Have you ever seen a African American or any other race besides Japenese or whatever the anime is. I have never seen a different colored person on the cartoon. Please correct me if im wrong.

What do you mean by stupid stereotype?

And no, if there are any people of other races in the anime, they are seldom seen (Brock is the same race as everyone else, he just has a darker skin tone). But honestly, what difference would it make? I'm black, I'm not trying to offend anybody, but I really don't care. The show would still be exactly the same, people who like the anime watch it because it's interesting, not because they love to see all the caucasians and asians walking around everywhere.

I mean it's a peice of garbage that's designated towards black people. I'm not black but most of my friends are so I feel like Jynx is garbage.

Either way the show would still be the same, I mean it's not like they make the black guy different from anyone else. :?

I'm black and Jynx is one of my favorite pokemon. Sure, I like the purple version better than the black one, but that's just because I think it's prettier. And it's not like they MEANT to offend people.

I see no color(in a figure of speech) maybe becuase I'm ignorant for not knowing about racsism. Black people in shows and games do add a bit more appeal. Now even though I'm not hispanic, what you never see is a hispanic person in a show.

You guys forgot bout Phoebe. And I think racism is just too st00pid. Y' know, insulting someone just cos s/he is black seems out-of-sense.

No, not really. :/

If caucasians put non-caucadians in their cartoons, then I'm sure Japanese people can do the same.

Besides, what does it matter? Would it make the show different?

You people are getting too defensive.

He was just wondering if there were any blacks in Pokemon, he's not saying the show would be any different if there were.

And there's Kidd, who is pwnsome.
