Black man on Japanese train goes all-out in confirming certain stereotypes

A reader writes:

Here is a youtube video circulating in Japan that is reportedly (I do not know for sure, but it is a telling video anyway) to be dancer James “King Tight” Blackstone, accused in the death of Nicola Furlong, rampaging about a Japanese train intimidating Japanese passengers.

This scene is NOT common in Japan for the simple reason that there are very, very few blacks in the country.

“King Tight” may enjoy the railroad system in Japan, but he’s going to find that the Japanese prison system is not very supportive of his gangsta, hip-hop lifestyle, I promise you.

And he’s probably headed there: In Japan, arrest virtually equals conviction. 99.9 percent of persons initially arrested for a crime end up going to trial and 99.8 percent are convicted. Plea bargaining is not allowed. See this and this.
