Sometimes, particularly for young Asian immigrant women, they are forced into marrying within their own ethnic group by family members and cultural traditions.
They also don’t point out the traditional patriarchy and sexism that still exists among many Asian men and their expectations that Asian women are merely their possessions and must obey their every command.
This very individual and personal aspect can sometimes produce a lot of public discussion. However, many people soon saw Asian intermarriage with Whites as a threat to American society. had formal laws on their books that prohibited non-Whites from marrying Whites.
Le, Asian-Nation One of the most public manifestations of race is the choice of one’s partner or spouse.
Studies consistently show that Asian Americans have the highest “outmarriage” rates — marrying someone else outside of their own ethnic group. Therefore, anti-miscegenation laws were passed that prohibited Asians from marrying Whites. Supreme Court rule that such laws were unconstitutional. As you can see, it’s only been in recent years that interracial marriages are relatively common in American society.
But as always, there’s more to the story than just the headline. History shows that these anti-miscegenation laws were very common in the U. The first such laws were passed in the 1600s to prevent freed Black slaves from marrying Whites. Of course, anti-miscegenation laws were part of a larger anti-Asian movement that eventually led to the Chinese Exclusion Act in 1882 and other restrictive regulations.
I may be wrong, but that type of thinking by males, whether they’re White, Asian, or whatever else, is not going to win the hearts of many women, Asian or otherwise.
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.One theory emphasizes that marrying a White person is the ultimate form of assimilation (see the article “Assimilation and Ethnic Identity” at Asian Nation) and signifies full acceptance by White society.Therefore, an Asian American may marry a White person because s/he (consciously or unconsciously) wants to be fully accepted in White society.The other issue that comes into play here is how Asian women are frequently fetishized.Historically, it was very common for Asian women to be portrayed as docile, subservient, exotic, mysterious, and/or seductive. Many Asian Americans argue that this cultural stereotype or fetish of Asian women is a large reason why many males (particularly White males) are attracted to Asian women.
My statistical analysis also suggests that among Asian American women, similar to men, those who are immigrants, those who live in one of those six states with large Asian communities, and those who turned 18 in 1985 or later are more likely to have a White husband, all other things being equal.
