    Yes, and I freaking went to school in Japan. In 2 different locations. For a few years each! At first, they are polite, because they find you curious, but than they show you their racism. I think my statement should be more accepted than those of your friends. Unless you happen to have friends that aren't japanese that have lived there.

    Woah there buddy... looks like a hit a nerve somewhere. >.>

    I'll take your opinion and my friends. And either way I'll come to the conclusion that the actions of some don't dictate the actions of all. It's like saying all Americans hate people from the Middle East. Or that all white people are rednecks. And so on and so on... the point is moot, so I digress.

    Isn't the language have inherit racism in it? Like they'll say "you speak well for a foreigner" but it can be interpreted as a negative thing, or something? I don't know. I'm playing "Death is Not an Option" with a friend of mine right now.

    Honestly, it's because what country do you here about the most? America. Think about it, on the news, besides your own affairs (and England here I guess cause well.....we stalk them) what are you going to hear about the most? America. That doesn't make it greater than any other country ( nor does it veery exist keep the rest of us safe......that's just plain patronizing)
    Candians and Brazilians, stop complaining. Never ONCE has ireland appeared in a manga. Take it in your stride and say......one day we will breed all other nationalities out.

    Its because the government is republican (aka facist), they are big, and they are very very evil.

Plus, when you are the most powerful nation in the world, people tend to view that as a threat to themselves. After all, "To stand at the top of the world is to stand alone."

    well...i might agree to what you said and it is quite right.......and i wouldn't blame the Japanese after what they saw of the size of destruction that happened after bombing two Cities with Atomic Bombs.
