Asians dating outside their race
I’ve always held to the belief that we don’t owe anyone an explanation for whom we choose to date.If an Asian girl doesn’t want to date Asian guys, that’s her prerogative.Still, that doesn’t change the fact that, assuming is any reflection of the general population of my city, at least one out of every three Asian women I meet has already excluded me from her dating pool.I mean, I’d understand if I’d done something stupid to get myself banned from the pool (like, say, getting sloppy drunk and peeing into the water).Interracial marriage was even illegal in at least 15 U. As the education and income gaps between racial and ethnic groups shrank, so did the social distance between them. Supreme Court ruled that laws prohibiting interracial marriages were unconstitutional in 1967, a reported 72 percent of southern white Americans and 42 percent of northern whites said they supported an outright ban on interracial relationships.Older Americans are not as tolerant: About 55 percent of those ages 50 to 64 and just 38 percent of those 65 or older said they would not mind if a family member married someone of another race.
In case you aren’t hip on your semi-offensive urban speak, a Twinkie is an Asian who acts white—that is, yellow on the outside, but white on the inside.(August 2010) When Ann Dunham, a white woman, married a black African student, Barack Obama Sr., in 1961, marriage between white and black Americans was rare. In 2010, with Barack Obama Jr., in the White House, attitudes toward interracial dating and marriage are very different.Less than 3 percent of all marriages were interracial in 1960, and the public generally disapproved of such unions. Not surprisingly, this transformation is most evident among young people.That’s why I decided to verify my suspicions by turning to the ultimate dating petri dish: On Match, people can publicly list every ethnicity they’re willing to date. So, I enlisted the help of a programmer friend who wrote a piece of computer code to scour these profiles and collect the data. Not only did the code fail to collect the data, it proceeded to send “winks” on my behalf to 18 of these women.
