Asian black dating seeking senior site

It’s hard enough to find a person with whom you are completely compatible. Le is Visiting Assistant Professor in Sociology and Chair of the Asian American Studies Program at the University of Massachusetts – Amherst.

When you find that person, his/her race may be one consideration, but in the end I think most people would agree with me that love, a true appreciation of their similarities and differences, mutual respect, and genuine equality are the most important factors. He earned his Ph D from SUNY-Albany, where he wrote a dissertation analyzing assimilation patterns among APIA groups based on Census data, while simultaneously building — one of the WWW’s most highly regarded sites for news, views and reference information pertaining to Asian American communities in general and Vietnamese American communities in particular.

As I mentioned, these theories and criticisms can sound rather one-sided.

However painful or ingrating they may be, it is necessary for us to look at how both Asian American men and women can become the targets of objectification, and how this reinforces and perpetuates ethnic stereotypes against both.

Again, these are only preliminary conclusions using statistical analysis.

However, their study also finds that all Asian ethnic groups and husbands and wives are also more likely to marry another Asian (either within their own ethnic group or some other Asian ethnic group) than before, and that despite the increasing popularity of Asian intermarriage with Whites, the data show that these days Asian Americans are much more likely to marry another Asian than to marry a White person.

Similar in structure to their study, I have analyzed national data from the Census 2000 Supplemental Survey to construct the following table, which updates the results from 1990 to 2000 and represents data from the entire U. You should also note that because this research uses sample data, inherently there is a small degree of sampling error, which basically means that some of the proportions you see have a small margin of error. Although the numbers for intermarriage with Blacks and Hispanics/Latinos are low, Asians who are most likely to intermarry with Blacks are Japanese American husbands and Asian Indian wives, while Filipino Americans (husbands and wives) are most likely to intermarry with Hispanics/Latinos.

In other words, just because a proportion is listed as 0.0 (i.e., a Filipino husband and a Black wife, etc.) does not mean that there are zero examples of those marriages in the overall U. Those who are most likely to marry within their own ethnic group are Vietnamese Americans (husbands and wives) while Japanese Americans (husbands and wives) are most likely to marry another Asian American (outside their own ethnic group).

However, to many people, this theory sounds rather condescending since it presumes that the only reason why an Asian American would marry a White would be to fulfill a need for acceptance.

A nother related theory that may also sound a little patronizing is the belief that Asian Americans marry Whites to increase their social status, since Whites generally occupy the highest socio-cultural position in the U. In other words, even if a working-class Asian American marries another working-class White, her social status will still improve, compared to if she married someone else in her ethnic group or even another Asian.
