Nobody's saying that the Avatar world isn't seen through a Western lens, or that it's somehow meant to be a substitute for the real-world cultures it takes its influences from. I don't understand how this is somehow more egregious than any of the Asian fantasy universes we see in other cartoons, including those of Asian origin. There's nothing in "Avatar" that we don't see in anime shows - it's just a different stlye and POV.
And the frankly two white guys have done a much better job than I've seen in some media that originated from Asia or from Asian-American creators. It beats the "Jackie Chan Adventures" any day.
