The things she likes about White men are often rooted in things she dislikes about Asian men/culture – therefore, not seeing the White man as an individual but instead distancing herself from her heritage as much as possible by dismissing it in the arms of a White man and mainstream Western culture.
Since when do we have to compare men to one another when choosing a partner?
We just wait around until a guy asks us out, and then we decide if we’re going to let it happen.
Now I know that it doesn’t always happen that way, but that’s the way society has long since defined dating, and plenty of women still get asked out to this day.
But we can be a little nicer about it, not publicly put down men (or people in general) for something they can’t control, and maybe even have some tact, grace, and civility — something no amount of publicity will ever be able to give Lily May Mac.

If it doesn’t hurt, I think you’re lying, because to not be accepted for who you are as a person is pretty crushing — especially when you’re trying to get to know them since there’s some sort of attraction there. JT Tran has stories galore, both personal and from his students, where an Asian woman turned him down because of his race.
Though I didn’t want or like Bin Laden…two other men that I’d dated during my era as an actress-model in North Africa were also billionaires…of them married a Black woman, the other married a Korean. So, you see, this is the other side of the coin…one that isn’t talked about.
Luckily I went on to marry a wonderful Black Man, a marine, Simon Palacio, who during our 10 year marriage selling his own electronics to the U. Black Women may not get the hoodrat athletes and rappers.
