The Sino-Japanese War and the Russo-Japanese War pushed Japan to the center of the international community
Is it at first the Sino-Japanese War that Japan appears in world history? The world paid attention to the feats of the island nations of the Orient, and the West, who considered China a great power, came to call China a "sleeping lion."
Next is the Russo-Japanese War. Heihachiro Togo, who won the Battle of Tsushima, was published on the front page of each country's newspaper, and is said to be the first person to be listed as the top Japanese in the world newspapers. After that, Japan jumped to the forefront of the world and became a permanent member of the League of Nations in 1919.
Japan is the first in the world to appeal for the elimination of racial discrimination
1919 Japan proposes the world's first bill to eliminate racial discrimination at the United Nations. Already at this time, Japan challenged the Western way of controlling Asia. Former Foreign Minister Makino Nobuaki criticized Western countries for racial discrimination in colonial basements across Asia.

The world's first international organization to eliminate racial discrimination is in favor of France and Italy, two each, Greece, the Republic of China, Portugal, Czechoslovakia, Serve, Croart, Slovene and Japan, and the opposite is the United Kingdom.・ There were 5 people in the US, Poland, Brazil, and Romania, so I agree with them.
Many Japanese think that the elimination of racial discrimination is a concept developed from Europe and the United States, but in fact, Japan was the first to appeal for the elimination of racial discrimination.
Britain and the United States have made huge fortunes in the slave trade
At that time Britain abducted blacks from Africa and traded slaves to the Americas. The United States used black slaves to grow agricultural products cheaply and export them to countries around the world. The American representative argued that this was a rejection because it was not unanimous.
Is there a unanimous principle of 16 people?
Makino once argued that there was a majority vote, but the unanimous principle of the United States, which was already a major power at that time, passed. It was nine years after the annexation of Japan and Korea and 22 years before the war began.
South Korea denounces Japan as an oriental Nazi
South Korea continues to say that it was discriminated against and robbed by Japan, butJapan was fighting at an international organization on a completely different scale.
The annexation of Japan and Korea and the annexation of Taiwan are completely different assimilation policies from Western colonies. The assimilation policy is that the Japanese, Koreans, and Taiwanese who live there have equal rights and are subject to the rule of law.
The Greater East Asia War is a war in which Japan fought against the white nations that ruled the Asian colonies under the idea that Asian countries would maintain their independence and prosper together. The Greater East Asia Co-prosperity Area concept is not something that was born suddenly as you might think.
Korea claims to have suffered racial discrimination during the Japanese annexation of Korea, but it seems that they do not know what racial discrimination means at that time.
