Actually, Su isn't black. I don't even think Mihoshi is either...

I mean since when do black people (not being racist) have blonde and white hair? Well, no I shouldn't say that since I've seen black people with actual blonde hair before. That, and white people also don't have white hair for real either.

Wait, Mihoshi is a blonde right? It's been so long since I've seen Tenchi Muyo...

the japanese are obscenely racist, that's the main reason you don't see too many blacks in anime. they're obsessed with hip hop culture like the rest of the world, but i rarely saw blacks viewed as anything other comic releif on television when i was in japan (outside of sports and music). indians show up quite a bit in anime (like hare guu), as do overly tan skin tones with caucasian/asian features, but genuine blacks are pretty rare.

The closest thing to a major black character would be Dutch from Black Lagoon. Most others are bit characters. Bob from tenjou tenge was black, but if you look he was given very caucasian facial features.

I can agree that tousen is black but not youruchi since her face doesn't remind me of a black one, more like an indish one (not racist, I'm black too).
It's true though that there are very few black anime characters but one piece have a decent (it's still a minority) amount of black people, but the only guy that the main pretagonist in one piece have never been able to beat in a fight and is considered to be one of it's world strongest character is black.

I agree. I would love to see a more diverse/respectful palette of characters in Anime/ Shows/Cartoons/Media in General. Pervy busty blond schoolgirl with weapons worship is not my idea of good storytelling or quality animation. I may be alone here.
On the other hand, it's not really up to the Japanese to include/create content that doesn't reflect their desires. If pervy/chibi/typecast/white/asian characters is all were going to see for the most part as the common link in anime overall, then It's on (us_all) to change that. Though making it heard that were fed up, grown up and ready for real characters is ok too. my two cents , thanks :-)
