The nations always try to go ahead, they do not stay in history, wars always unfortunate for humanity, what happened was the past and now peace and humanity should prevail.

gas07lisa, what the Governor said is just the continuation "what i mention previously" and you know that there are such remarks from other politicians in the past. and simply it should be stopped for the betterment of the humanity,

first of all i respect you and your views and i also respect every culture and community. But I would certainly oppose any actions which is against the humanity.
1,If somebody bulling you in the school because of your color/appearance
2,if somebody refuse to rental their propriety because of your color/appearance
3,if the clubs/services house refuse you entry because of your color/appearance
4, and if you listening the inappropriate and disrespectful sentences about your appearance and culture
now i do not know where does it falls
where ever it falls and where ever it happens, our responsibility is to condemn it
i hope that you will take all this conversation in a good spirit and in a positive manner because we both and all the people in this page just want to condemn the bad things. thanks

gas07lisa, look Ms/Mr, jokes and racism are two different things, racism in japan is a known fact you con not deny that, you can read the reports of Human Rights Watch, UNICEF and other related organizations or you can go to the recent history.
Despite that i condemn if somebody criticize the Japanese culture or any other culture.
Ali KhanMay. 02, 2013 - 03:59AM JST
I am sorry but you are doing the same thing here, here in japan the establishment, the media and the politicians are involved in such cases, which effects the thinking of the layman in japan.
if you say china vs Japan, Korea vs Japan, Russia vs Japan, so here is a long history and political disputes which is a different issue. but the rest of the world have no such problems with japan.
what i said that the majority of the countries or the nations admire the Japanese culture, which means respecting the Japanese culture.

Yubaru, you are spot on, in japan the ignorance about the other cultures is common and it goes on from the layman to the top politicians. laughing or giving a strange expression about the other culture events is so often and it can be seen on the TV shows.
it is very easy to criticize other culture/history, but the people do not do such things, because it is against the social norm.
The rest of the world truly respect the Japanese culture and the Japanese people and politicians should do the same.

in each crime, the judge examine the background and the circumstances and then decide whether to punish the person or to give just warning or to provide mental help. we should not pass the judgement, this is very important to know about her life and background.
it could be a case of a homeless family, if a homeless mother needs food for her children, how many options she has in this society? she can not ask individuals for help because it is not the custom here, she does not know where to go for help, in the case any thing can happen.

The Indian and the Pakistanis are the crunch rivals but they really appreciate each others stars and admire them, culture and sport should not be mixed up with politics.

This is poor family, the son lost his life and the mother will be suffering for ever for being killed her son, this stigma will remain for ever with her. For avoiding such situations Government should provide support to such families,clinics and stay centers for mentally disabled people can make a big difference in the lives of such families.

no never, human body is precious then any thing else in the universe and every body love themselves, no sensible person will accept the offer against the money.
yes there are other ways for this work and it should be completed by the government authority with taking all the measures in order to insure the health of the person working in the site.
putting an individual in the high risk is another example of the Government how casually they dealing this disaster.

a close family and a strong community is a real schooling for the kids which certainly lacking in japan, in a strong community the people communicate often and the children learn what is right and what is wrong and where is the red line for certain matters. every day you see bullying for fun, suicide on minor issues and unfortunate incidents like this one.
no communication or less communication creates distance among human beings, which creates doubts and fears

if you are not safe with nuclear plant then why you are building it in other countries, it does not make any sense to free yourself from nuclear plants and build it on another land, they are also human being and they can suffer too.

the comments above are getting important here because it shows how are we thinking about this industry? according to the above comments for some sex is part of love, for some it is a business, for some it is a game which provides pleasure.
Here is also a contradiction, an ex-AV star will never allow his/her life partner to have sex with another person, if they do they keep such thing hide from each other.
in all societies of the world, self respect is an integral part of a healthy human being what happen to the self respect during the career of an AV star, does it get damage?
how many of the AV star are forced by the circumstances to be in the industry and how many are here because they like it and why they like? it is another question.
what does this kind of industry serve to the humanity? what is the overall impact on the human society?does it creates or reduces the crimes? does it creates or reduces human stress?what is the role of this industry while maintaining the existence of the human being/human societies?
i would like your kind comments on the above questions.
