This is a very interesting article, with a great video to shut these racist fools up...

Quote :
A discussion of why anime characters “look white,” arguing that it is in fact whites rather than Japanese who see them as white, has found its way back to Japan and prompted much debate amongst the Japanese themselves.

Racism happens on all sides, if you'll notice that part that is grayed out at 4:19 it says that "whites living in japan experience racism just like any minority in the world".

More to it, I think that both sides of the argument are correct in it's own way. We see ourselves in almost all things. One could draw a completely abstract form and people would find things to associate it with themselves.

Also, I think the argument comes from examples like this;

A highly regarded Kurosawa film, Seven Samurai, was adapted to an anime called Samurai 7. In this anime two of the character are clearly western, one of them being the lead character, and only two are clearly Japanese. Which in a cultural sense seems a bit odd, it would be akin to making Citizen Kane as a cartoon and drawn Charlie Kane as an Indian.
