From the New York Times news/sports section:

Japan’s Diverse Olympic Stars Reflect a Country That’s Changing (Slowly)

Multiracial athletes like Naomi Osaka and Rui Hachimura are helping to redefine what it means to be Japanese. But they are often still seen as outsiders.

By Hannah Beech and Hikari Hida
July 24, 2021, 3:17 a.m. ET

TOKYO — When the Japanese Olympic team marched at the opening ceremony in Tokyo on Friday, towering over the rest of the delegation was the flag-bearer Rui Hachimura, a rising N.B.A. star who was born and raised in Japan. …

At least 35 members of the 583-strong Japanese Olympic team are multiracial. They are considered medal contenders in tennis and judo and will compete in boxing, sailing, sprinting, rugby and fencing, among other sports.

Their ranks include two of the highest-wattage athletes on Team Japan: Mr. Hachimura and Naomi Osaka, the tennis champion whose father is Haitian American and whose mother is Japanese. On Friday, Ms. Osaka, 23, climbed a flight of stairs etched into a pyramid shaped like Mount Fuji and lit the Olympic cauldron perched on top.

The Japanese should have gotten the 100% Japanese baseball pitcher/slugger Shohei Ohtani, who is currently flabbergasting the North American MLB with his Babe Ruth-like combo of pitching and home run hitting, to light the torch.

That two of the opening ceremony’s star roles went to multiracial athletes underscores how eager Japan is to present a diverse face to the world. Ms. Osaka’s and Mr. Hachimura’s popularity in Japan had already been confirmed when Nissin, the instant noodle manufacturer, affixed their faces to Cup Noodle packaging, an advertising honor akin to appearing on a cereal box.

But even as Japan celebrates the accomplishments of its “hafu” athletes — “half,” as in half-Japanese and half-something else — it must still contend with xenophobia in a society whose ideas of nationhood are tied to race.

Japan’s growing roster of multiracial Olympians reflects how the country, with its fast-aging population, has had to crack open its doors to immigration, despite a powerful tradition of isolation. Today, about one in 50 children born in Japan has a foreign-born parent, according to the nation’s health ministry.

… An unspoken hierarchy in Japan prizes paler skin over darker shades. Darker-skinned Japanese endure racist barbs. (Japanese with one parent from other East Asian countries can face bullying, too.)

Mr. Okazawa, the boxer, grew up in a snowbound city in northern Japan, reciting Buddhist sutras with his grandmother. He has never been to Ghana and does not speak English. Still, he said, he was recruited to his high school boxing team because a classmate thought he looked the part.

Which turned out to be accurate.

The country’s sporting establishment has hailed the successes of mixed-race athletes. But their accomplishments are often characterized in the discredited language of eugenics: fast-twitch muscles, explosive reflexes, inherent physical power.

The discredited language of eugenics is discredited, otherwise it would appear to explain a lot about, say, why the anchor man on 2016 Japanese silver medal team in the 4x100m relay team was half-black.

…“If you are hafu, people will always compare high performance with some sort of genetic triumph,” Mr. Sumoto said. In the nation’s popular culture, Black Japanese are often slotted into limited career categories: athlete, rapper, beauty queen.

Just like all over the world

One motto of the Tokyo Games is “unity in diversity,” a point made with a fleet of drones that hovered over the Olympic Stadium on Friday and formed a giant, shimmering globe, shortly before Ms. Osaka lit the cauldron. …

But Tokyo itself remains remarkably monochromatic. Only about 4 percent of residents were born outside Japan, according to the city government — about twice the national figure. (By contrast, more than 35 percent of London and New York residents were born abroad.)

  4. We are in the midst of a collective mental breakdown caused by the ascendancy of women and the withdrawal of men. All females are now portrayed as heroines rising in victory against the unseen forces of oppression. She is the Hero With a Thousand Hairstyles. It is the plot basis for all new Young Adult fiction. If she is a Woman of Color then no special accoutrements are necessary and the product placement is implied. If she has pale skin then those colorful shoes or the latest digital device enabling her artistic/scientific genius can signal her struggle on the path to woke self-actualization. Fat black chicks running uphill with resolve to conquer their weight. Devoted black fathers changing diapers and just being great dads. Effeminate white fellows prepping Covid shots for intact black families. A poet reads loudly, something about how we conquer hate and will not stand down because it makes some people feel uncomfortable. And my personal favorite, the public service tutorial on Anti-Asian Hate featuring cartoon white racists abusing orientals, who are then protected through “Bystander Intervention” whereby a WOC uses her multi-tasking skills to delegate a crowd response that saves the Asians from what are obviously Trump supporters.

    I'm sympathetic to this line of thought. The attitudes/behavior of women in the West often seems to be a disaster.

    But this is not causal. The mental breakdown is caused by minoritarianism--pushed and propagandized to dominance by Jews.

    The problem is that the rejection of minoritarianism is ... logic, reason, math; empiricism; standing and speaking for truth; defense, pride in your people, history, culture. Male traits.

    It does not involve ... being "nice" and desiring conformity. Female traits. And once minoritarianism gained market share female traits of conformity and compliance are absolutely toxic.

    The Western disease is that Western males were too "nice", obliging, "fair". To minorities and to women. It created a perfect storm of destruction. We allowed minoritarianism--and its excellent propagandists--to first gain a foothold, then establish itself. And once that happens then our own (now liberated) women instead of being allies, become defectors--demanding compliance with the new ideology ... which literally means the death of civilization.

    What's happened in the West is a stark lesson to any culture, that wants to survive. You should never allow hostile minorities to have any presence, even a foothold. And regardless, you can never allow any minority--anyone but yourselves--to create the dominant ideology/narrative. Once you do that--even if your men sober up and object--you'll have a huge slice of your own women compliant with the new narrative, ergo basically traitors.

My experience visiting Japan was as powerful as my experience going to majority Black schools starting in middle school. Not because the Japanese appeared in any way inferior, but because they seemed so superior. Even compared to WASPS.

    You probably don't follow tennis, but the rest of the world does and Kei Nishikori is better known around the world than Shohei Ohtani and probably as well known as Naomi Osaka, who figures large in American news. Kei Nishikori is 100% Japanese, grew up in Japan, and acts with dignity on the world tennis circuit. He would have been a better choice than pink-haired George Foreman in drag.

    Also screw Naomi Osaka. She veers between her Japanese and woke persona as it suits her, and claims to have anxiety and cannot participate in press conferences but somehow is features in major magazines on a regular basis. Japan can keep her – she should make it her full time home.

    @Arclight

    Osaka is quite a trip and self-promoter. Talking to the press makes her too anxious after a match, so she paid a fine, and skipped both the French and Wimbledon majors. This action gained her praise from other athletes who claim similar issues talking to the press. And it certainly raised her profile, where her name in women's tennis has now eclipsed Serena's.

    But she's not too shy to bear her body in a bikini on the cover of Sports Illustrated. I'll bet she talked to the press after that issue. And I'll bet she's not too shy to talk to the press during the fan-less Olympics, where the pressure is on her to win a gold medal for her native Japan, though she's spent most of her life in the States.

    Last year, when she won the pandemic plagued US Open, she publicly supported BLM, and, during her seven match wins, wore a different black mask onto the court each with the name of a killed person of color. By her actions, Osaka's no shrinking violet.

    But Tokyo itself remains remarkably monochromatic. Only about 4 percent of residents were born outside Japan, according to the city government — about twice the national figure. (By contrast, more than 35 percent of London and New York residents were born abroad.)

    Diversity is ultimately brought about by one group, ahem, which Japan is lacking from (at least from within).

    “…it was clear from the moment of her appointment as Minister for Asylum and Immigration during Tony Blair’s first term that Barbara Roche was seeking a complete rethink of Britain’s immigration and asylum policies.” …

    “Wherever there was any criticism of her policy, either internally or externally, Roche dismissed it as racist. Indeed Roche – who criticised colleagues for being too white – insisted that even the mention of immigration policy was racist. What she and a few others around her sought was a wholesale change of British society. Roche – a descendant of East End Jews – believed that immigration was only ever a good thing. Ten years after the changes she had brought about she told an interviewer with satisfaction, ‘I love the diversity of London. I just feel comfortable.’”

    I suppose that Jews, being a minority, feel more comfortable or feel more in their element in places where there isn't a mono-ethnic majority, I suppose to be less conspicuous, and also because of their paranoia about persecution. However, is that really "good for the Jews", long term?

    Also, I don't know if this fanaticism of multiculturalism by Jews seems to be a more recent development; for centuries, Jews lived as a minority among majority ethnic countries, and while of course there were problems for both sides, it didn't seem to be their main concern.

    Btw, Jews can be persecuted just as well in multicultural countries, or perhaps even more. As Tom Lehrer used to sing, "Oh the protestants hate the catholics and the catholics hate the protestants, and the hindus hate the muslims, and everybody hates the jews"

    @Hannah Katz

    Very few. Even when the other hafu is white, it is usually a white father. Only in the case of essentially imported brides, do you see majority Japanese fathers--that is when the other hafu is Filipino, Thai, etc

    There are many subcultures of Japanese girls, and one is a black-worshipping in which the girls wear hip-hop clothes, put their in corn rows, and hang out around American GIs. It probably has a real name, but I like to call it "mud shark sushi".

  36. If Osaka hadn’t lit the flame it would have stayed unlit.

  37. But Tokyo itself remains remarkably monochromatic. Only about 4 percent of residents were born outside Japan, according to the city government — about twice the national figure. (By contrast, more than 35 percent of London and New York residents were born abroad.)

    Moscow is even more monochromatic, although perhaps less mono-national: 92% Russians, the rest mostly Ukrainians etc.

  38. Osaka, of course, does not speak a word of Japanese other than greetings and pleasantries and needs an interpreter because she cannot understand it either.

    This is a lie, she speaks fine, functional Japanese, but is not fluent.

  39. Unfortunately, I can see this being somewhat effective in cracking the shell of Japanese ethnocentrism. The power of sportsball is unrivalled – especially on the impressionable young – and ‘glob’ (or whoever it is that coordinates these offensives) knows it.

    During the George Floyd riots I saw shocked Japanese athletes retweeting articles from the Japan Times which claimed police were a ‘leading cause of death’ for US black men. Ah, such naivety…

    I doubt they’ll progress so far so fast as say, Sweden (let alone the core west of USA/GB/France) but I’d guess lasting damage will be done, before the current Western model is totally discredited (surely can’t be more than 20-30 years? far too long for us here, though). Too bad, they have a nice/interesting country and history, and I wouldn’t wish what’s happened to us to anyone, for the sake of a fad.

    I’ve noted a growing number of half-black athletes from unusual places over the last 10 years; in the sport I follow most closely (wrestling) Japan has a teen girl hafu, who apparently was raised by her single (Japanese) mother, in poor circumstances, but her success at sport has brought some cheer to the household (funny how these patterns repeat everywhere, huh?) – there’s also one from Poland, and Ukraine has a half-Rwandan male competing at a high level whose father came over in Soviet times for air force training. Those wandering soldiers are quite the weapon…
    France, of course, is the unrivalled leader in ‘blackening’ of their sports teams and also in their culture/media representatives. It’s almost comical if it wasn’t so sad. The Latino-isation of the USA is also growingly obvious in its sportspeople.

    Stop Erasing Naomi Osaka’s Blackness
    By Elliot Sang

    [MORE]

    Biraciality makes people uncomfortable. In society, we communicate narrow ideas of racial identity, as if identity can fit into distinct, narrow pockets. Biracial public figures like Naomi Osaka prove it cannot. Osaka is a tennis star who represents Japan in competition; she is Japanese and American with dual citizenship; she is ethnically Haitian and Japanese.

    Monoracial Asian nations, like Japan, often respond to mixed-race people with hesitation at best and out-and-out bigotry at most. The fact that a Japanese star, featured in Japanese ads and winning sporting awards for Japan, is not only mixed-race but Black, shows an important amount of progress in Asian race relations. So there is something empowering about merely calling Naomi Osaka Japanese, whether it be in headlines or advertisements. And it’s a correct assertion: she is Japanese. Her biraciality does not make her less so.

    But we must also seek to empower her and respect her as a Black woman, singularly. Just as her Blackness does not make her less Japanese, her Japanese-ness does not make her less Black. We as Asians can borrow her for a story, but we can’t claim her for a narrative.
    And we cannot afford to gloss over her identity as a Black woman, which includes significant aspects of her physical appearance, in this day and age.

    But as well-intentioned and understandable as this tweet is, it does open up some issues. For one, the Time piece in question does not erase Osaka’s Haitian identity; it is included as part of the story. This response is pointed toward the AJ+ tweet, which says she is “the first Japanese woman to win a Grand Slam.” The tweeter is asserting that AJ+ should have/could have changed this to “the first Japanese-Haitian woman to win a Grand Slam.” But that change would be uniquely problematic.

    Part of the reason biracial people struggle to be accepted is in the constant necessity to note their biraciality. Osaka is the first Japanese woman to win a Grand Slam; there’s a strength in that statement. It’s saying she is Japanese, and that in itself has power to it. The accomplishment does not count less because Osaka is Black, and Osaka is no less Japanese because of her Blackness.

    I love and relate to Naomi Osaka as a fellow biracial Asian. I am Chinese and Dominican: both of those things. Yet I squint and squirm when I’m only referred to as one or the other: “Well, I’m not quite Chinese, am I?” Identifying as both often feels like identifying as neither. (It can also mean identifying as either: but we’ll talk about transraciality another day.) Growing up biracial means quickly learning that the language we have for these identities is insufficient.

    Most bi-ethnic people tend to choose one identity to identify with if they can pass for it. It seems to make them more content. To have an identity, a tribe. For those who can’t like the bi-racial author of the piece and Osaka, it tends to be a constant source of angst. Even in the final paragraph the author reveals his incoherent demands about Osaka are just fronts and copes, even he doesn’t believe Osaka is just as Japanese as the Emperor anymore than he believes he is as Chinese as Xi Jinping.

    He wants people to call Osaka Japanese and accept her as 100% precisely because she isn’t, he wants to redefine what Japanese means to soothe his own neuroses. Which, for a half-Chinese, half-Dominican living in the US is pretty weird.

    Replies: @follyofwar, @Desiderius

    Osaka is quite a trip and self-promoter. Talking to the press makes her too anxious after a match, so she paid a fine, and skipped both the French and Wimbledon majors. This action gained her praise from other athletes who claim similar issues talking to the press. And it certainly raised her profile, where her name in women’s tennis has now eclipsed Serena’s.

    But she’s not too shy to bear her body in a bikini on the cover of Sports Illustrated. I’ll bet she talked to the press after that issue. And I’ll bet she’s not too shy to talk to the press during the fan-less Olympics, where the pressure is on her to win a gold medal for her native Japan, though she’s spent most of her life in the States.

    Last year, when she won the pandemic plagued US Open, she publicly supported BLM, and, during her seven match wins, wore a different black mask onto the court each with the name of a killed person of color. By her actions, Osaka’s no shrinking violet.

    Japan’s hafus on parade during the Olympics has the feel of a PR campaign (the NYT certainly ain’t buying it). I expect the Japanese are watching America’s suicide by diversity, and taking measures to avoid our fate.

  67. “Only about 4 percent of residents were born outside Japan, according to the city government — about twice the national figure.”

    Early in the story the claim is made that 1 in 50 children born in Japan have a foreign parent. Wouldn’t this add up to considerably more than 2% of the national figure? Or perhaps it will over time?

    The math doesn’t quite sound accurate. Could it also be that Western Media for their vaunted arrogance, aren’t as fluent in Japanese language as the Japanese are fluent in English, and thus can give out various statistics they think will satisfy the foreigners regarding diversity in their nation?

    But i get a few paragraphs in


    But even as Japan celebrates the accomplishments of its “hafu” athletes — “half,” as in half-Japanese and half-something else — it must still contend with xenophobia in a society whose ideas of nationhood are tied to race.

    Japan’s growing roster of multiracial Olympians reflects how the country, with its fast-aging population, has had to crack open its doors to immigration, despite a powerful tradition of isolation. Today, about one in 50 children born in Japan has a foreign-born parent, according to the nation’s health ministry.

    And thinking, “this annoying shit was written by girls.” The girls with BAs. With their tedious hall monitor vibe–hall monitors for the minoritarian, globohomo, conventional party line.

    Japan just isn’t doing enough! Bad thought thinkers who think being Japanese has something to do with being Japanese are still out there! They have to comply! … they have just have to … it’s required!

    Then this gem:

    But Tokyo itself remains remarkably monochromatic. Only about 4 percent of residents were born outside Japan, according to the city government — about twice the national figure. (By contrast, more than 35 percent of London and New York residents were born abroad.)

    As statement of the situation–fine. But “remarkably”? That’s called normal. I go to a city in Japan–full of Japanese. Go to a city in China–full of Chinese. Go to a city in India–full of Indians. Normal. That’s how civilization works. You’re supposed to go to London and find it full of the English! (With a sprinkling of other British Isles types.)

    A third foreigners? Those are places that are melting down–the nation eroding in them. Any flurry of activity is like a sick person being colonized by all sorts of bacterial parasites feeding on the soon to be corpse.

    The West created the clearest elucidation of concepts like “logic” and “math”, as well as empiricism–“hey that’s how the world really works”. But basic logic and math seems to be beyond so many supposedly “educated” people now.

    I realize, if they didn’t exist, the NYT would order some Y-chromosomed Jews or gentile soy-boys to spew similar drivel. But holy cow, these bovine headed hall monitor girls are a curse upon civilization.

    It’s an interview with an Alabama doctor named Brytney Cobia who gleefully tells Covid patients who beg for the covid vaccine that it’s too late and that she is going to intubate and kill them (because begging for the vaccine is a definite sign of ARDs) and then after she’s killed them with ARDs protocol, even though they are Covid sufferers, she tells their family and friends to get the vaccine

    So Brytney Cobia is the daughter-in-law of the attorney Paula Cobia who was the woman representing the accusers of Roy Moore

    Paula Cobia’s twitter is a non-stop multiple twitter post daily barrage of white, conservative, Trump hatred to the point of ‘Does this woman take a break to use the restroom?’

    Unfortunately, I can see this being somewhat effective in cracking the shell of Japanese ethnocentrism. The power of sportsball is unrivalled - especially on the impressionable young - and 'glob' (or whoever it is that coordinates these offensives) knows it.

    During the George Floyd riots I saw shocked Japanese athletes retweeting articles from the Japan Times which claimed police were a 'leading cause of death' for US black men. Ah, such naivety...

    I doubt they'll progress so far so fast as say, Sweden (let alone the core west of USA/GB/France) but I'd guess lasting damage will be done, before the current Western model is totally discredited (surely can't be more than 20-30 years? far too long for us here, though). Too bad, they have a nice/interesting country and history, and I wouldn't wish what's happened to us to anyone, for the sake of a fad.

    I've noted a growing number of half-black athletes from unusual places over the last 10 years; in the sport I follow most closely (wrestling) Japan has a teen girl hafu, who apparently was raised by her single (Japanese) mother, in poor circumstances, but her success at sport has brought some cheer to the household (funny how these patterns repeat everywhere, huh?) - there's also one from Poland, and Ukraine has a half-Rwandan male competing at a high level whose father came over in Soviet times for air force training. Those wandering soldiers are quite the weapon...
    France, of course, is the unrivalled leader in 'blackening' of their sports teams and also in their culture/media representatives. It's almost comical if it wasn't so sad. The Latino-isation of the USA is also growingly obvious in its sportspeople.

    “Wherever there was any criticism of her policy, either internally or externally, Roche dismissed it as racist. Indeed Roche – who criticised colleagues for being too white – insisted that even the mention of immigration policy was racist. What she and a few others around her sought was a wholesale change of British society. Roche – a descendant of East End Jews – believed that immigration was only ever a good thing. Ten years after the changes she had brought about she told an interviewer with satisfaction, ‘I love the diversity of London. I just feel comfortable.’”

    Also, I don’t know if this fanaticism of multiculturalism by Jews seems to be a more recent development; for centuries, Jews lived as a minority among majority ethnic countries, and while of course there were problems for both sides, it didn’t seem to be their main concern.

    Btw, Jews can be persecuted just as well in multicultural countries, or perhaps even more. As Tom Lehrer used to sing, “Oh the protestants hate the catholics and the catholics hate the protestants, and the hindus hate the muslims, and everybody hates the jews”

    We are in the midst of a collective mental breakdown caused by the ascendancy of women and the withdrawal of men.

    I’m sympathetic to this line of thought. The attitudes/behavior of women in the West often seems to be a disaster.

    But this is not causal. The mental breakdown is caused by minoritarianism–pushed and propagandized to dominance by Jews.

    The problem is that the rejection of minoritarianism is … logic, reason, math; empiricism; standing and speaking for truth; defense, pride in your people, history, culture. Male traits.

    It does not involve … being “nice” and desiring conformity. Female traits. And once minoritarianism gained market share female traits of conformity and compliance are absolutely toxic.

    The Western disease is that Western males were too “nice”, obliging, “fair”. To minorities and to women. It created a perfect storm of destruction. We allowed minoritarianism–and its excellent propagandists–to first gain a foothold, then establish itself. And once that happens then our own (now liberated) women instead of being allies, become defectors–demanding compliance with the new ideology … which literally means the death of civilization.

    What’s happened in the West is a stark lesson to any culture, that wants to survive. You should never allow hostile minorities to have any presence, even a foothold. And regardless, you can never allow any minority–anyone but yourselves–to create the dominant ideology/narrative. Once you do that–even if your men sober up and object–you’ll have a huge slice of your own women compliant with the new narrative, ergo basically traitors.

    Neither was the Nanjing Atrocity (so referred to by professional historians) that took place Winter 1937/8 a dealbreaker to cancel the Olympics, according to the West. And Chiang had bigger fish to fry at the time, i.e. mobilizing for Battle of Wuhan.

    Diversity is ultimately brought about by one group, ahem, which Japan is lacking from (at least from within).

    “…it was clear from the moment of her appointment as Minister for Asylum and Immigration during Tony Blair’s first term that Barbara Roche was seeking a complete rethink of Britain’s immigration and asylum policies.” …

    “Wherever there was any criticism of her policy, either internally or externally, Roche dismissed it as racist. Indeed Roche – who criticised colleagues for being too white – insisted that even the mention of immigration policy was racist. What she and a few others around her sought was a wholesale change of British society. Roche – a descendant of East End Jews – believed that immigration was only ever a good thing. Ten years after the changes she had brought about she told an interviewer with satisfaction, ‘I love the diversity of London. I just feel comfortable.’”

    The USS Panay Incident was clearly not a dealbreaker since Japan forfeited the 1940 Games to the IOC, on her volition on July 1938.

    Neither was the Nanjing Atrocity (so referred to by professional historians) that took place Winter 1937/8 a dealbreaker to cancel the Olympics, according to the West. And Chiang had bigger fish to fry at the time, i.e. mobilizing for Battle of Wuhan.

    If Japan had accepted German mediation and made peace with Chiang Kai-Shek in late 1937, they would have two more un-nuked cities and got to host the 1940 Summer Games…

    Well, multi-ethnic empires were the primary form of statehood before WW1. Sometimes the melting pots, macro-ethnicities do work, white Americans, the German people and Han Chinese are examples.

    The PRC, despite many false starts, enters modernization on her own terms. The legitimacy of PRC’s claim on Tibet, is not especially stronger than that of Japan’s on Manchuria. But at least Tibetans are racially similar enough and relations are managed ok, so far.

    I completely disagree with this. The historic Chinese empire had a claim to Tibet that was no stronger than a potential claim on India or Turkey. But the PRC has no claim on Tibet because the PRC is not the continuation of the Chinese empire. The Han people and Xi Jinping stand in relation to Tibet via the PRC just as the Russian people and party leaders stood in relation to Eastern Europe via the USSR. It is just international Communism. When Xi Jinping refers to "Chinese people of all ethnicities" in his recent speech, he puts the lie to the historical claims. Uighurs, Mongolians, Tibetans.... they should all be set free with their own ethno-national homelands.

    I even wonder if her real name includes ‘Osaka’, sure, a very few people have town names as surnames, but not cities, nobody is called Ms. X Tokyo, Mr. W. Kyoto, Mrs. Z Sendai, Miss Y Fukuoka, Mme. U. Edo, etc. Also do not think anybody is really named ‘Naomi Osaka’ at birth.

    I call sham.

    Worth keeping in mind, I intend to look for more on Japanese ‘net when less busy, so much apparent fakery.

    Our media may try to arrange an appearance by her mother after she wins the tennis, which should not even be an Olympic event, but I suspect that her mother is too estranged from both her former impregnator and the daughter to do so.

    Am certainly hoping that she, the mother, is staying stubborn on that.

    Japan’s growing roster of multiracial Olympians reflects how the country, with its fast-aging population, has had to crack open its doors to immigration, despite a powerful tradition of isolation.
     
    Both the examples cited are persons whose immigrant parents came to Japan as students and who just kind of floated around, they weren't recruited to fill labour 'shortages'. (Read: lower wages)

    The only immigrants Japan has recruited for employment are from South East Asia (Whose long term presence in Japan is not really encouraged and whose children have yet to appear anywhere in Japan's athletic roster) and then only in the tiny numbers that could ever be justified. This is a weird neoliberal obsession that stems from a level of autism that is staggering. In China they now have fully automated convenience stores, as does the US with it's small numbers of Amazon stores. So one of the only roles immigrants are recruited for in Japan is fast to become an obsolete one.

    In truth no country is in danger of ceasing to exist due to cyclical demographic trends. One generation facing an unfavourable situation to have children is superseded by one which begets a boom. Thus has it ever been. And how the problem is ameliorated by policies which further reduce fertility is beyond me.

    So people in Japan suffer higher taxes or lower public services with more money going to pay for elder care for the 10-20 years it takes for the baby boom generation to retire/die in. So what? How is that so intolerable that the solution is to ethnically displace the population in a way that will assuredly cause much trauma and lower quality of life for everyone?

    Just say you hate and fear cohesive societies and decent wages already, the pretense is making my blood boil.

    Foreign guest workers are only there so long as they fill the need for why they were brought in.

Once automation really starts to take over you can bet that those people will not have their contracts renewed and they’ll be sent home. I’d bank on that.

    We are in the midst of a collective mental breakdown caused by the ascendancy of women and the withdrawal of men.
     
    I'm sympathetic to this line of thought. The attitudes/behavior of women in the West often seems to be a disaster.

    But this is not causal. The mental breakdown is caused by minoritarianism--pushed and propagandized to dominance by Jews.

    The problem is that the rejection of minoritarianism is ... logic, reason, math; empiricism; standing and speaking for truth; defense, pride in your people, history, culture. Male traits.

    It does not involve ... being "nice" and desiring conformity. Female traits. And once minoritarianism gained market share female traits of conformity and compliance are absolutely toxic.

    The Western disease is that Western males were too "nice", obliging, "fair". To minorities and to women. It created a perfect storm of destruction. We allowed minoritarianism--and its excellent propagandists--to first gain a foothold, then establish itself. And once that happens then our own (now liberated) women instead of being allies, become defectors--demanding compliance with the new ideology ... which literally means the death of civilization.

    What's happened in the West is a stark lesson to any culture, that wants to survive. You should never allow hostile minorities to have any presence, even a foothold. And regardless, you can never allow any minority--anyone but yourselves--to create the dominant ideology/narrative. Once you do that--even if your men sober up and object--you'll have a huge slice of your own women compliant with the new narrative, ergo basically traitors.

    Of course the NYT chooses to hype the racial angle, but they do that in just about every article they publish now don’t they?

    I think that’s reading too much into things. Hachimura and Osaka were the logical choices. Nothing to do with race.

    Rui Hachimura is one of the most famous Japanese athletes in the world now, and he’s tall, which is something countries always look for in a flag bearer.

    Naomi Osaka is the most famous Japanese athlete in the world. (Maybe the most famous female athlete in the world?) So it makes perfect sense for her to light the torch. Compare her to other candidates:

    Shohei Ohtani: No way the Angles are gonna let the likely AL MVP miss several games.

    Yuzuru Hanyu: The most successful recent Japanese Olympian. But he’s a figure skater and this is the summer games.

    Rikako Ikee: Very promising swimmer who overcame leukemia and somehow managed to get back to Olympic form. Definitely an inspiring story, but this is her first Olympics and she hasn’t won anything yet.
