They never follow the rules!
They’re an unruly lot…dragging people around, making us naturally Afro’d folks look bad (-;
Maybe I was the inspiration…I’ve run for the train on many a morning (-;
I do miss my natural, though…
Just something I feel like mentioning.
So the Japanese word for foreigner is Gaijin (外人).
A more respectful way of saying foreigner is Gaikokujin (外国人)
The way you say black person in Japanese is kokujin (黒人)
See where I’m getting now…
Take that 国 out and put 黒 instead. Now it’s 外黒人 (Foreign black person), and still pronounced like 外国人. It’s also a more accurate word for what you and I are.
Japanese is amazing ain’t it?
