UN Report – Japan has Serious Racial Discrimination Problem

In two days of deliberations, the Members of the Committee stated that Japan has a ‘serious’ problem regarding racial discrimination within its society. This, in part, has been due to the rise of extreme Japanese nationalism, and corresponding right-wing groups (and individuals) that through the deliberate generation of hate-speech in newspapers, through the Internet, the television and other forms of media, that are designed to promote racism and racial superiority (by declaring all non-Japanese to be culturally and racially inferior).

Racist Daily Mail Wrong about North Korea

In 2013 the (rightwing) British media (falsely) reported that the government of North Korea legally limits the number of hairstyles available to men and women to just twenty eight. The number of twenty-eight was said to be the number by which Socialism can resist the onslaught of Capitalism. According to the (rightwing) Daily Mail and City Metro newspapers (21.2.2013), pictures of haircuts on a barbershop wall in North Korea – eighteen for women and ten for men – are the product of DPRK legislation limiting the hairstyles that North Korean citizens can choose.
