Well aside from the obvious, having brown skin (I’m talking about African-American Michael Jackson, not the hispanic one from the late 80s or the caucasian one from the mid-nineties…I’m sorry, but it’s true, Michael…God rest your soul) it doesn’t seem to me like they favor at all, not even in the slightest. However, my fourth graders thought so. I held up a picture of some Japanese celebrities and they were able to identify them quite easily. I then held up a picture of Will Smith to have a celebrity who represented a country other than Japan. Much to my dismay the kids had no clue who he was. I don’t know why I was so surprised, though, because I guess he hasn’t really done very many family type movies in recent years. So while Japanese adults probably know him, I guess the kids wouldn’t so much.
What does a group of genki fourth graders do when don’t know the answer to something? THEY GUESS!: “ドナルド Donaldo!” “オバマ O-BA-MA!” “マイケルジャクソンMikeru Jakuson. It was pretty interesting seeing the kids trying to figure it out, though.
Do these three guys favor?
