Asian parents on interracial dating
My point is that even the most athletic, Ivy League/Oxbridge educated investment banker/management consultant, charming, confident Asian male has a significant penalty in the dating market *on aggregate*.
But that is the whole point of racism; its unjustified judgement.
And, of course, it’s why I’ll never watch another movie with Cameron “I don’t want to kiss Jay Chou” Diaz.
(Cameron, you’re on my shit list.) Why all the negativity about dating Asian men (and, in my case, Chinese men)? I think a better question is, why are they the ones thinking about dicks and beating women and ugliness?
I couldn't yet pronounce either of his real names (Seung or Yong) and although his friends called him "Sing," I stuck with the catch phrase my girlfriends and I had coined the first time I met him because, frankly, my nickname captured his presence better.
Yes, it was white privilege that blinded me to the fact I might be the bottom of the barrel on someone else's race card.
Is it the media that refuse to let Chinese men become one the next Harrison Ford or Cary Grant, that iconic sexy and strong leading man? Whatever it is, it’s obviously these people who have the problem, and not you.
The guys might be threatened by seeing you with an Asian guy, someone they always figured they could somehow “out-do” to get the attention of a girl like you.
(Trust me, it’s a really, really small town.) 😉 Look, I’ve had my share of the negativity.
That’s why I stopped tracking the phrase “Chinese men” on Twitter, and why I never hang out in Asian expat forums (home of the ubiquitous, Asian-male-hating anonymous asshole).
