For the record:

Brazilians and (probably) Hispanics of pure Japanese heritage are not well received in Japan either------despite being of the same genetic stock.

The cultural differences are huge.

Oh I know that. The point I ws trying to make was that Americans are nowhere near being the most racist or bigoted. I believe that Mexicans are far more racist and bigoted than Americans are and of course, Japan beats us all.

That seems a bit of a generalized assumption. Don't you think?

Not of the ones I have met, the Japanese anyway. I posted some quotes from many Mexicans and as an American it should make your skin crawl.

Dude -slaps-. Of course you're getting those responses that's La Raza types. That's like saying Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are the spokesman for all Black people.

I wish I would have put it that way a long time ago when trying to communicate that point. Great analogy.

But that's EXACTLY what you apologists say when Al and Jesse do their 'pander-dance' to NCLR, that they 'speak for the black community'.

I don't know if you would consider me to be an "apologist" but I certainly would NOT say that those two radicals speak for the black community. I actually go out of my way to state that the small minority of people who make the most noise in the media are often NOT representative of the group of which they claim to be part.
