Japan's Current Human Rights Violations Against Chinese and Koreans

At least that is what the schools are calling it. So what is the deal?

Operators of Chinese and Korean schools in Tokyo and Kanagawa prefectures on Monday called for preferential tax treatment for donations to their schools, claiming that only providing such treatment to European and American international schools in Japan is discriminatory.
So, Europeans and Amerricans all get tax breaks but screw those Koreans and Chinese! Nice guys.

According to the petition, Korean and Chinese schools are unable to receive tax breaks for donations to the schools for such purposes as renovating or building school facilities, although such tax breaks are given to European and American schools in Japan.

The petition says such discriminatory treatment is a human rights violation.
This seems pretty black and white. Fix the damn system.
