Black Anime Girl Pfp – Why are black characters always weird or crazy in anime?
I’ve noticed something recently while watching anime. Many of the characters that aren’t Asian are black… and they’re always drawn with dark skin tones, weird hairstyles (like afro-puffs), or crazy personalities. Does this bother you or is it no big deal? Why do you think so many black characters have these traits when other races don’t seem to get this treatment?
I’ve noticed that a lot of anime characters who are not asian are black in the anime or manga.
I’ve noticed that a lot of anime characters who are not asian are black in the anime or manga. I have seen this many times and it seems to be mostly in fantasy type stories.
I have noticed that these characters are drawn with dark skin tones and some sort of crazy personality as well as being villains, rich people or both!
Do you have any idea why that is? Like, why are they always drawn as crazy or weird?
You know what’s a stereotype? The idea of black girls being crazy or weird. You know what else is a stereotype? The idea of black girls being loud, too. So when you combine all three of these stereotypes into one character, it becomes a caricature: an exaggerated version of something that isn’t real–and definitely doesn’t represent every person who fits into any one category (or even most).
So why do anime creators keep doing this? Well, they’re not necessarily doing it on purpose–it’s just easier for us as viewers to identify with characters when they’re very similar to us in appearance and personality traits like these ones! But at the same time…it does feel kinder than some other kinds of racism we see in media today…
The only characters that aren’t really like this are people who have super powers and magic skills.
They’re usually drawn with dark skin tones because they are black, but also because they have super powers. This leads me to believe that all anime characters are white unless they have special abilities.
The other characters that aren’t black, are either people from rich families, or rich themselves.
The other characters that aren’t black, are either people from rich families, or rich themselves. They have super powers or magic skills and can do things that normal people can’t do.
They’re also white.
Most non-black people who aren’t bad guys are rich.
If you’re a black anime viewer, you may have noticed that most of the characters are rich. If a non-black character isn’t bad, they’re usually rich. In fact, it’s rare to see a black character in an anime who isn’t also poor or working class (or both).
The only exception to this rule is if your character happens to be one of those weirdos who lives in a trailer park with his mommy and daddy on welfare while playing video games all day long–but then again, even then he’ll probably still be pretty well off compared to other people in his neighborhood!
Well, maybe my opinion is biased because most of the anime’s I’ve seen have main characters who are rich or have super powers or something like that.
You’re not wrong, but it’s not like that’s the only thing you can find in anime. There are plenty of shows with main characters who are poor, don’t have super powers and don’t live in a fantasy world. But I guess my opinion is biased because most of the anime’s I’ve seen have main characters who are rich or have super powers or something like that.
So…what do you think about this topic? Are there any black characters that don’t have a crazy personality? Why do so many of them seem to be drawn with dark skin tones? How do you feel about that? Does it bother you or is it no big deal, to draw/read black characters in this way? Why do they have to be weird or crazy while other races don’t usually seem to get this treatment? To me, it seems like black girls (especially) get treated differently than white girls when it comes to character designs.
I don’t know if it’s because people think black girls are “bad” or something like that. I mean, there are plenty of white characters who are also weird and crazy but for some reason, they don’t seem to get this treatment…Why do you think that is?
I think it’s really interesting that you brought this up, because I’ve noticed the same thing. It seems like black characters are always drawn with dark skin tones, while other races don’t usually seem to get this treatment. I think it’s important for us as anime fans to talk about how our favorite shows portray different races in their art styles because it impacts how we view ourselves and others in real life!
