You shouldn't be shocked that a group who has experienced discrimination would turn around and discriminate on another group themselves. It seems to be part of the human condition that we want to be treated fairly but overlook our own behavior. Not all black individuals are like that though, some (like myself) are
I'm pretty white.. I mean I don't have pink eyes or anything but otherwise it would be hard to get much whiter than me with my hyper-sunburnable, pale, cave fish skin and my blue eyes, blond hair... (shhhh dont tell
Vietnamese women are absolutely stunning! Typical Vietnamese features are small face, small nose, larger eyes. The eyes are a huge giveaway. Skin color tends to range from pale to tanned skin. Majority of Vietnamese people, in general, are actually pale/light-skinned though. Very, very few have had cosmetic surgery
As an Indian living in the EU who have suffered discrimination and racism heavily on an everyday basis, I think it is normal for Indian men to seek White women for marriage to atleast give their kids, a genetic advantage. There are other factors like female to male ratio - less number of women for Indian
I'm going to agree entirely with @Jamal Hussein and @Raf Akan on this matter.As a disclaimer, I am not Bangladeshi or of Bengali origin, though for the past few years I have studied the culture of South Asia in general and
The probability of the woman having a black child might be higher if a different man were to be the father.The question seems to depend on the definition of what ‘ black' means in the phrase
Do you mean ‘flexible' in:our joints and body orour minds and thinking and behavior?In either case, we can become more flexible, but our flexibility is limited by our genes and our environment.In the first hatha yoga class I taught, there was a guy who
Yes there may be some but it is less than .01% and this is the reason why.Caucasian children are often the most sought after children in foster care, and this is mainly to do because of the fact that there are more white Americans in the country that are willing to adopt kids that
No. There is a world of difference between visible aging like wrinkling and the other bio markers of aging like mental / cognitive function, heart and organ health, general attitude, muscle mass and joint health. These things are determined by diet
Its not the fact if Indian men would marry white women. Is that can they trust white women to be loyal wives who follow Indian traditions. I know Indian guys play around in colleges with white women but in the back of their head
Depends on what they look like, to be honest, if we are talking about a scenario where we are just judging on looks, like a psychology research program, in which participants are given photographs and told to rate them.What? You think all black women are exactly resembling each other,
OK, what brought that question on? Most white women in the US date and eventually marry - get this - white men. Some white women may go out with black men but that is a small number and a small percentage. While the number of white women in the US who will date and consider
Hell yes!!!!! I was married to a woman that was the same shade of chocolate as me for several years. Even during our marriage, she would lament over the idea that "black women were losing" when she would see wealthy
No need to go anonymous, but i will do for personal reasons, and yes, am black and live in Vietnam..Do Vietnamese girls like Black men, it will depend on who you ask, some Vietnamese girls love you like human being, and they never
When I was growing up, I used to have a deep insecurity about my ethnicity (I'm Japanese). I thought that most girls, except for Asian girls, found Asian men to be unattractive. Plus, I was nerdy, liked to play video games, and studied math in my spare time.Consequently, I was a virgin until 23, but
How can an Asian man get together with a Caucasian woman? Are Caucasian women into Asian men? If they are, what's the best way to approach one?
First, let's stop with the feel-good PC myth that racial preferences don't exist. They do, and data everywhere confirms it. On average, white girls are simply not into Asian guys.The researchers, after controlling for all other attributes (height, weight, attractiveness, etc.), calculated how much extra income
I'm a black man. And the obvious answers to me would be jealousy, and of course racism. For the most part I don't see it as an issue to most white men. But I live in the N. Eastjust like it's not an issue to me for
Here's a piece that tackles this with links for your further study, The Race Dynamics of Online Dating: Why Are Asian Men Less ‘Eligible'? You will also find some answers on Quora (mine and others). Can you please elaborate what you mean by
White women are not a monolithic entity. They all don't think and act the same. They don't share a hive mind.They're individuals, each one with their own idiosyncrasies and preferences when it comes to dating. Like you and me.I've met white women who treated me as an individual
Statistics show that each year in the United States, there are approximately 630,000 White Male / Asian Female marriages, while only around 220,000 Asian Male / White Female marriages occur. Obviously, this shows a large discrepancy between the two situations.
Traditionally, black. Think of Thomas Jefferson's children with Sally Hemmings. 80 years before the Civil War he said,
In an interracial relationship, do both couple's cultures blend? For example, a Latino dates a Caucasian. Do the couple compromise on certain key aspects of their cultural identity (language, music, cuisine, ideology, family values or religion)?
I find that more so than inter-racial relationships this is a consequence of inter-cultural clashes.While it is generally true that people of two distinct races tend to come from different cultural backgrounds, it is equally true that they might have no
In marriages between blacks and whites, is it more common for a black man to marry a white woman, a black woman to marry a white man or is it about equal?
It's more common for Blacks to marry Whites more than Whites marrying Blacks.It's never equal.There are so many racists out there. They just have always been silent. You won't even know.Also it's always & more harder for each family & their families, friends,
Interracial Dating and Relationships: How common or rare it would be to see a South Asian (eg Indian) male with a White female in Canada?
If you are talking about raw statistical frequency, it is not common, even in urban areas. I have no figures but anecdotally, I would estimate 2 out of every 100 couples I see.If your question is really about social acceptability, most people wouldn't even bat an eyelid (Canada is a very diverse, accepting nation). People wouldn't
Is asking a question about something a member of another ethnicity has culturally insensitive, what does culturally insensitive even mean and how is anyone supposed to learn about other cultures and ethnicities if it's rude to ask?
Ask the question. If you get told the question is rude then you have learnt something of their culture.If you can't understand why, ask more questions. As long as you are trying to learn in a respectful way it shouldn't matter.
Yes. Denmark is very open and fairly democratic in their approach to other ethnicities. They love me in their quiet way and I am a Black and Italian American female.You do see a lot more different ethnicities, few brown people but they are there, in Copenhagen. Copenhagen
Is interracial dating, especially where the male is non-white and the woman is white, frowned upon more in the USA than in other western countries like in most of Europe, Canada, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand?
Well in most interracial relationships involving a person of full European origins, it tends to be a white woman anyway. You see this commonly, very few times is a white man seen with a woman from another race, but a white woman can be seen in public often with
Yes. I had a colleague from Denmark who once introduced me to his family. They were all tall blond and white except his 14 yr old who looked like a native African. The next day I asked him if his son was adopted to which he replied no. However,
You almost always have shit to talk about. I've dated plenty of white girls, and maybe I just prefer exogamy, but I feel like after a while, familiarity breeds contempt. You recognize too much of yourself in the other person, and best case scenario, you just kind of settle down and leave much of your
My parents are interracially married for 37 years and still together. In the 80s and 90s, it was bad, not all the time, but there was one time when a racist landlord didn't want to rent to us. Me and my brother both multiracial had to get down in the car and hide, so my parents could
We Japanese seem to have a difficult time with them.At the International Christian University in Mitaka Tokyo, There was a class called
Because I am 65 and male, I've seen some of the racial acceptance shifts happen and more than mentally acknowledged them, because they have impacted me deeply.From what I see black men have accepted for a long time that white men date black women, because as slaves there was nothing they could do
There are some reasons White Americans might be into Asian females, but usually it's because they lack some biological information. Because the overwhelming majority of
I am a white guy dating an Asian girl.Living over three years in Korea I have encountered just a single case of open hostility from an Asian man towards myself: a random old dude told me he would gouge out my eyes because I was spoiling Korean blood, while I was minding my own
My opinion? Personally. I don't see any problem in dating anybody with any type of skin color. Green, blue, purple, red, who cares. If you understand a certain language you can communicate with. That's all, even if be it in writing, if you

Encyclopedia: Interracial marriage is the term used to describe marriages that take place between people who are from different racial or ethnic groups. Intercultural marriages are defined as marriages between people who come from two different cultural backgrounds.With that
I have been married twice, each time to a white man.My first marriage was in 1987, and I was married for seven years. While my parents didn't have a problem with me marrying a white man (my mother was black, and my father is mixed), my husband's parents were a little apprehensive at first, though neither of
I apologise in advance for the flippant parts of my answer but all these weird racial questions are becoming a tad boring, so...................the most unusual interracial group is married couples from a mixed Rangers and Celtic heritage. This is closely followed by
What I'm seeing a lot of in these comments are opinions based largely on perception or personal experience.According to the 2011 British census,
No. I am not impressed by your tattoo. It's barely readable. Also, I don't know most Chinese characters, because my native language is a) English, and b) my family's native language doesn't really use them.On that note, no, Asian languages aren't all the same. I don't
My opinion? Well, the way I see it: they should be happy with each other, since they chose each other.When two people like each other and trust each other, you have all the ingredients necessary for a healthy and good relationship.We can't see the future, but I reckon that things will
I Would say the Former USSR Eastern European Countries (The Baltic Countries, Belarus, Ukraine and Moldova) has the highest percentage of White People. All of these Countries has over 99% of White People (In Estonia 99.8% which I think is the highest in the world but not sure.)Some Others
Which country has the lowest number of interracial marriages? Which culture is least likely to have interracial marriage?
India, Tibet, Sri Lanka, Several African countries and Mongolia all have less than 1% interracial marriages. I know Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, Iraq, and the Saudi Peninsula countries all have very low rates of interracial marriage as well. North Korea likely makes the list, but I have never seen any numbers.I don't what the exact
You can see different nations around each corner of the world with people having different ethnic backgrounds and those people belong to several means, because of occupation and other life necessities; therefore these people are living under the same country. This may
People usually divorce if they can afford to. Financial comfort has saved many a marriage. Black women tend to be more independent and can be more self sufficient in terms of taking care of a family financially.

I can give some thought on this. I do agree with AJ Sena on his experience and what he stated. However, there has been a reported rise in AMWF interracial relationship, this 2007 article reported on the rise of AMWF relationship:Why are Asian men and Caucasian women couples more common lately?For those
I hope I can explain my theory in a way that makes sense and yes this is just a theory.I have noticed cultures tend to be more or less traditional for lack of a better term. I would suggest that the white culture is a hair more traditional than the black culture.
I think it it independent of the race of couple but depends on the acceptability of society for interracial marriages.The simple answer for this question is that most of the family(or people) do not support interracial or interfaith marriages.It is the
Why are marriages between black men and white women more likely to end in divorce than any other marriage?
Lets look at this from the inside out.Is Interracial Marriage More Likely to End in Divorce?Marriages that took place between African American men and white women had twice the potential of ending up in divorce in comparison to marriages
In my honest opinion I don't remember ever seeing a person of mixed race that I considered attractive though to be fair I haven't seen that many either.Here's why I would assume however that mixed race people could be considered better looking.Wether or not
I majored in the sciences, so I was curious about the research. I had to do some digging because your link only gives the abstract. But I found the original document and noticed that the methodology is pretty suspect. The sample size is ridiculously low, and they did not select for different Asian
Because of stubborness and social pressures within the black community. Because rape by white men on black women in the slavery days has been deeply ingrained in the black community, a black female faces extreme ostracization if she dated a white man. On the flip side, black men have been falsely accused of raping
First of all, you need to check the data. According to Pew Research, 92% of white people marry only white people and 86% of black people marry only black people. There isn't some huge number of black people marrying whites. In percentage terms, a higher proportion of black marry outside their race than any
I had to make a new account due to White supremacist trolls, here's my answer again:The most important factor in racist anglo countries is that the Asian male has a horrific image from non-stop racist media attacks. It's so bad that the Asian female
Why are white male and Asian female couples much more common than Asian male and white female couples?
Before getting into Asian Males, let's establish: There are some reasons White Americans might be into Asian females, but usually it's because they lack some biological information. Because the overwhelming majority of
Why are 'White Man-Asian woman' marriages 50 times more successful compared to 'Black Man-White woman' marriages? Why does a majority of 'Black Man-White woman' marriages end in a divorce?
There are several reasons behind this : -Caucasians and Asians have similar culture. Even hundred of years ago the Caucasian people has intermixed with Asians and has produced mixed babies. Genghiz Khan himself married Caucasian women. Marriages between Black Man and white woman are happening only in the last
I'm not black, but I've observed (and fought against) the similar behavior in some of the Chinese men. The sentiment is that it's OK for Chinese men to marry foreign (white, Japanese, Vietnam....) girls, but it is NOT OK for

As an Asian man, I personally think some white women are beautiful. Of course, only certain ones who are petite and cute. However, I don't think white women would make a good match with most Asian men. Especially after hearing from fellow white men talking about how white women are manly and scary.
The institution of the taboo against white mothers having children with black fathers was integral to the creation of hereditary slavery. Racism seems to come to a full stop for most whites when they encounter a white mother's child of color. Some psychological bedrock of humanity is struck and the objectification crumbles. Entire white communities could

I believe that the answer from Mr. Bourne was written with good intentions. From reading his post history, I can see that he doesn't really believe in the idea that race, by itself, is a significant factor in dating and relationships and sexuality. However, in the real world,
In 1967, when miscegenation laws were overturned in the US 3% of all newlyweds were married to someone of a difference race or ethnicity. Since that time Interracial marriages have climbed steadily. By 1980, the number doubled to 7% and by 2015 the number has risen to 17%.Race is a
Assuming you mean Asian people from Asia, and not someone you'd find living in the U.S. necessarily.Because in Asian culture they believe, and it might be true, that white people, or westerners as a whole, are more sexually promiscuous. So, there's a term in south Korea, some people use it, some don't.
Why does Hollywood frequently have Asian female and white male couples, but almost never Asian male and white female couples? Even Asian female and Asian male couples are rarely shown.
it is the after effect of the yellow peril which made whites afraid of asians, and in order to ease the mind of the masses they made asians weak.also Asians are only 5% of the USA a very very small minnority even compared to other minnorities like blacks and latinos. however Asians and latinos are less likely to
There's many reasons.Racism - It's possible some Asian women are racist and see other races as inferior except whites.Lack of demand - It's also because minorities don't seem to demand Asian women. If you don't tell Asian women that you're looking for them,

Thanks for the A2A.First off, going by your description, I don't think your case is a ‘bias against' (which suggests racism) but rather it should be called a misconception. You were not discriminated against or devoid of any rights or opportunities.To answer your question, yes
Why might a black woman feel offended when a white woman dates a black man? Why do white women sometimes get dirty looks from some black women when seen with her black boyfriend?
She would never feel it because it does not happen. I think these couples only HOPE it happens because they are always together for the wrong reason. No they feel relieved or nothing at all. Because that White women got the bottom of the barrel. She will most likely end

Disclaimer: this is not a racist question. The modern human is homo sapiens, so are the different races simply sub-species? Are there any other species in the animal kingdom that have the equivalent of "races"?
No the different races aren't sub-species. The distinctions we currently make in regard to race aren't actually different enough to be considered as separate races from a biological standpoint.Race (human categorization) - Wikipedia explains:Modern scholarship regards race as a social

We aren't a rational species. We are capable of rationality, but our brains are still hardwired to prioritise knee jerk, primal, emotional responses to ensure our survival at the merest hint of a threat. Before processing anything rationally it has to pass through a kind of emotional filter.
None. Every country has been influenced by either Western colonization or Western view displayed in all forms of media. A black person will meet trouble in any so call "civilized" country (European, American, Asian) no matter their wealth or social mingling. In a non-white country (South America, North Africa,

Very hard to estimate... but I've heard some shocking stories about Korea..... and my first-hand experience of India only reinforced my impression of their obsession with light skin..... most Indians are very dark-skinned... but no sign of them in the media as leading actors or even newsreaders...
Race has no scientific basis, appears to be a cultural production, and doesn't have an agreed upon definition. It doesn't match genetics, evolution, or population dynamics. Race had been heavily studied by scientists but the results are much less exciting than many think and essentially useless for general understanding (it is complicated).
