    The NAACP doesn't care what race you are, unless that race is black.

    i'm a minority (hispanic.) not particularly worried about race and the JET program, though this may have something to do with being from nyc where race is a strange and varied thing. if anything minority JETs may have a slight advantage in that they've possibly already experienced the joys of racial discrimination and will have less to adjust to in japan.

    on the other hand, most anyone can say that they've been discriminated against at some point for being different in some way, even if it's not race. so all newcomers can just look forward to experiencing that feeling daily, yay!

    and after all it could be worse... [enter horror story here]

    Racism boils down to a learned, collective fear. I think that fear often evolves from a group mentality. Usually that leads to outright hate or distrust. The silver lining might be that racism can be deprogrammed like any other learned behavior or belief.
