    Different things are considered offensive in different places.

    Heck, German comedy shows quite often use blackface, or portray Asians as chingchognwingwong.
    Something that mean media suicide in the states.

    So its ok to be racist as long as you are in the right country?

    and that's not racist, right?

    No kidding. It still could be considered offensive. Germany doesn't exactly have the influx of millions of east-asian immigrants that we do here in the States. Hell, look at Japan. It's one of the most homogenous states in the world, which is probably why you see some racist ass shit come out of their pop culture.

    Just stating facts.
    Something that is considered racist in one country might not be considered racist in an other one.

    Take these two examples. Both are from award winning shows. Both are audience favorites.
    The first is a sketch comedy one (this sketch is about a gay enterprise crew), the second one parodies other TV shows (House M.D. in this instance).
    As strange as it might seem to you, nobody even so bats an eye when watching them over here.

    The world is a strange place.

    Do you really believe that what constitutes racism varies largely from country to country? Do you think maybe it comes down more so to the fact that the US is home to 44 million hispanics, 40 million blacks, 13 million asians, 2 million natives, etc. While a country like 'lolol-blackface' Japan is 99.4% 'Japanese'...

    Do you think that maybe, instead, we've simply learned a thing or two about how to treat other races after all of this time? If something is done or said that is largely offensive to blacks, we'll hear about it. We might hear about it from ten million different voices, voices that make up large chunks of voters in political elections.

    If something is said or done in Japan that is largely offensive to blacks...well...what, we get a few angry letters to the editor?

    Me too.

    Also, Japan is not necessarily racist. What they are is very xenophobic, and that can divulge itself as a exhibit itself as racism. Many asian cultures are like that. Remember, a little while back, Viv talking about how the Chinese have insulting names for foreigners that, while racial-based, really serve to distinguish their culture from everyone else's?

    I'm not saying it's right; far from it. These tendencies fueled atrocities like the Rape of Nanking. But I do want to expose that it does not necessarily come from a racist perspective.

    Xenophobia isn't much better than just racism.

    In fact, historically it's been even worse.

    Call me crazy Fari, but coming up with pet names for people that look different then you and treating them poorly is pretty racist. Then again, when you're eating a bowl of tiger penis in bear gall bladder juice soup you need something to talk about.

    Racism fueled by xenophobia. Maybe I'm looking too much into identifying the source and intention of the racism, but eh.

    Oh, I agree. I almost wrote a caveat that went something like...

    "Does this make Japan more racist? not necessarily, but it does affect how sensitive they are to racial issues...which comes across in how callous some of their TV skits are."



    On another note, China used the Rape of Nanking in probably one of the worst ways possible. What followed was a few decades of 'apology diplomacy' wherein they were obsessed with obtaining apologies from atrocities of the past, and would use a lack of apology (sometimes from things that had happened decades previously) as a deciding factor in massive foreign policy decisions. There was also a massive 'victimization' movement following the Japanese atrocities, and a tremendous emphasis with the idea of saving face. The victimization movement really didn't do much good for China.

    Edit: I'm rambling about this, and I just realized the best book I've read on this topic is totally on Google Books.
