Yellow Fever 2

November 6, 2019


Interracial dating. Every community can get sensitive when it comes to this hot topic, and ten years ago I went to explore the phenomenon known as yellow fever. I was so curious why there were more Asian girls going for white guys and not the other way around. Like it was some sort of big deal. It was a story that resonated with millions of people at the time, and it’s hard to believe that ten years have passed. But looking back, I’ve grown so much. I learned a lot from that video, and sometimes I like to come back to where it all started, just to remind myself how far we’ve come. Yeah, I’ve never done an Asian guy before. I mean I feel like they’re all the same. It’d be like dating my brother. You know I really like Asian girls. Check this out. Ni hao ma? That’s it! Ten years, and nothing’s changed. It’s a whole new generation and once again, it’s my duty to figure out the age-old question: Why are the white guys taking all our girls? [Girl laughs] [Anime action noises] Now, where’s my DDR Pad? ‘Scuse me? What? That t-shirt you’re wearing … It’s a little bit racist. You can read this? Uh … yeah. I took Mandarin for three semesters in college. Plus, they’re like teaching Chinese in Elementary schools now, you know? No way. I also worked in Shanghai for two years. Maybe we should be more careful next time. Hey babe! Hey! Oh. Cool shirt. What does it say? So you do have yellow fever! I’m a third-generation Asian American girl who does not belong to or owe anything to your perception of racial boundaries and expectations. [Loud crash] Yeah, and besides you act like all of us are abandoning you. The majority of Asian girls are in relationship with Asian guys. I love my Asian boyfriend. He’s smart, caring, handsome, and we share cultural ties. Hey babe, I got our favorite. Taro Milk Tea and Grass Jelly. [Romantic music] I love you! Is it yellow fever if I’m Asian? Bart, back me up here! About what? About not enough Asian guys with non-Asian girls. What do I know about that? Well you’re Asian. I am? And Geo’s … Mexican? Holy shit! I never realized that, every time I look at you, I only see the beautiful things that I love about her. I don’t see color or anything like that. And don’t act like we haven’t put ourselves out there. It’s like Asian guys can’t handle a strong black female. Come on now. Yeah, I love Asian guys. Only because I’m Asian. Oh, so now you don’t want to be fetishized? Isn’t that something you want us to do? Or is that something you’re actually doing to us? What? No, okay, look … there’s a lot of swinging going on around here. I’m a little dizzy … Then why do you even want to date us anyways? Other than just to prove something to yourself, like I’m just a measure of your masculinity. No. It’s about being equally considered because media … Okay, if we have the same interest, lifestyle, sense of humor, taste, then yeah, we’ll talk. Like any other relationship. But if I’m just a trophy to you then … Okay. So this conversation can get pretty deep and could be a complete short on its own. But for now, let’s move on before we get too carried away. Look, man. I think it’s time to just acknowledge that there are beautiful relationships of all types out there. Sure, there are some bad examples of racial profiling in the dating world, and the history of mainstream media’s representation of us sucks. But don’t let that make you jaded. Ultimately, it’s up to you to be confident, open-minded and not so angry. Everyone has their own story and reasons. Who are we to get all riled up about it? Finding love is hard enough. Why worry about what color that love is? Wow. That was beautiful, man. Dude, thanks so much, Steve. I’ve learned so much today. Really? Ten years later, and no concern for guys like me. Haha, wow. Hey guys, I’m so sorry for judging you guys earlier. I mean, people can’t always control who or what they’re attracted to, and if being together makes you guys happy, that’s most important. Thanks, that’s really mature of you. But I’m not with him. Oh, my bad. Yeah, he’s just a friend. Yep. Oh my God, he thought we were dating. Isn’t that hilarious? So hilarious. [Laughter] I mean you’re like my best guy friend. I know, right? Can we talk about the real issue here? The entire country thinks I’m a national threat. We’re the most non-violent people in the world. We gave you Gandhi. And I’m a mobile app entrepreneur. I drive a Ferrari. Where are my girls at? Oh hey, what’s going on? Hey, you know what they say. Once you go brown, you’ve made a sound decision, ‘cuz we’re educated, I come from a good family and I will love you forever. What’s up, everyone? Hope you guys liked that short. We had a lot of fun making it. Yellow Fever 2 Yep. It’s been 10 years since the original. I cannot believe it’s been that long. You know, we, we, we knew that the ten year anniversary was coming up of this really, really important short in Wong Fu’s history, and we just wanted to make something to commemorate that. And, and that’s why we just want to revisit It’s not a true sequel. I know it’s called Yellow Fever 2, it’s not a real sequel, but we just wanted to come back to it. It’s more of a reboot update video that talks about a lot of new perspectives that weren’t touched upon in the original, right? That’s true. We didn’t address a lot of angles and perspectives in the original. So, glad you liked it. Hope you liked it, and be sure to watch the bloopers. And also, watch the original, too, if you guys are curious where the inspiration came from back when we made this in college. We were, we were in college back then, when we first made it. And yeah, subscribe for more videos. We got a lot in store coming, and we’ll see you guys next time. Bye.

    Question, is it fetishizing when you're a black female who has grown up in your inner city community along with Asians (I've always had Asian friends guys and girls) but you also grew up in a time when dating each other was "Taboo"  an absolute no no, for each (YET) you've  always found Asian men attractive (among other ethnic groups besides your own)  & after College when certain opportunities open up to date an Asian guys, you take them, (BUT) your attraction is because you had other common interest's? What if out of all the guys you've dated, the Asian guys were the best dating experiences you've had?  It bites when people sling that word "Fetishizing" around for everything that is not ethnically homogeneous relationships. Black girls get labeled for this the most when not dating within our own race.

    The new message nowadays is that if Asian men bring up the "unbalanced" dating sphere of how Asian girls date outside of their race, we are being "possessive". That's not the message at all. We are pointing out the alarming rates that Asian women date outside of their own race in preface to White Men.
    Here's some fun things to think about: Why is Asian Women dating White Men at a higher alarming percentage than Latino or Black men? Racial undertone. White Men are seen as the beautiful race.
    Why is only Asian Women the only ones saying "Dating an Asian men is like dating my brother."; never heard a white, brown or black person say that before.
    Why is, by statistical measures, Asian men need at least a 3-4 times the salary of white men to have the same dating power?
    Why on, dating sites or apps, Asian men find themselves in negative percentages of dating approval (last in all the races)?

    So the next time people or a popular YouTube channel makes a video that totally dismisses the issue – dislike it. Its bullshit. There is a clear problem and no, Asian men don't care who you date – we are addressing an issue that plagues our community. The problem isn't you dating White Men, the problem is Asian Women not supporting or addressing the issue with us without trying to make us look like the enemy.

    Dating white girls are like their dream, and there is even a saying that you can target the forergner who is into Japanese culture, sex is always not a big deal to white people! So it's not that hard if you wanna try white girls! …Blablabla
    Its so unrespectful and so disgusting.
    There are even tons of article were written to teach Japanese guy to date "blondes with blue eyes"
    So people, treat others with your heart not with your whatever fever.
    People say lots of white people are racist, but actually lots of Asians also are!!

    2:05 Exactly! Same-race relationships are actually more common than interracial, not saying they're better because neither is better than the other. They're equally beautiful as long as they're mutual and healthy and I'm probably going to get a lot of hate comments from gatekeeping misogynists for saying this.

    While I'm an Asian female who prefers dating Asian males I still feel like I'm part of the minority (because whenever I reveal I prefer other Asians, I get guilt-tripped and told that I should date outside my race) because of where I live and what I've been exposed to even though I'm actually part of the majority. I have absolutely nothing against interracial dating. If it's okay to date within your own race then it should be okay to be in an interracial relationship because there should be no double standard and this is coming from someone who prefers to date their own kind. Interracial is not better than same-race and same-race is not better than interracial. This is why I believe people shouldn't be making it a big deal if someone dates within or outside of their own race, it's their life, not yours. Nobody has the right to police other people's love lives. From what I noticed, it's mostly Asian female-obsessed white guys and Asian male-obsessed white girls who hate it when Asians date their own kind.

    But I absolutely hate the fetishists who constantly ruin the image of interracial relationships. Stop giving interracial couples a bad name. If you want to date someone outside of their race, treat them like a human being, not an object or a god because they're people who happen to be of a different race and don't expect them to "meet the standards" of racial/ethnic stereotypes. Also, I hate it when people assume that interracial relationships are inherently non-racist when they can be. Being in an interracial relationship does not guarantee the erasure of racism. Plus racism isn't just hatred, it's also disrespect and objectification. There are lots of sick and twisted people out there who only like the Asians who fit stereotypes because to them, the ones who don't fit Asian stereotypes are "fake Asians" and "not Asian enough".

    Oh yeah, it annoys me so much that society considers both interracial and same-race relationships racist smh. I guess I should marry a coffee table or an alarm clock.

    do you know how hard it is for an actual girl from Africa,not a black american,an African to get a chance w/ an Asian because they think we stink,can't speak proper English or coz they think we loud and stupid.
    and don't come at me w/ culture bullshit because Africans also have relationships w/ our own ppl because of cultural differences but some ppl don't care because love ain't based on culture,
    most of the time they don't wanna date coz some of em are racist n stereotypical n don't actually think that a lot of us are quiet and not loud n ghetto, i'm sorry if i sound like a butt-hurt brown teen but there's a comment section for a reason.

    The way I see it is, you don't have to be jealous of other people's relationship. I used to envy other guys, thinking things like "How come this doesnt happen to me?" I believe the way to go about this is to keep an open mind, be genuine, and the people who will be a good match will gravitate towards you. Don't be a tryhard. Don't do things you only do on dates but down the road isn't "you." Be true to yourself. Have something that you're passionate about. Nothing is more attractive than a person who already has his or her life in order. You can't be expecting a relationship to fix everything, whether it is your heartbreak/loneliness. You should find yourself first.

    Aite aite aite, real talk though, there are some Asian's who are entirely biased and some older generations applaud women for marrying a white guy because they are considered classy and rich. Don't @ me because those are not my words but some of my coworkers and peers in my life. You can say that I hang with shitty and shallow people but I also interact with a wide variety of people through my work as a hairstylist and I can kinda see where the arrow points in terms of sexual preferances when it comes to my female Asian clients.
