Criminalize racism in Japan

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Japan is in violation of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination in which Japan signed in 1995(https://treaties.un.org/Pages/ViewDetails.aspx?src=IND&mtdsg_no=IV-2&chapter=4&clang=_en).

Japan is also in violation of the Japan constitution article 14 which states “All of the people are equal under the law and there shall be no discrimination in political, economic or social relations because of race, creed, sex, social status or family origin.
Peers and peerage shall not be recognized.
No privilege shall accompany any award of honor, decoration or any distinction, nor shall any such award be valid beyond the lifetime of the individual who now holds or hereafter may receive it”(https://japan.kantei.go.jp/constitution_and_government_of_japan/constitution_e.html).

There have been and continue to be cases of blatant racism in Japan on a regular basis. Foreigners have been denied entry into businesses, denied apartment entry, and denied job interviews simply because of their race. Even when becoming a Japanese citizen, equal treatment is not given. If Japan wants a seat on the UN Security Council and host the Olympics, racism must be outlawed. Japan needs to be pressured to make this a reality because frankly, they seem to be even proud of this racism and will not change unless pressured into it. I ask President Trump, the Secretary of State, and the  ambassador to Japan to make it clear that they do not approve of the racism in Japan and the challenges it imposes on foreigners living in Japan.
