BTW, if you really think it's necessary to ask the Instructables folks to consider removing a post, Flag it and/or contact the admins by following the instructions at

https://www.instructables.com/about/contact.jsp

Posting your gripe here or in the forums is *not* a very effective way to reach the admins. And making it public risks stubbing your toe if you've misread something.)

And the racist element is?

Definition of Racism:

1. A belief or doctrine that inherent differences among the various human races determine cultural or individual achievement, usually involving the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.
2.
a policy, system of government, etc., based upon or fostering such a doctrine; discrimination.
3.
hatred or intolerance of another race or other races. "

Personally I don't see how the masks fit into this.

I agree, doesnt seem to be much racism going on. According to wikipedia "uka uka" is one of the characters from the crash bandicoot franchise.

I realise that the name "uka uka" is an unfortunate one which does tend towards the cultural stereotyping but this is an error of Radical Entertainment and not the instructable in question.

To be honest I first had a similar reaction to yours when I first saw it but google does wonders.
