Black Life in Japan
Posted 11/24/07 , edited 12/4/07
This is actually kind of an old series but I didn't see any reference to it here so I thought I might mention it.


BLIJ is an engaging 30-minute show that follows the exploits of host Dan Smith, as he reports on how urban American culture is impacting on the world’s second largest economy. Their weekly travels bring them face-to-face with many of the world’s biggest entertainment stars and also offer an intriguing look into Japan’s vibrant culture as well as black entrepreneurs that thrive in the “Land of the Rising Sun.”

I unfortunately do not know where you can watch full episodes except on satellite, and cable in some very limited markets.

You may be able to find some clips on youtube:

So what is your point?

I just thought some people might find this interesting since I keep seeing all these threads about stuff like "what? black people watch anime?" From the way some people talk you'd think all black people either live in Africa or a ghetto in the US and never go anywhere else, or do anything that isn't "black."

since when did being black mean urban.

i thinkthink this could be an interesting thread. there are obvious influences of black culture in fashion and music, but what i am more curious about is not the presence of black culture in japan, but black people.

I'm black and I've been wondering about this because I wanna live in Japan one day.

Thanks for posting.

No prob SasukexxSenpai

Phillia: yes there are actual real-life black people in Japan, not just Japanese people trying to pretend that they're black. This series is more about the former not the later.

What's the point in this thread? I just don't get the idea.
Posted 12/2/07
The point is to tell people about this show in case they're interested.

I live in Japan and there are black people here.

As far as "black culture" goes, go to Shibuya any night of the week and tell me hip hop fashion isn't making the rounds.

Black people get stared at here the same as any foreigner does, but it's not like there are problems.

I see you don't "FIT" in any type of intellectual conversation.

Thanks for the info.
