Country Quotes

The sense of perspective that interaction with multiple cultures gives you I find to be extremely valuable, because it allows you to see the structure of a country with greater clarity, and gives you a sense of mental independence.

In short, Japan is not an outlier in terms of racism, but it is in terms of protections against it.
