I have a tough time when the statistics claim that Asian men born or raised in the USA marry out at such high rates as suggested. The city I live in right now is Atlanta and I have never in my life seen or known an Asian or Indian with a White girl, like ever. Article suggests such marriages are common in some places. Any Americans want to chime in?

Many of them intermarry with other Asian races: Japanese-Korean, Chinese-Japanese, Korean-Chinese, etc

Here in California, it is not super common, but Asian-American men with a Caucasian female are seen. I attended school at UCLA and several of my Asian-American ex-classmates have wed Caucasian females.

What race of men do Caucasian females in Southern California typically marry and hook up with other than White men?

White women don't like the way some cultures treat women in general so that would be a reason for many not to get involved. I was leaving a store and witnessed an asian man screaming at the woman in the car with him. It was beyond me why she would tolerate that childish temper tantrum, but, she just sat there with eyes down and face forward.

Interesting you say that. I have a Black friend who told me a lot of White women love to chase after Black men that dress like rappers and are known to be abusive but yet don't give nearly as much attention to a well dressed Black men. Plus it seems like American men themselves can be pretty abusive with getting drunk and beating their wives. Yet when Asian men do it they are put in the spotlight and seen as misogynist.

I have a friend from the Philippines who met his white wife in Atlanta. Have you considered that it's not your race that makes you unsuccessful with women?

Probably becuase you live in Atlanta. I'm sure Atalnta has a moderate sized Asian population, but it is not the west coast. Plenty of Asian men/White female pairings on the west coast of the U.S. and Canada.

That being said Asian women probably have the highest rate of marrying someone of a different ethnic group.
