This sort of incomplete research just feeds the view of racial uniqueness (and superiority) among Japanese and justifies their racism and discrimination against others.
Are the different races not all unique from one another? Perhaps what you meant to say was that there isn't any *significant* uniqueness between them.
If the Japanese believe they are in some way unique and that they need to promote racial homogeneity and protect their cultural, national, and racial identity to preserve that uniqueness, what reasons might one offer to say they shouldn't do so?
Racism and discrimination is one thing, being proud of who you are and wishing to preserve your identity is something else entirely.
"Makes one long for the good-old-days of 3% student loans, doesn't it?"
No it doesn't.
A civilized nation should provide free education to the highest level each person wishes to attain, because that's part of believing that the nation's most most important resource is its people.
But when a government just wants dumb consumers, then it's a very different matter.
So it should be easy to understand why such an education isn't provided in America, since America isn't a nation, but a state.
Negros could carry a lot more weight. With twenty or thirty 1GB hard drives in a backpack, I'm sure one of them could better the pigeon quite easily.
Maybe, but the pigeon might be a little more reliable. At least it wouldn't think of stealing your data medium (i.e., hard drives, USB sticks, etc.) and selling them on the black market.
