You can even see this in the Guyanese community here in New York. Just because you're a black Guyanese person doesn't mean you're going to get open arms on indo-guyaneses Liberty Avenue.

It's interesting because in all the other Caribbean islands Caribbean folks of East Indian background get along fine with the Afro descendents.
Just how bad? Do you have examples or stories to share?

The Japanese population is getting old, they need immigration.

Well of coarse. A Guyanese blogger right here on city data from the Bronx had a story of visiting Liberty ave. He said his own people didn't recognize him as being Guyanese and yelled anti Puerto Rican slurs at him but in reality he was just a Guyanese person who looked Hispanic.

Also I know a few women of East Indian decent who no longer have a famiy because they chose to marry a black man. Their family abandoned them immediately after. 1 of the girls is from Trinidad but in Trinidad it is way less likely to see hate between the 2 as compared to Guyana.

There is also a documentary on the racial issues on YouTube. Watched it a while ago and must look for it.

But one story in the documentary was a black Guyanese man who randomly shoots and kills a Indian for no reason.

Another scene in the documentary showed how on the streets, 1 side was black with the music being reggae while across the street was mostly Indian with the music mainly being chutnee.

Now I love Guyanese people but it's obvious that race relations is a problem in that group.

If you have ever visited Israel, you will find that they are welcoming of any religion. What they are not tolerant of is anti-semetism or anti-Israel rhetoric or actions.

This is on MAINSTREAM television in Brazil. That would not fly in the United States.

Or how about South Africa, a country that is 80% black that only recently elected a black president? The United states is 13% black and just elected a black president. We are a lot further along than some countries.
Your lieing. I know you are.....

US racism is more social stratified which can be
just as terrible. The more money you make and
the higher up you get in US society you see how
racism and racist ideas are pretty much a part
of the US fabric.

We are further along, I agree. But we still have
a lot of improving to do in terms of helping people
who feel left out. Our racism may not be displayed
, but it is defiantly institutionalized.

I'm not sure how one becomes a permanent resident, or if it's possible to even become a citizen (I think not), so there are spousal visas and extended work visas, but it doesn't seem you see migrants who really settle there forever, or at least no process for that, but I'm no expert on it.

Such a closed off society. Immigration is one of the greatest strengths of the United States, a melting pot of ideas and values. It seems weird to me to have so little diversity, but I guess Japan is just that; just bizarre.

Not everybody enjoys diversity. In fact, I would suggest that the majority of people in the majority of places in the majority of history actually prefer to surround themselves with people who look/think/believe/behave like themselves.

If the Japanese prefer to surround themselves with other Japanese, and no one else, that doesn't make them bizarre; it puts them in the historic mainstream.

India.

Indians don't only hate other countries, they hate each other.
