It’s incredibly common complaint for Asian moms to say that their half Asian sons with racist, alt-right, loser white men don’t want to be Asian.
Well, after all, you didn’t want to be Asian either.
You wanted to marry “up,” and to marry a man who would make you feel like marrying was worth it. After all, you can’t marry for love.
You’re too good for that. You’re an Asian. You are calculating. You are strong. You are cold. Your world view is so incredibly nihilistic that marriage to a racist white man was your idea of “making it.”
Your son or daughter is now subject to the same racism that was being carried out by you – yes you, years ago, and now ironically you’re worried that your half-Asian son might face racism from women like you.
And he will! You’ve probably, somewhere along the line, attacked a half-Asian man, mistaking him for a full.
You did this! I’m not here to help you, only tell you what you can expect.
So as you scramble over your broken marriage, while both you and your balding husband are in a dead bedroom and both of you take out your anger on Asian men – despite your own son being bullied for being Asian (like Celeste Ng did, refusing to stop badmouthing Asian men despite raising an Asian looking son), trying to make enough money because your husband, unfortunately, is a loser who didn’t make enough money for that hot blonde he wanted – well, deal with it!
You did this, and if it was thirty years ago, you’d do it again, and again, and again. So why ask the question? You already knew the answer.
