It's less of a stereotype when the actress herself is black. She ain't got no thang.

No, she's basically stereotyping herself. For every person that screams prejudice or racism for making black characters talk that way in fiction, there's seems to be more and more people that really do talk that way.

I think it's time we stop calling it a stereotype and call it fact. I've personally have never met anyone black that doesn't talk that way. Even the most professional and educated sounding people I have met, still talk that way when they're off the clock and just hanging with friends. In fact, can it really be called ghetto speak when people that don't live in ghettos talk like that?

As a black person, steoreotypes like these don't really offend me(in fact one of my favorite characters in Total Drama Island was Leshawna) but the lines we got from April really annoy the crap out of me. April in this is almost as bad as the black chick from Freddy vs Jason.

I don't mind this high energy April at all. Design will likely be fine as well. Kat is cute. Annoyed at the race swap.

I wonder how April will be portrayed in this version, you think they will make her a feisty and more competent character in this one, Nick April during the middle of the season started getting Ninja lessons, and developing telekinetic powers, she always helps the Turtles on a number of situations.

So I'm curious what direction they will take this version of April, will she be more hands on in this one?

What specific lines did you not like as a black person?

Mostly the voice and the inflection but when she said "Game On" I cringed a bit.

i will say this.

when they released the 4Kids voices out of context before the show hit, I cringed 100% at everything. especially hun and baxter.

of course, after the first season hit, it soon became my favorite.

I don't see that happening here....but...always a chance i'm surprised.

had hope for the last show too, but that fell apart fast.

I always check before posting links/videos. If I do post a link/video and someone else manages to post it before me by a few secs, then I would delete my post.

Is there existing footage or audio of when 4kids first announced the voice actors?

it might be archived somewhere, but it was one of the last things posted on the old official ninja turtles.com website.
