i only knew 1. but that's because we became friends through other friends. we actually had a lot in common lol, i remember i made fun of him on his first day of school! xD
he was trying to be a playa, in my class lol. so a friend of mine were pretty. we didn't like how he was "playing" =P

but we became really good friends later on lol
anyway. i know at my high school there was a good amount of black otakus or whatever.. most of them either were hiding it or they just didn't talk about it because.. well, not every friend likes anime :P

heck, i didn't talk about anime when i was in high school lol
but other than those. on the net, by some weird coicidences i have ended up on black people's profiles who liked anime.

there was even a black girl that liked asian guys(like how asian girls liked white guys--can it be??! asian guys are going to take away black girls???!) xD

lol i kid i kid. and i should apologize since some people would probably be offended with my choice of words lol

oh and. around 8 on crunchy roll. around 20ish on the net. around 10ish in real life that i can assume. and 1 friend.

so. 49ish black people.. out of.. hmm.. i know 20 friends that like anime. about 1000 on the net.

49 black people for every 1020 anime watchers?
that's roughly around 14k out of 300k anime watchers lol

The problem is that many miniorites feel the need to be accepted by people from their own race. For some reason, many minorities feel more comfortable if they are "within the box". When they do that, they start seeking more people that are into the same thing you are. The reason why there arent any topics that ask "how many white people like anime?" is because when youre a majority, and you don't need to worry about race, finding someone with your likes isn't hard.

Luckily, I've never had that problem. Looking for acceptance and wanting to be accepted by my own race doesn't concern me (past circumstances taught me not to). The problem I do have is finding someone in my school or surrounding cities who isn't just into Naruto, Bleach, FMA, One Piece, and Inuyasha.

"You like anime huh? What's your fav?"
"Naruto"
"F***, bye."

It all gets old. Black, white, red, or yellow. ^_^

the 'colour' wording sounds a bit ridiculous e.g.'Yellow'? lol..wah?! it sounds like one is describing another as having jaundice.

i only know one black person who watches anime. AND it's so funny, I live in California and in a city surrounded by Asian people, and NONE of them watches anime. Growing up, I was the only one who watched anime, until i met two of my co-workers back then who watched anime. I also don't even know anybody else who watches drama too, until two weeks ago, my homeboy was talking about it and I asked if he have a CR account, and he does. So, yeah.
Not all Asians are into animes/dramas. I wish I had a friend who watches anime and dramas, so we can watch it together and hang out. i have a friend who watched anime but he's hundreds of miles away.
A lot of my Asian friends consider Animes "Cartoons" and that pisses me off, and at least my Black friend that watches Anime, acknowledges that factor.


EDIT: in my honest opinion, i think people who don't mention watching anime themselves are just embarassed to admit to their friends they watch it, because they might call them a little kid. If you have too much Pride to admit you watch anime, you should be ashamed of yourself. I watch anime and dramas and my husband watches animes and he's turning 25. We tell all of our friends we watch them and they make fun of us and say "oooh you're too old to be watching "cartoons," and hey, i still try to get them into watching animes. and one or two of them are slowing watching it since i introduced them to bleach. I know thuggish people who watches anime. so you'd be suprised there are many different type of people who watches anime.
A party girl who is addicted to anime and dramas. otaku

Well I've talked to them all and they've both posted here in this thread! :P, My cousin is half black and she watches anime, but there is an archetype that the stupid t.v advertises to the African American culture in America (duh) and anime does not fit into it...so very few when compared to us whites. Cuz there are not that many black nerdz... Just statistics. Some argue that blacks have a different mentallity than whites and so its more rare for them to get interested in nerdy stuff and knowledge... I think it's crap but that's a theory.


I agree that is total crap. The way you think depends on your personality, not your looks.
