The only racist here is the interviewer. He keeps calling the Asian yellow ranger "yellow" in place of "Asian".

After all these years, he still hasn't found a decent barber.smh He's literally known for having the worst haircut in TV history and I wish it would stop. We should start a Go Find Him A Barber account ASAP!! Loved the original Power Rangers though.

Maybe they weren't racists, but they were pretty sure homophobic. Look at what happened to David Yost. I've heard not only they used to call him a faggot, but they also repeatedly questioned the other cast members about his sexuality. And it's not like he did anything to deserve it, he was in good terms with all his co-workers. He's still friends with Amy, Walter stood up for him more than once, JDF does charity stuff with him and reportedly helped him not to be released from the show back then (a courtesy he certainly didn't do to ASJ, who he notoriously dislikes).

I dont think its racist that the black power ranger is black. I mean look at it this way... "Black Power" ranger. Is it racist that the Black Panther is and wears black? Nope.

Wolfie Blackheart (4 months ago)
Actually as the actor said for mmpr (mighty morphing power rangers) all the actors who went for the role of Zack were black, no racism intended just the description of his fighting style and personality seemed to fit a black guy, the suit colour also wasn't a racist thing it's more of an irony thing, Zack the black ranger was played by a black guy, 25 years later its like "oops that was completely racist" nah man it's ironic not racist

A big part of aging or not aging is mental, stay as sane as you can and you'll age well

0:16 - 0:20 The little girl in the background is like "Who the hell is that?" Makes me feel so old considering I was about her age when the show first came out in 1993...xD

He’s missing his left middle finger
prayforjonas (8 months ago)
People will always look for reasons to be offended. If it had been a white guy doing hip hop martial arts, it would have been cultural appropriation. If Zack had been "less black", he would have been a white-washed Uncle Tom. If he had been too black, he would have been a stereotype. This is what you get when you choose to hold onto a victim mindset. Everything offends you.

I feel like if he had had and this goes for the rest of them if they had better management or promotion they all could be major stars I mean there’s huge to all of us who grew up on power ranger but I feel like they could be like Oscar nominated actors

the yellow one died
Chris Palmeri (9 months ago)
Despite the idea that each charachter was colored to steriotypes, i feel every ranger made it thier own and brought so much power to each charachter as a person rather than a race. While I have to say green and white were my favorite in terms of power and costume and zord, every charachter had a euniq charachter to them that made them who they are today. Go go power rangers!

Maurice Moore (10 months ago)
Idk if anyone has meantioned this. But I find it funny how he's pointing race fingers and in the same beat refer to an Asian woman as yellow. That's in my opinion as offensive as someone walking up to me calling me a African American man colored. Idk it's odd...idk how an asian individual reacts. Maybe the same way we would if we're referred to as black.

Power rangers was the shit..They should of kept the green ranger evil though. When he was the bad guy those few episodes were off the hook.
Phillip Strenger (10 months ago)
He's one of the coolest actors I've ever met in person. At a local Comic Con he was looking at the bar area and (semi) yelled "I KINDA wanna order something...but I ALWAYS get carded!!!" Signed my poster and POP Funko. Love this dude, he and Jason David Frank are my 2 favorite Power Rangers.

You guys kill me ...ugh...Power rangers weren't always racist...originally the show was going to be called Fruit Rangers, I believe in 1999 when it was originally created....and the black fruit ranger wore RED, not black....with a watermelon on the back of his costume.
