The ad. shows typical racism in school in Japan and it depicts a truth. I appreciate Nike’s courage to bring up this negative side of Japanese culture. I hope all the people take this opportunity to think of ijime (bullying) in Japan and also racism of the world.

It's a shame to know that JAL abolishes the expression of "ladies and gentlemen". For me, that is a set phrase for greeting supreme customers and I always hear this expression with excitement upon boarding. Also I used to be proud of using JAL as a Japanese to hear this western way of greeting. Only minor group of people might feel offended with this expression under current trend; however, JAL should be aware that majority of people wouldn't mean to offend those minorities with this expression. I even think that JAL is overreacting to this issue. I would like them to keep this traditional expression as it is.
