Regarding the Feb. 23 article “Mag on foreigner crime not racist: editor“: I would like to comment on editor Shigeki Saka’s remark that publisher Eichi’s special magazine edition “Shocking foreigner crime: the underground file” does contain “a little bit of extreme expressions for commercial purposes.” I would like to redefine his statement simply as propaganda.

For a country that sends aid to Indonesia, assistance to Iraq and volunteer services around the world, this magazine does not fully encompass the heart of the Japanese people.
