narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (flashback)
Unravelling the details over time, forgetfulness and flashes of insight I can finally come up with a good comparison when it comes to charting the progress of fictional racists. Seth Nightlord of Trinity Blood and Severus Snape of Harry Potter and the Noun of Adjective both being the sort of subtly racist characters who usually get entirely overshadowed by the obvious ones.

"This App is good. However, you're apping for a pakistani character and using an obviously middle-area located asian model for your character pic. Please remedy this or your app will be void."

From this [livejournal.com profile] bad_rpers_suck post. The OP goes on to complain how this is excessively anal hence their posting but actually this kind of action by mods is a good thing.

Over on [livejournal.com profile] debunkingwhite this post sadly didn’t surprise me all that much. The video is something that ought to be watched first before any discussion.

Briefly because I’m running out of spoons and ‘give a damn’ over this.

Which spells it out nicely. Especially for those racists who think that anything that falls outside of the ‘norms’ that they’ve decided on for another culture means that said culture encourages people to try to be white.
