Japan-based writer Baye McNeil recently waged a successful one-man campaign against the (re)appearance of blackface on Japanese television, raising enough hell to persuade Fuji Television to remove the offending segment from its "Music Fair" broadcast.

You've got a long way to go, though, Japan.

In February, conservative former politician Ayako Sono wrote in a newspaper column that although rapidly aging Japan badly needs to import workers, people of different races should live separately. Sono wrote, "Ever since I learned of the situation in South Africa 20 to 30 years ago, I have come to think that living in residential areas divided into whites, Asians and blacks is better."
