Handbook for Newcomers, Migrants, and Immigrants to Japan\Foreign Residents and Naturalized Citizens Association forming NGO\「ジャパニーズ・オンリー 小樽入浴拒否問題と人種差別」(明石書店)JAPANESE ONLY:  The Otaru Hot Springs Case and Racial Discrimination in Japan
My next “JUST BE CAUSE” Japan Times Column out tomorrow, March 3

As the JBC column begins its second year in the Japan Times, I come out swinging, talking about people who recycle long-dead and buried debates (in this case, racial discrimination) for their own personal gain. In response to the recent debates on the subject in the Japan Times.

I feel it’s one of my best columns yet. It crystallized a number of ideas I’ve had floating around in my head into concise mindsets. Especially the concept of the “zombie debate”.

It’ll be out tomorrow, Tuesday (Wednesday in the provinces). Get a copy! Arudou Debito in Sapporo

UPDATE:  Here’s a link to it.

I’ll have it up on by noon tomorrow (Weds) for comments and feedback.
