    The naming of 20-year-old Ariana Miyamoto as Japan's contestant in the upcoming Miss Universe beauty pageant has provoked a storm of criticism.

    With an African-American father, Miyamoto's Japanese status is insufficiently "pure", according to some critics.

    Miyamoto was crowned with the glittering tiara as the most beautiful woman in Japan on March 8, but it did not take long for internet commentators to question her ethnicity.

    On the Girls Channel website, anonymous posters were expressing their disappointment.

    "The idea is to have a Japanese representing Japan," wrote one poster.

    "I think it's bad that a 'half' has become the Japanese representative," added a commentator, while another posted: "I don't understand this selection criteria."

    Miyamoto was born in the city of Sasebo, in Nagasaki Prefecture, to a Japanese mother and African-American father. She attended junior high school in her home town before completing high school in the United States

    I don't blame them! Afrikans are the only people who celebrate their mixed breeds. Girlfriend chose the wrong side of the family to identify with. Someone should have told her that Europeans aren't the only racists in the world. I hope she knows now.

    Japan was originally populated by Black People who migrated out of Africa and Japanese bear Nigerian names. There were Black Japanese up to 120 years ago.
