There are no white people in the avatar universe that’s why it hadn’t already been destroyed 600 avatars cycles ago

The Fire Nation?? Airbenders?? Some people in the Earth Kingdom (like Toph)??

no the earth kingdom is based off of china, air nomads are based off of hindu priests and tibetian monks, fire nation is based off of japan, and water tribes are based off of the inuit.

there are no caucasians in the world of avatar. do not say there are

I hope this doesn’t come across as rude or anything but I have more info! There are more than just a handful of influences in Avatar and things that they’re “based” off of.

The Earth Kingdom also shows a lot of Korean influence, for example, the hanbok that Song and her mother wear:

And Japanese, via Kyoshi Island (the Kyoshi warriors look very much like kabuki actors, and their armour is reminiscent of samurai armour)

Though the architecture and a lot of the more “popular” things (particularly within Ba Sing Se) do show a lot of influence from China, particularly the Ming and Qing dynasties.

There is also (if you’d count this as “Earth Kingdom”, since it’s technically not affiliated with anyone) the Indian influence on Wan Shi Tong’s library’s architecture.

The Fire Nation’s architecture also draws a lot from Southeast Asian cultures, most notably Thailand (the rooftops of many of their buildings).

You also have the Sun Warriors, who are based off of Mayan and Aztec influence (not Asian, but still not white).

And the air nomads also draw from bhutanese culture, down to putting their temples into mountain faces!

I’m sure there are more influences as well, but these are the ones I know of. (:

While all of this stuff is really neat to see just how much culture came together to form the Avatar world…

Are we just going to ignore that the very first statement in this post is racist as hell?
