I look down upon you as well. Learn to type and then come back. If I was the mod here I would close all these topics. Go out there and find out yourself, but if you would come to me talking like this I would discriminate you myself.

This is a hell of a question? I'm Japanese and black mix first of all... I was born here in japan I speak, read, and write Japanese the first thing you should know is that Japanese are usually most comfortable with other Japanese or those who can navigate the culture and LNG. We Japanese are known as the most hospitable people in the world. with that said all guest that come to japan are welcomed... that is our culture but most Japanese dont often meet foreigners so with that said there is a strong shy factor when speaking to people who are non Japanese (Gaigokujin). in my area there are not many non-Japanese ( or very few i should say) but when people find out I'm a mix there is always so many who become more interested in me. as for dark skin people I have many friends in Tokyo who are Indian/ African (dark-skin cultures) who work in computer company they all speak Japanese and they love living here. though I will say when it comes to women pale Asian skin it is seen as beautiful but there are also the younger generation that love to tan and become dark but if you go to Okinawa many Japanese have dark skin too LOL. i think such hang ups and insecurities about skin color and race are an American thing. we don't care...we just live in the Japanese way.... that's all ( hope that helps you out)


I have to tell you that you would be wrong in thinking that. There are countries all over the world that treat the darker skinned people in their own countries like crap along with people of african descent. As far as Japan goes, I have never been and plan on visiting in the next year or so but from what ive been told by people that have been there to visit or were stationed there, Okinawa is pretty friendly to dark skinned people but theyre not as friendly in Tokyo or Osaka. Ive even heard people say that the Japanese are the "white men of the east." This is though, what Ive been told. I wont have first hand experience till I have visited for myself. Hopefully, I will be able to visit Tokyo, Osaka and Okinawa in one trip.

Japan is probably the only country in Asia where non-asian minorities get alot of love....

though if your a dark skinned foreigner the rest of Asia can be pretty harsh....

But doesn't most of the racism in Japan come from old people? You'd think the younger generations would be taught better.

Also, put a Japanese, a Korean, a Chinese, a Filipino, Vietnamese, Thai, Mongolian, Taiwanese, Malaysian, Indonesian, Laotian, and a Cambodian all in a lineup. I cannot tell who's which by sight alone; only by hearing their languages (Assuming they're all native-born) or looking at their surnames. There's no question that a Filipino will have a Spanish or perhaps Anglophone American surname. If it's something like Park, Gwak, Baek, or Kim, they're likely Korean; if it's something like Trinh or Nguyen, they're Vietnamese. If it's something vaguely Arabic-sounding, they're probably Malaysian/Indonesian. Japanese? Chinese? They've typically got up to two characters per name, and Chinese people's two given names are often joined together in English.
