    Racist (not necessarily in a mean sense)? I mean, they had her swinging from trees like a jungle monkey and stuff.

    Not really, I found her to be a strong female character, who also happened to have an awesome team, and be in good physical form.

    No. Besides, I don't think iris was even based off of African American people.

    Not necessarily her portrayal in the anime, but the reason why she seems so hated in general imo.

    So you guys really think it's just a coincidence that the black character is the one made to be an expert swinging around in trees?
