In her exposé, Charlton interviews casting director and star of the web series Model Files Preston Chaunsumlit (whose mother is Filipino and whose father is Chinese Thai) on the subject.
In terms of casting, it's harder for Black women to get those jobs and it's hard for Asian men to get those jobs because it's a question of, "Are they considered attractive? " A lot of the times they're only presented in ways in which they're "otherized."Chaunsumlit also believes these trends in the fashion industry (and possibly in overall media) affects society as a whole.
Was I hired because there are no black women on staff? Presently, the question on my mind is this: All of my friends are getting married and I'm not. Statistics show that I am not the only black woman dealing with this situation.
Will I come off as an "angry black woman" if I speak candidly about this controversial topic? Black women between the ages of 25 and 29 are less likely to be married than other groups.
Nine out of 10 of them would be fine with people in their circles dating someone outside their race or ethnicity.
Black women are being told we need to be open to IR dating, and at the same time we're being told no matter what we do, we're not going to get noticed anyway.

Some of them advertised real life meet-ups and dating events."Schwaartz also writes about growing up half Taiwanese in middle America, and how he felt his Asian features made him less attractive.
He continues, "Recent statistics have shown that East Asian men are viewed as the least desirable male partners in American society." (In this article, I'll use "Asian" as shorthand for East Asian men, who are Taiwanese, Japanese, Korean, Chinese, and so on.) The writer also adds, "The unattractiveness of Asian-American men can be linked to their perceived lack of masculinity.
While presenting authentic commentary on Black women's experiences with love, I have to make sure that my words work to uplift Black women as opposed to further "othering" them.
