Some African men chose Native American women as their partners because their children would be free, as the child's status followed that of the mother. University of Chicago Press. When Burma was ruled under the administration of British India, millions of Indians , mostly Muslim, migrated there.

Women in World History: Intermarriage between Chinese men and native Malagasy women was not uncommon. Opinions in the U. These words, much older than the term miscegenation , are derived from the Late Latin mixticius for "mixed", which is also the root of the Spanish word mestizo. Man who threatened Notley and PM sentenced. Whitten; Arlene Torres
Violation of this was condemned as Rassenschande lit. The Prohibition of Mixed Marriages Act in South Africa, enacted in , banned intermarriage between different racial groups, including between whites and non-whites. The Immorality Act , enacted in , also made it a criminal offense for a white person to have any sexual relations with a person of a different race. Both laws were repealed in Africa has a long history of interracial mixing with male Arab and European explorers, traders and soldiers having sexual relations with black African women as well as taking them as wives.
Arabs played a big role in the African slave trade and unlike the trans-atlantic slave trade most of the black African slaves in the Arab slave trade were women. Most of them were used as sexual slaves by the Arab men and some were even taken as wives. Sir Richard Francis Burton writes, during his expedition to Africa, about relationships between black women and white men: In South Africa there are big mulatto communities like the Coloureds and Griqua formed by White colonists taking native African wives.
In the former Portuguese Africa now known as Angola , Mozambique and Cape Verde racial mixing between white Portuguese and black Africans was fairly common, especially in Cape Verde where the majority of the population is of mixed descent.
There have been some recorded cases of Chinese merchants and labourers taking African wives throughout Africa as many Chinese workers were employed to build railways and other infrastructural projects in Africa. These labour groups were made up completely of men with very few Chinese women coming to Africa.
Many of their offsprings have gained prominent positions in Africa. Jean Ping , the son of a Chinese trader and a black Gabonese mother, became the deputy prime minister as well as the foreign minister of Gabon and was the Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union from to Nicolas Grunitzky , who was the son of a white German father and a Togolese mother, became the second president of Togo after a coup.
Indian men, who have long been traders in East Africa , sometimes married among local African women. These interracial unions were mostly unilateral marriages between Indian men and East African women.
In the late 19th to early 20th century, Chinese men in Mauritius married Indian women due to a lack of Chinese women and the higher numbers of Indian women on the island. However, due to the lack of Chinese females entering the country, the Chinese men eventually established sexual unions with Indian women. Eventually their attitudes changed as well and Chinese men established sexual relationships with Indian women.
In the last years, various ethnic groups Africans , Chinese , English , French , Gujarati Indians , Tamil Indians have arrived and settled on the island. There have been mixed race people on the island since its first permanent inhabitation in There was frequent intermixing between the Austronesian and Bantu-speaking populations of Madagascar. A large number of the Malagasy today are the result of admixture between Austronesians and Africans.
This is most evident in the Mikea, who are also the last known Malagasy population to still practice a hunter-gatherer lifestyle. Additional information is that most of the African admixture is patrilineal while most of the Austronesian admixture is matrilineal.
This means that the majority of the intermixing were between black African males and Austronesian females. Maximum-likelihood estimates favour a scenario in which Madagascar was settled approximately years ago by a very small group of women of approximately Intermarriage between Chinese men and native Malagasy women was not uncommon.
For example, the census found 1, "irregular" Chinese-Malagasy unions and legitimate, i. Children were registered by their mothers under a Malagasy name. Historically, "race mixing" between black and white people was taboo in the United States. So-called anti-miscegenation laws , barring blacks and whites from marrying or having sex, were established in colonial America as early as Thomas Jefferson 's policy proposal for dealing with Native Americans was "to let our settlements and theirs meet and blend together, to intermix, and become one people.
The historical taboo among American whites surrounding white-black relationships can be seen as a historical consequence of the oppression and racial segregation of African-Americans.
The first laws banning interracial marriage were introduced in the late 17th century in the slave-holding colonies of Virginia and Maryland Later these laws also spread to colonies and states where slavery did not exist. It has also been argued [ by whom? The bans in Virginia and Maryland were established at a time when slavery was not yet fully institutionalized.
At the time, most forced laborers on the plantations were predominately white indentured servants. Some historians have suggested that the at-the-time unprecedented laws banning interracial marriage were originally invented by planters as a divide and rule tactic after the uprising of servants in Bacon's Rebellion.
According to this theory, the ban on interracial marriage was issued to split up the racially mixed, increasingly mixed-race labour force into whites, who were given their freedom, and blacks, who were later treated as slaves rather than as indentured servants.
By forbidding interracial marriage, it became possible to keep these two new groups separated and prevent a new rebellion. In , there was considerable controversy in Arizona when an Asian-Indian farmer B. Singh married the sixteen-year-old daughter of one of his white tenants. However, during slavery many white American men and women did conceive children with black partners. These children automatically became slaves if the mother was a slave or were born free if the mother was free, as slavery was matrilineal.
Many children of these unions formed enclaves under names such as Colored and Gens de couleur , etc. The Motion Picture Production Code of , also known as Hays Code , explicitly stated that the depiction of "miscegenation The plaintiffs in Loving v. Virginia , Mildred Jeter and Richard Loving became the historically most prominent interracial couple in the US through their legal struggle against this act.
Throughout American history, there has been frequent mixing between Native Americans and black Africans. When Native Americans invaded the European colony of Jamestown, Virginia in , they killed the Europeans but took the African slaves as captives, gradually integrating them. Interracial relationships occurred between African Americans and members of other tribes along coastal states. During the transitional period of Africans becoming the primary race enslaved, Native Americans were sometimes enslaved with them.
Africans and Native Americans worked together, some even intermarried and had mixed children. The relationship between Africans and Native-Americans was seen as a threat to Europeans and European-Americans, who actively tried to divide Native-Americans and Africans and put them against each other.
During the 18th Century, some Native American women turned to freed or runaway African men due to a major decline in the male population in Native American villages. At the same time, the early slave population in America was disproportionately male. Records show that some Native American women bought African men as slaves. Unknown to European sellers, the women freed and married the men into their tribe. Some African men chose Native American women as their partners because their children would be free, as the child's status followed that of the mother.
The men could marry into some of the matrilineal tribes and be accepted, as their children were still considered to belong to the mother's people. As European expansion increased in the Southeast, African and Native American marriages became more numerous. These two counties had the highest rates of interracial marriages involving at least one black spouse in the United States. The vast majority of these marriages involved black men marrying ethnic Mexican women or first generation Tejanas Texas-born women of Mexican descent.
Since ethnic Mexicans were considered white by Texas officials and the U. Yet, there is no evidence that anyone in South Texas was prosecuted for violating this law. The rates of this interracial marriage dynamic can be traced back to when black men moved into the Lower Rio Grande Valley after the Civil War ended.
They married into ethnic Mexican families and joined other black people who found sanctuary on the U. In the mid 19th to 20th centuries, the Chinese that migrated were almost entirely of Cantonese origin. Hundreds of thousands of Chinese men in the U. S, mostly of Cantonese origin from Taishan migrated to the United States.
Anti-miscegenation laws in many states prohibited Chinese men from marrying white women. After the Emancipation Proclamation, many Chinese Americans migrated to the Southern states, particularly Arkansas, to work on plantations. In , based on Liang research, of the , men in more than 20 Chinese communities in the United States, he estimated that one out of every twenty Chinese men Cantonese was married to a white woman.
Accusations of support for miscegenation were commonly made by slavery defenders against Abolitionists before the Civil War. After the war, similar charges were used by white segregationists against advocates of equal rights for African Americans. They were said to be secretly plotting the destruction of the white race through miscegenation.
In the s, segregationists alleged a Communist plot funded by the Soviet Union with that goal. In , segregationists cite the anti-semitic hoax A Racial Program for the Twentieth Century as evidence for these claims. Bob Jones University banned interracial dating until Asians were specifically included in some state laws. Sharp decision in In the United States, segregationists, including modern Christian Identity groups, have claimed that several passages in the Bible ,  for example the stories of Phinehas and of the so-called " curse of Ham ," should be understood as referring to miscegenation and that certain verses expressly forbid it.
Most theologians read these verses and references as forbidding interreligious marriage, rather than interracial marriage. Interracial marriage has become increasingly accepted in the United States as a result of the Civil Rights movement.
Nevertheless, as late as , a Louisiana justice of the peace refused to issue a marriage license to an interracial couple, justifying the decision on grounds of concern for any children the couple might have. Most Asiatic-Hawaiians men also married Hawaiians and European women and vice versa.
On the census some Chinese with little native blood would be classified as Chinese, not as Asiatic-Hawaiians due to dilution of native blood. Intermarriage started to decline in the s. For two years ending 30 June , 38 of these children were born; they were classified as pure Chinese because their fathers were Chinese.
About , Cantonese coolies and migrants almost all males were shipped during — to Latin America; many of them intermarried and cohabited with the Black, Mestizo, and European population of Cuba, Peru, Guyana, and Trinidad.
In addition, Latin American societies also witnessed growth in both Church-sanctioned and common law marriages between Africans and the non colored. One estimate for Chinese-Peruvian mixture is about 1. There were almost no women among the nearly entirely male Chinese coolie population that migrated to Peru and Cuba.
In Peru and Cuba some Indian Native American , mulatto, black, and white women engaged in carnal relations or marriages with Chinese men, with marriages of mulatto, black, and white woman being reported by the Cuba Commission Report and in Peru it was reported by the New York Times that Peruvian black and Indian Native women married Chinese men to their own advantage and to the disadvantage of the men since they dominated and "subjugated" the Chinese men despite the fact that the labor contract was annulled by the marriage, reversing the roles in marriage with the Peruvian woman holding marital power, ruling the family and making the Chinese men slavish, docile, "servile", "submissive" and "feminine" and commanding them around, reporting that "Now and then Most did not marry, but Hung Hui According to Osberg, In the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Chinese men Cantonese engaged in sexual activity with white and black Cuban women, and from such relations many children were born.
For a British Caribbean model of Chinese cultural retention through procreation with black women, see Patterson, Cuba 15 May the authors estimated , people with Chinese-Cuban ancestry and only pure Chinese.
The study did not include any people with some Chinese ancestry. All the samples were white and black Cubans. The Chinese in Costa Rica originated from Cantonese male migrants. Newman , as much as ten percent of the people in Costa Rica are Chinese, if counting the people who are Chinese, married to a Chinese, or of mixed Chinese descent. Many men came alone to work, married Costa Rican women, and speak Cantonese. However, the majority of the descendants of the first Chinese immigrants no longer speak Cantonese and think of themselves as full Costa Ricans.
Up to the s men made up the vast majority of the Costa Rican Chinese community. Many Africans in Costa Rica also intermarried with other races. In Cartago itself, two African males were enumerated with Spanish wives and three with Indian wives, while nine African females were married to Indian males. Spaniards rarely cohabited with mulatto women except in the cattle range region bordering Nicaragua to the north.
There as well, two Spanish women were living with African males. Miscegenation has never been illegal in the British West Indies, and the populations of Guyana,    Belize,    Jamaica,   and Trinidad. In Mexico, the concept of mestizaje or the cultural and racial amalgamation is an integral part of the country's identity. While frequently seen as a mixture of the indigenous and Spanish, Mexico has had a notable admixture of African and Asian heritage since the Colonial era.
Such relationships were still not accepted by the church however. Black female slaves also did not gain any freedom from such unions. In Buenos Aires in , only 2. In , the figures increased to 3. Racial mixing increased even further as more African men began enlisting in the army. Between and only Between and , this number increased to This led to a sexual imbalance between African men and women in Argentine. Unions between African women and non-colored men became more common in the wake of massive Italian immigration to the country.
This led one African male editorial commentator to quip that, given to the sexual imbalance in the community, black women who "could not get bread would have to settle for pasta". There were many instances when black and mulatto men would intermarry with Mayan and other native women in Guatemala. These unions were more common in some regions than others. In Escuintla called Escuintepeque at the time , the Pipil-speaking natives who lived at higher elevations tended to live away from the lowland coastal hot lands where black and mulatto men were concentrated.
Yet, as black men grew in number during this period — , a tendency developed for them to marry native women. Thus the smaller African population had less opportunity for endogamy and was disappearing by the early 18th Century as blacks married Mayans and mulattoes married mestizos and lower-ranking Spaniards. But black men frequently married Mayan women in informal unions, which resulted in a significant population of mestizaje here and throughout the coastal region.
In the Valle de las Vacas, black male slaves also intermarried with Mayan women. In El Salvador, there was frequent intermarriage between black male slaves and Amerindian women. Many of these slaves intermarried with Amerindian women in hopes of gaining freedom if not for themselves, then their offspring. Many mixed African and Amerindian children resulted from these unions. The Spanish tried to prevent such Afro-Amerindian unions, but the mixing of the two groups could not be prevented.
Slaves continued to pursue natives with the prospect of freedom. According to Richard Price's book Maroon Societies , it is documented that during the colonial period that Amerindian women would rather marry black men than Amerindian men, and that black men would rather marry Amerindian women than black women so that their children will be born free.
Price quoted this from a history by H. Bancroft published in referring to colonial Mexico. El Salvador's African population lived under similar circumstances, and the mixing between black men and native women was common during colonial times. During the colonial period, many black people often intermarried with the native population mostly Aymara.
The result of these relationships was the blending between the two cultures Aymara and Afro-Bolivian. After Bolivia's Agrarian Reform of , black people like indigenous people migrated from their agricultural villages to the cities of La Paz, Cochabamba, and Santa Cruz in search of better educational and employment opportunities. Related to this, black individuals began intermarrying with people of a lighter skin coloring such as blancos whites and mestizos.
This was done as a means of better integration for themselves, and especially their children, into Bolivian society. In Haiti , there is a sizable percentage within the minority who are of Asian descent. Haiti is also home to Marabou peoples, a half East Indian and half African people who descent from East Indian immigrants who arrived from other Caribbean nations, such Martinique and Guadeloupe and African slave descendants.
Most present-day descendants of the original Marabou are products of hypodescent and, subsequently, mostly of African in ancestry. The country also has a sizable Japanese and Chinese Haitian population.
One of the country's most notable Afro-Asians is the late painter Edouard Wah who was born to a Chinese immigrant father and Afro-Haitian mother. North American and European women most of them over the age of 40 visit Jamaica and Haiti every year for sex with young men mostly in their 20s. When black and Indian women had children with Chinese men the children were called chaina raial in Jamaican English.
The study "Y-chromosomal diversity in Haiti and Jamaica: Contrasting levels of sex-biased gene flow" shows the paternal Chinese haplogroup O-M at a frequency of 3. Inter-ethnic marriage in Southeast Asia dates back to the spread of Indian culture , Hinduism and Buddhism to the region. From the 1st century onwards, mostly male traders and merchants from the Indian subcontinent frequently intermarried with the local female populations in Cambodia , Burma , Champa , Central Siam , the Malay Peninsula , and Malay Archipelago.
From the 9th century onwards, a large number of mostly male Arab traders from the Middle East settled down in the Malay Peninsula and Malay Archipelago, and they intermarried with the local Malay , Indonesian and female populations in the islands later called the Philippines.
This contributed to the spread of Islam in Southeast Asia. This tradition continued among Portuguese traders who also intermarried with the local populations. From the tenth to twelfth century, Persian women were to be found in Guangzhou Canton , some of them in the tenth century like Mei Zhu in the harem of the Emperor Liu Chang , and in the twelfth century large numbers of Persian women lived there, noted for wearing multiple earrings and "quarrelsome dispositions". Some , Amerasians stayed in Vietnam after the fall of Saigon.
Some Indo Dutch women, captured in Dutch colonies in Asia, were forced into sexual slavery. Indonesian invasion of East Timor and West Papua caused the murders of approximately , to , West Papuans and many thousands of women raped. Sex tourism has emerged in the late 20th century as a controversial aspect of Western tourism and globalization. Sex tourism is typically undertaken internationally by tourists from wealthier countries. Author Nils Ringdal alleges that three out of four men between the ages of 20 and 50 who have visited Asia or Africa have paid for sex.
Female sex tourism also emerged in the late 20th century in Bali. Tens of thousands of single women throng the beaches of Bali in Indonesia every year. For decades, young Balinese men have taken advantage of the louche and laid-back atmosphere to find love and lucre from female tourists—Japanese, European and Australian for the most part—who by all accounts seem perfectly happy with the arrangement.
There have been various periods in the history of China where a number of Arabs , Persians and Turks from the western regions Central Asia and West Asia migrated to China, beginning with the arrival of Islam during the Tang Dynasty in the 7th century. Due to the majority of these immigrants being male, some decided to intermarry with local Chinese females.
Intermarriage was initially discouraged by the Tang Dynasty. In Lu Chun was appointed as governor of Canton, he was disgusted to find Chinese living with foreigners and intermarriage between Chinese and foreigners. Lu enforced separation, banning interracial marriages, and made it illegal for foreigners to own property. Lu Chun believed his principles were just and upright. Iranian, Arab and Turkic women also occasionally migrated to China and mixed with Chinese. During the Sui dynasty, ten young dancing girls were sent from Persia to China.
During the Tang dynasty bars were often attended by Iranian or Sogdian waitresses who performed dances for clients. He then converted to Islam. By the 14th century, the total population of Muslims in China had grown to 4 million. In order to contain the violence, the Ming administration instituted a policy where all West and Central Asian males were required to intermarry with native Chinese females, hence assimilating them into the local population. Their descendants are today known as the Hui people.
In the frontier districts of Sichuan , numerous half Chinese-Tibetans were found. Tibetan women were glad to marry Chinese traders and soldiers.
Chinese men also married Turkic Uyghur women in Xinjiang from to Sometimes poverty influenced Uyghur women to marry Chinese. These marriages were not recognized by local mullahs since Muslims women were not allowed to marry non-Muslim men under Islamic law. This did not stop the women because they enjoyed advantages, such as not being subject to certain taxes.
Uyghur women married to Chinese also did not have to wear a veil and they received their husband's property upon his death. These women were forbidden from being buried in Muslim graves. The children of Chinese men and Uyghur women were considered as Uyghur. Some Chinese soldiers had Uyghur women as temporary wives, and after the man's military service was up, the wife was left behind or sold, and if it was possible, sons were taken, and daughters were sold. One Chinese scholar Zhang Jingsheng wrote essays in and in various Chinese journals praising the advantages of miscegenation between Russians and Chinese, saying that interracial sex would promote greater understandings between the two peoples, and produce children with the best advantages of both peoples.
European travellers noted that many Han Chinese in Xinjiang married Uyghur who were called turki women and had children with them. A Chinese was spotted with a "young" and "good looking" Uyghur wife and another Chinese left behind his Uyghur wife and child in Khotan.
After , some intermarriage between Han and Uyghur peoples continued. A Han married a Uyghur woman in and had three daughters with her, and other cases of intermarriage also continued. Ever since the s, African students were allowed by the Chinese government to study in China as friendly relations with Africans and African-related people was important to CCP's "Third World" coalition. Many African male students began to intermingle with the local Chinese women. Relationships between black men and Chinese women often led to numerous clashes between Chinese and African students in the s as well as grounds for arrest and deportation of African students.
The Nanjing anti-African protests of were triggered by confrontations between Chinese and Africans. New rules and regulations were made in order to stop African men from consorting with Chinese women.
Two African men who were escorting Chinese women on a Christmas Eve party were stopped at the gate and along with several other factors escalated. The Nanjing protests lasted from Christmas Eve of to January Many new rules were set after the protests ended, including one where black men could only have one Chinese girlfriend at a time whose visits were limited to the lounge area. There is a small but growing population of mixed marriages between male African mostly Nigerian traders and local Chinese women in the city of Guangzhou where it is estimated that in there are African-Chinese families.
The state, fearing fraud marriages, has strictly regulated matters. In order to obtain government-issued identification which is required to attend school , the children must be registered under the Chinese mother's family name.
Many African fathers, fearing that in doing so, they would relinquish their parental rights, have instead chosen to not send their children to school. There are efforts to open an African-Chinese school but it would first require government authorization.
Koxinga took Hambroek's teenage daughter as a concubine,    and Dutch women were sold to Chinese soldiers to become their wives.
In some of these Dutch wives were still captives of the Chinese. Some Dutch physical looks like auburn and red hair among people in regions of south Taiwan are a consequence of this episode of Dutch women becoming concubines to the Chinese commanders. Many Tanka women conceived children with foreign men. Ernest John Eitel mentioned in how an important change had taken place among Eurasian girls, the offspring of illicit connections: Many Hong Kong born Eurasians were assimilated into the Hong Kong society by intermarriage with the Cantonese population.
Kwan was of Eurasian origin, born in in Hong Kong to a father who was a Cantonese architect and mother who is a model of British and Scottish descent. The martial artist Bruce Lee had a Cantonese father and a Eurasian mother. Ernest John Eitel controversially claimed that most "half caste" people in Hong Kong were descended exclusively from Europeans having relationship with Tanka women. The theory that most of the Eurasian mixed race Hong Kong people are descended only from Tanka women and European men, and not ordinary Cantonese women, has been backed up by other researchers who pointed out that Tanka women freely consorted with foreigners due to the fact that they were not bound by the same Confucian traditions as the Cantonese, and having a relationship with a European man was advantageous for Tanka women, but Lethbridge criticized it as "a 'myth' propagated by xenophobic Cantonese to account for the establishment of the Hong Kong Eurasian community".
Carl Smith's study in late s on the protected women seems, to some degree, to support Ernest John Eitel's theory. Smith says that the Tankas experienced certain restrictions within the traditional Chinese social structure. Being a group marginal to the traditional Chinese society of the Puntis Cantonese , they did not have the same social pressure in dealing with Europeans. The ordinary Cantonese women did not sleep with European men, thus the Eurasian population was formed mostly from Tanka and European admixture.
They invaded Hongkong the moment the settlement was started, living at first on boats in the harbour with their numerous families, gradually settling on shore. They have maintained ever since almost a monopoly of the supply of pilots and ships' crews, of the fish trade and the cattle trade, but unfortunately also of the trade in girls and women. Strange to say, when the settlement was first started, it was estimated that some 2, of these Tan-ka people had flocked to Hongkong, but at the present time they are about the same number, a tendency having set in among them to settle on shore rather than on the water and to disavow their Tan-ka extraction in order to mix on equal terms with the mass of the Chinese community.
The half-caste population in Hongkong were, from the earliest days of the settlement of the Colony and down to the present day, almost exclusively the off-spring of these Tan-ka people. But, like the Tan-ka people themselves, they are happily under the influence of a process of continuous re-absorption into the mass of the Chinese residents of the Colony.
South Asians have been living in Hong Kong throughout the colonial period, before the independence in into the nations of India and Pakistan. They migrated to Hong Kong and worked as police officers as well as army officers during colonial rule.
The early Macanese ethnic group was formed from Portuguese men intermarrying with Malay, Japanese and Indian women. In , the total population of Macao was about 4,, of which 1, were white men, 1, were white women, were male slaves, and were female slaves. In , the population increased to 4, and the breakdown was 1, white men, 2, white women, male slaves and female slaves. There is reason to speculate that large numbers of white women were involved in some forms of prostitution which would probably explain the abnormality in the ratio between men and women among the white population.
Very rarely did Chinese women of higher status agree to marry a Westerner. As Deolinda argues in one of her short stories, "even should they have wanted to do so out of romantic infatuation, they would not be allowed to. Macanese men and women also married with the Portuguese and Chinese; as a result some Macanese became indistinguishable from the Chinese or Portuguese population.
Because the majority of the Chinese population who migrated to Macao was Cantonese, Macao became a Cantonese speaking society, and other ethnic groups became fluent in Cantonese. Most Macanese had paternal Portuguese heritage until After the handover of Macao to China in many Macanese migrated to other countries. Of the Portuguese and Macanese women who stayed in Macao, many married local Cantonese men, and so many Macanese also now have Cantonese paternal heritage.
There are between 25,—46, Macanese, but only 5,—8, live in Macao, while most live in Latin America, the U. Unlike the Macanese of Macao who are strictly of Chinese and Portuguese heritage, many Macanese living abroad have intermarried with the local population of the U. Genetic analysis of the Hazara people indicate partial Mongolian ancestry.
Mongols settled in what is now Afghanistan and mixed with native populations who spoke Persian. A second wave of mostly Chagatai Mongols came from Central Asia and were followed by other Mongolic groups, associated with the Ilkhanate and the Timurids , all of whom settled in Hazarajat and mixed with the local, mostly Persian-speaking population, forming a distinct group.
It also detected Sub-Saharan African lineages in both the paternal and maternal ancestry of Hazara.. Among the Hazara's there are 7. The Indian subcontinent has a long history of inter-ethnic marriage dating back to ancient history.
Various groups of people have been intermarrying for millennia in South Asia , including speakers of the Dravidian , Indo-Aryan , Austroasiatic and Tibeto-Burman languages. The origins and affinities of the approximately 1 billion people living on the subcontinent of India have long been contested. This is owing, in part, to the many different waves of immigrants that have influenced the genetic structure of India.
In the most recent of these waves, Indo-European -speaking nomadic groups from the Near East, Anatolia and the Caucasus migrated to India. Much of this was simply conjecture , fueled by British imperialism ;  British policies of divide and rule as well as enumeration of the population into rigid categories during the tenure of British rule in India contributed towards the hardening of these segregated caste identities.
Mallory , Edwin Bryant , and others, have disputed the claim of "Aryan Invasion". Some researchers claim that genetic similarities to Europeans were more common in members of the higher ranks. However, other researchers have criticized and contradicted this claim. A study conducted by the Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology in in collaboration with Harvard Medical School , Harvard School of Public Health and the Broad Institute of Harvard and MIT analyzed half a million genetic markers across the genomes of individuals from 25 ethnic groups from 13 states in India across multiple caste groups.
In Goa , a Portuguese colony in India , during the late 16th century and 17th century, there was a community of over thousand Japanese slaves and traders, who were either Japanese Christians fleeing persecution in Japan,  or young Japanese women and girls brought or captured as sexual slaves by Portuguese traders and their South Asian lascar crew members from Japan. One example of an interracial liaison during colonial times involved Hyderabadi noblewoman Khair-un-Nissa and her relationship to Scottish resident James Achilles Kirkpatrick.
The ,strong Anglo-Indian community was formed by British and Indian relationships. Such relationships have had an influence on the arts. The novel "Two Leaves and a Bud" by Ananda depicts Indian laborer women in India being preyed upon and seduced by the British Manager Reggie Hunt after he gives them bangles and nose rings. In Ceylon present day Sri Lanka , interracial relationships between Dutch , British and Portuguese men and local women were common.
The 65,strong Burgher community was formed by the interracial marriages of Dutch and Portuguese men with local Sinhalese and Tamil women. In addition to intermarriage, inter-ethnic prostitution in India was also fairly common at the time, when British officers would frequently visit Indian nautch dancers. In the midth century, there were around 40, British soldiers but fewer than 2, British officials present in India.
In the 19th century and early 20th century, thousands of women and girls from continental Europe were also trafficked into British India and Ceylon , where they worked as prostitutes servicing both British soldiers and local Indian and Ceylonese men. As British females began arriving in British India in large numbers from the early-to-midth century, interracial marriage became increasingly uncommon in India.
Interracial relationships were also despised after the events of India's First War of Independence , where Indian sepoys rebelled against the British East India Company. The idea of protecting British female chastity from the "lustful Indian male" had a significant influence on the policies of the British Raj in order to prevent racial miscegenation between the British females and the native Indian male population.
While some restrictive policies were imposed on British females in order to protect them from miscegenation, most of these policies were directed against native Indian males. For example, the Ilbert Bill , which would have granted Indian judges the right to judge British offenders, was opposed by many British colonialists on the grounds that Indian judges cannot be trusted in dealing with cases involving British females.
When Burma was ruled under the administration of British India, millions of Indians , mostly Muslim, migrated there. The small population of mixed descendants of Indian males and local Burmese females are called "Zerbadees", often in a pejorative sense implying mixed race. In Assam , local Indian women married several waves of Chinese migrants during British colonial times, to the point where it became hard to physically differentiate Chinese in Assam from locals during the time of their internment during the war , and the majority of these Chinese in Assam were married to Indian women, and some of these Indian women were deported to China with their husbands.
In the 19th century, when the British Straits Settlement shipped Chinese convicts to be jailed in India, the Chinese men then settled in the Nilgiri mountains near Naduvattam after their release and married Tamil Paraiyan women, having mixed Chinese-Tamil children with them.
They were documented by Edgar Thurston. Thurston described the colony of the Chinese men with their Tamil pariah wives and children: An ambassador was sent to this miniature Chinese Court with a suggestion that the men should, in return for monies, present themselves before me with a view to their measurements being recorded.
The reply which came back was in its way racially characteristic as between Hindus and Chinese. In the case of the former, permission to make use of their bodies for the purposes of research depends essentially on a pecuniary transaction, on a scale varying from two to eight annas. The Chinese, on the other hand, though poor, sent a courteous message to the effect that they did not require payment in money, but would be perfectly happy if I would give them, as a memento, copies of their photographs.
The colour of the children was more closely allied to the yellowish tint of the father than to the dark tint of the mother; and the semimongol parentage was betrayed in the slant eyes, flat nose, and in one case conspicuously prominent cheek-bones.
Inter-ethnic marriage in Japan dates back to the 7th century, when Chinese and Korean immigrants began intermarrying with the local Japanese population. In the s, over 50, Koreans were forcibly brought to Japan during Hideyoshi's invasions of Korea , where they intermarried with the local population. In the 16th and 17th centuries, around 58, Japanese travelled abroad, many of whom intermarried with the local women in Southeast Asia. Intermarriage with the local populations in these Portuguese colonies also took place.
Portuguese visitors and their South Asian and sometimes African crewmembers often engaged in slavery in Japan , where they bought Japanese slaves who were then taken to Macau and other Portuguese colonies in Southeast Asia , the Americas ,  and India. A large-scale slave trade developed in which Portuguese purchased Japanese as slaves in Japan and sold them to various locations overseas, including Portugal itself, throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries.
Japanese slaves are believed to be the first of their nation to end up in Europe, and the Portuguese purchased large amounts of Japanese slave girls to bring to Portugal for sexual purposes, as noted by the Church in King Sebastian feared that it was having a negative effect on Catholic proselytization since the slave trade in Japanese was growing to massive proporations, so he commanded that it be banned in Japanese slave women were even sold as concubines to black African crewmembers, along with their European counterparts serving on Portuguese ships trading in Japan, mentioned by Luis Cerqueira, a Portuguese Jesuit, in a document.
In , a survey report argued that "the Korean laborers brought to Japan, where they have established permanent residency, are of the lower classes and therefore of inferior constitution By fathering children with Japanese women, these men could lower the caliber of the Yamato minzoku. In , journalist Shigenori Ikeda promoted 21 December as the blood-purity day junketsu de and sponsored free blood tests at the Tokyo Hygiene laboratory.
By the early s, detailed "eugenic marriage" questionnaires were printed or inserted in popular magazines for public consumption. Promoters like Ikeda were convinced that these marriage surveys would not only ensure the eugenic fitness of spouses but also help avoid class differences that could disrupt and even destroy marriage. The goal was to create a database of individuals and their entire households which would enable eugenicists to conduct in-depth surveys of any given family's genealogy.
Kuznetsov, dean of the Department of History of the Irkutsk State University , one of the first researchers of the topic, interviewed thousands of former internees and came to the following conclusion: What is more, romantic relations between Japanese internees and Russian women were not uncommon.
For example, in the city of Kansk , Krasnoyarsk Krai , about 50 Japanese married locals and stayed. Today many Russian women married Japanese men, often for the benefit of long-term residence and work rights. Some of their mixed offspring stay in Japan while other's to Russia.
To prevent venereal diseases and rape by Japanese soldiers and to provide comfort to soldiers and head off espionage, the Imperial Japanese Army established "comfort stations" in the Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere where around , women, mostly from Korea and China, were recruited or kidnapped by the Kempeitai or the Tokeitai as comfort women.
On 19 August , the Home Ministry ordered local government offices to establish a prostitution service for Allied soldiers to preserve the "purity" of the "Japanese race". The official declaration stated that: American Soldiers in Asia and the Pacific during World War II ",  rape "reflects a burning need to establish total dominance of the enemy". Schrijvers states regarding rapes on Okinawa that "The estimate of one Okinawan historian for the entire three-month period of the campaign exceeds 10, A figure that does not seem unlikely when one realizes that during the first 10 days of the occupation of Japan there were 1, reported cases of rape of Japanese women by American soldiers in Kanagawa prefecture alone".
However, despite being told by the Japanese military that they would suffer rape, torture and murder at the hands of the Americans, Japanese civilians "were often surprised at the comparatively humane treatment they received from the American enemy.
Okinawan Responses to Japanese and American Power by Mark Selden , the Americans "did not pursue a policy of torture, rape, and murder of civilians as Japanese military officials had warned. Japanese society , with its ideology of homogeneity, has traditionally been intolerant of ethnic and other differences. In , a United Nations report expressed concerns about racism in Japan and that government recognition of the depth of the problem was not realistic. The Japanese public was thus astounded by the sight of some 45, so-called "pan pan girls" prostitutes fraternizing with American soldiers during the occupation.
The occupation set new relationship models for Japanese men and women: Inter-ethnic marriage in Korea dates back to the arrival of Muslims in Korea during the Middle Ages , when Persian and Turkic navigators, traders and slaves settled in Korea and married local Korean people.

Apart from incidences of violence directly associated with prostitution, an increasing number of women who sell sex have been physically assaulted, and even murdered, in the course of attempts to steal their money and property.
Organised crime rings are increasingly trafficking women into and out of China for the sex trade, sometimes forcibly and after multiple acts of rape. Sexually transmitted diseases also made a resurgence around the same time as prostitution, and have been directly linked to prostitution. There are fears that prostitution may become the main route of HIV transmission as it has in developing countries such as Thailand and India.
Other interventions have been introduced recently at some sites, including STI services, peer education and voluntary counselling and testing for HIV.
North Korean women are increasingly falling victim to sex exploitation in China attempting to escape poverty and harsh conditions in their homeland.
About 10, women The Washington Post 's Carol Douglas, however, claimed that the number was as high as ,  are reported to have escaped from North Korea to China; according to human rights groups, many of them are forced into sexual slavery. When Chinese authorities arrest these North Korean sex slaves, they repatriate them.
South Korean college girls have been sent by brokers to work as prostitutes in China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia due to the popularity of the "Korean wave". A massive ring of South Korean prostitutes serving Chinese men was busted in Macau in Some Korean women wear kiminos while working as prostitutes in Macau.
In Macau many Japanese porn actresses work as prostitutes and their clients are rich Chinese men. Mongolian women work as prostitutes in bars in Beijing,   such as Maggie's. In China, Eastern Europeans and Russians make up most of the white prostitutes. Bars in major Chinese cities offer blonde, blue-eyed Russian "hostesses".
During the 19th century  and in contemporary times, Portuguese prostitutes have operated in Macau. Some Chinese triad members from Macau married Portuguese prostitutes before China took it back from Portugal, providing them with access to Portuguese citizenship. By there were about White Russian prostitutes in Shanghai. Today, many European prostitutes in China market themselves as escorts to attract the attention of visiting businessmen and richer Chinese clients. They may work independently or through an escort agency and advertise their services through the internet.
In Shanghai many Russian women work as prostitutes. In Harbin there are Russian prostitutes and African students patronize them.
China is a recipient of Vietnamese prostitutes. They provide sex mainly to Chinese men. Vietnamese women working as prostitutes in China have been trafficked from Vietnam through various means at the Guangxi border.
On the Chinese border with Vietnam, in the Chinese town of Po-chai, a "Vietnamese girl market" made out of Vietnamese prostitutes offers sex to Chinese men exclusively and refuses service to Vietnamese men. Every year, thousands of women from Kenya, Rwanda or Uganda are ending up in the brothels of China, Indonesia and Malaysia. Hong Kong and Macau are special administrative regions of China and subject to different laws: This has led to a higher incidence of prostitution in these regions than in mainland China.
Women travel from mainland China to Hong Kong and Macau in order to engage in the trade. There are also allegations of women being trafficked for the purpose. Elizabeth Wheeler Andrew — and Katharine Caroline Bushnell 5 February January 26, , who wrote extensively on the position of women in the British Empire, wrote about the Tanka inhabitants of Hong Kong and their position in the prostitution industry, catering towards foreign sailors.
The Tanka did not marry with the Chinese, being descendants of the natives, they were restricted to the waterways. They supplied their women as prostitutes to British sailors and assisted the British in their military actions around Hong Kong  The Tanka in Hong Kong were considered "outcasts" categorized low class.
Ordinary Chinese prostitutes were afraid of serving Westerners since they looked strange to them, while the Tanka prostitutes freely mingled with western men. The Tanka prostitutes were considered to be "low class", greedy for money, arrogant, and treating clients with a bad attitude, they were known for punching their clients or mocking them by calling them names.
The stereotype among most Chinese in Canton that all Tanka women were prostitutes was common, leading the government during the Republican era to accidentally inflate the number of prostitutes when counting, due to all Tanka women being included. Tanka women were ostracized from the Cantonese community, and were nicknamed "salt water girls " ham shui mui in Cantonese for their services as prostitutes to foreigners in Hong Kong.
Tanka women who worked as prostitutes for foreigners also commonly kept a "nursery" Tanka girls specifically for exporting them for prostitution work to overseas Chinese communities such as in Australia or America, or to serve as a Chinese or foreigner's concubine. A report called "Correspondence respecting the alleged existence of Chinese slavery in Hong Kong: The Manchu traveller Qi-yi-shi reported the presence of prostitution among Torghut and Khoshut women in the Karasahr area of Xinjiang in In late 19th and early 20th century Turpan , Islamic modesty meant that Muslim prostitutes would not bare their bodies to clients in the way that Chinese prostitutes did.
The only women in Xinjiang at that time not to wear headscarfs were prostitutes from the poorest social classes. Hunter noted that the poverty of the Turki Muslims Uyghurs resulted in them selling their daughters, and that the practice led to Xinjiang containing significant numbers of Turki prostitutes. Temporary marriage , in the form of the Sunni Muslim misyar marriage "traveller's marriage" contract, is a practice that has sometimes been used as a cover for a form of prostitution.
It allowed a man to marry a woman for a week or even a couple of days, with "the mulla who performs the ceremony arranging for the divorce at the same time". Such a marriage was forbidden by the Koran, and the Turki Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang called it a " marriage of convenience ". After the restoration of Chinese rule in the late 19th century it was common for Chinese soldiers and civilians in the Yarkand area of Xinjiang, including high officials, to take temporary wives, often without a marriage ceremony.
Most of the wives came from Khotan. When the Chinese returned to China proper, their wives were abandoned or sold to friends. The frequent marriages of Chinese men to Muslim Turki women in Xinjiang from occurred despite the fact that Islamic law forbids Muslim women from marrying non-Muslims, and that the Turki community considered such women to be prostitutes. Some foreign commentators suggested that the women involved were motivated by poverty, as such marriages prevented the women from being subject to the tax on prostitution.
Chinese police categorise prostitution practices according to a descending hierarchy of seven tiers, though this typology does not exhaust the forms of practices that exist. While they are all classified as prostitutes, the services they offer can be very different. Within some tiers, for example, there is still some revulsion to the acts of anal sex and oral sex.
In parallel with the wide range of backgrounds for prostitutes, male buyers of sex also come from a wide range of occupational backgrounds. According to the local police, in China there are seven categories of prostitutes: The first and second tiers have become the focus of heated public debate because they are explicitly linked to government corruption. In theory, the "three accompaniments" are chatting, drinking and dancing with their clients. In practice, the "three accompaniments" more often refers to dancing with, drinking with, and being publicly groped by their clients.
These women often begin by allowing their clients to fondle or intimately caress their bodies, then if the client is eager, will engage in sexual intercourse. The lowest two tiers are characterised by a more straightforward exchange of sex for financial or material recompense.
They are neither explicitly linked to government corruption, nor directly mediated through China's new commercial recreational business sector. Women who sell sex in the lowest two tiers usually do so in return for small sums of money, food and shelter.
The PRC rejects the argument that prostitution is an unremarkable transaction between consenting individuals and that prohibition laws constitute a violation of civil liberties. Overall, the PRC's legal response to prostitution is to penalise third party organisers of prostitution.
Participants in the prostitution transaction are still usually penalised according to the Chinese system of administrative sanctions , rather than through the criminal code. Until the s, the subject of prostitution was not viewed as a major concern for the National People's Congress. The PRC's first criminal code, the Criminal Law and the Criminal Procedure Law of made no explicit reference to the activities of prostitutes and prostitute clients.
Prostitution only became a distinct object of statutory classification in the early s. Responding to requests from the Ministry of Public Security and the All-China Women's Federation , the National People's Congress passed legislation that significantly expanded the range and scope of prostitution controls: The PRC's revised Criminal Law of retains its abolitionist focus in that it is primarily concerned with criminalising third-party involvement in prostitution.
For the first time the death penalty may be used, but only in exceptional cases of organising prostitution activities, involving additional circumstances such as repeated offences, rape, causing serious bodily injury , etc. The criminal code codified provisions in the Decision, establishing a system of controls over social place, specifically places of leisure and entertainment.
Government intervention in commercial recreation has found concrete expression in the form of the "Regulations concerning the management of public places of entertainment". The provisions proscribe a range of commercial practices that characterise the activities of female "hostesses".
As a result of strong calls to curb official corruption, during the mid to late s, a whole host of regulations were also introduced to ban government employees both from running recreational venues and from protecting illegal business operations. Following the introduction of these measures, the Chinese media has publicised numerous cases of government officials being convicted and disciplined for abusing their positions for prostitution.
Despite the position of the law, prostitutes are often treated as quasi-criminals by the Ministry of Public Security. Chinese police conduct regular patrols of public spaces , often with the support of mass-line organisations, using a strong presence as a deterrence against prostitution. Because lower tier prostitutes work the streets, they are more likely to be apprehended. Arrests are also more likely to be female sellers of sex than male buyers of sex. The overwhelming majority of men and women who are apprehended are released with a caution and fine.
In response, sellers and buyers of sex have adopted a wide range of tactics designed to avoid apprehension. The spatial mobility which is afforded by modern communications systems, such as mobile phones and pagers , and by modern forms of transportation, such as taxis and private cars , has severely reduced the ability of police to determine exactly who is engaged in acts of solicitation. In tandem with the long-term task of developing preventative policing, the much more visible form of policing have been periodic police-led campaigns.
Anti-prostitution campaigns have been accompanied by nationwide "media blitzes" to publicise the PRC's laws and regulations. This is typically followed by the announcement of arrest statistics, and then by sober official statements suggesting that the struggle to eliminate prostitution will be a long one.
The use of campaigns has been criticised for their reliance on an outdated "ideological" construction and an equally outmoded campaign formula of the s. The primary target of the PRC's prostitution controls throughout the s has been China's burgeoning hospitality and entertainment industry. These culminated in the "strike hard" campaigns of late and Whilst such campaigns may have failed to eradicate prostitution in toto , there is some evidence that regulation of China's recreational venues has helped to create a legitimate female service worker with the right to refuse to engage in practices repugnant to the "valid labour contract", as well as the right to be free from sexual harassment in the workplace.
Chinese police have, however, proven unable to effectively police higher tier prostitution practices. The nature of concubinage and second wife practices makes it more suited as a target of social action campaigns rather than conventional police action. Because of social changes, for example, Chinese police are now professionally constrained not to intrude on people's personal relationships in an overt or coercive manner.

China's Muslim Hui Community: The lowest two tiers are characterised by a more straightforward exchange of sex for financial or material recompense. According to Richard Price's book Maroon Societies , it is documented that during the colonial period that Amerindian women would rather marry black men than Amerindian men, and that black men would rather marry Amerindian women than black women so that their children will be born free.
Borrowing Boulainvilliers ' discourse on the " Nordic race " as being the French aristocracy that invaded the plebeian "Gauls", he showed his contempt for the lowest social class , the Third Estate , calling it "this new people born of slaves In the early days, such women were found usually among the Tanka boat population, a pariah group that infested the Pearl River delta region.
