Nope nope noppiti nope nope-
Racism hurts guys.
Why would you want to bring such a delicate topic up into a fandom of a comedy anime?
I understand some moments in history were indeed centered on racism....
But you know what- It offends me.
YES- I actually get offended in behave of other races.
I am a white girl, remember? But i'm pretty much a mutt. I have many races mixed into me, and it hurts when such a topic is brought up.
I am not a sensitive person, I could care less about things going on about me or around me, but this topic honestly annoys me.
You want to know why? Because my parents are pretty racist. Sometimes I know its joking, but other times, no its not just them joking around... You don't even understand. My parents constantly go; You can't date anyone black! You can't date any stupid american! Even- you can't date anyone asian!
I AM FUCKING HALF ASIAN (Technically. Because Kazakhstan is an Asian country.)
I hate it so much.
I love all skin colors and races.
Now racism to support or destroy pairings in Hetalia is completely different so doN'T DO IT. That is just uncalled for in my opinion. Its a paring for the heck of humanity- do you really need to bring in racism? No. And no exceptions.
Why do you think I enjoy contrast pairs in Hetalia? Because racism sucks and love exists for all types of people between each other.
Plus, need I remind you, there were areas in the anime where it was WW2. WW2 was purely about racial differences. And guess what? not a single trace of racism was in the anime.
So many people were discriminated then for any race they were. ANY RACE. Canada, despite how multicultural and great we are now, we used to be EXACTLY THE SAME. We used to not let people join our country because of their race or their religion. So don't pinpoint countries, it was everyone's issue.
Guess what else? South Korea was not desired to be animated because he was found "racist and offensive" (even though i don't think he is at all and neither do my bunches of Korean friends). Yet he is still not animated.
Hetalia isn't about racism. Because its a delicate topic.
Himaruya didn't want it, so why would we?
I know Hetalia isn't the most accurate, but STILL.
I don't even want to bother with comments on this so please either don't or keep it simple?
If you really want to talk about this, note me ^^
Though if I find what you tell me offensive I won't even bother talking about it
SORRY FOR THE RANT GUYS
I JUST REALLY NEED TO DO THAT SOMETIMES
To release steam, you know?
I'm not pointing fingers, I have actually just seen this multiple times with debates and it finally got to me so much i had to rant.
