Anonymous asked: my aunt (who is chinese) lives in japan and has two kids, who are mixed japanese and chinese. she and her kids experience a lot of discrimination in japan due to being of chinese descent. would this not be considered racism, because japanese people are poc too? im a little confused sorry x_x
For the sake of clarity in English we could call it ethnic bigotry, prejudice, discrimination, ethnic hate. This is not to say that such discrimination is better or worse than racism on a local level, especially in how it hurts the people that suffer from it… it’s just different and doesn’t operate according to a US-centric model.
Attempts to cover for your cognitive dissonance only make you look like a crazy person.
