Black men dating japanese john mayer dating jennifer
During and after college, I have maintained a diverse group of friends and have had the good fortune to travel to various places in Asia including a two year stint in Korea and Taiwan, as well as less extensive periods in Hong Kong, Japan, and mainland China.
Moreover, I have dated both intra- and inter-racially (with Black women among others) and was most recently in a 3 year relationship with a Black American woman (who self-identified as such).
It is a problem of mass media representation, global cultural and information flows, and a lack of autonomy for people of color (including Asians) to choose how they are portrayed and for and by whom.
The other major concern which I sometimes hear for why Black American and other women may hesitate to consider Asian men as potential partners is that they fear that Asian men are bound by culture, particularly in the form of filial piety.
I use this example not because I am trying to argue that Koreans or other Asians are in no way prejudiced all by themselves and that those biased ways of seeing things may impede an otherwise decent romantic relationship; rather, I am merely trying to illustrate a degree of complexity to this issue which I feel is oftentimes overlooked.
Granted I work with the US military so I tended to interact with a specific subculture of Americans living there.But none-the-less It was almost like, because they weren't in the states where they're behavior would be kept in check, a lot of our fellow brutha's out there were cooning it up wholesale!Obviously going out of their way to be people they were not and feeding into every negative black stereotype possible. It was like everyone fell out of a tacky low budget rap video. My name is Tim and I recently saw a Youtube video you had posted wherein you interviewed Asian men and Black American women in NYC about their thoughts regarding interracial dating and marriage.From there I found your other video to which I am responding.
It all came to a head when a girl I was dating introduced me a a couple of her Korean friends.
