Whoa... didn't know Japan was so racist and open about it, and yet, not one tourist brochure or a travel magazine covered it in their article. Interesting.
I don't think it is so racist. There is certainly an element of that but not sure if it is just a few insecure idiots or a broader tendency just below the surface of everyday society. I remember being told by this guy who was at some kind of "discussion" about why relations between Chinese and Japanese are so bad. I was told that one guy who was actually a professor at quite a high level university actually said "We think it is kind of special to be Japanese." but from what I have seen, I believe this guy to be just a fool and not at all typical.
The police are a different story! Problem for them is once upon a time they could simply arrest anyone with different color skin, who wasn't willing to be a lackey of the fascists and other capitalists and etc, (Earlier on this thread there were some people praising Japanese fascists as "being very well behaved" but that is another story.) now they are impotent and only able to get in one's face if one doesn't know his or her rights.
Please don't encourage him. He will never find a job or have any money if he sits around all day trawling through discussion boards, editing stupid little images to use on them.Sorry for being totally off-topic but I want to tell Dave; you seem to have a great collection of great illustrated remarks!
