Tonight I was introduced to a friend of a friend, I will call her my Korean loving friend. My friend thought that we would have allot in common since we are both attracted to Asian men and are currently learning Korean. When I met her the first question she asked me was why I like Asian men. This is a weird question to me because the answer is quite clear. I am a woman that is attracted to men. I think men are sexy, Asian men are men.
While talking with her today I realized that the root of some of all of this fetishization of races in the dating scene is due to lack of exposure to people of that race. As a black woman “my Korean loving friend” has dated in and outside of her race. It seems to me that because of all of the drama/ heartache she has experienced with the men that she has dated, she has placed Korean men on a pedestal. Since there are not allot of Korean men in our area, she has not had the opportunity to date one yet and in her mind she has associated all of the qualities that she wants in a man with Korean men, Korean dramas and music has also aided in her delusions. She has clearly mixed up personality traits and race. This is very surprising because as a black woman living in American she must have experienced moments where she had been prejudged because of race, yet here she was prejudging the males of an ethnic group.
1822: Americans consume 45 grams of sugar every five days, or the amt. of sugar in a Coke can.
2012: Americans consume 756 grams of sugar every five days, or 130 POUNDS of sugar a year.
Probably why 1/3 of Americans are now obese…sugar is addictive!
NOTE: This is not to say that fruit is bad or that you should choose Cheerios over oranges. This is simply a comparison. Remember that fruit comes with fiber and loads of micronutrients that are good for you. According to studies, if you want to lose weight, it’s been shown that consuming fruits lower on the glycemic index as a part of your diet can help you shed pounds. Of course though, when it comes down to choosing between fruit or a candy bar, choose the fruit!
I saw this at the doctor’s office today and thought it was a wonderful visual of how much sugar is in our food so I decided to make a collage for you guys. Take notice and please reblog!
