  1. that being said, of course people have room to improve themselves. like if you did a dumb thing pre-2014 that was ignorant in a non-malevolent way then I don't really care, but that seems to be the demo that a lot of cancel culturinos cling to because they see morality as some prescriptive immutable thing as if the world hasn't been in a constant state of unlearning certain dynamics and biases

    • I'm not even sure some of these changes are "problems" and not more like "just an obvious place to maybe recast for a start," really?

    • Whoa, for some unknowable neurological reason, the phrase "Ted's boss" in the middle of a Cracked article on HIMYM triggered an intense craving for some taquitos...

        • The other closest thing wasn’t on my channel, it was on BrainstormAlex, but I basically drew a very in-poor-taste Steven Universe gemsona made to look like a racial caricature as an at-the-time topical jab at the “Concrete” character from the SU art book (she can’t read :()

          • I actually went back and looked at all of my cartoons with potentially racist content, and it looks like the only one that even comes close to qualifying is My Little Brony 2 because of the joke where the Pound Puppies are in a street gang

            • what's funny to me is, I feel like the first time I learned about blackface when I was around 5, I was immediately able to discern that it's not something that is okay to do. not that I didn't go through the process of learning/unlearning a lot of racist stuff in my lifetime, but that one just always seemed like kind of a no brainer to me. that being said I am surprised (though probably shouldn't be) at just how common it actually is, and how many people I've known who apparently always thought it was fine

              • I know that they're pulling an episode of Community for implied blackface, and without even reading into it I know the exact scene they're talking about and I sincerely do not believe that a single person with any stake in societal progression watched that scene and thought it was actually a problem

                • @tiff Similarly, I’m pretty sure pulling an episode of Golden Girls is not especially high on BlackLivesMatters’ priority list.

                • @mrmattimation I dunno how far exactly I'd go to defend these sorts of jokes but pretty much every example I can think of is pretty obviously a subversive criticism *of* blackface. Obviously I am not the person who can/should decide if that makes it more okay, but I feel like removing these scenes is stifling discussions of anti-racism if anything. Like just put the disclaimer in front like WB and Disney or whatever

                        • @mrmattimation I would prefer it for future reference if POC actors got to voice POC characters, especially in the current industry where they aren't getting the same treatment or opportunities as white people; but I absolutely agree that this current wave of networks removing TV episodes with instances of racism and actors conveniently regretting voicing POC roles all of a sudden is largely posturing in the absence of actual willingness to, you know, hire and support and pay POC. I also don't think it's a particularly far reach to suggest that companies are just pretending this is what activists are asking for as some sort of psyop, since it will most likely push the needle back in their favour (i.e. still not hiring, supporting and paying POC)

                          • I don’t really know where I’m going with this but that’s pretty in character for a Phil Hartman character

                            • His boyfriend’s voice is based on Phil Hartman’s voice so I have to do that one because I’m the only one who still knows who Phil Hartman was.

                              • Pros to just doing the voice myself: scenes with just Bud and Mo can be done in mere days. Cons: I voice his boyfriend so I might as well just go FrankerZ myself.

                                • That’s not to say I don’t think we should be more inclusive in our casting, I stand by that bit, we’re in the process of searching for a new voice for Mo on Swole Foods so that I can at least say we tried. So far only women are applying tho so I might have to end up doing it myself anyway.
