40. Speaking as a member of a minority myself

I just find it sociologically interesting.

And yes, I should have said "of Asian extraction," because "Asian" doesn't refer to nationality, only to race.

Also interesting to note that Asian/White couples have the highest incomes in the US:

I just wonder about this phenomenon.

As an aside, when I was in high school, I was told by my (white) boyfriend that he could never marry me because I would "hurt his business prospects" since I was a minority. I have to laugh about it now, because I've out-earned him many times over.

(p.s., minorities ALWAYS notice race. Only white people claim it's "sad" that race is ever noticed.)
