The Métis in Canada

“The term ‘Métis’ does not mean any white person who believes they also have some Native ancestry.” (See Métis, Wikipedia.)

Many Canadians combine European and Amerindian ancestry to a lesser or greater extent. In the early years of the colony, French settlers married Amerindian women. After the arrival, between 1663 and 1673, of the “Filles du Roy,” men could marry French women.

However, we can’t presume that Quebecers of European ancestry stopped marrying Aboriginals, the minute the King’s Daughters arrived in New France. People of European extraction still marry Amerindians, but their children are not necessarily Métis in the narrow sense of the word. They are Métis if one uses the word Métis in its broadest acceptation. In other words, all Canadians who have some Aboriginal ancestry are métissés(e)s.

"I'm not racist, my wife is Asian!" What will happen when racist, anti-social, anti-diversity, conservative, anti-feminist, anti-black, anti-asian white men marry "traditional, family oriented," status-obsessed, racist asian tiger moms who hope their children look white for privilege - and produce half asian sons who look totally asian and hear "no asian guys"? what happens when half-asian sons grow up to look "too asian," and have a white dad and asian mom who are mocking asian men, while society is unapologetically racist against asian men? an honest appraisal of self-hatred, fetishization, and psycho-sexual racism by the very worried son of a racist, black-hating, holocaust denier, Nazi-sympathizer and a racist, extremely violent, self-hating chinese woman.

Why does it seem that the men that pursue Asian women as a "last resort," are generally the most racist, spiteful and hateful people - especially against Asian men, other minorities and white women? If Asian women prefer White men - why is this, and what happens to the children - especially if they look predominantly Asian? Compiled by Asian-looking Eurasians and Hapas themselves. A community effort to explore the unintended consequences of "white fever" and "yellow fever", racism, fetishes, power imbalances, stereotypes, and the effect it has on a staggeringly large, growing, and unexplored new demographic. Why does it seem the children of Asian men and White women fare better and are more successful? Why is there such a double standard against Asian men and white women, whereas Asian women essentially default to White men? What happens when Half Asian sons resemble Asian men? Why do so many White supremacists, alt-rightists, and White Nationalists have Asian partners? Why do racist white men fetishize Asian women, and why do Asian women fetishize white men - and what does that mean for the children? compiled by the son of a neo-nazi and a chinese woman.
