Yes, Demise of Rosa Parks was Reported as They Wished

Yes, Demise of Rosa Parks was Reported as They Wished

For some, it might be interesting to see if the death of Rosa Louise McCauley Parks was informed in Japan. Yes, the news has been informed through media above reproach. As you should know, historically Japan has never brought Africans by force to her territory so as to exploit them as slaves, and thus the news is very remote to the people.

However, it is said that Japanese immigrant workers to the U.S. or the first generation of Japanese Americans a century or more ago were forced to work at a level lower than that occupied by African Americans. They were also put under Chinese emigrants.

But, most importantly, African Americans were very unlucky because they had been deprived of their cultural traditions from the beginning; Chinese immigrants had no well-established mother nation behind them until 1980’s when Deng Xiaoping got control of the Communist Party; but Japan was and has been always there well established and educating the people so as to equip them with higher cultural capability.

Nonetheless, Japanese immigrant workers to the U.S. had been neither taken care of nor expected to be something in America by their mother country, that is, Imperial Japan.

It must be very difficult for African Americans to succeed in America. It should be also difficult for Chinese Americans to achieve something more than establishing their individual positions depending on their talent. However, in this context, Japanese Americans should have, under an ordinary scenario supported by their mother Empire, had a better chance to gain a foothold in America. But Imperial Japan had never had such a scheme as would allow for that kind of scenarios.

Rosa Parks, at her historic moment, could neither be a Japanese American with potential assets nor a Chinese American with worldly wisdom. But she must be truly one of African American Ladies who could wholly resort to the God.

A 9/11 Consideration: Whose Hand’s Writing on the Big Wall in 1945 and 2001 ?

A 9/11 Consideration: Whose Hand’s Writing on the Big Wall in 1945 and 2001 ?

As everyone should know, on July 28, 1945, a B-25 bomber plane hit the 79th floor of the Empire State Building. It killed 14 people in the then tallest skyscraper in New York or the world.

While being informed so, however, nobody thought that it might be a hand-writing on the wall. That is, a hand writing which is telling American people beforehand that something horrible might happen soon somewhere from the sky using American military planes. It was then only Imperial Japan that was continuing war with the U.S. So, now we could interpret it as a sign of coming atomic bomb attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki by B29 bombers, which actually happened in August 1945.

Most of learned people, on the last turn of the century, selected the atomic bomb attacks on the Empire of Great Japan by the U.S. military as the most important news or events in the 20th century.

Now, we may wonder whether it was, too, a hand-writing on the wall that the World Trade Center (WTC) towers crumbled after being hit by jet planes, each of which terrorists took control on.

In the summer of 1945, American people were given a very slim chance or too short notice to stop the atrocity on Hiroshima and Nagasaki if they had wished, as the hand-writing was given just days before the attacks.

Now, four years have passed since the destruction of WTC in 2001. We have been given a plenty of time to consider what the new hand-writing on the wall, if allowed to call so, stands for.

Will it be something most of learned people, on the next turn of the century, select as the most important news or events in the 21th century?

What I mean is that I don’t think the collapse of WTC is to be the most important news or events for the 21th century, as with a case of the collision of a B25 bomber with the Empire State Building in July 1945 for the 20th century.

Nonetheless, If, contrary to the nightmare, the kingdom of God should come before the 22nd century, we might be allowed to say that it has turned out to be another kind of omens despite so many (heroic) sacrifices. But, of course, such a kingdom is not tangible.
