How racist would it be if I just assumed because you're Asian you must watch anime?

Like when I meet an Asian and thought 'they must love and watch anime' without knowing a thing about them personally.

How ow racist is that?

  • Just as racist as the people that believe...

    All white people racist

    White people can't dance.

    All black people are ghetto.

    All black people love fried chicken and watermelon.

    All Muslims are terrorist.

    And all Asians are geniuses... They're just stereotypes.

  • It's not really racist. It's just a stereotype. Though I would associate Anime/Manga more with Japanese since if you look up those words they mean.

    an·i·meˈanəˌmā/ noun-a style of Japanese film and television animation, typically aimed at adults as well as children.

    man·gaˈmaNGɡə/ noun-a style of Japanese comic books and graphic novels, typically aimed at adults as well as children.

    That's like people thinking if your from the USA your over weight. That does have truth to it since there are a good bit of over weight people here compared to other countries. Doesn't mean everyone is but a big part of the people here are.

  • Why does everything has to be called racist tbh? Like if someone said 'you're a white 18byear old girl, you must love Starbucks' and then I say 'no, I don't love it. Too expensive.' And then he/she gets over it. It's not a negative assumption so I it might be racist, but not negative racist.

  • No... that's not racist. I did grow up watching anime. But I grew out of it.

    What I found rude is that every white person who isn't familiar with Asian culture has to ask me personally if I'm religious or if I'm a buddhist...

  • Well there is some truth there. A lot of Asians do watch anime but you shouldn't assume that everyone does. :)

  • It's not racist.

    You're making an assumption that based on someone's geographical location and therefore cultural norms, they would be more likely to do something created by the people who are from that geographical location.

    It's just sound logic.

  • I suppose it's kinda racist but there's a pretty high chance that it's true, if they were born and/or raised in asia (as opposed to Asian parents giving birth in the west).
