From the BBC
With a Japanese mother and African American father, Ariana Miyamoto has become the first bi-racial woman to be crowned Miss Japan.
The question of whether a person of mixed race should be eligible to win the competition has since provoked a heated argument on social media,
Oh I can so believe the kind of comments Ariana is getting. Japanese culture is so future focused in some things and ever so in the past for others. I understand the history of Japan, but I can’t help but say its 2015!
I honestly can’t imagine how bad the Japanese view on mix race relationships… Hopefully this will start to sway things.
