Hi! My name is Loco…and I am NOT a racist! finale

click here for beginning of series I concluded that people who profess shit like: Japanese can’t be held responsible for their behavior any more than a caged chimp can be held responsible for throwing a fistful of feces at you. You might find it disgusting and offensive, but that’s just how apes are.

Hi! My name is Loco…and I am a racist! Pt.35

Click here for pt.1 Over the past two years of writing I’ve described in as much detail as I could many of the more trying Japanese behavior patterns.  The ones resulting from the tendency here to ostracize, dehumanize or otherwise “otherize” people that don’t meet the criteria for normal.
