Comment on Detroit Maid Cafe Stuns Japanese by Pyrus:

Avatar of Pyrus

It’s not really as racist as it seems.
1. Sounds like the cafe is in a good area that you have to go through a bad area to get to.
2. The maids aren’t crack-the-mirror ugly, but some of them are a bit on the chunky side & won’t be winning any beauty contests.
3. Now this part seems racist — the maids are black. The difference of course is that black women in general are no longer pigeonholed into being maids or nothing at all as was once the case in the U.S. However, seeing black girls dressed up like maids & acting servile apparently stirs up history class lessons among people who’ve never experienced the real thing.

    Fatties: More cushion for the pushin’!!!

    If the maids are young, svelte, and pretty, the male customers might molest them. They’re only trying to imitate Japan a little.

    With any luck, a riot started by some incident with police will take place nearby and lead to the destruction of this establishment. Now I know how the Zentraedi felt in the Macross story when they first heard Minmay sing & saw males in the same space with females. I have a similar queasy feeling in my stomach right about now.

    1. Does the fact that Goku is #4 & Vegeta is #5 mean people think Vegeta is a more preferable father than Goku? 2. Don’t see Hayate’s father from Hayate No Gotoku…

    Oh yeah, my mom also loves Avatar: The air-bender, but hates The Legend of Korra.

    My father never went farther than the 6th grade & spent his Sunday mornings watching Sesame Street when he was alive. My mother currently likes to watch Little Women, Swiss Family Robinson and several other “kiddie” animations (or cartoons if you like) that she watches on Qubo & other over-the-air television stations playing in Philadelphia. Some parents are more open-minded than you might expect.

    Maybe if dad is one of “those” Mormon types: The ones you hear about on the news because they kept their daughter, grand-daughter, & great-grand-daughter locked up & pregnant in the basement as their “wives”.

    The only anime my mom definitely likes is Ranma 1/2. However, she did seem to enjoy Azumanga Diaoh & Vandread. But she thought Project A-ko, Urusei Yatsura, Slayers, & Excel Saga were all too crazy for her tastes.
