Wish I could rep you for this as it is extremely well put!

Let me guess, you're the one black guy that Asian women aren't "curious" about, likes to bully and demean women, jealous of white men and have the arrogance to think you know how other people think.

Don't be angry or defensive now

African Americans are also the most stigmatized of any race. There's actually a "white flight" study that shows that white people move away once a neighborhood is comprised of a certain percentage of blacks; the same is not true of Asians, however, since people have never really thought of them as violent criminals who tank property values. Los Angeles, NYC, and Chicago all have large black populations. The Bay Area does not. Portland does not. Seattle does not. Those cities love to pat themselves on the back for their race-relations, but they've never really had to grapple with the issue of racism (i.e., dealing with black people) like other cities have. If you could take all of the black people in DC, Prince George's County, and Baltimore City and put them in the Bay Area, I guarantee you the picture would not be so rosy.
In case you also missed American History during high school, the quintessential black power movement that opposed the racial violence and discrimination you just mentioned was founded in the Bay Area. Do you really believe that the place where the Black Panthers were started didn't have racial tensions between blacks and whites? It's pretty obvious you know nothing about the Bay Area to make a comment like that. If you think race relations here were always rosy, pick up the history book you just mentioned. Look up Earl Warren and the KKK. Look up Brian Copeland and San Leandro. (Since you don't seem to know much about it) look up Huey P. Newton and the Black Panthers. And while you're at it, look up Cesar Chavez and UFW. Look up Japanese Internment. The Bay Area is not the way it is because there was never any conflict, it's the way it is because of the conflict...

You've betrayed your real underlying beliefs by saying he was "jealous of white men". It's as if saying "Ha ha ha, you can never have me, only white men have that privilege and your just jealous".

And its exactly the type of bizarre belief system that he's referring to. Your kinda proving his point.

While obviously I'm not an Asian girl, I can speak from knowing quite a few blasian kids that it's not that uncommon. And if you want to talk about having a pro-white complex, every race on the planet has one of those. It's the way history unfolded...

There was no "sarcasm" in that comment.

If so, prove it.

Its far less common than you would otherwise be led to believe by seeing a few "blasian" kids here and there.

Lots of women in the Bay Area seem to display this bizarre and irrational preference for white men. Particularly in SF. In many cases it doesn't matter how charismatic or rich you are.

Let me give an Asian Male perspective. To deny or pretend like Asian women don't chase after white men is silly and absurd. Don't give me the marriage stat either, as if marriage is the end all proof to the numbers. Dating wise? It's a HUGE amount of Asian Women and White Males. The problem is that it's overwhelmingly White males with Asian women. It's not like it goes both ways which is why it's a topic always discussed. I went to NYU and even back east it's a huge phenomenon and it's an open joke that Jewish men lust after Asian women and vice versa. My sister is one of these self hating women, along with most of her friends. Their excuse will be, Ohhh it's because they are not as shy as Asian men. Oh I like how tall they are etc. Then when you follow up with, oh really? So what about all the other groups of NON white men who may fit that category, i.e. Latinos, Blacks, etc etc. It's always ohhh I'm not attracted to them. They want to have hapa babies and show off their round eye white looking children to all their self hating friends. P.S. I'm dating an Asian woman before any of you say I'm jealous or something silly.

Good post.

I'd go so far as to guess that the biggest tensions in SF have shifted to being more BETWEEN "protected classes" than anything but that's not unique to SF.

Especially when you get to the younger generations it's not too hard to find people doing\saying things offensive to gays, blacks, asians etc. and the hiding behing the old "well I'm a minority so I can't be racist."

The Koreans I knew in college were incredibly racist....especially towards blacks...but that's not a shocker to anyone that has spent anytime in SK.

The FBI hate crime stats are interesting to look at also. It's just not your stereotypical skinhead or cletus mcwhitebread in a pickup anymore.
