Hidden descrimination in Japan

Photographer Masaru Goto has an interesting series of portraits up at Global Compassion that show every day Burakumin, an ethnically Japanese group of people descended from the untouchables of the feudal Japanese caste system. Even today, the Burakumin face discrimination – they live in segregated districts that are often neglected by city governments, and the general public still negatively stereotypes them as poor and backwards.
