Contrary to the popular intuition, the Japanese brand of racism does not promote Asian supremacy. Instead, it promotes white supremacy on behalf of whites, placing the Japanese as “honorary” whites. This book describes an Asian-American experience in Japan. This real-life story takes place in 1993 and 1994 in Omori, Yokohama, Ginza, Nippacho, and Kamakura. White Supremacy in Japan: A Memoir offers an autobiographical work in which the author seeks to relay an account of his experiences while working for a Japanese cosmetics firm, Shiseido. It opens to explain that the author was initially excited by his new employment in Japan. However, little by little, he became aware that Caucasian features and images were highly desired and valued by the Japanese population and that those foreigners who were not Caucasian were treated with scorn, contempt, and derision. Through the course of the memoir, the author recalls the ways in which these Japanese brands of prejudices became clear to him and discuss the reasons he had for abruptly leaving Japan. As the book concludes, the author reflects on both the positive and negative aspects of his experiences and scrutinizes the complexities and vagaries of Japanese brand of racial prejudice. In White Supremacy in Japan: A Memoir, the author frames his memoir with descriptions of settings, individuals, conversations, and his own inner thoughts and emotions in 1993 and 1994. To date, not much is written about Asian-American experience in Japan. The Japanese do not recognize and understand this particular identity. Nor many Americans understand the difference between the Asian-American, the Japanese-American, and the Japanese. This book is the first of its kind.
