Black woman and asian dating

posted by | Leave a comment

Before I get to the heart of my response, perhaps I should preface it with a little information about myself.I am a 32 year old Korean American man who was adopted from South Korea when I was nine months old.My dad is of mixed European ancestry and self-identifies as White, and my mom is half Puerto Rican and half Italian and identifies as multi-racial (however, she acknowledges that she can oftentimes pass for White and as such does benefit from White privilege).

For instance, as a whole Asians are seen as small, quiet, and unassertive (which in a Western context are coded as feminine), whereas Black people are presented as big, loud, and physically dominant/imposing (which in turn are coded as masculine).

Thus while one could potentially make a case for a relationship between a Black man and an Asian woman (the ostensibly most masculine with the ostensibly most feminine), a potential relationship between an Asian man and Black woman may seem laughable if not inconceivable.

However, upon further interrogation we see how such an assessment is not just problematic, but entirely fallacious.

We are happily married now and just bought our first home together!

A BIG thank you to — we have put our trust into online dating and it worked out really well!
