Actually, they didn’t blink an eye, at least from my perspective.

The question is why did this passage suddenly spark a fiery debate now?

She came to a tongue-in-cheek conclusion that black women and Asian men should therefore get together.

For anyone familiar with racism in the social arena, the issues raised in Rae’s commentary are nothing new or even radical.

As a bit of background, my aunt and uncle were an interracial couple so I have a bit of knowledge about the reactions they received (and reactions my cousins received) although this was in the late 1970s/early 1980s UK so I imagine it was quite different to the scenario I'm looking at.

I've done quite a bit of research on the subject matter, but would love some first (or second) hand information from people who were alive during the 50s.

And it’s Asian men who get accused of trying to control Asian women and being resentful about their social status.

So watching the same fight in the black community is fascinating, because in terms of relative social positioning, black women are more like Asian men.

But because black women are women, they also use similar language and tactics as Asian women in framing the whole interracial dating disparity issue as feminism and women’s progress. I’ll never forget the fact that during the darker days of this whole argument within Asian America— when we didn’t have the data, studies, or even freedom to openly talk about the obvious gendered racism infecting our supposedly diverse 21st American social scene —black women were usually the outsiders who backed up Asian men online when the denialists and apologists gaslit us and talked down to us.
