This string was started by a Japanese Racist Bigot who used to call himself "Japanese Pride" but now uses the racist name "Trash Poland"

My question is, why are Japanese people like this Japanese guy "Trash Poland" so racist? I used to think Japanese were not racist but sadly I am noticing more racist ones.
In this string he bashes not only the Chinese but Blacks and other groups.
"Trash Poland" can be seen promoting Nazi hatred against Poles in the Poland Forum.

I am sorry, i have been to Japan but i never hear, Japanese kill peoples because skin color. Japanese never attack anothers country because they doesn't like, or another reasons, Vietnam, Afghan, Irak, etc. Japan attack Pearl Harbor because military base but America attack Hiroshima and Nagasaki, it is civil places. Who is rasict now ?

If you think that all Japanese people are racist based on one racist person you are an idiot.

But maybe that wasn't your point. Maybe previously you had thought that no Japanese people were racist but now that you have come across one that is racist you were wondering how it could have happened.

To answer that question doesn't take much thought as it is pretty common knowledge that racism is caused by fear and ignorance.

I lived in Japan for six months in 2007 and was fortunate not to have encountered any racist behavior. Obviously, it exists in Japan as it does in all societies, but I don't think it's prevalent. I think Japan gets a bad rap because the people often speak about topics that are not politically correct in the West such as the homogenous nature of Japanese society, etc. I had much more difficulty in Korea concerning racism. In that country, racism is not hidden as well as in other Asian countries.

I think America is more racist and primitive country in this world. They teach democration with bullets in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghan, etc.

Of course every country has its racists but the Japanese have not apologized for their Nazi like behavior toward Chinese and Koreans the way the Germans have apologized for their Nazi behavior.

The "civilized" Japanese used to do many sick experiments on the Chinese like making them run in the snow naked and pushing them out of planes to see at what height a human dies when he hits the ground.

The fact that the "civilized" Japanese are now trying to re-write their history books showing that they didn't do these things shows how arrogant even today's Japanese are.

If today's Germany can say its sorry and give reparations to its victims, WHY CAN'T "civilized" Japan do the same?

Since the beginning of time, nations have hated each other for various reasons, and have killed and pillaged. Every nation is guilty of this. I'm not trying to excuse what nations like Japan, Germany, and so on, have done in recent times. I'm just want everyone to remember that every nation, since the beginning, is guilty.

am i'm the only one who's getting this question? the person is not asking why ONLY japanese are racist, but why japanese are racist? well then, we should be trying to understand why they are, right? even if everybody IS a racist in this world, there might be cultural differences in how it's manifested in their racist behaviors. being in japan, i do think that there is a lot of racism. you're lucky if you don't encounter it.

Yo! I love in Japan, Im a Black Guy and I can tell one thing for sure, Japanese people are damn not racist at all, In all countries, you will have a select FEW people who are racists, Thats in EVERY COUNTRY, you cant avoid that. Here in Japan I hardly see any Black people or even White people around me. Its very rare so im surrounded by almost all Japanese People. But 99% of all Japanese people I meet are very polite, respectable, hardworking, honest and very decent human beings. So take my word for it, Japanese people are not racist, From kokujin in Japan :-)
