Folks have been getting together with other folks for centuries.  People who suddenly find themselves in "situations" inevitably do what "people" do.  They seek companionship, be it for a moment or a lifetime.  Due to a shortage of Chinese women,  or an over abundance of Chinese men, however you choose to look at it,  Chinese male migrant workers in Africa are taking up with African women and are doing what comes "naturally".  And not just doing "that",  but Chinese men are marrying and having children with African women.  I'll discuss this recent phenomenon and other unique pairings throughout history.  Also,  is a shortage of men or women within an ethnic group a valid reason to seek a partner outside?  Hopefully we'll have a very qualified guest to join in! ; )
