But to all the curvy daters out there, we suggest giving the Asian man who viewed your profile a second look.

The audience laughed at the latter book in anticipation as Harvey took 15 seconds to gather himself. Not even a full 12 months ago, I wondered why an ostensibly “sorry about #Oscars So White” Academy Awards ceremony thought it would be funny to include a couple of jokes about Asians being good at math and sweatshop labor, plus an off-script gag from presenter Sacha Baron Cohen confusing the tiny dongs of ’s Minions for Asian men. It’s tired — so tired, in fact, that its origins can be traced all the way to the mid-1800s.

While apathy and animosity toward Muslim men can be explained away, however imprecisely, given the political environment in the U. since the 9/11 terror attacks, religion seems to play curious, even if inconsistent and often contradictory, role in social relationships.

For instance, there are many instances of Jewish men marrying Hindu and Buddhist women, but quite inexplicably the same cannot be said about Jewish women opting for Hindu or Buddhist men.How does one explain this predicament of Asian men, who are raised to be proud and upright men of character with undisputed leadership roles assigned in the family and society?Even if I'm eminently unqualified to make sociological or cultural deductions, let me offer some possible clues.The enviable standing of black men in sports and music -- two major preoccupations of American life -- also gives them an advantage over Asian men, who are conspicuously absent in American popular culture.And Chinese, Korean and Indian students, be it in school or college, are invariably classified as nerds -- hardly a "cool" category that generates dating buzz among females, particularly during the "vampire-chick-lit" phase they inexplicably go through.Barring a small community of Chinese and Japanese immigrants in the Pacific North East, Asian migration is relatively new -- most of it taking place since the repeal of racist exclusionary laws in the 1960s.
