>>16792886 Wherever you go, you're bound to be shit upon. That's how the social world works. What matters is how you react to it; you can avoid the shit, you can agree with the shit, or you can embrace the shit and turn it from a weakness into a strength. People probably have a harder time with the latter, considering people don't like their arms covered in doodoo.
>>16792886 Oh they are SUPER fucking racist. They've lived on an island for thousands of years before really interacting with the outside world, and that isolationist/xenophobic attitude is still there and thriving.
>>16792901 I second this and amplify it. Japan has literally zero immigration and along with Korea and China are amongst the most racially intolerant people on earth. They are happy to watch and pass judgement on the rest of the world so long as whatever shit's going down stays well away from the homeland.
They welcome visitors, love white westerners, but you're a visitor nonetheless.
>>16792886 Currently living in Japan. Children that are half-Japanese catch a lot of shit, but to leave the country due to that might give an exaggerated impression. I know several Japan-born half-Japanese people. They do experience problems, but they are able to live in Japan and enjoy it.
I don't know that I'd say Japan is more racist than other places. I'm an American minority myself, and from my understanding of my friends here...I mean, they get asked where they are from and can get hassled by police and shit like that, but nobody is getting murdered by cops or anything.
Well, I lived in Japan for a year (Tokyo) I never actually felt discriminated. Sure, some people stared at me sometimes, but it wasn't a discriminatory look, I felt it more like curiosity. Everyone I met was nice to me. Sometimes I even felt like some kind of celebrity because when people looked at me, it was like me being fucking Jesus walking among men. Some girls said I was incredibly attractive (Even though I consider myself average). Now, the only problem is that I lived in Tokyo, so I have no idea how other parts of Japan react to foreigners...
>>16792886 I'm half vietnamese and english. went to japan several years ago on a trip. a train station master got really irritated I couldn't speak japanese well in a small town. Probably thought I was half japanese. But for mixed people they kind of are in awe of you most of the time. But they can be quite racist... or let's say are either quite ignorant of other cultures or prejudiced. A small percentage in a spiteful way but the majority just due to unfamiliarity.
as a culture they are actively in the modern era resisting any attempts to penetrate their homogeny.
the younger ages such as 20 and under that still have ideas about individualism are more receptive to talks about foreign influences, but that quickly fades when they goto college or meld into the workforce where individualism is basically an insult to everything else if allowed to rise any higher than your immediate space.
