I don't think it's racism. Most of the stuff you refer to I see it on shows like Tosh.0 or other shows that have video clips. I do see a lot of WACKY JAPAN stuff, but mostly on the net. Some might get the idea that Japan is like that.But if you've ever lived abroad you realize how different it was your idea of the life here or there. You might be surprised how many people think Americans eat hamburgers everyday or that they're all blonde/blue eyed. When I clicked on your link I was thinking of something like this:

I wise man once said their are two things in this world that are infinite- the universe and human stupidity.

People aren't ignorantly because they choose to be, they just haven't learn- so you either teach them or let them continue through their lives never really knowing.

This is really just a correction not a argument but...
Japanese is a race. Also your example would be prejudice not racism.


As for my opinion on Anti-Japaneseism...

I would assume that since the only information they receive about Japan creates a negative image of Japan they would only carry negative connotations attached to their idea of the nation.

Here are some things I've heard about a bunch of countries

Japan - Land of weird people obsessed with details and creative fetishes
Mexico - Half poor, half drug cartel
Thailand - Xenophobic people, streets full of thieves and 'working' women who might be men
USA - Loud, ignorant, fat, complainers with guns
China - Land of the selfish and the fake
Britain - Tea, biscuits, and an accent that makes you sound sophisticated
France - Hairy women, bread, and the Eiffel Tower
Egypt - King Tut and pyramids and mummies
Canada - Everyone is super beta and apologetic
Korea - Kimchi and girl bands and gamers

Yup

Just saying there are restaurants in Japan that only serve Japanese people and they kick you out if you aren't. Racism goes both ways and it's disgusting, but I don't know of any place in America that would kick you out because of your race.

I have a feeling that it may be that those wild and crazy TV shows are probably from a cable TV channel similar to Adult Swim. I just got done watching both seasons of Genshiken, and I have to say that I came away thinking, 1) Japanese people don't think well of Japanese Otaku people. 2) Japanese people get just as weirded out by some of that craziness as we do. In season 2 of Genshiken, Ohno, the cosplaying girl, had two of her American friends visit her for Comi-Fes. They were so Otaku, that Ohno spent a lot of time trying to tone them down. So, it seems that Japanese people think that American Otaku are even weirder than Japanese Otaku.

Well, that 's a lot to assume from one anime series, but I think it might be a telling clue that I may not be too far off the mark.

I dont like Japan because it has extremely harsh expectations of their people. That is why it has one of the largest numbers of suicides per year and has such a freaky red-light district compared to other countries.


Also it's grossly polluted, overpopulated and the people there are too reserved.

I watch anime, and look at manga because they are more mature and have an art style that I like. I don't care about Japan.
