The Huffington Post just ran my piece titled An Open Letter to the Girl Whose Interracial Relationship Ended, which I first published on this blog.
In case you haven’t read it yet, here’s a snippet:
I was shocked to learn your steady Asian boyfriend of several years had left you.
Even though we’ve never met in person, I feel like you’re an old friend. Maybe that’s because we’ve both been in interracial relationships with Asian men. Or because I came to know you through what you shared with me over the years. Or even because you’ve supported me when I needed it most.
So I don’t think it’s enough to just say, “I’m sorry.” Sorry is such a small word, and small comfort. Honestly, I would rather give you hugs, just holding you the way friends have for me when I’ve weathered breakups.
You can read it all at the Huffington Post. And if you love it, share it!
P.S.: I’m in the process of moving this week, so I might be slow to respond to comments. Thanks in advance for your understanding!
