Woke Magazine Demands to Know: Where Are the Black People in Shogun?

I thought this headline must be a troll, but apparently the writer is quite serious(ly retarded).

blackpeopleinshogun.jpg

There's a new drama that looks pretty awesome called "Shogun" which is about Japan in the 1600s. So, of course, woke journalists are asking the real question, "Where are all the black people?"

Okay, I'm going to be fair to this journalist and look at the story. Giving him the click he so desperately longs for, to hear out the argument.

...

According to multiple sources, one of the early real-life Shoguns, Sakanoue no Tamuramaro (758 - 811), was Black, though denied by others. There is a consensus he was something other than pure Japanese, and he is often considered descended from the Ainu, the darker-skinned indigenous people of northern Japan who were subjected to forced assimilation and colonization.

Even if that were true, the Ainu are not "black people" as people use that term, and as this asinine fake "journalist" wants to suggest. They are merely darker-skinned Asians. We see darker-skinned Asians all the time. They are not "black people."

His entire argument to include black people in a show about Japan is that there MAY HAVE been ONE black person who was a Shogun. Although no one knows if he was really black or if he was just dark-skinned. But since a black person MAY have existed in 1600 Japan they HAVE to be inserted into the show.

Because he's just trying to be historically accurate, after all.


Historian Mark Hyman described a statue in honor of Tamuramaro in his book.

"As seen in the temple where he has was honored, Maro's statue was taller than his fellow contributors," wrote Hyman "His hair was curly and tight; his eyes were large and wide-set and brown. His nostrils were flared, his forehead wider, his jaws thick and slightly protruded."

That's not a Maro statue, that's a JESUS statue! At least according to the Black Israelites.


Umm, am I crazy, or is assuming that this describes a black man incredibly racist according to the woke Left? Like, saying he had curly hair and big nostrils so he's obviously black seems SUPER sketchy.

The left is becoming stupider and stupider and drunker and drunker on the ideology of the maladjusted, marginal, and mentally ill.

And people are getting sick of it. Normies used to accept this crap because they don't want to seem rude or even RACIST!!!.

But now even they are rejecting this crap, and telling these maniacs to get therapy.

Huh. Setting aside the judgement and assertions here, this is very interesting.

The equivalence being drawn is fascinating. If the Ainu are "black," then this is simultaneously both Ainu erasure *and* black erasure, all in one simple sentence. The Ainu don't exist because they're black, and the blacks don't exist because all non-whites (or in this case, non-Japanese, but either way boiled down to "non-dominant in the territory, unless that territory is Africa) are black, making the distinction meaningless.

I don't think these people are very smart.

That's a pretty damn big "maybe" in the first place. Where the hell would he have come from, and how would he have gotten to Japan? The African slave trade wasn't big in the Orient, and the Japanese were heavily cloistered and didn't much exploring beyond their shores (other than the occasional war with its neighbors).

And statuary and other artworks are known for their tremendous dedication to the perfect reflection of reality - the photographs of a prior age. A tall statue with wideset eyes can mean only one thing: that is *exactly* how that person looked. There is a zero percent chance that the artist did any embellishing (for example, making a powerful figure taller than he might have been, or giving him exotic or desirable features) or made any errors in his interpretation.

This is iron-clad evidence.

Therapy is the last thing these people need. All that will do is accelerate the feedback loop.

What they need is to detox. Get offline for six months. Go outside. Join a bowling league or play some softball or some other activity with real people. Maybe - though this is a longshot - consider going to church or something, even try a social club.

The cure for this is to de-atomize, engage with real people for a bit, and come back from the anomie that perpetuates and compounds their madness.

Digital detox and reality, not therapy, is probably a much better choice.

Italians are pretty racist.

Although, there's an entry on the IMDB page for Dune 2 that calls Giancarlo Giannini, who played the Emperor in the SciFi Channel series, Hispanic. He's Italian.

So, can Hispanics from Italy be racist?

185 I well recall the original TV miniseries of Shogun in 1980 or so, with Richard Chamberlain. The futrue Mrs. Wolfus No. 2 saw it as well, and was . . . quite fond . . . of the scene where the lady Mariko comes to Blackthorne's room by night and they make love without ever lighting so much as a candle.

As you can imagine, I was fond of the scene too. . . .
Posted by: Wolfus Aurelius, Dreaming of Elsewhere at March 12, 2024 01:46 PM (J2vNu)

I remember the Chamberlain character being offered a girl for his pleasure. When he declined he was offered a boy. He then expressed great offense at the suggestion he was a sodomite.

187 Reading ther description my first thought was, "wow that sounds racist to think he's black" then saw the other writer had thr same thought.

Lefties love to claim black people had to do with everything. Just like they basically claim Europeans sat around just eating dirt until they were shown food by middle easterners. As asians are becoming just another group of white people, it should be expected any accomplishments they made will just be given to Africans.

That's too extreme, but it's better than dealing with assholes like these.

296 Never Again Trump! Breaking news—and, for a change, good news! William Kristol

The Republican Accountability PAC, helmed by Bulwark publisher Sarah Longwell, launched the 2024 iteration of Republican Voters Against Trump (RVAT)...the 2020 effort targeted swing voters in key states with messages from Republicans and ex-Republicans who explained why they couldn’t vote for Donald Trump.

“I voted for Donald Trump in 2020. January 6th was the end of Donald Trump for me,” says Ethan from Wisconsin. “The peaceful transfer of power is one of the defining pieces of our democracy, and I could not believe that someone I had formerly supported would get behind an effort that would throw that under the bus . . . Donald Trump is not a viable option. I will vote for Biden.”

And here’s Dave from Pennsylvania: “I’m a two-time Trump voter. I do not plan on voting for Donald Trump in the 2024 election. Do you want a guy like this leading the oldest democracy in the world, the world’s number one superpower? Do you want this guy leading us? I don’t.”

I’m a Never Trumper. And I welcome with open arms all Never Again Trumpers.

351 341 In other news, cable news outlets just received 60 audition requests for "Former GOP staffer" contributor roles.

On its very first day in control of the Republican National Committee following last week's takeover, Team Trump wasted no time as it ventures to reshape the RNC in Trump's image -- immediately bringing the axe down on more than 60 of the organization's 200-some staffers. Vendors are also bracing for possible terminations of their RNC relationships.

2. Trump wants to "free" Jan. 6 defendants and promised them presidential pardons should he win. Nearly 500 people have been sentenced and prosecutors have secured more than 950 convictions, Trump wants to free them all on “day one” as retribution against his enemies.

And Turks not surprisingly have a large dollop of Greek ancestry which pisses Turks off too.

Like most controversies in the world today involving science, somewhere above 50 percent of the population simply refuse when confronted with a scientific fact that they dislike. Seems to be universal.

The fact that too many scientists follow the money and not the process of science makes it far easier to deny, deflect, and ignore scientific facts that are disliked.

Mostly, I think the confusion is over the word "black".

A sort of cultural imperialism with regard to the meaning of "black" from Leftards.

In the olden days, people who were darker than average were often referred to as "black" or "brown".

As in the "Black Irish", or Black Jack So and So.

I could be wrong but I'm willing to bet that there definitely wasn't a "black" as in African Shogun.

It's pretty stupid on the face of it if you read any Japanese history and see just how difficult it was to become Shogun.

Honestly they're doing a far better job of dealing with history than the USA. I was taken to an Ainu Museum that was both enlightening and scary, as it was off in the barren mountains in winter and seriously, it explained a LOT about why the Ainu have the culture they have.

Posted by: TheJamesMadison

GOP has followed the idea of low turnout base elections instead of actually trying to build a political coalition for the long term. Essentially a defeatist tactic. Only Reagan and Trump more or less fought back and ironically both were former Democrats.

The fighting will of the GOP was killed by the New Deal and the long dominance of the Democrats in the House and Senate after that. That made the GOP turn to failure theater to raise funds which permeated the party apparatus. As one wag put it, the Republicans were the tax collectors for the welfare state for most of that period.

Even the victory over the Soviet Union owes more to Reagan than the GOP during his period. GHWB even tried to prop up the failing Sov Union and its satellites such as E. Germany to preserve the status quo because change was viewed as dangerous.

The left has made the Dems insane but the GOP has been awol from the political policy battlefield for decades.

A Kansas judge has ruled that the state isn’t violating transgender residents’ rights under the state constitution by refusing to change their driver’s licenses to reflect their gender identities

IIRC, it was the Baltic states that GHWB tried to persuade to stay in the Soviet Union.

529 I wonder what's going to be released about Ken Buck?
Posted by: Maj. Healey

I won't be surprised. When he worked for the DOJ: Buck was formally reprimanded and required to take ethics classes in 2001 for a meeting he had with defense attorneys about a felony case he thought should not be pursued. One of the three men that were charged donated $700 to his campaign. This ended his career at DOJ. He has since then have had other "controversies" in his career. Good riddance.

539 Point of order. The most enthusiastic supporter of German unification was Bush. The only one more so was Bundeskanzler Kohl. History bears this out. Yes, there was genuine fear over the collapse of the Soviet Union. The unification of Germany? Bush was all in, even when Mitterrand, Gorbachev and PM Thatcher were not.
Posted by: Catch Thirty-Thr33
======
Misremembered part of the event--GHWB wanted a united Germany to stay in NATO against Russian objections. He tried to prop up the Sov Union and Gorby even when the Sov Union was disintegrating from the Baltic Republics on down.

Bush I was a shitty president who also instigated the useless Somalia and Gulf War I peace without victory. He trampled on gun rights, propped up the corrupt PRI for NAFTA purposes, etc. Domestically, he was even worse by raising taxes in a recession, kowtowing to the NE Republicans to put an ill suited Souter on the bench, etc.

... Cuba was once (not that long ago) an American territory. Spoils from the Spanish-American War.

By current norms (pushed by Russia), we are entitled to a "special military operation" to take it back.

Austria "pounced" on the incident to deliver an extremely harsh ultimatum demanding investigation of the incident. To many nation's surprise, Serbia agreed to just about all of the conditions. Unphazed by this Austria went to war anyway, then lost the initial invasion of Serbia in WWI.

547 Good article, better comments.
Thanks for the info on Samurai / Japanese fighters in Mexico and the Spanish America's.
I had only known of them serving as guards for the Portuguese trading ports / stations in East Africa, after the establishment of the Shogunate in the later 1600s. These were the Ronin and the farmer / peasant fighters who were disarmed by the "Great Sword Hunt".
The farmer / footsoldiers were called "Ashigaru". In the East African common language, Swahili, a soldier is called an "Askari".
I would think that for an African tribal warrior, running up against a Samurai would be a memorable event, for the few survivors.

Your hatred of Bush XLI is blinding you.

Now, I don't consider him the worst president we ever had. Some things he did right. The push for German unification is one. Yes, he gave us that nitwit Souter on the Court. But he also appointed Clarence Thomas to the Court. Yeah, Gulf War I didn't end to a lot of people's liking, but the United States gained a lot of diplomatic capital from it and other events, squandered by the next clown. At heart he was a blue blood country club Republican and that wasn't good. But even so he was better than the guy people insisted had to take his place.

553 There was no office of "Shogun" in Japan in 800. It only became the actual office 400 years later. I am willing to say categorically that there was not one single black person in Japan before 1540 (ie, not before the Portuguese arrived).
