Japanese tend to think of Caucasians as being stereotypically blonde and light eyed, so they often apply those stereotypes to their media, to imitate the whole "western beauty standard" thing. Of course not all Americans are of European lineage with light hair and eyes, even if people of European descent still account for a chunk of the US population, that is just what the Japanese find to be beautiful. That is what they fetishize more, because blonde hair and blue eyes usually don't occur among naturalized Japanese unless they have some foreign blood and even then genetically the genes would be recessive and extremely unlikely to express themselves. Their portrayal of Americans, as blonde haired and blue eyed, usually European lineage, is what THEY, as Japanese people who may have never seen a foreigner in their life outside of TV, film, or printed / internet media, view as "exotic". Just like how some Americans view some Asian girls as being exotic. It all comes down to the fact that they're a predominantly racially homogenous country that loooves European features & beauty standards and often tries to emulate them.

So I just started watching "Gate"... and the USA president is blonde And I'm just absolutely dead.

This anime is made in 2015, right?? Do the animators not know the president is half Black?

They have probably never seen a black guy before. Probably think its a unicorn or something.

They never get us right we are suppose to be fat and lazy not thin and in shape. They should use this as a future reference:
