Amy Yamada, a well-known Japanese novelist, has written several books on the destructive nature of black on Japanese relationships. She has been gaining a huge following in Japan over the years, by mostly young and some old readers. She explores the darker side of the black man; that beast within him which drives her passion and her obsession.
In order to satisfy her masochistic desires she opted for a black man because he is the most difficult to tame, not like his white counter-part whose only aim is to please his Japanese goddess whether it be through money or other gratuities; henpecked in other words. The black men she targets in America only wish to use and abuse her, and yet she still derives a sense of satisfaction from trying to beat them at their own game, and often times losing.
Clean and educated Black men are seen as weak and inferior to their ghetto counter-parts, which is a major discredit for those black men seeking a legitimate relationship with a Japanese woman, which should be based off of respect, and not ignorant stereotypes. Hip Hop and the attitudes associated with this genre of music do not define the legacy of the Black people of America.
For me, the chalice of Japanese 'culture and civilization' is the Japanese womb; from which, the wisdom of the ancients flow. The Japanese man is inferior to his own better half because intellectually he is inept and void of soul and meaning. Every sake ever made is a reflection of this chalice or womb of fermentation of the Japanese bijin(beauty). It is like drinking the very soul of the Nation as demonstrated in ceremonies across the country and in ritual lore.
The Madame Butterfly Mystique with her broken wings that charmed so many G.I's during their heydays of the occupation was the corner stone of Japanese beauty and wonderment for centuries. The green tea ceremonies with their meticulous attention to detail , the natural beauty of the four seasons, the docile and well-mannered Japanese women of old all fascinated so many Westerners. These images were seared into the minds of many Westerners since the MacArthur era.
Some Japanese women may think the old way was denigrating and obsolete. It’s these old virtues that do not reflect the opinions of the modern Japanese woman of today. They’ve been trying for decades to reshape their image and reinventing themselves into more than just an ordinary Japanese woman, but a woman of the world. An international woman, a cosmopolitan, who can be respected for her own unique individuality, and not necessarily for her ancestral virtues.
If I expect a Japanese woman to show a little virtue then it’s considered an insult or demeaning, but for novelist like Amy Yamada, to highlight the “nigger” mentality and wanton sex of black men is equally appalling. Being a nigger is not a virtue, it’s a crime in all 50 States in North America, just take a walk down death row! Just being ‘Black’ in America is a virtue all in itself.
Amy Yamada has been around for a very long time now, and has enjoyed immense popularity since the 90s. No one questions her accounts, which leads me to believe that her writings have served to further label black men as sexual predators and irresponsible and reckless. Thank goodness her actions do not represent the majority of Japanese women.
