I don't know why Asians should be scared of black people, I'm not. Probably because I focus more on the fact that they're people rather than the aspect of them being black.

Well I'm a 5'11 and 195lbs -Very athletic Black Male. I am very nice, Handsome and approachable I think and I've noticed that of course some people of any race would fear me a little I have an imposing figure, but I have noticed that some Japanese and other Asian races (sorry I don't want to say every one) that are kinda new to America are much more how can I say apprehensive of my presence especially when I walk by them or sit next to them on a train or bus. Don't get me wrong I am in no way saying that they hate black people of something that harsh, I'm just honestly asking If in most Asian countries there are no black people or if there is something taught that might make them scared or maybe even my height and size? If anyone might know something I would appreciate it a lot . I have Asian friends and dated 2 Asian girls in my life time. I like people of all cultures and backgrounds.


Let me ask, are you specifically looking to date an Asian girl?

Because once you're tagged as an American with an "Asian girl fetish" this might be the reason they shy away from you. Also, at least out of the dozens of Japanese friends I have they seem to think blacks are too pushy. But then you'd also have to understand that back in Japan the only blacks they really ever see are Nigerian immigrants (aw, lets face it they're the illegal aliens of Japan) who always want to scam people.

Well y'know, people are afraid of what they don't understand. And as others have already pointed out, black people aren't exactly portrayed in a positive light in social media.

Old-fasioned Asian people tend to dislike strangers (in general). It's undeniable that a lot of Asian grandparents and such can be pretty racist. They don't think before saying something racist, either. It's just too ingrained to change on a large scale.

Then, again, everyone is racist to a certain degree. We all make assumptions and prejudge others. The 'degree' of this varies, but we all do it. I'm not promoting prejudice, but judging based on what we see has long been a way for us to cope with strangers and new environments.


this is something I didn't think of thanks for the info.

Yes I totally agree I am the same way when meeting new people...I've learned over time that anyone of any race can be a bad apple, but I get a lot of people who are surprised I am the way I am. I guess like many have posted that social media has a heavy presence on our expectations or perceptions of other race's.

guess i'll chime in since i'm black & all.. lol.

i met some korean & japanese foreign exchange students during undergrad. they were so open-minded from the onset; they were eager to learn all about my culture & vice versa. one of the students became my next-door neighbor; most benevolent, hospitable guy i had ever met.. he cooked us dinner (kim'chi = yummy), invited us to hang w/ his crew & divulged all sorts of stories about his past, including upbringing & military duty. i even began dating one of his female korean friends briefly.. they undeniably helped make my college experience a sensational one.

the take-home message is that stereotypes exist everywhere & are unfortunately perpetuated in the media.. but if people can just peel away that layer of misconceptions or "noise", they'll find how much of a blessing it is to sincerely understand & connect with others.


I agree
