Japan is still struggling with issues about racial "purity", but things are changing.
'Haafu' and proud: Miss World Japan won by mixed-race contestant

Priyanka Yoshikawa, whose father is Indian, says she was inspired by Ariana Miyamoto, the 2015 Miss Universe Japan winner who faced racial backlash.
Japan will be represented at this year’s Miss World contest by a woman with a Japanese mother and Indian father after Priyanka Yoshikawa became the country’s second mixed-race contestant in a row chosen for a major international pageant.

The qualified elephant trainer who counts kickboxing among her hobbies said she would use her title to promote greater inclusiveness in Japan where, according to government statistics, haafu – those born with one non-Japanese parent – comprised 2% of all children born in 2012.

The 22-year-old Yoshikawa, who was born in Tokyo but also spent some of her childhood in India and the US, praised Ariana Miyamoto, who won Miss Universe Japan in 2015, for giving her the confidence to enter Miss World.

Miyamoto, the child of a Japanese mother and African American father, endured a racist backlash on social media, with some asking why the title had not been awarded to a “pure” Japanese, although many other commenters celebrated her victory...

She sounds like she'd be a great match for JL - a beautiful half-Japanese elephant trainer who kick-boxes in her spare time. :thumb:

Many farmers that breed animals, know that the first cross between two different purebreds eg, Friesian and Hereford , produce some very nice animals. I guess that the same thing goes with humans. Looking in our own backyard, you will see some lovely looking kids born to barangs and Cambodian girls, and mostly they are a lot smarter than your average Cambodian.
Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

The new Miss World is not the only lovely haafu; there is also Marica Hase (and at least one other)
