6月のVital Japanでは、New York出身の黒人作家であるバイエ・マクニールさんをスピーカーにお迎えし、日本社会における “Diversity” と “Inclusion”について考えます。

マクニールさんは、Japan Timesのコラムやその著書で知られ、日本において人種差別問題の批評家としても活動されています。
テレビタレントの黒塗りメイクが人種差別的であると米New York Times、英BBC等の海外メディアがこぞって取り上げるニュース(”Blackface in Japan controversy” )がありましたが、マクニールさんはそのきっかけを作った方でもあります。
wikipedia: Baye McNeil参照

国際基準において、日本が多様性と包括を重視した社会といえるのか?
もしそうでないのであれば、どうしてゆくことが必要なのか、具体的な事例をご紹介いただきながら問題提起いただき、参加者と共にディスカッションしてゆきます。

グループディスカッションなどを交えながらのインタラクティブなセッション。使用言語は英語のみです。セッション、そしてその後のNetworkingともども参加者での交流も楽しみましょう!

※このイベントは、Vital Japan monthly sessionです。Vital English-英語勉強会とは異なりますので、初めての方は参加要件をご確認のご参加ください。(英語の勉強会ではありません。)

 

Over the past few years, there have been a growing number of incidents that have garnered local and international attention regarding Japan and its views and treatment (intentional and otherwise) of non-Japanese residents and biracial citizens.

Incidents with racial overtones that have made it glaringly obvious to the global community that while Japan may not be a racist/xenophobic/deplorably insensitive country, it certainly has a lot of work to do to prevent that labeling moving forward.

Due to its reputation for being a safe and “homogeneous” country replete with polite and welcoming people, Japan still garners the benefit of the doubt. But these incidents, though often superficial, are problematic and symptomatic of some deep-seated issues that require the country’s full-attention to remedy.

His monthly column, “Black Eye”, for The Japan Times, raises awareness of issues related to “blackness” in Japan, and profiles people of African descent from around the globe living in Japan .

In 2015, Baye spearheaded a successful petition to protest the airing of a blackface minstrel show on Japanese TV, and since has become the voice of people of African descent all over Asia.
