I think Japan is the clear winner here.

They dont even allow foreigners to immigrate to their country. That's racist.
At least America and Australia have all kinds of people to immigrate there...as well as Canada and the UK. .

Japan-- no. They're racist and look at foreigners with disdain. Yes, they dont mind foreigners visiting their country, but they would never welcome u to live there because you're not ethnic Japanese.

America is by no means perfect and has quite a racially checkered past--- we all know this, however modern America is one of the most diverse countries in the world and the avaerage American living day to day life experiences little to no racism at all. . . Same with Australia.

I'd recommend to do some actual research before posting something like that...

Immigration Bureau of Japan Website
Japanese nationality law - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

lol, that website looks like something circa 1998

and let's be honest--you'll never truly be considered Japanese even if u gain citizenship. you're always a foreigner. why argue that point with me? I'm right.

First generation immigrants to the U.S are considered naturalized aliens, not regular Americans, even with U.S citizenships.

You have to be born in the U.S to be the president.

Also, the U.S is racially segregated. Is Japan racially segregated?

At least, there's no reason to believe Japan is worse than the U.S.

What other country in the developed world has a history more turbulent than the United States when it comes to race? I do believe that America has become more excepting of people from different races/ ethic backgrounds over the past two or three decades, however we still have along way to go.
South Africa?

Immigration policy and racism are not the same thing.

For example, the U.S used to accept white European immigrants only.
Did the U.S admit immigrants on a large scale? - Yes
Racism - Yes!

The USA has had a very racist history but i think its less racist then most countries here. I have never experienced racism anywhere until i went to one of the countries on the poll.

According to who? The fooled?

Institutional racism effects the economic lives of millions of Black-American males (consequently, often times black families) on a daily basis, regardless of whether or not they realize it. There are arguably other negative externalities that resulting from such economic depression that adversely affects the social and emotional life of individual Black-Americans to vary degrees.

Externality - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
In economics, an externality is a cost or benefit which results from an activity or transaction and which affects an otherwise uninvolved party who did not choose to incur that cost or benefit.
You see how many young black males end up subject to violence, end up dead, end up in prison, jail, or on probation of some sort.

Enslaving people is now Constitutionally illegal in the United States. The U.S. Constitution protects enslavement in one case: being found guilty in criminal court and sentenced to prison.

Need I remind who makes up most of the U.S. prison population percentage wise? It's not exactly egalitarian-ly represented.

This reminds me of me of discussions on New York City, like if people repeat a thing enough times somehow it will make it more true.

Here: In economics, an externality is a cost or benefit which results from an activity or transaction and which affects an otherwise uninvolved party who did not choose to incur that cost or benefit.

Not The Land of Milk and Honey for all. I used to work painting on new build construction sites in Industrial Parks and projects in places like Germantown, Wisconsin. It seemed to me, from looks, like billions of dollars of development was ongoing outside the city of Milwaukee. You know why? Because there was/is few to no black people living in those areas. Imagine how downtown Milwaukee or the 30th Street corridor (largely abandoned industrial buildings) would look with all that development going into it?
