I read the white guy-japanese girl thread and saw members comments. What didn't seem to be discussed was why people held such views. Alot of white guys like Japanese girls and vice versa but based on stereotypes. Read the following links and then reply.

Do you think there is really such as thing as "yellow fever" and people dating based on such stereotypes?

There is no such thing as Yellow fever. There is however a preference of dating asian women called yellow fever.

If people want to label a "personal preference" with a whacked wanna be scientific term then oh well. As long as you are true to yourself who cares.

Please.......that article on the yellow fever is bogus. So she takes some examples and generalizes like crazy. I'm sure no body would harrass her sexy asian friend if she was ugly...

I wonder how she was dressed ^^
Beside this "Yellow fever" that's described seems to be mainnly "white men->asian women" oriented ^^
I've rarely heard of the same things from my chinese friends if not one that looks a lil bit like those J-rock singer...

Indeed, yellow fever implies that there is an attraction entirely based on race.
Given the choice between a butt ugly Asian and a really hot black African goddess, I know who's altar I'de be worshiping at that night. 😊

Totally agree! When you have the so-called "yellow fever" you can't differentiate btw ugly and cute Asian...they're all....just cute Asians:p
