We all know that there are plenty of black/white mixes in the country. But anyone out there come from a really bizarre mix that you would never find anywhere else?

Good friend of mine is black and filipino.

Yeah. Blasian seems to be rare, especially a Black woman and an Asian man.

According to a webpage that seems to be quite reliable, the percentage of US-raised _____ men who married US-raised Black women is:
Korean: 2.1%
Vietnamese: 1.3%
Philippine: 1.3%
Japanese: 0.7%
Asian Indian: 0.8%
Chinese: 0.5%

I don't know what year the data are based on though.


Also from the webpage, according to the US Census 2000, only 1% of unmarried Asian men lived with Black women, as opposed to 5.5% with Latino women, 26.5% with White women, and 63.4% with Asian women.

On the other hand, 5% of unmarried Asian women lived with Black men, 5.8% with Latino men, 39.7% with White men, and 45.2% with Asian men.


The page doesn't provide any data for homoseksual couples.

Actually that is a pretty common mix out here in California, I can name at least a dozen people I know personally who are that mix. A friend from high school I know had a child who is Mexican and Indian and I also know a person who is Mexican and Japanese. I myself am Mexican, Portuguese, and Hawaiian....not too bizarre but I doubt there is a large population of that mix. Come out to the Bay Area, you will see every mix possible! Another uncommon mix I can think of is my best friend who is Filipino and El Salvadorian, also my cousins are Filipino, Portuguese, Spanish, and Hawaiian, my brothers girlfriend is German and Mexican....I can go on like this forever =)

Is that a strange mix? There are so many Indians in Mexico that the term indio became almost derogatory. Happens all the time with the prominent minorities in a country: Negroes in the US back in the 60s and earlier, Turks in Germany, etc.

#1 I think he was referring to Indians from India, not indigenous people from Mexico.

#2 The term NEGROE isn't really an appropriate word anymore.

You do realize by "Indian" I meant India right? I haven't seen too many Mexicans with the last name Singh...have you?

My brother is Tongan(Polynesian) and his wife is Persian(Iranian).

My sister is Tongan and her husband is Greek. He was actually born there and has only been in the US for five or so years.

My younger sister is Tongan and is engaged to a Kenyan.

Would I have written such post if I had known that you meant a person from India? And how am I supposed to know that his/her last name is Singh?
Thanks anyway. That cleared things up for me.

There's really no such thing as an "odd mix" in Hawaii, most everyone is descended from ancestors from all over. People here often refer to their heritage as "chop suey".
