Rabbits/ apartheid and Japan

Rabbits in the Rijks_web.jpg

I went to Rijksakademie to fetch my donated artwork to Artists Endowments.
I saw the rabbits still there! It's nice that they also can stay there.
(I received a good news from Rijksakademie that now they are official owner of the building. They don't need to move to the other place due to the budget cut.) 


Daishin checks Japanese news site everyday. His favorite Japanese journalist Tetsuo Jinbo gave interesting comment for the decease of Nelson Mandela.
He says, many people in Japan commented condolence of Nelson Mandela. They praise tremendously about Mandela's accomplish. but Jinbo would like to mention to Japanese people that Japan was only one country that traded with South Africa at the moment of South Africa still doing apartheid. The other country stopped their trading with South Africa to against apartheid. If Japanese people were aware of it and tried to against their government, the apartheid would ended much earlier, he thinks.
He is always wondering each individual Japanese people are so kind but why so dump as public. Most of the Japanese people even doesn't know that their country used to help apartheid.
A comparative sociologist Susumu Miyadai commented that Japanese people are badly generous to against their government.
