My friend Elliott Chen interviews Asian Americans that don’t fit into the usual stereotypes (whatever those are!):
- Arthur Chu, the Ultra-cocky Jeopardy Villain
- Shaoi, Asian Lady Tractor Trailer Mama
- Elliott himself, who lived through the murder-suicide of his mother and step-father.
Elliott’s most recent subject is Ranier, an Asian American dude that loves Black American women.
If we’re having an honest conversation, there are some interracial couplings that America is more comfortable with: Asian Women with White Men, White Women with Latino Men, Latina Women with Black Men.
And there are some that draw curious double-takes: Asian Men with White Women, for example.
And even today, there are some that elicit the moronic outrage of America’s deepest racist fears. One sad example is a Cherrios commercial that sparked angry racist comments in 2013 from idiots who could not tolerate seeing a happy interracial family on TV.
Here’s Elliot’s interview with Ranier, the Asian dude that loves Black girls.
