I think it's important to point out there is a big difference between being against a practice and being against a culture or people. I don't buy made in China as much as possible because I'm against sweatshop labor, not because I'm racist against the Chinese. The truth is Japanese people take great pride in their craftsmanship which is why I run most all Shindaiwa equipment. I also use American made products as much as I can, but sadly a lot of American made products are either made overseas and assembled in the USA or just poorly made due to our heavily post industrial economy.
As society grows increasingly metropolitan in nature and accounting for all of the horrible racism that African Americans, Asians, and Latinos have faced in the past I think that it is important to clarify whether you are for American industry or against a particular practice.
