    "For a Samurai to be brave, he must have a bit of Black blood."
    --Japanese Proverb

    THE BLACK PRESENCE IN EARLY JAPAN
    Although the island nation of Japan, occupying the extreme eastern extensions of Asia, is assumed by many to have been historically composed of an essentially homogeneous population and culture, the accumulated evidence (much of which has been quietly ignored) places the matter in a vastly different light, and though far more study needs to be done on the subject, it seems indisputable that Black people in Japan played an important role from the most remote phases of antiquity into at least the ninth century.
    Meaningful indications of an African presence in ancient Japan have been unearthed from the most remote ages of the Japanese past. To begin with, and as a significant example, a February 15, 1986 report carried by the Associated Press, chronicled that:

    "The oldest Stone Age hut in Japan has been unearthed near Osaka....Archeologists date the hut to about 22,000 years ago and say it resembles the dugouts of African bushmen, according to Wazuo Hirose of Osaka Prefectural of Education's cultural division. `Other homes, almost as old, have been found before, but this discovery is significant because the shape is cleaner, better preserved' and is similar to the Africans' dugouts."​
    In 1923, anthropologist Roland B. Dixon wrote that "this earliest population of Japan were in the main a blend of Proto-Australoid and Proto-Negroid types, and thus similar in the ancient underlying stratum of the population, southward along the whole coast and throughout Indo-China, and beyond to India itself." Dixon pointed out that, "In Japan, the ancient Negrito element may still be discerned by characteristics which are at the same time exterior and osteologic."
    In his last major text, Civilization or Barbarism: An Authentic Anthropology (published posthumously in English in 1991), the brilliant Dr. Cheikh Anta Diop (1923-1986) pointed out that:

    "In the first edition of the Nations negres et culture (1954), I posited the hypothesis that the Yellow race must be the result of an interbreeding of Black and White in a cold climate, perhaps around the end of he Upper Paleolithic period. This idea is widely shared today by Japanese scholars and researchers. One Japanese scientist, Nobuo Takano, M.D., chief of dermatology at the Hammatsu Red Cross Hospital, has just developed this idea in Japanese that appeared in 1977, of which he was kind enough to give me a copy in 1979, when, passing through Dakar, he visited my laboratory with a group of Japanese scientists.​
    Takano maintains, in substance, that the first human being was Black; then Blacks gave birth to Whites, and the interbreeding of these two gave rise to the Yellow race; these three stages are in fact the title of his book in Japanese, as he explained it to me."​
    As to linguistics, in 1987 former Senegalese president Leopold Sedar Senghor noted that, "The people who populate the island of Japan today are descendants from Blacks....Let us not forget that the first population of Japan was Black...and gave to Japan their first language."

    It would not surprise me if we do have a genetic link to the Japanese, and maybe even Asians in general.

    I have seen pictures of Chinese women that had darker skin than many black people. I have also been told that some have curly hair (like mixed black people).

    And in the case of the Japanese, there are elements of their religion (Shintoism) that resemble ATRs.

    This saying alone speaks volumes and should cause one to want to look further if one is truly interested.

    Maybe that movie starring Tom Cruise should have starred Wesley Snipes and been called THE BLACK SAMURAI instead of The Last Samurai.

    SAKANOUYE TAMURAMARO -BLACK SHOGUN


    Sakanouye Tamuramaro was born in 758A.D.and died 811. He was an African whose family had migrated from Korea many generations earlier. He was known as the Paragon of Japanese Military Virtue, the first to hold the title of Sei-i-Tai Shogun. Sak-Tamura's public and family life is well documented. He lived during the early Heian Period (794-1185c.e.) a time in history which gave birth to the Samurai Warriors who modeled themselves after Tamuramaro. (must have a drop of black blood to be Samurai Warrior) . After the failed attempts by the Japanese Military troops against the AINU the emperor decided to call upon Tamura. His success was one of his greatest military achievements. The Emperor bestowed the title of Sei-i-Tai Shogun upon Tamura making him the first to hold this title. He was also the first military statesman of Japan.

    Shintoism is an informal animist religion that honors ancestors, pays tribute to kamis, or spirits, and has traditionally had strong bonds with the Japanese state, emperor and culture. There are literally millions of kamis, most of whom are associated with the heavens or natural objects on earth such as trees and mountains. One of the most important deities is Amaterasu-omikami, the sun goddess, who, according to legend, gave birth to Japan's first ruler, Emperor Jimmu. Japan's present emperor is reportedly the 125th in an unbroken line of descendants of Emperor Jimmu.
    Shinto has been around for over 1450 years, coexisting with Confucianism, Buddhism and Taoism. The name Shinto is based on the Chinese character Shin-tao which roughly means "Way of the Gods." It is derived from Chinese words she, meaning “divine being” and tao, meaning “the way.” The term “Shinto” was coined in the sixth century when Buddhism entered Japan so the two religions could be distinguished from one another.


    Determining the number of Shinto followers in Japan is difficult because it is difficult to define exactly what a Shinto follower is. One survey counted 3.25 million Shinto followers while another counted 107 million. A survey that came up the figure of 85 million did so by counting the number of people that contributed to shrine festivals, something most Japanese feel obligated to do as much out of social duty as religious belief.
    Shintoism has no founder (info: meaning it more than likely was founded by a black person/people), no official sacred scriptures, no fixed dogma and no concept of afterlife. On one hand it is very formal and organized. On the other hand it embraces a hodgepodge collection of folk practices, everyday beliefs and secret rituals. Fo many Japanese it is simply a “celebration of life, of all forms of life and the place of human beings in nature.”
    Shinto is the national religion of Japan. Some call it a "patriotic cult" not a religion because its links to the founding of Japan and the Japanese Imperial family. Others see it as more of a community religious because of its emphasis on local shrines and local guardian gods. Some scholars insist that, like Confucianism, Shintoism is not a religion but rather a set of customs, rituals and beliefs related to ancestor cults and animism.

    - Any of this sound familiar?

    According to Shinto belief, Emperor Jimmu is regarded as a direct descendant of the sun goddess, Amaterasu. Amaterasu had a son called Ame no Oshihomimi no Mikoto and through him a grandson named Ninigi-no-Mikoto. She sent her grandson to the Japanese islands where he eventually married Konohana-Sakuya-hime. Among their three sons was Hikohohodemi no Mikoto, also called Yamasachi-hiko, who married Toyotama-hime. She was the daughter of Ryūjin, the Japanese sea god. They had a single son called Hikonagisa Takeugaya Fukiaezu no Mikoto. The boy was abandoned by his parents at birth and consequently raised by Tamayori-hime, his mother's younger sister. They eventually married and had a total of four sons. The last of these sons, Kamuyamato Iwarebiko, became Emperor Jimmu.

    The Imperial house of Japan traditionally based its claim to the throne on its descent from Jimmu.
