Overview on Inter-Racial Relationships Over the Past Twenty Years: 2

December 4, 2019 29 comments

In the previous post of this series, I pointed out that changes in the racial demography of western countries has had little effect on patterns of inter-racial dating and relationships. In many larger cities, the percentage of non-whites among the 25-and-under age group has already crossed the halfway mark. Yet, the percentage of inter-racial relationships (adjusted for population numbers) has hardly budged from levels seen twenty years ago. Also, the patterns of such relationships has not changed over the same timespan. While the comments section in my previous post is full of ‘explanations’ for this state of affairs, it is clear that too many are not willing to accept the most obvious and logical explanation aka majority of whites still deluding themselves into thinking they are somehow inherently special.

It is hard to teach new tricks to an old dog, especially when those old tricks have became part of its identity. So in this part, we will talk about how this behavior manifests itself in tragically comic ways. I am sure you must have heard about how data from dating apps and sites consistently shows that almost all women in the declining west want men who look like models. While I am not denying this fact, few of these studies talk about what women will settle for. This is a very important, but often ignored, issue since most women do not get their super-hot guy.. even for a one-night stand. So what kind of guy do these women end up with once they fail to get their model guy? More tellingly, a shlubby white guy is still far more likely to end up in a relationship with a women (white or Asian) than a non-white guy without major cosmetic issues.

Do you see what I am getting at? If patterns in interracial relationships had actually changed over past twenty years, we would have start to see as many average non-white men in interracial relationships as their female equivalents. However, this is not the case even in the so-called “LIEbral” coastal regions of this continent. A few (MikeCA?) might want you to believe that this has something to do with these men eschewing such relationships for some esoteric “cultural” reasons. But is that really so? Are men of any ethnicity and ancestry that different from each other? Men want pussy, preferably not ugly but are quite willing to overlook mediocrity in women. Most men will settle for a ‘5’ if they don’t have better options- unless she is a horrible person.

But what makes this lack of change in patterns of inter-racial dating even more hilarious is how all of this is brushed aside our age of fake “wokeness” and “diversity”. You are far more likely to hear, read and see some story of a “non-binary drag clown” reading LGBTQ-heavy stories to 6-year old children in a public library than about the lack of change in patterns of interracial dating over past two decades- though the later has a far larger sociological relevance than the former. Heck.. a male feminist (white, of course) who cuts his junk to stimulate bleeding like a woman and labels himself non-binary gets far more media coverage than an issue which has infinitely greater relevance to the future of that society. Why do non-issues represented by attention-whores (almost always white) get so much traction in the lamestream media and on internet.

While I have much more to say about this sub-topic in upcoming parts of this series, we will now move on another related issue. Have any of you wondered what will happen to societies which cannot address this problem? Once again, some of you (MikeCA?) might want to believe that lack of interracial dating and relationships will have no worthwhile effect on those societies. My opinions, as you all know, are rather different. Having read enough history, I have yet to come across examples of societies which had taboos against inter-ethnic and inter-group relationships and still remained functional over any significant period of time. In fact, I wrote a whole series about how the caste or jati system in India was so damaging to that society. To make another long story short, societies with seriously siloed patterns of marriage and relationships are highly fragmented and dysfunctional because of the complete lack of a shared identity.

Racial siloing of relationships “worked” in the west between the 1960-1990s because, during that period, non-whites in those countries were an absolute minority who could be ignored to bullied to accept the status quo. But as we know, the racial composition of people in younger age-groups is now rather different from what it was- even in the 1990s. Now tell me something, why would non-whites whose relationship and dating pool is restricted to their co-ethnics give a shit about the fate of the societies they lived in- even if they were born in them. And this is not a trivial question.. especially as idiots such as Trump are increasing the level of racial polarization.

To be clear, I am not predicting a series of increasingly violent confrontations- though that does remain a possibility. It is however very likely that such racial siloing will create increasingly dysfunctional societies centered around racial identity politics in which not much gets done and everybody pretends to be polite to each other while planning to screw other those who not part of their group. Think of how things work (or don’t work) In India and replace ‘jati’ with race. The funny thing is you are actually starting to see the beginnings of this phenomenon in places like coastal California and New York. Then again, people deserve what they get especially when they have worked so hard to (often unintentionally) ensure that outcome.

Overview on Inter-Racial Relationships Over the Past Twenty Years: 1

November 24, 2019 59 comments

Longtime readers might remember that some of my earliest posts were about why I began using escorts. In those and other related posts, I also touched on how racism against non-white men in the area of dating was an important contributor to my decision of choosing the paid route. A few of you might also remember that the events in question occurred during the late 1990s and very early 2000s, when I was in my early to mid 20s. Which leads to an interesting question.. has the general situation and realities surrounding inter-racial dating in western countries changed for the “better” over past twenty years? Are many of the issues I wrote about in the past less common in 2019, than they were in say.. 1998 or 1999? Or are things no better than before?

The very short answer to those questions is as follows: the general situation surrounding inter-racial dating in the west has not changed much over the past twenty years. Indeed, in some ways things have gotten worse than they used to be in the past. But why does it matter enough for me to write another series about the topic? Well.. the simple answer is that those twenty years have also seen a large shift in racial composition of said countries, especially in the younger age groups. But first a bit of background. Over those decades, I have lived in two cities, one with a population of over a million and another with over four million. While the larger city already had a significant non-white population by mid 1990s, the smaller one was extra-white as late as 1999.

Today, things are rather different. The larger city has been majority non-white for well over a decade and white kids are the minority. But more interestingly, the schools and universities in even the smaller city went from being really white to almost 50% non-white during that period. In fact, the majority of students attending primary schools in many parts of that city are non-white. But what does any of this have to do with inter-racial dating? Well.. it comes down to a conversation I had with someone over 15 years ago. At that time, I said something to the effect that disparities in rates of inter-racial dating were due to whites believing themselves to be magically “better” or more “desirable” that others. The other person maintained that it was due to lack of familiarity. I then said that time alone could show who was correct.

It turns out that my cynical take on the topic was correct. See.. if the other person’s theory was right, a large increase in the number of non-white kids attending schools and universities would increase familiarity with whites translating into higher rates of inter-racial dating. So have the rates on inter-racial relationships in the 20-something age group changed significantly between 1999 and 2019? The simple answer is.. a big fucking NO! Some of you might counter by saying that the number of inter-racial couples have increased over past two decades. And to that, I say.. sure. But the percentage of inter-racial couples has remained static and even decreased over that timespan. More importantly, patterns of inter-racial dating have remained static over that period.

Asian male- white female (AM-WF) couples are still the most uncommon type while White male – Asian Female (WM-AF) are the most common type of inter-racial couples. In almost all black male – white female (BM-WF) couples, which is the 2nd most common type, the woman is invariably overweight, plain-looking or older. Similarly in almost every brown male- white female (BrM-WF) couple, the woman is invariably plain-looking and in it for the money. So what is going on? Why are the patterns on inter-racial dating in 2019 almost identical to those of 1999. Why didn’t the large changes in ethnic composition of schools and universities not lead to increased familiarity?

Maybe, it was never about lack of familiarity. Indeed, that excuse was eerily reminiscent of how certain older black people believed that the racial discrimination they faced could be overcome by showing whites that they were a conservative and hard-working aka black respectability politics. Turns out, systemic racism against black people had nothing to do with their behavior and actions and everything to do with their skin color. Who could have known? Similarly, racism against non-whites (especially men) in the sphere of dating had nothing to do with lack of familiarity and everything to do with the ego and self-delusions of a group that is now in a terminal demographic spin. But why take my word for it, have a look at other related patterns.

As many of you know, the premium on being white has gone down a lot since 1999. That group is now the one with increasing mortality and morbidity due to drug overdose, alcoholism and higher rates of suicide. Even outside this continent, whites are not doing well- to put it mildly. Between these issues and higher rates of unemployment due to outsourcing, lower fertility per woman etc, it is not an exaggeration to say that we all know which group doesn’t have an especially bright future. And yet, the attitudes of your average (or median) white man or woman towards inter-racial dating have not changed, even in the younger age groups who have some awareness that their future is not bright. What is going on..

Some of you might counter that by saying that inter-racial relationships are far more accepted by younger white demographics. My counter argument is.. sure, that is what they say but is the belief reflected in their own behavior. It is very easy to support an idea if you don’t have to follow it up with actions. In the next part, I will show you how his hilarious denial manifests itself in popular culture. And ya.. I am fine with the situation, because this slow-motion disaster is following the path I had predicted (and hoped for). If a group wants to take their delusions to their collective demographic graves.. I say, let them do it. In fact, they should be encouraged.

Musings on the Growing Sterility of Suburbia: Apr 29, 2017

April 29, 2017 15 comments

Let me begin this post by telling you that I first considered writing it about 2-3 years ago. However for a number of reasons, it got bumped down the list of what I ended up actually posting. It is based on a peculiar observation I have made over the years. However to explain the context of those observations, I have to first tell you where I live- very vaguely.

I live (rent) in a pretty affluent and nice but somewhat established suburb built in the late-1960s and 1970s. The time of its construction is important for three reasons relevant to this post. Firstly, unlike many suburbs built later on which contain only detached houses, this one does actually have a decent number of condos and apartment buildings. Secondly, it is within walking distance of multiple malls which are still busy and profitable. Thirdly, it has a much more balanced age structure than many other suburbs which are either predominately young or old. It is also worth mentioning that I lived in that area for over a decade.

So, what changes did I notice over those years which led me write this post. Well.. it is an observation about long-term changes in the number (or percentage) of people in that area who have children. It is also about the demographic characteristics of people who still have children.

Ever since the suburb in question was built, it has been one of the more desirable and affordable residential areas of that city. Consequently, it always had a fair number of younger couples with children. I noticed that on moving there almost 12 years ago- largely because of the noise of kids playing outside their houses, which could be a bit too much sometimes. Anyway, the point I am trying to make is that younger couples with children had no problems being able to afford buying houses there from the time it was built up to 2007-2008.

Then something changed.. You see, house prices in that area increased by almost 300% in the 2006-2014 time span. Curiously, rents did not go by anything close to that percentage within the same time span. To make a long story short, it appears that many younger couples with children who owned their houses cashed out and moved further away from downtown. But houses can be sold only if somebody is willing to buy them and this brings me to issue of who bought them. Once again, to keep it brief, these houses were bought by somewhat older people and more affluent but often childless couples. The change in type of people buying houses in that area can account for a part of the decrease in percentage of people with kids in that area- but not most of it.

As I mentioned earlier, the area in question has a pretty decent number of renters- of both houses and condos. Also, many people renting houses and condos in that area had kids. So was there any change there? Well.. no and yes. The percentage of people renting in that area remained very constant, however the newer renters were far less likely to have kids in the first place. But why? Did they have less money than the previous groups of renters? As it turns out, that was not the case and the newer renters were just as affluent or more so than the group they gradually replaced. It is just that they did not have as many, if any, kids.

Curiously, there is an interesting exception to this general trend. It seems that younger non-white families (Asian, Indian, inter-racial etc) in that area still have kids. In other words, the general reduction in the number of kids per couple (if they have any in first place) is largely a white phenomena. To put it another way, over half the children in this relatively affluent and desirable area are now of non-white ancestry. Of course, nobody is having more than two kids but a majority who have any in that area are non-white. So what does that mean for the future? Well.. lets just say that it depends on what you consider desirable.

But coming back to the question of why the “majority” in that area now have far fewer kids than before- even when you adjust for age. In my opinion the answers are as follows: 1] The risk of getting ruined by divorce, alimony and child support is very relevant if you have enough money to lose. 2] Most people who lived in that area used to have stable and well-paying jobs. Now their jobs are just well-paying. 3] Perhaps it is getting even more expensive to raise children? I cannot be sure about that, but it appears to be the case. Let me know if you can think of any more reasons.
