Posted in: Tokyo reports 206 new coronavirus cases See in context

206 is just a tip of the iceberg. We know they are doing no testing here, virtually none, no contact tracing, no nothing, with the hope that the numbers will remain low, 2021 will roll around and boom Tokyo Olympics will be here with us.

Posted in: Tokyo riot police officer dies after apparently shooting himself See in context

Stress from work, bullying by his bosses, threatened by the far right in Japan for guarding a pro North Korean organization, mental health issues, etc many things can cause him to shoot himself.

Sounds like suicide to me. Coward, not willing to take responsibility and be held accountable to that sexual harassment accusation.

Interesting. Here is s man who cannot CLIM nor descend s ramp, who cannot lift a drink with one hand, a man who is so obese and doesn't exercise and eats double cheese burger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner accusing someone who jogs every time of I'll health.

Posted in: Naomi Osaka called racist after posting meme in response to COVID-19 cases See in context

Japanese people should be very proud of Naomi instead of accusing her of being racist. Naomi is Japanese and Asian, so how can she make racist jokes about Asians? It is Japanese who commit racist acts against people of mixed Japanese heritage everyday.

Posted in: Arrest of ex-justice minister could hasten Abe's departure See in context

Ishiba is the guy. He is smart, intelligent, popular with the Japanese electorate but unfortunately had weak support within the LDP Diet members. Ishiba is a policy wonk and has a near perfect grip on the issues. I wish Nikai would help him to win hearts within the LDP and become the next PM.

Posted in: Singer Hikaru Utada opens a discussion on racism on Japanese Twitter See in context

Who says there is no racism in Japan? It exists in all its forms. As a student in Tokyo in 1993, I was turned away from a restaurant when I wanted to have lunch. I am black African, and I couldn't get an apartment to rent then. Not much has changed then. Even in 2020, you often hear " gaikokujin dame" when it comes to renting a place to lay your head. It was/is hard getting hired by any company even if you were the smartest guy at the interview. Some companies would tell you to pretend to be an American and would give you an Anglicized name in the office in order to maintain what they called a certain level of 'civility' in the face of a prestigious client. This feeds discrimination right on the job and you are given little or no chance of advancement on the job. The ride on the train when Japanese people shun seats occupied by foreigners, the usual cry of "kokujin was kowaii", the racial profiling of the Japanese police particularly in the entertainment districts of Roppongi, Kabukicho, Ginza, Susukino etc and the constant calling of the police by your neighbours on you for no reason etc All these and many more are evidence of racism in Japan. It is directed at all foreigners and I must say other Asians perhaps experience it more.

Posted in: Japan wants U.S. to extradite Americans who helped Ghosn flee See in context

The prosecutors it appears do not understand the Japanese laws under which they operate. Where in the Japanese criminal code is bail jumping listed as a crime? Helping someone jump bail is not a crime in Japan. If anything at all, the Taylors may be charged with a minor immigration infraction which is not extraditable offence.

Posted in: NHK removes video on U.S. protests after online outrage about depiction of African Americans See in context

Stupid, stupid, stupid. Shamelessly stupid NHK. How can you set off to explain what's happening now without even mentioning George Floyd and police brutality in America. NHK is dumb and must be closed down or the whole staff needs education. Useless piece of phony national broadcaster wasting tax payers money. They must apologize for their racism and insensitivity towards all blacks. SHAME !!! And heads must roll !!!
