Reaction of whites to interracial unions between colored people (revised)
Sorry about the earlier mix up in this post.
Many people react negatively when they see a member of their culture/ethnic group with a member of another ethnic group. “What are our men/women doing with outsiders?᾿ This is a reaction that is almost the expected reaction.
Well am not against interracial unions so before you start with the cursing, hold them horses. However you will agree with me (those who will) that I am merely stating something that is not inconceivable… most people might feel that they should stick with their own kind.

According to an article I read the other say, strange as it may look, for some whites, this negative reaction to interracial unions goes way past white/non-white couples. There have been a few incidents I may have encountered that made this register with me. For example one day, a black man walked by holding an Asian woman. Then a white dude next to me said "It is strange to see a black man with an Asian woman". So why is it not weird when a white man is with an Asian woman?
I may be overreacting and if so, then let me know. But has anyone ever noticed this? So what is the difference between white men dating Asians and black men who date Asians? Both are interracial unions.
My pal was telling me black-Asian couples encounter more explicit forms of white disapproval. This, I am trying to swallow. If we go by the normal excuse of disapproval - “purity being at stake᾿ – then what does a black-Asian couple got to do with the white community’s purity being threatened? Clearly, that cannot apply to this case. So what is the reasoning behind it then?
In an article The Art of War the author tried explaining this reaction. "the yellow woman is considered the white man's exclusive toy, and he is not willing to share this toy with other men of any color". Does this mean that whites only approve of interracial unions they are involved in? Do they feel the same resentment when it’s a white women dating Asian men or are they ok with it.
