I don't really know that much about this issue b/t the Japanese and the Chinese. But from what I studied from World War 2, Japan did seem like they were better then the Chinese. -.- But that was then and this is now and I think some people need to realize that not all Japanese dislike or think they're better then the Chinese. Same goes for the Chinese. I think people should just accept what happened and just move on and get over it.
Oh, to get through this topic was almost a pain, almost to much to read. But anyways ,what kirei_na_me said is true , here in finland we donﾂｴt like for a few exemples : Gipsys and we donﾂｴt like refugees/immigrants from iraq, iran , and neighbouring countrys.Originally posted by kirei_na_me
My point is that racism/prejudice is not limited to the US or Canada or Australia. It's everywhere. All over the world--including Japan.
Well, that's not what some of the Japanese people I know say. That might be the true meaning, but they mean it more in a metaphorical sense. In other words, they think China is too arrogant, hence saying that about the center(middle). I have found out in the past years that Chinese people think they are superior to Japanese and the Japanese think they're superior to Chinese. Obviously, there is no right answer. Both are entirely different and I find neither to be any more superior than the other.Originally posted by Dream Time
that is wrong
the Chinese name of China means 'Middle Kingdom'
because ancient Chinese people believed the land of China is at the middle of the world,well,just depends on what map you using~~
