This is a little story I have running around in my head. The starting point is based off a flash i saw years ago. tails is fighting for his own identity beyond Sonic's sidekick. He gets no desired reaction from Sonic with his frustrated acts of lashing out. Sonic is always able to talk him back into his submissive role of more of a pet than the bubbly sidekick he once was.
In the desperate and scary (to everyone else, but Sonic) act, Tails decides to stay out all night alone in a city they are currently resting in (for whatever reason). While he's out he meets a stripper nicknamed Sarah and becomes her fake boyfriend.
Tails leaves Sonic for Sarah and she hooks him up with some "mad scientists". He volunteers to be the key component to an ampule weaponry system that will be used to destroy aliens coming to take over the planet.
This is based off the idea that the weapon system will need Miles to be in a special liquid breathing system and he will be fully linked to the massive arsenal.
All these different human skin colors or any other colors anyone can use, and all the human and humanized characters are human-Caucasian. Does anyone see what they are doing? I mean that as in, do you actually see it and you’re doing it without thinking?
Why is everyone white? Do you know you’re making them white, or is there some kind of joke going around that I’m not in on? I’m not calling anyone racist, before that gets started. I just want to know why everyone has to be white. Is it like a rule, or is it something important, or what? I’m not saying I don’t have any white or light skinned characters. It’s just why is so much else so drawn (or colored) to white skin?
It’s just I’m looking in a fandom tag for characters at aren’t human shaped or human colored. To be more specific, it’s Kirby fanart. I originally didn’t want to point that out, but it might be needed for me to get the point across on what I’m tiring to convey. This is just an example among the many things I’ve seen, but it’s a great example! These characters are balls and blobs of a large variety of colors, and I look at the humanized fanart and everyone’s white. Meta Knight is the only very rare exception (I’ve come across, so far). There are also alot of skinny Dedede’s but that’s someone else’s argument. I just didn’t want people to think I didn’t see that, too.
I can also ask this for humanized Pokemon, and a large number of non-human design types that are humanized in fandom. When something isn’t human or human colored why do people color their human skin in human-Caucasian?
As long as I’ve been in fandoms I’ve come cross people coloring in lighter skin on darker skinned characters, even. With as many liberties as people take with other aspects of characters I’ve noticed I’m one of the “lone rangers” on changing lighter skin colors to darker skin. I’ve seen over sized body parts, OOC, different things with weight, and other color scheme changes but 90% of the humanoid and humanized art I’ve seen has been human-white skinned. I’m saying about original character art, as well.
As I said, I’m not pointing the “racist” finger at anyone. I’ve just been looking at this for so long, so I just want to know what the hype is. What am I missing that everyone else has? What is everyone else seeing that is invisible to me?
