Never judge a whole group of people.
Never judge a whole group of people.
Isn't that what this survey is about, judging people? The only difference is that they asked more than one person.

I believe that she is being used as a political tool. 'The powers that be' would like to influence the Japanese people's perception on foreigners so that they could finally increase immigration.

Then what is the make-up trend nowadays?
Posted in: Women are sensitive to the atmosphere of the times. When society is in a bright mood, they prefer bright and lively makeup. When society is in a dark mood, they tend to use less-lively and simpler makeup.

Automation is going to destroy millions of jobs in the next twenty or thirty years. But there are some jobs that automation can't replace, so having fewer people means a better chance of having a job.

I think some people here are incorrectly focusing on race as the sole definition of diversity when in fact it includes other traits like socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, etc - which can be highly prejudiced against in Japanese society. It is more likely that they would like the discriminated groups in Japan such as women contribute more to the workforce as a method to employ Japanese citizens before having to resort to immigration.
Another benefit of the acceptance of diversity is that it reduces group-think. Instead of having people with the same background in the same room brainstorming ideas you can hire different kinds of people who can bring their own unique insights to the table.
Acceptance could also reduce bullying which many people know is a big problem in Japan, even well into adulthood. Bullying is one way to reduce productivity.
I also find it absurd that even third and fourth generation Koreans living in Japan are discriminated against when many of them are almost completely assimilated into Japanese culture.
