Dialect done, done right, is funny. It's not racist. It's just teasing. Now, as I don't speak Japanese a lot of this bit went over my head but I liked the idea. It made me smile. So well done Ishii-san.

He's lived in Japan for 30 YEARS & is FLUENT. The fault is not on his side. & we ALL know this. ----- PS I am aware of the USA's "sterling" record on race. If it's wrong in one country it's wrong in the other.

It was a horrible weapon & a horrible thing to do. But the other inevitable choice was an invasion which would have made Japan a nation of corpses. They were training civilians to fight a modern army with spears or to run at tanks with explosives!!! Invasion would have been the other horrible choice. As it was, Japan was cauterized, a war ended, & a nation got to survive. There were two horrible choices, & the one less horrible taken.

I had only thought of Russell as a whirlwind, passionate about what he is doing of course. It is a wonderful revelation to learn that he thinks about all the aspects of the business.

Posted in: Have you ever experienced racism or sexual harassment? If so, what did you do about it at the time? See in context

When I lived in Japan as a child, I had friends of all shades & hues. We were all Americans together. Then the family moved to Hawaii. There was a boy named Harold Harada. I learned his name later on, byt my first day of school, he ran up to me & said "Get [out] of here, white trash." It was the nicest thing he ever said to me, over the next two years we were in the 50th state.

Harming these gentle creatures would be an unforgiveable atrocity. I hope those folks making the case will appeal as far as they can, even to the Supreme Court. In the mean time, perhaps they can get some sort of stay, to suspend construction for the time being?
