There are many similarities between Japan, an advanced post-industrial society, and the western countries in general.
The Economist concludes that women in Japan and other rich western countries are better educated, career minded, are financially independent and do not see the traditional family as the only way to lead a fulfilling life.
I almost lost my virginity at an early age to an African American girl.
She was my friends neighbor and they said she had a crush on meand was waiting for me. I had many hit on me and dated a couple for a short period.
I’ve received a fair amount of mail from my Asian and Indian friends about picking up white chicks.
In the UK, Sherry Fang, a 26-year-old British Chinese student, tells me she's had strangers say to her “you look just like his ex, she was also Chinese”, and argues it would be wholly inappropriate if she were black or Indian.At the outset, Asian men are far fewer in numbers than black or Latino men, which restricts their exposure, availability and access to white women.They are also culturally alien to white women in a way that black or Latino men are not.” He replied, “Look, I am a bus driver, women these days are highly educated and no one wants to marry an uneducated bus driver. Time and years are flying by and I want a family.” After all, a nice guy, who said he was not looking for a housewife who would cook for him, but someone who would be ready to have a family. Over 80% of Thai immigrants to Sweden are coming as a result of family reunions of Swedish men marrying Thai wives.The magazine The Economist published an article on 3rd September this year with the title, “I don´t”, describing how most Japanese who want to get married find it hard to accomplish their goal.Is my bus driver friend right in saying that more and more women are taking an education?Well, this may be entirely true of many prosperous western countries.A survey of 6,000 Internet dating profiles by Belinda Robnett and Cynthia Feliciano of the University of California, Irvine, reportedly found that "Asian males and black females are more highly excluded than their opposite sex counterparts." That means white American women would rather opt for black men than Asian males (including East Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi), although the latter tend to be more educated, more qualified, more gainfully employed and better placed in the social hierarchy than the average black male.Such social and romantic ostracism even by "fat white women with daddy issues" -- the sorts who go for black men according to standup comedian Jim Norton -- might seem incredulous to Asian men with an inflated ego to nurse.How does one explain this predicament of Asian men, who are raised to be proud and upright men of character with undisputed leadership roles assigned in the family and society?Even if I'm eminently unqualified to make sociological or cultural deductions, let me offer some possible clues.
