@Kazuaki Shimazaki.

Sono contradicts herself and she makes no sense to some of us.

lets digest her thoughts. She argues that Black neighborhoods in S/Africa are dirty and cruel.And from her analysis of the aparthied ,Blacks ,Whites and Asians should live sepreately.In other words,their culture is different.

My question is ,India has over 600million people without toilets and who defeacate in open spaces.I have been to India and some South East Asian countries and I can categorically say the level of filth there is nothing to write home about.

So my point is ,if you use the filth and situation in a country as a basis for race segregation.Are Indians and other people in South East Asia not Asians? Are their culture not different from Japanese as a whole?Again,the immigrants we are talking about are Asians.I have not heard of any Government policy on trying to bring Africans here.

In sum,she makes no sense unless she thought blacks were an easy pick to advance her agenda.

Kazuki Shimazaki From your point:

*This is written in such a way to suggest that had Africa not been colonized, they would have had a high literacy rate. That is a hard sell. They weren't colonized because they were strong well-educated people, you know. Frankly, their pre-colonial existences suggest that had they not been colonized, the literacy rate is likely to be lower.

*

First,let me inform you that there is a difference between education and schooling.Educaton is a life long process where values,knowledge and skills are instilled in the young by the elderly which entails several social agencies not only schooling.To think they were not educated because there were no formal schools is ignorance. What we refer to literacy now,at least in Africa then and now, is the abiity to read and write English which the colonialists pursued inorder for propagate Christianity.Many African countries had their ways of writing even b4 the colonial period.Maybe,if they had pursued it, literacy (at least,in the traditonal meaning of literacy) would be higher.

Yes,on South Africa,the end of aparthied has caused hardship,unfortunately for the whites.Which I think the Government there should address it.sometimes ,trying to correct years of disparities will cause problems.

But anyway, here's where we may have to disagree. If you accept that African black communities are filthy and cruel as a premise, and keeping clean is independent of wealth... >

This is where you are wrong again.I guess you have not been to south Africa.You will understand that,there is a high correlation between wealth and cleanliness.What causes this uncleanliness in their neigborhood?Years of neglect in basic social services like water,toilets etc.

Anyway,why use apartheid to buttress your ideas on immigration or better still segregation.Eventhough,as we all know,the current immigration been considered is geared towards Asians(Phillipinos,SE)?.OR from her analyses,these folks are not Asians?if they are,then this editorail she wrote is useless.

I will pardon you, as a Japanese,on your inability to comprehend the fundamental cause of ethnic wars in Africa.Why? Because most seemingly educated Japanese I have met do not seem to even know basic information on Asia not to talk about global issues.However,let me highlight a few points.

1.At independence, Colonial rule in Africa had left a huge illetracy rate.Why? Because only the select few and their dependents who sided with the colonists where allowed acces to eductaion .

2.The Colonists in Independence ,in most cases,left governence to ethnic groups who were close to them.These ethnic groups were mostly the minority in these countries.Thus,inorder to stregthen their control,they stiffled democracy and turned to dictators which obviously did not go well with the majority group.

These 2 main points are the causes of ethnic wars in Africa.You sem not to know Africa history.But ,take a time and read the trade and eductation that was in western and Northern part of present Africa before colonialisation. I am not saying,the present African situation is only as a result of colonialism.

On South Africa,do you think a genaration that has gone through this apartheid system and its consequent poverty would be able to live in clean environment with all the basic amenities in a go?

However to use a Hongkong as a model in support of colonialism is in itself wrong.Because,you seem not to know the history of Hongkong.It is this same thought ,you Japanese,have used to justify your activities in taiwan etc.

I bet the Americans should have colonized you .Then,you would have understood these issues.

thenewfront-Universities are usually to get a degree so they and their mama and pap's can show off about it. I disagree on this.uni shapes you,a platform for knowledge acquisition,research among others. unless you want to refer to some uni's in particular.though,it might not be the only way to success.
