Dawn Jaro

Dawn Jaro is Justene Jaro‘s older sister. She often seems to get second billing compared to her sister, so I feel kinda bad having featured her second as well. But you know what, I happen to think that she’s cuter than her sister. She has a more Filipina look about her and she has a really sweet smile.

Dawn is on Twitter @DawnJaro.

Reiko Aylesworth

Reiko Aylesworth is an American actress of Dutch, Welsh, and Japanese descent. You might remember her as Tony’s wife Michelle on the TV show 24, or perhaps you have seen her more recently on the TV show Damages. You probably did not see her in her nearly naked glory in the movie The Killing Floor, but you might want to!

She has that vaguely Asian look that is the result of being a quarter Japanese. She’s quite pretty, and she has a great smile!

As usual, Wikipedia is your friend if you want to find out more about her. Also check out her IMDB entry, this interesting fan page, and this even more interesting former fan page.

Interracial marriages on the rise? For Asians, not so much

Posted in Links on June 7th, 2010 by Jody – 1 Comment

Interracial Marriage
A recent Pew study reports that interracial marriages in the U.S. are at an all-time high, having increased from 6.8% of marriages in 1980 to 14.6% in 2008. For Asian-Americans, an even-higher 30% married outside their race in 2008.

However, as Angry Asian Man noted last year and as the Pew study confirms, we’ve actually been seeing a steady decrease in the rate of Asian-Americans entering interracial marriages (it was 42% in 1990 and 33% in 2000), as they are increasingly tending to marry fellow Asians who may have a better understanding of their cultural roots.

But this does not necessarily mean that there will be fewer interracial marriages involving Asian-Americans. After all, the Asian-American population is growing rapidly. As noted by Asian Nation, U.S. Census data indicates that the U.S. Asian population has surged upward in the last 20 years (it grew 63% from 1990 to 2000 alone) and is expected to continue to grow (as per Wikipedia). So there may still be an increase in the number of interracial Asian marriages in the U.S. even as their rate decreases.

The upshot is, it looks like there will still be plenty of half-Asians in future American generations, but probably fewer relative to the number of Asians and mixed non-Asians.

Leilani Dowding

Leilani Dowding

Those of you from the U.S. that have access to U.K. men’s magazines will agree with me that British magazines are far superior to their American equivalents. For one, they show nudity. And for another, they always seem to feature hotter women.

I’ve had many favorites over the years, from Katie Price aka Jordan (circa 1998, before her second boob job) and Rachel Stevens, to Keeley Hazell and Gemma Atkinson, but my favorite UK cover model of all time would have to be Leilani Dowding.

A former winner of the Miss Great Britain beauty pageant, she is half-English and half-Filipina, which gives her a look that’s different from most of the girls featured in the UK mags.

You can check out her Wikipedia entry to find out more about her. You can also follow her on Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, and YouTube. Also check out her official website, her fanclub website, and her fashion line.
