1. An overrated race of Asia, in which now in modern days have anime which creates wannabes.
2.The most highly looked at race in Asia, by the outsiders. Which causes people to neglect other Asian countries such as Korea and China.
3. Have a lot of shared characteristics within their culture with Koreans and Chinese people.
4. These traditions are put into their anime, and the world automatically thinks that anything that seems modern, fancy, or cool is Japanese.
5. Have proved to the world that a country, which AT ONE POINT ate dogs (Some provinces of China, and some Korean cities... honestly.... these people were starving.... give these guys a break man) are WORSE than countries that at one point killed people in great numbers and raped the women of a country. (Look it up)
6. Anything that is made in Japan, and is believed by many to be reliable, advanced, and up to date.
7. A pretty good looking country which many wannabes wish to live at. Buildings are pretty much the same as Korean buildings. Temples at Japan are strikingly similar to Chinese and Korean temples. BUT more people know Japan for having those buildings.
8. Known for blaming their ancestors, and having wannabes blame their ancestors too.
9. Experienced the first atomic bomb directly. They say that there are other ways ending the war, with less casualties. (This is possible if you don't consider the Korean people and Chinese people which they would be constantly killing.)
(I'm half Korean half Chinese. When i say me i refer to these 2 races)
4. Guy: what kind of food do you Chinese people eat? (notice... s/he doesn't even care much about race... it's either you're Japanese, or someone else. All other Asians are just "Chinese"
Me: (I eat ramen, started in China. Look it up.) Ramen
Random Person: Isn't that Japanese?
Me: Ramen was started in China a while ago believe it or not, the way ramen is pronounced is very similar to its original Chinese form, la mian, so I myself call the dish Chinese.
Random Person: The Japanese people probably modernized it and made it better. They should be called different foods.
Me: The style in which it is made hasn't changed at all.
Random Person: (They still won't accept my answer) Come on man just tell me a food that you eat that is ORIGINALLY Chinese.
Me: (saying my food isn't Chinese is insulting enough, so i walk away now)
5. Girl: I hate you stupid (gooks/chinks) how could you guys eat dogs... why can't you guys be a more civilized race like the Japanese?? (Blah blah blah)
Me: *sigh*We don't do that anymore. Notice how this girl just randomly believes that we still eat dogs, yet she doesn't think that Japanese people still slaughter Chinese or Korean people.
Girl: I don't care, I can't believe your people even did that once at one time.
I myself have actually been in all the conversations which are shown above.
