Yes girl, let them know! You found out the truth on your own. After years of hearing how the rest of the world hates black people, I began to travel and find the natives whispering about how they cannot stand white Americans. Besides, how can other countries hate black people when we rarely have the money or time to travel to such extravagant locations. I do not think that "Shaquita" is giving them hell at the Four Season, because to be honest, she probably can't afford it! I cannot wait until they contact me about not watching TV for a year. Again, only in the states is stuff like that a big deal!


Thanks for sharing. I always enjoy reading about your experiences in Japan.

confused highschool girl

I'm a freshman in high school, who just started learning Japanese and is interested in there culture. During my Junior year, I was planning on going to japan to study aboard for half year. But recently I been worrying about the trip, because of blog and articles I have read online about how black people are treated in japan. I was wondering if you could answer my concerns. I have a huge passion for this country's culture, but now I'm afraid to go?

I went to Japan about a month ago. It is definitely my favorite place in the world now. Living in South Florida (or America for that matter) I could not have imagined that people were so courteous, clean, respectful, etc. I'll definitely go back because I couldn't absorb everything in the 10 days I was there. By the way you blog is very nice and informative. I'm hooked in other words. Keep doing ya thing Sista!


I'm soo proud of u! You're definatly an inspiration!! I've been hooked on to the japanese language for years since I was in HS and I hope to inspire others just like you. Besides that I'll be in studying in Osaka for a year at Kwansei Gakuin and yes I will have a blog on that, but besides that I've also made a huge impression on my bf because now he wants to live and work in Japan too!! Other than that keep doing your thing and I hope that I'll meet you and do what you're doing!! ^_^

Nice blog. I spent a year in S. Korea and I can tell you: Race isn't that big a deal. We are emulated, appreciated and the questions that are asked aren't rude. I met plenty of Korean men and women who wanted to know about our politics, our music and differences. I had a great experience there and (I hate to say it) was treated better there than when I've been to any other city in the U.S. The work ethic and culture there is very impressive and interesting. It's been a while since I"ve been there, but I'd love to go back.

Black Buddha

Someone suggested that people who are black and Buddhist should make their own documentary rather than complain about being left out of CNN's investigative report on black America, so I did:

What's Happening i'm new to this, I stumbled upon this I have discovered It absolutely useful and it has helped me out loads. I am hoping to contribute & assist other users like its aided me. Good job.


I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours nowadays, yet I by no means discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the internet might be much more helpful than ever before.

Your Facebook and Twitter friends (and their friends, too) are the first networks to try. Also, they are using the facility of Web Video Marketing, on their websites. Hence it is much better to choose a professional brochure design which provides all the above facilities and services.
