Although the Census Bureau aggregated the different Asian ethnic groups into a single "Asian" category, the results of this table basically correspond to the intermarriage results and show that Asian women are much more likely to be living with an opposite sex partner who is White, Black, or Latino, compared to Asian men.

In short, while some may find these statistics surprising, I can assure you that they are valid, accurate, and reliable.

At first glance, these statistics may seem rather unbelievable since they tend to show very high levels of intermarriages, especially among Koreans and Filipinos. S.-raised only represent less than 20% of all marriages involving Asian Americans.

Many readers will undoubtedly argue that these numbers do not correspond to their own personal experiences and observations. First, keep in mind that these numbers are only for marriages in which both spouses are U. Second, other related research shows that intermarriages are much more common outside of the major urban areas where most young Asian Americans lives.

Historically, it was very common for Asian women to be portrayed as docile, subservient, exotic, mysterious, and/or seductive.

These images can be traced back to Chinese prostitutes who were "imported" into the U. back in the 1800s and through the prevalence of "war brides" (Asian women marrying U. military servicemen) after World War 2, and these images are constantly reinforced and perpetuated in the media.

In Table 5.6 (page 49) of the study, they found that when it came to the dating preferences of White women, their first preference was to date a White man, which is not suprising nor uncommon.

But their data showed that the White women in the study would also consider dating men or color, but only if he made As I noted, these theories and criticisms can sound rather one-sided.

Most people would probably agree that viewing women as merely possessions to be controlled on the part of men, whether they're White, Asian, or whatever else, is not going to win the hearts of many women, Asian or otherwise.

Further, when the primary motivation for such cross-racial unions (involving whatever racial/ethnic combinations) include love, individual compatibility, and perhaps the desire to broaden the exposure and acceptance of Asian/Asian American culture to the rest of mainstream society, interracial dating and marriage can in fact be a very powerful force for greater acceptance and equality across racial/ethnic groups in American society.
