This is the story of a racist myth that began with a light-hearted letter to the New England Journal of Medicine in 1968 and subsequently exploded in North American culture — in direct opposition to every shred of scientific evidence — becoming so prevalent that credulous eaters buy into it to…

Takashi Kosumi was a loving father and husband to his family.
Kind, warm, helpful, dedicated, resourceful, great listener and partner, just the greatest colleague, co-founder, teammate and friend anyone could ever hoped for.
He will be missed greatly, may he rest in peace.
Recently, Kosumi-kun met someone who had a son that really wanted to get better at basketball. Kosumi-kun immediately volunteered to help this boy and became an inspiration to him.
He was blunt in his words, but they were always kind and he really was good at teaching others.
The photos above of Kosumi-kun teaching the boy basketball and of him with his daughters were taken by the boy’s father. As for the third photo Kosumi-kun had a great smile and he was a frequent target of mine whenever I picked up a new lens or camera.
Kosumi-kun inspired me to really work hard on defense and to run a lot when playing basketball (and futsal for that matter).
He was blunt in his assessment of my basketball skills,”You’re really not that good at basketball,” but they were still words of kindness and what he said really made sense (how I can still be a net positive on the court even with my limited skills). Last year when we were playing ball, he told me,”you run a lot smarter than you used to,” I was really happy to hear those words.
I’ve got so many more stories about Kosumi-kun in me, but for now I’d just like to say,”Thank you so much. I was the luckiest and happiest guy in the world to be able to found a company and work together with you.”
