My name is Tim and I recently saw a Youtube video you had posted wherein you interviewed Asian men and Black American women in NYC about their thoughts regarding interracial dating and marriage. From there I found your other video to which I am responding. First, I would just like to commend you for the outstanding work you have done and thank you for navigating these issues of race in the way that you do. Before I get to the heart of my response, perhaps I should preface it with a little information about myself. My dad is of mixed European ancestry and self-identifies as White, and my mom is half Puerto Rican and half Italian and identifies as multi-racial however, she acknowledges that she can oftentimes pass for White and as such does benefit from White privilege. I grew up in a predominantly White area and was one of the only Asian American students for the entirety of my grammar and high school career. During and after college, I have maintained a diverse group of friends and have had the good fortune to travel to various places in Asia including a two year stint in Korea and Taiwan, as well as less extensive periods in Hong Kong, Japan, and mainland China.
I’m Chinese American. My husband’s white. Here’s the reaction we get when we travel.
America loves Asian women. This trend, popularly dubbed “yellow fever,” is not a new phenomenon, springing instead from an attraction to what some observers say is the exotic appeal of Asian women, and a self-indulging fantasy of being with women who are seen as docile and submissive. While Asian women seem to be in high demand, Asian men do not. Asian female and non-Asian male pairings are seen to be common , but Asian men are often left out of the discussion over interracial relationships entirely.
As one of my black female friends put it, “Asian men, along with black women, are probably the least desirable people.
The other really frustrating element to being an White man Asian woman couple is that you experience prejudice from opposite directions. When I am in England I am the sleazy Western man who cant find a woman in my own country, so I bought an Asian, and in Korea, my wife is the dirty, easy, Korean slut who just wants sex, money or wants to learn.
Tell me about the experience. I’ve just married an Asian-American man. He was born in the U. But my future in-laws frighten me. I’m also now pregnant. I’m wondering about the entire biracial experience for my future child and if it’s a girl, what will my in laws truly think?! I know, a random thread without a lot of focus.
But if you’re reading this, I’m hoping you’re willing to share your experiences and advice. If you are a white woman married to an Asian man.

Introduction We often take for granted how bad Asian males have it in the dating market in the West, particularly in North America. Many cite the response rates from the OKCupid studies, and also refer to our own subjective personal experiences. What could cause this? At least the Asian men get a improvement in rating now. Other races do not nearly have such a disparity. The silver lining here is that when we ARE able to outmarry, we tend to do so with higher quality partners.
Not all bad, brothers. These out marriage rates and statistics only give half the picture though; they do not quantify how difficult it is for an Asian man to actually land a white girl.
