    1. They're racists

    2. They didn't think of it

    3. They're hiding their racism by mirroring it

    Did anyone of you noticed it?

    This sign is a svastika...It's an asian symbol & not the nazi cross.


    Go on Google Image to see what the difference is...

    The branches of a svastika point to the left, the nazi cross, to the right.

    It's called a "Manji" and they're all over Japan as a symbol of luck. I even saw pools at shrines that were shaped that way.

    Kind of surprised it got through the screening process. I'm sure that the company will issue a recall if someone complains, like what happened when someone complained about it being on a pokemon card.

    I'm Jewish and I'm not offended by it, but that's because I know there's no intent to be malicious. Not everyone is going to feel the same way though, so if it bothers someone, they certainly have a right to complain.

    Even if it was a good sign, not anymore...
    so if you make that sign with a bad meaning and say it used to be a good sign it won't mean it could hurt some people.

    people get way too paranoid about swastikas

    IIRC, there was at least one pre WWII US army brigade that had a golden swastika as its emblem and had to change it after war broke out. turns out that the swastika is the native American sign for the sun god too.

    There's also a swasdika on Ichigo's sword when he's in Bankai mode, I think. In Japan it's used a lot in Buddhism.

    It's the same word, with different spelling. -___-" That's like saying "honor" and "honour" means different thing.

    Same goes for the myth that left-facing swasdika = good and right-facing = bad. The symbol means the same no matter which way you flip or rotate it. It's just that Asian swasdika usually are drawn facing left and the Nazi swasdika just happened to be drawn facing right. The symbol represents what it's user wants it to.

    It's even in the anime - That symbol is on Ichigo's Zanpakutou Hilt. It's also the symbol they use to represent their Bankai. Play any of the Japanese Bleach games, hover over their Bankai state, and you'll see that symbol right there.

    Also, if you look closely, the Nazi swastika is slightly rotated to the right -- many circular dances rotate to the right, because they are battle dances. Turning to the right = battle dance = death. Turning to the left = celebration = life.


    To be honest with you, we studied this subject just last week in my British History class [​IMG]

    I remember the first time I saw the asian use in a Bruce Lee film when I was a kid (game of death I think). There was a nice big one in gold on his coffin and I was like WTF why is Bruce a Nazi? and my dad told me that it was a religious symbol and not the same thing.

    Also it was funny when an Indian friend of mine sent out his wedding invites with gold svastika symbols on them (nice big ones in gold centered on the cover [​IMG] ) and most of the people invited were New Zealand European and didn't know that it wasn't some kind of Neo Nazi wedding. i have to admit I did put the invite away as I didn't want people that don't know to get the wrong idea.

    the sign also means "ban" in japanese (it makes up 50% of the japanese word bankai, also the reason it's used as bankai symbol)

    I think it means "Super Size" which stands for "SS". And if you cross the "S"s over, you will get a wavy sign and if you unbend the "S"-waves, you'll come to this sign!
    Very easy, what did you think?! xDDD

    Check out the guy in this article (scroll down to 'Free expression isn't always a good thing'), on Mario Kart wi-fi he used the emblem of the swastika, and the funny thing is: I've Raced Him! I remember when I first saw it I was a bit shocked but raced him anyway and he put up a good race, can't remember who won though
