怖いぐらい右傾化が進みます。政治家とマスコミが原因だと思うけど無関心と無知の大衆にも多大な責任もある。都合の良い無知は差別の道具に使われている。
昨夜、ある経営者の会で 隣の人が言うには朝鮮学校の教科書では「日本が侵略した」と教えるなら反日教育だと主張。もちろん私は反論した→「侵略は事実なのにどうしてそれは 反日教育になりますか。世界中の教科書では日本の「侵略行為」について教えています」と教えて上げた・・・ 相手は無知のため、すぐ黙った。歴史を知らない、事実に耳を塞ぎたい、それでも差別をしたい恐ろしさを感じた。その後、話はありませんでした・・・

At a business meeting in Yokohama, the fascist sitting next to me told me that Korean schools in Japan are anti-Japanese because they teach that Japan “invaded” Korea. Having my PhD candidate status on my business card helps…….I retorted that the invasion of Korea and China is a FACT, it does not constitute being anti-Japanese. He backed off quickly; he probably knew that his ignorance might embarrass him.
But it goes to show that institutionalized discrimination is nurtured by chosen ignorance.
I’m not backing down for anyone……..
