There have been complaints in the past about obvious blackface caricature characters, dolls, and cartoons in Japan. I think they're either oblivious to it, or else don't care -- it's part of some other nation's racist history. as the articles below indicate, though, it's becoming part of their considerations as the internet-connected world continues to shrink.
