Tactless Tactics by Inyuo Tactless Tactics by Inyuo
Hooray, Final Fantasy, who would have thunk?

Okay, this probably needs an explanation:
When the game first lets you play as Sazh after the Paradigm Shifts ('battle formations') tutorial, a new one pops up called 'Diversity'. Basically I saw the connection between 'the only non-white character' and 'diversity' and thought "Harrr its a joke!"

To tell the truth this comic was just an excuse to show that I am playing FF13. And still here and maybe submitting sometimes.

EDIT: Holy smokes, over 1500 favs in a day! T-thanks, you guys!

"Sazh has left your party" made me laugh so hard.

So, when was the last time YOU started laughing so hard you weren't actually laughing but heaving for breath aimlessly and asphyxiating for about 5 solid minutes?

It's hard out here for a [minority character that usually doubles as a token in most media].

As a black person I appreciate this strip.

Alternative comment: simply LOL.

I burst out laughing on my first play through of that game and this popped up! Reminds me of when I was giving my opinion to some friends and said "Well I might be the minority in thinking this but- *cue laughter* in more than one way, oh shut up you guys!" XD But I agree, I have no idea why so many people think that Japanese anime and video game characters are White unless they look exactly like what that person thinks is how someone that is Japanese is supposed to look. Like why on Earth are you arrogant enough to think that an entire nation of people where White people are the minority there is using White as the default for all of their characters instead of oh I don't know, their own ethnicity? I kinda see it as playing around with the characters looks; like obviously people don't have naturally pink hair but I don't see anyone going "Her hair is pink. Ah, must not be human then" :/

Considering that most protagonists in the entertainment industry are white straight males, diversity is almost non existent. It's a problem really.

Someone pointed out a while back that people always specify when it's a black person.  I caught myself doing it the other day, and decided to think on it; why do I specify when it's a black person?

Because I'm white.  And naturally, unless someone told me a third party's race in a conversation, I would assume they were white.  I will also go so far as to assume that black people are much the same way, and when it's a white person (or hispanic, asian, etc.) that they're referring to (when the person isn't present/ is not familiar to whoever they're talking to), they will likely do the same and specify.  Ah, humans.  What a species.  T_T

And the same way with gender, and other stamps we put on each other's. Well well. Racism is natural, it comes from the survival aspect of being afraid of the new, and categorising everything, dangerous and none dangerous species and so on... and noone is really spared from racism. "Stupid blondes" and so on. The best way to counter the racism in youf mibd is to be logical and objective. And to spread the love :D

Always love!!  But it's really easy for me to comprehend someone's psychology based on their background~  Whether or not it affects my opinion of them, it helps streamline my expectations of their reactions~  (it also prevents me from being surprised, which is convenient?  XDD )

I hate these kind of people, honestly. The one's who get offended just because you acknowledge that they are whatever race they are. It seems like they WANT to be offended.

No one wants to be offended. Personally I just don't like it if someone has to point out the fact that I am of a different race in the group. It kind of makes me feel like I'm only there for the purpose of making the group more "diverse" meaning I really have no other reason for being there besides that. It gives a sense of you aren't all that useful and no one really cares. Idk that's just my feeling on the matter.

I really don't identify with either of my races and like to think of myself as a person rather than Black or White. So I don't like it when people insist on identifying me as such.
