I saw memes about how black men were taking L after L these days.And of course, there was pushback from black men as well, saying that black women were trying to control them or that black women were being bitter because they themselves wanted approval from white men.
So I think this Issa Rae passage provided some ammunition for black men to defend themselves.
We’re now seeing some very raw issues come to the surface because the social landscape has changed so much in just the past year or two.
With black women and Asian men always being the ones left out, the common musing has been, ‘Well, why don’t they just hook up with each other? my personal life is of any relevance, then yes, I’ve dated black women before, both in America and in Asia.
’The passage quoted in Five Alive’s tweet eventually got picked up by Black Twitter and when I woke up on Monday morning, “Issa Rae” was trending. Once, I met a black woman in Seoul and we went on a couple of dates.
” So I do think that Issa Rae has some very interesting thoughts on Asian men and how other POC factor into this fucked up racist social scene we’re currently living in. Why’s an “educated black woman” an intellectual match for merely an “Asian man”?
