Oh fuck, good catch on the selfie location. What an asshat...

I have absolutely no issues using "gaijin" for this scrote lol but yeah Japan's xenophobia in general is.... something, and with dudes like this proving their point, I don't really blame them

I know! It's so hard. With the way dudes in general run around Japan like it's some kind of magical fairyland where they can get hOtTeR cHiCkS than they would be able to in their home societies, it's understandable how Japanese stereotypes are assembled. On the other hand, not all of us are like that-- especially the women -- and despite what that Robin DiAngelo idiot said in "White Fragility," these experiences ultimately got me more hip to racism here in the US. So while it's true that if I see a bunch of Black or Latino dudes hanging outside the deli in the city that I'm crossing the damn street (for me, the unfortunate truth is that I get catcalled far more by these folks than anyone else), it's ALSO true that that's not necessarily indicative of EVERY PERSON from those socio-cultures. It's a delicate dance, and although Japan's xenophobia is off the damn charts (and was hard to cope with during my years there), it did make me more aware of this stuff than I might have been otherwise.
