And also the stereotypes that come with being Asian in Brazil. Imma hit him up soon.


I'd love to hear more. Not familiar with this topic.

I agree, but I know some black people who would disagree. Especially if they saw his son, they'd say a black man couldnt make a white baby like that LOL

colonialism and slavery really did a number on african and afro-descended people worldwide
