    I don't see it lol
    Just going by looks, sure, it's rough. Need to factor in other things like how he speaks, his nickname as a cop, how he dressed (back in the day), fondness for jazz, and leaving the white bitch out to dry. Probably some other things I'm forgetting, too.

    If Jet is black then I don't know what colour even is.

    So, forget what a person looks like, it's their *mannerisms* that should tell us what a person's race is? Isn't that the very definition of being racist? He's clearly not black but "talks like a black person", likes "black person things", and is called names black people are called. Ok then.

    Now, now, I didn't say he ate watermelons, too.

    Anyway, feel free to try and jump on me for ing or whatever, but I'm also trying to view it from the JP perspective of the 90's.

    Saying it's not uncommon for fiction to cherrypick stereotypes, really. Especially anime. D:

    What?

    Next you are going to tell me that Goku Black is considered a black character?


    Also jet being called black dog had to do with the led zep song anyway iirc.

    I don't know the rules anymore. I mean a lot of stereotypes have a fair amount of truth to them but pointing it out always seemed racist. Also I haven't seen a jp onry shout in forever

    I also realise that that doesn't matter if the character is still clearly not black.

    No, but I wouldn't be upset if they cast a black guy for jet.
