    I don’t think people understand how hard it is for some of us black women to date. And I’ll even get more specific: Dark skinned black women.

    I’ve liked so many men and women but I never pursued them in the past because I’d hear them say they weren’t interested in dark skinned women. Do you know how much that hurts? Someone you think is really sweet, respectful, and awesome turns out to be another individual who is disgusted by your appearance?

    NO. JUST NO.

    Look, I know he isn’t as inspirational as Nicki Minaj is, but he had some good hits you know. Like, you can’t completely denounce him as a musical master, he did a lot in his day!

    Completely agree. Mozart did do some things that Nicki Minaj also did, while  Mozart did only empower white men to be more pretentious it’s still somewhat comparable to a female rapper who, not only dominates the industry, but is a positive role model for women.

  8. "I’m so proud of my heritage, but yes, I think there’s always a danger when people put you on a pedestal. Especially when you’re just trying to live your life and pursue your dreams. The intention is not to represent Asian Americans, but to be an Asian American who is working as an actress. People often confuse the two. When you are "representing," you have the burden of some people projecting their hopes onto you. This can eventually lead to a certain amount of disappointment. I strive to not deny myself experiences that open up to me. I hope to live without looking back in regret. If people want to join me on the ride, then I’m happy to have them along."
