Default It´s Sad

Pokémons are trained. Who is mostly trained by who? The lesser being is mostly trained by the smarter being. And now, to my conclusion...

Pokémon is one, racistic mess sometimes. Yes, i love Pokémon and is a fan, and that´s why i can´t stand this... Do you ever see a black Pokémon trainer? No. But you see Jynx, a obvious parody of black people. And guess what? She is a Pokémon.

Pokémon secretly downgrades blacks, and i think that is a shame.

No it doesn't, Brock's race has been debated, but I have seen a black trainer with purple hair one time, and how do you know Jynx is a parody of black people? It could be based on a performer in history in Asia.

Saying that means you're sayinfg it downgrades at least 10 races cause they don't have a trainer that color.

If no black people live in Japan what is the point to put any black trainers on the show, except to shut u up.

Pokemon isn't racist, I'm not gonna debate if a few people working for pokemon are though

I know you have your opinion, but there are black trainers >> just not on the Anime

I respect your opinion. And you have a good point, but there has to be lots of black trainers.

Of course, there dont need be black trainers as there is no black people in japan...
But did they NEED to make Jynx, a parody of black people? They shows blacks like slaves that way! White trainers, black Pokemons!

So...the Japanese can't create anything without being labeled as racist?

Mr. Mime looks like a mime/clown,so they potray mimes/clowns as slaves?

That was a Pokemon made in 1995, people weren't as smart as now, they changed it to purple, the old jynx is hardly shown anymore...

Pokemon are like pets. One of my friends is white, and he has a Black Labrador Retriever. Does that make him racist?

Thats just even worse. Later, they decided that blacks werent even good enough to be a POKEMON, and they changed it into purple! What a world we live in...

And Mr. Mime is a clown/mime. Which means he has paint on his face. He could possibly be a black, too,

Pokemon are Pokemon, there are 493+ differant races, no pokemon races called 'black' or 'African american' or 'african'

They changed it because they would've gotten there butts sued off if they didn't chnage it.

I am sorry, but japan is known for having some degree of hate towards black people.

Where are you getting this from? Jynx is classified as human-like, but does it say ANYWHERE that Jynx is an African-American? No.

Who says that? Its up to debate if they did it because they didnt felt black people were good enough to be Pokemons or if they could get sued.
