Remember Sam is Japanese. No love lost between them and the Chinese. Asian people are just as racist as the rest of us.
I spent 14 years in South Korea and Japan.
The racism is palpable. AmerAsian kids are abandoned and usually can only find a DDD (difficult, dangerous, dirty) job.
Nothing like walking by an establishment and seeing a sign “No Foreigners Allowed”
“Asian” is about as descriptive as “American” is when you refer to someone from North, Central, or South America. “AAPI” is one of the stupidest constructs the progressives have come up with. China and Japan have totally different languages, cultures and histories.
If I was Sam, I’d be taking Jan to the woodshed.
I would too. With a fine piece of hickory.
Isn’t Sam half-Okinawan, not mainland Japanese?
Sam as a “heroic” (got to be a female version of that term) red-head semi -Asian “Merican” doesn’t fit any stereotype. Then again, no one that I have met The Turks, Lebanese, and “Gyptians” were “typical” “Americans”. Then, again nor were the Irish. All individually American. Weird that.
Caucasians are among the least ‘racist’ overall.
The media, liberal white girls, and professional racebaiters (okay, that’s redundant) may say different but there’s money involved and green is everyone’s favourite colour.

As part Martian, isn’t that statement a bit planetist to be bandying about casually here?
Nope. We all love Martians. And Orions, for that matter.
Race baiters call it racism, but racism isn’t very common. It’s actually culturism that is the usual problem. In the USA its not skin color that most people have issues with, but real clashes of cultural values. Race baiters falsely label those culture values clashes as racism. The Chinese/Japanese thing is an example of the different cultures and values clash. Same basic race though. We’re all human race, it’s our cultures and values that are different and conflicting, and that’s okay! Quit letting race batters label it as racism.
Don’t leave home without it …
When nations and cultures are subject to excessive stress, they revert to tribalism. E.g., Yugoslavia, Zimbabwe, Somalia, and Arab – Persian or Sunni – Shiite relations in Islamic theocracies.
Great Britain and the Unites States spent treasure and shed blood to end the slave trade in areas under their control. Although far from perfect, for a while they became the least “racist” nations in history. Until politicians figured out the power of race baiting. In the United States that began in 1964 with the “(not so) Great Society.”
Of course, slavery has been and is still widely practiced in over one-third of the world. Exercise for the student to identify where slavery is still widely practiced either de jure or de facto.
In the United States, I can’t freely negotiate for my labor. Percentage of my labor taken by Federal, State, and Local government. The government can take my home for its own use and decide for me what fair compensation is. They can limit my working hours. They can regulate how I use my property. They can criminalize what I say and where I say it. They can decide where I build, what I build, and how I build. They can decide what weapons I can own.
I could go on, but you see the point.
One of the first instinctive human behaviors is the identification of ‘other’. I remember seeing a sociology experiment from Britain where they had two young girls each alone in a grocery store aisle. The program showed them cautiously approaching each other and making an acquaintance. When they introduced a third young girl a few minutes later, the first two turned to face her together. They’d already formed a sort of alliance, and the new girl was an outsider.
There was nothing to differentiate the three girls. Not age, race, ethnicity, or dress. It was fairly fascinating to watch. It’s not (necessarily) a matter of race, but grouping that makes us tribal.
All along the Mediterranean coast of Africa…
There is an actual definition of “racism”. It is in no way related to what the Left intends when they hurl the doublethink ungood word “racism” at anyone.
There is the Left’s bad-faith usage of the word “racism”. It is in no way related to what they – far under the table – mean to accomplish by smearing their enemies with the word.
There is the common acceptance of the Left’s bad-faith usage of their totally redefined word “racism” (which now, in the real world, means absolutely nothing). 98% of everyone has fallen into this trap.
By the ‘left,’ if you refuse or object to another group of any sort to dominate, kill, take all that you own or just replace you because the invaders has better intersection virtual scores or ESG or DEI (DIE) scores or CCP social scores, then you are racist. Hungary (Magyars) are called racist and the EU is trying to dru. Them because besides the millions of people they have accepted into the nation recently (not counting many more millions in the last few hundred years), that is not enough. EU states want to kick them out of the EU because Hungary refuses to glorify a 1200 year plus enemy group that controlled half the nation once, and still demands that Hungary be conquered by the invaders.
A Hungarian city was eliminated from a final four in the regular most beautiful European City competition because it didn’t look Ethnic. There were mainly Hungarian people visible. That was forbidden.
That Afghan former US interpreter apparently murdered by 4 District of Columbia natives.
This country and world done gone crazy from the controller tyranny.
