Last August, I wrote an article for The Diplomat that discussed some of the issues Japan is facing in relation to population decline. As I noted, the population has dropped for three years in a row. Recently, the Japanese government announced that the population decrease for 2012 is expected to be 212,000a new recordwhile the number of births is expected to have fallen by 18,000 to 1,033,000also a record low.

>>>All the Asian cultures are unbelievably racist. Not just against groups vastly different than them but especially against each other.<<<
White people are most hated by any of them.
One of the students in an international business class I was taking worked for a small corporation that did business with the Japanese. A Japanese company bought them. The student asked our professor what changes he thought would take place at the company. The professor listed the various jobs where the American employees would be fired and replaced by a Japanese employee. He also listed the time frame involved in this. He turned out to be 100% correct. The Japanese do move to other countries if it helps their nation. They are very polite, but they have no interest in changing their national identity.
So what we have learned is that "Asians" are normal.
New Yorkers look down on New jersey.
Yorkshiremen on Lancastrians.
Parisians on everyone.
But, does it make them racist?
Yes, you are right, we (the western world) only seem to believe white people are racist, especially as the media and the schools ram it down are throats 24/7.
The bottom line is this mantra has gone on so long it has taken away form the bigger picture, and that is the west is self-destructing right in front of our eyes.

My wife is Singapore Chinese. She would add rude (Mainland) Chinese, arrogant and nasty Japanese, and that all Vietnamese - and half the Thais - are prostitutes. And don't even get her started on Indians. :)
On the plus side, she looks up to and respects Taiwanese as the true guardians of Chinese culture and she also has a lot of friends from both Hong Kong and China. She's not a racist - it's a cultural bias. Traditional Chinese think their culture is simply superior to all others...just like traditional Americans do.
In general - even though Han Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans have no great love for each other, all them as lighter skinned Asians from more northerly latitudes look down on darker-skinned Asians from southerly latitudes, dismissing them as redneck farmers and low-class hookers.
But her experience with Chinese businesses, both here and overseas, is different from yours. She finds that if she speaks Mandarin at first she gets ignored or treated rudely - but if she addresses the staff in English they immediately bow and scrape and do everything they can to help her. There seems to be a certian self-loathing among many Chinese - especially from the Mainland. They think Westerners - and especially Americans - are superior people. Might be the legacy of Communism at work.
Japan will be fine once they gain the political will to get rid of the remaining feudal trappings and open up land for settlement. Thanks Perdogg.
