shirt despite centuries of oppression of People of Color by whites? Moreover, if a white is indeed the boss, who are the servants? Or, more precisely, who are the slaves, and where are they? Notably, African-Americans are completely absent from Minami Ke.

Similarly, in the Vision of Escaflowne, Princess Millerna represents the perfect anime ideal of beauty and class. Notice anything about the character?

Again: happy, dumb, and white.

Meanwhile, guess who serves as Princess Millerna’s love interest in the show? Oh, that’s right, another white, Allen Schezar, who supposedly embodies chivalry in all its forms, yet is never seen attending a protest, a social justice event, or even a Gay Pride Parade despite his obvious gayish appearance:

In anime, you will never see a character modeled after important African-American role models, like Gabourey Sidibe (nominated for an Oscar for her role in Precious):

Similarly, not a single anime program bears any resemblance to The Cosby Show, a program showing that African-American families can be affluent AND socially conscious at the same time:

Anime revels in whiteness. Just look at this theme song from the hit show Fairy Tail:

The song essentially involves a blonde white girl running to syrupy white music with Japanese and English lyrics. Or look at this opening theme song from Minami Ke:

White girls flying through the sky? Seriously? Where are the African-American, Hispanic-American, or Muslim American characters? Why are none of the girls wearing burkas or hijabs?

Anime’s racism needs to end NOW.

You are absolutely right BLM – just look at the wide eyes and blonde hair on these anime characters! Why are they holding up white people as the standard of beauty? Why hasn’t Japan taken a single Muslim refugee? Why are they still killing innocent whales? I want answers!

White people are not allowed to be exclusively featured in any film or TV series, because whiteness is a disease! I have a degree in critical race theory so I know what I’m taking about! Is critical race theory even a degree in Japan? If it isn’t, that tells you all you need to know about this pathetic country.

Thank you BLM, I had no idea of the magnitude of the anime problem. Now that you have exposed the seedy underbelly of the anime beast there will be many warriors that will champion your anti-white cause to help slay this hideous monster.

Their sly with their Yellow Privilege in making the Whites look even worse, while trying to hide in the shadows without getting dirty. Well thanks to BLM the Asian Devils are exposed for what they really are.

No, they don’t have yellow privilege; no such thing exists.

There is only white privilege. Nonwhites can actually have white privilege as well, which is when we see nonwhites disproving progressive narratives. They can be “identified” as “white.” Or the “system” can treat them as “white.”

So no matter white, being white is always bad and even explains asian domination of average incomes in the USA. Indians earn the most and they have white privilege as well whenever we want to blame white people for something that an indian did wrong.

Yup I wrote an article on Asian privilege, but I think you’re right – even if Asians did something wrong, or outperform in some way, that is still WHITE privilege. China is very racist towards people of color, but only white people get called racist by progressives, so only whites are racist. I’ve read that whites even invented racism – it didn’t exist before that.

That makes sense, but just to clarify the complete progressive narrative please answer the following question. Can white privilege exist in a society/civilization where there are no whites?

Well-researched article BLM!

Did you know Anime is an anagram of ENIMA which urban dictionary describes as “sexual act performed by Chuck Norris on a platypus”?

So it’s not only racist, it’s also SPECIEST as well.

Please flag accordingly!

BLM, I love your writing and am happy you are joining the struggle. Only through progressive articles like this one can we win the revolution.

Meanwhile, fascist Brussels’ policemen have tonight planted explosives on an Asian man and made these explode, thus causing him to have a tinder date with 72 virgins this very night. No infidels were caught up in the explosion. Nobody has a clue what the motives might have been.

These Asian terrorists need to be stopped! WE need to close the borders to China and Japan IMMEDIATELY until we have this under control!
