This is &$^&#&$@@!!!

If you look at avatars from a racial point of view, I think all of them needs to be changed, at least the ones depicting people.

This is the first thread I have seen about race on these forums, let's leave it at that.

Locking since this is $#%^#^$#

Okay, maybe its just me, but doesn't the "Mad" face :x look just a little bit Asian to you?

Yes, it does.

What do you think that says about Gentoo's view on different ethnicities?

nothing.

kosamae wrote:
Is this some kind of terrible stereotype, that all Asian people are angry people?
No. Actually I know of another stereotype stating that asians are smiling all the time for no obvious reasons.

kosamae wrote:
Or maybe that Asians are the only angry ones- since all of the other faces have no mongloid features, and are not angry.

They are almost all yellow, so i wouldnt say they have no 'mongloid features'.

Are they saying that the Asian community stands out as a angry, yet otherwise emotionless mob?
No.

While i dont know what 'veclempt' means, im quite sure that there is no reason to feel like that.
