    Not intending to sound racist, but I never knew there were Black Japanese people. First one I`ve ever seen.

    Great singing, aside from the engrishness of the `What a wonderful world`. If he perfected his English a bit, he could probably pass as the original.

    In the interest of benefiting the doubt, I`m going to assume this isn`t a "blackface" performance.

    I think it was simply a good-natured, sincere impression of Louis Armstrong, and wasn`t meant to be racist. That said, they`re walking one thin line there. You wouldn`t find this on U.S. television.

    Anyone who says, "oh this isn`t racist, it`s just an impression." clearly has never been to Japan. Japanese society is racist in the way that they don`t necessarily hate any other race, they just think their own race is superior to all others. If you are in Japan, you`ll see allot of signs that say "No Foreigners" and you will be called a "gaijin" which is a negative term meaning "foreigner". However, their racism is in no way blatant or simple and there is little to no violence involved. In japan you will often be treated kindly, but the racism is such that they will never see you as an equal or accept you as closely as a fellow Japanese. It`s in no way as bad as what the west considers "racist", but in a way they are racist. Oh, and there`s allot of black jokes, in part because they`re the smallest minority.

    I second that motion, Neagle; these people are SOO over-sensitized to very existence of racial distinctions that they deliberately misinterpret the auspices of an actual tribute with the trappings of racism which, if we remember, is a belief or expression of one`s racial superiority; not an elaborate reproduction of someone you must respect enough to go to such great lengths. I think we’d know it if this was a sinister mockery of some type; the audience would be laughing AT him, not muttering in awe WITH him…

    Stot 3: "Oh jesus......What a problem.....I wonder is this how they think of black people."
    Yeah, they think of them as being black. Wow, how insulting. On top of it, they also go to elaborate lengths to imitate the precise movements, facial expressions and even musical accessories possessed by the original artist onstage. Then they go (or at least one of them goes) to the trouble of imitating a trumpet with his lips and creating an original solo for it which never existed before just to illustrate the style of the performance he is imitating. Yeah, great job all of you "this is taking racism to a whole new level" over-sensitized sycophants.

    He`s in blackface, but not traditional blackface, and as far as I know the Japanese don`t exactly have a history of black-oppretion.

    To be honest I don`t think it`s all that bad, unless the Japanese also have a history of racial violence/slavery/etc towards blacks.

    People on SNL dressing up as a celebrity isn`t wrong, and neither is blackup for that reason. The reason blackup is wrong is that it used to be a case of blackng up and mocking black people, or in some cases blacking up simply because they didn`t want to allow black actors.

    In this case there is no racial history (as far as I know), and it`s not a mockery. No problem from me.

    My two cents. He`s not in blackface, he`s in costume. He`s doing an impression of a specific person who happens to have been "black". If he were doing a generic person, and making fun of stereotypes, that would be offensive and racist. he`s not. He`s doing an impression of a specific person, so being made up to look like that person is not offensive.

    Then again, I`m a naive fool who has never faced racism in his life. So, what do I know?

    I think he is either one of those very dark Japanese people, or he painted his face.

    And it`s not racist? What`s wrong with you people?

    Something tells me you`ve never seen Louis Armstrong when he performs. He does look like that when he sings.

    nah... its not racist. if he would be imitating a white man, and there wouldnt be in "need" of and cosmetics, no one would react, but since the imitated person was a black guy, he would need the make-up because he was going for the full show, smoking and fake trompet and so on... if you think this is racist, i would guess you got a stick up ur ass and you would probably sue som1 if u where hit (not even hard) by a car and the driver sincerely apologises.

    Fun show btw, its not easy to do Steve and when u got it, u always over do. this guy was fun!

    It`s not racist because Japan doesn`t have the tortured history with blacks, slaves and segregation the way we do in the U.S.. Blackface has a very bad connotation and history here. Over there, his skin pain is just a costume. And note that it was not done in the blackface style which serves to caricature black people in a very unflattering way - he just made himself look like the original.

    That was really good! Like a light-hearted version of Stars In Their Eyes, but with more serious dressing up. Is the goal to be entertaining or a good singer? Or both, perhaps?

    But I can`t believe some people think it`s racist. That`s just paranoia more than anything if you think that. He`s just trying to look like Louis Armstrong, and you know what? He does. Awesome.

    That`s a very good point DiePSPolice. Apparently, they are incredibly racist in Japan against other Asians though.

    This was impressive and close to the original.
    About people who think this is racist... just get a f#c$ing life people! Not all nations are as prude and moronic as middle american commoners. And if the black community really is insulted by this, then I guess we really should got back to slavery since we got it all wrong.

    At first, I thought: this might be racist, mainly because of the overly-exaggerated facial expressions. But I was wrong - the real Louis Armstrong does exactly the same thing and that performer must have watched the youtube video a gazillion times to imitate the performance that closely!!! And you can`t spend all that effort on immitating a man if he isn`t admirable. And what`s with the comments about how asians keep their eyes open? Isn`t that racist??

    Please, think before you speak! God! This is why my dad says everyone is messed up! Im perfectly sure that the show meant nothing by a man impersonating Louis Armstrong. So just sit down and calm down!!

    But what the hellll is the point of the show lmboo??

    Let`s know what the word means before we accuse people of it:

    "the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race"

    Ok, so because a guy mimicked the voice and gestures of a specific black man, you accuse him of racism? Give me a break.

    Hypersensitivity drives me nuts. Political correctness is overrated.

    Let me explain why this is not racist:

    The (Asian) guy was impersonating Louis Armstrong, who is black. It`s that simple. A white/yellow skinned man trying to impersonate a black man would not work well at all. The professional impersonator is simply doing a good job of fitting into a roll. If you were familiar with Louis Armstrong, you would realize that his black facial features, as well as his vocal style and expressions were portrayed very well in this particular impersonation. The inherent flaw in your argument, bonzoello, is that you claim that altering 1 or 2 features can transform you into someone else. The guy that did the Louis Armstron impersonation payed attention to the smallest details, such as the kerchief Satchomo would often hold in his hand. Also, he did not go around screaming, "hi-ya I`m a dead black musician!" It`s clear that he studied archival footage of Armstrong and practiced for weeks to be create the most realistic impersonation. The End

    Anyways, anyone who calls that racist is racist themselves for even perceiving it as racist in the first place. A regular person watches the video and sees Louis Armstrong, a racist person watches the video and sees a black person.

    With the title I thought it was going to be about to japanese dudes seeing how long they can hang from their balls or something.
