Yes, racist. I'm serious. The other reindeer laughed at him. Then, out of the blue, they need him. He's as good as a fog light or whatever. You know what, so you tell me, how is it any different than: 'Don't talk to Reggie, he's black. Oh, wait, he can play basketball. Sign him up.' Rudolph, Reggie.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
Had a very shiny nose...
And if you ever saw it
You would even say it glows...
All of the other reindeer
Used to laugh and call him names
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games...

And he is not one of us
He has never been one of us
He is not part of us
Not our kind

How funny I was too young for so many things
Yet you thought I'd cope with being told I'm ugly
Over and over I'd read it, believe it
Said no to the shrink, I can fix me, I think
I've got friends in my head, they've got me on the mend
I am pretty in my mirror, easy to pretend
17 and thought that I'd won the jackpot
Seems I didn't read between the lines of this one
I can't think why I could of made you so, so angry
Your bullets I don't feel them, come and fire at me.

"They need you right now. But when they don't? They'll cast you out. Like a leper!"
"Do you know what it feels like, Baki-san, to be judged by the your Village, your home. To be feared? To not know a mother's touch or a father's encouragement? Do you know how it feels when people come after you, try to kill you because of the fact that you exist? To feel the glares on your back, not knowing why? To feel so goddamn alone? Do you? Don't answer that, it was rhetorical. But that's what all Jinchuuriki feel like. (...) Though this kid may not look it, he's hurting. So much. Too much. The pain, it's unbearable, especially if you don't have someone to share it with. He's supposed to protect the Village, but the very same Village wants him dead."
