I was talking to my semi racist white friend yesterday. " Dude there needs to be more racist things against white people or at least Americans."

Thank you Japan.

Seriously though grow some people. I get poked fun at all the time for being the only asian in an white/black school and i havent started crying yet. People are so sensitive these days.

I've been waiting for this, now all the white racists can have a taste of there own medicine.

YOU NO HUNGRY FO GIRL!... need i say more?

This seems quite similar to the whole Resident Evil 5 debockle it really is just INTENSELY stupid on the part of whoever thought this ad up and must be force feed nothing but McDonald's MOLTEN HOT french fry grease for not realizing that a great deal of people would take offense to this I myself have many friends that understand kanji and they are in high school.

Once again the INTENSE stupidity of humanity somehow surprises me.

scnj:
Just seems like a harmless joke to me. People take offense at anything these days.

I know what you mean, Everyone is taking such care these days not to offend each other they just end up being pissed off at each other instead -_-

I hate the type of people who get bothered by stupid jokes like this, and try to fucking sue and boycott away things they don't like.
My theory is that these pansy-ass spoiled shits are the ones ruining everything in America, trying to make us look like a bunch of sensitive pussies.

Its an extremely blatant stereotype, a Japanese citizen would have to be a fucking moron for this ad to affect his view of Americans.
By the way, remember when we dropped an A-bomb on a city filled with innocent people? I think whatever committee is trying to stop these ads better start by getting on their knees and cleaning some nobs before their whiny shit is taken seriously.

Also, do you remember how racist we were to them during WW2? It's going to take a surge of horrifying racism towards whites from all over Asia to make up for the way we portrayed them during that period.

Though I will agree that no one should take this Ad seriously...

Might I point out a few things?

1. THEY STARTED IT. We were sitting in our harbors, minding our own buisness while the REST of the world was having an all out war, but NOOOOOOOOOOO, those Axis siding jerks had to come along and ruin our fun. Yeah, we DID kinda overreact, BUT, we did build them right back after, and even were nice enough to let them keep their country instead of taking it over and turning it into a Wal-Mart or whatever people who own a country do after...
2. The estimated Loss of life was in the multi millions if we tried a regular invasion, in which innocent people would still die by the city full, but with the dropping of two A bombs (Our only 2, even though we told them we had WarehouseS full of them XD) we cut that loss factor by a large percentile, and in turn curved a large loss of human life, into a still large, ubt not AS large loss of life.
3. Did I mention they were siding with the Axis at the time?
4. Did you EVER listen to what they did to POWs? Should read that up sometime, malnourishing prisoners to the point they make starving ethiopians look like the fattest of modern day americans is perfectly okay, but water boarding someone, something colleges do for initiation? YOU MONSTERS![/quote]
Im all for showing japan were strong and not risking a land invasion, but bombing CIVILIAN CITIES!? Unprovoked Military Attack= bad.
Unprovoked Civilian attack=TERRORISM. An important military base is OK(They still backstabbed us in Pearl Harbor), but a City full of innocent families is not. We call killing innocent people these days TERRORISM. Had Al Quada attacked a military base and NOT NYC There'd be less outrage and a war on Al Qaeda, not a war on Terrorism.
They could've bombed Japan's bases where combatants understand the risks instead of cutting thousands of innocent Non-threatening lives short. TWICE. I mean what could they have even SAID? 'Yeah we weren't at war with you civilians. We killed your armies because thats how war works, but we killed your families to prove a point. To any of the retired Japanese military vets; You killed us, we killed you. We Are no longer at war and are now Allies. We're cool, right?
To the Dead and slowly dying victims of our bomb; Yeah we didnt feel like fighting your armies so We decided to make an example out of you TWICE as you were going about your peaceful daily lives. Our bad.'

Wow,some people really get upset about this?
And I thought that the guys that started the whole "RE5 is racist" campaign were the only idiots that get offended by just about anything...

I went to japan last year...learnt a few Phrases (enough to order Maccy Ds anyways) and the whole process was very foreigner friendly...they had a board with numbers on and you just pointed...i never encountered any problems with language barriers...even if i did suck at japenese everyone was really undderstanding...maybe we could learn to laugh at ourselves?

scotth266:
I can see why they'd be upset. Anyone remember how Taco Bell got sued for the Chihuahua, with some people claiming that it was a racist stereotype? If you don't, that's why it disappeared: some Mexicans thought that it was racist. This is just another version of that. If "Yo quiero Taco Bell" had to go in the US, I think it's entirely reasonable that they would make these demands.

Not that I find anything offensive with it, mind you: I just hate the concept of Acceptable Targets. If you can make fun of one group, and use stereotypes of one group, you should be allowed to do so to all groups.

I agree. I remember the Taco Bell dog, and I remember how he quickly disappeared when lawsuits came rolling in. There is a double standard here, and it is sort of ridiculous. Either everyone should be fair game for this sort of thing or nobody should. It's that simple.

Again dear, this is where a little research goes a long way to ACTUAL facts.

The two cities were NOT just housing civilians, but garrisons AND housing for military personal. It's kinda like if they dropped a bomb on the coastline of Conneticut and on Manhattan Island. Yeah A LOT of civilians would be killed, BUT, they would also have destroyed one of our top submarine manufacturing plants, and an entire army regiment, clearing a now fortifyable position for an invasion... but again, that requires research to discover and people don't like facts it seems XD

Nobody makes fun of white American people nowadays, I think they're well deserving of a good joke. The French, Russians and black people have been in the firing line for too long.

The first deserve it. Your are correct about the other two though.

People seriously need to learn to take a bit of light-hearted fun; its not as if McJapan is saying all white men are overweight schitzophrenics that spend their time playing the banjo and cursing foreigners.

So he's a stereotypical white nerdy gaijin visiting Japan

While I'd like to say something more in depth, I feel like I can't say much on account that I'm not white. I'm an American, but not white. Even if I was a lighter shade of brown, I wouldn't even know where to begin. Seeing as I've already taken up more time than I think it's worth, I am going to let it go, and hope that at the end of all of this, every one (on both sides of the Pacific) will have enough of a sense of humor to let this go.

Oh and nobody complains about the same kind of crap that happens in the Western World. Oh well, also this guy look like the FF13Petition geek. You know, the one that claims he's an expert of Japanese culture even though all the experience he has about Eastern culture is probably derived from Wikipedia, anime, manga, and a convention or two. Here's where you can see the douchebag: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k-uTnqYHZ-I

As a white man, I have this to say.

From what I've read of this campaign, it looks hilarious. I actually want to learn to read Japanese just to see what he's saying.

As for FRANCA, well, it's interesting to note that in most cases of racism, those who were persecuted didn't have the option to leave, the white people who came to Japan to bang a schoolgirl generally have that option, or at least had the power to make that choice open to them. Besides, considering that they consider the rest of us barbarians this should suprise no-one.

I'd snip this quote but Im on my Wii Browser.

Your right, but why use such a huge bomb for that? A nuke is more than overkill for a plant. And no one will be getting close enough to start bombing us, Its likely to be an ICBM. Thats like Ordering a tactical nuke strike onto a bunch of terrorists in a building! 'Sure everyone within a few miles is screwed, but we got the Terrorists! America is safe again!
If they wanted to demonstrate how bad-@$$ we are they could have done so without a massive loss of civie life. People are respectful of our power now, yet we didn't blow up any more cities in demonstration.
The Incideary bombing canpaigns Killed way more than the atomic bomb did anyway. Fire and an almost entirely wooden japan dont mix.

People seem to get it these days anyway, with precision strikes that can target a specific room in a building without Blowing away everyone in a 3-mile radius.

sorry im on the side of take it down

if over here in america we would do something like this there would be mass outrage from the other country most likely

Americans should be used to be the joke of the whole world by now.

thats why we tolerate their racism because we make jokes about them all the time.

We've been making fun of Japanese tourists with their little cameras for years. I think they've earned the right to laugh at us for a while. I mean, we ARE pretty lame.

Spoken like someone who's never been to a place where white people aren't in the majority.

This is not a joke about white people being made in America or Europe. This is a joke about white people being made in an incredibly xenophobic, anti-Anglo nation where white people are socially, politically, and financially marginalized. Imagine "Mr. Gonzalez, the stupid Mexican who can't speak English but LOOOOOOOVES some Taco Bell. What a lovable spokesperson!" as an ad campaign in America. Now picture you're Mexican, living in America.

That's basically what this is, just a different culture, different target.

I doubt that's true, considering the fact that you named a continent, rather than an actual nation or city. That'd be like someone saying "I lived in North America for 6 years" when he spent the entire time in Vermont.

But let's assume you're being completely honest. Was it a developed nation? Were the primary economic interests run by white people, or by Africans? Were the white people there, in general, more privileged than the black people, or less? Japan is not Africa.

Chirst. That last sentance goes back on your previous views a bit mate.

And yes, I did live in Africa for six years. I just didn't think you'd want me to tell you my life story.

I did charity work out of Addis Ababa for four years, then moved onto do work for World Vision for the remaining two in a small village in Togo.

Doesn't go back on my views, but I'll agree that I did choose my words poorly.
I should've said "spoken like someone who's never been to somewhere with a non-white 'establishment'". In most of the African continent, either 'the establishment' is largely white, or it is nonexistent. The latter is often the case in areas popular for charitable organizations.
In Japan, white people who live and work there are treated in a fashion similar to Mexicans and South Americans living in the U.S. or Pakistanis living in the U.K. In fact, they're often treated worse, because people justify their behavior with statements like your earlier one.
I mean after all, they're white. They've got it coming.

If any of you knuckleheads were to EVER visit a foreign country, I HIGHLY DOUBT you will know as much of the language as Mr. James does. He's a TOURIST, not a citizen. I guarantee if we sent you guys over there you couldn't ask 'do you speak english' much less make a blog in a foreign language. If he was a person who's been living there, thats one thing, but James is a tourist, Just like when white people go to The Islands and they speak funny there, but no one cares cause you'll be gone in 2 weeks. Calm down and get mad over actual stuff, like Perverts, Gender inequality and the high Teen suicide rate due to people breaking under all the pressure of the manic school systems.
And the title for this article is a set-up to get people mad. 'What's this article? JAPAN MAKES FUN OF WHITE PEOPLE!!!?? Lemme go type something negative!!! Notice how no one gives a crap until its THEIR race. Even though it's NOT.

i find your comment disturbing do to the fact that you say double standerd because in the world of white there is no plight whites have been supremicy seeking a holes forever bout time someone picked at them also i think this was more like observational huer then outward racism

Im all for showing japan were strong and not risking a land invasion, but bombing CIVILIAN CITIES!? Unprovoked Military Attack= bad.
Unprovoked Civilian attack=TERRORISM. An important military base is OK(They still backstabbed us in Pearl Harbor), but a City full of innocent families is not. We call killing innocent people these days TERRORISM. Had Al Quada attacked a military base and NOT NYC There'd be less outrage and a war on Al Qaeda, not a war on Terrorism.

Wow... you just shot yourself in the foot with that argument XD

"People are respectful of our power now, yet we didn't blow up any more cities in demonstration.
The Incideary bombing canpaigns Killed way more than the atomic bomb did anyway. Fire and an almost entirely wooden japan dont mix." So.. you say we used to big a bomb, then go on to brag about how you killed more human lives with incindery strikes? You just kinda pointed out that we made the better choice as we took LESS lives and STILL forced a surrender.

Next. If we had a cruise missle to shove up the asses of their leaders at that time, WW2 would have been over much sooner because instead of raiding normandy, we would have just used that future tech to shove a missile up hitlers ass painted in gay rainbow triangles and david stars. But the A BOMB (Not Nuke, but Atomic Bomb, much smaller boom then a nuke, and a lot less fallout radiation) was our biggest insurance to end the war quickly, and with as little losses on ourside, AS WELL as their side while assuring success.

See heres your biggest flaw in your debating. You are thinking with our modern day equipment, not with what we had available during WW2, hell, even a bit after WW1 we still were using heavy cavalry (Armored men with lances and guns on horses)

Normally i would just say to get the fuck over it cos its funny as shit but however its still inappropriate. Im white. I dont find it offensive. However cool with it all the whites are, it still wouldnt be ok if it was an ad from a western, english speaking country featuring a Japanese tourist. It would be considered "racist". Until racism, reverse racism and over sensitivity like this has disappeared from our society we will be unable to have witty adverts like this.

EDIT: Holy fuck some douches actually brought WW2 into this. Cmon thats just pathetic and got nothing to with this shit

Actually, I'm glad for that. It makes me feel a little less guilty about Japanese stereotypes in American pop culture and advertisements.

so you support harming whites mentally and racially because our ancestors were assholes? Thats cute. Well I mean it's not like us white americans made up for it by fighting ourselves in a bloody war that pitted brother against brother in an attempt to strip states of their individual rights in order to allow the government to begin the long process of stripping racism from our culture and our laws. And I mean, it's not like when the confederates fought for slavery to be legal, among other things such as states individual rights there was actual black people who gladly took up arms to help defend their homesteads in the south.. nope... not at all.

Oh, and if we are going to punish based on what ancestors did, we need to execute anyone related to the crusaders, because they did some major racism and attrocities, OH, and we need to arrest a fair amount of blacks in our country who have african tribal ancestors because their own ancestors are the ones who sold their fellow black brothers into slavery. Same goes for the Japanese, Koreans, Chinese, and all asian groups who were extremely racist to eachother just for being from a different culture and/or country and commiting numerous attrocities. but nah, they aren't white so THEIR racism will be ignored by the public because it's easier to pick on the whites... ahhhh... I love tolerated racism and ignorance ^.^

I've had someone move seats away from me on the train before in Japan, for no obvious reason except that I was a tall white foreigner guy. Is there really such a leap from xenophobic to racist? From my gaijin experiences, there seems to be a certain attitude towards foreigners.

I hate the type of people who get bothered by stupid jokes like this, and try to fucking sue and boycott away things they don't like.
My theory is that these pansy-ass spoiled shits are the ones ruining everything in America, trying to make us look like a bunch of sensitive pussies.

Its an extremely blatant stereotype, a Japanese citizen would have to be a fucking moron for this ad to affect his view of Americans.
By the way, remember when we dropped an A-bomb on a city filled with innocent people? I think whatever committee is trying to stop these ads better start by getting on their knees and cleaning some nobs before their whiny shit is taken seriously.

Also, do you remember how racist we were to them during WW2? It's going to take a surge of horrifying racism towards whites from all over Asia to make up for the way we portrayed them during that period.

Though I will agree that no one should take this Ad seriously...

Might I point out a few things?

1. THEY STARTED IT. We were sitting in our harbors, minding our own buisness while the REST of the world was having an all out war, but NOOOOOOOOOOO, those Axis siding jerks had to come along and ruin our fun. Yeah, we DID kinda overreact, BUT, we did build them right back after, and even were nice enough to let them keep their country instead of taking it over and turning it into a Wal-Mart or whatever people who own a country do after...
2. The estimated Loss of life was in the multi millions if we tried a regular invasion, in which innocent people would still die by the city full, but with the dropping of two A bombs (Our only 2, even though we told them we had WarehouseS full of them XD) we cut that loss factor by a large percentile, and in turn curved a large loss of human life, into a still large, ubt not AS large loss of life.
3. Did I mention they were siding with the Axis at the time?
4. Did you EVER listen to what they did to POWs? Should read that up sometime, malnourishing prisoners to the point they make starving ethiopians look like the fattest of modern day americans is perfectly okay, but water boarding someone, something colleges do for initiation? YOU MONSTERS!

Im all for showing japan were strong and not risking a land invasion, but bombing CIVILIAN CITIES!? Unprovoked Military Attack= bad.
Unprovoked Civilian attack=TERRORISM. An important military base is OK(They still backstabbed us in Pearl Harbor), but a City full of innocent families is not. We call killing innocent people these days TERRORISM. Had Al Quada attacked a military base and NOT NYC There'd be less outrage and a war on Al Qaeda, not a war on Terrorism.
They could've bombed Japan's bases where combatants understand the risks instead of cutting thousands of innocent Non-threatening lives short. TWICE. I mean what could they have even SAID? 'Yeah we weren't at war with you civilians. We killed your armies because thats how war works, but we killed your families to prove a point. To any of the retired Japanese military vets; You killed us, we killed you. We Are no longer at war and are now Allies. We're cool, right?
To the Dead and slowly dying victims of our bomb; Yeah we didnt feel like fighting your armies so We decided to make an example out of you TWICE as you were going about your peaceful daily lives. Our bad.'

Again dear, this is where a little research goes a long way to ACTUAL facts.

The two cities were NOT just housing civilians, but garrisons AND housing for military personal. It's kinda like if they dropped a bomb on the coastline of Conneticut and on Manhattan Island. Yeah A LOT of civilians would be killed, BUT, they would also have destroyed one of our top submarine manufacturing plants, and an entire army regiment, clearing a now fortifyable position for an invasion... but again, that requires research to discover and people don't like facts it seems XD

I'd snip this quote but Im on my Wii Browser.

Your right, but why use such a huge bomb for that? A nuke is more than overkill for a plant. And no one will be getting close enough to start bombing us, Its likely to be an ICBM. Thats like Ordering a tactical nuke strike onto a bunch of terrorists in a building! 'Sure everyone within a few miles is screwed, but we got the Terrorists! America is safe again!
If they wanted to demonstrate how bad-@$$ we are they could have done so without a massive loss of civie life. People are respectful of our power now, yet we didn't blow up any more cities in demonstration.
The Incideary bombing canpaigns Killed way more than the atomic bomb did anyway. Fire and an almost entirely wooden japan dont mix.

People seem to get it these days anyway, with precision strikes that can target a specific room in a building without Blowing away everyone in a 3-mile radius.

Wow... you just shot yourself in the foot with that argument XD

"People are respectful of our power now, yet we didn't blow up any more cities in demonstration.
The Incideary bombing canpaigns Killed way more than the atomic bomb did anyway. Fire and an almost entirely wooden japan dont mix." So.. you say we used to big a bomb, then go on to brag about how you killed more human lives with incindery strikes? You just kinda pointed out that we made the better choice as we took LESS lives and STILL forced a surrender.

Next. If we had a cruise missle to shove up the asses of their leaders at that time, WW2 would have been over much sooner because instead of raiding normandy, we would have just used that future tech to shove a missile up hitlers ass painted in gay rainbow triangles and david stars. But the A BOMB (Not Nuke, but Atomic Bomb, much smaller boom then a nuke, and a lot less fallout radiation) was our biggest insurance to end the war quickly, and with as little losses on ourside, AS WELL as their side while assuring success.

See heres your biggest flaw in your debating. You are thinking with our modern day equipment, not with what we had available during WW2, hell, even a bit after WW1 we still were using heavy cavalry (Armored men with lances and guns on horses)[/quote]
Im tired and my eyes hurt cause I woke up too early today. Ok, now to what you said:
I was using ICBMs as an example of the current time how we wouldn't be Bombed but Missle striked. Like people could REALLY send bombers over the atlantic ocean without us knowing these days. Back in WW2, Germany knew they couldn't 'bomb' U.S so they made the v2 missle, which eventually would've been able to reach us if they had more time.

I wasn't bragging, I was showing I understood the A-bomb wasn't the most deadly thing we did, but I still think they could've used it on a base far from innocents to force a surrender. We were flying over Nagasaki and Hiroshima, we could've got our targets using conventional bombs like normal. Dropped the A-bomb over a fleet of ships I can see but using that over a city is like police taking out a hostage taker not with a conventional sniper rifle but a 120mm Cannon. It's overkill for that particular scene, and innocent people will get hurt. I'm Obviously not a debater, but I think I can get points across pretty decent. Can you snip quote this? It's getting pretty long.

...Why are we having this nice little talk again? I don't even know! It's not even about the AD anymore! I must lighten the mood with a meme...

HAY WHIT TIGUR
SO I HERD U LIEK BLASTOYZ.

McDonald's is all about the vaguely offensive advertising lately, their US ads for their silly coffee drinks are almost blatantly anti-intellectual. Maybe they're trying to be edgy, I don't know. In any case, I actually thought the ads were kind of funny, though I can see it being offensive, personally, I say let us white people take one on the chin. Why not?

yeh god damn white ppl,
