White people is a racial classification specifier, used mostly and often exclusively for people of European descent. The term has at times been expanded to encompass certain persons of Middle Eastern, North African, and South Asian descent, persons who are often considered non-white in other contexts.
The usage of "white people" or a "white race" for a large group of mainly or exclusively European populations, defined by their light skin , among other characteristics, and contrasting with " black people ", Amerindians , and other " colored " people or " persons of color ", originated in the 17th century.
It was only during the 19th century that this vague category was transformed in a quasi-scientific system of race and skin color relations. The term " Caucasian " is sometimes used as a synonym for "white" in its racial sense and sometimes to refer to a larger racial category that includes white people among other groups. The concept of a unified white race did not achieve universal acceptance in Europe when it first came into use in the 17th century, or in the centuries afterward.
The strongest proponents of racialism in 20th-century Europe, Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany , regarded some European peoples such as Slavs as racially distinct from themselves.
Prior to the modern age, no European peoples regarded themselves as "white", but rather defined their race, ancestry, or ethnicity in terms of their nationality Greek, Roman, etc. Moreover, there is no accepted standard for determining the geographic barrier between white and non-white people.
Contemporary anthropologists and other scientists, while recognizing the reality of biological variation between different human populations, regard the concept of a "white race" as socially constructed. The concept of whiteness has particular resonance in racially diverse countries with large majority or minority populations of more or less mixed European ancestry: In much of the rest of Europe, the distinction between race and nationality is more blurred; when people are asked to describe their race or ancestry, they often describe it in terms of their nationality, not as "white" but as Polish, Hungarian, Russian, and so on.
Various social constructions of whiteness have been significant to national identity, public policy , religion , population statistics , racial segregation , affirmative action , white privilege , eugenics , racial marginalization , and racial quotas.
The term "white race" or "white people" entered the major European languages in the later 17th century, in the context of racialized slavery and unequal social status in the European colonies. Description of populations as "white" in reference to their skin color predates this notion and is occasionally found in Greco-Roman ethnography and other ancient or medieval sources, but these societies did not have any notion of a white, pan-European race.
Scholarship on race distinguishes the modern concept from pre-modern descriptions, which focused on physical complexion rather than race. According to anthropologist Nina Jablonski:. We know the Egyptians were not oblivious to skin color, however, because artists paid attention to it in their works of art, to the extent that the pigments at the time permitted.
The Ancient Egyptian New Kingdom funerary text known as the Book of Gates distinguishes "four groups" in a procession. These are the Egyptians , the Levantine and Canaanite peoples or "Asiatics", the " Nubians " and the "fair-skinned Libyans ". The assignment of positive and negative connotations of white and black to certain persons date to the very old age in a number of Indo-European languages , but these differences were not necessarily used in respect to skin colors.
Religious conversion was sometimes described figuratively as a change in skin color. Dee states "the Greeks do not describe themselves as 'white people'—or as anything else because they had no regular word in their color vocabulary for themselves. The term "white race" or "white people" entered the major European languages in the later 17th century, originating with the racialization of slavery at the time, in the context of the Atlantic slave trade  and the enslavement of indigenous peoples in the Spanish Empire.
According to historian Irene Silverblatt, "Race thinking […] made social categories into racial truths. Before the age of exploration, group differences were largely based on language, religion, and geography. Beginning in the s, Europeans began to develop what became known as "scientific racism," the attempt to construct a biological rather than cultural definition of race […] Whiteness, then, emerged as what we now call a "pan-ethnic" category, as a way of merging a variety of European ethnic populations into a single "race" […].
In the 16th and 17th centuries, "East Asian peoples were almost uniformly described as white, never as yellow. A three-part racial schema in color terms was used in seventeenth-century Latin America under Spanish rule.
Early appearances of white race or white people in the Oxford English Dictionary begin in the seventeenth century. Western studies of race and ethnicity in the 18th and 19th centuries developed into what would later be termed scientific racism. Prominent European scientists writing about human and natural difference included a white or west Eurasian race among a small set of human races and imputed physical, mental, or aesthetic superiority to this white category.
These ideas were discredited by twentieth-century scientists. In , Carl Linnaeus proposed what he considered to be natural taxonomic categories of the human species. He distinguished between Homo sapiens and Homo sapiens europaeus , and he later added four geographical subdivisions of humans: Although Linnaeus intended them as objective classifications, his descriptions of these groups included cultural patterns and derogatory stereotypes.
In , the naturalist Johann Friedrich Blumenbach asserted that "The white colour holds the first place, such as is that of most European peoples. The redness of the cheeks in this variety is almost peculiar to it: In the various editions of his On the Natural Variety of Mankind , he categorized humans into four or five races, largely built on Linnaeus' classifications.
But while, in , he had grouped into his "first and most important" race "Europe, Asia this side of the Ganges, and all the country situated to the north of the Amoor, together with that part of North America, which is nearest both in position and character of the inhabitants", he somewhat narrows his "Caucasian variety" in the third edition of his text, of In the question of color, he conduces a rather thorough enquire, considering also factors of diet and health , but ultimately believes that "climate, and the influence of the soil and the temperature, together with the mode of life, have the greatest influence".
Blumenbach argued that physical characteristics like skin color, cranial profile, etc. Like other monogenists , Blumenbach held to the " degenerative hypothesis " of racial origins. He claimed that Adam and Eve were Caucasian inhabitants of Asia,  and that other races came about by degeneration from environmental factors such as the sun and poor diet. He consistently believed that the degeneration could be reversed in a proper environmental control and that all contemporary forms of man could revert to the original Caucasian race.
During the period of the midth to midth century,  race scientists, including most physical anthropologists classified the world's populations into three, four, or five races , which, depending on the authority consulted, were further divided into various sub-races. During this period the Caucasian race , named after people of the North Caucasus Caucasus Mountains but extending to all Europeans, figured as one of these races, and was incorporated as a formal category of both scientific research and, in countries including the United States, social classification.
There was never any scholarly consensus on the delineation between the Caucasian race, including the populations of Europe, and the Mongoloid one, including the populations of East Asia. Coon included the populations native to all of Central and Northern Asia under the Caucasian label, while Thomas Henry Huxley classified the same populations as Mongoloid, and Lothrop Stoddard classified as " brown " most of the populations of the Middle East , North Africa and Central Asia, and counted as "white" only the European peoples and their descendants, as well as some populations in parts of Anatolia and the northern areas of Morocco, Algeria And Tunisia.
Though modern neo-nazis often invoke National Socialist iconography on behalf of white nationalism, National Socialist Germany repudiated the idea of a unified white race, instead promoting Nordicism. In National Socialist propaganda, Eastern European Slavs were often referred to as Untermensch , and the relatively under-developed status of Eastern European countries such as Poland and the USSR were attributed to the racial inferiority of their inhabitants.
Alastair Bonnett has stated that a strong "current of scientific research supports the theory that Europeans were but one expression of a wider racial group termed sometimes Caucasian ," a group that, Bonnett notes, would include not only Europeans, but also South Asians , North Africans , and even Northeast Africans such as Ethiopians.
Racial categories remain widely used in medical research, but this can create important problems. For example, researchers Raj Bhopal and Liam Donaldson opine that since white people are a heterogeneous group, the term white should therefore be abandoned as a classification for the purposes of epidemiology and health research, and identifications based on geographic origin and migration history be used instead.
Definitions of white have changed over the years, including the official definitions used in many countries, such as the United States and Brazil. Below are some census definitions of white, which may differ from the social definition of white within the same country.
The social definition has also been added where possible. Argentina , along with other areas of new settlement like Canada, Australia, New Zealand or the United States, is considered a country of immigrants where the vast majority originated from Europe. White people can be found in all areas of the country, but especially in the central-eastern region Pampas , the central-western region Cuyo , the southern region Patagonia and the north-eastern region Litoral.
White Argentines are mainly descendants of immigrants who came from Europe and the Middle East in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Smaller but significant numbers of immigrants include Germans, primarily Volga Germans from Russia , but also Germans from Germany, Switzerland, and Austria ; French which mainly came from the Occitania region of France; Portuguese , which already conformed an important community since colonial times; Slavic groups, most of which were Croats , Bosniaks , Poles , but also Ukrainians , Belarusians , Russians , Bulgarians , Serbs and Montenegrins ; Brits, mainly from England and Wales ; Irish who left from the Potato famine or British rule; Scandinavians from Sweden , Denmark, Finland , and Norway ; from the Ottoman Empire came mainly Armenians , and various Semitic peoples such as Syriacs - Assyrians , Maronites and Arabs from what are now of Lebanon and Syria.
Smaller waves of settlers from Australia and South Africa, and the United States can be traced in Argentine immigration records.
Argentina is home to the fifth largest Ashkenazi Jewish community in the world. See also History of the Jews in Argentina. By the s, after immigration rates peaked, over 30 percent of the country's population was from outside Argentina, and over half of Buenos Aires ' population was foreign-born.
Since the s, increasing immigration from bordering countries to the north especially from Bolivia and Paraguay , which have Amerindian and Mestizo majorities has lessened that majority somewhat. Criticism of the national census state that data has historically been collected using the category of national origin rather than race in Argentina, leading to undercounting Afro-Argentines and Mestizos.
The national census was the final year where blacks were included as a separate category before it was eliminated by the government. From , when the first British colony in Australia was founded, until the early 19th century, most immigrants to Australia were English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish convicts. These were augmented by small numbers of free settlers from the British Isles and other European countries. However, until the midth century, there were few restrictions on immigration, although members of ethnic minorities tended to be assimilated into the Anglo-Celtic populations.
People of many nationalities, including many non-white people, emigrated to Australia during the goldrushes of the s. However, the vast majority was still white and the goldrushes inspired the first racist activism and policy, directed mainly at Chinese people.
These policies became known as the " White Australia policy ", which was consolidated and enabled by the Immigration Restriction Act ,  but was never universally applied. Immigration inspectors were empowered to ask immigrants to take dictation from any European language as a test for admittance, a test used in practice to exclude people from Asia, Africa, and some European and South American countries, depending on the political climate.
Although they were not the prime targets of the policy, it was not until after World War II that large numbers of southern European and eastern European immigrants were admitted for the first time. In , all immigration restrictions based on race and geographic origin were officially terminated.
Australia enumerated its population by race between and , by racial-origin in and , and by self-declared ancestry alone since In , about 3, white German speaking Mennonites , who settled before in Canada and Russia, arrived in Belize. They consist of 3. Recent censuses in Brazil are conducted on the basis of self-identification. According to the Census, they totaled 91,, people, and made up White in Brazil is applied as a term to people of European descent, and Middle Easterners of all ethnicities.
The census shows a trend of fewer Brazilians of a different descent most likely mixed identifying as white people as their social status increases. Aside from Portuguese colonization, there were large waves of immigration from Southern, Western, Northern, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as the Balkans and the Middle East, in Brazil, the fourth largest number of the Americas just after the United States, Canada and Argentina, but these communities of European and Middle Eastern descent also mostly have members with some Subsaharan African or Amerindian ancestry nowadays since not only the white population of Portuguese origin which absorbed most of the descendants of the immigrants via intermarriage carried them, but interracial marriages and relationships in Brazil were common among most ethnic groups, all of them after two or three generations in the country, with many White Brazilian children being the offspring from Europeans or Middle Easterners and afrodescendant multiracials or persons of Amerindian or East Asian origin.
Non-Portuguese ancestry generally is associated to an image of "foreigner", "European", and as such contributed to achieving whiter social perceptions in the color scale of the Brazilian society, even if the person is noticeably of mixed origins.
In the results of Statistics Canada 's Canadian Census , white is one category in the population groups data variable, derived from data collected in question 19 the results of this question are also used to derive the visible minority groups variable.
In the Employment Equity Act, '"members of visible minorities" means persons, other than Aboriginal peoples, who are non-Caucasian in race or non-white in colour'. During colonial times in the 18th century, an important flux of emigrants from Spain populated Chile, mostly Basques, who vitalized the Chilean economy and rose rapidly in the social hierarchy and became the political elite that still dominates the country.
Chile was never an attractive place for European migrants in the 19th and 20th century simply because it was far from Europe and difficult to reach. The original arrival of Spaniards was the most radical change in demographics due to the arrival of Europeans in Chile,  since there was never a period of massive immigration, as happened in neighboring nations such as Argentina and Uruguay. However, it is undeniable that immigrants have played a major role in Chilean society.
This was because most of the migration occurred across the Atlantic before the construction of the Panama Canal. Europeans preferred to stay in countries closer to their homelands instead of taking the long trip through the Straits of Magellan or across the Andes.
After the failed liberal revolution of in the German states,   a significant German immigration took place, laying the foundation for the German-Chilean community. Another historically significant immigrant group is Croatian. The number of their descendants today is estimated to be , persons, the equivalent of 2. The census figures show how Colombians see themselves in terms of race.
Many Spanish began their explorations searching for gold, while others Spanish established themselves as leaders of the native social organizations teaching natives the Christian faith and the ways of their civilization.

Catholic priest would provide education for Native Americans that otherwise was unavailable. Within years after the first Spanish settlement, nearly 95 percent of all Native Americans in Colombia had died. The majority of the deaths of Native Americans were the cause of diseases such as measles and smallpox, which were spread by European settlers. Many Native Americans were also killed by armed conflicts with European settlers.
Between and , 8. It has been suggested that the present day incidence of business entrepreneurship in the region of Antioquia is attributable to the Basque immigration and Basque character traits. In December the United States government estimated that there were 4, Germans living in Colombia. The first and largest wave of immigration from the Middle East began around , and remained during the first two decades of the twentieth century.
A figure of 5,—10, from to may be reliable. After Barranquilla and Cartagena, Bogota stuck next to Cali, among cities with the largest number of Arabic-speaking representatives in Colombia in In , Costa Rica had an estimated population of 4,, White people in Cuba make up However, after the mass exodus resulting from the Cuban Revolution in , the number of white Cubans actually residing in Cuba diminished.
Also, one significant ethnic influx is derived from various Middle Eastern nations. Many Jews have also immigrated there, some of them Sephardic. However, after the Cuban revolution , due to a combination of factors, mainly mass exodus to Miami, United States, a drastic decrease in immigration, and interracial reproduction, Cuba's demography has changed.
As a result, those of complete European ancestry and those of pure African ancestry have decreased, the mulatto population has increased, and the Asian population has, for all intents and purposes, disappeared.
Estimates of the percentage of people of African descent in the Cuban population vary enormously, ranging from In , white Salvadorans were a minority ethnic group in El Salvador, accounting for Many young Germans married mestiza and indigenous Q'eqchi' women, which caused a gradual whitening.
There was also immigration of Belgians to Santo Tomas and this contributed to the mixture of black and mestiza women in that region. White Mexicans are Mexican citizens of predominantly European descent. Europeans began arriving in Mexico with the Spanish conquest of the Aztec Empire.
The descendants of the conquistadors , along with new arrivals from Spain, formed an elite but never a majority of the population.
Intermixing would produce a mestizo group which would become the majority by the time of Mexican War of Independence , but power remained firmly in the hands of the elite, called " criollo. While most of European or Caucasian migration into Mexico was Spanish during the colonial period, in the 19th and 20th centuries European and European derived populations from North and South America did immigrate to the country. However, at its height, the total immigrant population in Mexico never exceeded twenty percent of the total.
However, due to government restrictions, many of them left the country in the early 20th century. Mexico's northern regions have the greatest European population and admixture. In the northwest, the majority of the relatively small indigenous communities remain isolated from the rest of the population, and as for the northeast, the indigenous population was eliminated by early European settlers, becoming the region with the highest proportion of whites during the Spanish colonial period.
However, recent immigrants from southern Mexico have been changing, to some degree, its demographic trends. The White population of central Mexico, despite not being as numerous as in the north due to higher mixing, is ethnically more diverse, as there are large numbers of other European and Middle Eastern ethnic groups, aside from Spaniards.
This also results in non- Iberian surnames mostly French, German, Italian and Arab being more common in central Mexico, especially in the country's capital and in the state of Jalisco. James Cook claimed New Zealand for Britain on his arrival in The establishment of British colonies in Australia from and the boom in whaling and sealing in the Southern Ocean brought many Europeans to the vicinity of New Zealand.
Whalers and sealers were often itinerant and the first real settlers were missionaries and traders in the Bay of Islands area from Early visitors to New Zealand included whalers, sealers, missionaries, mariners, and merchants, attracted to natural resources in abundance. In the s, discovery of gold started a gold rush in Otago.
By more than , British and Irish settlers lived throughout New Zealand. The Otago Association actively recruited settlers from Scotland, creating a definite Scottish influence in that region, while the Canterbury Association recruited settlers from the south of England, creating a definite English influence over that region. In the s, the MP Julius Vogel borrowed millions of pounds from Britain to help fund capital development such as a nationwide rail system, lighthouses, ports and bridges, and encouraged mass migration from Britain.
Contrary to most other Caribbean places, Puerto Rico gradually became predominantly populated by European immigrants. Spanish settlement of Puerto Rico. In , one year after the U. S invaded and took control of the island, This was the result of granted land from Spain during the Real Cedula de Gracias de Royal Decree of Graces of , which allowed European Catholics to settle in the island with a certain amount of free land.
Between and , the census questionnaire in Puerto Rico did not ask about race or color. However, the census included a racial self-identification question in Puerto Rico and, for the first time in since , allowed respondents to choose more than one racial category to indicate mixed ancestry.
With few variations, the census of Puerto Rico used the same questionnaire as in the U. According to census reports, [ which? White Hollanders first arrived in South Africa around Although these early Afrikaners represented various nationalities, including German peasants and French Huguenots , the community retained a thoroughly Dutch character.
The first British immigrants numbered about 4, and were introduced in They represented groups from England , Ireland , Scotland , or Wales and were typically more literate than the Dutch. Both Afrikaners and English have been politically dominant in South Africa during the past; due to the controversial racial order under apartheid , the nation's predominantly Afrikaner government became a target of condemnation by other African states and the site of considerable dissension between and Before the Industrial Revolutions in Europe whiteness may have been associated with social status.
Aristocrats may have had less exposure to the sun and therefore a pale complexion may have been associated with status and wealth. Whiteness therefore retained a meaning associated with social status for the time being. And during the 19th century, when the British Empire was at its peak, many of the bourgeoisie and aristocracy developed extremely chauvinistic attitudes to those of lower social rank.
Edward Lhuyd discovered that Welsh , Gaelic , Cornish and Breton are all part of the same language family, which he called " Celtic ", and were distinct from the Germanic English; this can be seen in context with 19th-century romantic nationalism.
On the other hand, the discovery of Anglo-Saxon remains also led to a belief that the English were descended from a distinct Germanic lineage that was fundamentally and racially different from that of the Celts.
Early British anthropologists such as John Beddoe and Robert Knox emphasised this distinction, and it was common to find texts that claimed that Welsh, Irish and Scottish people are the descendants of the indigenous more "primitive" inhabitants of the islands, while the English are the descendants of a more advanced and recent "Germanic" migration.
Beddoe especially postulated that the Welsh and Irish people are closer to the Cro-Magnon , whom he also considered Africanoid , and it was common to find references to the swarthyness of the skin of peoples from the west of the islands, by comparison to the more pale skinned and blond English residing in the east. For example, Thomas Huxley 's On the Geographical Distribution of the Chief Modifications of Mankind described Irish, Scots and Welsh peoples as a mixture of melanochroi "dark colored" , and xanthochroi , while the English were "xanthochroi" "light colored".
Just as race reified whiteness in the colonies, so capitalism without social welfare reified whiteness with regards to social class in 19th-century Britain and Ireland; this social distinction of whiteness became, over time, associated with racial difference.
For example, George Sims in How the poor live wrote of "a dark continent that is within easy reach of the General Post Office […] the wild races who inhabit it will, I trust, gain public sympathy as easily as [other] savage tribes"  and Count Gobineau in The Inequality of Human Races wrote the following:.
Every social order is founded upon three social classes, each of which represents a racial variety: From the early s, Britain received a small-scale immigration of black people due to the African slave trade.
Today the Office for National Statistics uses the term white as an ethnic category. These classifications rely on individuals' self-identification, since it is recognised that ethnic identity is not an objective category. The cultural boundaries separating white Americans from other racial or ethnic categories are contested and always changing. Roediger of the University of Illinois , suggests that the construction of the white race in the United States was an effort to mentally distance slave owners from slaves.
According to John Tehranian , among those not considered white at some points in American history have been: The reasons for this were the arguments and theories about the Finns originally being of Mongolian instead of "native" European origin due to the Finnish language belonging to the Uralic and not the Indo-European language family. During American history, the process of officially being defined as white by law often came about in court disputes over pursuit of citizenship.
The Immigration Act of offered naturalization only to "any alien, being a free white person". By , courts had vindicated a "common-knowledge" standard, concluding that "scientific evidence" was incoherent. Legal scholar John Tehranian argues that in reality this was a "performance-based" standard, relating to religious practices, education, intermarriage and a community's role in the United States.
In , the Supreme Court decided in United States v. Bhagat Singh Thind that people of Indian descent were not white men, and thus not eligible to citizenship.
Cartozian , an Armenian immigrant successfully argued and the Supreme Court agreed that his nationality was white in contradistinction to other people of the Near East—Kurds, Turks, and Arabs in particular—on the basis of their Christian religious traditions.
Still today the relationship between some ethnic groups and whiteness remains complex. In particular, some Jewish and Arab individuals both self-identify and are considered as part of the White American racial category, but others with the same ancestry feel they are not white nor are they perceived as white by American society. Census definition includes as white "a person having origins in any of Europe , the Middle East or North Africa.
Stuckert, member of the Department of Sociology and Anthropology at Ohio State University , has poignantly stated that today the majority of the descendants of African slaves are white. The "one drop rule"—that a person with any amount of known African ancestry however small or invisible is not white—is a classification that was used in parts of the United States.
Ferguson , a Supreme Court decision that upheld the concept of racial segregation by accepting a " separate but equal " argument. The set of laws was finally declared unconstitutional in , when the Supreme Court ruled on anti-miscegenation laws while hearing Loving v. Virginia , which also found that Virginia's Racial Integrity Act of was unconstitutional.
The one drop rule attempted to create a bifurcated system of either black or white regardless of a person's physical appearance, but sometimes failed as people with African ancestry sometimes passed as "white", as noted above. This contrasts with the more flexible social structures present in Latin America derived from the Spanish colonial era casta system where there were less clear-cut divisions between various ethnicities.
As a result of centuries of having children with white people, the majority of African Americans have some European admixture,  and many white people also have African ancestry. The peculiarity of the one drop rule may be illustrated by the case of singer Mariah Carey , who was publicly called "another white girl trying to sing black", but in an interview with Larry King , responded that—despite her physical appearance and the fact that she was raised primarily by her white mother—due to the one drop rule she did not "feel white".
Uruguayans and Argentines share closely related demographic ties. Different estimates state that Uruguay's population of 3. According to the National Population and Housing Census, Nearly half a million European immigrants, mostly from Spain as a consequence of the Spanish Civil War , Italy and Portugal, entered the country during and after World War II, attracted by a prosperous, rapidly developing country where educated and skilled immigrants were welcomed.
Spaniards were introduced into Venezuela during the colonial period. Until the last years of World War II, a large part of the European immigrants to Venezuela came from the Canary Islands, and its cultural impact was significant, influencing the development of Castilian in the country, its gastronomy and customs.
With the beginning of oil operations during the first decades of the 20th century, citizens and companies from the United States, United Kingdom and Netherlands established themselves in Venezuela. Later, in the middle of the century, there was a new wave of originating immigrants from Spain mainly from Galicia, Andalucia and the Basque Country , Italy mainly from southern Italy and Venice and Portugal from Madeira and new immigrants from Germany , France , England , Croatia , Netherlands , the Middle East and other European countries, among others, animated simultaneously by the program of immigration and colonization implanted by the government.

Yes, there will be more information on the problems with supplements in my forthcoming book: Healing Well , due out late or early If we could put vitamins and minerals into pills there would be no problem, but we can't.
What we get from pills is partial synthetic replicas of what we need, this further stress us, rather than helping us. Directions for making them are in all my books. A quart of nettle infusion contains mg of calcium for instance!! No supplement can come close to that. But a cup of nettle tea has little minerals, the tincture even less, and capsules almost none. The secret is using a full ounce of dried herb and brewing it for at least four hours.
My favorite infusions are nettle, comfrey leaf, oatstraw, and red clover. They are all very rich in vitamins and minerals. Vitamins are enzymes produced by living tissues.
We produce most of our own vitamins: When we eat whole grains, we make B vitamins. In the sun we make vitamin D. We must ingest vitamin C, but we need so little of it that that is very easy. And we get vitamin E from seeds and oils in our diet. It is in fact very rare for a person to be deficient in vitamins if they are eating a whole food diet. Yes, I know it is almost impossible to get brown rice in Japan, but keep looking, and eat those aduki beans and use lavish amounts of miso.
There is no scientific evidence that stress or pollution uses up vitamins despite the manufacturers claims to the contrary. Eat servings of cooked fruits and vegetables daily and you will be fine on vitamins. It has an appendix listing the best sources food and herbal of all needed nutrients.
Good luck, and yes, I would dump the pills. Calcium supplements can lead to kidney stones and other problems. Monday, November 19, Subject: Thank you so much for your personal reply to my question! It was very helpful and thought-provoking. There's so much information out there, coming from so many different mind-sets--even among approaches to herbalism I'm thinking here of your book Wise Woman Herbal Healing Wise , which I first read many years ago but still springs to my mind, with its vivid illustrations of the "heroic" approach to herbalism, for example.
Interestingly enough, you recommended that I toss the calcium supplements--which I just did, simply because they gave me such a terrible stomachache every time I took them!
I'm looking forward to seeing your new book, Healing Well. And I think I'll pick up a copy of your book on menopause for my mom and sneak a peek at the appendix myself! If you know of any short-term courses I could attend, could you recommend them to me? Even if I can't come now, I'd like to know just for future reference, and for on-going study!
I'm especially interested in experiencing and working with people I can read books anytime and anywhere, but applying what I've read is a different matter! Friday, November 02, 4: Hi, I was just reading your article at Demetria's "Green Tit", and I had a question about something you wrote: In either case, the effect seems to be triggered by the large amount of hormone-like substances found in this root.
When taken daily, these substances may be converted into progesterone, thus decreasing the possibility of conception.
My understanding was that there are components in dioscorea such as diosgenin that can be made into synthetic progesterone, but that this conversion process does not naturally happen in the body, it must be done in a lab. For that reason, taking wild yam in hopes to alter or affect hormone levels is useless. Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks for your note. The field of plants and hormones is expanding by leaps and bounds, but we are still far from understanding what happens in the body when we eat certain plants.
Of course, I mostly speak from experience, not only mine, but those of thousands of women over thousands of years. Many plants, especially large starchy roots, contain phytoestrogen and phytosterols. These substances are most definitely converted into hormones in the human body and numerous studies attest to it. They must, however, be fermented out of the plants by gut action and some people have too little gut flora to manage the job.
There is no progesterone, or any other hormone, in wild yam, but your body can make hormones out of it if it is taken internally. Which hormones is up to your body, so I may be wrong when I say progesterone will be the result. But there will be a strong effect on hormones. I certainly agree with you completely as far as external use is concerned. Sunday, November 04, Subject: She wanted to wait until after my period to check and see if it had changed or gone away.

I immediately bought your Breast Cancer? I think it is wonderful and have added a few things to my diet that weren't already there. I eat a good Nutritious and healthy diet as well as use herbs.
I know it would answer many of the questions I have and just can't remember. I was wandering about sheep sorrel and nursing is it safe? I am not quite ready to wean my 22 month old but know it may be something that could be a possibility. Could you give me your opinion on this situation? You aren't using Essiac are you? I though I made a pretty good case against it in my book. David Hoffman, director of the California School of Herbal Studies says the oxalic acid in sheep sorrel can accumulate in your kidneys and cause damage.
I would not recommend that anyone take sheep sorrel as a tea, nor would I consider it safe for a nursing women to ingest. If you want to eat some in your salad that would not be a problem. Remember, Nurse Cassie injected Essiac, she did not give it orally!!! Sunday, November 18, Subject: Sheep sorrel and Nursing. Thank you for responding. I am not taking the tea and did have my doubts about it. I did go to the general surgeon and She said the lump was nothing to worry about and it did not feel suspicious.
She said keep checking and she felt like I would know if there was something there I needed to be concerned with and to have it checked again in three months to be safe.
I am however still going to keep to the Breast Health diet, teas and tinctures. Saturday, November 10, Subject: I'm writing to tell you how much I appreciate you and your work.
I had been wanting to understand herbs for many years and your books were the first ones that made sense to me I started going on herb walks, meeting and loving plants, bringing home delicious nourishment I cannot begin to tell you how much the information you provided has affected me.
So many wonderful, magical experiences have resulted from walking these paths. Someday soon I'd love to share with you how much I've learned. I guess what I really want to ask you about is empowerment, making things happen. I read your bio and I was so moved by how much you have accomplished, by how you have created a life, a work, a world -- unique and powerful -- something done without "credentials", something not previously modeled in the modern world.
I guess this is where I feel stuck. I know that I am powerful, intelligent, compassionate, artistic, intuitive, that I can teach and heal, love and dance, I have cultivated awareness of nature, surrender to ecstasy, sharpened my intellectual skills, strengthened my muscles, learned to laugh and cry I feel that I could enter the world as you have and help to create the new paradigm, in fact, I know that it is so necessary for all of who see this need to stand up and make it happen, but I don't really do it.
I feel alone with it, I talk to my friends about it and they are friendly and try to be supportive, but not really there for it. I live on a houseboat anchored offshore Coconut Grove in Biscayne Bay, which is a lifestyle which contributes to helping me to feel more powerful, but often I feel a lack of kindred spirits I'm not finding companions because I'm not speaking up about who I am and what I want to do I'm not sure yet, I feel you out there, I don't feel the need to come do an apprenticeship, I just want to know if you have any advice about starting things: I have a vision actually of creating a floating, sailing center for healing and wisdom and I want to get started, I don't want to be alone in it, and I want to strengthen my belief in my ability to make it happen!
I have also been pretty self-destructive for a long time, because for so long I didn't understand that who I am is someone who is fantastic. So I often stop myself from acting because, you know, "I'm probably not good enough", "if people find out who I really am, they'll hate me", "I don't have what it takes" etc. What does such self-doubt have to do with nurturing my wholeness and helping others?
Why is it that if I know that I have something to offer, that I am going to allow such thoughts and feelings to allow me to hold back? Am I still trying to get back at everybody for the pain I believe they've caused me?
Is it really another version of the blame game? How can I get past all of this and allow myself to give and receive? I have seen enough by now to know that it isn't friendly, loving, or healing to be insecure. That as long as I feel unworthy and unlovable that I won't treat others very well either. So I know that I have to get beyond this if I'm going to do any really good. Thank you for reading this, Susun. If this sounds pretty self-indulgent, I'm sorry.
I really really really want to be part of bringing awareness of love healing wholeness back to the world. I know I have to start with myself. Many blessings to you and your tribe. My dear, your letter is worthy of a month long answer, actually a three month long answer and that may not even be enough. Of course you need to come and do an apprenticeship at least three months as this is exactly the work that you would do as an apprentice: For now, I would suggest you start a group that meets monthly.
A moon lodge, an herbal circle, a reading group. Set a specific day the first Friday evening of each month or the third Thursday or something like that and do it. Do not worry if no one comes. It is for you, after all, to learn that you can do something.
Sooner or later, someone will attend and it will grow from there. Try a number of things that you might like to do. Be willing to let them go if they do not work out or if you are unhappy. The path to success is strewn with failure, so get out there and fail. Everyone wants someone else to tell them what to do and how to live because they feel inadequate. Simple, safe remedies for pregnancy, childbirth, lactation, and newborns. Includes herbs for fertility and birth control.

Social standards will not change in China until someone makes an effort to educate people. My advice to Western women who want to date Chinese men, or other Asian men, is to do so in your own country or other Western countries. If you insist on looking for one in China, you might have to experience a lot of disappointment until you get lucky, at least until someone is brave enough to push China to bring its social and hygienic habits into the same stratosphere as Western countries.
In any relationships, particularly when one begins to spend any significant amount of time with each other, there are bound to be things, including personal habits, that begin to grate. I sincerely hope you have the opportunity and the potential to grow up and mature into a better person that is capable of seeing beyond the superficial or initial reaction and intolerance that so often dazzle and confuses our life in this modern era.
May be it is just begining foreign girl with chinese guy …. I was just welcomed in and treat like any other girl of any other ethnic origin would have been.
There are cultural differences, but I think the reason our relationship works so well is that there is a lot of give and take on both sides. I take on some of his cultural customs, and he takes on some of mine. Thanks for sharing your experience. It sounds like you have a perfect balance in your relationship. And to be together in Taiwan! Anyway, anyone would be stupid to reject people of any race out of hand.
Of course, just refer to Long Duk Dong from 16 Candles to see something shocking from just a little before my time. Feh, the point of a kung fu flick is to kick butt, not provide sentimental hogwash.
But anyway who cares? I am an ok dancer. Never danced much, but have some talent and pick up moves fast. Back home I am a mediocre player at best, but out here I live in China I fare pretty well against Europeans. But I met Germans who were chaos impersonated and the life of the party. My point is that generalizations and stereotypes come from somewhere. If you meet enough people within a group say, people from the same country , you start to have an idea of similar traits good and bad that a lot of these people have.
If enough people from your country meet enough people from the other country, these generalizations start forming stereotypes. Many of the stories confirm the stereotypes including the size one and others deny them including the size one.
In the end, stereotypes might give you an idea of traits that people from a certain place might have, but they cannot define an individual. Some of the stereotypes about the Chinese even contradict themselves! Think of the martial artist versus the nerdy guy. When two people in this world find each other and have a connection. All the life experience, culture, prejudices etc. But what happens later on is about the individual themselves and how they deal with them.
Sure, you need to learn the language and it takes time. But in China, I know people who have been here for years and years, speak fluent Chinese and barely have any Chinese friends. I remember going to a music festival here in Beijing once and seeing hundreds of cool Chinese people. I said to a friend: Something similar probably happens in Chinese communities overseas. Why should I have to teach someone how to act?
These are things he should learn as a child and no one should have to be the mother of a grown man. If an adult is doing things like these, he will never change because it is too late as those behaviors are ingrained deep inside him. There is nothing shallow, immature, or superficial about expecting a grown adult to have common decency. I went out with a Chinese guy once who spit on the floor at KFC.
I recoiled in disgust and he acted like nothing was wrong. I calmly explained that we were in a restaurant where people are eating and doing that was totally unacceptable. He said okay and then spit on the floor again less than three minutes later. I got up and walked out immediately.
These are the things that civilized people learn as children. It is not too much to ask for someone to have decent public manners. I hope you are not going to get all over-sensitive now and start lashing out at foreign countries, or foreign cultural standards, or something like that. The things I mention are a problem.
A very big problem. I hope the foreign women looking for Chinese men can find the Chinese men who do not do those behaviors. But it will not be easy. I know no one wants to talk about it. The only answer is a lot more education about manners and hygiene. True, not all Chinese guys spit, hock and do other disgusting things. But a lot of them do, here in China. If she really did go out on a date with a Chinese guy who did that, it indicates she is not contaminated by bad stereotypes and probably people were unfair to her.
I did notice an excess of political correctness here. But it is HUGE on a personal level. The hocking IS gross. Part of it, I think is a generational gap.
When I see the spitting etc. I rarely see the younger men doing it. Kindly do not attribute words to myself that are extrapolation and projection of your own personal sensitivity and level of maturity, irrespective of your age. My experience is that personal attraction and curiosity does the darndest things to people, often resulting in the unlikeliest of partnerships and friendships. She has a primness to her that I initially found endearing though occasionally insufferable, but which later mellowed as we dated since she and I came to appreciate our differing perspectives.
By contrast my ex-German girlfriend proved most tediously argumentative and overly politically, which while initially intellectual stimulating, became wearily frustrating especially when all I wanted was a simple cuddle after a long day.
And so on it goes. Of course not, for it reflected the formation process of my own preferences, yet conversely also the slow erosion of my prejudices as I learned to see people beyond the superficial and appreciate them for what they are and their potential. In all cases I was glad that I overcame my initial dislike and got to know every complex one of them better for what they are.
So the question is what prompted you to go out on a date with him in the first place? To clarify something, I have not said that ALL Chinese men publicly spit, hock, nose pick, butt dig, have stinky breath, smoke, shoot snot rockets, or cough without covering their mouths. I made it a point to say that not ALL do those things. But the sad truth is that MANY do those things, including a lot who are in their 20s and 30s. I guess they pick it up from older men because they do not know better.
For the record, I have even hung out with Western educated Chinese guys who did not do those things when they were in other countries, but reverted back to such behavior when they returned to China.
Give me a break! It is called will power. They are too lazy to control themselves or teach to others anything proper. This is not an attack on China either.
People know about the main stereotype of the French. Many folks in places like India are known for not being attentive to body odor. I am sure there are other areas in the world with stinky breath and other kinds of problems. But this blog is specifically about things that can keep Western women and Chinese men apart so I am addressing one of the biggest issues. Wanting all people in every country to have a basic standard of cleanliness and manners is not superficial. It is something that should be normally expected.
Please do not hide behind cultural differences because saying that is an excuse for not acting. All people with some education should teach those who do not know. If someone spits by your feet, speak up. If someone coughs in your face, speak up. SARS was a perfect opportunity for a mass education campaign to stamp out spitting, hocking, and uncovered coughing. A-H1-N1 is about to present another perfect opportunity. Will China step up and seize the initiative while the epidemic rages in full force?
Leave the excuses behind! I agree that, unfortunately, there are a lot of Chinese men with undesirable habits — spitting, smoking, hocking, etc. It certainly is a barrier to relationships. The many bad apples out there will often blind us to those one-in-a-million guys who really do exist in China.
I have met some extraordinary men in China — men who were more gentlemanly, gentle and caring than anyone I ever dated in the US and, I might add, men who do not smoke, spit, hock, have bad breath, or even drink. If I had decided that all men in China were disgusting, I would never have given myself the opportunity to know them, which would have been an incredible loss.
As for the change you mention — yes, it is important to demand change, and I hope China changes everyday. Yet keep in mind that China is a very large country with shockingly large gaps between the wealthy and poor.
And on the other hand, being wealthy in China can often be an obstacle to change. In some cases, these people even have no shame at all I have seen government officials and elites, all men, who once talked blatantly about their mistresses and lewd sexual behavior right in front of me, at the dinner table.
People in China need to reclaim a sense of shame regarding their behavior in public, on many levels. Everyone tells me to get a Chinese boyfriend, but in reality, it seems that very few are open to that idea.
Which is a shame, because I certainly am. Thanks for stopping by and posting a comment! Susan, The first and second comment are not correct at all. Good luck to you! May i just add one more point to what Susan had mentioned about Chinese men, a lot of us are good chef at home too: Food is a such important part of chinese culture that cooking is not just the responsibility of women.
I bet most of the chinese men feel the same about you. Grow up, you have a long way to go. When I was 22, moving to America was not an easy quest for me, I was considered skinny at lbs. I could not get most American girls to go on a date with me. My point is, people will always have their first impression from your outer appearance, and sometimes, you might just need to let them have it before they even get a chance to know the real you.
I can say from my personal experience, even after my transformation on my image the macho look , many white women still keep their distance from me. This is mostly because of the race issue. For some reason, more white men can easily accept Asian women than a white women can accept Asian men. I can accept racism but I refuse to believe Chinese men are less than western men in any way.
Not even handsome vs. If I could get a Chinese guy to make a move I would be so happy. Part of it is they seem intimidated. As to other expats guys! The second night I was in China, one guy asked me if I would date a Chinese guy and when I said yes, he accused me of having a fetish for small penises.
What about the rampant adultery? Not only is adultery fairly common, it seems almost socially accepted and mandated. Has this been a problem for any of the couples? Perhaps it also happens that plenty of racism in China exists toward foreigners living in the country. Can anyone explain it maybe they have already? Maybe, is it due to the lack Asian men presence in the media?
Re Andrea, the problem of rampant adultery is not true even though the things appeard. At least the mainstream culture can not accept it. These historical wounds still haunt many Chinese mentally. What Stan said is true, I believe most Chinese men have hard time to let women pick up their tab on a date. Casual dating with foreign girls is just not common in China, on top of that, i think basic communication can be another issue, how many foreign girls can speak fluent chinese and how many chinese men can speak fluent english in china?
This issue alone can eliminate almost majority of the potiential dates. I also think that bias against asian men do still exist which makes the matter even more complicated, because it becomes more than just about dating, it becomes a issue of race and chinese certainly do not take it lightly. On the mistress issue, I have to agree with Steven Chao. While I have come across some circles of men in China where mistresses are in the picture — these are often the powerful bosses, or officials, or men in high positions, usually 40, 50 years or older.
Not your typical guy, and certainly not the kind of guy most of us would end up dating or marrying anyway. Yes, this discussion is interesting. But I still think that the main obstacle here is how closed the Chinese society is. Because in the end it ends up playing a role in the language barrier as well. And, by not engaging very much with a lot of Chinese people, the mixing just becomes a bit more complicated.
I agree Chinese society is closed. But if this were the main reason why there are so few Chinese men dating or marrying foreign women, you would see the same pattern with Chinese women dating or marrying foreign men. Still, it is possible to overcome the barriers — and doing so largely depends on how you approach your experience in the country, and the kinds of experiences you have.
When I first came to China, I knew almost no Chinese — just a few survival phrases, and basic numbers. But I was curious about China, and interested to learn. In the process, I made some amazing Chinese friends, who spoke English and became my own teachers — teaching me about the culture around me. If you live in China as a foreigner, you always have the opportunity to have contact with the culture. Of course I meant my experience in China. You seem to put the blame on foreigners who stay in their comfort zones.
But these people still hang out with foreigners much more than with Chinese. Actually, we accept them as one of our own. So yes, I do put some of the blame on the Chinese society.
But I am not blind to our flaws and I did have a very good welcome when I lived in Germany. I apologize if I sounded as though I was putting so much blame on foreigners. I can understand where you are coming from, given your experience in Brazil, and observing foreigners integrating quite flawlessly into the culture.
You are right that it is not easy in China for foreigners. I too have had moments of alienation in China. And perhaps I am an anomaly — having family ties to the country brings me so much closer to it. If you put an effort into it I believe the Chinese society is pretty open. But I kind of have a good starting point: I live in a totally Chinese area in Beijing, no other westerners is living here. I have been very welcomed here. Yet, the great majority of their friends seems to be foreign.
It makes it much easier for a foreign guy to chat up a Chinese girl in a random social setting e. On the other hand, some Westerns girl would need a real connection to a guy to fall for him. That requires a lot of interaction. Point being, it just decreases the chances a western girl has of meeting those amazing Chinese guys out there.
This is a complex issue, and all factor raised play a role in each individual case. As it has been pointed out in other comments, some really have a problem with feeling superior to the Chinese. I think one of the reasons that western women are often thought to be rich, even when they are actually not, is because they are typically a lot more exposed to the consumerism that is dominant in western culture.
By that I mean they tend to spend their money more generously and liberally than their Chinese counterparts. Fresh-off-the-boat Chinese FOBs, e. And they expect their girlfriends maybe not girlfriends, but certainly their wives to be economically prudent, too.
I know for a fact that I would not be able to independently afford a marriage with any of a number of sorority girls that I know on this campus, even if I could secure the highest paying job available for a normal college graduate.
Another problem that I have encountered is religion. When I came to the states, I landed in a historically white fraternity in a state right in the Bible belt. Methodist, Baptist, Catholicism, Presbyterianism, Mennonite, etc. Even a Jewish professor tried pretty hard at one time to sell me his theology, and I thought Jews always kept their religion private from non-jews. A lot of protestant Christian groups on campus deliberately and actively target FOB Chinese students, which can be quite disturbing and annoying.
On the other hand, for a lot of people here, atheism is rather controversial, to say the least. So it just never worked out seriously with any girl of religious convictions. And those ladies who are sufficiently secularist are usually too smart to involve themselves with fraternity boys.
You say something about Western consumerism. I have to say that many a Westerners has been shocked about the materialism of China. About religion, that depends on the place. You have to understand the culture of the place you are in. I think one big reason you see so few Chinese men with foreign women is what that taxi driver alluded to.
At least that fear is what stops a lot of Chinese guys from trying a relationship with a foreign woman. Please keep up the great posts! Great to hear from another Western woman who has discovered the joys of marriage to a Chinese man! When you find the right guy, they really can make exceptional partners, for all of the qualities you described all fitting my husband as well. It said 27 percent of mixed marriages comprised of Chinese men and foreign women — up from a few years before that.
More than 60 percent said that it is normal to see mixed couples and 35 percent said that for a Chinese man it is very romantic to marry a foreign woman. The newspaper did not provide information as to the men women ratio among the more than 10, interviewed. Until several years ago 90 percent of the mixed couples were composed of a Chinese woman and a foreign man. Now the percentage of the unions of Chinese men and foreign women has increased to 25 percent of the total.
Unfortunately these marriages do not seem to stand the test of time and according to a poll carried out in Shanghai 60 percent of the mixed marriages celebrated in the period have ended with divorce. In the same period marriages in China increased by 2. Thanks for linking my blog! Yes, I am the one and the same Jessica who you corresponded with way back in … I guess it was ? My husband is not my then-boyfriend, but a guy I met in quite a few years later. I use workaround methods, but it just adds an extra level of hassle.
However, I do hope you stop by my blog once in awhile and keep in touch. It is difficult to socialise between races. Expats and locals stick to their own enclaves. If they do meet , love can happen. Racism comes only when family and friends frown on the relationship. I am a Chinese guy who currently living in America. I can to the US when I was 16 years old, my mother married a fat, and extreamly unattrictive bold head White guy, so we could come o the US.
At that time I used to only like Chinese girls cause I grow up there and watch all the Chinese movies and film where Chinese girls are beautiful. I never even thought of liking White girls by then, cause I never even seen one. I watch hollywood movie and start to accept White beauty standard. But then after that I start to get a bit lonely cause Asian girls in America never even liked me, some Asian girls told me that I am good looking which I also aggree, but they only wants to be friend.
While most other Asian girls are SO mean. I also start to get all the Racisim bullsh! That really pissed me off. Two years later, my mom divorced her fat husband lol. She start to dating again. I thought great, mom should date a Chinese guy who will have our values and traditions. But she did not, she dated another fat white guy cause she cannot find a good looking white guy.
I asked her why? She did not say, but I was smart enough to find out that she hates Asian guys and was totally white washed by American media that Asian guys suck! So I also changed. Ever since then I start to like non-Asian girls particullary White girls. But right now, I have to stay foucs on school. My comment on American white girls are: Most White girls in US do not like Asian gusy. However, the reason why Asian guys dont dig White girls is due to the lack of media promotion.
Off course they do not want to see Asian guys getting their women cause there are already competition from Black and Hispanic guys. A lot of White girls are into the Asian man sterotypes.
That many of them are turn off by us without even know us. Please dont believe in those crap, I am Asian guy and I dont have those nasty sh! But it still hurts to hear all those stuffs. I think I am kinda mentally ill right now. Slipknot, thanks for sharing your experience. I was really blown away by your story, and am so sorry to hear that you were mentally scarred on some level.
But deep down, it really is a double standard. In fact, a few weeks ago I saw a commercial here in the US — I think it was for chewing gum — and it showed two Asian guys living in Scotland with Scottish accents. Media is not to blame for not letting Asian guys get with white girls, but movies do set the tone.
We need more ambitious directors, producers and actors to put in some hotter scenes or at the very least a romance. And we need more hunky Asian heroes to help lead the way. But the bigger question is: What about all the other groups in America? I think most Asian guys are just too timid, nice and kind to get what they want. You will definitely get rejected a few times.
So does everyone else. You just might find the girl of your dreams, have 8 kids, then get a prime-time tv reality show. So from one Asian guy to all you other Asian guys who are or are thinking about whining: I met him through some British Hong Kong Chinese friends of mine. None of my friends Chinese or otherwise had any problem with my boyfriend, nor did my family.
What I did notice however is that when we were out, we got almost dirty looks from non British Chinese people. These kind of looks only ever came from Chinese people.
We swap e-mails a few times a year. I would also point out that this phenomenon exists in Japan as well. I studied Japanese at university and have lived in Japan. While a student in Japan, I noticed many romances between Japanese girls and foreign men, but very few the other way round. I prefer someone to challenge me. This is maybe cultural. I have met Japanese men I was attracted to, but as yet no romance has ever ensued.
Jocelyn, here is an artical written by a Swedish girl. Her reasons are bias. But it is interesting to read. She is trolling, if you have time to read most of her posts you will find out. She says Chinese men are not tall. LoL, yes in ShangHi. Cause ShangHI men are southern Chinese. But in Norther China. Man are much taller, close to 5. The same thing apply to White guys.
Spanish, Italian, Frence, and Portugal men are not that tall, average about 5. So, obviously this girl named Jonna is not so smart. She also talked about Chinese men are fememine, WTF.
ShangHi is an old emperial city long been fed up all the western propaganda. Men there tend to think that they are inferior.
And girls offtehn take adavantages of it and make their BF do things like carry their hand bags, and even tie their shoes. But this do not apply to Northern and West Chinese men. I for one will never do those things. Again, it shows how shallow Jonna is.
The current Frence president Nicolas Sarkozy is only 5. And Napoliean is only 5. Yet no one makes fun of them, oh yeah. The Frence are European, and European men are might tall and strong Sorry to say this, I mean no offence. Anyway, the apperance of a man is important but his personiality and his intellengence are also important. I hope people dont just judge us based on apperance. However, like Chinese people. Nothing is perfect, everything has its downside like every coin has two sides.
Chinese men like me are very hard working, smart, faimily orenated, have high values, taught to be loyal, and learned how to be a good father and take good care of our parants when they get old. The down side of us, at least for Chinese men in China is that they do not have a lot of proper manner like spitting, chocking, hocking, and nose picking. Because my mother always telling me how BAD White girls are like they are not loyal, have no ethics, blah blah blah.
However, it has its good sides such as clean enviorment, safe street, and great Universities. Its bad sides are: People always make sterotypes such as Black guys are stupid, white guys have smaller penis compare to black guys, Asian guys are nerds, Mexcian guys are all gangsters…… These things divide American people and greatly hurt the national unity. I just hope one day Coungress would pass laws to ban all sterotypes and Punish people who create them regardless of what race they are. Its good sides are: It has great infurstructure such as high way, air port, hospitals, and Universities which make living standard high and safe.
I wish people especially girls also see the good sterotypes about Chinese men instead of just the negative ones. Perhaps interracial, international dating and marriage should be expected to be rare in the first place. Here is an article that may answer the latter of the two questions. Biologically speaking, isolated populations do better at evolving traits that are adaptive to the local environment.
Reproductive barrier is a necessary condition for genetic diversity, and ultimately speciation. We would all be ethnic mud. Just like inbreeding is usually a bad thing, widespread interracial breeding, which is exactly the other extreme on the spectrum, is probably not good as well.
I am in a committed relationship with a Chinese man, and I am an American white woman. We make similar amounts of money and after much argument he agreed to let me pay a few times. We discuss politics, flaws in Chinese society, flaws in American society, love, sex, you name it we can talk about it.
Our biggest problem is that I will not stay in China, and he is reluctant to come to America. He suspects, I think rightly, that as soon as he is a Chinese immigrant in America it will be difficult for him to get a decent job.
So, in the long term I am a little worried on how we will deal with this problem when I leave. And, perhaps this is a tad inappropriate but since the topic has been broached, his penis size is above average. Our sex life has no problems. I think white women intimidate many Asian men. If you look in the above comments, the Chinese-American man who had confidence had no problem getting women.
I knew a few Asian-American men in high school who cleaned up, one was even a total player landing a string of white women. So, while there may be racism in both cultures involved I think the biggest problem is confidence on the part of the Asian men.
Prior to my current wife, I have a Canadian Girl friend, who I am her first Chinese Boy Friend, I guess she was in love with me, while we are together, she has done some research and show me how the media protrait the Chinese man, basically in negative way, and how she think the misconcept should be corrected. When I broke up with her because of my current wife We married two years later , her asked if I have found a Chinese girl to replace me now, when I told her is a Swiss, she was shock, her first reaction was — How can a Western Women fall in love with a Chinese However, she then immediately correct the statement as herself doing exactly the same.
So what if the white women reject you — is that the only race you can date? There are other colors besides white. You might be surprised. Well, how often, if ever, do you see a black woman in China? I personally lived there for more than 18 years, six years in Beijing. I can count on two hands all the black women that I had ever ever seen in Beijing in all those years, all of whom were strongers to me, and most of whom were athletes that I spotted during the Olympic games.
And I am yet to encounter a black woman outside the capital. But I used to meet white women in Beijing almost every other day, and was personally familiar with perhaps half a dozen of them. If we are to limit our discussion to the US, it should not be surprising to see five or six times more Asian-White couples than Asian-Black couples, just because of the demographic make-up: There are simply more whites than blacks in the US. If you take socio-economic factors into account, it becomes even less likely for Asian men to meet black women, bacause the gap between Asians and blacks is greater than that between Asians and whites.
The cold reality is that all people everywhere, of all races, throughout history, just tend to marry within their own socio-economic classes.
Maybe that is wrong.
