Englishman here, what do the Japanese think of us? Would I be allowed to come to your country and work? Would you be okay with an Englishman in your country or would you feel bad about it? Would I be forgiven more easily for making a mistake than say, an Africans or an Arab? Also, would I be considered more attractive to the ladies over there? Or would people think I am strange and in a foreign land where I have no place to be?

Also, some asians have called me a colonist and a terrorist, what the hell does that mean? I haven't terrorised anyone and my political views are common sense and flexible, but I also believe that some kinds of people are just not meant to be around with other people, and I'm okay with that.

They love white Americans a lot. British and French somewhat too. I really cannot for the life of me figure out why but oh well.
They'll want to talk to you, say "herro" a lot, but won't want you to actually live there or try to get housing. If are there for a while, your novelty will wear off and they will start asking "when are you going home?"

But there isn't really. The only reason skin color is an issue with a few stupid people is because they make it an issue.

dont mind.

But that's wrong! Treating someone different because of their skin color is wrong. What about eye color? Or hair color?
Just because >>1 is white does not mean he will automatically have a hard time understanding Japanese culture.

Only colonial countries and white people in the developed world are told to act like this, for the majority of the world's population their ethnicity is about as important as family or religion.

That seems to be breaking down somewhat due to Western influence in general.

12.16 Japanese election is fraud

Only because they are gaining respect, not because Japan does not see race.

If a Japanese daughter brings home a black American 6 figs tax lawyer the family will most likely be excited for her, she will be a high flying sophisticated internationalist, get US citizenship and a US job, fly back and forth from New York bringing her mixed race babies to meet their Japanese side, live in a penthouse apartment and eat burger.

If Tokyo had a ghetto with 80% unemployment and high crime rates then Japan would be told "don't judge people by the color of their skin" so they don't "make it an issue". The Japanese daughter would take home a wannabe "gangsta" because the media told her it is cool and fashionable and her parents would have fake smiles on their faces as they watch their daughter trade herself down for someone she doesn't really love and end up a single mother.

The question is too general, methinks. Some Japanese think this, others think that. And after all, how else it could be.

12 Name: Citizen : 2013-03-29 05:32 ID:Yr7ABDH8

They would prefer not to spend any time with them

Like how most Americans feel about black people

"Fact opinion" is my new favorite phrase. Even though I don't know what it means.

I am Japanese.

Please come and see.
If you like us, we also like you. Quite simple.
It is no problem where are you from. We will not judge by your color or your country.
We never see you as colonist and a terrorist.
If you are good man, we see you as a good man. If you do bad
thing, we see you as a bad man. we have no prejudice.

If you want to live here, of course there are many cultural differences (enjoy the differences), the main problem is your job in Japan. Do you have any idea?

Most Japanese are shy to speak English but if you speak slowly and simply, you can communicate with us. Because we all learn English for at least 6 years!(but we can not good at English)

And we like the words, 'please', 'sorry', and 'maybe'. Let's learn these word in Japanese.
