I knew ex-pats in Japan who had this expectation that Japan should vilify xenophobia as if they have the same sins as we do to atone for.
Sure but my point is that judging a country only by how it treats Western white people, with all their privilege, isn't very fair

I doubt you’d be comfortable at all walking around where I live.

I found after growing up in crime-ridden Atlanta living in relatively crime free cultures liberating. Coming back to America it was like practically everyone you meet is uneducated and aggressive.

China has all the same problems as the US + you don't get to talk about them

Lol @ the idea Japan's racism is somehow justified since they "don't have the same sins" aka slavery. No, they just tried to conquer half the planet in league with the ****ing Nazis.

OH has America Derangement Syndrome.

Btw, this is American treatment of people with opposing political views:






I’m not saying the protestors arrested by the feds are going Abu Ghraib or Gitmo but how do you think you’d fare in federal prison?

Free speech? It’s ****ing worthless. How many years of nothing ever changing do you need to see?
One of my favorite jokes is when somebody makes a comment about the USSR with a picture of American child laborers.

We can do something similar with these.
