“Why is your hair orange? You know dying your hair to that color is not allowed in Japan, right?”

First, my hair is not orange. Second, even if it is, it’s still a hair color that many people in this world naturally have. I thought to myself: “Had I had white skin, perhaps he wouldn’t have given me the same comment.”

Kids can't dye hair in Japanese schools. You're a teacher, so you're expected to be an example. By dying it you're just showing them you don't care about rules. White foreigners can get away with it because they have such color palettes, which don't give them away that easily.

The woman was illegal in Japan even though she was raised here the whole life. She could only speak Japanese, so we could assume the reason of the murder was to obtain a visa.
