and kill them
YOU DO NOT DESERVE TO LIVE ON THIS EARTH WITH NORMAL PEOPLE

.... you make me sound racist out of context. Well, at least the link should explain my seething state of mind. All this drama over Faith not being hot. That's just... so sad. On a sad note, you are totally capitalizing on my rage!

LMFAO that pic is frickin' AWESOME!!!!! Their faces and the drunkenness just go so well with the whole scene.

I never realized that Japanese were racist until I played FFXI online. I always had this mental image of a cute culture who were friendly and kind to other people.....holy shit was I wrong!!!

In FFXI some of them would say the most degrading and demeaning shit. I was shocked into reality that's for sure! I figured out that every culture has it's share of racism and it's really no different between the different races....it's all stupidity, fear, and twisted opinions.

I met a lot of Japanese exchange students and they were always so nice and sweet to me. I even met some really great people in FFXI.......but yeah racism is alive and well people!! And it's worldwide.

Dude, Asians even hate on EACH OTHER. You have no idea. It's funny from a Western perspective, how much importance Asians place on outward appearance. It has very much to do with pride and what others think, but when you peel back the pretty pink icing, you unleash a Pandora's Box of hate and one MASSIVE superiority complex.

It's deceptive, to be sure, but also etiquette. Example, when people offer you something (like if you're at someone's house), you always politely decline, but the other party will serve you anyway because that "No, thank you" is mostly just for show. And you always compliment other people with some mild self-deprecation. "Oh, your daughter is so smart, not like mine." Even if deep down, you think their daughter is about as intelligent as a turkey, and obviously everyone thinks their own child is the best. Despite the pride, everything revolves around outward humility (ideally, people take humility to heart though).

That said, I'm curious what you heard in FFXI!

In FFXI we had an auto translator with weird phrases in it and they would piece it together to say things like "NA no thanks, go home" and things of that nature. They would shout weird derogatory things about American's being fat and stupid shit about Elvis one time which just made me LMFAO.

But there was one night a JP was being pretty filthy to me and it's not really a conversation for polite company......which I think you guys still count as ^.^

I heard about the translator in FFXI. That's sad/hilarious. It sounds kind of like foreigners bashing the US in YouTube comments... in other words, incoherently. LMAO @ the Elvis thing, seriously.

Aw, we're polite company. I'm touched.
