I think the Japanese or japs are decent people
The Chinese however I find are the most ignorant people in the world and I can back that up havin spent time in china
So if your sayin our friends from the east involve the Chinese I'm afraid I am not part of that category as I hate them so I guess you could say I am racist towards the Chinese
Also when I put into google Japanese river dolphin it came up Yangtze river dolphin therefore I assumed it was in Japan as it says about the Japanese capturing the dolphin
Don't believe me then put it in yourself
Without wishing to turn it into a competition, I've spent time in East Asia and my wife is Japanese. I can assure you that the term "Jap" is an offensive one and is much more than just flippancy. If you feel the need to use the term again, that's your path to chose. I just hope you never use it in front of a Japanese person.
I'm sorry you feel hatred towards the Chinese. Is that all Chinese or just Han Chinese? It's a vast country with many different peoples and ethnicities. A country that size is impossible to classify under one generic umbrella.
Not all Japanese are into whaling. In fact, these days it's a minority. Whale was very much a staple part of the Japanese diet, post WW2 when times were tough - the younger crowd are not interested in whale or dolphin and I have no truck with those who are. Having said that, I have eaten whale (in Norway). Also, there are entire communities in parts of Japan who rely on whaling for their livelyhood - not condoning it - but that's the way it is at present.
I can't dismiss entire nations for certain things that are repugnant to me. Otherwise I'd be very much an insular person with no desire to see and meet people in this world of ours. Apologies if you feel I invaded your thread but I've had to put up with various unpleasant dealings out there because of my wife's nationality and it gets to be a bit of a drag - so yeah, when it comes to loved one's - one tends to bristle when one hears certain things being said.
Ignorance is a global thing, I find if we tend to treat people as individuals it goes someway towards understanding (but not necessarily appreciating every aspect) their culture.
That's me off my soapbox now.
