Protests are breaking out in Saudi Arabia and the crowds are mostly of women. Mohammed Jamjoom talks to Jonathan Mann.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Female teachers mount jobs rally

SAUDI ARABIA: Around 30 women teachers demonstrated outside the kingdom’s Education Ministry today, demanding full-time jobs.

They were calling for full-time contracts and benefits including steady pay and retirement packages.

The Labour Ministry admits there are more than 200,000 unemployed women seeking jobs in the kingdom and around 75 per cent of them are college graduates.

A picture of a conference in Saudi Arabia on ‘women in society’ – attended by men only – has gone viral. As absurd as it sounds, it reminds Louisa Peacock of a typical UK business conference: here.

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What will happen when racist, far-right, anti-social, anti-diversity, anti-feminist, anti-black, anti-asian men marry "traditional, family oriented, submissive," extremely racist, abusive asian tiger moms who hope their children look white for privilege - and produce half asian sons who look totally asian, who have to deal with constant racism against asian men? An honest appraisal of self hatred and the frightening sociology of fetishes and their outcome.

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most strange, racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer white men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and white women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to white men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many white supremacists, alt-rightists, and white nationalists have Asian partners? Why do racist white men fetishize Asian women, and why do Asian women fetishize white men - and what does that mean for the children? Compiled by the son of a racist white father and a racist Chinese mother.
