Jynx wasn't racist

Jynx didn't resemble a black woman, hell Popo didn't resemble a black man either

You want racism? Look no further than General Black

Dark skin (not black) and an over-emphasis on the lips. I bring this up because it was wrong to censor Jynx. The orginal Jynx/Popo look like a generic princess/genie at best

America doesn't care what Japan's excuse is. If it resembles something racist, they'll attack it to no end.

What was wrong with Officer Black? I happen to think RR Army is a wonderful equal opportunity organization.

"Jynx's design and humanoid appearance has been heavily criticized by the Western media, most notably by cultural critic Carole Boston Weatherford, who described Jynx as representing blackface after seeing the character's depiction in the anime. Due to complaints, Game Freak modified its appearance by changing the original color of its face from black to the current color, purple. "

America tries not to offend anyone, then ends up pissing off the whole world.
