The real indicator that Dom seems to have something against Japan and Japanese people is that he made like 50 topics on how horrible Japan is, and he randomly brings up how horrible Japanese people are every chance he gets. Someone makes a post involving Japan, suddenly he replies with "did u know Japan sucks?" and a list of links with some random studies and articles. In your "N-Word" topic I posted that video of a 'Japanese' family using the word. The video was obviously made by Americans for Americans, Japanese people wouldn't understand that comedy, but he randomly starts saying "That shows the Japanese's sadistic nature...." The randomness and making all those topics and negative posts make it seem like he's on a personal campaign against Japan and it's people.

Yeah, Youtube is not the best place to have a proper discussion.

Anyways, if you have time you should check out some of the new documentaries I've uploaded: http://www.crunchyroll.com/forumtopic-533565/best-documentaries/#26179027


I don’t know when I’ll get time to watch a documentary. I’ve got a test in two days plus another the following week, seven essays left plus two extra credit writing assignments, and then this Thursday I’m going out of town until Monday wherein I’ll repeat the process. After that I’ll have to be studying for an upcoming history test…. So, I don’t know when I’ll get around to watching anything new… You might’ve noticed how terse and tactless I’ve been lately. There’s a reason. I’m so busy these days that I just can’t bring myself to take the time and effort necessary for my more…scholarly responses.

As far as his campaign against Japan, maybe now you understand why so many from the pro-Israel camp are so quick to call those from the anti-Israel camp anti-Semitic. Just try to bring up anything even remotely related to Israel and people start bashing. I’ll give you an example. On youtube there’s a promotional video for tourists to Israel. Apparently, or at least supposedly, the video was actually one in a long chain of advertisements released by an airline company to get people traveling and considering distant locations. They also released one for Seoul, and another for Australia.

Well, as I’m sure you know I intend to one day visit both Israel and Palestine. So, I was peeking around at these videos. Yet, when I glanced down at the comments-as I always do-I saw a bunch of campaigners screaming about Zionist liars and how evil Israel and the Jews are.

Here on Crunchy Roll take a stop in the 9/11 threads. You discuss a bombing ANYWHERE in the world and people seize the chance to campaign against Israel. My thread about the minds of martyrs…anti-Israel campaigns.

Really, that feels to me a bit like what I imagine Dom’s supposed vendetta against Japan feels like to you. So perhaps now you can understand where people are coming from when they toss the anti-Semite card a bit too freely. I’m not agreeing with them, just drawing a parallel so that perhaps, in the future, you can relate better with people on the issue.


Course, this isn't about Israel I'm just using that as an example because I know you're anti-Israel yourself. And again, I'll keep an eye out for Dom's comments. Dom, be on alert! :p

aww.... how about the "We do not forget, but We forgive"? mentality?

Btw, Yei which part of Canada do you live in? I heard many of Canadian can speak more than 2 languages.
They said in Quebec, we have to know France because that is the majority of people spoken. Is that true? And how about the government there? Any difference from any other country?

I live in southern Ontario.

Canada has two national languages, English and French. All the products here have to have English and French labels, and everyone learns French in school. But very few people outside of Quebec learn to speak it fluently, unless you go to a French school. Like most people here I know basic French. Yes, Quebec is a French province, where French is the main language spoken by everyone.

The government here is very boring, but pretty awesome compared to most other countries. Canada is currently ranked 3rd, and was previously first on the UN's HDI listings (best country to live in rankings). The government here really takes care of the people, and it's alot more socialized than the US.

ohh, that's interesting. I heard the south-east-west-north also spoken different languages as well, depends on what part or city do you live in. Mostly are European languages, though.

Haha~, They says the more boring government is the better they are. If that the case, I want a boring government a well Well, compared it to Japan, what do you think of social life there? Is there any some Japanese community in Canada?

In Vancouver and British Columbia there are lots of Japanese people, but there's alot less where I live. We have a famous Japanese-Canadian environment and science guy named David Sazuki. So we do have a big Japanese community here.

Correction, that's David Suzuki, a third generation Japanese-Canadian environmentalist of no Japanese nationality: http://www.davidsuzuki.org/

Misinforming? I just spelled his name wrong by one letter. I never said he had Japanese nationality, I said he was Japanese-Canadian.

And for some reason you randomly wanted to make it clear he wasn't of Japanese nationality.

Because there's a big difference in a Japanese society within Japan, than a Japanese-Canadian community within Canada. Get your terminology straight.

And again with the Kim Jong II fellow, do you even know him in person? Why are you keep associating him with me? When you have no idea who or what you're talking about.

What's wrong with my terminology?? You used the same thing, he's Japanese-Canadian. I never said he was in a "Japanese society," obviously he's in Canada. All I said was he was a famous Japanese-Canadian.

No, I don't know Kim Jong Il in person, believe it or not.

The bold text is where you got your terminology wrong.

unnecessary discussion?
Well, that's good. Knowing there's a figure of Japanese in Canada. Then Canada doesn't have racist sentiment towards Asian people, I assume?

Pretty unnecessary, I think anti-Japanese people sometimes get ahead of themselves and see opportunities that aren't there.

I don't think there's any serious racism towards Asians now, but there has been big things in the past. In WW2, Japanese people were put in concentration camps and treated pretty horribly by the government.
