Asian Racism

Asian Racism

I was recently looking at some reviews on YouTube when I came across some videos that I thought….if they aren’t racist certainly come awfully close to crossing that line….with such titles are “Are Chinese Girls Easy?” and “Can Asian Men Be Sexy?” and on and on.

In one video, comedian Steve Harvey seemed to have scoffed at the concept that Asian men could be attractive in any way. Maybe he meant it another way, but it seemed like he crossed a line of good taste stating something simply racist.

Whether we have commercials of black men being stuffed into washing machines and coming out pasty white, black men scoffing at the concept of Asian men being attractive to women or attractive to the Western mindset, there’s apparent racism on both sides.

What’s Up with the Bachelorette So Far?

What’s Up with the Bachelorette So Far?

Not really sure what to make of the new Bachelorette. It’s great that you have (finally) the first African-American female in the program’s history and it’s a true shame that it took roughly a decade (?) to ensure this no-brainer.

The program (thus far) is a guilty pleasure; entertaining in the best way reality TV is known for (salaciousness, men and women salivating over each other, hints at depth) and Rachel Lindsay, the Bachelorette herself, is doing an admirable job of being level-headed and projecting warmth and sufficient empathy to maintain interest.

What do you think of the show so far?

It seems this upcoming episode(s) on 06/26/17 will feature some kind of “explosion” (and no, I’m not going to make a bad joke about what kind of “explosion” we’re likely to see since the show isn’t X-rated at this time). This is great for viewership, and we can only speculate that the “wrestler guy” will somehow “explode” on Lee, who (so far…) is manipulating kindly Kenny like a puppeteer.

Meanwhile, Lee, the master manipulator not only seems to have issued racist (or close to it? I haven’t seen the tweets myself) tweets at some point, but a former Bachelor contestant Leah Block issued comparable tweets.

So, we’re glad to finally have a black Bachelorette, and we’re waiting to see how this “landmark” season unfurls.

Black and Blond

Black and Blond

If you have read or done basic research on peoples throughout the world, you’ve probably heard stories about people with dark skin yet with very light, blond hair. It’s unusual in most countries but apparently does indeed exist, and for very logical reasons.

Here’s the video explaining this genetic trait. Let us know what you think of it and if you have more to add.
