Bitter Asian Man

New York Magazine has a long article whose themes won't be unfamiliar to readers of my 1997 essay Is Love Colorblind? 
Paper Tigers 
What happens to all the Asian-American overachievers when the test-taking ends? 
By Wesley Yang

(The illustration is not from the article, but from the sadly missed Bitter Asian Men website of yore.)

Yang complains that while years of test prep help East Asian guys get prestigious credentials, then after schooling they're not getting enough blondes and CEO jobs. He recommends, reasonably, that Asian guys study Game and other self-help techniques. (The Successful White American Executive / Salesman personality that Yang envies was honed by generations of self-improvement efforts, from Ben Franklin's Autobiography and Ralph Waldo Emerson's lecture tours through Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People.)

Yang concludes:
And though the debate [Amy Chua] sparked about Asian-American life has been of questionable value, we will need more people with the same kind of defiance, willing to push themselves into the spotlight and to make some noise, to beat people up, to seduce women, to make mistakes, to become entrepreneurs, to stop doggedly pursuing official paper emblems attesting to their worthiness, to stop thinking those scraps of paper will secure anyone’s happiness, and to dare to be interesting.

Okay, there are a lot of interesting suggestions here. Yet, in an article on racial conflict in a national magazine, could we go a little easier on the "beat people up" recommendation? I realize this New York Magazine article is suggesting beating up only white people, not anybody who isn't supposed to get beaten up, so that's okay. But, still ...

I'm sure they didn't mean "beat [people in general] up". Acceptable targets are assumed.

there will never be Asian male solidarity for the simple reason that Asian males don't even like each other.

How can the Right best exploit Bitter Asian Men for political gain? I know it's a cold thing to say, but the other side thinks this way all the time.


Are they more likely to become haters of White people and traditional America because of these feelings? I can see that.

Here's a heartfelt response to the NY mag piece from the highly credentialed author of the "Ask a Korean" blog. Correctly pointing out that the vast majority of people who really try to radically "rebel" wind up making themselves and their families miserable. And that most great innovators and artists in fact have a lot in common with the dogged credentialists, especially as regards work ethic.

There are not enough prestige, high paying jobs for all the high scoring test takers! A revolution of some sorts will take place in the future but only if there is group cohesion.

Pew Research Center Study on new marriages in 2008

http://pewsocialtrends.org/assets/pdf/755-marrying-out.pdf

91% of white women who got married in 2008 married a white man. 5% married a Hispanic man. 2% married a black man. 1% married an Asian man.

91% of white men who got married in 2008 married a white woman. 4% married a Hispanic woman. 2% married an Asian woman. 1% married a black woman.

White Women Value Ethnicity Over Income in a Mate:

http://blogs.discovermagazine.com/gnxp/2010/10/female-race-consciousness-as-prudence/

The results are striking. An African-American man would have to earn $154,000 more than a white man in order for a white woman to prefer him. A Hispanic man would need to earn $77,000 more than a white man, an Asian man would need, remarkably, an additional $247,000 in additional annual income.

Of course, this doesn't take into account all the race-mixing that goes on before marriage. But something tells me that Asians aren't doing too good there either.

I think Asian men should take Whiskey's advice and 'thug it up.' Just like this guy:

High IQ is more likely to repel women than attract them. No attractive girl cares about your advanced engineering degree. What they care about is social status, confidence and the aura of a bad boy.

This is a blog written by a bitter white man anxious about the declining place of white males. He has plenty of bitter white male supporters who are dishonest about masculinity.

There is no Asian-white racial gap when it comes to intermarriage. There is a cultural gap. American born Asians of both genders intermarry at the same rates. This is apparent based on how Japanese American men marry white women at the same rate Japanese American women do.

Statistics for marriages in 2008: 41.7% of US-born Asian American men marry outside compared to 50.8% of US-born Asian American women marrying outside.

Source: http://pewsocialtrends.org/files/2010/10/755-marrying-out.pdf

I also notice black male/white female relationships tend to be viewed as the products of coercion. Black men are always described as aggressive harassers of white women rather than charmers.

It comes down to how thoroughly beta this blog is. Many white men here are losers and need to inflate some fantasy of white male status.

It's too bad for them, there are just not many Asian dudes who are physical specimens, and as a consequence they lack self confidence. There is one native born Asian-American player in the NBA, and he is apparently the first one in 50 years and he is a bench warmer on Golden State and I believe one in the entire NFL and he is a backup OT for Buffalo. That's not many considering how many East Asians are in the US, particularly if you consider how many Polynesian guys play in the NFL despite the fact that the combined Polynesian populations in the US are much smaller than even some Asian groups considered separately.

The NBA is 10% white American which is pretty low.

Just out of curiosity:

Asians tend to get annoyed when you can't tell Chinese, Japanese and Korean people apart.

However, in the early 20th Century anti-Korean pogroms in Japan many native Japanese were lynched after being mistaken for Koreans.

Does this mean that Asians also can't tell each other apart?

Yeah, considering the huge number of out-of-wedlock births, 'experimentation' by young girls and the fact that black men are almost always deadbeat dads who run a mile at the first sign of pregnancy, those stats probably don't truly reflect what's going on out there.

I have a great idea. Maybe Satoshi Kanazawa can negotiate a deal with black women where they donate their excesses testosterone to be injected into young Asian boys who might then grow taller, bigger, and hung-ier.

Bill said...

Well, the counterparts to the Asian American overachievers exist in the motherland as well, and have the same problems there.

My Chinese friends are perfectly happy with their status and options. In fact, one of them sent me a nice photo of himself posing with Paddy Harrington at some recent Shanghai Open. he looked perfectly suave and self-assured. He always calls me before coming to Seattle, and we go around town, stopping at various golf stores so he can stock up on the latest equipment (it's actually cheaper here).

However, the pudgy nerds have a very difficult time meeting pretty girls, who are admittedly quite ruthless about their standards in men in China. The problem is that a lot of the Asians in the US take a tack that virtually guarantees their sons will be what the Chinese refer to as "shudaizi" (bookworm/nerd), whereas that is far from the norm back home. My take on it is that the parents assume that the only way they can compete with the gwailo is through (putatively) meritocratic measures, as they are outsiders.

It's not a terrible strategy, but the kids do tend to suffer. However, here in Seattle the third and fourth generation Chinese Americans I know are pretty comfortable in their own skin, and do fine. It's the FOBs that really go too far, but I appreciate them for putting the "skeer" into the SWPL professional-class white moms who are unable to effectively compete with them.

Whiskey said...

Yeah, if you are a reasonably attractive chick, racial preferences and hostility (from other men of other races) sails over you. A reasonably attractive White or Asian woman will have all sorts of guys, White, Black, Hispanic, Asian competing for her attention, mostly, in a social setting. They might try to beat up her boyfriend (which is generally effective btw) but most of the time in social settings a reasonably attractive young White/Asian woman does not get what a White or Asian guy gets in a "diverse" setting.

Asian guys following Tiger Mother advice might as well stake out 40 year old virgin status.

A little.

Steve needs to balance out all the Asian IQ and academia posts. There's a pattern here. 5 Asian IQ posts followed by 1 inadequate masculinity of Asian male post. It a regular pattern. For blacks it's 5 academic failing or 5 black crime posts followed up by a black athleticism post or black musical improvisation post.

It's just all part of the Isteve wash cycle.

If Asian boys had any creativity, they would come up with the concept of 'sexual justice'. Why should big-busted blonde bimbo babes offer their pleasure only to white studs and black studs? Where is sexual justice in all this? Shouldn't all men--no matter how ugly, short, dumb, poor, etc--have access to action with super-babes? It's a right, damn it!

And good-looking men should also give sexual pleasure to fat, ugly, digusting, and gross looking women. It's an entitlement, damn it!

And if good-looking women and men say no, they are elitist-racist-uglophobes.

Sexual equality! Sexual inclusion! Sexual diversity! No more disparate impact in the bedroom. Let's have affirmative action in sex.

Proposal: Good-looking women have to have sex with 10 ugly guys a year, and same goes for good-looking men with ugly gross girls.

More like bitter rice paddy men. Genghiz Khan seemed pretty bold, risk-taking, and fun-loving.

Chinese men could put out feelers for mail-order brides in Mongolia, or Chinese women could shack up with the descendants of shepherds in nearby Australia or New Zealand.

Whiskey said...

For a girl to get a reasonably attractive guy, all she needs is to be reasonably attractive. Often she can pull much hotter guys than her level of attractiveness, though she'll have to share. Tiger Mother raising for daughters is probably good overall, there's a career and money to fall back on when the sex is done.

For an Asian guy, or really any guy, what gets women is Extraversion, social dominance, social power, status, and the like. POWER POWER POWER! Women are drawn to it. All the credentialism doesn't matter for girls (it's being hot or not) or guys (its being powerful or not). Women like Amy Chua fundamentally do their sons a disservice by promoting lies about credentials = women. It just means a place in the cube farm until the job can be outsourced.

Forget about Asians, apply that to Beta White guys (about 90% of White guys) and you get far greater numbers because there are many more White guys than Asian guys in the US.

Oddly, Asians haven't enjoyed the benefits of the Revenge of the Nerds that you've talked about before.

Even in our nerds, we require some level of curiosity or risk-taking or enterprising, which could be as lowly as starting up a comic book / video game / horror movie convention.

Overall they seem like a brainier version of Mexicans (and so more law-abiding, etc.). No cultural dynamism. What's the picture of Asian neighborhood groups, charities, block parties, churches, etc.?

Like Mexicans, they don't seem as close-knit as blacks and Jews, but I don't have a solid impression on that.

Agnostic, modern Mongolia is a hell-hole. It has not participated at all in the East Asian economic upswing of the last few decades. It's not emerging in any sense whatsoever. If I had to guess, I'd put its mean IQ in the 85 to 90 range. Same for ethnic Kazakhs, Kyrgiz, etc. - Mongols' nomadic cousins, who lagged behind the rest of the USSR for as long as it existed and are now sleepily lagging behind all of the former Soviet successor states.

Does a pastoralist background make a population more aggressive? Probably. But there are a million other ingredients to success. On average, mixed Han-Mongolian individuals would lag behind the rest of China economically and intellectually.

And why is southern China more economically dynamic than the north anyway? Could it be because the Mongols and the Manchus didn't have as much of an effect on it as they did on the north?

The funny paradox of life is elitism suppresses certain hierarchies and populism opens up new hierarchies.

Consider intellectual elitism. It excludes the dumb and favors the smart. But it doesn't discriminate based on height, looks, athleticism, weight, etc. One could be as short and ugly as Jean-Paul Sartre and be a big star intellectual.

Now consider cultural populism. It is anti-elitist or mass culture for the people. So, one would think it is anti-hierarchical and open to everyone to participate and succeed in. After all, if most people are low-brow and if mass tastes are about low appetites, it would be inclusive of most people, right? Wrong. What are the primary appetites of the masses? Take professional wrestling and the NFL. Both are mass culture sports, but how many men can be pro wrestlers with huge muscles? How many men can make it into the NFL which only recruits the fastest, toughest, and strongest?
And consider sexual and culinary appetites. Since mass tastes are not refined, subtle, or nuanced, they favor the biggest boobs, the biggest penises, biggest asses, biggest burgers, sugariest pies and candies, loudest music, glitziest personalties, and etc.

Eventually, junk food restaurants come to dominate food culture and sexual expression--through music, movies, and porn--all turn into a case of 'I got the biggest boobs' and 'I got the biggest pud'. So, instead of ridding society of hierarchies, populism creates new hierarchies based on the crudest animal appetites. In its mass appeal, it is indeed popular with the masses. But mass culture is not about the people themselves but the EXTREME fantasies of the people who want the biggest, baddest, etc, etc.

And look at our blockbusters. It's EXTREME cinema. It has mass appeal, but it's so expensive, over-the-top, grandiose pop-fascist, and loud that only superrich and superskilled Hollywood execs and professionals can create them. Everyone else just mindlessly consumes them. And those movies have NOTHING to do with us, the real people.
It goes real people don't wanna be real. They wanna escape into the fantasy of extremism: power, looks, sexuality, charisma, etc.
This could be why Pasolini said consumerism is making little fascists out of everyone. By feeding on people's fantasies of animal pleasure, godlike power, and fame/glamour, it removes us away from our real livea and makes us wanna be Michael Vick or Britney Spears.

I guess same goes for money. Libertarian-conservatives argued that greater economic freedom for all would make all of us richer. But in fact, equal freedom for all means the smartest, most industrious, most cutthroat, and/or the best connected rise way above the rest. So, in the past 30 yrs, greater economic freedom hasn't made everyone rich. It made some grow richer and superricher while others ended up worse than before. Getting rid of state-enforced hierarchy opened up new hiearchies which turned out to be even more extreme.

One reason Yang doesn't get my sympathy is he complains of being excluded but his kind did their utmost to rise to a station from where they could exclude others. He wants to hang around and be accepted by the 'best people'.
It's not like he wanted to be part of the ordinary people and found himself excluded by them. He got excluded from an exclusive world he wanted to join.

So, his complaint comes down to "I busted my butt to join the exclusive club, but it won't have me."

This is all narcissistic BS. He should worry less about himself about other people. If he tries to be a good person and help others and do a good job, things will happen. Not everything he wants but enough to make his life meaningful. It's like the Stones song, You can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes you just might find just what you need.
He should go among poor Mexicans and try to teach them something or work as a doctor. He will be appreciated. And he might even find a nice senorita. If he thinks he's too good for poor Mexicans, then why shouldn't other groups feel they are too good for him?

To be sure, his complaint is useful to us in the sense it exposes the BS promise of equality and 'inclusion' in the white liberal community. In fact, it is a very exclusive world. The hell with swapples. We on the white right know that very well.

American born asian men actually marry out at a fairly high rate, like 40+ % or something. In fact, they marry out at a higher rate than Blacks.

Blacks are 10% of the population, but black men gets only 1~2% of the white women population. East Asians are only 2%, but they also get 1% of the white women.

Statistically, a white woman is actually more likely to marry Asian than Black. Don't know how you guys missed that one.

In conclusion: whine more please. Asians got nothing to whine about.

Whiskey, it depends on what the credentials are. An electrical engineer might have a more difficult time in obtaining a wife. But an MD won't. I know a few MDs and they all have high end wives even though none of them are what you would call 'alpha'. Women flock to anyone with 'MD' after their name.

So, is this an argument for ethnic groups staying apart? Wouldn't these hard-working intelligent Asian men be better off in an all Asian society? As it is in America, many of their women get poached off by Whites and others - and that is almost impossible to stop.

Traveller said...

"My initial impression is that white men should stop cherry-picking Asian women in exchange for a mutually beneficial alliance with Asian men."

This is a point.

Since white women have less and less value in the dating market, and in the marriage market. Many are brainwashed by feminists and liberals, and this is a trend.

A frequent suggestion for nice guys is to go after Asian girls (and maybe expat totally from Western countries), because they are more intelligent and feminine.

True or not, it seems the problem of Asian men is never faced. What do they think of white men getting "their" women? (pass me the quotes instead of a complex psychological evaluation)

Probably at present it is not so diffused phenomenon, but I do not think white women will change soon. I just hope there will be Asian girls for everyone...

And yes, as a white I could not care less if black thugs get all the white Western women, they are not meant to marry anyway.

Wes said...

Actually I am pretty sure all this creates hostility towards Whites on the part of Asian men - so any White guys gloating is probably not too smart.

I remember remarking to an Asian coworker about how I thought affirmative action in my work group was helping the women out more than they deserved. He was immediately unsympathetic and let me know it. He basically mocked my concern, said I was a crybaby, and then proceeded to tell me how he was the real victim in his own group (mostly of white males keeping him down).

Mind you he was a pretty good friend, but his reaction to my complaint was immediate and fierce - he had no time to listen to a white male raise concerns. I don't think this bodes well.

MD = $$$. Girls aren't interested in MDs until the schooling/residency is over and the money is pouring in, which is around age 30. At that point, most physicians are married or in a serious relationship.

The author has the key in his article as to why so many Asians hit the "bamboo ceiling" in the workplace (and it's not the white devil):

Like the music teacher said, “They were mediocre kids, but they got in because they were coached.”

Steve, you never posted the recent LA times article profiling two families in a good school district. The Asian family sending their kid to 6 (!) hours of tutoring a day and the Jewish/Mexican one making sure their child goes to museums in the summer instead of cram school. If it takes you 6 hours daily of tutoring to pass your APs and get into UCLA, are you really that smart? What happens in the workplace when you have to think outside the textbook and find creative solutions? Which doctor would you rather go to? The brilliant kid who could score 1600 on the SAT without even trying or the kid who had to go to years of cram school? For all their test scores, they are not that smart.

eh said...

He recommends, reasonably, that Asian guys study Game and other self-help techniques.

Anyone who finds that suggestion 'reasonable' has not met enough such "Asian guys".

And BTW, most Asian women who marry white men do not marry white men who have any idea of "Game".

On the other hand, Steve ignores than '42% of US-born Asian men are married to non-Asian women'. Or that Asian men in the US have the EXACT same marriage patterns as Hispanic men (low intermarriage for immigrants, high intermarriage for those born in the US).

In addition, the author of the NY Mag article (Wesley Yang) states himself that he never dated an Asian women and the first subject of the NY Mag article (former Chinese Stuyvesant student who wants to be writer) talks about going over to his white girlfriend's house during the holidays.

Of course, bitter oriental national cover stories never mention:
a. the epidemic of black on oriental crime - they need to play by the globalist script if they want airtime.
b. the possible suggestion that they might be happier back in asia or or with other orientals. ... so perhaps segregation ain't such a bad idea? Orientals can compete within their turf, us, in ours.

I live in brooklyn, under 30 i see far more orietnal male + white woman pairs than the reverse. My theory? The askanazi elite have basically eliminated white HETERO males from graduate schools/elite colleges (and the ones that do make it are in manahattan with hot whites, or as a second choice, oriental women) there is basically no other choice in their in groups.

As an acculturated Asian whose had some success with both white women and Asian women, I'll say that pretty much anything works with women. The point is in the trying.

Anger works, money works, shyness works, humor works, most of all persistence works. It may not work with your 1st choice or 2nd choice, but it will work eventually. 5th choice or 19th choice. You just have to be realistic.

It also helps not to be surrounded by white cock-block and underminers. Obviously you're dead if this is your situation. Some Asian men are dead in the water because this is all they've know their entire lives. Especially the ones who were adopted by socially unaware, dim-bulb white parents. Very sad. So you get one source of complainers.

Asian men will get their just desserts, just takes some time. There's no way Boston College beats Harvard in the long run. No way.

There are certain artists who, when they say "people", mean "men". Heinlein and Sorkin come to mind.

Anyway, this article doesn't purport to describe East Asian men, but rather Asian Americans. Which is really part of the problem--that when we went from Oriental, Indian, Filipino, and Pacific Islander to one size fits all Asian, we lost a lot of useful information.

Assuming the real title is or should be "Angry Chinese Guys Who Can't Get Laid", it's still way off. The author himself didn't grow up in a cocoon and clearly wasn't ever an overachiever. Neither are the other two examples (one is a poet, for god's sake). The most likely reason these guys didn't get laid is because they were not typically "Asian" and ignored their parents.

Way too focused on one subgroup of a subgroup of a subgroup (smart underachieving "losers" who happen to have had demanding Asian parents) for a piece that purports to describe all of Asian Americans. Even assuming the narrower target, it's still off base.

"there's like 2 million people in mongolia. they aren't producing anything."


http://www.aei.org/outlook/28731

"Mongolia. Possessed of abundant natural resources, including Asia's largest copper mine and enormous uranium deposits, Mongolia is also a stable, if emerging, democracy, lauded by President Bush on his 2005 visit. Charges of illicit deals benefiting the governing--formerly Communist--party and fears of ballot fraud that led to riots in the capital city of Ulan Bator after parliamentary elections earlier this spring provide some indications of the obstacles facing this infant democracy. Mongolia sits uneasily between Russia and China and is actively searching for help from the United States to maintain its economic and strategic independence. Over the past year, Russia has moved aggressively to make Mongolia an economic satellite. Raising oil prices through blackmail and seeking exclusive concessions have allowed Russia to carve out a significant role in Mongolia's economy.[7] But predominance goes to China, whose economic influence over Ulan Bator continues to grow as it has sought to build up its Central Asian presence.
Washington can naturally play the role of third neighbor to Mongolia, expanding trade and security relations (Mongolia has already dispatched forces to Iraq) in a bid to deny strategic control to either Moscow or Beijing. Equally important, in light of the riots after this year's parliamentary elections, America should commit public diplomacy resources, as well as economic and security incentives, to persuade Mongolians not to retreat from the liberal path they have been following for two decades. Promoting a free trade agreement between the United States and Mongolia would provide alternative markets and sources of investment for the Mongolians and would send a strong message about Washington's interests in the heart of Eurasia."

Statistics for marriages in 2008: 41.7% of US-born Asian American men marry outside compared to 50.8% of US-born Asian American women marrying outside.

I know. I know. Most couples in any sort of long term relationship are within a few points of each other in IQ. Asians and whites approximate in IQ. The average is a little higher among most north Asians, but the right and left bell curve fringes are more populated among whites.
Among married couples, the average is within 5 points. There is never, and I repeat, NEVER, going to be widespread intermarriage among blacks and whites such as there is among Asians and whites, no matter how much "integration" occurs. It isn't just IQ--it's style and culture, which never seem to change.

Because without White women making White baby boys with White men, there will be no more White men.

As it is in America, many of their women get poached off by Whites and others

Most of the poaching of Asian women is by White males, due to the fact that the Elite has increasingly monopolized White females and that White females have been pursuing careers, delaying marriage.

White women have been herded into being corporate concubines for the top private rent-seekers in the corporate boardrooms, and public bureaucracy concubines for the top public rent-seekers, and their instinct has been to try to land one of these top rent-seekers.

Asian females have acted as a kind of "safety valve" for White males who have been excluded as a result of increasing monopolization of White females. Without a "safety valve" the prospects for conflict and tension would be higher than it already is and could have jeopardized the monopolization of White females prematurely. It at least buys time during which prime females can be monopolized.

It's basically a Ponzi scheme, and like all Ponzi schemes it eventually approaches its limit as new "players" run out - in this case another group to replace the Asian females for the Asian males.

Thus, Affirmative Action must artificially raise the "effective IQs" of NAMs while depressing the effective IQs of Asains/Indians.

While the real IQ cannot be changed, AA policies, laws and practices in academia, government and business can enforce admissions, hiring, advancement, contracts and other preferences that are are otherwise the natural result of IQ and correlated diligence.

Since IQ disparaties are greater at the tail ends, the AA NAM preferences and Asian anti-preferences have to be stronger there. It seems like the SAT penalty reported by Eppenshade against Asians at Princeton was higher than a 1SD hit confirming this.

Here in San Jose, I also know about 30 some half-asian hapas, and the majority of them date Asian simply due to the proximity and the large ratio of Asians nearby.

The same goes for the hapas that live in Asia(I know... duh). If anything, a number of Asian male celebs tend to have a trophy half-Asian girlfriend these days.

So in essence, it is almost like the white is eventually being bred out once you reach areas of Asian population tipping point. This may be even more prevalent in the future as white population continues to fall while more and more Asians start moving into the west and snatching up real estate.

Sad really. Even in situations where whites are supposedly marginalizing others... they end up being marginalizing themselves even more. LOL.

From "Macho Minority: Masculinity and Ethnicity on the Edge of Tibet" by Hillman and Henfry, 2006:

Like the nomadic Mongols, the Tibetan people are frequently represented by a robust masculine image. (...)

The women viewed the Tibetans as bigger, taller, stronger, darker-skinned, rougher, more masculine, and more loyal than other men. Other expressions they applied to Tibetan men included “open-minded,” “generous,” “unpretentious,” and “decisive.” (...) Of the 18 female Han respondents, 16 thought that Tibetan men were more masculine than all other men, including other ethnic groups in China and foreign nationals.

(...) unexpectedly, instead of describing the masculine in reference to the feminine, Tibetan men repeatedly contrasted their masculinity with that of Han Chinese men. (...) All the Tibetan women we interviewed considered Tibetan men to be more masculine than men from other ethnic backgrounds.

I didn't get the impression that Yang was bitter. He seems more a person who's a little annoyed by stereotypes, and wants Asians to pursue a wider range of interests. Ragarding dating, second generation Asian men have an easier time baggin' white chicks if they grew up around whites, speak without an accent and have "white tastes". Same applies to black men.

I suppose it also depends on the setting. Upper middle class, city dwelling yuppie white women claim to love "nerds" so much but they don't generally go for Asian guys. These types prefer white yuppie men, or foreign white guys with model-like appearances.

The more typical suburban bred white woman also prefers white guys, but is probably open to dating an Asian.

Our different experiences may be generational. Several decades ago there were not so many Asians and most were into assimilation. Today that is not the case.

The hapas I know, including many in my extended family (both coasts and HI), are all married to whites and fully assimilated. Only two even dated Asians before marriage.

By Katie Nelson
Daily Cal Senior Staff Writer

Jesse Cheng officially announced his resignation from his position as the UC Student Regent on Monday, ending his term that had been marred by controversy.

Cheng's term took a contentious turn when he was arrested by Irvine police in November on suspicion of sexual battery. Accused of inappropriately touching a woman who only identified herself as "Laya" in order to protect her identity as a victim of an alleged sex crime, Cheng was later found responsible of a student conduct violation for sexual battery by the UC Irvine Student Conduct Office in March."

No. You had a handful of Spaniards and Portugese in South America, without European women. You had Arabs in Africa and the Middle East, for whom "marriage" meant concubinage. Certainly they have absorbed more negroid genes in the past 1,000 years according to genetic studies, and it doesn't seem to have done them much good. Even for them, things have changed. As far as Europe, the number of blacks who marry whites is still small and selective, as in a place like upper New England or the mid-West U.S. So no, there haven't been many "marriages" as we know them among blacks and whites. The relationships were intrinsically unequal wheverever there was slavery, even if the woman was free.
Two people who choose to live together for years on end, are going to have to be near in IQ. Given all the differences besides IQ, it isn't going to happen much. Indeed, one web site promoting interracial mixing--because they are "mulattos"--even noted a decrease in interracial marriages which the media distorts. I don't kow about that, but I think in most places where blacks and whites are both in large percentages and in close proximity (I'm thinking D.C., NY, Chicago) it's maxed out. Whites are not allowed to express displeasure about it, so nowadays, if blacks and whites don't get together for meaningful relationshps it cannot be blamed on the cruel world. It's because they don't want to be together. As Steve has pointed out, Hispanics married whites much more before the 90s, when the numbers became huger and more started to marry other Hispanics.

Funny how no one here can remember details when the situation calls for them. In any case, I was being facetious (or performing sceintific analysis, depending on who you ask.)

"No. You had a handful of Spaniards and Portugese in South America, without European women. You had Arabs in Africa and the Middle East, for whom "marriage" meant concubinage. Certainly they have absorbed more negroid genes in the past 1,000 years according to genetic studies, and it doesn't seem to have done them much good."

The first sentence is true and a well known fact. The statements that follow are a muddled assortment of your personal views, which you failed to substantiate. The term "Arabs", in the truest sense, applies to the native occupants of lower southwest Asia(namely modern day Oman, Saudia Arabia and Yemen) whom had intermixed with Africans for thousands of years prior to the founding of Islam, in the paleolithic, when marriage of any kind may or may not have been a human cultural norm.

Much later (after Islam was founded) this group intermarried with every people that they colonized, including East and North Africans, as well as Palestenians. Whether or not it did them much good is irrelevant. What matters is that it's factual.

"Even for them, things have changed. As far as Europe, the number of blacks who marry whites is still small and selective, as in a place like upper New England or the mid-West U.S. So no, there haven't been many "marriages" as we know them among blacks and whites. The relationships were intrinsically unequal wheverever there was slavery, even if the woman was free."

The number of blacks in Europe who marry whites is much higher than in New England and the Midwest U.S. In old England, for example, blacks intermarry with whites at a rate of nearly 50%. And prior to the 1960s, virtually all relationships among common men and women were intrinsically unequal.

"Two people who choose to live together for years on end, are going to have to be near in IQ."

This is probably true. But even so, there are more than a few whites with IQ scores on par with blacks.

"Given all the differences besides IQ, it isn't going to happen much."

It already has happened. For example, during the Moorish occupation of the Iberian Peninsula. That's why most white "Meds" have detectable African ancestry. I assume you think of the Moors as fellow "caucasians". But even granting you this, it's quite clear that they were mixed with, if not members of, the sub-saharan African race. It's also well known that the Greeks intermarried with Nubians and Ethiopians in times of yore. Presently Greeks, on avarage, carry about 5% African DNA while Sicilians carry about 10%.

"Steve has pointed out, Hispanics married whites much more before the 90s, when the numbers became huger and more started to marry other Hispanics."

This can be said for any groups of people in any society. The more populous a group becomes, the fewer they marry out. In terms of a global scale, this means that a more populous group (Asians) will marry out less than a less populous group (Blacks). Like it or not, that's how it is. If you want sources, holla.

That canard again. Have you ever been to Spain? Italy? The aquiline faces with their often smallish mouths and hooded eyes looking like profiles from Roman coins, are the antithesis of sub-Saharan Africans. and all due respect, but I have not seen a single Mafia don who looks anywhere near Negroid. At most, somewhat middle-eastern. The closest might be Al Capone, who according to his great-niece, had clear blue eyes.
Dienekes the Greek(http://dienekes.blogspot.com/) and others, including Racial Reality, have answered this ver well for years now. DNA has been done and does not show significant ancestry of black Africans. The "Moors" there were mostly Arabs and Persians, and not that many of them. White Spaniard did not mix with African Negros to any great extent.
Blacks apparently want so much to be part of the white race's record of achievement and of course their appearance. \
Stop with the fantasies. Spaniards do not look like Negroes. The face and body type of some of them resembles Arabs. Negroid--very rarely.

Marlo, your estimate comes from a not universally shared interpretation of uniparental markers. Moreover, the more recent autosomal DNA studies that survey many hundreds of thousands of markers across the whole genome consistently indicate low single digit percentages of Sub-Saharan admixture, at most.
