  • Otaru Onsen lawsuit victory

    Congratulations to Arudou Debito. 3 million yen awarded for the Otaru onsen refusing him entry based on his skin colour. A triumph for Humanity. Although it may be a token victory at least it was seen on television. And as we all know, Japanese people generally live their lives vicariously through the exploits of others through television. Awareness of despicable racism in their own backyard must have been increased no?

    An "Eye over Springfield" piece is in the works...

      GO, DAVID!!

      Racism sucks, no matter where, when or how it's practiced. Japan needs to come out of the dark ages already!

          I'll have to agree. Racism exists everywhere (even in the UK, and we let anyone in) but decreed racism or racism in writing on a wall is inexcusable.

          Japan absolutely has to come out of the dark ages there.
