09: YOUR FAVORITE LINE/S BY A THIRD WHEEL MALE CHARACTER
Why did something like this happen? That’s partly because, since childhood, the defendant has suffered discrimination and prejudice. If I say that, all of you might think that is a weak argument in this day and age. Right now, in this era, in this Japan’s society, is there something like discrimination and prejudice? Is there anyone here who thinks that way? Well then, let’s think back. Before, when the witness Mishima Hana was testifying on the stand, the prosecutor announced that she is the daughter of Kashiwabara Seiten and claimed that she could not mean well.
At that moment, the atmosphere in this courtroom changed completely. If she were the daughter of a criminal, then there must be no mistake that she was a bad person, too. Her testimony cannot be trusted. You immediately put that label on a girl who eagerly lived her life everyday with a smile. That is prejudice. That is discrimination! Just like what the prosecutor’s words have shown us, this kind of prejudice and discrimination, even now, is present in everyday situations that are close to us.
Ever since the defendant was small, he went through discrimination and prejudice, simply for his slightly different skin color. Although he was born in Japan and lived a life that was no different from any other Japanese. While walking in the streets, he is asked for his foreign worker permit. If something had happened nearby, he would have been immediately suspected as a criminal.
