Hello! If my question looks like affront, sorry please me, I didn't want to hurt you, but I'm interested about Japan (and I don't know much English):
I've heard, that many Japaneses're racists, and they hate (and deceive) foreigners in Japan. Is it true?

I can’t make generalizations, so it is my personal thinking.
Personally, I don’t hate foreigners because they are foreigners. And I don’t like the thought that some races are superior to other races. (So I feel so sad if they call us racists.) But, to be honest, I know I can only speak my native language well, so I don’t like using foreign languages (studying foreign languages) although I don’t think I would not like to use Engrish; the foreign language I can use a bit.
No, I didn't mean that Japaneses are racists because they don't know English, speak only Japanese and can't answer foreigners. I spoke:
Dmitry Shamov (Дмитрий Шамов, he is Russian YouTuber who lives in Japan since 2012 and speaks about this country) spoke that Japaneses "hate" him sometimes, but he knows Japanese (video on Russian language). For example, he couldn't find a job (because he isn't Asian appearance); at first he was a barmen, and if Japaneses saw that he isn't Japanese, they didn't go to a bar or didn't trust him. Also: Japaneses refused to service him in hospital/hotel, taxi driver wanted to steal 5 000 yen, seller of store pretended that he don't understand Dmitry and etc. (here Dmitry's wife is speaking about it, she's from Japan)
Sergey Kuvaev (Сергей Куваев, he is also Russian YouTuber who lives in Japanese since 2009 and speak about this country) spoke that much Japaneses think all foreigners are stupid. He spoke (my text: spoke spoke spoke and limited vocabulary of English :D) negative about videos like WHY JAPANESE PEOPLE which foreigner was stupid (here on Russian)
Russian Nihonjin (he is also also Russian YouTuber who studies at school, he was born in Japan, but his parents are from Russia and Japan) spoke that other students mock him because he is "half-breed" (here on Russian)
I read many articles that… Japaneses hate foreigners, Japaneses hate Chineses, Japaneses hate Koreans, Japaneses hate all world, Japaneses hate Japaneses (whut). And I thought: is it true or isn't? but thank you for the answer!
Sorry for my poor English, I didn’t want to mean “because the Japanese can't answer foreigners, foreigners say lots of Japanese are racists”. I’ve known even though some of “Japanese only” is poor Engrish and it means “we can only speak Japanese”, lots of “Japanese only” means “the service is only for Japanese, and it is not for foreigners (and Japanese who have heritage in other countries)”.
There are racists in Japan, same as in other countries. The Japanese should more tolerant, same as in other countries.
I think we should not so, but some of Japanese who hate foreigners say “we got lots of troubles with foreigners, so we don’t want to be foreigners anymore. It’s so sad news... We should tell foreigners about rules and manners in Japan instead of the word “Japanese only”.
> Is it true or isn’t?
It is what as you think, for you.
