  • Thank you so much for making this video. I know you enjoy making sarcastic videos, which are fantastic, but I always find your (more) serious videos to be so very heartwarming and oh so beautifully worded. It's amazing to see someone who speaks so passionately and who gives thought to what they watch, who draws their own conclusions and has an open mind about any possible lessons that anime (or other media) may try to bring to the audience's attention. Personally, I have always felt that the core of my system of values and beliefs have been shaped thanks to the influences from anime and video games. At the same time, practically all of my family and most of my friends didn't care about anime one bit and at home I would always hear that I should ''grow up from watching that nonsense'' and how immature I am to even like it, ''even when you are such a mature girl in other aspects, how is it possible?''. Of course, no one even attempted to actually watch even one episode of anything. Because it's animated, it MUST be immature and without value - how damaging is such viewpoint? Ironically, I would find most TV shows and movies that my family liked to be rather lackluster and falling flat of presenting emotiones and lessons that would truly resonate within my core, although I try to keep an open mind and once in a while there are movies I find to be absolutely amazing. To each their own. Today, I'm all grown up and I find myslef much less concerned about getting approval from others or about sharing my passion and excitement, even though it still hurts a bit to be shot down for what I prefer to watch - but, on the other hand, I find myself thinking about how much nicer the world would be if people weren't scoffed at for liking what they like, for enjoying different things, for having different preferences AND how much nicer it would be if everyone made an attempt to understand the other side of the coin, too. It's such a miniuscule thing in comparison to the video's subject, but I think it's a bit similar, too. Skin color, race or out hobbies, passions, things that make us different - how kind it would be if we always tried to understand the other person, no matter how much different from us, and even if we didn't enjoy the same things, we can still find the common language and see how many similarities we do actually share. And perhaps there could be a lot we could learn from that other person, too, as they could from us, by just keeping an open mind and making a genuine attempt to get to know the other person and understand who they are. Meowth was very right, indeed. Thank you for the video. (And it's my 2nd time typing the whole comment, as I have misclicked and deleted my previous one before I could post it - thank you if anyone read it to the very end. Have a lovely day.)

  • Tribalism is the real problem. One group that share a trait with each other and distrust, fear, hate, or are jealous of a different group of people that have a shared trait. Sport fans and nerds that argue which franchise/movie/characters are better are low level examples of this, and violent racial supremacist are on the high end of this. The real problem is because of the way Humanity has been living potentially over the past 100,000-500,000 years. This tribalism is believed to be an innate human trait. That helped us survive a long, long time. Now just because things are largely peaceful in many parts of the world people are expected to get along. I don't know how many people believe in genetically inherited memories, but if that's true it not going to be easy to overcome humanity's tribalistic nature. Philosophy is fun.

  • Why is racism a thing, where does it originate from? I think it is a very primitive survival mechanism from times of prehistory, where people lived in tribes and struggled to live another day, therefore they detached themselves from viewing the people from other tribes as humans, to avoid psychological trauma that came with inhumane acts done to take over their resources and survive. Basically it is a thing because there is always fight for resources, and people cope with potential trauma from murder et.c. this way. The worse are living conditions for a group of people, the more will it appear, as can be seen in nazi Germany, where the society was in a very bad situation, which propelled Hitler's ideas. That's my take on the origin of racism.

  • Love the video but... i would classify it as prejudice in general rather than racism, alot of the examples are more related to classism which yes sometimes people associate race with class but they are two seperate entities in entirety. tbh most people have somewhat of it in them they just ignore it ik as a fact some people just scare me by how they look, also ppl with boomboxes scare me no clue why. its irrational but the loud noises just kinda make me nervous and make me look at me feet. i didn't used to be afraid of anything but all of a sudden i am afraid of like everything. prejudice is a problem that can never be solved, there are always people who rather than ignore that fear and try to interact and know people will get angry and mean because of it, hatred begets hatred and the cycle continues. The problem is all guaranteed solutions lead to things worse than what we currently have and would involve a world like 1984... sorry if i went too far but i do find the subject interesting because so many people think its something to be fixed but its not really fixable without literally brainwashing. at best id actually say to just acknowledge that prejudice is a part of everyone and that we just need to look past it.(as in everyone looking past their own prejudices). (it'll never happen tho cuz toxicity always exists)

  • 35:15 Actually, there is this deeply ingrained concept of an "in group" and "out group" that everyone seems to have. It can be as small as acting very different around friends and family (or "in group") than when with strangers (or "out group") who you may act cold to (you know, if you're me and hate people) or it can be to the extreme of going full Hitler. Never go full Hitler. These concepts have been throughout history to varying degrees and is the underlying cause of prejudice and racism. The idea that "i can treat these people differently because they're not apart of my in group, they're not one of us". This whole "in group" and "out group" concept is actually something I learned from learning Japanese and about Norse culture. My sensei taught us about the groups when explaining how to use different levels of formality. With Norse, they literally have words for "in group" and "out group" and their whole lifestyle was built around the concept - which explains why they had vikings. This then had me thinking about all other cultures, who have had their own racism/prejudice and/or slavery to deal with at some point in time. It was all the same root cause.

  • Code geass is sooo legit story wise, and on the opposite side of what you talked about, leluche acts on feelings of vengeance, not facts, he is "the protagonist" only in the sense that he is opposed to Britania's policies, and there are many points at which negotiations could have been made, where innocent people did not have to die, but he plows ahead anyways because his revenge is more important to him than justice, peace, and equality. He repeatedly manipulates people who in many ways did nothing wrong in general or to him or to his race. His plan is self justified evil. Kind of written to be a perfect opposition to the king, raising the excellent point, who in real life is 100 percent right about everything? Who should you side with when everyone is wrong about something?

  • I think you're misconstruing racism as prejudice and discrimination itself. Racism is merely one form of discrimination and prejudice. Some of your examples are not racism, but other forms of discrimination and prejudice. An important part of unraveling a particular instance of prejudice and discrimination is understanding what it is centered around, its history, and its context. Equating prejudice and discrimination in general to just racism is overly simplifying the complexity and scope of what a particular instance of discrimination and prejudice can encompass. Racism is specially discrimination and prejudice on the basis of what race a person is. Where one is born, what family name one is born with, one's financial status, what nation one is born from; these are all different from racism despite also being instances of prejudice and discrimination. There are many, many things that can be met with discrimination and prejudice beyond just race. It's important to understand that the fundamental issue with discrimination and prejudice is that it does not allow the opportunity for an individual to make their self known in who one is as a person. It's essentially guilt by association; judgement without a chance for one to show _who_ one is despite what one is in terms of labels associated with one, be it by choice or otherwise. You mention immutable characteristics, which I understand the argument of unfairness associated with that, being judged for something that is unchangeable is unfair, but I don't actually believe that is the core issue with prejudice and discrimination. I believe it is unfair to judge someone beyond just when it is their immutable characteristics that one is being judged by. Faulty, unfair, and/or selfish reasoning is ultimately at fault. For example, if one has a bad experience with someone from a particular town, it would be faulty to assume all people from that town are like that one person you experienced. It is assuming too much about so many from so little. It would be unfair towards the others in that town. It also is selfish to put one's security on such a pedestal that one would be willing to be unfair and incorrect about that presumption. Perhaps you live in an environment where everyone around you believes those with blond hair are evil. The temptation would be to take in this prejudice and discrimination to fit in with those around you. It is faulty to believe something without evidence or argument, but instead do so just because it's popular to believe it. It is unfair towards those with blond hair to be denied their individuality and chance to prove who they are on an individual basis. It is selfish to indulge in that belief at said people's expense due to the security and comfort it brings to be accepted and unthreatened by those around you who believe it. There are many more examples I could give, but the point is ultimately that the fault lies in the logic itself. I suppose where things may get more grey is when there is a massive display of data behind prejudice. If a statistic showed that 98% of people out of a large sample size of a certain look and/or association were violent and dangerous, and the data was convincing, an argument can be made that the perceived risk to one's self or others justifies that prejudice. I understand this argument. My counter would be though to have reasonable caution instead of full on prejudice; be ready to react if that caution proves true while taking measures to protect one's self that doesn't lead one to initiating a conflict their self. If possible, it is still ideal to try to learn who those of the supposed association and or look in question are on an individual basis. I feel that this would only start to become necessary in an extreme, non-civil circumstance though. One of the most extreme circumstances is when you know a group, be it a gang, army, or some sort of uniformed /pseudo-uniformed group in actively engaging in violence against you or others. As the situation becomes more extreme, the less one is able to safely judge others on an individual basis, and thus, more extreme actions because ever more justified. All the more reason to try to avoid such extreme circumstances if at all possible.

    iplaygamesziplaygameszMåned siden
  • I think you missed an amazing anime that tackles racism on a much more personal level - Kimetsu no Yaiba. An interesting thing about racism is that people seem to have a tendency to disassociate their personal selves from what's seen as "racist" - from SJWs to actual racist people. This refusal to acknowledge racism as a objective topic - to recognize prejudice/racism as practiced by other people and prejudice/racism as it exists within (whether towards other people or internally) - is one of the things that makes racism so enduring and pervasive. IMO you hit the nail on the head with several of the points you made in the video - you *shouldn't* feel compelled to join protests just so you can show society that you're not racist. You *shouldn't* try to mosey up to anyone just to show other people that you're pro-diversity. I think on some level that actually defeats the purpose. You SHOULD, however, try to reflect on why you'd think any other human being could be inferior just because they look different. Just because their lineage comes from a different latitude. Just because their body works a bit differently. Because in the end, they're still people. You SHOULD see color. You SHOULD celebrate the fact that different colors exist. You SHOULD NOT use that to justify treating someone differently when it comes to something like academics or applying for a job, but you SHOULD know that someone with curly hair will need different types of hair care products or that someone with fairer skin will get sunburns more easily. In the end, fighting racism is as much (and I'd argue, much more significantly) a personal journey. In the world of Kimetsu no Yaiba, Tanjiro exists as a hero who fights demons and even joins a society that aims to exterminate demons once and for all. But his motivations for doing so are very personal - he's doing it because he wants to find some way to save Nezuko, and he's doing it because he wants to stop the suffering of other people AND demons. His resolve allows him to do what needs to be done, and yet also allows him to find enough common ground with demons to show them kindness. Tanjiro's spark is inspiring - in the end it's not so much about fighting racism by *demonizing* it and people who practice it, it's about finding common ground with people and showing other people that that common ground exists (while remaining open to the possibility that some people just lack the capacity for change). In Kimetsu no Yaiba, for example, the hashira start out as a group of hardcore demon-haters but through the actions of Tanjiro/Nezuko they are able to start to re-examine their views - always a good first step, though some were ultimately unable to stumble beyond that. Demons are able to reflect on their various situations, and one way or another they are given the opportunity to do something about it (and some just keep on being their happy psychotic selves). It's refreshingly realistic. Altogether it's an amazing story about how hatred/irrationality exist as a sort of self-sustaining feedback loop and no amount of additional hatred/irrationality is going to fix that. Hating demons, in fact, only seems to make things worse. For the cycle to end people have to step up and confront their demons - and turns out doing that could be as simple as finding common ground with other people. Because so many things could have gone horribly wrong in that show if the antagonists were actually inhuman enough to be unable feel things like anger, regret, jealousy, despair or even apathy.
