I don't mean "you" as in "you, ArtificialFlavo[u]r", but "you" as in "you white people". The same way we get called yellow and, er, African(-Americans) get called "black", though that's almost true for some of the darker ones.

The pronunciation of that word has always bothered me. People kind of made the word into (Kair-i-o-ki). Kair like Care.

well we could say 'light beige', 'beige with a slightly yellower complexion' and 'varying shades of brown' but that's a mouthfull.
Anyway I've never heard anyone say 'yo check out that yellow guy', I've always heard Asian but I dunno :v

Why is everyone throwing a shitfit over mistranslated Japanese anyway. I see people make mistakes in French all the time but I don't go 'YOU FUCKING CUNTS IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE THE OTHER TENSE NOT THE COMPOSITE PAST FUCKING WEAFRENCH FUCKERS JESUS TITTYFUCKING CHRIST ''AMERICANS/BRITS/RUSSIANS/MEXICANS/ATLANTIS-PEOPLE'' *EYEROLL*'
i like to imagine this exact thing is happening on a japanese forum somewhere with a 'your name in english!' thread and some guys are pissing themselves correcting them exactly like here.

Except not many people give a shit about the French, and vice versa.

And I've put up with it all my life. I guess it starts to piss me off after a while. Kind of like the way people immediately assume all martial arts are "kuh-rah-tee".

But I'm not white. D:

Even if French is spoken by X% of people, nothing good ever comes from France or whatever.

why should they care about japan then
i mean france has produced and continues to produce many great things that aren't cartoons or martial arts
i mean those two reasons are the only ones as to why everyone luvs japan because no one cares about actual culture

Except weeaboos.

There's also cars and all that. And that stereotype that the Japanese take crappy American junk and improve it or some bullshit like that.
