From the New York Times:

Why So Many Asian-American Women Are Bleaching Their Hair Blond

By ANDREA CHENG APRIL 9, 2018

The first time I was aware of my Asianness was when I asked my mother why I wasn’t blond. I was 5, and one of only a handful of Asian-Americans living in a predominantly white suburb in Michigan.

The horror, the horror.

You ever notice how every.single.article these days is based on the premise of Too Many White People?

Of course, my story is not unique — it’s an experience that’s probably shared by most American-born Asians as we shake off our perceived otherness and strive to prove our Americanness. There’s a term for it: “perpetual foreigner.”

“We’re the group that’s always told to go back where we came from, and it’s partly because we have a very strong immigrant population, so we all get bundled in regardless of whether we’re fourth generation or first — to everyone, you look like a foreigner,” said Erin Khue Ninh, associate professor of Asian-American studies at UC Santa Barbara.

If that’s the case, the most obvious and quickest way to subscribe to Western ideals of beauty is to lighten your hair.

“I grew up in Georgia where everyone was blond haired and blue eyed, and I always had this image of myself as an Asian Barbie,” Ms. Rim said.

Note: Not everyone in Georgia was blond haired and blue eyed.

“Now it’s crazy because one-third of the Asians I see in New York or Los Angeles are blond.”

After all, there are virtually no Asians in New York or Los Angeles, so what can you expect the tiny number of Asians in Southern California to possibly do?

While Japanese celebrities have been changing their hair color as far back as the 1960s to emulate manga and anime characters, it was only a couple of years ago, on the heels of the ombré trend, that salons in this country began to see a spike in Asian clients looking to go full platinum.

This change over the last two years is because of the huge decline in the number of Asians in America in 2015 forced the handful of survivors to adopt camoflauge to fit in.

… “Maybe this is one part of unlocking the standards we’ve been imprisoned by,” Ms. Lee said. “It may seem like a silly, frivolous act, an act of vanity, but Asians and Asian-Americans have a history of being marginalized and ignored, so whatever the political statement is, maybe by having blond hair, it’s a very simple declaration: ‘Here I am. Pay attention to me. See me.’”

Seriously, a striking percentage of articles that I’ve read over the last few years are written by self-absorbed Asian-American bimbo journalists who want to write about Girly Stuff like how to get more boys to notice you by dying your hair (because that’s mostly what they think about, which is fine) … but they also feel the career need to hook their fashion effusions to the main topic of this decade: White People and Why They Should Just Go.

  2. Blond hair on non-whites generally does not look good.

    I’ve really only seen it well done with Beyonce, who avoids going overboard.

    Asian females are not an exception.

    Brunette dye jobs on Asians look good.

    I believe this is her: https://www.linkedin.com/in/andrea-cheng-79ba7834/

    https://media.licdn.com/dms/image/C5603AQGj5TNFgj66CQ/profile-displayphoto-shrink_800_800/0?e=1528498800&v=beta&t=GjHZOTuSbtEATJl4RSZxuTA7VFZ6Y5Gdl8ZoJKohqNQ

    She looks okay. She can probably get a date, but working in the fashion business I am sure she is routinely outclassed.

    It should be prohibited by federal law to publish any piece of “journalism” by a female unless the article is accompanied by an accurate, up-to-date profile portrait.

    Really? That's a matter of context, and contextualize she certainly did at her big moment of gravitas.

    Notice anything there? Every. Single. Dancer. On. That. Field. In her family's ancestral Louisiana, they have a host of terms to describe it and Spike Lee made a movie about it.

    , @Doug
    That's ridiculous. The linked photo is clearly a very attractive woman. Certainly in the top decile among all American women in her birth cohort. Even with the faces shot you can tell that she's thin and fit. She has clear skin, long healthy hair, a symmetrical face, perfect teeth, thick lips, high cheek bones, near perfect facial proportions, cute dimples, and a feminine jawline.

    100% I guarantee that she regularly turns heads corners when walking down the street, gets hit on by strangers multiple times a day, has men regularly spend $1000+ on her at clubs, gets hundred of Tinder matches a week, and probably has at least a dozen "platonic guy friends" who would cut off their pinky to date her.

    Lots of Japanese girls dye their hair brown, which means bleach first then dye in a lot of cases.
    It's "kawaii", e.g., cute.

    When I was chasing them, the three color look was "popular", in that they would be brown with blonde on top with black roots showing. Debbie Harry, who often had an inch or so of brown roots in back, was a colossal style icon to these Japanese girls and still is. Since I was one of the few flyover American men who even knew who she was they were impressed. "You look like an oriental Debbie Harry" was a line that got me laid more than once, or twice: they loved it.

    Disagree. I've dated Asian girls who have significantly lightened their hair. Some looked good that way, some didn't (I advised the ones who didn't to go back to their natural color).

    Like a lot of grooming and fashion choices it's individual both in terms of who can carry off what, and the personal preferences of the viewer.

    Personally, i think a lot of Asian girls--and dark haired white girls for that matter--can look pretty nice with a little bit of red blended in to move to a deep auburn. But that's just me. (The good thing about hair color and hair cuts is ... not permanent.)

    Beyond that there's a general rule: Cute girls can get away with a lot of goofy looks and still look cute. (Nature ain't fair.)

    Having studied for some years in some of the colder places in America, I was puzzled by seeing young women on university campuses with exposed midriffs in -20 degree weather. The only reasonable hypothesis I could come up with is that stupidity is, apparently, attractive.
    , @Buffalo Joe
    Reg, I find most Asian women to be attractive and yet I have never dated one, not a lot of Asian women hanging out at Buffalo party bars in my youth. Blonde hair aside, I noticed some Asian women favor breast enhancement which really takes away from their natural petite figure. But hey, who am I to judge.

    Diversity Means Less White People

    The push for more so-called “diversity” is an attack on the European Christian ancestral core of the United States.

    When they say they want more “diversity,” what they mean is they want to reduce the number of White people.

    It's more that they want to reduce/eliminate the white men. When I lost my job over 25 years ago, it became obvious management was trying to clear out the white guys, so they could promote womyn and minorities into the manager and best paying jobs.

    All of this was to be able to defend themselves in court when womyn/minorities sued because the percentage of managers/best jobs didn't match the local population.

    The white womyn they'll keep around because they're womyn and everybody wants to do them....especially the NAM's....

  6. They aren’t blonde, they color their hair blonde. There’s a difference. Some color it day-glo of every shade. Women have gotten to where whatever phony adornment they apply makes them that adornment. As if. We aren’t fooled, my Asian slutties. The eyes, it’s the eyes that give them away every time. Oh and the Georgia thing doesn’t cover it because Asian chicks all over the Orient are blonde now. Asian chicks just hate being Asian chicks, except where it might bring privilege. Lame-assed men want to be women because THAT is where THEIR privilege is, trannyism. Black women used to attempt to ‘pass’ for White, because that’s where the privilege WAS. Now, they’re Black, all Black, Black all day. Because, that’s where the privilege is. When we were murdering the Indians, Eliz Warren wouldn’t have claimed Squaw. These days she does, because that’s where her freebies in college and jobs were. Women will bend themselves into a pretzel if that’s where the goodies, the privilege are.. And the rest of you?

    Check your privilege.

  7. Is it too much to ask that professional writers stop gazing at their own navels long enough to get a semi-accurate picture of reality? If you go to Japan or Taiwan and the first thing you’ll notice is just how many young women dye their hair blond (or, more commonly, a sort of light brown color). This trend didn’t originate in the US; it originated in countries with insignificant minorities of natural blondes.

  11. When I was in the Far East in the late 80s and early 90s, in Japan and Korea for sure, women who dyed their hair blond were whores trying to attract the attention of men.

    Then in law school, I noticed Asian women dying their hair blond wanted the attention of men, usually in the senior year of their English or Art History degree when they realized getting married to a lawyer or dental student was more viable.

    Now there are even more professional Asian women with dyed blond hair…usually women about to hit the wall on their fertility…

  12. All my life I’ve sort of been confused by the obsession of non-whites with blonde hair, like blonde hair is a symbol of whiteness, because most white people aren’t even blonde, at least all the places I’ve lived in the USA. And then there is the common talk, among whites who are not blonde, about how blondes are dummies and connecting Nazi racism to blonde hair. When I was a kid it was normal for people to say “The Nazis only liked people who had blonde hair,” but whenever I saw Hitler on TV, he didn’t look blonde to me. Blonde hair really seems to drive people who are not blonde a little crazy.

    I've never heard anyone in real life (i.e., who wasn't either a Jewish stand-up comic or a character in a film/tv show) say that blond people are dumb. Why? Because stereotypes are stylized depictions of reality, and blond people in real life are not dumb.

  14. Democracy dies in darkness. Cutting yourself off from the legacy media means missing out on this kind of incisive commentary.
    Meanwhile at 4chan a Croat posted that he had the transcript of Mattis sending the go order to the missile cruiser Donald Cook off Tartus (unconfirmed by the way; it should be checkable because the Navy publishes the general location of most of their ships, but I forget the url). Transcript follows.

    The Duty Officer asked General Mattis to confirm the fact that he *had* issued the go code, and he said, “Yes gentlemen, they are on their way in, and no one can bring them back. For the sake of our country, and our way of life, I suggest you get the rest of AFGSC in after them. Otherwise, we will be totally destroyed by the Red retaliation. My goys will give you the best kind of start, 1400 megatons worth, and you sure as hell won’t stop them now, so let’s get going, there’s no other choice. God willing, Israel will prevail, in peace and freedom from fear, and in true health, through the purity and essence of his natural… tweets. Goodspeed to you all” and he hung up.

    I don't think it's because of the Dutch.

    My mother (100% East Asian) has naturally dark auburn hair. She was teased about it when she was young, so she dyed it black all her life. Perhaps because of her genes, I have copper tones to my hair, and my facial/body hair is even more reddish. One of my (half Asian) children has full-on red hair (she also has full-on green eyes and is strikingly beautiful).

    My genetics test came out 99.5% East Asian (and 0.5% Southeast Asian) per 23andme, but it did come out as several times more likely to have lighter eyes and hair color than "average" East Asian on 23andme testing pool.

    Someone on Razib Khan's blog claimed that this was due to East Asian Neanderthal genes, but I have not seen anything to corroborate it.

    When I was overseas for a stretch in the greater Middle East, I grew a full beard and my buddies were quite surprised to see the copper color and remarked that, with sunglasses on, I looked like a local.

    I've noticed a lot of young blondes dye their hair black. I think it is because they know it will soon turn brown, as usually happens in adulthood.

    I don't agree on the blue or green thing. True, many are ugly. But I recall one who was quite attractive, and I think knew it. It is a signaling device. Extroversion, politics, or promiscuity. Something like that.

    Yes this was my experience as well in Canada. They either are doing their own version of a feminist blowhard with unnatural hair dye color, or they are trying to do it because they think it will attract certain guys which it generally doesn't because it looks very weirdly unnatural on anyone who isn't from a background where blonde hair is natural.

    There is hardly any immigration from Japan. That from Korea is declining drastically. Even Chinese immigration is likely to decline significantly in the future.

    The vast majority of East Asians is not emigrating. Don't generalize about all of them based on a very small fraction that emigrates to the West.

    Like, I suspect, most people here, I am far, far, far from a fashion expert. Still, the question of why Western fashions are popular among East Asians is an interesting one.

    It's easy to assume that it's because the West culturally dominates the world. But the reality is a bit different (newsflash: it dominates less and less every year). Young people everywhere want to look cool, different, and sexy. But the attraction is very superficial.

    This is how, in the white world, black fashions have long spread like wildfire. But that doesn't mean white people want to be black, or feel that black culture is superior. They just like to adopt some of the many fun, cool, sexy styles and innovations of black people.

    Similarly, many East Asians will adopt styles from the West. But it doesn't mean they think Western culture is somehow superior. They don't want to be white, they just want to be cool.

    Someone who wears a leopard fur coat doesn't want to be a leopard. They just think leopards are beautiful and can make them look cool. Someone who dresses like a doll doesn't want to be a doll or a child, just attractive.

    What she should have said is "I grew up in Georgia, where everyone--meaning the white girls dating the boys i was interested in--was blond haired and blue eyed."

    Funny that her pretty casual Asian racism--dismissing the 3 million black people of Georgia as not even registering to her as people--didn't even register with the NYT editors either. I'm pretty sure that would have caught some serious flack from a white gal. But as long as it's non white-gentile bashing blonds, it somehow just seems solid. Georgia's blacks can disappear into the ether or guys can be kneeling down in broken glass for sloppy 1st, 2nd, 3rds ... it's all good if they're whacking those blonds.

  19. All funny comments aside (for the moment), is it too much to ask that these people make an effort to see what happens when the shoe is on the other foot (if not bound up, that is)?

    Try being a white guy in a far-off area of China and see if you fit in. I don’t mean just stares now and then, but groups of people just standing around laughing and making comments. They can be a damn rude bunch. I have pretty thick skin, but I found myself saying pretty loudly “hey, be all proud of your 5,000 year history, ya dumb fucks, but at least we got over shitting in the damn road where I come from.!”

    That shut them up, but luckily they didn’t understand what I said. It just shut ‘em up because they found it weird to see somewhat speak of foreign language, I guess.

    What I’m getting at is that looks are looks, and people naturally see the unusual differences. Until being good friends, you may always feel weird somewhat around a crowd of “others”, but it’s best not to be so sensitive. It really helps when people are not so rude, you know … have a little lot of tolerance like Americans.

    What does she suggest a westerner who lives in China do, get an eye-slant? Girls will be girls, though, I guess.

    I've been there, dude -- and then try standing tall at 6' 5" in addition to being white and having blonde-ish hair. Even here in Hong Kong I still occasionally catch people talking behind my back. If I had set my microaggression receptors at even 1% of the sensitivity level at which Ms Cheng has calibrated hers, I'd have burned out two decades ago.

    Going for the blondie look isn't that common here. You do see it once in a while, although rarely on a middle-class or above girl. You see more attempts to achieve highlights, which must be pretty expensive and complicated to execute, since it seems to involve lightening the general hair color to medium or dark brown, and then working in the even lighter points.

    A disturbing trend here is girls dying their hair garish blue or green or pink. There's a girl in my office who's got a kind of off-aqua color going right now. Idiotic tattoos, long shunned here, have also become more common, on both sexes. It's sad to see.

    Is it too much to ask that professional writers stop gazing at their own navels long enough to get a semi-accurate picture of reality? If you go to Japan or Taiwan and the first thing you'll notice is just how many young women dye their hair blond (or, more commonly, a sort of light brown color). This trend didn't originate in the US; it originated in countries with insignificant minorities of natural blondes.

    Logic Dude. Check your mansplainin’.

    Asian girls look really stupid with dyed hair. Maybe that's the point... it's like chewing gum. Lowers the apparent IQ, thus scaring away fewer boys.

    Lots of Japanese girls dye their hair brown, which means bleach first then dye in a lot of cases.
    It’s “kawaii”, e.g., cute.

    When I was chasing them, the three color look was “popular”, in that they would be brown with blonde on top with black roots showing. Debbie Harry, who often had an inch or so of brown roots in back, was a colossal style icon to these Japanese girls and still is. Since I was one of the few flyover American men who even knew who she was they were impressed. “You look like an oriental Debbie Harry” was a line that got me laid more than once, or twice: they loved it.

    All my life I’ve sort of been confused by the obsession of non-whites with blonde hair, like blonde hair is a symbol of whiteness, because most white people aren’t even blonde, at least all the places I’ve lived in the USA. And then there is the common talk, among whites who are not blonde, about how blondes are dummies and connecting Nazi racism to blonde hair. When I was a kid it was normal for people to say “The Nazis only liked people who had blonde hair,” but whenever I saw Hitler on TV, he didn’t look blonde to me. Blonde hair really seems to drive people who are not blonde a little crazy.

    And then there is the common talk, among whites who are not blonde, about how blondes are dummies

    I’ve never heard anyone in real life (i.e., who wasn’t either a Jewish stand-up comic or a character in a film/tv show) say that blond people are dumb. Why? Because stereotypes are stylized depictions of reality, and blond people in real life are not dumb.

    It’s not just hair these days:

    http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/health/penis-bleaching-bigger-article-1.3737468

    Men in Thailand are lightening up.

    About 100 men a month are going to Lelux Hospital in Bangkok to have their penises bleached in a $650 five-session laser-whitening treatment, AFP reports.

    https://www.cosmopolitan.com/health-fitness/advice/a3634/anal-bleaching-trend/

    While it’s completely normal for the skin around the anus to be darker than the surrounding skin due to genetics or everyday friction, according to Dr. Rabia De Latour, M.D., a gastroenterologist at New York University’s Langone Medical Center, some women want to lighten the area. Here’s everything you need to know about anal bleaching:
    1. Porn popularized the anal bleaching trend, which is still going strong.

    It first gained traction in the early aughts after adult film actress Tabitha Stevens had her anus bleached on the unscripted series Dr. 90210 to look more pleasant on camera. Around the same time, U.S. search volume on the procedure peaked, according to Google Trends data. Several years later, Kourtney Kardashian revealed she’d tried anal bleaching during a 2010 episode of Kourtney and Kim Take Miami, and online queries for at-home anal bleaching products surged.

    Anecdotally, people continue to show interest in lightening the intimate area: “It’s the treatment people ask us about the most,” says licensed aesthetician Graceanne Svendsen, who manages Shafer Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in New York City, which receives up to 10 anal bleaching inquiries a week.

    “We’ve noticed this is increasingly becoming a group activity,” says Jamie Sherrill, R.N., owner of Beauty Park Medical Spa in Los Angeles and Abu Dhabi, adding that she’s even treated bachelorette parties.

    I advise (or would advise, should anyone ask) all girls to go back to their natural hair color. It evolved along with all their other features. Together. (Kind of like children and fathers.)

    You'd think this would be less of an issue with white girls, who can come in four different hair hues. But often the tint just doesn't go with the complexion. And I look at the roots, and, yes, they're different.

    However, colors like blue and orange are less offensive to me, because they are so obviously fake that no deception is involved.

    In fact, blue and orange would appeal to Mets fans, wouldn't it? (A Giants-Dodgers hybrid itself.) But I can't find any examples of this online.

    Why is plastic surgery and hair dyeing big in Asia itself?

    Why are Asians getting names like Justin, Frank, Amy, Andrea, Jackie, Wesley, Cindy, Caspian(???), Alvin, etc?

    Why are Asians getting names like Justin, Frank, Amy, Andrea, Jackie, Wesley, Cindy, Caspian(???), Alvin, etc?

    Try to keep up, dude. Those names are so 1980′s. Try Benson, Connor, Tyler, Madison, Smith, Caid, for starters. Yes, I DO mean for first names. It’s a 10-year old trend, that must have started from a book. See, women all read the same books about child-raising, all over the world, since we are all global and shit now.

    How many times have you heard a Mom tell the kid about “making the wrong choice.”? They’ll say that about everything. It all comes from one book somewhere that was promoted by Okra or Dr. Phil. Not a lot of creativity is involved, yet these MILFS somehow always seem to get a pass …

    There’s a homo factor.

    Homos love artifice, fantasy, camp, and make-believe.

    Michael Jackson was a closet-homo(for sure) and lived the fantasy of being like a white woman.

    Homos have taken over globo-fashion and idolatry. In this globo-age, they’ve taken over much of Japanese, South Korean, and Hong Kong fashion. They feel no sense of nationality or humanism. It’s all fantasy of make-believe. As Asian globalized, it has lost a sense of national identity and ancestry. Its’ all futurism of fantasy, like in 2046 the dumb movie.

    This began with the Japanese but has spread to other parts of Asia.

    There was a time when Asians would have felt a bit ashamed to such trans-racial imitators but globalism is now such a big thing. Japan’s main product is anime, manga, and video games, all of which feature ‘Aryan’-ish characters. South Korea’s main cultural product is K-pop or Gay-Pop that fetishizes trans-racial homo fantasies.

    This is what happens when a people lose nationalism and humanism. It’s globalism and homo-fantasism.

    Thanks to homo sensibility, the European caste of warriors, the aristos, went from tough hardy men to a bunch of tootsers with powdered wigs and painted faces.

    But give credit where it’s due. Ludwig II made Wagner’s works and Bayreuth possible.

    There is a small number of Koreans who have natural reddish hair, as a result of taking in a Dutch shipwreck victim a long time ago.

    I don’t think it’s because of the Dutch.

    My mother (100% East Asian) has naturally dark auburn hair. She was teased about it when she was young, so she dyed it black all her life. Perhaps because of her genes, I have copper tones to my hair, and my facial/body hair is even more reddish. One of my (half Asian) children has full-on red hair (she also has full-on green eyes and is strikingly beautiful).

    My genetics test came out 99.5% East Asian (and 0.5% Southeast Asian) per 23andme, but it did come out as several times more likely to have lighter eyes and hair color than “average” East Asian on 23andme testing pool.

    Someone on Razib Khan’s blog claimed that this was due to East Asian Neanderthal genes, but I have not seen anything to corroborate it.

    When I was overseas for a stretch in the greater Middle East, I grew a full beard and my buddies were quite surprised to see the copper color and remarked that, with sunglasses on, I looked like a local.

We further discovered that all of the putative Neanderthal introgressive haplotypes carry the Val92Met variant, a loss-of-function variant in MC1R that is associated with multiple dermatological traits including skin color and photoaging. Frequency of this Neanderthal introgression is low in Europeans (∼5%), moderate in continental East Asians (∼30%), and high in Taiwanese aborigines (60–70%). ... we found that the almost all of the derived alleles at the Val92Met variant of MC1R (rs2228479*A) in the human gene pool are carried by the putative introgressive haplotypes. As the Val92Met variant is reported associated with multiple dermatological traits including skin color and photoaging, we speculate that this Neanderthal introgression ... may have played an important role in the local adaptation of modern Eurasians to sunlight intensity. ... 59 Neanderthal AIMs were identified within the MC1R gene and its left and right 100-kb flanking regions. It was observed that a number of non-African haplotypes carry segments with Neanderthal ancestry, implicating the presence of Neanderthal introgression encompassing MC1R.

     

    The Altai region is on the extreme Chinese north-west area bordering with Russia and Mongolia. The second oldest and the longest imperial Chinese Zhou dynasty (1050–249 BCE, lasted 801 years) formed by the alliance of the Ji and Jiang people from areas close to the Altai region and most of the Chinese surnames originated from that dynasty. The word 'Jiang' is used to describe people with red hair. But red hair gene is recessive and the effects are often negated by the black hair gene. Still statistically the children of European-Chinese couples 1/7 will have natural red or blonde hairs. The rarest I've seen is a AsianIndian-Chinese couple both have black hair but the young children have blonde hair.

    From Ding's supp data for rs2228479*A,

    Pop %AlleleA %GenoAG %GenoAA
    Chinese 30.23 60.47 0
    Korean 19.12 26.47 5.88
    Laotian 34.48 51.72 8.62
    Cambodian 16.67 16.67 8.33

    It is interesting that out of 43 Chinese sample there is no GenoAA. Yet 2/34 Korean sample have genoAA. There seems to be more admixture in Chinese.

    There is hardly any immigration from Japan. That from Korea is declining drastically. Even Chinese immigration is likely to decline significantly in the future.

    The vast majority of East Asians is not emigrating. Don’t generalize about all of them based on a very small fraction that emigrates to the West.

    I think Asian hair in general is pretty nice. Thick, straight, and with a sheen.

    I wouldn't say Asians resent Euro coloration. Not base on anime. It certainly enters into the rhetoric of a lot of Jews though, in a way that would not be tolerated among whites. I mean, imagine someone saying "hook-noses." Not all whites are blond, but saying blond-haired and blue-eyed, or Swede, etc. in a negative way is clearly a proxy attack on all whites.

    Curious how Jews don't normally attack redheads to the same degree, but JJ seemed to in "The Force Awakens." I think they usually like reds for diversity shots.

I would not move to China and then complain about too many Chinese and how alienating it is. But this girl didn’t make that choice. As a result of her parents’ choice she finds herself with a “native” culture that feels alien to her.

  60. Asian SJWs are hard to take seriously. Of course, all SJWs are hard to take seriously – but that’s especially the case with Asians.

    I say this because I know that Asians are unapologetically nationalistic and majoritarian in countries where they’re the majority; and no, don’t try to claim that countries such as Singapore and/or Malaysia are tolerant and multicultural in the same sense as the United States.

    Therefore, it’s abundantly clear that they’re using social justice as a cover to advance their tribal interests. White people shouldn’t fall for it.

    Yeah, no. I've made this point before: There's a reason for the old adage that a woman wants a man who's Tall, Dark and Handsome. You'll notice the order: Tall first, then dark, then handsome. Now, the dark, and even, in a few cases, the handsome are somewhat negotiable, PARTICULARLY if the target is both rich and powerful. But not tall? No. Not happening.

    Have you looked at the sorts of men that are mass-immigrating from South of the border? They are low-IQ, rather greasy, gardeners and day-laborers. To be sure, they're dark, but they are not handsome and CERTAINLY not rich and powerful. But also -- and most crucially -- these fellas are like 5 feet 5 inches. In short, they're short.

    Did I mention they're short?

    What gal wants a greasy, low status Squatamalan who's short? PFFF. Your theory is SILLY.

    The women who support mass immigration are single women who are self-absorbed and stupid, vapidly looking for Social Headpats for Correct Thinking. Married White women voted for Trump.

    Warning sign: A lot of Asian women dye their hair blonde for the same reason white women dye their hair blue or green. They have some sort kind of self-esteem issue, usually related to how they think men perceive them.

    A survey in Japan showed that both men and women found blonde hair to be uglier than natural hair, but some of the women admit they do it intentionally to repel men.

    I’ve noticed a lot of young blondes dye their hair black. I think it is because they know it will soon turn brown, as usually happens in adulthood.

    I don’t agree on the blue or green thing. True, many are ugly. But I recall one who was quite attractive, and I think knew it. It is a signaling device. Extroversion, politics, or promiscuity. Something like that.

    I'd imagine blond white girls who dye their hair dark are trying to look more bohemian and register their disapproval of the Valley/Essex girl look. The most obvious example would be goth girls into alternative fashion and rock music. Dying your hair from dark to blonde indicates mainstream bimbo in indie circles.

    Unnatural hair colours like pink and blue seem to be an anarchist/leftist thing. Anarchists tend to have loud eclectic aesthetics, like wearing a floral dress with work boots, and these aesthetics clash with those of conservatives who tend to prefer coordinated aesthetics. Some leftist women with oddly coloured hair and jarring clothing choices may get off on the idea they are repelling conservative guys, but their aesthetic taste is probably a natural expression of their personalities.

    I’ve been there, dude — and then try standing tall at 6′ 5″ in addition to being white and having blonde-ish hair. Even here in Hong Kong I still occasionally catch people talking behind my back. If I had set my microaggression receptors at even 1% of the sensitivity level at which Ms Cheng has calibrated hers, I’d have burned out two decades ago.

    Going for the blondie look isn’t that common here. You do see it once in a while, although rarely on a middle-class or above girl. You see more attempts to achieve highlights, which must be pretty expensive and complicated to execute, since it seems to involve lightening the general hair color to medium or dark brown, and then working in the even lighter points.

    A disturbing trend here is girls dying their hair garish blue or green or pink. There’s a girl in my office who’s got a kind of off-aqua color going right now. Idiotic tattoos, long shunned here, have also become more common, on both sexes. It’s sad to see.

  71. Thanks for this article, Steve. It may at first blush seem a petty point to notice what colour an Asian bimbo, (or a bimbo of any other race), chooses to dye their hair but there is a telling point at its root. (Please forgive the pun).

    Personally, I don’t believe that blonde or even brown hair suits the Asian skin-complexion.
    And the lighter the shading the less flattering it seems to me. I happen to side with Roger the politically-incorrect alien in “American Dad”, who when told he was wrong on something replied, or words to the effect: “No, I was merely mistaken…a blonde Asian – now that’s wrong.”

    Nevertheless, if Asians want to dye their hair unflattering hues or even undergo surgery to round their eyes that’s their business and doesn’t concern me.

    What is my business and what I strongly resent is the open double-standard attached to such things. I recall reading, a while back, of some white liberal Hollywood celebrity, (and aren’t they all -it may have been Katy Perry or one of her imitators), attending some kind of society “do” that had as its theme celebrating Asian culture.

    She was quite widely attacked by other so-called liberals as a cultural appropriator when she dared to show up wearing a kimono-inspired dress and/or small hair clamps that resembled chopsticks. It looked quite OK to my untrained eyes and seemed to accord with the theme of the evening which was to turn the spotlight on things Asian.

    Said bimbo rapidly wilted under the criticism and apologised profusely for her “cultural insensitivity” but it seemed to me that her critics were nothing more than virtue-signalling hypocrites because they never condemn Asian girls for bleaching their hair and rounding their eyes.

    That silence is important because it’s not like blonde hair occurs naturally among Asians or any other ethnic group save for Europeans and their descendants who built, maintain and still largely populate the English-speaking world.

    Why this silence? Why is it a deadly sin deserving of ostracism for whites to occasionally wear Asian inspired high-fashion garb but perfectly OK for millions of girl of other races to alter their very bodies to ape features that are uniquely white?

    In the end, nothing much turns on it alone – but the double standard speaks volumes about the agenda of leftist idealogues. Thanks for airing it here.

    “We’re the group that’s always told to go back where we came from…” said Erin Khue Ninh, associate professor of Asian-American studies at UC Santa Barbara.

    Always!! Mmmmmm, I’m betting she has never been told that even once.

    “Maybe this is one part of unlocking the standards we’ve been imprisoned by,” Ms. Lee said.

    I guess we don’t need jails for Asians then. We can just imprison them with “standards.”

    If you looked at the boy- or girl-bands, though, they pretty much run the gamut on the colors/shades.
     
    Red's pretty popular:

    Dyed red generally looks quite horrible, IMO. It has always surprised me how many movies they make with obviously fake redheads. Only a small number of blondes can pull it off.

    When it comes to punk red, I think it is better when the bottom of the hair is dyed, and the rest left natural.

  76. Japanese young ladies from more conservative households are said to still want to be married by 25. Those who are unattached at that age face shame. My American friend in Tokyo noticed that issue and commented that the ladies were more open to interaction around that age. There is a Wall concept in many cultures.

    Why are Asians getting names like Justin, Frank, Amy, Andrea, Jackie, Wesley, Cindy, Caspian(???), Alvin, etc?

    Why are they leaving their own nations to live as minorities in white-made nations? Are they white-preferist? Do they prefer white world to their own?

    On the one hand, it’s fundamentally absurd to immigrate to a new country and then complain about the people that live there. I would not move to China and then complain about too many Chinese and how alienating it is. But this girl didn’t make that choice. As a result of her parents’ choice she finds herself with a “native” culture that feels alien to her. I feel somewhat bad for people like this since it seems to cause legitimate psychological distress.

    That's true. There's a fair amount of entitled whites in Asia, some of them saying quite ridiculous things to a foreign audience. None of them are agitating locally though, as far as I know. They're not settlers either because of tight visa laws, so it's not really comparable.

    If a Chinese person lived a few years in a 99% Euro country teaching Chinese, and gibbering on Weibo in Chinese about how he wanted Westerners to change, before moving back to China, he wouldn't be a blip on anyone's radar.

    But I think it is really Indians who are the most obnoxious. In real life, I've never heard an Asian use the word "racist", except pols. Meanwhile, I've heard Indians basically say "You can't have a culture anymore. Everything has got to be propaganda for more diversity. Because my parents invaded here. Oh, yeah, and whites were lucky. Everything they have came from colonialism. And Indians were unlucky to have whites unite India, build trains, and then leave. Therefore we have infinite right to invade white countries and turn them Indian."

    Specialization:
    Asian American and comparative ethnic literatures, literary studies, women’s literature, feminist studies, cultural studies, family and intergenerational conflict, power and subject formation, gender and the embodied subject, mental health, sexual violence

    Wow, look as us wicked racist Americans, only letting her get a PhD from Berkeley. If she were a white male she’d have gone to Harvard, immediately.

    Her research and teaching explore the subtleties of power, harm, and subject formation, whether in the contexts of terror and war, of family and immigration, or of girlhood and beauty.

    In other words, she writes about herself and her obsessions. That’s scholarship my friends!

    Her monograph, Ingratitude: The Debt-Bound Daughter in Asian American Literature (NYU), won the Literary Studies Book Award from the Association for Asian American Studies in 2013. The book takes a long look at intergenerational conflict, that weary specter of second-generation writing, but under the harsh new lights of post-structuralist and cultural-materialist analyses. Ninh argues that the immigrant family unit is structured by an economic and political investment in the American capitalist system, and driven by its dedication profitably to raise the model minority. She argues, too, the grievous costs of this capitalist venture: a daughterly subjectivity trained by masochism into self-destruction.

    Try being a white guy in a far-off area of China and see if you fit in. I don’t mean just stares now and then, but groups of people just standing around laughing and making comments. They can be a damn rude bunch.

     

    I've been there, dude -- and then try standing tall at 6' 5" in addition to being white and having blonde-ish hair. Even here in Hong Kong I still occasionally catch people talking behind my back. If I had set my microaggression receptors at even 1% of the sensitivity level at which Ms Cheng has calibrated hers, I'd have burned out two decades ago.

    Going for the blondie look isn't that common here. You do see it once in a while, although rarely on a middle-class or above girl. You see more attempts to achieve highlights, which must be pretty expensive and complicated to execute, since it seems to involve lightening the general hair color to medium or dark brown, and then working in the even lighter points.

    A disturbing trend here is girls dying their hair garish blue or green or pink. There's a girl in my office who's got a kind of off-aqua color going right now. Idiotic tattoos, long shunned here, have also become more common, on both sexes. It's sad to see.

    I think Japan has the right idea. In a lot of schools, they ban girls dying their hair.

    In some sci-fi books people have anime type hair. I’ve wondered whether that will become common when genetic engineering comes along.

    That's the case here, too. Daughter C's school has strict rules about how the girls can wear their hair; dyeing is verboten, as is having long hair hanging loose. So you end up with a school population in which 95%+ of the girls have long straight black hair pulled back into a single ponytail.

    It's not entirely surprising that some of these girls, a few years down the road, decide they might like to try something that sets them apart from the other girls just a bit.

But now, the Korons are going out of their way to be trans-racial and reject their natural looks to look ersatz-cartoony white.

    I don't know about Grace Kelly, but the rural upper Midwest comes pretty close - lots of Scandinavian- , German-, and Dutch-descended populations. There is even a Danish town in Iowa (that is still culturally a bit Danish, with I think one Danish speaker left). Dutch towns such as Pella are also quite blondish. People tend to be a bit thick though, as in the South.

    In the upper South (with which, I am sure, you are familiar), whites tend to be Scotch-Irish or English-descended in the main and generally seem to have that British Celtic look (brown hair and blue eyes).

    Thanks for this article, Steve. It may at first blush seem a petty point to notice what colour an Asian bimbo, (or a bimbo of any other race), chooses to dye their hair but there is a telling point at its root. (Please forgive the pun).

    Personally, I don't believe that blonde or even brown hair suits the Asian skin-complexion.
    And the lighter the shading the less flattering it seems to me. I happen to side with Roger the politically-incorrect alien in "American Dad", who when told he was wrong on something replied, or words to the effect: "No, I was merely mistaken...a blonde Asian - now that's wrong."

    Nevertheless, if Asians want to dye their hair unflattering hues or even undergo surgery to round their eyes that's their business and doesn't concern me.

    What is my business and what I strongly resent is the open double-standard attached to such things. I recall reading, a while back, of some white liberal Hollywood celebrity, (and aren't they all -it may have been Katy Perry or one of her imitators), attending some kind of society "do" that had as its theme celebrating Asian culture.

    She was quite widely attacked by other so-called liberals as a cultural appropriator when she dared to show up wearing a kimono-inspired dress and/or small hair clamps that resembled chopsticks. It looked quite OK to my untrained eyes and seemed to accord with the theme of the evening which was to turn the spotlight on things Asian.

    Said bimbo rapidly wilted under the criticism and apologised profusely for her "cultural insensitivity" but it seemed to me that her critics were nothing more than virtue-signalling hypocrites because they never condemn Asian girls for bleaching their hair and rounding their eyes.

    That silence is important because it's not like blonde hair occurs naturally among Asians or any other ethnic group save for Europeans and their descendants who built, maintain and still largely populate the English-speaking world.

    Why this silence? Why is it a deadly sin deserving of ostracism for whites to occasionally wear Asian inspired high-fashion garb but perfectly OK for millions of girl of other races to alter their very bodies to ape features that are uniquely white?

    Let's be honest White women are the standard for beauty, blacks and south asians bleaching their skin, Asians dying their hair blonde and wearing colored contacts. The problem is most non white women resent White beauty, which is also a contributing factor to anti white racism.

    I think Asian hair in general is pretty nice. Thick, straight, and with a sheen.

    I wouldn’t say Asians resent Euro coloration. Not base on anime. It certainly enters into the rhetoric of a lot of Jews though, in a way that would not be tolerated among whites. I mean, imagine someone saying “hook-noses.” Not all whites are blond, but saying blond-haired and blue-eyed, or Swede, etc. in a negative way is clearly a proxy attack on all whites.

    Curious how Jews don’t normally attack redheads to the same degree, but JJ seemed to in “The Force Awakens.” I think they usually like reds for diversity shots.

    At least the writer isn’t making the ubiquitous but spurious claim that Koreans and Japanese are getting their eyelids changed to caucasian eyelids. The operation they get for futae eyelids changes them from one common Asian style to another common Asian style, from no fold to double fold. Caucasian have single fold eyelids.

    The blonde shades that you see in Japan could never be confused for caucasian blonde hair. They are a thing unto themselves. I suppose they look sort of like bleached bimbo-blonde white women, but not natural blonde white women. And the unbleached roots seem to be part of the look. Then there are the shades of blonde that edge toward anime, such as the popular ash blonde look that is never seen in nature:

    I believe you did not make up the name. What I want to know is, who made up the bit about him being a Frenchman? If you asked him, would he identify himself as a Frenchman?
    I wonder, if you did a survey of the non-Whites who make up 50% of The London population what they were, how many would call themselves English? Unfortunately I don’t think you could even conduct such a survey today without being arrested.

    I grew up in Georgia where everyone is blonde-haired and blue-eyed.
     
    Complete horseshit. I grew up in Georgia, where I had brown hair and green eyes. The overwhelming majority of people in Georgia, then as now, have brown hair. I expect most have brown eyes. Many are Negroes.

    Where are these fantastic places inhabited by all the ugly, jealous, dark people, that everyone looks like Grace Kelly? I'd have liked to have visited one when I was younger and unmarried, but, despite my having traveled more than probably all but about five percent of the world's population, I've yet to encounter even one such mythic place.

    Could this whining Oriental please point us to the Land of Nudity & Unicorns?

    It’s a place in our imagination. Sort of a reverse Wakanda.

    Not sure if it’s Valhalla, but the soundtrack is probably Wagner at any rate.

    Try being a white guy in a far-off area of China and see if you fit in. I don’t mean just stares now and then, but groups of people just standing around laughing and making comments. They can be a damn rude bunch.

     

    I've been there, dude -- and then try standing tall at 6' 5" in addition to being white and having blonde-ish hair. Even here in Hong Kong I still occasionally catch people talking behind my back. If I had set my microaggression receptors at even 1% of the sensitivity level at which Ms Cheng has calibrated hers, I'd have burned out two decades ago.

    Going for the blondie look isn't that common here. You do see it once in a while, although rarely on a middle-class or above girl. You see more attempts to achieve highlights, which must be pretty expensive and complicated to execute, since it seems to involve lightening the general hair color to medium or dark brown, and then working in the even lighter points.

    A disturbing trend here is girls dying their hair garish blue or green or pink. There's a girl in my office who's got a kind of off-aqua color going right now. Idiotic tattoos, long shunned here, have also become more common, on both sexes. It's sad to see.

    So Asian women were “marginalized” and “ignored” when their hair color was DIFFERENT from “everyone” else’s.

    Dying their hair blond is “a very simple declaration: ‘Here I am. Pay attention to me.’ ” So looking like everyone else attracts more attention, looking different is “ignored.”

    A month or two with blond and she’ll likely shift into a redhead phase. Hopefully we’ll be treated to an article about the deeper meaning of that. It really means nothing. It’s fashion.

    I never noticed this fixation on blond hair until I started reading this blog.

    As a white man I’ve never had the sense that blond hair was so special. Some men may go for the blond type, others prefer something else or have no hard preference. It’s strange that people get hung up about it. I’m sure it has to do with NAZIs somehow…everything has to do with NAZIs!

    The alienation these Asian women feel in America, to me, is proof that mass immigration isn’t such a wise idea. I don’t think getting rid of white majorities will sooth the angst. It’s just going to create angst for everyone instead of merely a small minority.

    What she should have said is “I grew up in Georgia, where everyone–meaning the white girls dating the boys i was interested in–was blond haired and blue eyed.”

    Funny that her pretty casual Asian racism–dismissing the 3 million black people of Georgia as not even registering to her as people–didn’t even register with the NYT editors either. I’m pretty sure that would have caught some serious flack from a white gal. But as long as it’s non white-gentile bashing blonds, it somehow just seems solid. Georgia’s blacks can disappear into the ether or guys can be kneeling down in broken glass for sloppy 1st, 2nd, 3rds … it’s all good if they’re whacking those blonds.

    She looks okay. She can probably get a date, but working in the fashion business I am sure she is routinely outclassed.

    It should be prohibited by federal law to publish any piece of "journalism" by a female unless the article is accompanied by an accurate, up-to-date profile portrait.

    Like a lot of grooming and fashion choices it’s individual both in terms of who can carry off what, and the personal preferences of the viewer.

    Personally, i think a lot of Asian girls–and dark haired white girls for that matter–can look pretty nice with a little bit of red blended in to move to a deep auburn. But that’s just me. (The good thing about hair color and hair cuts is … not permanent.)

    Beyond that there’s a general rule: Cute girls can get away with a lot of goofy looks and still look cute. (Nature ain’t fair.)

    There is a small number of Koreans who have natural reddish hair, as a result of taking in a Dutch shipwreck victim a long time ago.
     
    I don't think it's because of the Dutch.

    My mother (100% East Asian) has naturally dark auburn hair. She was teased about it when she was young, so she dyed it black all her life. Perhaps because of her genes, I have copper tones to my hair, and my facial/body hair is even more reddish. One of my (half Asian) children has full-on red hair (she also has full-on green eyes and is strikingly beautiful).

    My genetics test came out 99.5% East Asian (and 0.5% Southeast Asian) per 23andme, but it did come out as several times more likely to have lighter eyes and hair color than "average" East Asian on 23andme testing pool.

    Someone on Razib Khan's blog claimed that this was due to East Asian Neanderthal genes, but I have not seen anything to corroborate it.

    When I was overseas for a stretch in the greater Middle East, I grew a full beard and my buddies were quite surprised to see the copper color and remarked that, with sunglasses on, I looked like a local.

    This is one of those contexts where is legitimate to advocate for more inclusive beauty standards. Hopefully we could agree that thick dreadlocks and huge afros are out, because they imply a lack of maintenance, but there are so many traditional African hairstyles that lend themselves to a polished appearance. It's any woman's choice to spend large amounts of time and money on their hair. But why should black women torture their scalps and hair to in order to meet a rather cruel and arbitrary standard?

    Thanks for this article, Steve. It may at first blush seem a petty point to notice what colour an Asian bimbo, (or a bimbo of any other race), chooses to dye their hair but there is a telling point at its root. (Please forgive the pun).

    Personally, I don't believe that blonde or even brown hair suits the Asian skin-complexion.
    And the lighter the shading the less flattering it seems to me. I happen to side with Roger the politically-incorrect alien in "American Dad", who when told he was wrong on something replied, or words to the effect: "No, I was merely mistaken...a blonde Asian - now that's wrong."

    Nevertheless, if Asians want to dye their hair unflattering hues or even undergo surgery to round their eyes that's their business and doesn't concern me.

    What is my business and what I strongly resent is the open double-standard attached to such things. I recall reading, a while back, of some white liberal Hollywood celebrity, (and aren't they all -it may have been Katy Perry or one of her imitators), attending some kind of society "do" that had as its theme celebrating Asian culture.

    She was quite widely attacked by other so-called liberals as a cultural appropriator when she dared to show up wearing a kimono-inspired dress and/or small hair clamps that resembled chopsticks. It looked quite OK to my untrained eyes and seemed to accord with the theme of the evening which was to turn the spotlight on things Asian.

    Said bimbo rapidly wilted under the criticism and apologised profusely for her "cultural insensitivity" but it seemed to me that her critics were nothing more than virtue-signalling hypocrites because they never condemn Asian girls for bleaching their hair and rounding their eyes.

    That silence is important because it's not like blonde hair occurs naturally among Asians or any other ethnic group save for Europeans and their descendants who built, maintain and still largely populate the English-speaking world.

    Why this silence? Why is it a deadly sin deserving of ostracism for whites to occasionally wear Asian inspired high-fashion garb but perfectly OK for millions of girl of other races to alter their very bodies to ape features that are uniquely white?

    In the end, nothing much turns on it alone - but the double standard speaks volumes about the agenda of leftist idealogues. Thanks for airing it here.

    That silence is important because it’s not like blonde hair occurs naturally among Asians or any other ethnic group save for Europeans and their descendants who built, maintain and still largely populate the English-speaking world.

    Some Melanesians and Australian Aborigines have naturally blond hair. It has been discussed here before.

  121. While Japanese celebrities have been changing their hair color as far back as the 1960s…

    I’ve learned to scan these types of whiny articles about a writer’s race identity in America for the sentence that begins with the word “while.”

    That’s usually the sentence that contains the information that demolishes the premise of the article.

    A few crafty and less honest writers leave out any such evidence. But most of these race-angst writers have at least a vestige of conscience that makes them unable to resist laying out the evidence to the contrary—even if they only mention it in passing in this manner.

    This is one of those contexts where is legitimate to advocate for more inclusive beauty standards. Hopefully we could agree that thick dreadlocks and huge afros are out, because they imply a lack of maintenance, but there are so many traditional African hairstyles that lend themselves to a polished appearance. It’s any woman’s choice to spend large amounts of time and money on their hair. But why should black women torture their scalps and hair to in order to meet a rather cruel and arbitrary standard?

    Hair standards are cruel but they are not arbitrary. Like so many other things. A thing is not arbitrary because it is cruel. Beauty is ruthless.

    Warning sign: A lot of Asian women dye their hair blonde for the same reason white women dye their hair blue or green. They have some sort kind of self-esteem issue, usually related to how they think men perceive them.

    A survey in Japan showed that both men and women found blonde hair to be uglier than natural hair, but some of the women admit they do it intentionally to repel men.

    Yes this was my experience as well in Canada. They either are doing their own version of a feminist blowhard with unnatural hair dye color, or they are trying to do it because they think it will attract certain guys which it generally doesn’t because it looks very weirdly unnatural on anyone who isn’t from a background where blonde hair is natural.

    At least the writer isn't making the ubiquitous but spurious claim that Koreans and Japanese are getting their eyelids changed to caucasian eyelids. The operation they get for futae eyelids changes them from one common Asian style to another common Asian style, from no fold to double fold. Caucasian have single fold eyelids.

    The blonde shades that you see in Japan could never be confused for caucasian blonde hair. They are a thing unto themselves. I suppose they look sort of like bleached bimbo-blonde white women, but not natural blonde white women. And the unbleached roots seem to be part of the look. Then there are the shades of blonde that edge toward anime, such as the popular ash blonde look that is never seen in nature:

    There's an entire cottage industry of white expats complaining about everything in China.

    That’s true. There’s a fair amount of entitled whites in Asia, some of them saying quite ridiculous things to a foreign audience. None of them are agitating locally though, as far as I know. They’re not settlers either because of tight visa laws, so it’s not really comparable.

    If a Chinese person lived a few years in a 99% Euro country teaching Chinese, and gibbering on Weibo in Chinese about how he wanted Westerners to change, before moving back to China, he wouldn’t be a blip on anyone’s radar.

    But I think it is really Indians who are the most obnoxious. In real life, I’ve never heard an Asian use the word “racist”, except pols. Meanwhile, I’ve heard Indians basically say “You can’t have a culture anymore. Everything has got to be propaganda for more diversity. Because my parents invaded here. Oh, yeah, and whites were lucky. Everything they have came from colonialism. And Indians were unlucky to have whites unite India, build trains, and then leave. Therefore we have infinite right to invade white countries and turn them Indian.”

    Is it too much to ask that professional writers stop gazing at their own navels long enough to get a semi-accurate picture of reality? If you go to Japan or Taiwan and the first thing you'll notice is just how many young women dye their hair blond (or, more commonly, a sort of light brown color). This trend didn't originate in the US; it originated in countries with insignificant minorities of natural blondes.

    I think it is a common thing among light brown nationalities in general; I’ve seen plenty of Middle Eastern women in Europe who dye their hair dark blonde or light brown.

    A month or two with blond and she'll likely shift into a redhead phase. Hopefully we'll be treated to an article about the deeper meaning of that. It really means nothing. It's fashion.

    I never noticed this fixation on blond hair until I started reading this blog.

    As a white man I've never had the sense that blond hair was so special. Some men may go for the blond type, others prefer something else or have no hard preference. It's strange that people get hung up about it. I'm sure it has to do with NAZIs somehow...everything has to do with NAZIs!

    The alienation these Asian women feel in America, to me, is proof that mass immigration isn't such a wise idea. I don't think getting rid of white majorities will sooth the angst. It's just going to create angst for everyone instead of merely a small minority.

    Some men may go for the blond type, others prefer something else or have no hard preference.

    I doubt hair makes the top 5 of any man’s preference list re: women.

    If a Chinese person lived a few years in a 99% Euro country teaching Chinese, and gibbering on Weibo in Chinese about how he wanted Westerners to change, before moving back to China, he wouldn't be a blip on anyone's radar.

    But I think it is really Indians who are the most obnoxious. In real life, I've never heard an Asian use the word "racist", except pols. Meanwhile, I've heard Indians basically say "You can't have a culture anymore. Everything has got to be propaganda for more diversity. Because my parents invaded here. Oh, yeah, and whites were lucky. Everything they have came from colonialism. And Indians were unlucky to have whites unite India, build trains, and then leave. Therefore we have infinite right to invade white countries and turn them Indian."

    The British did some good things for India later on, but the East India Company period was brutal and economically extractive, causing famine and deindustrialization. Foreign domination also degrades and demoralizes a people.

    How many English natives fought in the military of the East India Company? Surely if they were capable of defeating the Indians on their own land and in a country months away by sea then they must have recruited 99% of their soldiers from among the Indians themselves? Between 1800 and 1950, the period when the British Empire was most involved in India, the population of India increased from 180 million to 400 million. Some famine that must have been.

    Heck, she doesn't even have to be so very well-groomed if she has smarts and a cute smile. Some of the most attractive women I know are a tad frazzled, maybe from having stayed up half the night reading a book and having rushed out the door after having slept through the alarm. And ultimately, a good man and a good woman want to make babies. At that point, something has to give. I always tell my daughter that she is quite pretty and also smart, but that someday she'll start to grey and get wrinkly.

    There is a small number of Koreans who have natural reddish hair, as a result of taking in a Dutch shipwreck victim a long time ago.
     
    I don't think it's because of the Dutch.

    My mother (100% East Asian) has naturally dark auburn hair. She was teased about it when she was young, so she dyed it black all her life. Perhaps because of her genes, I have copper tones to my hair, and my facial/body hair is even more reddish. One of my (half Asian) children has full-on red hair (she also has full-on green eyes and is strikingly beautiful).

    My genetics test came out 99.5% East Asian (and 0.5% Southeast Asian) per 23andme, but it did come out as several times more likely to have lighter eyes and hair color than "average" East Asian on 23andme testing pool.

    Someone on Razib Khan's blog claimed that this was due to East Asian Neanderthal genes, but I have not seen anything to corroborate it.

    When I was overseas for a stretch in the greater Middle East, I grew a full beard and my buddies were quite surprised to see the copper color and remarked that, with sunglasses on, I looked like a local.

    “known as Val92Met or V92M, is one of several SNPs in the MC1R gene commonly associated with red (or blond) hair and poor tanning, but note its high presence in one Asian population

    https://academic.oup.com/mbe/article/31/8/1994/2925824

    “Neanderthal Origin of the Haplotypes Carrying the Functional Variant Val92Met in the MC1R in Modern Humans”, Molecular Biology and Evolution, Published: 10 June 2014

    In this article, we present evidence of Neanderthal introgression encompassing the melanocyte-stimulating hormone receptor gene MC1R. The haplotypes from Neanderthal introgression diverged with the Altai Neanderthal 103.3 ka, which postdates the anatomically modern human–Neanderthal divergence. We further discovered that all of the putative Neanderthal introgressive haplotypes carry the Val92Met variant, a loss-of-function variant in MC1R that is associated with multiple dermatological traits including skin color and photoaging. Frequency of this Neanderthal introgression is low in Europeans (∼5%), moderate in continental East Asians (∼30%), and high in Taiwanese aborigines (60–70%). … we found that the almost all of the derived alleles at the Val92Met variant of MC1R (rs2228479*A) in the human gene pool are carried by the putative introgressive haplotypes. As the Val92Met variant is reported associated with multiple dermatological traits including skin color and photoaging, we speculate that this Neanderthal introgression … may have played an important role in the local adaptation of modern Eurasians to sunlight intensity. … 59 Neanderthal AIMs were identified within the MC1R gene and its left and right 100-kb flanking regions. It was observed that a number of non-African haplotypes carry segments with Neanderthal ancestry, implicating the presence of Neanderthal introgression encompassing MC1R.

    The Altai region is on the extreme Chinese north-west area bordering with Russia and Mongolia. The second oldest and the longest imperial Chinese Zhou dynasty (1050–249 BCE, lasted 801 years) formed by the alliance of the Ji and Jiang people from areas close to the Altai region and most of the Chinese surnames originated from that dynasty. The word ‘Jiang’ is used to describe people with red hair. But red hair gene is recessive and the effects are often negated by the black hair gene. Still statistically the children of European-Chinese couples 1/7 will have natural red or blonde hairs. The rarest I’ve seen is a AsianIndian-Chinese couple both have black hair but the young children have blonde hair.

    From Ding’s supp data for rs2228479*A,

    Pop %AlleleA %GenoAG %GenoAA
    Chinese 30.23 60.47 0
    Korean 19.12 26.47 5.88
    Laotian 34.48 51.72 8.62
    Cambodian 16.67 16.67 8.33

    It is interesting that out of 43 Chinese sample there is no GenoAA. Yet 2/34 Korean sample have genoAA. There seems to be more admixture in Chinese.

    I see this trend in action quite a bit at my university and on the subway. Indeed, I think a friend of mine was rather miffed when, after she asked me what I thought of her newly dyed blond hair, I frankly admitted that I thought her previously black hair was more attractive.

    It's funny how white people are at fault whether they're imitating non-whites or whether non-whites are imitating them. For instance, when whites adopt black street-wear fashion, colloquial slang and internet memes, that shows how terrible white people are. But when black or Asian women adopt white hair styles, that also shows how terrible white people are.

    I'm somewhat sympathetic to the tribulations of black women over hair styling, but Asian women seem to already have very attractive natural hair in many men's judgments (mine included.) (Admittedly I may simply be proximate to many men who have soi-disant "Yellow Fever" and thus be unwittingly confused by sampling bias.)

    I am hunting buddies with a guy who owns a small landscaping company (that works on my house). I ended up becoming friends with him after we chatted while he was supervising the work on my yard (funny enough that's how I became friends with my HVAC guy as well).

    He told me that East Asians are absolutely bargain-hunters ("No offense, Twinkie, but East Asians always try to get the lowest possible price." - "Hey, none taken, man. Did you give me the lowest possible price?"), but are generally polite and pleasant to deal with as customers otherwise. On the other hand, he got offended a lot with Indian clients, because they would treat and speak to him as if he were their servant! And he's a multi-generational native of the state whose family goes back to its founding and is a pretty cultured college graduate to boot.

    He was pretty astonished by how much I knew about soil and pesticides (I did farming for a bit for my in-laws), and told me that Indians seemed to know virtually nothing about gardening and landscaping, but would complain incessantly about weeds growing and grasses dying and such... all the while NOT watering their yards during the middle of the summer.

    I’d imagine blond white girls who dye their hair dark are trying to look more bohemian and register their disapproval of the Valley/Essex girl look. The most obvious example would be goth girls into alternative fashion and rock music. Dying your hair from dark to blonde indicates mainstream bimbo in indie circles.

    Unnatural hair colours like pink and blue seem to be an anarchist/leftist thing. Anarchists tend to have loud eclectic aesthetics, like wearing a floral dress with work boots, and these aesthetics clash with those of conservatives who tend to prefer coordinated aesthetics. Some leftist women with oddly coloured hair and jarring clothing choices may get off on the idea they are repelling conservative guys, but their aesthetic taste is probably a natural expression of their personalities.

    If anyone who is not a black woman knew what it takes to get stereotypically black hair to look good for professional standards
     
    This is one of those contexts where is legitimate to advocate for more inclusive beauty standards. Hopefully we could agree that thick dreadlocks and huge afros are out, because they imply a lack of maintenance, but there are so many traditional African hairstyles that lend themselves to a polished appearance. It's any woman's choice to spend large amounts of time and money on their hair. But why should black women torture their scalps and hair to in order to meet a rather cruel and arbitrary standard?

There are various African hair braids, buns, and such that lend themselves well to this sort of appearance, that don't lead to irritated skin, major hair breakage, and bald spots. Calls for "diversity and inclusiveness" are legitimate here.

    If Asian women feel self-conscious about their small eyes, horse tail hair, flat noses, round faces, and dark skin, they should blame their ancestors, not white people.

    No, it’s white people’s fault for being so handsome/beautiful and making Asians feel bad.
    And it’s white people’s fault for creating successful, attractive societies.
    White people’s fault for forcing Japanese students to study English.
    And white people made Disney so cute and fun.

    I’m not really getting a hater vibe from the Japanese. They seem very comfortable in their own skin no matter where you meet them. Public white hating is more of a Chinese and Korean thing, but in private the women brag about how much more white they look than their other asian friends.

    Is that the case over in Japan?


    When I was in the Philippines, perhaps the most Westernized country in Asia, I did notice that the better-looking White dudes could usually get dates with the women, with the exception of girls in the top socio-economic quartile (top 25%).

    Note not referring to the top 25% in beauty, rather to the top women in society.
    For that segment of the local women, the elite, well-to-do daughters of the rich, going with any foreigner is seen as a step down.

    That seems to be the case with top-quartile women of ANY nationality and race, to include Americans.

    Indians never tired of reminding the Anglos of the sin of colonialism but practice colonialism themselves on its smaller neighbors. This is why India is hated by all its smaller neighbors. For an Indian colonialism is only bad if you are at the receiving end of it.

  173. Explanation one: Asians feel pressured to fit in with all the blondes around them so bleach their hair.
    Explanation two: Asians bleach their hair blond to stand out, to be different.

    Which is it? I propose that it is not racial but technological and economic. Hair dying/bleaching tech has improved and Asians have money to spend frivolously. It’s a trend stemming from anime and k-pop. Nothing to do with white Georgian blondes.

I'd have liked to have visited one when I was younger and unmarried, but, despite my having traveled more than probably all but about five percent of the world's population, I've yet to encounter even one such mythic place.

    I don’t know about Grace Kelly, but the rural upper Midwest comes pretty close – lots of Scandinavian- , German-, and Dutch-descended populations. There is even a Danish town in Iowa (that is still culturally a bit Danish, with I think one Danish speaker left). Dutch towns such as Pella are also quite blondish. People tend to be a bit thick though, as in the South.

    In the upper South (with which, I am sure, you are familiar), whites tend to be Scotch-Irish or English-descended in the main and generally seem to have that British Celtic look (brown hair and blue eyes).

    "known as Val92Met or V92M, is one of several SNPs in the MC1R gene commonly associated with red (or blond) hair and poor tanning, but note its high presence in one Asian population"

    https://academic.oup.com/mbe/article/31/8/1994/2925824

    "Neanderthal Origin of the Haplotypes Carrying the Functional Variant Val92Met in the MC1R in Modern Humans", Molecular Biology and Evolution, Published: 10 June 2014

    In this article, we present evidence of Neanderthal introgression encompassing the melanocyte-stimulating hormone receptor gene MC1R. The haplotypes from Neanderthal introgression diverged with the Altai Neanderthal 103.3 ka, which postdates the anatomically modern human–Neanderthal divergence. We further discovered that all of the putative Neanderthal introgressive haplotypes carry the Val92Met variant, a loss-of-function variant in MC1R that is associated with multiple dermatological traits including skin color and photoaging. Frequency of this Neanderthal introgression is low in Europeans (∼5%), moderate in continental East Asians (∼30%), and high in Taiwanese aborigines (60–70%). ... we found that the almost all of the derived alleles at the Val92Met variant of MC1R (rs2228479*A) in the human gene pool are carried by the putative introgressive haplotypes. As the Val92Met variant is reported associated with multiple dermatological traits including skin color and photoaging, we speculate that this Neanderthal introgression ... may have played an important role in the local adaptation of modern Eurasians to sunlight intensity. ... 59 Neanderthal AIMs were identified within the MC1R gene and its left and right 100-kb flanking regions. It was observed that a number of non-African haplotypes carry segments with Neanderthal ancestry, implicating the presence of Neanderthal introgression encompassing MC1R.

     

    The Altai region is on the extreme Chinese north-west area bordering with Russia and Mongolia. The second oldest and the longest imperial Chinese Zhou dynasty (1050–249 BCE, lasted 801 years) formed by the alliance of the Ji and Jiang people from areas close to the Altai region and most of the Chinese surnames originated from that dynasty. The word 'Jiang' is used to describe people with red hair. But red hair gene is recessive and the effects are often negated by the black hair gene. Still statistically the children of European-Chinese couples 1/7 will have natural red or blonde hairs. The rarest I've seen is a AsianIndian-Chinese couple both have black hair but the young children have blonde hair.

    From Ding's supp data for rs2228479*A,

    Pop %AlleleA %GenoAG %GenoAA
    Chinese 30.23 60.47 0
    Korean 19.12 26.47 5.88
    Laotian 34.48 51.72 8.62
    Cambodian 16.67 16.67 8.33

    It is interesting that out of 43 Chinese sample there is no GenoAA. Yet 2/34 Korean sample have genoAA. There seems to be more admixture in Chinese.

    Thanks. BTW, I am not Chinese.

    DNA Land also pegged me as about 10% Mongolian.

  180. For what it’s worth blond hair doesn’t have European origins it evolved in an ancient population from way out East that was genetically closest to Native Americans (the Ancient North Eurasians):

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afontova_Gora

    “In a 2016 study, researchers determined that Afontova Gora 2, Afontova Gora 3, and Mal’ta 1 (Mal’ta boy) shared common descent and were clustered together in a Mal’ta cluster.[12] Genetically, Afontova Gora 3 is not closer to Afontova Gora 2 when compared to Mal’ta 1.[12] When compared to Mal’ta 1, the Afontova Gora 3 lineage apparently contributed more to modern humans and are genetically closer to Native Americans.[12]

    Phenotypic analysis shows that Afontova Gora 3 carries the derived rs12821256 allele associated with blond hair color in Europeans, making Afontova Gora 3 the earliest individual known to carry this derived allele.[16]”

    This was the same population that gave rise to the Indo-Europeans who invaded Europe from the east to buttfuck them and give them their modern languages. So, you better thank those Ancient North Eurasians for your blond hair or your fake blond hair, I guess. Before Asians showed up, Western Europeans all looked like this:

    I am hunting buddies with a guy who owns a small landscaping company (that works on my house). I ended up becoming friends with him after we chatted while he was supervising the work on my yard (funny enough that’s how I became friends with my HVAC guy as well).

    He told me that East Asians are absolutely bargain-hunters (“No offense, Twinkie, but East Asians always try to get the lowest possible price.” – “Hey, none taken, man. Did you give me the lowest possible price?”), but are generally polite and pleasant to deal with as customers otherwise. On the other hand, he got offended a lot with Indian clients, because they would treat and speak to him as if he were their servant! And he’s a multi-generational native of the state whose family goes back to its founding and is a pretty cultured college graduate to boot.

    He was pretty astonished by how much I knew about soil and pesticides (I did farming for a bit for my in-laws), and told me that Indians seemed to know virtually nothing about gardening and landscaping, but would complain incessantly about weeds growing and grasses dying and such… all the while NOT watering their yards during the middle of the summer.

Sailer must be thinking of all the fish swimming in the water behind the Oroville Dam. I can't think of any other reason why Sailer, who is usually gentlemanly and courteous to human females, would do such a rude and ill-mannered thing.

    Sailer must remember that the average largemouth bass has a memory of one half hour. The average human female has a memory of between 50 and 80 years.

    Largemouth bass love to see the spinner lure come glittering on by as they hover in the water. They hit that spinner like a bastard. If you wait a half hour, the same largemoth bass will hit it again. A human female would not fall for the spinner bait lure in the same way that a largemouth bass does. No sir!

    Sailer notices a lot of things, but the human female can in no way be compared to a largemouth bass.

    I've often thought the same thing about women who wear high heels, having thought that "foot binding" went out with the Qing dynasty. However, as one commenter suggests, females often make dumb fashion statements to appear more attractive to males.

    There is a small number of Koreans who have natural reddish hair, as a result of taking in a Dutch shipwreck victim a long time ago.
     
    I don't think it's because of the Dutch.

    My mother (100% East Asian) has naturally dark auburn hair. She was teased about it when she was young, so she dyed it black all her life. Perhaps because of her genes, I have copper tones to my hair, and my facial/body hair is even more reddish. One of my (half Asian) children has full-on red hair (she also has full-on green eyes and is strikingly beautiful).

    My genetics test came out 99.5% East Asian (and 0.5% Southeast Asian) per 23andme, but it did come out as several times more likely to have lighter eyes and hair color than "average" East Asian on 23andme testing pool.

    Someone on Razib Khan's blog claimed that this was due to East Asian Neanderthal genes, but I have not seen anything to corroborate it.

    When I was overseas for a stretch in the greater Middle East, I grew a full beard and my buddies were quite surprised to see the copper color and remarked that, with sunglasses on, I looked like a local.

    The Neanderthal red hair theory has been refuted.

    """The Neanderthal red hair theory has been refuted."""

    1. British people are not the whole world. Dannemann tried to extrapolate the British results to the whole world.

    2. Absent of evidence is not evidence of absent. One valid proof can trump multiple absents of evidence.

    3. Reference Neanderthal DNA is from Altai. Distance Altai~London 5511.6km plus the British Channel, Altai-Xian 2715.8 km. Xian - ancient capital of Zhou dynasty.

    4. Dannemann's study employed simplistic direct comparison. Neanderthal/Sapien separated at least 35 thousand years ago. No consideration for later mutations on the Sapien side. It is like deciding that a recently renovated building which is differed from its former blueprint is no longer considered to be in its former location while most of the 59 of its direct neighbouring buildings still stay true to their respective blueprints. In fact from Ding's paper, """However, rs2228479*A was not found in the Altai Neanderthal genome (directly). Therefore, it is also possible that the mutation creating the rs2228479*A on the putative introgressive haplotypes occurred shortly after the putative introgressive haplotype entering modern human gene pool.""" The closest match is to that for Neanderthal as proved by the surrounding 59 neighbouring Ancentry Informative Markers (AIMs) of Altaic Neanderthal. A big chunk of the Altaic Neanderthal MC1R gene remained intact in significant number of Sapiens (EAS 28.9%, EUR 6.9%, AFR 0.4%) as shown by the AIMs. Dannemann did not look for later day directly derived SNPs.

    The SJWs are hell bent on dissociating Sapien outside Africa with Neanderthal. Something about somebody has equally big brain. Researchers had been known to be pushed out of ivy league universities for going against the narratives. Are you one of those SJWs ??

    All my life I’ve sort of been confused by the obsession of non-whites with blonde hair, like blonde hair is a symbol of whiteness, because most white people aren’t even blonde, at least all the places I’ve lived in the USA. And then there is the common talk, among whites who are not blonde, about how blondes are dummies and connecting Nazi racism to blonde hair. When I was a kid it was normal for people to say “The Nazis only liked people who had blonde hair,” but whenever I saw Hitler on TV, he didn’t look blonde to me. Blonde hair really seems to drive people who are not blonde a little crazy.

  202. There is an interesting scene in the Hunger Games movie. One of the tribute-competitors is a sexy blond girl and she is clearly supposed to be a bad person. (Since Katniss is a Mary Sue, anyone who tries to harm her is a bad person almost by definition.)

    Anyway, the way that the sexy blond girl meets her end is by getting stung to death by mutant bees. In other words, her looks are destroyed in a dramatic way along with her life.

    I don’t think this is a coincidence; people should be more aware of envy as a driving force behind human thinking. I do think that East Asian women are attractive but for the most part they lack the natural variation in hair and eye color which makes white women so captivating to so many people.

    For what it's worth blond hair doesn't have European origins it evolved in an ancient population from way out East that was genetically closest to Native Americans (the Ancient North Eurasians):


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afontova_Gora

    "In a 2016 study, researchers determined that Afontova Gora 2, Afontova Gora 3, and Mal'ta 1 (Mal'ta boy) shared common descent and were clustered together in a Mal'ta cluster.[12] Genetically, Afontova Gora 3 is not closer to Afontova Gora 2 when compared to Mal'ta 1.[12] When compared to Mal'ta 1, the Afontova Gora 3 lineage apparently contributed more to modern humans and are genetically closer to Native Americans.[12]

    Phenotypic analysis shows that Afontova Gora 3 carries the derived rs12821256 allele associated with blond hair color in Europeans, making Afontova Gora 3 the earliest individual known to carry this derived allele.[16]"

    This was the same population that gave rise to the Indo-Europeans who invaded Europe from the east to buttfuck them and give them their modern languages. So, you better thank those Ancient North Eurasians for your blond hair or your fake blond hair, I guess. Before Asians showed up, Western Europeans all looked like this:

    Why are Asians getting names like Justin, Frank, Amy, Andrea, Jackie, Wesley, Cindy, Caspian(???), Alvin, etc?
     
    Try to keep up, dude. Those names are so 1980's. Try Benson, Connor, Tyler, Madison, Smith, Caid, for starters. Yes, I DO mean for first names. It's a 10-year old trend, that must have started from a book. See, women all read the same books about child-raising, all over the world, since we are all global and shit now.

    How many times have you heard a Mom tell the kid about "making the wrong choice."? They'll say that about everything. It all comes from one book somewhere that was promoted by Okra or Dr. Phil. Not a lot of creativity is involved, yet these MILFS somehow always seem to get a pass ...

Not BO or genital smells, it was a smell like some sort of industrial cleaning product.

    This was both the men and the women.

    (( Nina Hartley)) and Peter North were there, along with some girl that was famous and killed herself a little later, I don't remember her name. There were roughly a dozen "film personalities" there, many of whose names (real or stage) are long forgotten.

    Later on I met Ron Jeremy a couple of times. Jeremy did not appear to have skin issues. He smelled, but of good old fashioned BO.

    I’ve often thought the same thing about women who wear high heels, having thought that “foot binding” went out with the Qing dynasty. However, as one commenter suggests, females often make dumb fashion statements to appear more attractive to males. Apparently, they do not want to frighten away the boys with evidence of threateningly high IQs.

    I have noticed what I think is the same trend, but I have always assumed that it could be ascribed to differences among individuals in the definition of "blonde" in each person's mental lexicon. Japanese people, for example, would often call me kimpatsu ("blond," derived from Chinese morphemes, 金髪, that could be roughly translated to English as "gold hair") despite the fact that my natural hair color is squarely medium brown (though it does exhibit a golden or coppery luster under strong light). There are many linguistic subtleties that might influence individuals' internal definitions; in the case of this word, it might be relevant that the Chinese character 金 is used to mean not only "gold," but also "money" or "metal" in general. However, I think the most important factor by far is the scarcity of naturally non-black hair among ethnically/genetically Japanese people; because of this fact, any hair that is not jet black stands out and gets noticed, and may be described by some individuals as kimpatsu despite being nowhere near the range of color to which "blond"/"blonde" would be applied by white Anglophones.

    In other words, I think this pattern may be adequately described as a primarily linguistic/definitional difference (Anglophone whites' definition of "blond" being much narrower than Japanese people's definition of kimpatsu) rather than any neurooptical difference.

    People plainly do have different thresholds for what constitutes blondness, but, offhand, I don't know of any studies involving non-Europeans. I do recall reading about an interesting case involving intra-European standards for blondness, though. Back in the first third of the 20th century, a test was done comparing standards for blondness among French and British anthropologists. and it was discovered that the French anthropologists had significantly lower standards for what constitutes blond hair (characterizing as blond what the Brits would label light brown, etc).

    To compete with White and East Asian women.

    Not worth it! The only way to attract a man worth having is to go natural, clean and well-groomed, but natural.
     
    Then shouldn't "natural" Black women be out-competing the gals with the weaves......

    Then shouldn’t “natural” Black women be out-competing the gals with the weaves…

    I’m not black, so I can’t speak to that, but I will say this. I eventually came to the point where I specifically did not want to talk to any guys who didn’t want to talk to me unless I was wearing makeup and sexy get ups. I still got attention, and I got it from a better class of guys and for the right reasons.

    Yeah, why EVERYONE has been telling Associate Professor Erin Khue Ninh to "go back where you came from!"

    http://www.asamst.ucsb.edu/sites/secure.lsit.ucsb.edu.astd.d7-2/files/styles/people_node/public/people/photo/Ninh%20headshot%20BW.jpg

    Specialization:
    Asian American and comparative ethnic literatures, literary studies, women's literature, feminist studies, cultural studies, family and intergenerational conflict, power and subject formation, gender and the embodied subject, mental health, sexual violence

    Education:
    Ph.D., Berkeley, English


    Wow, look as us wicked racist Americans, only letting her get a PhD from Berkeley. If she were a white male she'd have gone to Harvard, immediately.

    Her research and teaching explore the subtleties of power, harm, and subject formation, whether in the contexts of terror and war, of family and immigration, or of girlhood and beauty.

    In other words, she writes about herself and her obsessions. That's scholarship my friends!

    Her monograph, Ingratitude: The Debt-Bound Daughter in Asian American Literature (NYU), won the Literary Studies Book Award from the Association for Asian American Studies in 2013. The book takes a long look at intergenerational conflict, that weary specter of second-generation writing, but under the harsh new lights of post-structuralist and cultural-materialist analyses. Ninh argues that the immigrant family unit is structured by an economic and political investment in the American capitalist system, and driven by its dedication profitably to raise the model minority. She argues, too, the grievous costs of this capitalist venture: a daughterly subjectivity trained by masochism into self-destruction.

    TLDR: Mommy wasn't at all happy that I got a bullshit degree and didn't become a doctor. And she never lets me forget it.

    Why is plastic surgery and hair dyeing big in Asia itself?
     
    Because people like to look attractive? Have you ever been to Southern California or Florida?

    Why are Asians getting names like Justin, Frank, Amy, Andrea, Jackie, Wesley, Cindy, Caspian(???), Alvin, etc?
     
    Not Koreans or Japanese. This is a phenomenon in English-speaking countries (USA, UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, etc.).

    Why are they leaving their own nations to live as minorities in white-made nations? Are they white-preferist? Do they prefer white world to their own?
     
    There is hardly any immigration from Japan. That from Korea is declining drastically. Even Chinese immigration is likely to decline significantly in the future.

    The vast majority of East Asians is not emigrating. Don't generalize about all of them based on a very small fraction that emigrates to the West.

    People (like I) are unusual by definition.

    South Korea leads the world in cosmetic surgeries per capita; an ABC News story claims that 1 in 5 women in Seoul has had plastic surgery. The desire for Western-looking eyes is strong.

    Having studied for some years in some of the colder places in America, I was puzzled by seeing young women on university campuses with exposed midriffs in -20 degree weather. The only reasonable hypothesis I could come up with is that stupidity is, apparently, attractive.

    The Taiwanese have a saying about this in the local dialect, Minnan Yu, or Hokklo. Sorry for the horrendous Romanization, but I’ll just have to let it rip.

    Back in my day, guys were named Brian and the like. It's the same schwa-n second syllable with different first syllables. Boys first names go thru this regular evolution involving slightly different sounds. I suspect the parents of golf pros tend to not be either very avant-garde or very downscale laggard in their tastes, so perhaps golf stars tend to bunch up with whatever kind of names were slightly trend yet respectable about 30 years ago.

    Yep, the “J”‘s were big for kid born in the mid-70′s through about the end of the 80′s: Josh, Justin, Jason, Jeremy, and sometimes Josiah. Good thing they don’t all play golf. Hell, good thing I don’t watch golf!

    There is a whole Wikipedia page on stereotypes about blondes that refers to academic studies on people’s beliefs about the intelligence of blondes.
     
    And yet I've never met a single person who genuinely thinks that blond people are stupid.....And I've even got Nixon-esque black hair, so I doubt that people are trying to avoid hurting my feelings....

    That being said, I'm sure that some people have been influenced by Jewish comics telling anti-blonde jokes....

    I think the dumb blonde thing refers more to peroxide blondes who dye their hair to improve their sex and camera appeal than to Scandinavians.

    That’s a bingo!

    Yet White women have been more supportive of immigration. Probably because they think it means more males to fight over them.

    So let’s demand more immigration from Eastern Europe!

    Methinks White women might not be as eager to see East European hotties rolling in.

    “Yet White women have been more supportive of immigration. Probably because they think it means more males to fight over them.”

    Yeah, no. I’ve made this point before: There’s a reason for the old adage that a woman wants a man who’s Tall, Dark and Handsome. You’ll notice the order: Tall first, then dark, then handsome. Now, the dark, and even, in a few cases, the handsome are somewhat negotiable, PARTICULARLY if the target is both rich and powerful. But not tall? No. Not happening.

    Have you looked at the sorts of men that are mass-immigrating from South of the border? They are low-IQ, rather greasy, gardeners and day-laborers. To be sure, they're dark, but they are not handsome and CERTAINLY not rich and powerful. But also — and most crucially — these fellas are like 5 feet 5 inches. In short, they're short.

    Did I mention they're short?

    What gal wants a greasy, low status Squatamalan who's short? PFFF. Your theory is SILLY.

    The women who support mass immigration are single women who are self-absorbed and stupid, vapidly looking for Social Headpats for Correct Thinking. Married White women voted for Trump.

    Has there ever been a scientific study on differences of the eyes and ability to perceive color between of whites and non-whites? Based on decades of anecdotal observation, the two groups' thresholds for what constitutes blonde are worlds apart.

    I have noticed what I think is the same trend, but I have always assumed that it could be ascribed to differences among individuals in the definition of “blonde” in each person’s mental lexicon. Japanese people, for example, would often call me kimpatsu (“blond,” derived from Chinese morphemes, 金髪, that could be roughly translated to English as “gold hair”) despite the fact that my natural hair color is squarely medium brown (though it does exhibit a golden or coppery luster under strong light). There are many linguistic subtleties that might influence individuals’ internal definitions; in the case of this word, it might be relevant that the Chinese character 金 is used to mean not only “gold,” but also “money” or “metal” in general. However, I think the most important factor by far is the scarcity of naturally non-black hair among ethnically/genetically Japanese people; because of this fact, any hair that is not jet black stands out and gets noticed, and may be described by some individuals as kimpatsu despite being nowhere near the range of color to which “blond”/”blonde” would be applied by white Anglophones.

    In other words, I think this pattern may be adequately described as a primarily linguistic/definitional difference (Anglophone whites’ definition of “blond” being much narrower than Japanese people’s definition of kimpatsu) rather than any neurooptical difference.

    Is it too much to ask that professional writers stop gazing at their own navels long enough to get a semi-accurate picture of reality? If you go to Japan or Taiwan and the first thing you'll notice is just how many young women dye their hair blond (or, more commonly, a sort of light brown color). This trend didn't originate in the US; it originated in countries with insignificant minorities of natural blondes.

    I’ve spent some time in Asia, too, and I’ve noticed the same thing.

    It’s reminder to beware of the Murray Gell-Mann Amnesia effect. Most journalism majors don’t know their asses from their elbows, but it’s hard to tell when they betray their ignorance on a topic that you’re not familiar with either.

    Women like shiny jewelry: gold, silver, diamonds. They reflect light and catch the eye. Blond hair is kind of similar in its effects.

    I hereby accuse Steve Sailer of equating the intellect of human females to the intellect of a largemouth bass. Sailer must be thinking of all the fish swimming in the water behind the Oroville Dam. I can’t think of any other reason why Sailer, who is usually gentlemanly and courteous to human females, would do such a rude and ill-mannered thing.

    Sailer must remember that the average largemouth bass has a memory of one half hour. The average human female has a memory of between 50 and 80 years.

    Largemouth bass love to see the spinner lure come glittering on by as they hover in the water. They hit that spinner like a bastard. If you wait a half hour, the same largemoth bass will hit it again. A human female would not fall for the spinner bait lure in the same way that a largemouth bass does. No sir!

    Sailer notices a lot of things, but the human female can in no way be compared to a largemouth bass.

    Where are these fantastic places inhabited by all the ugly, jealous, dark people, that everyone looks like Grace Kelly?
     
    I don't know about Grace Kelly, but the rural upper Midwest comes pretty close - lots of Scandinavian- , German-, and Dutch-descended populations. There is even a Danish town in Iowa (that is still culturally a bit Danish, with I think one Danish speaker left). Dutch towns such as Pella are also quite blondish. People tend to be a bit thick though, as in the South.

    In the upper South (with which, I am sure, you are familiar), whites tend to be Scotch-Irish or English-descended in the main and generally seem to have that British Celtic look (brown hair and blue eyes).

    I’ve bee to the rural, northern, mid western states. Plenty of people have brown hair and such. A few people are suggesting places where blonde hair and blue eyes are more common than they are elsewhere. Of course such places exist. My point is no place on Earth actually (literally!) exists like these jackasses describe, where (according to their whining pieces) literally everyone has blonde hair and blue eyes. Whereas innumerable places exist where literally everyone is a Negro, an Oriental, etc. It’s sheer, shameless projection and hypocrisy to make a Jew proud.

    That's not comparing apples to apples. Blondes with blue eyes are not the totality of whites. There are still plenty of places that are 100% white. Whether those places are the kind of places where you can make a good living and/or where you want to live is another question.

    China still has many parts that are poor and is highly authoritarian, to boot, but it's getting hard to find affluent parts of East Asia that are completely devoid of non-natives.

    My point is no place on Earth actually (literally!) exists like these jackasses describe, where (according to their whining pieces) literally everyone has blonde hair and blue eyes.
     
    Ok. I don't disagree. But blond hair is not in the majority even in Scandinavia. But they are very common there as in the upper Midwest of the United States. I think people who say "everyone is blond there" is using a rhetorically flourish.

    Where my wife grew up, the mix at her local schools was about 50-50 brown/blond-haired. Almost no one had black hair. That's a pretty blond place.

    There are fair-haired people in the Middle East and North Africa.Obviously not at the same frequency as in the Baltic, but they do exist.
     
    Also in South Asia. The Kalash are the prime example. They look very white! Yet they are genetically very Indian.

    I googled Kalash and (1) they look standard central asian, (2) apparently DNA testing shows they have a huge amount of a totally unique heredity from an unknown source that is shared with no other group apparently.

    They do have european looking facial features with a pakistani like skin tone, which is not abnormal for central asia. Maybe it is the wrong Kalash?
