In fact, the most recent figures from 2.4 million users of Facebook dating apps showed a clear skew in preference for women of East Asian descent by men of all racial groups, except, ironically, Asian men.
As a Chinese, single woman in the UK - where I have rarely come across racism – my East Asian friends and I have encountered a fair share of men with telltale signs of yellow fever.
No, not the disease you can pick up when travelling to certain countries.
I'm talking about when Caucasian men develop an acute sexual preference for East Asian women – even becoming a fetish, for some.
Asian women are reserved and conservative, that's one of the things I like about them.
During the 1970s, an increased demand for copper and cobalt attracted Japanese investments in the mineral-rich southeastern region of Katanga Province.
Over a 10-year period, more than 1,000 Japanese miners relocated to the region, confined to a strictly male-only camp.
I recently did a survey on a group of black women regarding their reasons for not dating men who are not of color.
Through my findings it seems as though black women aren’t actually opposef to dating outside of their race.
