    Some people are just shallow, and find it hard not to make nonsensical remarks.

    So, according to you it's possible for him to have a wife (if he doesn't already have one), but he chose to film up random women's skirt and get horny. Worse than I initially thought then.

    I do not personally know any monks be it Buddhists, Catholics, whatever, but the following is what I always read about them.

    "Buddhist monks do not marry, since there are no laws for or against marriage. The reason is obviously that to be of service to mankind, the monks have chosen a way of life which includes celibacy. Those who renounce the worldly life keep away from married life voluntarily to avoid various worldly commitments in order to maintain peace of mind and to dedicate their lives solely to serve others in the attainment of spiritual emancipation."

    If they marry, I would expect it to be after leaving the monastery.

    If he yearns for the flesh, why torture himself? Leave the monastery and go get a wife. When he looks at the pic and gets horny, I'm sure it's not done there.

    I know that, but why that response?

    A monk is a person who practices religious asceticism (describes a lifestyle characterized by abstinence from worldly pleasures), living either alone or with any number of other monks.

    A monastery is the building or complex of buildings comprising the domestic quarters and workplace(s) of monastics, whether monks or nuns, and whether living in communities or alone (hermits).

    With those definitions, I pray thee tell me whither I erred. You should have researched before responding.

    Monk in name only? If he yearns for the flesh, why torture himself? Leave the monastery and go get a wife. When he looks at the pic and gets horny, I'm sure it's not done there.

    If I were a Japanese woman, I would have been ashamed of myself, after reading this (well, don't think any will).

    Why do some Japanese belittle their women like that? Yeah, they have to appeal to the global community, but that doesn't mean Japanese women are not able to do this. Japanese features appeal to a lot of westerners. Who wants to see the same type of girls over and over? Japanese like these are in mental prisons.

    As for Ariana, let's be brutally honest, the people online complaining about her are not upset that she is HALF, they are upset that she is BLACK. I would guess that half Japanese, half white like myself get very positive reactions, but half blacks don't. It has nothing to do with being half, and everything to do with racism towards blacks.

    I may be overanalyzing here, but are you by any chance insinuating that if Miss Japan Universe 2015, were biracial, and her white/caucasoid features were more prominent than her Japanese/asian features she would have been embraced, and have more support from the Japanese people? I don’t think the Japanese are that shallow.

    Based on the arguments I hear, if she were biracial (Black and Japanese), and had more Japanese/asian features it would have been more acceptable. Say she had Sekiguchi Mendy’s, from Exile, features. The uproar would be less. Believe me when I say, if she were biracial, but had more dominant caucasoid features the protests would be the same if not worse.

    Talentos are different. They are not representing Japan. They are just there to entertain the Japanese people. This beautiful young lady is representing the people of Japan, so they justly wished she had more Japanese features. However her beauty and aura was such, that the judges had to give her the crown. She had very beautiful competitors, but topped them all. Ganbatte ne Ariana. You will do Japan proud.

    It's a power trip, and what is the stimulating factor? His ethnicity. Not his size. He was not resisting. They could easily have handcuffed him while he was standing. They didn't. They felt they had to 'overpower' him or they would not have felt satisfied. He was persecuted, but I don't think the cop intended to kill him.

    However, chances are he would have been treated differently if he was doing the same thing and of the same size, but white. The color of his skin decided on how he should be approached. It's like a reflex action.

    He's in a predicament! Maybe out of the fire and into the frying pan scenario here.

    No friends, associates whatever? Savings finished in a week? I wonder what he did to lose his job, and seemingly ostracized.

    It's great that no one is using racial slurs here, and damning/condemning him.

    There will be detractors and there will be detractors. So, since Blacks are killing Blacks, the cops should get in on the action and kill Blacks too? The police's actions are only exacerbating the situation.

    Citizen on citizen crimes are like a bad festering sore in every society across the globe. However, when you have someone who pledges to protect and to serve, instead persecute and slay, and contributes to the statistics, that should be a cause for concern.

    Then one can't help but notice that, in the US, the people who are persecuted and slain by the police are of a certain skin pigmentation. Coincidence? The horrible part about this is the frequency in which these incidents take place. The cops could easily have detained Eric Garner, when he held his hands up. Instead one officer proceeded to tackle him with a chokehold. Garner, wasn't directed to place his hands behind him....nothing.

    Only a blind and deaf person would say this is not racial. However, from my observation, the incidents involving the police do not comprise of the usual racism. These types of racism are more 'power' generated.

    I end by saying that the protests are not only to give the victims' family support, but an outcry for the police to stop acting like criminals. Who knows, someone who is close to one of the protesters could be next, if this type of brutality continues. Selah

    Have you lived in USA as a foreigner? I am a Japanese have been living in USA since I enrolled in a Calif. Univ. So comfortable that I still live in USA

    Kudos to the US on their hospitality towards you.

    Ok, let's put things into perspective. Not everyone is discriminated against. Most times discrimination rear it's ugly head in the US in the form of gun toting cops, and their targets are almost always Blacks. Black men in particular. Try being a Black male in America then return and tell me how comfy you are. As a matter of fact, as a female, I do not feel discriminated against in America. On the contrary, I feel the opposite.

    My beef here is mainly police profiling Black men. In a sense it's like Japanese police profiling foreigners. A few die at immigration, yes, but still appears mild compared to the US.

    Japan's discrimination towards foreigners is mild in comparison to discrimination in the US. The Japanese even discriminate among themselves. The good thing is that the vast majority will not seek to physically harm those they discriminate against. In the US most acts of discrimination are followed by death or bodily harm. So yes it would seem as if there is no discrimination to someone who hasn't actually lived here for a period of time.

    @dcog9065Dec

    Now with recent tensions and poor immigrants wanting in, immigration has constantly had a bad image in Japan. There is no way that will change soon as it will need a generational shift - maybe 30-40 years or so.

    To be poor is a crime? Who are the rich immigrants who have settled in Japan? Are you one?

    Did you know that most of these 'poor' immigrants give back more to the Japanese society than those foreigners who try to superficially elevate themselves, while only womanizing and having a 'good' time? A lot of these 'poor' immigrants are care-givers, construction workers etc. and are filling essential gaps in the workforce that otherwise would be a cause for national concern. Most time these immigrants are hardworking and just 'want in' , so that they can find something more lucrative than 'back home'. They are not the ones to be concerned about.

    Anyway, I think the real issue here is about the careless, erroneous and misleading report made by TBS, that lead to people misinterpreting the cause of the statement made by PresObama.

    This should be Obama's theme song: 'Shake It Off' (Taylor Swift).... with the dance too.

    Hope it is his conscience that is beginning to eat at him. He could easily have asked to be transferred to another station if he felt he was endangering his colleagues lives. It's just a matter of time before the conspiracy is revealed.

    For all those who believed Wilson was beaten to a pulp, you are right. Here are the photos of his injuries that was presented to the grand jury.

    http://www.vox.com/xpress/2014/11/24/7279311/ferguson-darren-wilson-injuries/in/7041840

    I guess the people are feeling the same rage Wilson felt when Brown "dissed" him. Wilson went berserk and murdered Brown. The people went berserk because the murderer wasn't going to answer for his crime, and took out there rage on their environment. Hope they calmed down enough to even volunteer to right their wrong.

    Why not cook the rice with pumpkin or peas or a natural food? Would it be considered deviating from the culture? The kids like making onigiri. Add more nori with rice meals then.

    I feel like crying when I look at this pic. Enlarge it and you will see in his background that he is really at a hospital. Then look at his face...NOT EVEN A SCRATCH!!!! Based on his statement in the grand jury report he was beat to a half stupor. Maybe I'm missing something here, as this photo was released by the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's office, so they must have noticed, but no comment.

    FILE- This undated file photo released by the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney's office on Monday, Nov. 24, 2014, shows Ferguson police officer **Darren Wilson during his medical examination after he fatally shot Michael Brown, ** in Ferguson.

    WOW!!! Look at that shiner!! He can barely open his eyes. His face is all swollen! That thug really beat his face to a pulp.

    No surprise there. This was the condition under which he was indicted. He could easily have been transferred to another station if his colleagues were in danger because of his presence at Ferguson. This is just 'soft' firing.

    He murdered the youth.

    @Frungy This isn't about Wilson, it isn't about Brown... it is about the ongoing racism and persecution of African Americans going on in the USA.

    You hit the nail resoundly on the head. Another one bites the dust. At this rate Black males in the US will soon become extinct. They should be put on the endangered species list.

    @John Constantine Dillon Taylor, was of mixed race. Hispanic and white. He was referred to as being white. The headlines I've read said, 'White man killed by non-white cop. The cop is not black, but is of mixed ethnicity just like Taylor. Don't know why you are spreading propaganda.

    He drew his gun, which Brown had grabbed and twisted until it dug into Wilson’s hip, Wilson testified. “I said: ‘Get back or I’m going to shoot you,’” Wilson recalled saying.

    Hulk had the gun pressed into the 6' 4 midget cop's hip and the cop never got shot. This cop who had a gun pressed into his hip told the youth to step back or he would shoot him?

    Dead man tells no tale.
