Wanting to be a race outside of your own.
Posted 3/19/14
To all those people saying *non-Asians want to be Asain*...Come on.

Its an open secret that a lot of Asians wish they were white. They just don't want to admit it. That's why a load of them date non-Asians...Aka, whites 95% of the time. I guess as a person whose ethnicity is Asian, I am dead sick of it. "It" being the white worship - especially Asian women towards white men.

Never got and never will get the obsession and selective racism.

Yeah, I'm going to get called out for my post but let's face it folks. Truth hurts.

if i wanted to be another race it would most definetly have to be one of these

1.) LSSj God Sayain

2.) a Demi-God

3.) a god in general

4.) a divine being or a divine celestial being

something so OP i can literally protect and save the multi-verse

"Why is that, exactly?" In detail? There are easily hundreds of possibly explanations that vary from person-to-person, which I cannot hope to cover. Or want to. I'm uncomfortable with this extent of speculation. I can generalize or touch on one scenario if I want, but this kind of loaded question makes my imagination run rampant, and I wish to avoid spending hours carefully crafting an extremely long post. I'm feeling lazy; however, the bonus questions are easy enough to answer:


1) No, we shouldn't necessarily be proud. Pride in one's own heritage can become fanatical, and therefore dangerous. Also, denying the right to not be prideful can result in malice. Nevertheless, I don't feel that pride is always horrible or anything. It can be harmless and/or beneficial in moderation.

"Pride is not the opposite of shame, but its source. True humility is the only antidote to shame." - General Iroh, Avatar: The Last Airbender


2) Yes, if the reasons are, well, truly racist.


3) Online, yes. Otherwise, not that I know of.

Personally, the thought of being of another race crosses my mind every now and then, but so do a myriad of other "what if" questions. I'm just curious, and there are some benefits that come with being like someone other than myself. For example (pretty random), there's a good chance that I'd be taller if I were pure Native American, and I like the thought of having straight, black hair.

Everyone tries be a be a black dude with the popularity of rap these days. I don't wanna be any other race as I can just learn their culture and language to fit in and you don't have to be proud of your heritage. There is a constant saying in my family that once you enter America, you instantly abandon your culture and so will your 1st generation children. Also, it isn't racism as long as you don't hate your own race

BTW all the quotes everyone is using f'ing awesome.

of course. I live in a white country, so of course i want to be white. I don't believe that's "self-racism", that's being smart.


I mean if you're a tiger living in a lion's territory, would you still want to be a tiger? (That analogy is not meant to say that being a lion is more superior or being white is more superior, it's about fitting in and surviving).


Sure, the laws say equal opportunity, no racism no homophobia etc. But in reality, everyone knows this is not the case, nobody is a saint. we all have our own prejudices and biases.


if i was living in an asian country, i would want to be asian.




Here's my quote: "When you're in Rome, act like the Romans do".

I've never really had fun being black, so yes.

I'm adopted, so I didn't grow up in a black family, and I didn't grow up in an area with many black people. I was 50 percent of the black population in the first 3 schools I went to here, and the other 50 percent was my brother.

I've never really known what it's like to have a lovable family or anything like that. I work at the casino and see a lot of Chinese every day, and they are very family oriented as I've noticed. It kind of makes me jealous. Actually, most of the Asian people that go there are like that. Always seem very happy with their family. I'm sure they aren't all like that obviously, but it makes me think sometimes.

A little off topic, but being a black person who only knows how to act white puts me in a very odd place in the world. I didn't used to think that, but now that I'm older I see instances of it all the time.

I can't really say I have ever regretted or disliked my race really. I do wish some of the ethnic features from more of my backgrounds showed through a bit, I look straight up Caucasian but I am a complete mutt. My grandfather was the last that could have claimed tribal rights as it was explained to me. I wish I knew more about that part of my heritage. We have a bit of everything that isn't an Asiatic line just about. That and there isn't any Jewish as far back as we've traced it. I doubt most people would believe my claims of ancestry without seeing the documentation. I look about as white as it gets. Its not exactly that looking white bothers me, its more that if ancestry comes up in conversation it can be awkward to talk about it since I can tell many people don't really believe me. Oddly enough it has been proven that people of different races may have more in common genetically than two people from the same race. Race exists more in our heads than in our genes apparently.

You corrected this in the actual post.

But it's important that you know that "race" is exactly what it sounds like, everyone is human, separated by nationalities.

Nationalities are changeable, you could claim "Japanese" if you wanted, but that's not a true nationality.

Genetics are more similar if you compare people from a small geographical area. I.E. people from the such and such valley who have lived there for many generations. On a national level the similarities aren't there. Race is an interesting idea as it tends to be roughly based around color, except that skin tone exists on a gradient from the cold parts to the warm ones. I look way darker than the Sami people in Sweden. I don't know if I'd consider us the same race. Where do people stop being white and become black? Its kind of a fuzzy definition. Culture matters more than race, IMO. The same phenomenon exists in the far east, where even a fellow with my inexperience can generally tell the difference between Koreans and Chinese and Southeast Asians. The term Race is fuzzy and arguable. Nationality is a lot more useful.

I look like a southern barbarian, which is where most of my ancestry stems from (the Suebi). I tend to identify more with peoples who come from similar warrior cultures (which is everyone), even better if they fought the Romans (or Rome-like entities). On that note, I admire the national personality of the Japanese. I admire the determined nature of the Koreans in maintaining their independence. I admire the Chinese for the longest lasting empire ever (barring ancient Egypt), and I admire innovation from well, pretty much everyone.

Would I trade away my barbarian ancestry? No way. Mostly because I like my family. But, the modern world is an amalgam of the contributions of all. Racial superiority is a myth. Getting worked up over skin-tone lust? Okay, but don't get carried away.

I'm sorry that happened to you. Those girls are like many other African-Americans who REFUSE to let go of the past.

I live in a community where racism towards anyone who is white still resides. Yet not every African American is like this which makes it better. Some Hispanics in my community feel the same way as well. At some point in time I wanted to be mixed with many races, or live in a diverse community. I hated the high school I went to since almost everyone was down right ghetto. I wanted to be with other races other than my own and make friends with them. I envied kids who went to diverse school while I didn't. I very much support diversity and everything else along with it. I still do envy some people who are mixed with different races or know other languages. I don't hate being African-American but I do hate half of the community and love the other half. I'm a light-skinned person and years ago I was mistaken for a Hispanic chick. I had Hispanic people come up to me speaking Spanish which was funny and strange.

I mainly meant how there are people racist towards their own race yet worships another race they barely understand.


Hope this makes sense.
