F***, Jynx not getting a Evo is because she's labeled a racist stereotype.

^Written by Carole Boston Weatherford, the woman responsible for the whole censoring of Jynx.

Reading the last paragraph:

Will African-American parents continue to cough up hard-earned dollars for games and trading cards featuring a monstrously racist image? Will Jynx deal Pokémon's last hand in the black community? Or will the blonde-haired, black-faced, monster evolve into an ebony princess? Stay "tooned."

Sounds to me like that line could be interpreted to mean "Evolve into a ever more racist character". May it be misinterpreted or not.

People at the works of Pokemon probably see that a Evo will only spark more attention, and considering how the woman even mentioned Jynx evolving, it might just be the reason for her lack of a evolution along with her trio members Magmar and Electabuzz.

The only thing she's doing is giving us even more stereotypes on what a black person is like.

Except Jynx isn't even based on black face. She's based on Yama Uba and the Yamamba movement.

I wonder if Slowpoke and Slowbro will ever be considered offensive to handicapped people like people accused Jynx of being offensive to black people?

Carole sucks.. but I wouldn't object to an "ebony princess" evolution of Jynx.
She seems to want Jynx to evolve into something that's less of a racial stereotype.

... Though after reading this article, I kind of hope Jynx gets another stereotype-face BBW evolution, and I hope she has to hold "Friend Chicken" and learn the move "Thief" to evolve, just to annoy people that dwell on racism too much. XD
