    Hahahahaha ... answer: human!

    Two of my childhood friends were "Japanese" (actually, "half", they are brothers and their father is Chinese Shanghai, a buddy of my father), and I have also met a few during Uni, one Japanese guy after Uni (he studied in LA and showed not a hint of Japanese, his father is a business associate of my aunt), and a few more while living in Sydney, including one very sexy Japanese girl ...

    ... most of them are mildly mannered, very friendly, and shown no obvious aggression to dominate the world (though I think that Japanese girl might have wanted to have breakfast with me, or have me for breakfast) ...

    "there are news about the violent Japanese against my people constantly, and other negative news."

    Are you referring to recent Japanese-on-Chinese violence, or something that happened, oh, seventy-odd years ago? Nanjing isn't "news" anymore, fyi.

    Hahahahahaha ... needless to say, I will have to drag a few "famous" countries into the discussion ... but I only have the rough details ... so, dont crucify me ... heehee ...

    Centuries (or a few dynasties) ago, Chinese had attacked as far as Middle East and even Europe (I barely passed Chinese History)...

    Whichever European country (or countries?) "conquered" what is now known as United States and forced the Indians away from their home

    The British once did that too when they landed in Australia

    ... basically, Tomoko, to remember the sadness and madness from decades ago, or even centuries ago, is very tiring and time-consuming ... we could perhaps point out that the Japanese government should tell their youths the truths of WW2 in their textbooks, but then so should Chinese youths learn much about the truths that they might not have been taught ...

    It is OK to be confused, but as Michael said, history is history ... let it stay in the past ...
