This is a followup to my previous post where I pointed out that interracial couples in which the man is white and the woman Asian are pretty common in the United States.
I guesstimate that about 20% of Asian women prefer to date white men. For example, I once dated an Asian woman who said that she only dates white men.
Some people try to explain why white men prefer Asian women, but I don't think that line if inquiry yields anything but mostly bogus generalizations. If white men have no preference for white or Asian women, but 20% of Asian women have a clear preference for white men, then that's all that's needed to explain the mixed race couples.
I noted in my last post that Asian women who like white men often have a preference for men who are educated, introverted, and have stable careers (often in IT). White women don't have a preference for this type of man, so a man who fits this category will have better luck with Asian women and this is probably the real reason for why many white men are involved in an interracial relationships.
Asian men are hurt the most by interracial dating. Very few white women are interested in dating Asian men, and with 20% of Asian women not interested in them either, many Asian men in the United States are doomed to bachelorhood.
