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.
You know at a website called Interrace Today, we’re down with the brown, cool with my Jewish brothers and sisters, and hip with all my Asian followers.
We recently ran across a series on YouTube-land called “Divas and Cocktails,” (two things you typically don’t want to mix together and then be around, now). We’re still trying to figure the videos out.
Here we have a nice little video of some yentas (um, excuse me) reality TV sistas discussing spouses appearing on their programs.
Uh-huh, you know he did, girl!
“Whatever you have that’s not on a solid foundation is going to collapse when it’s under a miscroscope,” amen, Sister.

Gotta love YouTube. After watching the heart-breaking documentary “Dark Girls” about how prevalent self-defeating brain-washing is among black people and black women in particular, we found out it’s offering on YouTube for free, and for watching wherever and whenever you want. What if interracial and black women meetup.com groups around the world could watch this and openly discuss it? How many eyes would be opened?
It’s a powerful documentary to say the least (albeit with a tacky website full of ads for skin lightening cream ironically enough). But here is the documentary in full. Watch it, tell us what you think, get active and tell others about it. Time to stop the lies about black feminine beauty.
Having never visited Australia, I can’t really speculate on what it’s like there in terms of diversity and the openness of interracial dating and marriage. Certainly there must be some ethnic diversity there since you have aboriginal natives in the Outback who have been there for quite some time (and again I’m showing my lack of knowledge on Australia). Beautiful vistas, great location on the map, lots of global warming probably coming their way, but other than that, I honestly don’t know much about them or what to expect.
According to this link, there’s a program in Australia, or rather a network it seems called SBS. On that network there’s a regular program called Insight and the article (which is linked to) we read is referring to an episode of the Insight program that discusses interracial dating and interracial marriage in Australia.
Since it’s not on YouTube or Vimeo (that we can find), we can’t copy and paste it into this space but if you’d like to watch this Aussie show and let us know what you think of it, and how “insight” differs from US perceptions of interracial dating and interracial marriage, please do so. We’d love to hear from our readers!
