This kind of thing blew my mind in China. They absolutely don’t care about that Asian caricature it’s on noodles oil menus and chips apparently.

The Chinese don’t share the same context with these caricatures as it was historically used in the US. There’s a picture taken several years ago in China of my Chinese mother making “slanty eyes” of my white husband’s eyes as he wears a rice hat. Mom and the kiosk guy selling the hat thought it was hilarious. But in the US the “slanty eyed” look was often used in a derisive fashion (as recently as my childhood in the 80s) to make fun of East Asians. Different context different meaning. I still have that picture but to this day none of the people we showed it to in the US find it funny like we did. It’s probably good that we never frxd it....

Lol I was at this music festival in Shanghai last week and this dweeby white anime guy was running around with one of those rice hats in. And a shit-eating grin. I remember thinking that I wouldn't have identified it as racist if he didn't look like such a goddamn ass hole

Oh for fucks sake! - that was me. Let me explain the crime in great detail.
No sunscreen weather report shows rain happening later on in China. It was the perfect hat.
I actually wear it a lot during Summer time because if you research SPF you'll learn that ten minutes of exposure does skin damage. Vampires don't get skin cancer. I'm not going to wear a wonkass American style cowboy hat in China so a straw conical hat actually makes more sense as the lesser of two evils. I'm loath to apply sun lotion so I cover up instead.
I was not wearing an anime shirt. It's a standard long sleeve black button shirt (I bought that shirt in America because I wanted a few office-formal shirts). For some reason a lot of animes have kids wearing similar shirts... but there's nothing anime about a long sleeve black buttoned shirt. I can see how it could be construed as unintentional cosplay.
Several Chinese people told me that they liked the hat. The girls I went with told me that people were smiling at me constantly.
When I first bought the hat at the Great Wall I asked myself if I'd ever wear it anywhere else because isn't it silly? Isn't is cultural appropriation? Then Summer came and I wore it when exercizing the dog in the sun. People kept telling me they like the hat. I'm not going to disagree with them. However I'm sure I look like the asshole of the year to other foreigners who haven't walked a mile in my conical hat. I also look like I'm fresh off the boat.
Try on a conical hat some time and check the reactions. It might give you a shit eating grin.

Exactly they never went through slavery and civil rights period so many of the imagery you see in the west don't carry the same connotation. This is why things like Darlie toothpaste and that detergent commercial exist.

It doesnt look like the typical racist caricature. If he was wearing a Vietcong hat and was saying "me rearry rike you rong time" then sure.
The cartoon seems innocent to me.

Yeah get the England flag off your shitty American snacks.
Why do Chinese often support England during the euros/world cup?

Because EPL is the most popular league in China.
