So now that I have returned, to be seen as Japanese, is not what I want, was never what I wanted, nor on my agenda. But rather, to be accepted for whatever I may be, to them and to you.


I wasn't seen as black in America, because of everything else but my looks; my behavior, my word choice, my aura, you name it. Obviously, I'm black. I'm owning it, and nothing anyone says about my behavior can take that away from me.
