… with different degrees of struggles that we’re implemented by the pale skin via conquests using weapons such as warfare, religion indoctrination, and oppression. And then after pale skin set systems like this into our society, they go around and say things like “We are all human” and confuse “racism” with “prejudice” so that they can keep the system the same way for many years to come.

Shots fired.

You totally missed the point of this, didn’t you?

That were all human? No. What you missed is that it’s a dismissive phase that a lot of people like to say at times to dismiss arguments like the one you clearly missed.
Some of us can’t afford to live on fantasy island.

Japan: we bombed the SHIT out of those guys, TWICE. and during WW2 japanese americans were treated like war criminals and sent to concentration camps. i think they deserve a free pass, don’t you? 

China: we oppressed Japan so hard that they decided to kill 20 million chinese people. and was then taken over by communists. this never would have happened had we not bombed the shit out of japan. twice.

Liberia and Ethiopia: you’re right, white people never touched those guys oh wait slavery

The Japanese do not deserve a ‘free pass’ for WW2. They used Korean and other non-Japanese women for ‘comfort women’ (Basically, sex slaves for the Japanese soldiers) and STILL refuse to admit it. They treated their POWs like absolute shit, breaking the Geneva convention many times. They preformed HORRIFIC medical experiments on the people whose lands they conquered and POWs. They were as guilty as anyone in WW2 and painting them as the victim is so utterly wrong I don’t know where to start.

-The Trans One

Trans one did a good job but I’ll help.

Japan committed many, many atrocities and is, I think, the ONLY country to have no apologised. Obviously this includes the unprovoked attack on pearl harbour
The Japanese invasion of china PREDATES THE START OF WW2. In 1931, September 19, Japan staged an attack on one of their patrols and invaded china, annexing Manchuria.
However, japan and China already had a very rocky past. In WW1 japan occupied china as a “peacekeeping force” after the battle of Tsingtao (now Quingdao). They then made 21 demands of the Chinese government in the hopes of obtaining land.

The Chinese communist takeover actually began before the war. In 1927, there was a civil war in which Mao Zedong (future president of the PRC) led the red army. It ended in 1936 to repel the Japanese invasion but resumed soon after the war.

I think that you also don’t realise that the invasion predates the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. I think it’s inexcusable to say that the despicable things the Japanese did were the fault of the Americans. It’s also important to remember that the bombings were an effective end of the war (the Japanese surrendered less than a month later). The Japanese forces had already left china. It was not the bombings that caused those atrocities but the Japanese.

The Ethiopians were never actually invaded by Europeans until 1935 when ABYSSINIA DECLARED WAR ON ITALY.
If you also want to play the excusing game please justify the: Abbasids,Umayyads, Uzbeks, ottomans, Mughals, Mamluke, Hasaids, Timurids, Hunnic, Golden Hoard, Saffarids, Ming, Qing and many more

Shittiness cannot and should not be excused no matter what the race.
-Prometheus

Excusing the Japanese? What the fuck? Has nobody on this website ever heard of the Rape of Nanking, quite possibly one of the most horrific war crimes of the 20th century, where they RAPED CHINESE WOMEN WITH KATANAS?!?

"we oppressed Japan so hard that they decided to kill 20 million chinese people. and was then taken over by communists. this never would have happened had we not bombed the shit out of japan. twice.”

ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME. TAKE A HISTORY CLASS HOLY CRAP. WE DID NOT “OPPRESS” JAPAN TO START INVADING CHINA. THE REASON THE UNITED STATES WENT TO WAR WITH JAPAN IN THE FIRST PLACE WAS BECAUSE JAPAN BOMBED PEARL HARBOR. AND WHY DID JAPAN BOMB PEARL HARBOR? BECAUSE WE CUT OFF OUR EXPORTS TO THEM. AND WHY DID THE US PLACE AN EMBARGO ON JAPAN? BECAUSE THE JAPANESE WERE RAPING AND PILLAGING CHINESE VILLAGES AND COMMITTING SOME OF THE WORST MASSACRES IN WWII, MANY OF WHICH THEY STILL HAVE NOT APOLOGIZED FOR.

DO NOT TRY TO EXCUSE THE JAPANESE AND LET ALL POC OFF THE HOOK DURING WAR. ALL SIDES COMMITTED TERRIBLE ATROCITIES. NO ONE IS EXCUSED.
