So, the result of the DNA test finally came back. As I suspected, I am not a pure Chinese. The surprise is that my paternal Haplogroup they testing I have the haplogroup C, which is commonly found among Oroqens, Mongolians, and the Souix Indians of north America. This haplogroup is spread by the rise Mongol empire. I am probably a direct descendant of the great Khan himself.
My maternal haplogroup is B4a, which is found among nearly 100% of Native Americans in South West America and Northern Mexico.
As much as I dislike American culture, I knew there is a reason why I have the primal instinctive love I have for the land. Looking at the my two haplogroup halves, even though I am East Asian, the two haplogroup’s most common overlap is actually in the American Great Plains. Just something interesting I thought to share.

I recently ordered a genetics test online. I have been very curious about my own ancestry, as I read the reddit entry in my previous post. I noticed that colorism is prevelant among the Chinese(my own background) community as well. In China, dark skinned people are persecuted. I inherited my dark skin from my birth mother, and obviously having dark skin is NOT a common characteristic among the Chinese. I don’t look Chinese, and many Chinese people are surprised I can speak mandarin(might actually be that lighter skinned Asian women tend to systematically reject me). Chinese people often ask me “are you from Tibet?” or “Are you from Mongolia?” Let the test answer those questions

after reading the blog post by on why half Asians with white mother asian fathers seems to turn out better I started to think about some of my own personal experiences on “white only” Asian women, where sometimes reality and popular knowledge/stereotypes are often 180 degrees out of phase.
Stereotypes have positive image of Asian women for being feminine, nice and pleasant. Conversely the stereotype for black women is the complete opposite, where they are seen as vulgar, mean, and aggressive.However; my own personal experiences state the complete opposite. As from the blogger mentioned above, many Asian women prefer white men purely on a racial basis, they will get out of their way to hate on Asian men because they feel like they have something to prove, thus getting out of their way to be nasty as possible to Asian men. The women I have seen in their craziest, nastiest, and irrational states are Asian women(such as my stepmother after arguing with my father). In the reverse, my most pleasant experiences (in interactions with American women at least), the most laid back and the nicest people to hang out with, are black women.
My questions to Asian and Asian American men who reads this, I wonder if you guys have similar experiences?

Love isn’t colorblind and this ad is from a country where racial issues are not sensitive and PC. I was actually expecting a white European man to come out of there, which would actually made more sense.
EDIT: this add is actually based off of an Italian ad for a detergent. Love is not colorblind indeed…

Recently I’ve befriend an older lady(referred to as Ms. T) from the Woodstock generation in her 70s, whom I met from class. On our second meeting she came to me, wanting my contact info, saying we have more in common than I realize. She proceeded to invite me to her home to have tea, and asked me to train her in some internal martial arts. She treated me like a son she never had.
I asked Ms. T why she’s so eager to befriend me, she replied she simply felt a good vibe from me. it turned out throughout her life she spent with a lot of religious groups including japanese zen buddhists, orthodox christians, hasidic jews, and Suffi Muslims. she claimed she had a sense from me that i am “spiritually inclined”, that I will be a good friend.
This experience has baffled me a bit as most younger women of this generation generally have a bad vibe from me, seeing me as “creepy”, making them “uncomfortable” just by being around them, Ms. T felt the complete opposite. It is very clear that Ms. T and the modern American woman have drastically different set of values when they are appraising me. Ultimately what can we say about the culture today verses the culture from Ms. T’s generation?

Recently I am having thoughts concerning murder of Vincent Chin,which was considered one of the pivoting points in Asian American history for civil rights, where a Chinese American is murdered by 2 former Chrysler plant employees in Detroit, who lost their jobs due to “many of the layoffs in Detroit’s auto industry had been due to the increasing market share of Japanese automakers”.
This sparked a pan Asian civil rights movement because Chin, a Chinese American, was mistaken as Japanese. It got me thinking, had an unfortunate Japanese American man taken Chin’s place as the murder victim, would this tragedy spark a pan-ethnic response from the Asian American community? Probably not.
So apparently, mistaking a Chinaman for a different nationality is far worse than killing him
