    Default Most racist cartoon of the decade

    It's Xiaolin Showdown.

    Talk about using racial stereotypes in cartoons. WOW! The main character, who's supposed to be Asian, literally has YELLOW SKIN. I'm not kidding!

    Looking back, yeah the show was pretty racist. Kimiko as the quintessential cutesy Japanese girl, Clay the cowboy, it was pretty bad.

    I still liked it, though. :3 Probably still would even now, if I watched it again.

    I actually believe they recently made (or are making, not sure) a new series of it.

    I wouldn't call it racist. Yeah, sure it was very stereotypical, most things are in entertainment these days though.

    Racist? Almost actually, but this show was more stereotypical than anything. Honestly though, him being colored yellow was borderline jawdropping and was no better than Jynx from Pokemon being black and having big lips. We all know what the makers had in mind making this without a doubt, but racist? Eh. Nah.

    Yes it's stereotyping, but it is also racist because such stereotyping is known to offend Asians (referring to them as having yellow skin is very offensive to many Asians). So it is an offensive stereotype. That's why I called it racist. Depicting the American guy as a cowboy though is not racist, because even though it's stereotyping, most Americans are not offended by this kind of portrayal.

    Showing Asians with yellow skin is like showing Blacks eating fried chicken and watermelon, or being lazy, or with exaggerated big lips. It's the very same type of stereotyping that got the "censored 11" cartoons completely censored/banned (pulled from normal distribution, such that you can only find them on Youtube now).

    Ever give thought to maybe he's just tanned? Please give note to the other Asian in this picture and the other Asians in the show.

    She's not yellow at all.
    In fact of the other Asians characters, only Grand Master Dashi is also yellow, though less yellow than Omi.

    The Japanese girl is very pale, almost pure white in color. This is also a stereotype. It's bases on Geishas, who wore white makeup.

    Well if comic books are considered as cartoons (to allow the broader definition of the term), then I'd say that the Tintin books were pretty much borderline racist, and they make some of the other "racist" cartoons seem almost politically correct by comparison...

    I mean, come on; we don't all wear daft hats like that!



    Edit: I just remembered: Tintin is an animated cartoon as well!

    Still doesn't explain the other Asians in the show, dude. And that's not really a stereotype, Asians have a myriad of skin tones much like White people. Those who are poorer and live in more rural areas tend to be more tanned due to working in the sun all day. Those in more urban areas and have some level of income tend to be much whiter. I haven't see all that many tanned Asians that are of Chinese, Korean, and Japanese descent. Those in more poorer and rural nations like Laos, Taiwan, Cambodia, tend to be more tanned. At the same time you have to consider the geographical climate of where they live and where their ancestry lived. Most Asians in Alaska are damney whiter than me. But many that trace their roots to the Polynesian Islands, Phillipines, Taiwan, Thailand, and more are still fairly tanned despite the climate.

    Actually it's not racist, just cliche. They were meant to represent people in certain areas and well there are people like them in the places they were supposed to have come from. I mean you wouldn't expect a Rastafarian being raised in a xiaolin temple in China, now would you?
    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    so does that mean that black characters having brown skin, jews wearing yamakas, rednecks driving big trucks, germans drinking beer, russians being tough, mongolians breaking walls, japanese people attacking the whales in seaworld, people from amsterdam smoking a lot of pot, americans eating cheeseburgers, british people hiding in subways, women from thailand having boy-parts downstairs, and arabs making police car noises followed by a loud bang in cartoons now is also racist?

    dang, just where the heck have i been for the last decade? I never received a memo or anything.

    Are you saying Cyborg is a racist stereo type (and not just because his body has a built in stereo)?

    Anime is a lot like sex. Done right it's a beautiful act of creation that brings a little more light into the world. If it's sick and wrong... it's even better.

    First, if your best shot at racist cartoons is Xiaolin Showdown, a cartoon that came out ten bloody years ago, then you must not have a life. At the very least, use a cartoon that actually runs on racism, like Drawn Together, which actually has a character that is basically a racist caricature.



    Second, Omi having yellow skin should actually be one of your least concerns. How about the fact that he speaks in broken English and butchers most idiomatic phrases? Hell, most of the main characters are stereotypical: Kimiko is Japanese and tech-savvy, Clay is Texan and speaks in metaphors, and Raimundo is a street smart rebel. This isn't unique to Xaiolin Showdown; cultural stereotypes are present in most cartoons.

    Now, while stereotypes of this type are inherently racist, this doesn't mean that the cartoons, in and of themselves, are racist (well, with the exception of Drawn Together) or that the people that they represent actually give a damn. In fact, some of these "racist" cartoons have people of that race working on the show. Hell, the creator of Xiaolin Showdown is a Chinese-American woman.

    If you are going to stick unnecessary racism into cartoons, be better prepared for an argument. Do a little better than "X character's skin is yellow."

    This is my war face.

    This is what happens to trolls who mess with me.

    I'm still struggling to see 'yellow skinned' Asians. Most look pretty white to me. Just more olivey-skinned.
    Yeah, stereotypes are inevitable in children's cartoons because kids see the world through stereotypes.

    Well yeah Drawn Together is meant to be offensive, it parodies stuff. And satire often involves offensive humor, and of course this is the route Drawn Together takes with its more "adult" humor. Kids shows like Xiaolin Showdown are NOT supposed to be offensive though.

    And yes it may be an old cartoon, but I recently saw an add for it on Cartoon Network (I think that was the channel). I think that they are restarting the series of something. When I saw in that ad, the Asian kid with the yellow face, I was considering reporting the TV station to the ACLU or Anti-Defamation League, or other group that is known for being against racism/stereotypes/bigotry, on account of them running this cartoon. Until I'd seen that ad, I'd not known what the cartoon was about, nor had I seen any pics of it (just heard of its name). After seeing that ad, I was shocked and offended. And I'm not even Asian. I'm white.

    I picked Drawn Together as an example because if you are going to talk about "the most racist cartoon of the decade", Drawn Together is a much better candidate. It isn't exempt because it isn't kid's show. Hell, we can put South Park and Family Guy on that list too while we are at it.

    And when it comes to cartoons not being offensive...well, we will get to that in a bit.

    Well, that's a problem for two reasons. One, it is one thing to find something offensive and another thing to be personally offended by it. Since you are white, you can only be "offended" by this show by a certain amount since it doesn't apply to you. Being offended as a third-party makes no sense to me. You can be sympathetic sure, but being offended is silly.

    Second, as I have said before, stereotypes are inherently racist, however, their "offensiveness" is judged by the people being stereotyped. If those people don't care, why should anyone else? Xiaolin Showdown was on the air for three years and I don't remember hearing about people being offended by it, particularly since the creator of the show is Asian (surely she isn't using a kids show to push stereotypes...about herself). Omi being yellow isn't the best decision, but it doesn't make Xiaolin Showdown the most racist cartoon.

    Plus, there is honestly no pleasing some people. Even if Omi had the typical "crayola-apricot" skin color, people would complain that we were making Asians white (and whitewashing is very typical in Hollywood, so this argument could happen) or put some other spin on it. Hell, you think that Kimiko's white skin is some connection to geishas. It can't be for any OTHER reason. That is about as bad as when some people were complaining that Jake from American Dragon: Jake Long was shorter than his love interest Rose, saying that it was using the stereotype that Asians are short.



    Of course, it can't be because they are both teenagers and Jake would go through puberty later than Rose and therefore be shorter than her.

    Omi's skin color is a bit racist, but isn't the most racist thing on television. And it is really silly that despite everything else in the show, his skin color has to derail everything. God help us if we ever decide to pair up an Asian with the color yellow.

    That last one though was offensive. I read on the net in fact that's why the next time they had an Asian power ranger, they didn't use a yellow costume. In fact I don't think there's been another yellow power ranger since who's been Asian.

    Why of the decade? Let's go back to Disney in the 40s. >.> Ironically, nobody thought things like this were racist.



    On topic: I really haven't seen many cartoons that were super racist, but just about everything has something someone takes offensively, even if it's not meant to be offensive. I think people who worry about racism in cartoons have too much time on their hands and really are thinking too far in depth with it. It's kinda like saying Daffy and Bugs is a racist thing because Daffy always loses and Bugs always wins. Kids don't even care about those things anyway. If anything, people should be worried about the sexual content that gets thrown into cartoons.
