In talking about BlAsian love at my author events, I often get asked has my attraction recurrently for Black women been a political statement on my part or did I just fall in love with someone who happened to be Black? My belief is that I have fallen in love with a women’s personal culture and not necessarily the culture she was born into and vice versa. I think a part of that is that I didn’t accept steretypes of Black women and vice versa – which you could say is a political statement but a subtle one at that. So, it is kind of both political statement and just plain love put together.
What do you think?
