No one in these cities is calling Asians "foreigners" to their face at their place of employment by other colleagues; asking them how much they make and telling them they should not make more than X amount because they're "gaijin." Nor are they walking down the street and being spit on in the face and told to "Go home! I've seen too much, been to too many places, and experienced too many types of people.
