Petition to Target, Bananagrams , Walmart, Barnes & Noble

Ask Stores to Remove "The Noodle Game" from Shelves. Call for Non-Racist Package Design.

This petition calls for new packaging for "The Noodle Game" by Bananagrams, and for all stores who carry it—such as Target, Barnes & Noble, and Walmart—to remove it from shelves until inoffensive design is implemented.  I'm a Korean American woman, graphic designer, and author who writes about race, trauma, and identity. When I came across "The Noodle Game" at Target, I was appalled. I don't see a problem with the concept of the game, which is picking up noodles with chopsticks. However, the packaging is highly insensitive to Asians living in the west. On one of the panels of the Chinese takeout box is a photo of two white children in martial arts costumes, among text that tells kids to become a noodle ninja. This is not creative celebration of Asian cultures but mockery that Asian children will internalize and non-Asian children will mimic. Target knew enough not to display the problematic panel on their website, which leads me to believe they understand the issue many will have. Imagine an Asian child being asked to play this game with non-Asian kids who don't know better than to copy what they see on the box. Asian American children already face prejudice, racial mockery, and sometimes violence due to stereotypical depictions like this. Large corporations such as Target need to do better.  I'll provide free artistic consulting to make this product suitable for shelves:  Include a more diverse group of children playing the game, with at least one Asian child.  Rather than martial arts costumes, have the kids dressed in casual American attire. Eliminate martial arts poses. Martial arts have no connection to picking up noodles.  Remove the pandas—or at least don't depict them sparring. Pandas also have no connection to noodles.  Remove the bamboo. A regular Chinese takeout box would be fine. Throwing as many random Asian symbols and stereotypes together is offensive.  Instead of "noodle ninja" consider "noodle master".  Please sign and share this petition far and wide. Too often, racism against Asians is unchallenged, and this directly affects the kids.

Join The Echo Fighter Movement For Smash Bros Ultimate!

  Here we Join Together And Work To The Ultimate Goal of Getting some Awesome Smash Fighters as Echos Like Shadow The Hedgehog,Dark Samus,Ninten, Isabella and Black Shadow What does it Take to be a Echo fighter?  Sakurai's criteria for characters to be echo fighters appear to be: -similar body type -same series -Same Moveset with Different mechanics If you look at the 3 characters we have so far: Dark Pit, who uses a staff and can fly freely, still plays the same as Pit, who cant fly and prefers a bow. Lucina, who, in the games, fights in the style of her father, Chrom, who himself is closest to Ike in fight style. The only reason she could be considered a clone of Marth is because she pretends to be him for half of her game. Daisy, who doesn't levitate, doesn't use a frying pan, doesn't pull turnips, and doesn't use a parasol to float in the air in any game she's in.   So it doesnt matter (to an extent) what the characters do in the games, so long as Sakurai sees fit to make them Echoes. Shadow can have two spindashes and a spring, Dixie can use a barrel jetpack, and Dark Samus can fire Charge shots like Samus does. It doesnt matter if they could play differently. The benefits Of an Echo Is Greater than you Think. 1: First Off if say Shadow was a Simi Clone he'd be Considered a Fighter as Wolf would and  Therefore whenever an Updated Tweak happens he could end starting as one the  best Fighters to Being Nerf To a Joke Unplayable Level. By be Sonics echo it can Easier to Perfect Both Characters 2: Being an Echo Means you get a Lot More Alt Color Choices unlike the Koopalings 3: More Echos Means More Choices to Main. Say you were Professional  Pit Main in Brawl it's faster to switch Main Pit with Dark Pit because of the similar Movesets. The same Can't be said if you were Maining Fox In Melee and Pac Man in Smash 4 as they are so Majorly Different. Use Hashtag #EchoMovement on Your Twitter Tweets,YouTube Videos and Anywhere you use social media to help Boost Awareness.  Heck Even Post memes about it. I worked for Ridley being to big why not replicate the effects?         A More Unique Princess Daisy:   The floating ability is Peach’s special ability when she is playable in main Mario games, Super Mario Run showed us that Daisy’s was not the floating ability when she is playable in main games but the double jump. The idea here is to remove the floating ability for Daisy and give her a triple jump. On the umbrella handle, change the heart shape into a flower shape Change the blue Toad into a Crayzee Dayzee or a Snifit White Mage (Super Mario Version) - Echo of Rosalina Funky Kong - Echo of Donkey King Dixie Kong - Echo of Diddy Kong Waluigi - Echo of Luigi (Please Don't Hate me) Toon Zelda - Echo of Zelda Impa - Echo of Shiek Plusle & Minun - Echo of Pichu Doc Louis - Echo of Little Mac Dry Bowser - Echo of Bowser Octolings - Echo of Squidlings  Shadow - echo of Sonic Ken - Echo of Ryu MS. Pac Man - echo of Pac Man Roll - echo of Megaman Captain Rainbow - Echo of Captain Falcon  Slippy - Echo of Falco Peppy - Echo of Fox  Krystal ( assault Outfit) - Echo Of Wolf Medusa - Echo Palutena Crome - Echo of Ike  Sylux - Echo of Samus Aran Ninten - Echo of Ness Isabelle - Echo of Villager
