just a rant

i know the ppl i talk to dont have ill intentions. and it is not how it sounds. but sometimes i dont think ppl stop and think about what they say before they say it. i'm sure i do this too but this is just a rant so run with me here lol if i told you that we've broken up, unless i tell you why right after, dont ask why. bc i dont want to tell you. someone said to me after hearing that "that didnt last long" :/ really?

then i get asked this a lot: "why do you only date white guys?" or "do you only like white guys?" i think that's super weird. like if i only date chinese guys, NO ONE would ask me "why do you only date chinese guys?" i'm sure my chinese girl friends who only date chinese guys dont get asked that question. but since i'm chinese and the last few guys i dated are white, everyone asks me that whenever i get into a new relationship and the guy is white. 1. i've dated other races before. 2. i dont see what the big deal is about his race. and 3. why does it even matter, especially to you?!?!

Hehehe a common topic yet never gets old.

A question I get a lot is "what are you" or they just outright guess. What I wonder is do other asian races get that question a lot? Like if you are Chinese/Korean/Japanese, do ppl ask you if you are one or the other? I can't imagine that happening to someone that is white either. "So, what type of white ARE you?".

So that has me wondering, is it basically not that ppl wonder what you are, but what language you can speak? I don't really know that is the case either, so then is it that when you're white, you're just white and suddenly all the specifics are out the window?

I think some asians are racist towards other asians, but whites are usually not racist (generalization here...) towards other whites. Isn't that sorta weird? If Japanese and Korean people lived in the same country and spoke the same language, I wonder if they would get along even better than they do now?

And as far as I go, its really REALLY hard for me to date the same race that I am, so which races would people then ask me "do you only date this type??"

One last thing that I always find funny is that people are convinced just by looking at me that I don't speak Japanese. When I went to the Japanese supermarket, or talk to a Japanese person that can also speak English, EVEN IF I SPEAK PERFECT JAPANESE TO THEIR FACE, they will still talk back to me in English and not even realize I just spoke to them in Japanese. It happens a shockingly large amount. Must be a psychological thing.
