is it racist for someone who isn't Japanese to refer to themself as ____-chan or _____-sama etc. because I know this guy who's always going on about racism but he has chan on the end of his url and I know a weeaboo that uses sama but I suppose that's expected from a weeaboo

Yes, it’s racist. I mean it’s pretty much accessorizing the language and if you’re not Japanese then you shouldn’t use chan, kun, sama, senpai, kawaii, desu, hime, and so on in the first place. That includes ANYONE who’s not Japanese btw (talking to ALL you white people, Asian people that aren’t Japanese, and other POC). Also while we’re sort of on this discussion, I’m sick of the term “waifu” and I hope it dies out.
