About

Goku's Racist Evolution, also known as I'm About To Get Racist, refers to a series of meme videos and exploitable images in which Son Goku and/or other Dragon Ball characters declare they will become gradually more racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, anti-semitic or transphobic as they power-up through their transformations.
