Half-Indian beauty crowned as Miss Japan

Tokyo, (Pakistan Point News – 6th September, 2016) : Striking a fresh blow for racial equality a half-Indian beauty queen, an elephant trainer, was crowned as Miss Japan on Monday. Priyanka Yoshikawa's tearful victory comes a year after Ariana Miyamoto faced an ugly backlash for becoming the first black woman to represent Japan. Yoshikawa, born in Tokyo to an Indian father and a Japanese mother, vowed to continue the fight against racial prejudice in homogeneous Japan, where multiracial children make up just two percent of those born annually. "We are Japanese. Yes, I'm half Indian and people are asking me about my 'purity', yes, my dad is Indian and I'm proud of it, I'm proud that I have Indian in me. But that does not mean I'm not Japanese."
