Why Cant Goku be White?

More than a few years back when FFVII first became the rage, I meet the white guy from Ohio, who was also a fan of the game series and we began to discuss how cool it would be to see FFVII on the big screen. And you guessed it, he named off some white actors that could play Cloud. I thought nothing of this, but at a pause I merely suggested that maybe a cool Japanese actor could play the role of Cloud. Wow, the initial look on this guys face, you thought I'd said I slept with his mother. "Cloud isn't Japanese", he chuckled. He pointed out that Clouds hair was blond and his skin was white. I was shocked, how the hell can someone play 80 hours of a game and not realize the obvious Asian influences. This guy had to be blind, or just stupid. I wanted to say, look at the back of the freaking box you idiot, this game is an import from Japan! Honestly how dense can a person be?

Well I never did convince this guy in the short time we meet that Manga artist have been using hair and skin color as devices in art for many years, it's not, as in American culture, there to define social class and privilege.

As some of you well know Square Soft has been moving away from the traditional manga art style to a more realistic depiction of their characters, thanks in large part the the big boost in technology. When Advent Children hit the big screen and Cloud was fully realized there was no doubt; his Asian features displayed proudly, I just wished I could see the look on that guys face as he realizes one of his favorite heroes was indeed, not white.

Back to the subject, The Great White Goku! I know why you think Guko is white, I really do, but I'm not going to tell ya. However, I think this quote may give you a better clue:

"I would love us to do something with Will Smith, but I don’t know that he’s Captain America. That would be a long shot. It would be a real leap to make Captain America black… then again, I don’t know. It might be a really smart thing. If Barack Obama becomes President who knows… suddenly a lot of our characters will be black!" - Stan Lee
