Dear African-Americans

Hi, everyone!

I just wrote a poem freely.

Can I ask you what you think about it?

Please note, however, I can read it only using Google Translate.

The poem is a translation. It has been translated at my request.

"Poem: Dear African-Americans"

A new age of internet has arrived.

Looking at the present of America,

I learned the actual nature of discrimination against African-Americans which still continues.

 

I am a Japanese person, and

I have never been to foreign country, to say nothing of America.

So I may not know the precise details, but

I would like to tell African-Americans

how Japanese people deal with prejudice.

 

When I look at some white people who discriminate against people because of their race, I cannot help being pleased.

The reason why is that they are not doing anything at that time.

I study hard then.

Japanese people have continued doing such a thing for more than one hundred years.

We are continuing it unconsciously.

 

We never protest.

If things should be improved by protest,

discrimination would have been eliminated long ago.

 

Dear African-Americans,

Let's study hard.

Let's train hard.

 

Maybe we will not meet each other in our lives, but

let's live in a positive manner so that

we will praise each other for doing splendidly when we meet in afterlife.
