Here’s one that hits close to home for a lot of families in Beijing, given the number of mixed race families in this city: Stuff Eurasian Males Like is a bitter online personal journal from an American college student who reviles his parents for bringing him into the world as a person of mixed racial heritage.
While the blogger who created the site obviously has some serious self-esteem issues, it does provide an interesting perspective to the age-old race debate, and brings up issues of concern and acceptance for those of mixed race heritage in modern day America.
The blogger, who refers to himself as "the genetic garbage of a white male and an Asian female" says that his particular racial makeup — a male who was brought up in a primarily Caucasian American environment yet feels that he is universally categorized by others as Asian — is the worst of all possible worlds:
"What a horrid existence. My genes make me an Asian male, and I’ve never been treated as anything but an asian male. I used to have brown hair and more euro features but ive mongolized with age. Occasionally people will think I’m hispanic or some weird mix. Its weird, I was brought up entirely with my dad’s relatives, and can’t even speak my mom’s native language. Basically a white boy in an asian’s body, which I think made me all the more sensitive to any racism. In the abstract, I’m not any racial purist, if we all become one big gray race, so much the better. One big rainbow. But in the reality of 2011 America, interracial relations isn’t some multicultural utopia, but based on power relations, and theres nothing more emasculating to an Asian man. I don’t even find Asian females attractive, feels to incestus to me. But obvious when white chicks at the top of the racial totem pole, see that Asian males are at the bottom- wamo!"
He goes on to say that white men who marry outside their race are failures and Asian women are betraying their race.
While the whole thing reeks of the intellectual musings of a college freshman that has just taken a sociology course for the first time, it’s riveting reading for anyone of mixed race or those who are parents of a mixed race child.
