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. In the 19th century and early 20th century, there was a network of small numbers of Chinese and Japanese prostitutes being trafficked across Asia , in countries such as China, Japan, Korea , Singapore and British India , in what was then known as the "Yellow Slave Traffic".
There was also a network of prostitutes from continental Europe being trafficked to India , Ceylon , Singapore, China and Japan at around the same time, in what was then known as the "White Slave Traffic". 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.
