The original post made in 2013, several months before the spate of horrific incidents in 2014 that led to the launch of numerous articles on White male / Asian woman relationships.

As a Eurasian son of a Chinese woman from Hong Kong, and a white man from a rural state in the U.S., I have heard on several occasions from not only white women – but Asian women as well – that they did not want to date Asian men. So discouraging was this that I dropped all of my education and underwent a long period of suicidal behavior and extreme self harm in an attempt to look less Asian – and yet none of the women in my family sought to stop me.
