I hated her so much as a child. I ahtes almost all black characters. And that was weird, since there's no black people in my country, i used to call them "filler blacks" before learning the word "token black".

You're why we have "blatant cases of affirmative action," as OP put it. Though I can't stand to be too negative about it when I see attitudes like yours.
>>
>>78212052
>That's a strange screencap of Susie there

Might be due to the fact of it being a picture of a completely different character in a completely unrelated show owned by a completely separate company.

Idiot.
>>
>>78212133
Because as everyone knows, black people totally don;t have hair like that in real life, amirite?
>>
>>78212952
Our brains are hardwired by evolution to naturally see the Other as a rival for resources. The more alien someone is, the easier and more automatic that scapegoating.

If you grow up without any blacks in your country, it's easy to believe it when someone mentions offhand that they're lazy and stupid, and you just never bother to confirm/refute the belief.

She was the loli version of those black Mammys from like Tom and Jerry cartoons. Obviously they can't bring a faceless black Mammy on the show as her mentor, so she's just kind of there.

Something about having to make royalty payments to Tony Isabella every time they use Black Lightning.

That's why we've gotten so many knock-offs over the years: Black Vulcan, Juice, Soul Power. All to avoid having to pay royalties to the creator.

Difference from printed ink to digital coloring. They were probably still using the same color, but it displays differently when switched to digital, since real color is based on RBY, whereas digital color is based on CMYK.

Or something like that, I'm not an artist.

Cyborg was never breakout popular on TT. He was liked, sure, but he wasn't "holy dicks, it's a Cyborg episode!"
>>
>>78212971
He said almost all black characters, not black people. Most black characters suck, because being black is written as their primary character trait.
>>
>>78214548
He was the least popular of the five by a significant margin.

>>78213059

Better hair like that, than the nasty treated shit a ton of black women get.
>>
>>78214528
It's the other way around, but yeah. Digital (TV, computers, shit that goes through a light to display itself, etc.) is RGB, and CMYK is regular printed shit like comic books, prints, and animation cels.

No, she was the loli version of "So White" from COAL BLACK AND DE SEBBEN DWARFS (see pic related above), who was an actual Looney Tunes character and a cult classic when Tiny Toons was in production.
Same reason why they couldn't bring her mentor onstage, though.
Some Tiny Toons staff have denied the inspiration but it's obvious, even the hairdo is the same.

The question's not your opinion, Anon. It's a popularity contest, and Cyborg was at the bottom. Just checking a few sites:

Google for '[character] Teen Titans':
>Robin 2,190,000
>Raven 1,490,000
>Starfire 1,220,000
>Beast Boy 884,000
>Cyborg 780,000

Deviantart:
>Raven 47,999
>Robin 28,216
>Starfire 27,388
>Beast Boy 19,419
>Cyborg 12,353
>

FFN:
>Raven 15.1K
>Robin 10.8K
>Beast Boy 9.7K
>Starfire 6K
>Cyborg 899

Youtube:
>Robin 160,000
>Raven 132,000
>Starfire 85,400
>Beast Boy 80,200
>Cyborg 64,700

One or two of those cases can be dismissed as a certain portion of a site having aberrant taste, but when four of the biggest sites around, despite varying somewhat on all the other members, consistently put Cyborg on the bottom, it's probably time to accept that Cyborg fans are just uncommon. Doesn't mean he's bad, mind. Being unpopular and being bad are distantly not the same thing.
>>
>>78215491
I don't think anyone actually remembered that shit until recently.

I think she was just a black character they threw in.

He also thinks Ben Carson is the greatest mind of the 21st century so I think I've just learned to take this stuff with a grain of salt, but I do wonder if there's any precedent for this

>>78214607
standards and practices, women can't be shaded because it would show off their curves, which is a no-no, a shadow under the boob is too provocative for young children.
>>
>>78218320
Checking it... 906 of Slade fics involve Robin, 230 of those are romance fics, and 129 are mature romance fics that presumably involve Slade shoving his ten-inch scarred cock into Robin's tight butthole.
>>
>>78218064
>not mexico
You just started acknowledging black Mexicans like yesterday. Mexicans and all other "Latin" people are the most color stuck in the world. You shit on your own dark skinned people and value the lighter members of your race highly. That's why you mostly see lighter skinned Mexicans on Mexican TV and across South America. You treat your dark skinned people lower than dirt.

Racism is brushed under the rug in a lot of places. Brazil is extremely famous for this. They say they don't have a race problem while ignoring it. Asian countries are like that too.

and this is why there can never be a true trans character.

It either ends up being a off handed trait that is only mentioned once making the trait pointless or it becomes the characters only trait and you will never please anyone.

Even as a kid I thought the character dynamics in cartoons were sometimes forced (the cool boy, the asian one, the black one), but I'm not sure you're not just a plain old racist, no matter how much you try and make it sound like it's the "filler"/"token" part you hate.

>>78212971

This thread reminds me that I'm terrified of black people because I live in a rural canadian shithole with barely any black people. Or people in general.

But what terrifies me is that I'll turn out to be racist. Black people look different than white people what if somehow I notice it and stare or some shit. It terrifies me.

>Black people look different than white people what if somehow I notice it and stare or some shit. It terrifies me.

That's not what makes you racist. Strong disapproval of someone looking like this is what makes your racist.

The guy up top isn't racist because he notices blacks look different, he's racist because he blatantly said he hates them for this.
>>
>>78220134
>what terrifies me is that I'll turn out to be racist.

You can't turn out to be a racist. Racism is an ideology, not a disease or quirk. What you describe seems more like natural xenophobia.
>>
>>78220109

Ratifying people exist is still a step of from pretending everybody is, for instance, white.

Remember that one black character from 'Friends'?
>>
>>78216670
You got triggered there, anon?
>>
>>78220324
I disagree. I would rather only have characters from my ethnic group being there for a reason. If they are gonna make one just to check a box better not even make one.

I believe in freedom of creation. If there is no reason to have a black guy, a Mexican and a native american in freaking ancient China don't put them there just to acknowledge they exist! This is stupid!

Race alone shouldn't be a factor for the creation of a character.
>>
>>78218064
Nope, there's definitely racism in Mexico in some parts towards the indigenous people.
>>
The Spanish word for black is negro so yeah.......
