Re: [ARSCLIST] The Incompetence at ENHS

Exactly my point. Of course they want it out. Then in that case does the US government want it out also?
The recordings from 1888-1929 are probably the most revealing information about the development of racial attitudes in the United States.

If everyone had simple access to them, they would have a better understanding of the situation.

There's a very strong undercurrent of moral relativism in
current Japanese discourse on WWII -- ie, "Sure, we had the
Bataan Death March, but the US had internment camps."  So,
yeah, if it played into this interpretation of history I
can see them wanting to release materials that made the
US look racist.
