is ang even asian? i mean its not specified. goku isnt even human, hes an alien sent here to destroy earth for freiza so um not asian kid. try harder ok?

First off, the characters in Avatar: The Last Airbender all live in a world clearly based on Asian cultures and mythologies. They’re also clearly coded as Asian.

Second, even if Goku is an alien he clearly looks Asian. And why should “he’s an alien” be an excuse to cast him as white, anyway?

Also, “try harder”? Seriously? “Hey, I pointed out that exactly two of OP’s examples might not count, so clearly they need to try harder.” Nice counter argument there, old sport. I’m sure they’ve completely rethought their whole life.

actually beyond his outfit hes not asia hell he was going to be a monkey but they decided not to go with that. hes not asian nor is he white. second the actor for ang wasnt white hes actually native so again wrong sorry but try even /harder/

What does what the character was originally going to be in concept have to do with anything? It wouldn’t make him automatically not Asian just because at one point of the development process he was meant to be a talking Buick.

As for Noah Ringer, if you look him up his ancestry is “English, Irish, Scottish, Welsh, and other German.” The kid has identified as “American Indian,” but that’s awfully vague and white people—particularly from Southern states—have a tendency to claim Native heritage when they don’t have any proof of it. When I was younger I used to say I was a little bit Cherokee. I later found out that might not be strictly true.

That doesn’t necessarily mean that Noah Ringer is a liar or misinformed, but I’d take it with a decent helping of salt.

Happy Birthday, Walter Potter!

Walter Potter (2 July 1835 – 21 May 1918) was a Victorian taxidermist most famous for his eccentric anthropomorphic taxidermy. He received fame and accolades for such lovely scenes as “The Kittens’ Wedding” (his final creation in 1890), and his Rabbit School. Potter first began exploring the recreation of nursery rhymes using preserved and costumed animals in 1854 at the age of 19, and completed his most famous work, “The Death and Burial of Cock Robin,” which included 96 species of British birds. 

With encouragement and support from his local community, Potter was able to earn a living and support his family at an Inn in Bramber, a small town in West Sussex. Locals commissioned Walter to preserve their pets and he relied on donations of dead animals to populate his fanciful scenes. The clothes were created by his neighbors and his daughter Minnie. 

Many of Potter’s works remained on display at the Bramber Inn, which was turned into a Museum during his life in order to house more than 10,000 specimens. The original Museum eventually closed in the 1970s and moved to Cornwall in 1984, before being sold and disbanded in 2003.

You say “eccentric anthropomorphic taxidermy” when you really mean “literally the best thing ever.”
