Journal History

I was disappointed at an animation commercial of Nissin.
It's because Naomi Osaka's skin in that footage was too light.
It cannot be helped even if it is said that this is whitewash.

But I also feel strange about the reports on this matter.
They regard this cause as discrimination consciousness of Japanese people.
Certainly, I can not deny it. But it's not all, I think.

In fact, in Japan around 1990, the wrong anti-racism movement brought about misunderstanding that drawing black people is discrimination.
And those who participated did not correct the wrong beliefs. Also in 2015, A musician who came back from America commented that "In the United States, non-black people will draw discrimination if they draw black people."
So even in the case of this commercial, many Japanese people are confused. They said, "If they drew her skin black, they should have been told that it is discrimination."
The situation is serious.

I do not know the reason why Nissin did whitewash.

But I wanted you to know the strange situation in Japan.
And in that situation we have drawn black and dark skin characters while worrying.

Please don't think that all Japanese believe that black skin is inferior.

And this strange situation will improve rapidly.

We will not have to worry about drawing black skin and dark skin.

Well.......I think that I can not explain well. And I can not explain well in Japanese.

P. S.  Congratulations Naomi-chan!
