I'm not telling you that you can't call them "Japs" but I am telling you that is considered hate speech.
Two wrongs don't make a right.
And perpetuating hate never solves anything.

Good statement and perfectly right.

There is a vast difference of perception between Chinese citizens and the generation who left China ages ago.

Present day Japan is a very attractive destination for many Chinese which is reflected in the ever increasing number of Chinese who study here or who marry a Japanese partner. I'm not sure whether you know Tokyo well enough but if you walk in Shinjuku district it is almost as common to see and hear Chinese as it is to see and hear Japanese and the trend is increasing. Chinese -in meantime- have overtaken Koreans as the largest foreign resident group in this country.

There is a lot of love for Japanese culture among today's Chinese youth. (Food, anime, music, fashion)
But underneath all of that there is (amongst some) to be found a simmering hatred.

And there are those who would like nothing more to right what they see as unfinished business.
This I believe is taught to them by older generations who have no love for contemporary Japanese culture.

My hope is that between these two opposing forces, a middle ground will emerge.
The peace and well-being of future generations is dependent upon that outcome.

Is this a Chinese affair??   Ask your own government(s) to settle the claim.

Yes, it's true. I know that wounds heal harder in Asia than Europe but in the end I see the outcome similar to what Germany and France or Germany and Poland or for that matter even Germany and Russia have achieved. It needs not only the will of the people but even more commitment and firm determination of both governments involved.
