Re: Lets stop Asian hate - what can we do?

Racistism towards Asians (Easter Asians) have always existed forever. That's a bit of a stretch. Prior to the Early-Modern period, you didn't have contemporary racial categories to begin with. However, it has gotten worse since Covid. Trump is able to make people hate Asian people because of Covid ...

Re: Lets stop Asian hate - what can we do?

White people control the majority of the power in the world. Debatable. China is arguably the second most powerful nation in the world and it has 4 times as many people as the United States. Both China and Japan are within the top 3 nations with the best economy. And China has three corporations th...

Corporations aren't limited to white people. And no, they do not have absolute power over you.

Re: Lets stop Asian hate - what can we do?

And that is that America was founded by white elites who very much wanted to consolidate power for themselves. That is patently untrue. The Constitution and the separation of powers are all designed to limit a concentration of power. If the Founding Fathers wanted power to themselves, then they wou...

A game with the Shonen Jump roster (like Jump Force) but gameplay like Dragon Ball FighterZ, and developed by Arc System Works.

I can't act, so no. I wouldn't want to further taint the quality of Super.

Re: Would you have liked more female or feminine looking namekians?

Well Ratchet & Clank doesn't have any humans. I don't even think humans exist in that universe. That wasn't why I brought it up. R&C is an example of a franchise that has a wide variety of races, but also has a handful that are front and center, most prominently the Lombaxes. Thus if you wanted to ...

Re: Would you have liked more female or feminine looking namekians?

I mean, as a marginalized person--the type to be turned into a gutless metaphor by mainstream fiction--I just don't care for metaphors and find them frankly insulting. Progress has to be forced through amd seeing a metaphor for a person like me no matter the year is just...ugh. It bugs the hell out...

You don't have to be able to identify the reasoning behind every single instance of casual racism in order to prove it.
That's not what I said. I said being able to identify the reasoning behind "micro-aggression".

Re: Would you have liked more female or feminine looking namekians?

If that is the case, then gender should not be inherent in it anyways Why not? We're talking about an alien species. You certainly could have a (fictional) alien species that has a form of dimorphism that resembles human sexual dimorphism, but the morphology doesn't serve a sexual reproductive func...

Re: Would you have liked more female or feminine looking namekians?

How would a namekian of human-female features look like? If it is an asexual species, then they won't have mammary sexual organs or features, so the only distinguishing factor in the appearance must come from the facial complexion. Maybe flatter eyebrow muscles? I'm not even sure if it could work.....

Re: Lets stop Asian hate - what can we do?

The aggression it self, sure. The reason behind the micro-aggression, not really. There's a million possible reasons why someone is being micro-aggressive.

Re: Lets stop Asian hate - what can we do?

The reason why you're getting flak for pushing this story is because not everybody is Daryl Davis. People have varying levels of interpersonal skills, tolerance, and racial trauma - somebody trying to play nice with a violent racist is just as likely to go horribly for them as it is to go well with...

Re: Would you have liked more female or feminine looking namekians?

Growing up, I kind of always wished there were female Namekians. Now, I guess I don't care as much, but it would still be neat.

Another cool idea they could've done is make U7 Namekians look male while U6 Namekians look female.

Re: Lets stop Asian hate - what can we do?

Not my point. Yes we still have the three branches of government; the problem is active attempts by various actors to attempt to work around these limitations. Welcome to human society. There's always actors somewhere working to bypass the rules in place. It's a practice as old as time. Everything ...
