True Love Can Scale the Great Wall of China

with one comment

Jo Gans and husband Michael

People who are interested in BF/AM couplings in real life will want to read this article on the “Black Women Deserve Better Blog”.   My good friend Jo Gans was interviewed by my other good friend Lorraine. 

Jo uprooted and moved to China a few years ago where she met and married the man of her dreams earlier this month.The article talks about how she dealt with family dissension:

 When I made the decision to date Asian men, you can imagine the flack I got.  People told me things like I was crazy, ”they” only dated their own kind, you’re too fat, or too dark, or just too strong.  I laughed because the negativity did not affect me in the least.  I reasoned that Asian is what I want and that is what I went after — and got.

Living in China as an African American woman:

I find the Chinese people a little naive about real Americans because they only know what they see on television — and that is regulated by the government here.

As silly as it sounds, most assume that Americans are mainly white.

And her overall attitude about love:

If he is worthy of your love, then love him.  This is a recipe for a happy life

An Asian Male Speaks on AM/BF IRRs

with 5 comments

Or 女孩,如果您在角落不停止中断我新闻纪录片i’m投入您少许黑亚洲后面

A friend sent these to me and I found them so funny I had to share them here.

Just want to say that the views that Kenny Woo holds are his own, but I posted them here because I thought some black women would like to hear them.

I’m not sure if AM/BF couples are on the rise since in my city the only AM/BF couple I know are me and my husband.  But I do have BF friends who have dated AM so I guess it means something.

Subtitle explanation: I used Babel Fish to translate the phrase: “Girl, if you don’t stop interrupting my documentary i’m about to put your little Black-Asian behind in the corner!”  So if instead it reads “I like to eat dinner in the bathroom” please take it up with them
