Located on the PetitionOnline.com website is another petition known as "Let's Save America - Ban Anime Now." After reading the statement within the aforementioned, and entirely ridiculous, petition, we, the undersigned, feel that the "Ban Anime Now" petition should not only be removed from the PetitionOnline.com website, but that such a petition should not be allowed to exist ever again on PetitionOnline.com

The reason behind these feelings is quite simple. The "Ban Anime Now" petition is highly racist. It makes statements on both Japan and the Japanese that suggest that Japan is some kind of evil society. The petition almost reaches of the point of saying that anime and Japan are works of the devil (Which it might as well, since it gives that idea across.).

Eg. "It is called 'anime'. Anime is a perverse, evil, insidious form of animation from the dark land of Japan, and is corrupting America's youth at unprecedented rates."

- "Ban Anime Now" states that Japan is a "dark land", and that anime is perverse, evil, and insidious. It also claims that anime is corrupting American youth.

Eg. "Anyone who is found in possession of anime should be arrested and jailed for an exhorbant period of time."

- Anime is a part of Japanese culture. The "Ban Anime Now" petition is clearly stating that anyone who is in possession of items that are part of Japanese culture should be arrested and jailed.

Eg. "Anime is a dark scourge upon our beautiful nation, and we don't need this Japanese filth corrupting the hearts of the children."

- Once again, statements made that depict racism towards Japan and its culture. They state that anime is a dark scourge, and that it is "Japanese filth." With that statement, they are clearing saying that anything the Japanese produce, as well as the Japanese themselves, are filth.

The entire petition of "Ban Anime Now" is a shot of racist statements that should not be allowed here, or anywhere, on the net. Is this really the kind of thing we want to teach today's younger generation? That Japanese culture and the Japanese are some kind of perverted evil society bent on destroying America?

We sincerely hope that the people at PetitionOnline.com will correct this horrid mistake and remove that petition before it gets out of hand.

    The Ban Anime petition was extremely racist and also ageist and very offensive on many levels. It's insulting and sickening and should be removed immediately.

    What kind of lunatic would want to ban anime? There's just as much "filth," violence, and exposure for kids in American movies and television shows as there might be in Japanese anime.
