Why Guys Like Asian Girls - Anna Akana
Everyone needs to watch this video. Now.
100% on point especially about men thinking that having “yellow fever” is a compliment and we’re supposed to be flattered by it. It’s the #1 way to parade around your blatant racism.
THANK YOU. omfg This happens to me all the time at work, and I can never say anything ‘cause they’re customers and I could get in trouble if I say anything that makes them angry. Seriously, why do white guys think it’s okay to come up to me and speak in Cantonese or Mandarin or Japanese? First off, I speak neither, never mind that I study Japanese; I can speak English fluently and this is FREAKING AMERICA. Like, am I supposed to be fucking impressed you can speak a few words in Chinese or Japanese as well? I can speak your language too but you don’t see me asking around for a trophy for it, jfc.
Second, why do they think it’s necessary to tell me that their past ex-girlfriends were Asian? Why? I don’t care who you dated in the past, I really don’t. I don’t even know your fucking name, so why even tell me these kinds of things omfg. =______=
Third, why are they older white guys old enough to be my dad/grandfather and asking me personal questions about myself? Ugh. It’s even scarier when they ask if I’d like to go out to dinner with them sometime orz. T___T One time an old guy said he’d come back to my work so he could take a picture with me and I spent the rest of the month avoiding him like insane ugh…
I also get super annoyed when a random white guy (it’s ALWAYS a white guy) comes up to me and tells me how much he appreciates Asian culture and -loves- my “people’s” food, etc., and it’s always from the Chinese or Japanese culture. lmao Incredible. And seriously, what’s up with them proudly telling me about their Japanese katana collection? I don’t care, I really don’t. >____>
