The whole Asian chick with white dude phenomenon isn't exactly new or unnoticed. These interacial couplings have frequently been the source of rampant angst and anger on the Craigslist's Rants and Raves section where posts have ranged from accusations about white guys essentializing Asian females in their supposed submissiveness to the conclusion that your average Asian chick is just hotter than your average white chick to self righteous proclamations that those Asian girls who date white guys are the bottom of the Twinkie barrel and could never score a self-respecting Asian guy if they wanted to. In Yellow Fever, a YouTube video that has been circulating the internet for a while, a couple Asian guys from UCSD take a look at what it takes for an Asian dude to nail a white chick. The video is a long (20 mins) but fairly amusing take (there are some pretty hilarious parts in the middle and the end is downright amazing) at the very real emasculation of Asian males in Western culture. One correction, FAB has NEVER NEVER NEVER found it attractive when white dudes come up and try and impress me by greeting me in some miscellaneous Asian language. Of course, FAB probably can't really talk to this whole phenomenon anyway since I'm not exactly doing my part to even the score.
