About Tezuka's portrayal of African people in some of his works, he did follow the caricatures that was in Disney and other American animation. In Helen McCarthy's book "Tezuka the God of Manga", she mentions that America and American media was presented to Japanese as ideal reflections of an ideal harmonious society. Problems in America such as racism were edited out when shown to the Japanese . So Tezuka and others may have thought these depictions were acceptable and non-offensive representations of black people. It's not likely the Japanese would be able to find out any different, until much of the US censorship of Japanese and American media stopped. For some reason I can't imagine Tezuka having a chat with some black soldiers asking them if his drawings were ok. How would he even know to ask? (I am a Black person and I love Tezuka's stuff at least in Black Jack I get the feeling he did not intend any offense.)
