He encountered no problems since he was in charge of all of the Japanese actuaries but American tourists or any foreigner not of my brother's stature were laughed at and disregarded regardless of race. Not only that, Tokyo is fucking expensive. My brother's tiny 2 bedroom apartment was $12000 USD/month. Hobo

I lived in Japan for a few years, back in the 70's. Learned the language. I enjoyed the culture. Didn't see any racism. I was treated with respect.

Is this racism something new on the landscape? Where did it come from?

My brother didn't see them as racists, he saw them as classists. Not everyone was treated with the same respect as he was. Since he was their boss and shit.

It's not often out-right harassment or discrimination (though reports abound of 'no foreigners' establishments) as a constant feeling of mistrust of anybody not Japanese.

But that's just what the hearsay has to say on it. I've never been meself.

Hearsay, as compared to first-hand experience ... Consider

My black brother-in-law -- and yes, this too is hearsay -- would confirm this. He was stationed there for four years and definitely felt less-than in the eyes of the Japanese.

I've never been there ... but I've never had reason to doubt Al's word. And additionally, I've done enough reading about their treatment of Koreans to think that MZ's faith is misplaced.

I hope he's happy there, I honestly do, but to be perfectly honest, Zeke strikes me as the sort of guy who clings to his hurts, nurturing them for reasons I don't honestly fathom.

The Japanese have their own aboriginals who do the menial labour. These people are called the Ainu. Japan is most certainly racist.

Go here for more information.

It is similar to the caste system of India in many ways.

Poor little Zeke. I told him he should have gone to South Korea instead.

I know japan ain't a land of sunshine(despite it being called 日本). The way girly described it is accurate, more cass and fitting in. A black man that speaks japanese is more likely to be accepted vs a japanese person who doesn't. I know about ainu too. Plus I did not pick korea because of the creationist that live there(which is why i wanted to move to japan in the first place)

So what I saw on that link was a bunch of unsupported points.

I asked you for metrics -- i.e., numerical data. If you don't have that, it's cool. But all you've done here is support your opinion by putting up another opinion, when I clearly asked for facts.

You either have them, or you don't. Quit pussyfooting.
