Two major shows in 2016 now feature Eurasian / half Asian actors – both with Asian fathers

It’s curious that despite the so called eugenic lie that Asian women swear – that their white husbands will make for better children – it seems that the opposite pairing produces an inordinate amount of high flyers.

Bizarre. Sometimes I wonder (as was in my case) that during the most fundamental development years, us half-Asian males are taught, in highly socialized environments like college, that being Asian is a bad thing. And we learn this from both Asian women in our social groups – as well as from our families. This causes extreme social stunting; this can be exacerbated by a life of believing that we are superior because of our mix, but then on facing racism, debilitates us.
