As I am always researching matters pertaining interracial families, I came across a post on The Salt Collective written by Liz Lin entitled. How Do You Raise A Multiracial Child?. As woman of Chinese descent, Lin’s experience differs from many of ours. But as a mother, it is not so different. We all want the best for our children. We want them to work hard, thrive and be successful.
No. Because Asian men and black women have always gotten together and this is nothing novel. Though not as numerous as bw-wm couples, depending upon where they were geographically Asian men did marry numerous black women. While researching, I found Providence’s Black Chinese: A Love Story, a report by Luke Tsai. There were probably more couples as documents suggest a Chinese presence in Rhode Island as early as 1801.
