Update on Update

There has been a delay in updating the site, sorry about that. For my regular readers, thankyou for your continued feedback and support. The three of us (myself plus the two new editors) have agreed on the following:

1. To have a special section devoted to racism in Australia, as it was agreed by all that Australia is part of Asia, at least by Geography.
2. A profile section of the three editors (myself plus AsianRacism2 and AsianRacism3) the other two editors are thinking about posting photo's, but may follow my lead and blank out our eyes for personal security reasons
3. Looking at setting up some form of 'subscriber' forum or posting system whereby regular contributors and emailers can post comments freely after a sign-up process, this would hopefully strike a balance between freedom of speech and also keeping a lid on some of the content we receive.
4. A new investigation section (more details soon)
5. A new section on Racism in India

So hang in there, loads of new stuff coming soon!

Hello, I'm very happy to see this blog, as I've dealt with 'Asian Racism' for a good number of years and have never felt that the issue has been properly addressed. Id like to send the author of this blog an email to discuss a few issues, but am unsure where to send it? Could the author send an email to sustainablejj[at]yahoo[dot[com? Thank you.

Hi, good job with this blog, you are certainly raising some important issues that i feel aren't really recognised when it comes to general discrimination. I've visited Japan many times, and have encountered a significant number of situations and stories involving discrmimations of "gaijin" or foreigners from the locals, as well as the huge amount of racism i have seen from the asian community on the internet. If this were caucasians being this racist, there would be an uproar, but this asian racism seems to go completley unnoticed. Anyway, i find this blog highly interesting so keep up the good work.

Thankyou both for he positive feedback. Racism in Japan is well documented by a number of sources, including the UN. I think its fair to say that if ANY minority living in Japan - be they Koreans, Phillipino's, African Americans, people of Anglo-Saxon, Nordic, Slavic or Baltic extraction acted in similar manners, it would cause some issues; not just people whose ancestors lived in or around the base of the caucus mountains (Caucasians)
