This article investigates the intersectionality between an Asian men and white females relationships their race, class, gender, and sexuality. The worrying indifference that men show towards the violence that is systematically inflicted on women of color. Non-white women who are victims of the coloniality of power. and, inseparably, from the coloniality of gender. In the Asian men and white females relationship, non-white women are victims of the coloniality of power and, inseparably, of the coloniality of gender.
The article follows the tradition of thought of colored women that have created a critical analysis of hegemonic feminism, precisely by ignoring the intersectionality of race/class/sexuality/gender.
Occidental feminism in AMWF
The article also discusses a different approach, quite distinct from occidental feminisms, of understanding patriarchy from the coloniality of gender. The worrying indifference that humans demonstrate concerning the acts of violence that are systematically infringed against black women, or women, with women. Victims of coloniality of power. and, inseparably, it gives gender coloniality. Or ego is inserted within the tradition of thinking of women of corps that have created critical analyzes of hegemonic feminism precisely because it ignores the intersection of race/class/sexuality/gender.
It understands how this indifference builds. In turn, converts it into something whose reconstitution is unavoidable in liberating struggles. To understand or patriarchy from the coloniality of gender. Asian men and white females the convergence of race, class, sex, and sexuality to comprehend the upsetting lack of concern that men show towards the savagery that is deliberately perpetrated on ladies of shading: non-white ladies. Women victims of the coloniality of power and, inseparably, of the coloniality of gender; women who have created critical analyzes of hegemonic feminism precisely by ignoring the intersectionality of race/class/sexuality/gender. Above all, since it is important for our struggles.
The indifference of those men who continue to be victims of racial domination.
The indifference of those men who continue to be victims of racial domination, of the coloniality of power, interiorized by global capitalism. Problematizing their indifference towards the violence that the State, the white patriarchy, and that they perpetuate against the women of our communities, all over the world, in the spring that leads me to this theoretical investigation. I take an interest that these communities are already located in Brooklyn, Los Angeles, Mexico City, London, –or other great urban centers of the world– or the indigenous rural communities of New Mexico, Arizona, Mesoamerica, the Andean region, New Zealand, Nigeria, are communities that have not accepted the western colonial invasion. I understand the indifference to violence against women in our communities as indifference towards profound social transformations in communal structures and therefore totally relevant to the rejection of colonial imposition.
This lack of interest is constructed to turn it into something whose recognition is unavoidable for those who maintain that they are involved in liberating struggles. This indifference is insidious because it imposes impassable barriers in our struggles as women of color for our integrity, self-determination, the very core of the struggles for the liberation of our communities. This indifference discovered both at the degree of regular daily existence and the degree of estimating persecution and freedom. Aloofness caused simply by a division of race, sex, class, and sexuality, a detachment that doesn’t permit us to see the brutality. It is not only a question of epistemological blindness whose origin lies in a categorical separation.
Feminist opinion in AMWF
Feminists of color made it very clear, in terms of violent domination and exploitation. Once the epistemological perspective focuses on the intersection of these categories. However, this has not been enough to awaken in those men, who have also been victims of violent domination and exploitation, any type of recognition of the complicity or collaboration that they lend to the exercise of violent domination by women of color. In particular, the theorizing of global domination continues to carry out as if it was not necessary to recognize and resist betrayals or collaborations of this type.In the West, the challenge for feminism is to find a way to proceed from a category of “woman” that is saturated-in-terms-of-gender toward the fullness of an asexual humanity
Hispanics lead the rise in Asian men and white females marriages in the United States
A couple of Mildred and Richard Loving took to court the prohibition of marrying for interracial couples. Trouble for Asian men and white females
One in six newlyweds in the United States has a partner of a different race than their own. The most common interracial union has a Hispanic citizen and a white citizen. The Hispanic community is also the one that leads this growing phenomenon. It has contributed to the skyrocketing of multiracial unions in recent years. The United States, the country that has one of its hallmarks of immigration and diversity. It has legalized marriages between people of different races 50 years ago.
Since then, this type of union has multiplied by five. In 2015, 17% of newlyweds had a partner of a different race or ethnicity. According to Census data analyzed by the Pew Center. In total, of all American marriages, one in ten is interracial. In1967, when a couple of white men and an African-American woman defied the law in the case known as Loving v. Virginia, 97% of marriages were between people of the same race.
The Pew researchers Report
The Pew researchers attribute that growth to two factors. The first is a drastic change in public opinion, which increasingly accepts these types of unions. The second attribute to a community like the Hispanic one the impulse of multiracial marriages. Since 42% of Hispanics and white formed these unions.
Four out of ten Americans believe that the rise in interracial marriages is good for society. The percentage represents an increase of 15% since 2010. The Pew report has detected an even more significant decrease among people who reject these unions. In 1990 63% of whites declared that they opposed or were “very” opposed to marrying an African American. Or someone in his family did today that percentage is 14%. Whites. Since 1980 remain the least likely to marry a person of another race despite an increase of 4% to 11%.
Hispanics along with Asians
At the opposite extreme are Hispanics along with Asians. Data from 2015 shows that 29% of Asians and 27% of Hispanics were part of interracial marriage. The percentage is even higher among those born in the United States. 39% of Hispanics and 46% of Asian Americans married to people of another race. The authors highlight the difference between gender. In the case of Asians,36% of Asian women marry men of another race or ethnicity. Compared to 21% of men in this community.
Census data also show that the most significant increase is for African Americans. Since 1980, the proportion of African and Americans have married a person of a different race has nearly quadrupled from 5% to 18%. This group follows a different pattern than Asians, African and American men. 24% are more likely to marry partners of another race, compared to 12% of women.
According to Las Vegas (Nevada) and Santa Barbara (California). Pew has also revealed that the American city with the most interracial marriages is Honolulu (Hawaii) with 42%. At the opposite extreme are Jackson (Mississippi) and Asheville (North Carolina) with just 3% of marriages celebrated in that locality between people of different races.
