"I'm not racist; my wife is Asian!" Why are there so many racist, conservative, alt-right, right wing, anti-black, anti-Asian, anti-social, anti-feminist, conspiracy theorist, pro-white, white nationalist, creepy, weird, rejected, unattractive white men who fetishize and marry Asian women? How many times have you seen racist white men fetishize asian women as an alternative to "feminist", slutty Western women? If the overwhelming majority of half Asians have white fathers, with white men fetishizing Asian women as "submissive and pro-white," (and to take back power against blacks, "mudsharks," and 'degeneracy') and Asian women preferring white men for status and integration and to "feel beautiful" and to have "white" children - what happens to the children of these race-based, white-supremacist fetishistic couples - especially if they look asian or non-white, feel ashamed to be Asian, and still face racism? a website written by concerned half-asians worried about the threat these men, women and their children will pose to the future of progress.

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?
