The Village Hidden in The Racism

As I may have mentioned somewhere, I am a big anime fan, and I have been for some time. One of the first anime that I got hooked on was Naruto, and it holds a special place in my heart. The show Naruto follows the story of an ostracized boy named Naruto on his journey to prestige, power, and social acceptance. Naruto and his peers are all ninjas and wear forehead protectors (headbands) that have symbols of their homelands on them as a form of identification. Naruto is from "The Village Hidden in the Leaves" (or alternatively, "The Hidden Leaf Village", Konoha) in the Land of Fire. (See the map below for details.)
