Russian Oriental women
Russian Women. How Do They Look?
While reading an article written by Elena Petrova, where she insists that Russian marriage agencies do not deliver "mail order brides", at first I grew to like what she was talking about. Her words were true, strong and reassuring, she stood up for the positive image of those Russian women (word Russian is used frequently in relation to the women from a former USSR) who reach abroad in an effort to create a family of their own.
One only phrase made me worried. Elena was saying that women who apply to her agency are, among the other positive qualities, Caucasian looking (which means they are white). Logically, no Oriental (which means Asian) or black women of Russia apply to her agency. At the same time that phrase obviously does not say that all the Oriental looking or black women of Russia are married or have marriage-oriented Russian men knocking every day on their door..
In an American environment, where education, Media, and everyday life is involved so strongly with diversity, such phrase sounds inappropriate, uneducated, and too conservative (talking about times of a tzar Nicolas). That sounds also historically and politically incorrect, because Russia consists of eighty four different nationalities, among them many belong to Oriental people of the vast Asian part of Russia. If women of Russia of not Caucasian nationalities ( I would call them national minorities) are excluded from applying to Elena Petrova's agency "Russian Brides Cyber Guide", then it is right to ask if she is a nationalist.
There is also a little business advise for Elena. I myself
am a Russian person, but I happened to look a lot like Asian (or Oriental),
but believe me, among all the other twenty Russian women, whom my husband
wrote in a beginning I was one of two Oriental looking, and he chose
me. To clarify things farther, he is of German, Cherokee Indian, Irish,
and Italian descent, but he happened to be an American. He was lucky
enough to use another agency. Believe me, when it goes for relationship
with a women, American man are not nationalist. They do not prefer Caucasian
looking women over any other brand. They value woman's soul, and not
the package she comes wrapped in. In reality, she does not need to be
all that beautiful either. This is where your agency looses a great
chunk of money!
