Psychological colonization in schools:

An English teacher living in Japan highlighted how Japanese schools have a very different approach to education compared to American high schools.

American TikTok creator Hito Bito (@hito.bito) provides a glimpse of the rules that Japanese school kids must follow in a video posted on Jan. 24 titled “Things about my school in Japan that could send Americans into a coma.”

According to the TikToker, it is mandatory in Japanese schools to change from outdoor to indoor shoes as soon as students enter the school.
She also shares that schools prioritize cleanliness and responsibility because “kids clean the school from top to bottom every single day.”

Japanese students are also responsible for serving themselves lunch and cleaning their trays, emphasizing self-sufficiency and independence.

She also points out that there is a lack of heating or cooling in the hallways, which is why she is forced to “walk around in a coat.”
Piercings and makeup are also prohibited, although Hito Bito admits that she does not follow these rules.

And has not been fired. This is the POS:

In short, it's OK to be "white" in Japan.

It doesn't matter how good your rules are; if "whites" are not required to follow them while everyone else is, you are colonized, period.
