Japan is so politically incorrect in some ways that it is amusing. These quotes from Japanese politicians come from the London Times via Cronaca:

‘Japan is becoming a considerably intelligent society, far more so than the US. A large number of blacks, Mexicans and Puerto Ricans live in the US. On average the level is still extremely low’
Yasuhiro Nakasone, former Prime Minister

‘The most harmful thing that civilisation has brought about is baba (old hags). It is sinful for a woman to continue to live after she loses her reproductive capacity’
Shintaro Ishihara, Governor of Tokyo

‘The voters could not have vanished faster if I’d been an Aids patient’
Yoshiro Mori, former Prime Minister, after a poorly attended rally
