Day 15: Favourite marine: Vice Admiral “White Chase” Smoker
Among my favourite antagonists and casual allies, I held Smoker really high. First because we tought he was another evil douchebag marine like Morgan. Loguetown shows us he is in fact strong. The first dude who could have taken Luffy easily -if it wasn’t for Dragon-. Then Alabasta, when he tells “they can eat shit” at the justice of the cover-up. A true man of honor, a bit tied to his own morale. Nevertheless awesome marine.
Fun History Fact: The overwhelming majority of cowboys in the U.S. were Indigenous, Black, and/or Mexican persons. The omnipresent white cowboy is a Hollywood studio concoction meant to uphold the mythology of white masculinity.
