Yeah Dr Gero, I had forgotten him being black. I think Hercule Satan is very dark and could be black.
He is definitely dark brown in skin colour.

I think the depiction of Popo visually was very bad but he is portrayed as a loveable guy and in this way it isnt rashialist. But visually its as bad as Robertsons golly's on the jars of jam.

To be honest, I never seen him as a black guy (Because he not human) until I wiki it. But that was silly and should hnot even be a big of a deal. Banning Jinx was just dumb

Ok does it make me racist if I say this thread's topic is a bit racist?

Also I don't think Mr. Toriyama draws his "black" characters i n terms of being racist. To be fair who we deem "black people" in our country is out of norm in Japan so I thnk it could just be a miscommunication on his part. As for the Killa guy in the martial arts tourney I think he was just stereotyping stupid boxer types, the fact he's black could be just coincidence.

Yeah Mr. Popo is not black since he's not human.

And the Piccolo thing. You can't really base what you "think" his color should be based on mannerisms and such. Saying things like that implies you thinking only "black" people can have to cool badass mindset. Even though to me the later episodes depict Piccolo as a stereotype of action movie heroes. Plus he's a green alien so I think this moots the whole argument. Same goes for Cooler (the real Akira one), and Freeza. Any thoughts of what their race "should" be is pure speculation and really holds no proof considering they are aliens.

Thank you good night.

To recognise racial sterio types, negitive and positive, is a good thing. Knowledge is not racist. It can be a tool against racism.
There are indeed some racial stero types in DBZ.
This therad seems focused on recognising and chalanging, the inacuracys of the negitive ones, like the lips. and looking to see if their are better ones.

Even hitler in the series, thoght that gotenks and trunks going super sayian was a sign of airian superiority. The fact they were aliens then didnt matter in determining racial type. All he saw was the blue eyes and blond hair.

If its a theam in DBZ, theres nothing wrong with discussing and analizing it.
Theres also nothing wrong with disagreing.
As long as we remain respectful.

Discussing it doesnt have to mean you dont love DBZ either
