Mostly human!countries actually,, Ignore the pretzel sticks being the only real CH one and being a request. Featuring Kaden, France and Britain (whose names I have kinda forgot-), and Pei!
Have a mini comic on “different” translations. Could’ve used Ame or Australia for English, but that would make too much sense aha.
I also want to add something else to all this.
Racism is not just an American problem. I live in Britain and even though we all claim to be holier than though and perfect people, we are just as bad as the U.S.
Racism is practically in our blood. Our Prime Minister (yes the man who runs our country!) has compared women who wear burkas to letterboxes! His party is no better than a bunch of rich jeering old white men who drown out the voices of anyone they disagree with to make sure they get the most money.
Many police forces (such as Greater Manchester Police and London Metropolitan Police to name a few) have been described as institutionally racist by the head of the Chief Constable of the Greater Manchester Police Force! Yet still few changes are being made to combat this.
The Labour Party has been proven to be both Anti-Semitic and Islamophobic. Though at least there have been some inquiries into this what good is a bunch of old white dudes really gonna do?
In Britain we seem to believe that because we were on the right side of one war (and even then we still made some horrific decisions) that all of our past is excusable. The Colonialism, The Slave Trade etc will never be okay yet are brushed under the rug. It’s barely ever taught in schools and many people know very little about it. In History lessons we are always portrayed as the ‘heroes’ sweeping in to help those in need.
We have done some truly terrible things that we need to be held accountable for.
The Slave Trade - the profit we made off tearing actual, living breathing people from their homes and their families and selling them to work for commodities that we were too lazy to farm ourselves - built most of our cities (Glasgow, Liverpool, Bristol) It started most of our banks (Lloyd’s and Barclays are the two examples springing to mind) . Hell, even Tate and Lyle the ever popular sugar franchise began from the Slave Trade.
I have been horrified by some of the things my family and their friends have said and when I correct (by either by telling them that you can’t say that anymore because it’s offensive and not PC or by explaining in detail why they’re wrong) I get called a ‘snowflake’ and ‘overly-sensitive’ and told to ‘lighten up’ as well as ‘you’ll never make any friends with an attitude like that’.
I have heard people say that we should restart the Empire and invade any country who disagrees with us. Say that immigrants don’t deserve health care or education or jobs. Or that there was no point learning other languages when travelling simply speak louder because English is the superior language.
These are only a few examples.
