Nope, im half japanese and proud.

 

yes you are, I too am half Japanese though Im certainyl not proud to be affiliated with  a nation of unrepetant war criminals.  Anything pre 1930's is good though.

 

agreed, i was most disgusted about the capturing of koera, and using their wormen (about 500,000) as japanese sex slaves

 

And the reason i say "proud" is casue i am not asshamed of my heartage. Thoughout the 1940s, a wave of prejeduice wept thoughout America.

your right, the internment camps and the like, in my very white high school I was the most ethnic person and I took alot of BS for it.

I think certain eras are worth being proud of though, the Meiji resotration and the early Tokugawa period in particular.  Japan really is the only non western country to modernize so early as so completely in the recent era.  Although I dont like what happened to the Koreans I have no objection to annexing it just as I dont have on objection to th eUS annexing the phillipines, someone would have annexed those places anyway.  If not the Japanese then the Russians, if not the Americans then the Germans etc...

Japans WW2 rep has nothing to do with the Meiji restoration at all as some people claim, and Ito Hirobumi before the annexation wanted to ally with Korea and influence its rulers to modernize for stability.  Something went teribly wrong int eh 30's that ruined all the progress made my great statesmen like Ito and Yamagata.

so yeah I guess it depends on the era.

hey tobodai, when u went to high school, did a lot of people call you "jap?"

In my school, i take that offensily. When my friends say it, i know their joking, but when these random people call me "jap" i give them a warning, and tell them how offensive it is.

But when im trying to learn something, its nothing personal

EX: my world histroy teacher was talking about the russo-Japanese war, he was trying to put in perspective saying russian were getting mad at the czar poor leadership cause they were losing to "yellow Japneese" or japs, forgot which one.

 

just wondering.

Gubuk:

yes Ito compromised his principles at the end and like all geniouses he went a little bit loopy too , trying to install his son as future regent etc, but while he was governor general he was one of the few people to oppose outright annexation, hence why it was inacted so soon after he was shot (using that as a pretext of course).

Orcremix:

no one expressly called me jap because being the evil manipulative a$$ that I am I told differnt people different stories of my ethnic background.  Among uneducated people I can pass for a Turk, Greek, Italian, or any type of Asian so I told soem people I was Vietnamese, some people I was Turkish, some people I was 100% native American etc so based on confusion they gave up trying to classify me and just settled for "Mexican" which was so bizarre that I actually found it funny, then I got the nickname of Goya out of nowhere too...but by this point it was so funny I actually reveled in it.

as for the Russo-Japanese war, the Russians were more PO'd about fighting in a war that the peasants viewed as for an aelite special intrest group that for the nation (manchurian railroad builders) the odd thing that I was going to make its own thread but I guess given the topic being here I will post here is the support the Japanese got from most of the west against Russia, ironically especially in America.

The Kaiser fo Germany pushed Nikolas II to war because the Kaiser was a very racist man who believed yellow peril would engulf the world if Russia did not rule the east, but aside from him and the vaunted French world opinion actually favored Japan, to quote one of heroes Teddy Roosevelt at the time:

"No human beings, black, yellow, or white could be quite as untruthful, as incensire, as arrogant, in short, as untrustworthy in every way, as the Russians under the present system and their preposterous little Czar"

Some famous American authors wrote about a 'white peril' and how Russia was the enemy of Asia, and many British, after the accidental sinking by Russia of fishing trawers advocated outright war with Russia in accordance with the Anglo-Japanese alliance of 1902.

So it goes both ways, whew.

 

as for the personal touch I let my friends call me wahtever they want, including psychotic jap, or whatever, because I call them stuff right back, its just a joke cause none of us care.  If a person says it that doesnt knwo you though, thats generally a bad sign.  For example once an angry fat Irishman called me a jap so I called him "faggy shamrock mcpaddycakes" I know Im so mature.  Remember its the public school system, so if you are attakced first and you are the minority you will always win if it comes to disciplinary action.
