    I like a lot how you collect these stories. It seems that Chinese men are silently launching their charm revolution.

    The only issue is that such couples in the US wll be considered Asian-Hispanic, not Asian-white.

    Brazilians aren’t Hispanic. For one, they speak Portuguese.

    “Brazilians aren’t Hispanic. For one, they speak Portuguese.”
    May be not, but considered Hispanic by the US government and I am very sure by Sheriff Arapio in Arizona….

    “Hispanic (Spanish: hispano, hispánico) is a term that originally denoted a relationship to Hispania, which is to say the Iberian Peninsula: Portugal, Andorra, Gibraltar and Spain.”

    Yay, Fred!!!!!!!! You’re from my neck of the woods too! Sounds like you are happy and I’m glad for you. I did the reverse and came from the South Bay area out to China to follow my heart. I’ve not had the same outcome but am happy to be here learning Mandarin (for fun and future in-laws’ sake).

    Thanks for sharing your story!

    Hispanic is an ethnic identifier, not a racial one. Hispanics can be of any race, black, white, native American, even Asian (ex: ,,_Jr.) I had a friend in college with a Germanic last name whose Mexican mom was even whiter than me. No one would guess he was Hispanic unless he told them.

    That’s true. My mom was hispanic. 🙂 Spanish, Italian, aboriginal, and Dutch heritage. I am only second generation.

    I know a woman from Colombia with blonde hair and blue eyes – she’s hispanic. 🙂

    @ Mayte. Why don’t you share your complete story just as I did? I would love to read it on this site. I shared mine. So, why not share yours?

    @ Fred. Your ears must have been burning today…I was just passing through Torrance and remembered this story and that you were probably a stone’s throw from the car. I’m home for CNY obviously. I don’t think I have a story as good as yours. Mine doesn’t have the happy ending yet. I’m a stubborn one though so I’ll eventually get there. When I do, I’ll probably be sharing with anyone who will sit still long enough to listen. 😉

    Oh…and for the record… Portuguese are not Hispanic. Hispanic refers to people and countries related to Spain. Portuguese are in fact, Latin (and that term in itself is often incorrectly used interchangeably with Hispanic), but they are not Hispanic. They speak Portuguese, not Spanish and have their own beautiful language and culture that they share globally (Brazil included).

    @ Mayte. I live and work in Torrance. So, one day I look forward to either reading your story on or see you in person in Torrance to hear it from you directly. When will you story be told? I am dying of curiosity now.

    @ Fred. One of these days for sure! I’m only here until the 3rd so you’ll have to drop me a line. You’re welcome to email me at [email protected] No real need to be curious though. It’s not so exciting a story. I’m just stubborn, is all. =)

    @ Jocelyn, Thank you for your ideas. I will try to send it as soon as I have a chance. Thank you also for creating an opportunity for people to share their stories like this. It’s very nice to know there are others having similar experiences that you can learn from.

    OMG that was such a lovely story! But of course, if you move to another country, like your family moved to the US, of course you would be influenced by the local culture and people. So no wonder that you and your siblings married white people…
    One should remember that as an immigrant.
