korra white wash

There is not a single white character in Avatar: The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra.

Aang is fantasy counterpart Tibetan. 

Katara, Sokka, Korra are fantasy counterpart Inuit.

Toph Beifong, Lin Beifong, Suki, etc. are fantasy counterpart Chinese.

Zuko, Iroh, Azula, Mai, Ty Lee, Asami Sato are fantasy counterpart Japanese.

Tenzin, and his children, and his siblings Bumi and Kya are fantasy counterpart Tibetan/Inuit.

Mako and Bolin are fantasy counterpart Japanese/Chinese.

NEITHER OF THESE CHARACTERS ARE WHITE. Repeat after me, there is NOT A SINGLE WHITE CHARACTER IN THE AVATAR UNIVERSE. 

Which is, by the way, the reason the film adaption is so horrible, horrible and horribly wrong, because of it’s blatant white-washing. This is why it’s not okay to picture ANY of these characters as white. If you don’t know how to draw Asian/Inuit characters, at least try or better, LOOK IT UP. There are tutorials out there.

But don’t just make them white because “artistic freedom”. That’s a lazy ass, shitty and harmful excuse.

Has any ‘whitewashing’ tumblr has cried about ever been real

Like from my recollection it’s all shit like jumping on fanartists who were trying to learn light sources or outright lies like the previous post

or shit like when Tumblr as POSITIVE!!! Nick had white washed Korra for season 2, based on phone camera pics taken in a fucking con hall of a projection screen
