Posted in: Afro-textured hair in Japan: Decolonizing the Afro See in context

Why does the author have to mention "demolishing eurocentric ideals of beauty and decolonizing the afro"? As if one culture is better or worse than another? Can we please get past all this anti-white b.s. We all enough space in our heads to love EVERY culture.

Why do the Taliban and other authoritarian govts force women to cover their heads in public? Control, thats why. Some people do not desire to live a life dictated by others.

Posted in: White nationalism upsurge in U.S. echoes historical pattern, say scholars See in context

Most Americans, regardless of skin color, are sick and tired of antifa/blm scum burning cities, destroying businesses, and attacking random people minding their own business. These people are mentally sick (and have the full support of the Democrat party). But you failed to mention any of that.

Posted in: Which country or countries do you think will emerge the strongest and most influential in the post-coronavirus new world order? See in context

@kohakuebisu

The death toll in the US from the ccp virus is nowhere near 0.5% of the population. Where did you get that from? Check what the US CDC recently published showing only 6% of the reported 185,000 deaths (~11,000 people) were from Covid 19 alone. We are all being lied to.

Posted in: Tokyo man arrested for kidnapping 9-year-old girl he met via online game See in context

This stikes home for me, I have a 9 year old daughter as well. We didnt have all this tech bs when I grew up, and outside of educational apps its all a bunch of brain drain, time wasting garbage. Hopefully ill never have to hear about something like this happening to one of my kids. The last thing this piece of s*** would have to worry about are the cops.

Yawn, this daily reporting of cases is getting old. I think we all get it, people get sick everyday. Time to move on to something else.

Posted in: Biden, Harris lash out at Trump at debut of historic VP choice See in context

Kamala seemed so upset at Joe during the debates, with that racial segregation history and all. Btw, if you dont know who Strom Thurmond was, check him and Biden's relationship out. Funny how she would even consider accepting such an offer to be his VP.

But alas, if Biden becomes president, he will not be running the show. Biden and Kamala will do exactly as they are told by their DNC/Wallstreet bosses.

Well there you have it, Biden's handlers just gave Trump/Pence another 4 more years!

Imagine being the person responsible for feeding this a-hole. They should just hurry up and hang him already.

Checked the wife's account yesterday, ¥700,000 received. 5 kids is a lot, but maybe we should have more if the gov't here is just gonna throw money around.

Posted in: Vertical farming takes off in aging Japan See in context

Wow, lettuce, tomatoes and some strawberries. That's great. You can feed a whole lot of people with those.

Guess what crops won't be grow indoors (using huge amounts of resources btw): potatoes, corn, wheat, beans, pumpkins, peanuts, eggplants, blueberries, apples, pears, okra, bananas, peaches, mangoes, radishes, onions, carrots, melons, rice, you get the point. Pretty much everything else that requires the Sun.

If all the old farmers are hitting the bucket or unable to do the work, maybe younger people need to reevaluate their lives and realize that someone has to grow the food they eat. Less time in the office and more time in the fields.

Posted in: American farmers hail U.S.-Japan trade deal to gain competitiveness See in context

Just so you know what kind of "quality" products you're getting from farmers in the States, all that corn (over 90%) is GMO seed. The fields, before planting, are covered in the feces of millions of people from the cities. Then those same plants are sprayed repeatedly with cancer causing and bee killing pesticides. After harvest, the "product" is stored in giant silos where molds and rodents have some fun. Yup, please buy some more.

Posted in: Man arrested for spraying NHK fee collector with fire extinguisher See in context

Is this heavy handed approach with NHK mainly a city thing? I've been here 5 years now (out in the sticks) and not once have been asked about paying any fees.

I thought the USA always liked to be number 1? Come on Americans, Mexico is beating you when it comes to killings. Already over 14,600 murders there from Jan to June. Time to step up your game.

If you think what President Trump tweeted was "racist", you're the only one thinking about race.

Ah, good old Shonan. The beaches near Enoshima are great spots to chill out and spend time at during the summer. I especially like all the beach huts they set up, serving food and drinks.

Posted in: Man shot after pub fracas in Tochigi See in context

Shotgun perhaps...……….not good!

Unless the man left and came back with it, I highly doubt he used a shotgun. Kind of a large weapon to be slinging around in public without someone saying something.

Posted in: How would you define racism? See in context

@Toasted Heretic

You seem certain that Trump is a white supremacist, but are you close to him? Have you ever met and talked to him about his beliefs and has he ever said that white people should dominate others because they are "supposedly" superior to other races? Cause that's what a white supremacist would say. White supremacists also have deep hatred against Jewish people. It's kind of hard to connect Donald Trump to that line of thought.

So, by your way of thinking, anyone who doesn't view Trump as a racist, white supremacist is also a racist, (fill in the color) supremacist?

And I think the USA's reputation was destroyed a long time before Trump came along. Back when corporations and government agencies connected to the military pushed for b.s. wars all over the globe and untold numbers of people suffered and died horrible deaths.

Posted in: How would you define racism? See in context

Apparently from some commentators on JT, racism can only come from white people. Especially the white people who believe Donald J. Trump is helping make America great again. Funny though, cause I thought this is a website about Japan today and not America's past. Many people now (at least in the USA) have multiple ethnic backgrounds. So racism only persists if you keep talking about race (SJWs/Democrats anyone?).

Posted in: What is your understanding of the expression 'cultural appropriation?' See in context

Just another social justice warrior, busybody phrase used by people who want to sow discord and make others feel bad. Having an interest in another culture is a good thing because it brings people together.

Second, it's such a dark cloud that Northern European countries with socialism enjoy the highest quality of life and standards of living.

Wonder how much they enjoy the sky high taxes to pay for all their wonderful social programs.

And precisely what systems are you referring to PT? Reality check for you. The vast, and I do mean vast, majority of Trump supporters are NOT "alt right".

All you commentators talking about how this is because of Trump, and you don't even know if this is a TRUE story.

@Yubaru

"Crap like this has to stop. People can make the claim all they want about "freedom" of speech, but broadcasting murder, in my opinion, is not a freedom of speech issue"

First off, I hate using JT's comment section. One of the worst designs out there.

Second, I remember a certain day in September of 2001 when the TV stations in my country, USA, played video footage, over and over again for days on end, of THOUSANDS of people getting murdered. No one back then made any attempt to silence those who choose to watch or distribute what happened that day. It's unbelievable how authoritarian NZ has become.

While I find this man's views to be disgusting, there is NO crime here.

Posted in: Japanese man dies inflight after eating 246 cocaine packets See in context

There isnt a lucrative cocaine market in Japan.

If these were gram sized packets or larger, then it could have easily been lucrative. Some people use coke on a regular basis in Japan. 246 grams, likely over 8,000yen/gram and you're talking close to 2 million. Probably not his first time carrying and definitely not a good way to go out.

Posted in: U.S. judge deals blow to Trump's border wall plans See in context

It's laughable that so many people seem to think it's a good idea to allow millions of people to pour into a country illegally. Mexico is a literal narco state. The depravity of these gangs is appalling. What they do is pure EVIL. Even all the resort areas Americans visit year after year for Spring break are run by the cartels.

Posted in: Former KAT-TUN singer admits to marijuana use See in context

Police are really going to spend time finding out where they got it? It's not rocket science. Go to Roppongi, talk to the Nigerians, exchange money. But seriously, these pot laws are asinine. 2020 is coming right around the corner and you better believe all sorts of people will be smoking up when they come visit for the Olympics. Oh and apparently Chinese-style censorship is in style now on this website.
