Quote from GalgamationWell this will be my last response to you broheim.
You still don't seem to understand the fact that WHEN THE BLOCK WAS ACTUALLY IN ROTATION, people would come across names they could not say, proceed to say them in some asian accent and then mass asian bashing would begin. This happened frequently, almost everywhere I drafted this block.
The set was racist because it overemphasized all this asian culture stuff and people felt compelled to make fun of it. Just because EDH guys love samurai's and ninja's now does not mean that people who actually drafted the block thought the same way.
If you don't understand that making an asian block can (and did) result in racism when its exposed to the super mature magic crowd, then I simply can't help you.
Quote from LordOwlingtonIIIHow Freudian.
Quote from LordOwlingtonIIIBut the block was racist: In Kamigawa, ALL the foxes are white. ALL the rats are Black, ALL the snakes are green, ALL the moonfolk were blue, and ALL the goblins were red!
Quote from Galgamation
The block was racist. Straight up, in many cases, obviously so.
It overplayed asian stereotypes, and many people felt like it was poking fun at asian culture. Along with the unpronounceable names, the block encouraged more racist discussions at draft tables/LGSs then any other magic block I have ever drafted, not close. My LGS store owner had to tell people to tone it down multiple times throughout this block because the discussions got so bad.

Quote from AoiWhat the... isn't that an infinite cycle?? MAN, that stinks o____O
Quote from GalgamationAnywhere but Kamigawa.The only people who liked that block when it was around were the anime fanboys.
Quote from GalgamationSome people also found it to be pretty racist.

Quote from Darkstar80Dominaria. But I want each set to reboot Arabian Nights, Antiquities, and Legends. I'm not asking for reprints, but a revisitation of the first 3 expansions.
Quote from pstmdrnI don't really want a huge cataclysmic storyline with lots of famous people. I just want to see the various cultures, traditions, magical practices and locations of that Dominarian type of fantasy realm participating in day to day trials of common life.
