This kind of stuff is wrong.
Stuff often happens between Countries usually because of economic or political ambitions leading to strained relations or even war that seldom if ever really solves matters. Spreading hatred between people is a sure fire way of keeping this this cycle going dont'cha think?
Toss a ball in a park and watch kids of all backgrounds go on after it, playing with each other whatever than adults in their lives may have said. Why? Cos the kids see another human being like them!

I understand why they hate Japan, but keep in mind that it wasn't ABSOLUTELY EVERY SINGLE Japanese who were involved with war, and that Japan isn't as bad as before (meaning not invading or anything)

I don't understand why the past can't be put into the past and for there to be forgiveness what's the use in passing the hatred to the next generation, that just creates more hatred in the world and there's already so much of it ...
It makes me frustrated and dissapointed...

People, before you go hating on China, read up on some history first. For instance, what the Japanese armies did in northern China during the invasion in the 1930's. Now imagine what the Nazis did to the Jewish people. Now do you have an idea what kind of impact the invasion had on Chinese people?

Besides, the person who started this thread was being misleading. He didn't even give any evidence to back up his claim. and you guys are just going with the flow. Look up Nanking Massacre, and you'll see why some old people in China still hold grudges against Japan. So please don't go saying "That's so messed up" or "that's stupid" when you actually don't know anything.

For the record, Chinese schools are not teaching their students racism. What they teach in history classes, is history. Most Chinese schools begin teaching social studies in the 4th grade, just stories about the famous historical people in China, and then 2 years of history in middle school. History is not even taught anymore in the 3rd year of middle school and the 3 years of high school. High school in China concentrates on the individual student's major. (Yes, Chinese students choose their majors in high school.)

I was born in China and went to elementary school and 2 years of middle school in China. In the history textbooks (same textbooks were used nationwide), they included the Japanese invasion in a factual manner, honestly, I didn't see any exaggerations. The brief accounts for the events were told from an objective point of view. and I said "brief" because the history textbooks focused mostly on ancient Chinese history (you know, the emperors and the dynasties). Modern Chinese history only got a few chapters in the middle school 2nd year textbook. And somewhere within that, the Japanese invasion was mentioned, among the other countries that also invaded China. They didn't delve on the matter like they particularly hated Japan.

On the contrary, history textbooks in Japan totally omit mention of anything about the Nanking Massacre and other significant historical events that happened during the invasion. They refuse to include the incidents, like they never happened. That's old news and some of you have probably heard of it. I feel they ought to acknowledge the incidents. I mean, how would black people in America feel if slavery was not mentioned at all in American history textbooks?

I don't hate Japan or anything, I just want to clarify some things so that people won't misunderstand. And while I don't agree with some of China's politics and whatnot, I don't want people bashing my home country mindlessly.

Below zero . *
Because of race only is unreasonable.

Edit: Some teaching have great impact, whatever the reason is, opinion on people through race is not right. But if it about fact on history then there be no problem, let the student decide how they should feel.
If the Chinese only teach about history then I expected the title of this thread kind of off.

Being the non-Judgemental people we are, whose textbooks are in no way bias, we, Americans, are all appaled at the way that Japan, a country that still worship World War Two war criminals like Hideki Tojo, is being depicted in a Chinese textbook. Why are the Japanese (whose glorious expedition to unite Asia by means of raping and killing everyone) depicted so cruelly in the textbook of a land they commited a great deal of autrocities to? That's just insane, unjust, and wrong.

the Japanese that fought in the WW2 with China and the China people who suffered from the Japanese occupation had longed died. The China people that suffered from WW2 should be the ones that hate Japan, not the modern ones.
