Changing Jynx to purple was even worse then keeping it black

You are arguing that subtle stereotyping is worse than overt stereotyping?

That is pretty context dependent.

How about over exaggerating because you don't understand the myths and legends of another culture and demanding that they conform to your ideals?

Oh, and subtle stereotyping/racism/sexism/whatever is infinitely times worse than their overt versions. If they're overt about it you KNOW where they stand, if they're subtle about it that leaves a facade that they can hide behind. A vocal racist is better that a quiet bigot.

DBZ had a character called Mr. Popo. He was a genie type of character with black skin, large red lips, and large eyes. When they released DBZ Kai, which just redubbed the voices, HDed the thing up, and cut filler, they changed his skin to blue to avoid allegations of black face.

Only the kid-friendly versions (4kids, nick) of kai had him blue. Watch the uncut/dvd versions and watch blackface popo to your hearts content.
