To Yohan: I don't think you understand the dynamics of being Asian American in the United States!; And, frankly, your rebuttal to rootless was ridiculous (no offense). To say that other Asian communities in America (besides Chinese Americans) don't discuss and complain about the racial imbalance of interracial marriages of Asian men, and complain about the treatment (and portrayal) of both Asian men and women in the country, is laughable.
Thanks for your reply, and please tell me, why is this 'laughable'.
I said many times, so far nobody could prove me wrong, that race issues are exaggerated in the USA.
This poster 'rootlesscosmopolitan' ignores many other aspects (and you too obviously) which are causing a 'imbalance' and blame for all and everything only 'race'.
What about for example 'religion' - your imbalance of interracial marriages would look very much differently, if you need not to consider the refusal of marriage between Asian Christians/Buddhists and Muslims and Hindus.
You are mixing up the term 'Asian American' - Who is 'Asian American'? Also a Pakistani and Indian is an 'Asian American', but of different race than a Korean American.
About Asian Americans - they are a small group in USA, and as said by me and others, they are not monolithic - they do not stick together, but are of different race, different religion, different language, they do not always like each other etc. Why do you blame white people for that?
You complain about what exactly?
About a shortage of 'Asian American women'? As I said already, this is NOT the fault of the 'white people' or 'black people', it is because of gender imbalance cultural issues/wrong family politics in the native countries of some 'Asian Americans', especially those of India and China. In these 2 countries alone about 60 million young women are missing, this is a fact - but this is not the fault of the white people in USA.
Feminism - a major problem to socialize for men in the Western world - is also to blame for creating problems of interracial marriages. What is with that?
So tell me what is your problem exactly? Give me clear examples, and not some strange reply like 'you are laughable' etc.
I am living as a white man since almost 4 decades among Asians in Japan, Thailand, Philippines and Malaysia, how come I am not 'discriminated'? How come that others, even in my own family and their friends, who are 'American Asians' of Japanese and Indian and Malay-Chinese origin are not discriminated?
There are clearly Asian Americans, black US-people, Muslims, female immigrants etc. etc. etc. who complain, but they cannot tell me why, they merely blame others for their problems. It seems everybody in USA is complaining about everything.
However there are also others, who are doing well - what about them?
