According to the IMADR's Nozomi Bando, a common assumption that all Japanese citizens are the same race allows the government to say that racial discrimination can't exist in Japan--thus there is no need for legislation.
The IMADR itself was set up by a burakumin rights organization dating back to 1922.
The IMADR also points to discrimination suffered by Japan's one million zainichi Korean and Chinese permanent residents.
