In fact, our studies find that white and Asian men are more likely to respond to [multiracial] Asian-white women than either Asian or white women.” Multiracial “Asian-white” men were also preferred by Asian American women over (monoracial) Asian men and over white men.
White women responded to multiracial “Asian-white” men and white men most frequently, and they responded to (monoracial) Asian men and to African American men the least.
