  2. Hello, Black man. I hope that you address racism in the job market and the dating scene in East Asia. Most heterosexual Black men in East Asia come back very bitter, and more informed of anti-Blackism on a global scale.

    Look up BlackInAsia. Now he was a proven homosexual in Taiwan, but he had a terrible time. Just think of how bad straight Black men have it! I’m a straight Black man and I lived in Japan. I am in contact with many Black men that put in time in Taiwan, Japan, China, Korea, and other places, and we all agree that East Asia sucks if you’re a straight, young Black man.

    • Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with me. It’s true not everyone will have a great time in Asia the obstacles are great and yes, there is racism everywhere. But first question;
      Did you or do you speak Japanese? I discovered that speaking the local language cuts down most of the racism. At least in my and other black students cases. Both African and African American . Also, to answer your YouTube question as well, no, I’m not gay.

      I had no problem in the dating scene during my visits and travels in Asia, and I don’t think think being Gay should play a part in the experience. Also, maybe our motivation for going abroad was different. I went for school, I had an internship, and generally wanted to experience the culture. Things like dating and friendship fell into place. I was fortunate to recognize slight racism but rise above it, because it stems from ignorance and lack of positive exposure. If you seem angry or agitated to someone who doesn’t know how to perceive you, you merely confirm the stereotype, and their friends stereotypes when they spread the story. Again thanks for your input, and I would be interested to hear your friends stories.
