Biracial Beauty Queen Challenges Japanese racist attitudes

Ariana Miyamoto being crowned Miss Universe Japan in March created history, the first-ever winner to be biracial. Her father is African-American, and mother Japanese. At first she didn’t want to compete but then a close friend who was also biracial committed suicide. That’s when Ariana decided to do something about the suffering he’d endured. She said the friend “really hated being half Japanese and not being fully accepted into Japanese society. Japan still has racial issues, and I wanted to do something about it.” One post said “Japan should be represented by a pure blood,” others expressed disappointment, while many questioned whether she was truly Japanese.
