You thought Asians were not racist? Where did you get that idea?
Actually from tribal African times we have the tendency to accuse the other tribe of being monkeys. Africans do it to each other. Japanese were called Yellow Monkeys by Europeans. And when they are told that, they laugh. In the Philippines during the Phil-American war, Americans were called 'white monkeys'. They once called me a white cockroach here. But being called a monkey is not taken as seriously as it is in the PC-drenched US.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!

I was being facetious when saying that. I was referring to people here and in this country in general who refer to everyone as embracers of multiculturalism while only whites are accused of racism. Well, this is definitely a sign of racism on the part of the Japanese. I'm not complaining about it though. I think it's funny.

That's unfair to say that asian aren't racist. EVERBODY has their own racism factor.
