Dating caucasian girl
Just something that my inquisitive mind wants to know.
My Caucasian friend (a guy) told me that if you are Caucasian, you already have a head start in the dating game and if you are a handsome Caucasian, then it is pretty much game over. I am not jealous because I believe that there is someone for everyone.
Perhaps even more so because I have been listening to the dialogue about how to make America more post-racial -- mostly as it pertains to black and white culture -- for so long that it never occurred to me that an Asian immigrant family might cry foul when their son fell in love with an all-American girl like me.
But truthfully, I was blindsided for personal reasons, too.
Even though Seung Yong's family is educated, well traveled and chose to raise their kids in the States.
And even though, more to the point, Seung Yong was a grown man. Instead, when he told me his parents would never let him be with a white girl, I stared into his eyes and smiled.
Seven years later and three half-Asian/half-Caucasian children deep, the discussion of race rarely comes up in our home.
His words shut off the alarm bells in my head and I agreed to follow him into the racially slurred forest where we would attempt to change what his parents, and so many, say in private to their kids about a mixed-race marriage.That turned out to be the most measured discussion Seung and I ever had about his family's belief that marrying me might degrade them by watering down their culture or bloodline.Because it was the only one in which I stayed silent.I don't think I took such a stance with my family because I am Joan of Arc incarnate.Rather, aside from this flaw, my parents are kind and generous people.

I couldn't yet pronounce either of his real names (Seung or Yong) and although his friends called him "Sing," I stuck with the catch phrase my girlfriends and I had coined the first time I met him because, frankly, my nickname captured his presence better.
