Burakumin at Fukushima

"Rumor has it that many of the cleanup workers are burakumin (a minority group dating from Japan's feudal era and still often associated with discrimination)," reports Paul Jobin — Dying for TEPCO.

Mr. Jobin makes mention of the "[j]ob offers [that] come not from TEPCO but from Mizukami Kogyo, a company whose business is construction and cleaning maintenance," whose "description indicates only that the work is at a nuclear plant in Fukushima prefecture" and are "specified as three hours per day at an hourly wage of 10,000 yen (about US$122)" with "no information about danger, only the suggestion to ask the employer for further details on food, lodging, transportation and insurance." These same jobs have been advertised in Korea.

the situation of Burakumin are different between east and west Japan.
east Japanese people don not know them and who they were because they were not taught in school like this
in west Japan, they teach it for opposition of discrimination.
so, east Japanese they dont care about it because they dont know.
to know something about evil thing makes
new discrimination.
Not knowing can live happily.
They do not work by using arms called human rights and discrimination.
they insist " we are discriminated"
so are many Zinichi korean.

why do they pretend the right winger?
Disclose the ugliness of the right wing as their one of the purposes. It is included to show bad Japan.

about comfrot women at that time

there are many Japanese movies that described comfort women just after ww2.
there was not such comfort women's issue at that time
so Japanese movie expressed them near truth..

These movies draw them without a hesitation because there was no such problem of comfrot women at that time.
And it was not necessary to change a fact in arbitrariness.
These would be their general figures

1959 dokuritsu gurentai (DESPERATE OUTPOST)
a Korean comfort woman is ...
Dokuritsu-gurentai is a film directed by Kihachi Okamoto. In this film you can see several Japanese and Korean comfort women.

Okamoto is also famous for his anti-war satire film The Human Bullet (Nikudan).

a comfort woman was a girlfriend of the war correspondent.
A confortwoman who said "I want to run the coffee shop in Tokyo after war" is a Korean.
As for the Korean prostitute, all is money
The misery that seems to have been forced is not drawn at all in this movie

according to korean newspaper article
Korea the Country of Liars..
In every country there are crimes that uniquely reflect its society. National Intelligence Service director-designate Kim Seung-kyu, in a lecture he gave late in May when he was justice minister, said: "The three representative crimes of our country are perjury, libel and fraud." In simple comparison, not taking into account population ratio, South Korea saw 16 times as many perjury cases in 2003 than Japan, 39 times as many libel cases and 26 times as many instances of fraud. That is extraordinarily high given Japan's population is three times our own.
The common denominator of the three crimes is lying; in short, we live in a country of liars. The prosecution devotes 70 percent of its work to handling the three crimes, the former justice minister said. And because suspects lie so much, the indictment rate in fraud cases is 19.5 percent, in perjury 29 percent and in libel 43.1 percent. "Internationally, too, there is a perception that South Korea's representative crime is fraud," Kim said, adding that recent major scandals show how rampant lying is in this country.

The prosecution is not free from responsibility, since there is a sense in which its ingrained attitude in dealing with suspects for libel, fraud and perjury has contributed to making the crimes the scourge they have become.

Lying is so common in our society because few recognize that it leads to crime. "What's wrong with telling a little lie?" they think. And here the big problem is that men of power, rather than ordinary citizens, indulge in lying on a massive scale, to the point where it is regarded as a necessary means of survival in some circles.

A recent example that hurt us all is the lies of Kim Dae-yeop, finally punished by a court for fabricating a charge against the opposition presidential candidate in the 2002 elections. That lie determined the fate of a government. When the opposition party demanded an apology, he laughed in their face by sending apples -- phonetically, both apples and apology are “sagwa.”
