The Japanese people are under enormous stress for obvious reasons. Some of the social and cultural uniqueness has shown through clearly in a good way.
They are not immune to things such as looting, sexual assaults, petty crime, fake donation scams, and countless others. The more you dig the more you will see that Japan has a very active underbelly that is using this disaster as a money making scheme. That is not unusual, what is unusual is a Media bias that is so contrary to facts stated by the Japanese media and people in the area that it gives one pause in even trusting them as a source for information.
Do you not see the racism in claiming one culture to be so totally different from another when survival is at stake?
It's untrue (easily proven) and simply doesn't make sense based on Japan's own history, including the Great Kanto Earthquake and more recently Kobe.
These are not forum fools ignoring facts on the ground.....these are major supposedly trustworthy News gatherers who have apparently let opinion or stereotyping get in the way of real reporting.
Can you show me how it is helpful in ANY way?
This is my first experience with media bias and it's kinda frightening to see the power of disinformation. They are perpetuating myths that serve no one really....no one but themselves and their own personal biases.
Absolutely amazing to observe.
