Response to is assimilation a bad thing?
"As I understand it, racist attitudes in Japan may well tend to encourage or even force the assimilation process, but the process would happen anyway."
I think its the other way around NM, racism in Japan against Japanese born people of Korean descent prevents rather than encourages more assimilation. Shunned by many Japanese; ethnic Koreans stick more closely together and to their "Korean identity".
