Members of yakuza organization
For the yakuza it doesn´t matter were you comes from, which country or from which class of society you belongs to, you can become a member anyway. Yakuza takes care of the misfits in the society. Yakuza members can be youth that been abandoned by their parents, youths that not managed the high pressure from the school, refugees from Korea, China etc.

Their nearest boss becomes like their father and their comrades as brothers. Yakuza offers not just companionship also money, status, authority. A part of a group were you feel useful and needed. Comparing with gangs in the USA suburbs.

There is no thresholds or requirements in order to become a member. But when you are inside there are obedience to the superiors.

What other nationalities have become Yakuza? Can someone who is white, black, or any other race become a Yakuza?

There aren't many non-asians that have become Yakuza, mostly because there aren't very many non-asians in Japan. However, I know personally of one case of an American teenager living in Japan (military father) who joined the Yakuza. He caused quite the ruckus for the American military, too, so much so that when my own family moved there, we heard quite a lot about him. Just so happens that he changed his ways after being exiled back to America and is now a Catholic priest, Fr. Calloway.
