I'd like to revisit this old thread for a SRM context.

I don't think anything new has been published since that discussion, and it remains unanswered.  But it has much more impending relevance than it did back in 2013.

So what of the non-ethnic Japanese minorities in the Japanese Imperial State?  I'd imagine that if they went by way of the aboriginal peoples of North America and Siberia we'd have evidence of their new states, so a lack of information there is probably a safe assumption that nothing of the sort happened. 

OTOH while we don't have evidence of any genocidal purging of non Japanese in Japan, we do have the example of the purging of Metahumans.  So it honestly seems a very up in the air kind of question about how nonmetahuman, non ethnic Japanese Japanese citizens were treated. 

What would have happened to them in light of the Yamato Act prior to Yasuhito?  Is it best to assume for PC background purposes that any Ainu or Ryuku characters suffered similarly to metahumans, even if not confined to Yomi Island or subjected to deportation to San Francisco?
