    so what is the statute of limitations on this kind of thing?

    The Japanese were bad, but they got a couple of nukes for thier sins, so move on Korea.

    When will graphic designers be free from the shackels of history?

    Given the history, probably about the same time Swastikas go back to being a peace symbol?

    Do you not, as an Irishman, not bridle, on a deep seated level, to the Union flag?

    Stalin was just as brutal and barbarik as Hitler and Tojo, yet a gi with hammer and sycle motif would raise few eyebrows

    I don't know about you guys, but I find this really offensive. Really destroyed my respect for GSP.
    You forgot to mention the reason why I should give a rats ass.

    On a side note, if you wear a gi like that you'd damn well be some kind of badass to justify it. Otherwise, you'll look like a complete tool.

    No doubt. This is kind of like the difference between being a "wealthy eccentric" and a homeless crazy person; being someone notable gives you a lot more leeway to get away with things ordinary people can't.
