White dude, Asian wife. Stereotype away.

Chuck,

People often say things like “Oh he must have a fetish for Asians” or “She must be looking for a Green Card” or “He must not be able to get a White girl”. No one ever says “Oh, you two nerds are perfect for each other” even if it’s true. In Asia, our mixed race kids are treated like supermodels because half-white is treated as superior to fully Asian, but white is just too foreign. And in America, my wife gets asked what she’s doing with those white kids.
