VIDEO: Eric Robinson of Black Tokyo – Race & Identity in Japan
I am featured, along with Black-Okinawan thinker Mitzi-Uehara Carter, in the latest edition of Black Tokyo‘s Vlog at Youtube.
This edition features issues whiteness, blackness and Japanese-ness in relation to Race and Identity in Japan.
Reflecting on the election of Ariana Miyamoto as Miss Universe Japan in 2015, Eric points to various critiques, insights, and conditions that construct the definitions of social change, Japan and Japanese-ness, and the roles of mixed-race-ness in Japanese society, whether influencing Japan or not.
