Anime, Bored, and Boxing: I hadn't seen any English reports on this but its too good not to So right now there are pretty crazy right-wing nationalist sexists in Japan. They're dressing up in WWIl military outfits, they're standing outside of Korean schools (in Japan) shouting that Koreans should be killed, and just generally being horrible human beings. For reasons unknown, the Japanese police haven't done anything to stop them, and when people get physical with the right-wingers and a fight breaks out, it's not the right-wing people who get punished. Enter: the Yakuza Yakuza, for those who don't know, is the name for the world of Japanese gangs, commonly known for being covered in tattoos. A few retired yakuza members (most of whom are notoriously and vocally conservative) got tired of this extreme right wing BS. They believe that picking on people who are weaker than you, like the children at the Korean schools or refugees, is embarrassing, and not something to be proud of. They want these right wingers to man up (the group is almost entirely men) These old retired yakuzas start showing up at the right wing protests and intimidate the hell out of these guys. When they feel like it, they'll use physical force too. The police don't mess with the yakuza so these right wing protesters become human punching bags. All their talk of killing Koreans or their superiority to just about everyone flies out the window when these gangsters roll up. It started with only one or two yakuza who were bored and fed up, but more and more started to come. They started training in boxing and street fighting, and wouldn't you know it... the number of right wing protesters got less and less. Then, people of other walks of life joined in too. With the yakuza throwing the police off professors could join by writing about the issues profusely. Suddenly a ton of otakus joined too, using their art and community to protest. They'd show up in droves and stand behind the muscle (yakuza) and make a ton of noise. They literally staged an "otakus against racists" rally TAKU AGAINST Slowly, the protests have seen the right wing attendance drop more and more and I am living for these "manly men" being trashed by retired gangsters and fans of Love Live. In conclusion First, I'd like the extreme right wing to gtfo Second, l'd like a manga, then an anime, about these yakuza who befriended professors and otakus to fight neo-nazis. K? cool. 50,371 notes お兄ちゃん This is such a good movement

Of course it wouldn’t be their children sent to do the fighting so who gives a fuck. Must be so disappointing to not get your big war you wanted so fucking bad. </p> <p><br/></p> <p>I truly hope this ushers in unification and the poor NK’s who have been crushed under the yoke of socialism can find a new life in all of this.

The reason people are falling for this is that Asian characters really do get played by white actors all the time. This really isn’t an unrealistic headline and this joke is in poor taste.</p> </blockquote><p>Fuck you op for preying on the very real and valid fears of marginalized people for a stupid ass joke that ain’t even funny. Was it worth it you fucker?? Did you like scaring ppl who are afraid that their history, their childhoods, their own identities would be bastardized just like it has been countless times before? Cheap shot op. Dirt cheap. Also fuck the ppl on this who are giving ppl a hard time for being tricked. Like it’s not the most believable thing in the world that Disney would cast white ppl in non-white roles. </p></blockquote> <p>There is no dofference between a white person getting the role and the two that were passed up in this fake post. </p><p>The actors are korean. The character is chinese. A white American and a Korean American have the same lack of chinese culture and the same access to Chinese history books to study for the role. The Korean American actors would be acting in the same way the white ones would. So if it is offensive or wrong to cast a white person, you should have been just as angry that Koreans would have been cast. By your response, you clearly didnt. </p><p> You are so caught up in separating everyone in white and non white categories, that you have essentially made asians interchangable with each other, which is far more racist than some casting for a random movie. </p></blockquote> <p>They are interchangeable in looks in the same way that all White people are or all black people are. You couldn’t tell wether someone was from Korea or China in the same way you couldn’t tell someone from the UK or Russia.</p></blockquote> <p>Actually I pretty much can tell Koreans from Chinese people. Same with Japanese. There are distinctions you get used to after a while.</p><p>But getting this worked up over casting, particularly a fake casting announcement is looney tunes.</p>
