Order of the Rising Sun Ramseyer Controversy
Comfort Women history is not Ramseyer's only truth he revises. In 2019 Ramseyer wrote about the Kanto Earthquake in Japan in 1923. Korea Herald Feb. 2021 article says Ramseyer denied Korean massacre
History confronts Ramseyer while Harvard supports his unacceptable scholarship.
“Japanese people even pay respect to deceased dogs with gravestones, and they wouldn’t have exposed the bottom portions of their own people,” Jeong said. “It’s such an atrocious act of brutality that they chose only the female bodies to strip bare.”
When we deny our stories, they define us. When we own our stories, we get to write a brave new ending. Brene Brown.
"Yes, we need to own a million heartbreaking stories of discrimination and prejudice, and make millions of changes, and hold space for a million tough conversations. But, if each one of us owns one story and makes one change and has one honest conversation where we listen more than defend or offer false comfort – we can do this. There is a way to write a brave new ending to one of the most painful stories in our history. What remains to be seen is if we have the will and courage."
Does Harvard Have a Pro-Japanese Tradition?
Harvard Alumnus Theodore Roosevelt gave Korea to Japan in trade for American imperialism in the Philippines in 1905.
One of the questions raised by the actions of Order of the Rising Sun Mitsubishi Law of Japan Professor Ramseyer - is Harvard pro-Japanese in its open support of his lying about Korean history and Comfort Women? There certainly are many strong bonds between Japan and Harvard. One thing is clear Korean history needs its independence at Harvard University. How Ramseyer is being treated by Harvard leadership after calling all Comfort Women issues "factually false" seems pro-Japanese. Ramseyer has a habit of lying and revising history. His Kanto Massacre propaganda in 2019 is disgusting. The Kanto Earthquake was in 1923. He habitually prostitutes himself as a history expert when he is just a poser. Unfortunately his Harvard pedestal easily makes people accept his lies as truth.
Books like The Foreign Destruction of Korean Independence by Carole Caneron Shaw open up the influence of many Americans on Korea's inhumane occupation by Japan.
Harvard President Drew Faust did nothing to address the Comfort Women issue connected to Japan's Abe visit to the Kennedy Forum in 2015. People protested Abe like the protests caused by Ramseyer's calling Comfort Women "pure fiction." Did she ignore Lee Yong Su who was on campus? Was it too risky to acknowledge Comfort Women while Jorge Dominguez abuse of women case was troubling Harvard?
