DIVERSITY IN JAPAN: BURAKU

It is getting less but there are people who are still called BURAKU. BURAKU people are discriminated as low status. their ancesters in Edo era were the people who treated as livestocks which were called "Eta" "Hinin". They couldn't get normal jobs as others. And nowadays, those who inherited the blood are still discriminated, especially women. Some old-fashioned people think that BURAKU women are low level so they don't want to let them marry with those women. It is getting less but those discrimination still exists.
