Considering this topic appears to be a freaking huge issue within our diaspora, I thought I would post about this. The whole situation of interracial coupling is always contentious regardless of whether you are AF/WM or AM/WF. It has become that much of an issue that the 0.01% of toxic Asian men have dedicated their entire life/cause to online bash every Asian woman to tears who happen to fall in love with a white man. This has become such a huge issue that they probably can’t sleep at night without banging on about this online. And it is this same 0.01% who then turn the other cheek and praise any Asian man who is with a white woman, as though they have scored a homerun. It is quite weird because both types of relationships can be both wonderful/beautiful as well as being toxic. I think the most important thing is that we just all work on the common goal of fighting white supremacy and further empowerment of Asians everywhere, instead of this type of petty bitch fighting.
Anyways, Huffington Post has published an article about the shit that interracial couples face, all because they are in love and wish to spend their lives together. This is part of a powerful photographic series Donna Pinckley, who is a Arkansas-based photography professor, and started this project in 2014, standing up and providing a voice for interracial couples who endure so much shit and racism. This is what she said to the Huffington Post:
“I just wanted to show them that, you know, we should be treated equally,”
“It’s kind of interesting to see, with race relations the way they are, you would think that you would only hear the comments made to older couples, but I’m finding out I have a lot of young couples, too, that have had comments made to them,”
“I find that kind of disturbing. It’s not getting better.”
I have picked out some of the Asian photos and pictures for you, so here is a sample of the racist shit they face:
1. ALL SHE WANTS FROM YOU IS A GREEN CARD
2. WHAT’S WRONG WITH AMERICAN WOMEN? DO YOU NOT LIKE AMERICAN WOMEN?
3. YOU’LL NEVER BE EVER TO GIVE HER WHAT A WHITE MAN COULD
4. YOU MUST LIKE MILKY WAY
