On the whole "Samurai Jack whitewashing" controversy
Yes, his skin is just a bit lighter, but let’s be honest here.
They never tried to interpret him as any race other than Japanese. Jack being a few shades different than his original doesn’t change anything.
Is it kinda confusing how in the flashback to his younger days in season 5 episode three has him with the same skin tone as Jack now?
Especially when in another flashback two
episodes earlier, they showed him in his original skin tone.
But is it racist?
No, because, again.
His Japanese Identity is not erased, him being a few shades different in skin color doesn’t change that.
I once was kinda worried about that too in the younger Jack flashback in the recent episode, but then I thought about it, and realized he’s still portrayed as ethnically Japanese.
So calm down.
