Black female interracial dating
On Monday, the last day of April 2018, Issa Rae was trending on Twitter because of what she wrote about black women and Asian men in her book three years ago. Sometime late on Saturday night, Plan A’s Five Alive tweeted a passage from in which she wrote about interracial dating disparities hurting black women and Asian men in similar ways.
The book itself is, in digital years, quite old as it was published in 2015.I saw memes about how black men were taking L after L these days.And of course, there was pushback from black men as well, saying that black women were trying to control them or that black women were being bitter because they themselves wanted approval from white men.With black women and Asian men always being the ones left out, the common musing has been, ‘Well, why don’t they just hook up with each other? my personal life is of any relevance, then yes, I’ve dated black women before, both in America and in Asia.’The passage quoted in Five Alive’s tweet eventually got picked up by Black Twitter and when I woke up on Monday morning, “Issa Rae” was trending. Once, I met a black woman in Seoul and we went on a couple of dates.
