    Hmm, I've seen the second one and you're right, if memory serves he did note that he regretted his depiction of Asians. The problem with cartoons however, is that in cases like this, it is kind of difficult to portray certain races without seeming a tad insensitive due to the exaggerated features that come along with the style of your drawing. Though I suppose nowadays the only real rule about drawing an Asian is that you forego giving them buck teeth. Generally speaking you can get away with giving them slanted eyes as long as you don't go full Brock with it.

    i think the second one is racist for its message rather than just the drawing itself
