Restaurateur Eddie Huang composed an opinion piece in The New York Times throughout the end of the week, calling the Steve Harvey’s critique on dating Asian men “upsetting. Harvey speaks openly about issues facing the black community, he is a man of God, and he has a huge platform to speak from. Unfortunately, he’s also the type of guy who orders Krug champagne for himself and Cook’s for everyone else. For his own personal profit, he’s willing to perpetuate the emasculation of Asian men regardless of how hypocritical it is”, said Huang.
Amid a January sixth fragment of the “Steve Harvey Show,” the 59-year-old host discussed a 2002 book titled, How to Date a White Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men. Indicating that white ladies would not have any desire to date an Asian man, he likewise made up an option book title called, How to Date a Black Woman: A Practical Guide for Asian Men. Harvey stated, “You like Asian men? I don’t even like Chinese food. I don’t eat what I can’t pronounce.”
The Fresh Off the Boat creator likewise addressed a portion of the deep rooted generalizations about Asian men like himself, and said he can’t identify with them. He includes the one joke that still damages, be that as it may, is the means by which ladies don’t need Asian men.
Huang went on to say, “We count good, we bow well, we are technologically proficient, we’re naturally subordinate, our male anatomy is the size of a thumb drive and we could never in a thousand millenniums be a threat to steal your girl. Attractiveness is a very haphazard dish that can’t be boiled down to height or skin color, but Asian men are told that regardless of what the idyllic mirepoix is or isn’t, we just don’t have the ingredients.”
