So I've been sitting here wondering about how the rest of the world deals with racism in their country.

So for instance... Is it just westernized white countries who are constantly dealing with racism, is it just us being called racist all the time or is this going on in let's say... Japan?

Do people illegally immigrants to Japan and when they get deport or jailed by the Japanese government are the Japanese people considered racist? Would the Japanese people even care if they got called racist?

That's just one of many examples. I really am curious to get some insight into other countries and cultures.

I'm ignorant of other countries because I haven't traveled yet outside of the US and I mainly only get news from the Western perspective.

Thanks.

Wow,,,funny you should ask that...great special on PBS around race "Black in Latin America".

Crazy as it sounds it's nice to see that the United States is not the only one dealing with this issue...

What was their conclusion?

I've met many Latinos who don't like black people I never understood that but then again I just don't understand indiscriminate hate.

I have pretty much travelled all over the world. Been in many third world countries and enough places to know America, Europe, and others are great places to live.....Every country has their problems but ours are nothing compared to the majority of the worlds problems.

This is why I always laugh when some people whine and cry about how bad they have it in the USA and if things don't change their leaving.....BYE FELICIA!!!! Just leave your citizenship at the door....Shuts them up every time.

I am guessing that what race issues we see and experience in the west is due to European colonisation of other ethnic cultures .I cant see how Japan for instance would have the same issues inside Japan proper .Same for France or England for that matter .But where you see left over European Colonial Govt's like Canada or the US where the original peoples exist you see it more evident . The race divide or language divide is a useful tool for tptb . Even within the original tribes you see both a linguistic variant with well marked out territory boundaries . I think in the province of New Brunswick we have 3 to 4 individual groups . But you even see this kind of division within the French languages from Eastern Canada (Acadian) to Quebec to France its self . ETA ...I don't look at race that it should divide us because I consider all humans part of the same race .

My conclusion is people gravitate to people who share their interests, culture or beliefs...with that said some of those people reject those who do not share their culture, interests or beliefs...not sure how to address it but it's not all white people who are racist and we need to move forward acknowledging humanities screw ups and not penalize those who had nothing to do with certain periods of time...

I wonder how much racism is pointed to the Germans for the atrocities during the war? Any Germans out there who could chime in on this?


We will continue down this path because we are acknowledging the different cultures but we are also doing a bang up job isolating groups more and more...BET, Essence Awards, All Def Movie Awards, Hispanic Heritage Awards, Latin Music Awards, Blackcupid.com, The Oscars (Of Course). My point is that as much as people want to integrate we seem to push more and more for seclusion within the races.

In cities you have little Italy, Miami you have what amounts to a new Cuba, Chinatowns can be found in most be metropolises, you have Muslim communities popping up in major states and countries..

So as much as we say people want inclusion that's not the case. People want what white people have but do not necessarily want to be part of that white group..Some white people just don't get that and it took my buddy who is a black American to explain that to me...

So forget the hole idea of holding hands and singing songs together...people just want the same opportunities as others..unfortunately this means more isolation....

I conclude that people that are racist should just shut up. Yet, Iwould imagine all over the world there are those that will not. In the US it takes on a funny way of being able to show hate via excuse of A) free speech and b) relligious freedom or C) being hateful and racist while insulting those that are 'PC'.

Via laws, the 'Western world' is ahead. I don't think the US in general, though.

I read an article about a year or so ago about how Japanese people are notoriously discriminatory to anyone living in there country who doesn't look Japanese, even if they were born there... if you don't look like them, then you'll always be considered an outsider, apparently.

I'd imagine that most non-western countries would probably have the same mentality, to differing degree's.

That's what makes western countries superior, imo, we embrace multiculturalism and socially condemn all forms of racism... its not some big socialist agenda to frown on racist opinions, as some would have you believe. Its just an attempt by good people to help society rise above a primitive mentality that the human race is prone too.

Racism is prevalent in any and all countries since the beginning of time. That's my understanding. In the US we are allowed to speak freely about our feelings so it becomes more of a hot button issue when expressing personalized views to one another and all races are guilty.

In other countries there is still mass genocide being practiced so I'm pretty sure we have it better here, imo.

I think the US is way ahead of most of the world in terms of race relations. Unfortunately we do have groups of people who are legitimate racists and another group of people on the opposite end who are constantly making every issue about race.

It's the outliers on both sides who are the problem children.

I have never seen this video before, but it is right on target. That woman is an excellent teacher. I plan to look up more about her.
