The Japanese government introduced a bill Friday to recognize the country’s indigenous Ainu minority for the first time as “reverse gaijin”.
“Reverse gaijin” have long suffered discrimination just like the more common guyjin and girljin.
“They will henceforth be known as ‘gyaku-gaijin’,” top government spokesman Yoshihide Suga told reporters.
Indigineous Ainu groups have welcomed this first step in being recognized by the Japanese government, but are not surprised by the apparent piss-take in the wording of the legislation and lack of substance in the new law.
“Ainu it,” said one reverse gaijin on Twitter.
