The first episode of Popeye was banned from television because it had a cardboard cut out that looked a lot like Mr. Popo.

Seriously I didnt know it was racist until Blue Popo. I mean Popo is an alien who doesn't even sound black.

And so what if it portrays a black guy stereotype? He is the GOD OF EARTH's right hand man. Popo is pretty much on top of the world, literally and figuratively.

racism is overrated imo.

you call a guy a moron cause you dont like him, then religion shouldnt matter.

Its just 4kids usual screwups.

im pretty sure they where the ones behind this.

^What's all this now?

>Popo
>not a black human
>refers to every other black person in Dragonball
Oh you guys. And look at the treatment of women. Classy. Dragonball was just more 'honest' than "Z".

Right hand man? Or perhaps, slave... >_>

It is what you make of it~

You know one day earthlings will go into space and find specifically Popo's kind of aline, and then we will paint them blue! Why? Because we dont want to offend ANYONE!?!?!

My only "problem" with Popo was he looked like a serious case of black-FACE.

Other than that I didn't care. Racism can be shoved up everyone's asses, and everyone who tries the racism-card NOW needs to get shot.

Not really comfortable with Mr. Popo's look, but what really I find offensive is the way black characters are depicted (usually having big, over-exaggerated, pink lips) in DBZ and other popular manga and anime. The only exception is Naruto: shippuden, where the black characters are drawn having normal lips like the other characters.
