LOL I've been to Japan!!!! AS well as dozen of other students who all agree with me. Besides I love Japan, that's why I'm studying it. but it's the cold hard truth that in comparison they are very racist. I didn't even think they were before, but ironically because I am studying Japanese culture you kinda find out that they actually are, maybe racist is the wrong word but they do have a lot of opinions about gaijins (means foreigner and is kinda used as a demeaning word) which are totally unfounded.

racist does seem like the wrong word because having a bunch of unfounded opinions on groups of people you've never met in person is pretty much par for the course.  That's why people think French people smell, Americans all love guns, and Asian people all have small penises (yes, even the women). 

Yes, but next to unfounded opinions they do often look down on outsiders. It's the truth, I don't know why we should sugarcoat it???

Microsoft may just give up on Japan and focus elsewhere on a less Xenophobia region.

I'm shocked that statements like these are still made.


It's bullshit he is banned over this, because although a generalisation it's mostly true. And this is coming from someone who is studying Japanese culture and language. Japanese are in comparison very racist!!!!! Only the ones who are open minded enough to come to the west en experience how things work here are vastly less close minded. Just look at what the producer of the new RE has to say about westerners here.

 

"To be honest, I had my own impression about Western people - being laid back and sitting on sofas, but even yesterday they came in early, on a Sunday, and gave us all sorts of recommendations. They wanted to do it, rather than being dragged out of bed if you like. So they've completely changed my perception about working with Western developers."


Then maybe you should go over to Japan to work with them.  It might change your perception.  Because we all know that ONE person of a society dictates the stigma of an ENTIRE people.

All the Japanese people I know are opened minded and NOT racist such as... my family.


read my edit, maybe racist is the wrong word. but they do have some sort of god complex over they're own ethnicity. Almost every body who has it's masters degree in Japanese culture would agree with me. I don't hate Japanese, I actually quite like them and they're mindset (maybe even because they have that god complex), otherwise I wouldn't study it any more now would I?


It's about preservation of culture, NOT skin color.  You wouldn't "understand" with your "American" attitude.  Opps. Was that "racist?"

I would say there's a difference between sugar coating their dislike of foreigners and not calling them xenophobic.  Especially using this supposed Xenophobia as an excuse for the 360's lackluster sales in the area.

It's kind of like if I wanted to say that 360's sell best in the US because Americans are stupid, and then in support of that I showed you how they perform poorly based on standardized tests for math and science.  Just because I can bring some support towards a conclusion doesn't mean I should insult an entire country of people just as an excuse for a console's sales.

yes but in the case of Japan that's almost the same. And actually I do understand, the Japanese are constantly trying to define themselves and what Japanese really means. And I am not American, I'm Dutch and we here do kind of the same thing actually.

I decided to put that last part in there after figuring out I had put the phrase "Asian people all have small penises" in my post.

Ok can agree on that somewhat, he may have used the argument for the wrong reasons.
