I agree one hundred percent.

Talking about native speakerism, I have started my own campaign to protest against the “native speakers only” ads.

I have sent two letters to a Japanese congress-man and a Japanese political party with a content that it is discriminatory to exclude non-native speakers based only on the fact they are non native speakers and neither of them have responded.

Anyone has any suggestions as to my next move?

Dear Marek,
Please remember that no matter what one may call this, label it, or refer to it as, “Native Speakerism” is and remains an “ism”. And, all “Isms” are usually negative. When talking about this issue one should never forget that we are dealing with marginalization – and marginalization is a form of prejudice. Why do we always keep refering to the victims? Shouldn’t we be discussing the system(s) and the people who knowingly promote marginalization?
Thanks – Ron Morrain
