An anti-Japanese hate speech against Japanese history education on a comment thread of Japan Times FB page in 2015

This is a log of the comment thread. I never forgive you about your racial insult that we, Japanese people are not taught WW II history in Japanese education system, Gianni Dibiase and Shawn DuBois! I never permit you to delete your undesired history by doing the comment thread! I captured all and I have text, too. It’s my negative sanction to your false accusation on us of Japanese history education.

Gianni Dibiase I feel Japanese people need to be more educated about history in general and about what’s going on outside Japan nowadays. The bubble they live in makes them look ignorant and detached from the rest of humanity.

Shawn DuBois Really, you want me to remember the publishing company of a Japanese text book I read 20 years ago? Is that really the best you can do? Have you ever read a Japanese high school history book? How much was written about Japan’s role in the war? do you remember? Have you ever taken the time to speak with Japanese World War 2 vets and listened to their stories?

Till now, I haven’t found provable “perjury” in you yet. But looks that you cannot check history textbooks well.

There were one inspected primary school history textbook with this picture and one inspected middle school textbook with this. The picture was deleted because of unreliability. Don’t you know that?

Which publisher is very critical information to inspect what you see. It’s unrefutably a correct cross-examination.

In Japan, the government of Japan buy the inspected textbooks to each pupils. So her textbooks were up-to-date under the inspection system. I’ve already found that the inspected history textbooks mention Nanjing Massacre and so on. But seeing your behavior now, you wouldn’t check them.

>really why don’t you take a picture of some and post them so we can see them?

I did although the copy rights problem keeps me from continuing it. Shall I show Tokyo Shoseki’s history textbook for grade 6 part 1, for example? I can check all those inspected textbooks in a university library. So can you in Shizuoka University. But looks that you are too lazy to check them.

From talking with a few survivors whom I happened to meet, there were many great atrocities besides Nanjing in China, for example in China experiments in horrible germ warfare by dropping candy infected with diseases and also, cruel treatment of occupied country’s nationals.

Mélissa Katanda most people are ignorant about what’s going on in the world, it’s not just a Japanese problem. Most Americans can’t even tell you how many countries there are in African, they don’t even know that it’s a continent and they think there’s a language called African or Nigerian lol, some Europeans are a little bit better educated but they only stretch so far, when I lived in Canada, my cousins in Congo asked I didn’t visit my family in Vancouver enough since we were in the same country now, I had to explain to them that New Brunswick was not next door. I’ve lived in enough country to know that most education system stay very narrow minded, as long as people aren’t taught to be racist, the ignorance can be dealt with…

>Shawn DuBois Please explain what it is you mean by hate speech? you are Japanese?

Is he try to deceive the readers as if he succeeds to refute me? I showed the capture of Tokyo Shoseki’s inspected history textbooks, used for 6th grade via message. The textbook was inspected in 2010 and not used from school year 2015, though.

He ignored the sources on the links to my blog entries. This link is a personal page of someone. But the picture is shown on Osaka Shoseki’s grade 6 social study textbook teaching history. And Nippon Bunkyou Shuppan put to their middle school history textbook in the past. It was a big scandal around 1999.(So it wasn’t just a net information to me since I’ve seen the argument about it on some published books and magazines.) He ignores that fact or pretend not to know.

If we believed the accusation of us about WW II, it’s clear that Shawn DuBois, Hiroshi Nakamura, and so on on this post hold a false accusation on Japan about history education.

Machio Machida Many people think the way of Japanese teaching a history education in Japan is wrong. Of course, there is not perfect so I try to ask what is wrong with it. But the most of them just believe what media said that’s why they cannot refer to details. The funniest things is many Japanese believed that too like 中村 宏. I don’t know why they love to made up fascinating BS about Japan. I wish them to stop BSing and Just say “I’m hate Japanese!” It is much more easy to understand. I don’t need to refer that is good advice or jsut another boring “Mr. Westerners’ refinement tought to savage.”

1978 + 6 = 1984. But I should calculate 1978 + 7. So 1985.

>It was a big scandal around 1999

Correctly, around 1997. I showed that picture on Prof. Nobukatsu Fujioka’s book in an English class in 1997. Yeah, I couldn’t show the exact year from my memory correctly.
