Here is a story by Sora News 24 on this as well: Nike commercial addresses bullying and racism in Japan, riles up debate online【Video】

I watched the ad and I have read both the Sora News 24 and Washington Post articles. I think the ad was well done and points to what is definitely an issue. How "hafu" are treated in school is one of the reasons that we chose to live in the US.

I'm interested to hear other's opinions about this though.
