You have to be delusional to think that most anime characters aren't white.

There's only a few shows, like Aku no Hana, that have characters that are actually drawn to have asian features.

He had very white skin, I live in Norway so I am used to white people, but ours is usually tinged with red, or pink.He had ashen gray, sort of cream-like skin. Pale, but not pasty, clear and brought out his strong facial features. I only saw him for a split second while getting off the bus, but this left a lasting impression on me.
I mean don't get me wrong, he was still a shortfag all the same, but with those kind of features I highly doubt that'll be much of an issue.

The whiteness of Euro-Aryans is a defect in itself. It's quite surprising that most people don't realize that whites came from India and Iran. Even hitler knew this, hence all the symbolism and terminology he lifted.

Except they're not stick figures, they're characters that include White features as part of their detail. That's like saying that if a dog drew a cat, it's a dog because a dog drew it.

Stupid anon. Obviously the japs are the cat here. And yes I am pretty sure the cat would be drawing another cat, even if it did turn out looking like a dog, because cats are narcissist assholes.
>>
It's not that they're drawn to be white, it's that they're drawn to have big eyes because that makes their faces more expressive (this is a common thing in western animation as well,) and they have crazy hair colors because everyone having the same hair color is boring and it's a way to make them stand out among background characters.

>>121651976
>they're characters that include White features as part of their detail.
So when the animators for the Simpsons drew all those yellow people that live in Springfield, does that not make Simpsons an accurate representation of white Americans, just because they "don't look like white people?"

>they're characters that include White features as part of their detail

Most of the time that isn't the case, main characters in anime have no recognizable facial features because it looks cuter and it's easier to animate. When they want a character to look like a particular race they give them some exaggerated features that generally look silly, which is why it's mostly used for minor characters.

For white people, they usually draw them whit a square jaw and a big nose.
>>

Just let the Japanese make their characters look any damn way they want.

That's what I like about anime. It's not that the characters look white, it's that the Japanese don't cave into political correctness and don't care or think about if the character will offend some one.

I think Death Parade is a good example. I think based of the hair and eyes Nona is obviously white and Kuro is asian. Almost all the other charachters besides the otaku kid and the old man look white to me too

What the fuck are you talking about. Iranian race descended directly from Proto Indo-Iranians who came to the Iranian plateau and settled there and in Central Asia cane from the Caucaus from the Andros peoples.

Even in Xenophon's own accords of his interactions with the Persians in the mid-5th century describes them and their kin like the Medes, Bactarians, and so on as "pale skinned and fair in complexion" while he describes Greeks and even himself as being swarthy, "olive-skinned and sun-kissed".

There have always been light skinned Iranians, the term Aryan was simply used as a term to describe all Iranian tribes. Hitler was just trying to legitimize his eugenic beliefs and racial superiority by claiming kinship with the Iranians because even the previous Shah, Reza Khan, and his son, were fairly light-skinned and pro-German.

Latins were a distinct racial/ethnic tribe from the Estrucans. Even other indigenous Italic peoples were separated and there wasn't much admixing, hence the Social War late in the Republic period prior to the transition to Principate/Imperial Rome.

Estrucans genetically and racially are a people isolate, even their language reflects this. Same with the Elamites who predate Iranians.

Because Japanese artists have always depicted their skin color as a basic, pale tone - a tannish white is the best, most universally accepted color of skin. They don't really even look white - white cartoon characters aren't typically that shade and 'white' skin is actually usually comparable to asian skin tones.

We get a lot more people who are really light skinned these days, and they're just particularly pale.
