Or maybe I'm just being overly sensitive?

The post itself does not mean to be racist, though it employs some offensive cultural stereotypes about Asian women (and white women too). And the rest of the website is really funny.

But the comments on that post are so mean and scary that I thought about sending an email to the admin (see below). Is it weird that I'm offended?

Dear Stuff White People Like,

While the majority of your blog posts are extremely funny and satirically on-the-mark, your post #11 about "Asian Girls" completely lacks the same self-aware humor. While, for whatever reason, it is less offensive for white people to make fun of and/or perpetuate stereotypes about other white people, it is rude and racist for white people to do the same for non-whites. Your "Asian Girls" post does just that, and while it was clearly not the intention of the author to insult Asian American women, your readers have taken it upon themselves to do so in the comment section.

Surely you have no time to peruse all the comments, but you needn't read past the most current page of comments to see the hatred and contempt expressed not only for Asian American women, but women of all backgrounds, white women included. This particular page of your blog has provided a forum for the perpetuation of hurtful and offensive stereotypes about Asian women and men. Keeping in mind that your blog has received over 60 million hits to this day, that the post about "Asian Girls" is the third most popular, and that your website receives much media attention, imagining the extensive breadth these hateful opinions reach is frightening.

As I have gathered from your very informative website, as a white person, you are probably quite fond of "not appearing racist or sexist." As someone who views this post (and its comments) as both, I would like to see you disable or moderate comments on this particular entry, add a disclaimer or edit that makes this entry less (preferably not at all) offensive to white women, remove the inappropriate stereotypes about Asian women and culture, and change the title to "Asian Women" unless you were intending to imply pedophilia. Contrary to what the pornography industry insinuates, we are Women, not girls.

While it is somewhat entertaining to read a blog about white people making fun of other white people, it has quite the opposite effect when those white people are stereotyping people of other races. I hate (love) to play to your inherent White Person guilt by pointing out that perhaps it has something to do with the legacy of violence and exploitation that "people of color" have suffered at the hands of your ancestors :)?

They real reason white men like Asian women so much, is because black men are taking their women , so instead of them staying depressed, they just moved over to the Asian women. That's the truth , don't get me wrong white Asians are pettier in the face, than white Europeans .

I don't find it racist at all,
if anything, I see it as a compliment and somewhat true.

Just relax, it's fine.

No no no. Black guys dating White women has nothing to do with it. White women are available to date Black men because White men don't want them anymore, or at least as much. It is because (many) White men prefer Asian women altogether. Asian women are so frequently thin and pretty, have beautiful features and great bodies, and are petite and feminine. What's not to like? They're a hundred times hotter than the average White woman, hands down. That's all the reason most of us need.

misun- I dont think you're being over sensitive. I agree with you.

I do think some white people are perpetulating the stereotype. This Asian fetish thing isnt helping anyone.

It's not racist. NYC girl 25 said it all. She is being truthful in her pointing out that all of the Asian women you see are with fat old guys that nobody wants, especially White women. It's just the way it is-truth hurts. Two undesireable creatures finding comfort in one another.
If you do see an Asian toddler with a good looking White guy, he is either her boss taking her out to lunch, or he is a paid prostitute/escort for the woman to flaunt around and give Asian guys dirty looks.

Not racist at all. It's because white guys I know can't get white girls & don't like them. All my white friends are dating asian chicks. One korean dude was bitching about this to me in college, even though he had an asian gf. But who losses: Asian dudes. sucks for them.

Hello, is that true? Some White guys cannot get white girls so they settle for Asians? I find that offensive, because nobody want to be second best.

How can you be second best if the man left his ex's to be with you for life?

I am not second best. I am second to none.

Oh boy,the stereo type is unbelievable. The ignorant is too overwhelming. How can anyone generalieze anybody just like that!?

For me,the white women who generalized and bad talk the white men and the asian women are those who lost their white men over an asian woman. Lol.

Forget the cuteness. What about the happiness and togetherness? Are they married for a long time? Do they look happy at all?

There are people who don't give a crap about looks. All they care is if the relationship would last.

I am talking about White guys who keep getting rejected or hurt by white females, so they look somewhere else.

First the site "Stuff white people like" should be titled "Stuff urban upper class white people like".
And how could it be racist to love some body of a different race ? Some body change the defination of racism and not tell me? Is it racist to be friends with some one of a different race now to?
But as a white man who has been married to an Asian womaan now forover 18 years I can say every interaccial couple I know is different and to try to generalize them is both ignorent and a waste of time.
