Column of the Day: Potential risk of racial discrimination against Japanese
Today one of my friends kindly called my parents.
They were surprised to death. When I woke up, I found they had called me 9 times in the morning.
My friend called to tell them, “Be proud of your son”. (embarrassing. lol)
My parents did not understand anything in English, but asked me to send her response.
I’m to translate it into English and pass it to her.
They said they appreciate her phone call, they can’t evacuate for financial, and social reasons etc..
I pretty much know that I’m going to face the freezing cold reality out of Japan but when I went out today, my eyes started hurting, nose got runny and I’m still coughing. I can’t understand why other people don’t think it’s strange. My neighbor is coughing for weeks already.
Thinking about those physical problems, I think I shall move out soon as possible.
I’m also aware of the potential risk of racial discrimination against Japanese.
Looking over the comments on the blog and other sites, an idea is provoked.
“It’s because Japanese is coward.”
Whether it’s true or not, the more contamination spreads, the harder it becomes for Japanese refugee to live and make themselves understood right.
It’s going to be harder and harder. so I wish I could be a pioneer and prepare for the followers from Japan.
Japanese will have to live in a small community to help each other.
About this site
This website updates the latest news about the Fukushima nuclear plant and also archives the past news from 2011. Because it's always updated and added live, articles, categories and the tags are not necessarily fitted in the latest format.
I am the writer of this website. About page remains in 2014. This is because my memory about 311 was clearer than now, 2023, and I think it can have a historical value. Now I'm living in Romania with 3 cats as an independent data scientist.
Actually, nothing has progressed in the plant since 2011. We still don't even know what is going on inside. They must keep cooling the crippled reactors by water, but additionally groundwater keeps flowing into the reactor buildings from the broken parts. This is why highly contaminated water is always produced more than it can circulate. Tepco is planning to officially discharge this water to the Pacific but Tritium is still remaining in it. They dilute this with seawater so that it is legally safe, but scientifically the same amount of radioactive tritium is contained. They say it is safe to discharge, but none of them have drunk it.
