There aren't very many Asian men in the US, greer.

Don't misunderstand. There is also a small pool of Asian females. All I'm saying is that it's significantly harder for your average Asian in the US to find a suitable mate of the same race. The number of out marriages always shrinks when a immigrant group expands. Plus, western women are much less traditional than their Asian counterparts. so some westen men go for that.

From Wiki...

Marriages between White Americans and Asian Americans are increasingly common for both genders in the United States.[14]

In 2008, of new marriages including an Asian man, 80% were to an Asian spouse and 14% to a White spouse; of new marriages involving an Asian woman, 61% were to an Asian spouse and 31% to a White spouse.[15] Asian Americans of both genders who are U.S.-raised are much more likely to be married to Whites than their non-U.S.-raised counterparts.[16] A 1998 Washington Post article states 36% of young Asian Pacific American men born in the United States married White women, and 45% of U.S.-born Asian Pacific American women took White husbands during the year of publication.[17]

According to social studies by Jenifer L. Bratter and Rosalind B. King gender plays a significant role in interracial dynamics.[9] White wife/Asian husband couples are 59% more likely to divorce by the 10th year of marriage than White wife/White husband couples, whereas Asian wife/White husband couples show only 4% greater likelihood of divorce than White wife/White husband couples over the same period.[9] Social enterprise research by the Columbia Business School (20052007) concluded that while East Asian women statistically prefer East Asian men for marriage, they show no discrimination against White men, causing Asian women/White men pairings to consistently become the prevalent form of interracial dating & marriage in the United States.[6]

Wow, almost 1/3 of Asian women choosing Whitey. I hear what you're saying about traditionalism  :-\
