Becoming Xenophobic

Today I joined my new job training. I just witnessed how ordinary people have become Xenophobic these days in Japan.


Maybe it is because Japan has been in big recession and Chinese ship intruded Japanese territorital sea which caused diplomatic turmoil just recently.


In office, one worker talked about what he witnessed on the platform in the station when Chinese person yelled to a police officer. He said "it was like moster attack." Then his colleagues followed that saying "That is very Chinese personality. That is how they deal with us. See how they bumped to Coast Guard Ship."

My trainer said to me "Be careful these days our customers have become like stupid Americans who always want to sue us."


Japanese are islanders so we generally act like this but these days people have become more aggressive than before. I do not like this tendency.
