Considering that many hiring managers look for incidents like this as potential reasons to not hire someone, I would not be surprised if this costs one of more of these drunken idiots a job later. Freedom of expression does not grant freedom from backlash or consequences.

You know whats funny? I constantly see Asian shows stereotyping and criticizing western culture. But I don't get mad and call them racist.

Take the anime Code Geass for example. This is basically a sci-fi retelling of when the USA occupied Japan. They're basically saying we're evil and had an unfair advantage because of demon tech created by Satan. (exaggeration but whatever)

That may not be the best example. But countless Asian media constantly insults westerners.

If this party is to be condemned for being racist... (which it is) Then perhaps westerners should condemn all Asians for wearing western style clothing EVERYDAY. And speaking poor English on TV.
Dam white people using chinese-made iphones and abusing the Japanese language.



Almost all tech Asians use was designed by western culture. You know those robotics Japanese are so famous for? All of the designs for their "groundbreaking" robotic breakthroughs were developed in the United States first. Of course.. they didn't go anywhere, so you have to at least give the Japanese credit for trying to take them somewhere. Even if they are a bunch of thieving bastards!

Some could argue that a lot of our modern tech was inspired by old Chinese tech and culture. So basically. We're all human. Humans hate each other.

Not directed at anyone in particular but race, nationality, and culture are different things. Americans, for example, are not a race of people.

Racist? I don't agree. Offensive? I can see that. If you find typing words out in a typical accent phonetic offensive, then sure. I mean this happens because some Asian languages don't have a "R" sound in their language and some have a hard time with a "Th" sound.

Same thing with German and the "Th" sound and people making it have a "Z" sound. "Zee Americans are coming!" What's the issue here?

I agree 100% with freedom of speech, but everything comes with a price. So be if you say then stand by it and take responsibility for what you say.It's really easy to be thoughtless, and just because you don't mean any harm does not mean you don't cause harm. Most people have been told at one time or another to think before you speak.

The two example shown here the Mexican party and the Asian party , everyone dressed as a peasant from the movies, Were there no other costume choices?
