I drunk and talk with my Japanese friends at yesterday's night.(I'm Japanese too)
And I told them
"In forign country, now Jap or Japs are not racial words. My friends told and taught for me only short of Japan and Japanese. I don't think Jap is racial word now. How do you think?"
A part of them said "I didn't know that!" and understand for my speech.
But the majority friends didn't understand and objected to me.
Mr.A : I can't believe it! Jap is only a scorn!
Mr.B : If your speech is truth, why they use "JPN" as international write? They must be use "JAP"!
Ms.C : Are you kidding or get drunk too much Tommy?
Mr.D : A scene of Takeshi Kitano's movie...eh...what...
Mrs.D : "Fuckin' Jap KURAI WAKARUYO BAKAYAROU!" (I understand Fuckin' Jap so, asshole!)
Mr.E : Someone wrote "Japs" in a newspaper of Ameica. Soon the Government of Japan protested to him "What is Japs?!". Are you remenber? Or are you forget?
Mrs.F : They said Jap to me with racial action. (And show to me sign of "Fuck You!"
Mr.F : And they said "Japs go home!".
Mr.G : You are deceived by your FRIENDS.
At last Mr.X said "Did you excuse for them?! You are a betrayer!"
They are real blockhead...block on their head, I thought.
And my English-Japanese dictionary use [Jap.] as short of Japan and Japanese. ("KENKYUSHA'S ENGLISH-JAPANESE DICTIONARY FOR THE GENERAL READER" By Mr.Tokuichiro Matsuda. Published 1984)
But it is one of truth in Japan.
Once again. Now I don't think Jap is not racial word.
And thank you fossil and zxz555.
