ummm... 09.Jun.2003 14:26

volatile tranny

does anyone else think that this is really racist for focusing on a group of contributors from a certain nation? Sure, maybe Japanese companies account for 20% of the contributions, but who accounts for the other 80%? American companies, maybe? Why not target all of them?

Living in Japan 09.Jun.2003 19:52


Japanese people are among the most ignorant in the world because of the coporate society that dominates them. Anything to wake them up. It's not racism if you see the reason for their faults as not based on genetics but on society/culture/history and isolation.

These people are the model for the perfect consumer. They don't know the definition of question.

Racism?? 10.Jun.2003 06:15

not quite...

When 20% of HLS's client base is all coming from one small area, like Japan, and is the only place in the world a client base for HLS could possibly grow if left unchecked -

its not racism, its strategic.

customer campaign 10.Jun.2003 06:18


There is a customer campaign going on where customers are being targeted all over the US, the UK, Europe and Japan.


"these people"?? 11.Jun.2003 18:24

sick of it

considering predominance of whiteness among animal rights peeps in north amerikkka, i'm not surprised by the language, message, and "strategy" here....

"a global week of protests against Japanese customers. These people pay HLS to torture animals. Until YOU put an end to it!"
....yeah, these people. just think of the language here...."against japanese customers"
youre signaling out japanese people, not evil corporate animal abusers!!! think about it!
isnt that language enough, instead of pointing out race?

the way youre going about this isnt what you may intend and that seems to be the problem. you may not intend to come off as a racist, but youre language is soaked in white supremist thought.

and i dont mean to marginalize the contiubtions of people of color all over the world (including n. amerika) who arent white and doin bad ass animal rights actions, but really, the north amerikan animal rights movement is predominantly white for a reason.

i just love it when they take charge and make the world their own.

and problems here are apparent by the defensive posts in response to the mere question of racism.
always on the defense, never with an open ear.
whats up with y'all??????
