The Novelist Amy Yamada

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.

  1. I take umbrage at your continued use of the word 'nigger'. Regardless of how you attempt to define the definition of the word, it is a racist remark. To assume it is 'OK' to use this sclerotic remark to define elements of African-Americans is ignorant. Your misanthropic lack of understanding is akin to your subject, Amy Yamada.

Shin-Okubo: Little Korea

So I finally got around to going up there to Shin-Okubo,  the land of Seoul via the Yamanote Line.  Been putting this trip off for years for personal reasons;  I am not a fan of Hanlleyu.      I knew why I came up this way, and for none other reason than the food, and maybe to bask in the nausea of Korean romanticist who steal Japanese Jukujo's souls.    But honestly, I like spicy food and stews and pickled vegetables that challenge my taste buds.    I also love the little funky cafes that line the main thoroughfares and alley ways, each with their own little eclectic menus and interior decor.     This place is Korea.  





Shin-Okuba represents more than just a place to relish in Korean culinary delights and K-pop culture, but a place where Koreans can express themselves through their culture.    You can feel the local vibe in the air as you're walking down narrow walkways and footpaths.    I have personally been to mainland Korea six times, so a lot of the nostalgia was there …

August: The Return of Souls

August is peak summer season in Japan.  We can look forward to some of the most spectacular fireworks displays and festivals in the world, especially  in places like Tohoku and Kanto regions.  August is also  the most contentious month of the year in Japan; with the end of the war and war-related guilt.    Then there's the great exodus back home for millions of Japanese.   Obon season is what it's called in Japan, and it's  where families return to their hometowns to remember their ancestors and to spend time with loved ones.  Gravestones are visited, cleaned, and washed; rice or alcohol is often placed on  miniature altars next to a  headstone.  This is a way for Japanese to reconnect with their roots; a way for them to stay grounded and founded in the ways of tradition and cultural protocol.   

For the foreign tourist, some places will be overcrowded and expensive to reach; for Japanese, this is normal and can't be helped.   Wherever you go there will be lines and h…

Japan Board of Education: Amazing Grace...?

Japan Board of Education Textbook.
Amazing Grace
Shuken Shuppan  Polestar textbook English Communication

Preface:  Japanese / Japan is  one of the leading donors in humanitarian aid around the world.   They have donated billions of yen to charities, developing countries, and startup business to just about every country on the globe.  Some Japanese have even taken matters to the extreme  to the point of poking their noses into hotspot areas like Palestine and Isreal, things the Japanese may want to avoid.  Had Japan shared its borders with an ethnic minority with its own government, the relative peace and calm of this country would be questionable.   No other country can be like nor emulate Japan.   So, where does this spirit of charity and altruism come from exactly?   Why do the Japanese feel they need to save the whole world, while caring very little for its own people?   It's the Board of Education...?  The essay below is one such example of what Japanese kids learn in school,…
