Racism & Anti-Blackness In The Anime: Carole & Tuesday

Today I'm writing about Carole & Tuesday, one of the most interesting anime that I've seen in a while. It's Japanese creators try (and fail) to add their two cents to the serious conversations around race, xenophobia, immigration, and class. The worst thing about this failure is that they had a good chance to leave a positive impact on Black viewers that they reached with just the sheer number of Black (or rather, brown-skinned) characters they decided to draw into the anime. I, for one, would have been happier with lots of plain representation alone.
