Is there a growing trend towards Black women loving Asian men and vice versa?
Dating interracially for Asian men, especially dating Blacks, has been a huge social stigma for many years. My parents, shame to admit, don’t want me to date Black girls. It’s not their fault, my parents definitely have been brainwashed by the media and such to think that Black people are all gangsters and thugs. They’ve grown up in a traditional Chinese household where they value the purity of our bloodline. Being raised in the States, I am very open to dating women of all races, although I admit I still haven’t dated a Black girl.
This trend first came to my attention first when I noticed a few sprinklings of Asian male/Black female portrayals in Hollywood. I think the first one I’ve ever seen was in Rumble in the Bronx when Jackie's uncle married a Black woman. I remember thinking to myself, wow that looks really silly.
I remember seeing Jet Li and Aaliyah in Romeo Must Die and thinking that they looked really good together. It was really a pity that they didn't give them a kiss scene (apparently it got edited out). At the time, America just wasn't ready for all that interracial action, and more importantly, America just wasn't ready to see an Asian man as being sexual.
More recently there's been an Asian male/Black female couple in the TV series Flashforward. John Cho playing Demetri, gets together with Gabrielle Union, who played Zoey. What I really liked was that Gabrielle was smoking hot in that series. So not only did the Asian guy date outside of his race, he also dated a smoking hot amazing woman. What's interesting to note is that there might be more Asian men/Black women couples than Asian men/White women couples in Hollywood. Looks like Hollywood is trying to push us Asian men in this direction.
I'm sure there have been others, but I can't think of them at the top of my head right now. Do you know of more couplings that I missed? (Tell me in the comments box)
While it was interesting to see a good number of Asian male, Black female couples in Hollywood, I’ve also noticed it a lot while I’m browsing Youtube. A search for “I Love Asian Guys” produced a lot of results from black women. Here are some black women who have made videos talking about how they love the Asian boys.
Frankly, I’m loving this new trend. Black girls are hot and Asian guys don’t get enough love. Like I said before, I’ve never dated a Black girl, but I’m very open to the idea.
So what do you think about this new trend? Write it in the comments below.
