Pretty funny about white girls not knowing Asian dudes couldn't buy homes. Haha. And yes, like that "fact" would make Asian guys attractive to white girls??

If you look around you will see very few Asian guy / white girl pairings. There are some, but on the whole a lot more Asian girl / white guy pairings.

Don't see too many black girl/ Asian guy or black girl/white guy pairings either.

I'm half white and half Asian. I used to like white girls a bit more then Asian, but since i never spent much time with them I had little traction with them, I go on the road with least resistance. Now I am only "used" to Asian girls. I can relate way better. I know how they "tick". And I can "tock" along.

Wouldn't know what to do with a white girl if I had to spend a whole day with one. What's to talk about? No idea. I guess treat them exactly the same? Could do that, but there are subtle differences because of background, upbringing, their relatives. All sorts of factors that influence their life experience versus yours. WE are all in many ways pidgeon holed by race, like it or hate it.

I see a lot more white girl Asian guy pairings in Texas than in Taiwan, I also don't see quite as many Asian women white men pairings either.

I don't know why people keep bringing up these things. If you like someone, go after them, if they don't like you for any number of reasons, move on. It's a total waste of time generalizing a 2 whole groups of people who can have an infinite different numbers of views, background, cultures, experiences, lifestyle, ambition, ect

I think the problem is, race often affects whether or not someone you like will like you back. Say you like this girl, but you're of the wrong race, there's a very good chance that girl won't like you back for whatever reason. When determining whether discrimination has occurred or not you look for patterns. Unfortunately there's a very real pattern when it comes to dating and the person won't always realize that either.

Suppose you're an Asian guy in a town full of white girls, and none of them likes Asian. That gets very depressing.

Do you know how many girls Ive been with that never thought or even been with an Asian guy. I find it 90% of time if a girl is not into a certain race of man, it's not racism, they just never had that picture in their mind. It wasn't what they envisioned since they where young. Of course there are some that are racist that wont' but why even bother with something you can't change.

Isn't that exactly what that video said though? Something is up when a disproportionate percentage of young white women can't envision being with Asian men, while at the same time young white men have no trouble envisioning themselves being with Asian women.

It's true most people don't know about the horrible racist legislations the US had towards Asians, but negative stereotypes of Asian men left from that by-gone era are perpetuated by the media, often just to achieve "comedic effects."

Things are slowly improving, but for every Jin-Soo Kwon from Lost, we get 10 times more nameless kungfu wielding antagonists or ridiculous characters like Leslie Chow from Hangover or Ben Chang from Community. Not that I don't enjoy Ken Jeong's performances, but what he does on a regular basis on screen is a lot more ridiculous than most comedians have to sacrifice for their art, and he's a real life Medical Doctor for crying out loud.

No one is saying actual interactions can't change people's perceptions, but that doesn't mean the media should continue to go blameless for perpetuating stereotypes and biases towards Asians.
Don't confuse me with your reasonableness.

I am so tempted to put up some of my select Asian men pictures...

None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.

And in my experience for every girl that wont date Asian man simply because of race, there's one that loves kpop and Korean drama and like some Asian pop culture. I've have had my share of these girls and it's annoying. It's like no women, I don;t listen to Kpop or act like those guys in Korean drama lol
