A Little Competition Can Hurt Perception

I hope you're starting to see how Fried Chicken and Sushi challenges perceptions of how we see people of different races.  Of course, we're getting used to seeing Karl screw up socially while living in Japan.  Through characters like Miki and Hachiro, we see that even being asian in Japan is not all it's cracked up to be.  Now, we're getting a chance to experience some of J's challenges of being a talented African-American in a predominately white video game company.  It's so easy to pre-judge individuals due to their "look" that we can underestimate their knowledge and ability without even realizing it.  I think it's going to be fun to watch J and Ryan compete for attention while designing the Ninja Super Saga video game.  Let's hope Ryan will give a bit more respect to J.  Many of us out there, no matter what race or ethnicity have been judged unfairly by people that didn't really know or understand us.  Hopefully, we can lighten up enough to have a little laugh at it in comic strip form.  Enjoy!
