This a recreate of a previous thread. The former thread was locked when the arguments got too hard to clear.

So, discuss the roles of black characters, particular ones you like, possible influence from Japanese/Asian society, ect.

Also, I use "black" to describe people descending from African culture. While some anime characters may look black, keep in mind that some of them might just be following the Japanese tan Ganguro style. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ganguro So before you classify an anime character as black, you might want to check their author-written bios first.

Lets keep the racism to a minimum please. = \ or I'll just lock this again. I'll be watching this thread.

discuss!

These are still two of the very few I know of in Anime. Bel from FMP 2nd Raid was, again, another small character.

Hm... I don't have much to add (I don't watch a lot of anime) but that less than 2% of Japan's legal residents are from foreign nations, and I think that their population is the most varied now that it's been. Not sure.
And even disregarding the legal status of people that live there, minorities are still rare, so even animes whose creators aren’t racist probably won’t represent the same racial make-up of some other countries.
I do, however think that the depictions of black characters can be quite insensitive.
