Boaxy saidCan he come out as black too? Like he originally was? Fuck the simpsons for making his character white, when he was black in the pilot and in Homer's Odyssey. Coming from a gay black man that was really fucked up for them changing his race.
I didn't know that: Smithers used to be black: Simpsons creator Matt Groening reveals why Burns' assistant started a different color and the reason behind making all the characters yellow
'He was always yellow, and they painted him wrong once.
'At the time we didn't have enough to do retakes, so when there were glitches and mistakes it stayed that way.
'He was never 'black', it was an accident.'
The interviewer then asks why all of the characters are yellow, to which Groening sarcastically replies: 'I've never noticed'. He then adds: 'It is so they wouldn't look like anything else on TV... except for Spongebob.'
And he said that the reason all of the characters have four fingers is because it is 'easier to draw'.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2838753/Smithers-black-mistake-Simpsons-creator-Matt-Groening-reveals-Burns-assistant-started-different-color-reason-making-characters-yellow.html
