    Well, let see. I had live in a country where most people shared the same religion, and all the cultures were kind of mixed together. We had not racial difference but social difference (money , education and that stuff). And now I live in the USA (where according to the movies it was a place of freedom and liverty0 but i encounter myself with many racists cituations (not towards me but towards other people), but i see that it is because of the eduation those people received during their lives. I have never lived in Japan, and i only now one japanese person here in the USA, had known many in the net. However, the only one person that i met here seems like a good person and wanted to fit into sociaty .He definately did not wanted stay inside his house i think because he did not wanted to become a hikikomori (or something like that). He told me once that after his graduation he only stayed at home watching anime and reading some manga since he had not many friends around the area ( i had work and college so not much time to hang out with me), so he decided to go back to japan.
    Now something happened here as I was walking with him in the mall before he left usa for the first time he told me "I gotta get ready I can't go to japan with this N... clothes" I was surprised he expressed himself like that that since I thought he liked to dressed like that. I ask him why did he say such a word he told me because everybody uses it. Interesting since most of the people he normally talk were not african- americans at all. So before he left he cut his hair, got kaki pants and old navy stuff and left to japan.
    I do not know if he still with that kind of crowd, since i do not talk as often with him as before because of yeah college and work. The only think i remeber he once told me is that after he would not work here or have a family here since he wants to mary a japanese girl (he told me is easier totalk with them). Its being at least 6 months since the last time i talk to him since then.
    In my personal opinion I do not think Japanese are racist, I think is because they have not had enough contact with the rest of the world. I mean yeah they now U.S.A. but only af hollywood portrays it, right? and the same goes with the rest of the world. Now if we see the way they speak in the manga, since they have not had enough interaction then their language have not other way to express what they want to say. Granted that if someone do something bad to a Japanese then the Japanese would react in a very efusive way. And the English students were not very friendly with the class of school rumble either.
    Also in some chapter the English people are portrayed as very good persons. Remember that Hanai was attacked by the racoon, it was an English student the one that brought him to Japan with him.

    And i find LALA hilarious ( and i am latino )

    So my two cents is that No Japanese people are not racist.

    i see, i understand why he would want to go to japan... especially if he felt so lonely i hope hes having a good time
    btw i recommend you watch "Welcome to the NHK" an anime about a Hikkikomori, its really good

    and yes Lala is funny (also Latino)

    Everyone need friends. But everyone need foes as well. Thats in human nature, thats normal. Bad but normal.
    No, I don't mean it like that, but nice and honest to everyone.... Im myself haven't met such people but I striving to be like that(it's very very difficult)

    It's impossible to be like that. Simly impossible. And no use at all.

    Human hates things which are diffrent that he believes is right
    1) If you believe that it's very important to keep your house clean, and see that someone doesn't do that (because he is too lazy or maybe he feels more confortable in a little untidness), you start to dislike him
    2) You have a wife and your neighboor have 10... and he actually treat his wives diffrently than you. Because you can't understand that, you can't accept, and you start to dislike this person
    3) Smoker and non-smoker, Vegeterian and Meat-eater, people who eats dogs and those who doesn't (tell me seriously, what do you think about eating a dog, there is lot's of countries where they do that and they say that they are tasty, but mostly people are offended just thinking it is done by someone)
    4) The way you work - in many places (or you could even say in diffrent countries) there is always a diffrent way of seeing the working routine.
    For example : Most people missunderstands "Siesta" as a way to get away from job (isn't it in most movies/films than mexicans or spanish look lazy and unwilling to work.. so untrue)
    5) many more, right now can't think off..

    Racism is about inability to understand diffrence between to nations thing aboutculture/believes
    And about the thing that humans are fucked up, yep, that's true, but so what ?? Does it mean we can't do anything about it ??
    Because if we won't do anything, we will have like oly one soluton... world war 3 ??

    No world war 3 is too expensive it won't happen
    Well we must try but it goes for everyone. For example:
    vegeterians are stupid to my mind but i don't hate them
    i don't smoke but half of my friends do
    i don't dislike people with another skin olour
    and so on
    but it goes to me not to everyone, unfortunately
    i mean it's hard to change human nature.

    yes it's difficult (very) but not impossible, and if you haven't seen a "real" Human or Man(the ideal we all think of) it doesn't mean he dion't exist, it's just your close-minded or simply pessimistic view of the world, but Im sure such people do xist, yes there are that much of them(I haven't seen a real one). It's a holy people to meet with whom we must deserve it or so I believe, but Im trying to become one in the first place: for example I don't mind people who are different(skin colour, nationality etc.) or 've got different from mine habbits(smoking) I've gone beyond that point(of course it cost me some work) but at the current time I just can't tolerate unpleasant people(people with whom I feel really bad or whose character just piss me off) to understand them(truly understand) there is much work to be done

    Pessimists are well-informed optimists.
    You are free to belive in what you want, talks about "ideal people" and such are useless coz we cannot prove anything (no facts).

    The only conclusion that i'm sure in is the following:
    THERE ARE NO RASISTS IN SCHOOL RUMBLE SECTION.
    Thats good!
