All those creators out in Asia got a problem. For one they're drawing characters that look more white than anything else. It's one thing to not draw yourself but peep how some of them draw black ppl. The expressive eyes and colorful hair don't take away from what's clear as day.
I wouldn't even assume Piccolo as black. *cough*Mr. Popo*cough*
I watched the history on how they developed artistically and some of it is very ****** up. Overall though the excuse/reason is that's just there style. No big deal that Goku ends up cast a white guy to them in a Dragonball movie to them
Issues of race are very different.
Hollywood though, that's just what they do. Asian dudes never get the girl in the movies. I remember that thread about the movie 21 where the movie was based on a true story about Asian kids but of course the movie was majority white.
