Juice Bar

Before Bubble tea or Boba tea was all the rage, there was the ancestor of this Juice bar that was located in Dai Pai Dong, a term used for a out door food court type restaurants often referred to as DPD by American Born Chinese. DPD left and then there was this Juice Bar and also Royal Palace. Royal Palace is now Su Su's and I guess The Juice Bar is now going too. A shame for the customer since the cold deserts are especially great in the summer. 

Of course there are other juice bars. and Kung Fu teas and all other sorts of powdered drinks but this place and the owners have been around a while and the drinks were made fresh.

Wonder what will open here.

I have been seeing more about mixed couples... And I think an entire. Blog could be about just this subject alone. Also being mixed I think  it would be easy to just speak from experience.

Whatever, like, it's something t o talk about.

Interestingly I happen to write on another news site, Cabo Verde network, and although it's not like race or color has no issue at all with the vape verdeans, let's just say it is a fairly mixed group of people.

So are Hispanics. And another term I learned was "red bone."

Red bone was mentioned on Aziz Ansari's "Master of none" as something that black people called light skinned black people.

Oh people are Also very mixed. White people are too they just tend to hide it until recently for obvious reasons.

But anyway, red bone are actually their own group that were all mixed. Black, white, and the tribes if people originally from here. They kept to themselves.... And sometimes were just considered white because it was just easier.

You see racism as a system is actually hard to continue to maintain. It takes a lot if work.

Asians...a pretty broad term including all sorts of people, were sometimes categorized as white as well. And actually Caucasians, people from the caucusus...were not really white. Read " A hero if our time."   

Most of what I have been seeing has to do with mixed couples Chinese  and white, and the politics involved in that. Politics that aren't necessarily part of the individual relationship.

I would just like to point out that people have been mixing for white a long time. In fact a good deal of Europeans probably have some Mongolian blood.

Not only that, but there are Neanderthal genes in there and Asians have a good amount of homo erectus DNA.

My point is...yes there are issues and stereotypes that need to be addressed. But sometimes addressing then is already messed up and kind of looking askance at mixed people as if they are impure...when the truth is only some African are even fully cromagnon and maybe some aborigines.

I just feel like any discussion has to start with that.  That most people claiming not to be mixed are mixed. They just don't know it.

Housing standards

New housing being built. I guess I never gave it much thought. But I wonder what type of wood this is and what the standards are for safety reasons. I mean what with all the news about that building in London.
