Superb Thank you from Brisbane Australia

I live in Canada A country that largely has no defining race (yes I know the white population is in the majority) We have all kinds of folk come from every corner of the earth What is interesting is this when they come here, they want to become Canadian They want to follow our traditions and way of life I had the joy of watching a Canadian citizenship ceremony earlier this year People were wearing red, had a maple leaf pin on their jacket or had a red and white turban on One family actually were wearing Team Canada hockey jerseys and mittens with maple leaves on them If I was immigrating to Japan, I'd do the same I'd want to embrace the language, the culture and quite honestly Shinto Race does not define a country anymore Language & traditions do If people come to a country and want to make it better, but also preserve the culture, why would immigration be bad? Western society seems to love the Japanese culture anyway

I have a better understanding about the Japanese, so I am glad I watched the series I conclude that we have more in common as human beings than what divides us We have the same universal need for God, emotional support, and physical support, which means that we can get along if we focus on our commonalities instead of division with God's help FYI- My young niece likes Hello Kitty and Animes

Interesting piece But “the nail that sticks out” isn’t necessarily what individualism is, no? Everyone finding his/her own personality is just a stick being its inherent, and different, self That personality as identified has not stuck its neck out above anyone else

So, the inner self of the Japanese culture has not changed, since the beginning Thats interesting Its not a bad thing They want to keep their Japanese ancestry

I think Japan should control how many foreigners it has there Parts of Sweden, Belgium, UK are changed for the worse I live in Birmingham UK There are many areas of the city where you could be in Pakistan or Africa It's not just ordering a takeaway or eating Indian food but when Churches close down and pubs because the original community ages, dies or leaves you get mosques and Halal butchers Then the kids of the immigrants eventually get into politics and start demanding the country bends to their cultural requirements Dangerous situation I once met a Korean friend at the airport and we took the bus through Tottenham and South London her face was amazed, I think very shocked what she saw It wasn't the Britain you see in Hollywood films

I hate this whole demonizing of people who want to preserve their ethnicity and their culture The dude has a point why should the entire country prioritize the minority of the minority in Japan over the majority? They want the same rights as everyone else, yeah that’s how it always starts out then they start asking for more and more That’s just how it is people who feel like they are at the bottom or are being outcasted are always going to reach for more than what they should, it’s human nature You give people an inch and they’ll take a mile

Being anti China is different than being anti Chinese That was a poor take insinuating that those Japanese protesters are racist

Comment from : SrtjAv

My friend's father works in Japan, and he's Chinese as well Countless years of blood, sweat and tears put into Japan and there are still people who think that minorities don't deserve to be there it's utterly disgusting what these nationalists are preaching And not only that, all the taxes he has paid don't grant him a pension just because he's a foreigner The older generation of Japan is a conservative society living in a modern world, sooner or later they'll have to change their ways or disappear from society Plus, I don't think Japan remembers what they did to the Chinese, wanting to go back to a nationalistic society shows that I hope the younger generation doesn't carry on these twisted ideals At least it seems like they're slowly heading to the right direction

I would say Japan is making good progress at accepting other races I heard many stories from half-Japanese people at Nobita From Japan

well made documentary has about 250,000 views Now if you make a documentary "Do Japanese Girls Like Western Men?" BOOM! you'd have at least 1 million views
Comment from : Joji Ryu Kasu

If Japan becomes a "melting pot" it waters down the Japanese look and robs them of their global uniqueness Let foreigners visit as tourists but live somewhere else

wow, that nationlist japan first guy, doesn't want to be a minority because he doesn't want to be treated the way he wants to treat minorities well then
Comment from : cetriyas Art n Comics Channel

cetriyas Art n Comics Channel
The number of pure japanse aren't going down cause of immigration, its going down cause they over worked themselves and aren't breeding So stopping immigration now will just open up the country for others to just land grab since no one is there Plus it doesn't stop the japanese themselves from leaving the country in order to find work and life partners

Abe Midoriya
Everybody wants a piece of japan Just japan alone lol If japanese do not want foreigners in their country, that is their right Plus, the more aliens live in japan, the more likely it is for their culture to be corrupted, so to speak I love Japan and it would be horrible to see their traditions forgotten and swapped for western pop culture trash
Comment from : Abe Midoriya

Tricia Hutchins
It's interesting that the man who wanted to get rid of all foreign influence in Japan was wearing a Western-style business suit
Comment from : Tricia Hutchins

Yet those same modals are living in Japan with everything they need and getting paid and still trying to blame , why can’t you just be happy with the way things are ? It’s not the west , where it’s used to this , it’s Japan , with hundreds to thousands of years of culture and has not experienced foreigners until recently in history , I’m surprised they don’t try to understand the Japanese mentality at all , If you know the culture is very conservative with its traditions then try to be happy to live in it and enjoy your experiences as much as possible , the Japanese people will slowly change with time and naturally accept others more openly , but forcing this future on them now will only make them more apprehensive It’s Patience , people in the west want instant gratification
Comment from : AR

Why is it a shame to lose Japanese history if the traditions and legacies were not carried on, but value to be true Japanese can be faded? I don't think Sakurai (conservative) was presented fairly compared to Yamamoto(democrats) on this show

Sooooooooooooooo that japan first dude basically said 'hafu' don't matter Also that they are a minority (i don't know how many half japanese there) so like any minority they aren't important - according to him + He himself doesn't want to be a ''minority'' so that he doesn't get the treatment he's showing to other minorities
Comment from : Aisma Meijere-Cirša

Aisma Meijere-Cirša
21:16 "So to keep badgering on about how they're Ainu or Ryukyu is a mistake" Sounds wrong to me Ainu and Ryukyu are groups of their own So lumping them together with Yamato seems wrong Wikipedia - Okinawa, though part of , is an island so distinct that it maintains an identity all its own, yet, in protecting its culture from outside influences, it's had little trouble It's been part of  for a “mere” 135 years, so it's  surprising that  are less attuned to the  customs of the north Also wikipedia -  also known as the Ezo (蝦夷) in historical Japanese texts, are an East Asian ethnic group indigenous to northern Japan, the original inhabitants of Hokkaido only fully incorporated into the  state in 1869 following the Meiji Restoration (1868), after which  settlers colonized the island beyond Wajinchi

16:20 , this laugh will turn into gloom when the world will realize coronavirus was manmade and Xi Jinping really was at the helm of it all Of course this is no reason for racism, but hate for CCP is valid

Lucia Fiero
They aren't saying they are anti China They are saying they are anti-Chinese Communism A lot of ethnically Chinese people are also anti-Chinese communism and communism in general There are plenty of Chinese nationals who are critical of Xi and his administration Being anti-communist or anti Xi doesn't make people bigots, or "right wing," any more than opposing Trump makes someone "unAmerican" or "anti-white" There is a whole political spectrum between Marxist and right wing nationalist Binary thinking is not useful unless your intention is to silence and shame dissenters

Define idiocy, when you do something over and over, knowing it is what made the group or individual that way and successfully failed Rather be an idiot by myself, cause I can always change than be with a group that is hated and disrespected by many Purity isn't just in the bodyalso in the mind and spirit If you understand what I mean

Note, the saying the nail that sticks out is the one that gets hammered He thinks Japan and the Japanese aren't proud to be Japanese The people who are the proudest Japanese are the ones that are sharing there culture Boosting the economy, idioticso dumb Mind of an intolerable child He thinks culture is gonna go awayhahahalol 😒😒😒🤔 Any waysspeaking to closed ears That's what you call weakness in your own true self

She isn't use to it because she didn't have her childhood there She grew up in a more professional environment of diversity This is one thing diversity will always find weird childish and out of style It isn't seen as mature in a diverse culture When I were just an anime shirt people already find it weird

Comment from : Eduard Gherasim

Comment from : apayagamin

Have you noticed that xenophobes, racists and those who fight for wrong causes generally are ugly and miserable but positive, open people are beautiful, funny, strong and versatile? Just look at 18:04, these men look like they are going to die the next day and their souls seem so repellent

Based Horizons
They should've showed Billy Blanks and interviewed him He's married to a Japanese woman and his daughter is hafu They also have a place in Japan they go to regularly So so see if its effected his daughter and his wife when people find out she's married to a black man and has a hafu daughter
Comment from : Based Horizons

Based Horizons
Gotta admit, Japan is and has been pretty racist especially toward black people Its been like that and hopefully after 30 years, it will end
Comment from : Based Horizons

That one anti racist protestor dude, bless his heart, I was only listening to the audio not reading the subtitles at that point and it sounded to me like he was saying "Racist Okay, Racist Okay"lol, sorry buddy , keep up the good work brAlso Gwen Stefani popularised Japanese Kawaii culture to the US? if you say so I thought Anime and computer games already did that before her

“They probably want to prevent it but” sadly yes but you’re not winning anyone over with that logic I have many heroes in Japan but their treatment of gaijin or hafu really not cool one bit
Comment from : M R

It’s oddly comforting to know Japan is also confronting racism within their nation It’s gone nowhere, and it continues to negatively impact lives through no fault of their own Nobody chooses their racial identity, and this fact should bring humanity together We use it to tear us apart instead We kind of suck as a species, especially when the solution is only a shift in perspective on an individual level

Juci Shockwave
Try being disabled than come to me about inequality Despite my education and hard work ethics, no matter where I go I am "Autistic" not human or have the right like everyone else It doesn't matter what nation I go or what have you, if you are disable, you are automatically shut down Societies still don't value the disable, even if we have something worthwhile and interesting to offer Again, doesn't matter your skin color, hair color, nationality if you are disable you are treated less human than everyone else You are especially treated less human by your own kin and nationality 😣😥

The nationalist guy is wright As a white person I am not allowed to say I am proud to be white because is a racist statement Japanese people should not become a minority because their precious culture, cherished and proteczed by so many will be lost and this is not a loss only for Japanese people but for the entire world
