Does Jeff Wheelwright dislike hearing Japanese people speak English?

In The Gray Tsunami, speaking of Haruna Fukui (a Japanese graduate student working on her Ph.D. in sociology at Arizona State University), Wheelwright says
Fukui speaks near-perfect American English, even incorporating a questioning inflection at the end of her sentences.
Oooh, a Japanese who can actually speak English! As if her English fluency has anything to do with his article.
