    Ariana Miyamoto is NOT Japanese Enough

    in Current Events

     


    Instead of celebrating her crown, Ariana Miyamoto is already finding the need to defend it.  


    Japan's newest Miss Universe contestant broke barriers when she was recent chosen to represent her country. But because the 20-year-old is the daughter of a Japanese woman and a black man from America, some are questioning whether she really is Japanese enough to hold the title.


    According to Japanese websites, comments on Twitter ranged from, "Is it okay to select a hafu to represent Japan?" to "Because this is Miss Universe Japan, don't you think hafu are a no-no." Hafu is a Japanese term used to refer to someone who is biracial. 


    In an interview with press, Miyamoto insisted that while she doesn't "look Japanese" on the outside, on the inside, there are many Japanese things about her.


    In addition to being born and raised Nagasaki, the young adult also is a Japanese citizen who can speak the language fluently.


    While some critics have been vocal about their hopes of having another contestant take her spot, others have shown their support for the newly crowned beauty queen.

    Japanese military strategy that determined final war decisions

    in Current Events

    Jane and her guest discuss the consequential moments of WWII as the Japanese highest military command wrestled with the Emperor on what solution was best for their country.  They had the moral dilemma of not wanting to admit defeat vs. accepting the perilous doom that the U.S. was going to try to make it impossible for the Japanese not to surrender.  Pride is one thing, death another but the casualty level became clear what decision to make.  SouthEast Asia did not think that Japan paid a high enough price even with the two Atom bombs being dropped.  Please tune in to this pivolal moment of history.  Some of the revelations are based on the examination of the movie, "The Longest Day."

    The Edge with Cassandre Dayne

    in Entertainment

    Join Cassandre Dayne on Sunday, August 2nd at 2pm EST as she highlights another artist who takes their works to the edge. Up this week - David Paris Carter-Singer, an accomplished author and fellow Booktrope team member. 


    Paris Singer was born in Brussels, Belgium. He has lived in the U.K. and in various places in Spain, where he currently resides. At university, he studied English law and Spanish law, but didn't like it. He then studied translation and didn't like it, either.


    Currently, he teaches English in the south of Spain. He is told he has far too many interests. A few are basketball, tennis, swimming, playing his old guitar, learning Japanese, painting, reading, cooking...(See? Too many). Not a day goes by, however, where he doesn't write something, be it under a palm tree or on a bench at a bus stop somewhere.


    Join for a lively conversation...If you dare.
