I was talking about racism in an American context because I don't have any other experience with racism in any other social context. What kind of a pretentious prick would I be if I started talking about "race" in Japan as if I were an authority on the matter even if I know nothing about racial politics in Japan or whether they even have any conception of "race" as we do in America?
This is ridiculous. No one's inherently racist. Race is a social construct.
