My Chinese Friend
I have a friend who was born in China. He came to Japan when we were in elementary school. We soon became friends. In fact, his grandmother is Japanese.
He is a Japanese war-displaced orphan left in China. He has two home countries, China and Japan. And even though his grandmother is Japanese and he lives in Japan, some Japanese discriminate against people like my friend because they were born in China or sometimes their parent is Chinese.
I have heard many times that Chinese are bad or they hate Chinese who live in Japan.
I felt so sad to hear that. Because I think that everyone is different and that nationality means nothing.
I know that there is discrimination in Japan like other countries. I want Japan to overcome it to be a country where we all can live more comfortably.
