" More French bashing from America and Americans. "

Firstly, there is no bashing going on and second it is not just Americans making comments about this guy. As a Canadian, I find this man's supposed actions deplorable. Secondly, it is disturbing to see the muted response from the usual rabble- rousers who prejudicially prefer to pick only at one nationality.

"Respect and embrace differences: An educator’s lesson" Yes. That is novel idea in theme-minded Japan. A lesson that has now been taught in the West for many decades now and who knows maybe even in ancient times, too. I have a bad feeling that the Japanese Government will do everything within its powers to extinguish this presumably silly notion.

Can't say I disagree since these people of privilege live off of the backs of the common person within their Commonwealth. It infuriates me that Canadians are forced to pay into this gangster type system irregardless.

I shall venture to guess that Omar bin Laden never questioned his father's killings of many innocent people (Muslim or non-Muslim) around the world.

It is too bad that people of Japanese ethnicity and anyone else choose to segregate themselves by putting a hyphen between their race and and nationality. In my opinion people are Canadian, not Japanese-Canadian or American, not Japanese-American. I gather if this didn't happen then maybe there would be more unity in society instead of self-inflicted segregation.

"What makes you think they will face any discrimination?" Strange comment. Discrimination exists in every society. England is rife with it. Japan is not any different than any other country. Japan shall not be overlooked in this case.

cleo's response to another comment: "No they weren't. Their mother took them back to their native land, the land where they had spent most of their lives.

Chris Savoie's comment earlier on this thread: "Isaac was not "born and raised in Japan". He was born in Palo Alto CA at Stanford Hospital. He had attended schools in the UK, U.S. and Japan but NEVER attended a school where Japanese was the primary language of instruction, so saying they are completely Japanese is a flat out lie and is misleading. He scored in the 98th percentile in standardized English tests in the U.S. But he couldn't read and write kanji at his grade level in Japan for obvious reasons."

It is not up to anyone to decide where the children may think they are from. I know Japanese people who live where they live now but their family origins are from another area so therefore they say they are from wherever their family roots originate. The children were in fact born in California. I know Japanese kids who spent a portion of their lives in other countries only to come back to feel foreign. Some never seem to fit in and end up in international schools or heaven forbid the British school in Japan.

You also say: " These kids are not 'abducted Americans in Japan'. They are half-Japanese, half American kids raised in Japan...."

You should also be so easily willing to confront a Japanese person in the same tone who may say that these children are Japanese to remind them that these children are American and also Japanese. I have come across that a number of times in relation to Canadian children who have been abducted by their Japanese parent. When trying to rationally and logically discuss this issue with a Japanese person, the Japanese person almost always says that the child is Japanese only. I can only feel sorrowful for the selfish state of mind of the average Japanese person and others who may have the same line of thinking.

The tone of "dragged" is not fitting to what actually happened.

Chris Savoie told you how and why they went to Tennessee. Refer to his comment as stated earlier on this thread. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I think you don't know the day to day lives of these people and that you were not there as these events unfolded. I have now lived next to the same people for years and unfortunately I don't know them well at all.

However, I do agree with you on the homicide thing. That was a bit overdone or was it? People should not discount the happenings in Japan, yet it does diminish the chances a little bit since they do not live in the U.K. anymore so in a sense you may be somewhat right.

Posted in: America feels ready to snap See in context

This is a pathetic commentary.

Zenny, while there are people in America who are having financial troubles there are a lot of others who are doing very well. I'm from Hamilton, Ontario Canada close to the Canada-U.S. border. I have family and friends in the U.S. and they are all doing well. It goads many that the U.S. is the global engine and has been so for a very long time. Americans bought goods from all over the world to help prop up the global economy. The rest of the world is just as guilty as the buy now pay later mentality that a lot in the U.S. had. Certainly British companies knew very well what was going on yet I constantly hear Brits whine about what the Yanks did to the global economy. From my perspective it is hard to stomach the verbal slagging the Americans get from everyone else especially when they are guilty too, especially the Europeans and Japanese who rely heavily on the Americans to buy their goods. This article is shameful as is the constant slagging the Americans get from the people who sell them their goods.

Posted in: Rallies over mosque near ground zero get heated See in context

There are lots of Canadians who believe that the Mosque should not be built at that location as some of the Europeans who I know. Just for the record.

No one is saying don't build a mosque, they are just requesting that they don't build it there.

Religious tolerance in America and the West is light years ahead of the Middle East. Other religions which are not Muslim are not tolerated and the few liberal M.E. countries which do tolerate other religions see the non practicing Muslims persecuted.

@Tigermoth "Very true, but the problems in the Middle East go way back before the western nations began exploiting the region, enforcing colonial rule and generally mucking about in their affairs. I don't even know if I'd conclude that America is the worst offender."

Muslims were mucking about with other peoples, nations, regions well before Westerners came into town. As far as America goes as being common hoodlum, you were much more gentlemanly than say England.

It certainly would be refreshing if the NAACP took a good hard look at itself to realize that they are the ones who tolerate bigotry, but then again I reckon supporting all black schools is not discriminatory at all.

Posted in: Ronald McDonald under fire from child obesity opponents See in context

I've long been tired of people complaining about fast food restaurants. No one is forcing anyone to eat fast food. I just got back from a trip in the mountains in Japan and there was not one McDonanlds nor Lotteria or any of Japan's other fast food franchises within tens of kilometers and some of the local kids were definitely on the fat side. No one is touting fast food as health food so to solely blame one industry as the cause of obesity or health problems is a tad out of touch.

Japan provides you with a feeling of safety which is not the same as being safe otherwise there would be absolutely no crime and other dangerous things happening in Japan.

Posted in: How safe do you think Japanese society is, compared to other countries? See in context

The question about Japan being safe has changed. It used to be that Japan was incorrectly seen as a superlative as in the safest country. I no longer hear this from people. The obvious truth about Japan is that it is no more dangerous nor no safer than any country. The question of what is safe has to be raised. Is it personal safety or does it have to do with car accidents or natural disasters or public health risks such as smoking or any others dangers that are posed to you? In that sense, Japan is very average.
