>>113636728>Possibly. That's a real consequence of authors coding characters or groups in intentionally negative or irresponsible ways. Coding isn't inherently good or bad, it's just another possible layer to the text.
Oh I see, so if by chance you sound racist you can just blame the author for it
There are 2 problems right of the bat here>1. You assume this "coding" is done intentionally and not some meme you've made up. I can assure you that Toriyama didn't purposely made Piccolo act black(basing on stereotypes of course, the only way to say someone acts as a certain group of people), just as eventhough Kojima likes yaoi that just the way she likes to draw men, she didn't design Alucard to look bisexual>2. I call bullshit on that, if some buzzfeed writer wanted to make an article abou LotR orcs being "x minority" coded they would call it an racist allegory like normal people would. This coding bullshit is only used for thing people want to claim for themselves
