Cover photo: With our Best of 2015 post, we would like to pay tribute to Jimmy Boggs, African American, and Grace Lee Boggs, Chinese, who are one of the earliest known prominent Blasian couples. Jimmy and Grace married in 1953 and they were married for 40 years until Jimmy passed in 1993. Grace recently passed at the age of 100 in 2015. They would be so happy to see how much progress Asian and Black couples are making! Much love to Jimmy and Grace!!  See their full tribute here.

Happy New Years to all of our ABCers around the world! We are very thankful for your support and viewership. In this post we will take a look back at the best of 2015 on Asian Black Couples, our first year of operation. Some groups do their best of the year articles in December, but we prefer to wait until the entire year is completed. ABC officially started in March of 2015, so we only completed 10 months in 2015, but it was a very good 10 months. We started ABC, ABC Facebook, and ABC Tumblr, really as just an experiment. It is a topic we had lots of experience with and we had considered doing something like ABC for a long while, so we said let’s try it for one year and see how it goes. We are approaching our official one year mark on March 1, but as of the end of December, ABC + ABC FB + ABC TB are being viewed nearly 40,000 times per month with about 3,000 regularly returning fans and these numbers are steadily growing every month. Overall, that’s not a bad start, but for us, as long as our readers are finding support, learning new things, being exposed to new resources, and enjoying the content and interaction, those are the main things that matter. We will talk about some new goals for 2016 at the end of this post, but let’s dig into the best of 2015 material. Our readers know that we like lists and rankings, so we will use that style as we look at our best of categories across ABC, ABC FB, and ABC TB.

Top Viewed ABC Posts of 2015

This section will show the top posts with the most views on each of the ABC websites in 2015. For ABC FB and ABC TB we list the non-couple posts here and the couple related posts in the next section. We show top 5 for ABC FB and ABC TB while showing top 10 for our main ABC site which has most of the content and traffic.

ABC FB

1. Partnership With Lily Lee and Blasian Family Channel, AKA Lily Petals World. Our partnership with Lily brought a lot of views – Thank you Lily!

ABC11
We are happy to announce that ABC has partnered with Lily Lee and her Blasian Family Channel (BFC) on another project. So for Blasian couples that are interested in sharing their story via video, Lily will conduct a video interview and publish it on BFC. Now you can share your story magazine style via ABC, video interview style via BFC, or both if you like! At ABC and BFC, we simply love Asian and Black couples and we love to tell their stories in a positive way!

2. Lily’s Blasian Dating Show. This is a really good YT dating show, so we are not surprised that it was heavily viewed on FB.

Lily's Blasian Dating Show
I’m sure many here are already watching Lily’s Blasian Dating Show, but if you are not, you really need to check this out. Season one was shot in Korea and season two will be shot in the US on the east coast. If you would like to be a participant in this trailblazing show bringing together Asian and Black couples as either a participant in front of the camera, behind the camera in filming or editing, or as an advertiser, supporter, or investor, please contact Lily asap.

3. Share Your Blasian Couple Love Story. Here are all of the details you need to share your Blasian couple love story with ABC. We hear from so many people how these stories are helping them with their Asian and Black dating situation. These stories help show the power of the Asian and Black worldwide community to help knock down walls between different cultures and help build a more accepting and understanding world.

5. Matchmaker for NYC Great Guy. This was part of our 3 matchmaking experiments on FB. The other two were matching Asian females, but this one matching a great Black guy really surprised us with how much interest it received. FYI – He is spending more time with one of the Asian ladies we introduced him to, but it’s too early yet to say where the relationship is headed.

matchmaker-logo
Ok, time to try another matchmaking experiment. This time we are looking for great older Asian ladies for a super guy and personal friend of mine. This guy is rock solid and has it all. Now he is looking to settle down and get married. The guy is based on the east coast in NY city, but he travels often and he is open to meeting Asian women anywhere in the US or anywhere in the world. Here are his stats and what he is looking for in a lady….

ABC Tumblr

1. Korean Movie, “나의 절친 악당들 (Intimate Enemies)”, Breaks Ground Portraying A Blasian Family. This picture did very well on Tumblr. Other Tumblr pages were copying this photo (without credit to ABC) and collecting massive views.

3. Are Mamé Adjei, Ghanaian American, and Justin Kim, AKA Seoulful J, Korean American, dating? There was lots of speculation about Mamé and Justin, two of the top models from America’s Next Top Model – cycle 22, who looked great together. Despite lots of flirting and coupling on the show, looks like they are going their separate ways after the show.

mame adjei justin kim
Are America’s Next Top Model (ANTM) Cycle 22 contestants, Mamé Adjei, Ghanaian American, and Justin Kim, AKA Seoulful J, Korean American, dating? They look great together! Mamé is the current Miss Maryland 2015 and placed in the Top 5 of the 2015 Miss USA Pageant. Justin is the first full Asian and Korean American to ever compete on ANTM which now includes male and female models. Mamé and Justin met on the current cycle of ANTM – cycle 22 and seemed to have eyes for each other from the beginning of the show with lots of flirting between the two. There are plenty of pictures of the two of them together, and several AMBW groups are claiming them as a couple. So are they dating or not? Our view is that we need more evidence, like statements from both of them that say they are dating post the ANTM show. ANTM is a reality show and they are both models, so pictures and reality show flirting (which is good for ratings) is not enough proof to us. Also we found some places where Mamé says they are just friends or besties, and she is recently shown having googly eyes for a different ANTM male contestant, so we think her relationship with Justin needs more receipts 🙂

4. Jelani Roy, African American, and Jenny Wu, Chinese American, a blind dating couple on the Amazing Race. The show put them together on a reality blind date, but Jenny was pretty clear from the beginning that they were just friends. Still they did pretty well in the race finishing in 2nd place, but they are just friends after the show.

3. Historical Japanese man and Brazilian woman couple married around 1920 in Brazil. We saw this picture being misquoted many times on the internet and wanted to give the real story here.

AMBW12
A photo of a Japanese man marrying a Black Brazilian around 1920 in the northern part of the Brazilian state of Paraná. The photo is credited to the Museum of History of Japanese Immigration in Brazil and has been erroneously showing up on some websites as a picture of a Chinese man marrying a Black lady in Texas which is not the case. Outside of Japan, Brazil has a larger Japanese population than any other country including the US, and the Japanese have been immigrating to Brazil since the 1900s.

On Valentines day in 2010, he romantically proposed onstage during one of his live concerts to his 10+ year girlfriend, Annalisa Mungcal who is Filipino. Couple of problems with this though, first the 10+ year time frame overlaps with Brian’s marriage to his wife who he divorced in 2003, and Brian’s kids allegedly hate Annalisa for breaking up the marriage. Then after moving his new fiance and her two kids from another man into his house, unfortunately the wedding never happened.

In 1991, at the age of 69, Redd Foxx married Ka Ho Cho only 3 months before his unexpected death. After his divorce with his prior wife, Foxx’s lavish lifestyle and poor money management caught up with him and he filed for bankruptcy in 1983 with the IRS eventually seizing most all of his assets. Redd credits Kaho with being one of the few people that stuck with him through all of his financial difficulties and he expressed a tremendous love for Kaho during their brief marriage together.

Summary

We can not say thank you enough to all of our ABC viewers. We very much appreciate you spending time at the ABC websites.

Here are a couple of thoughts we have about 2016.

  • By the end of 2016, we are targeting to have at least 100,000 views per month and at least 10,000 regularly returning viewers. Stretch goals, but we think these goals are attainable. We would love to get to a point where we have to bring on an intern or two to help us manage all the growth!
  • We would also love to have more interaction with our viewers and between our viewers, however we also know we need to be smart about it. We have had several requests from guys to make a dating site, but at this time we do not believe we have enough Asian women who will participate to make a dating site work. Plus we have found 3 top Asian dating sites where Black men are regularly successful finding Asian women, and until we can do as well or better than these dating sites, we prefer to recommend these dating sites as opposed to creating our own dating site.
  • We are seeing an increasing trend of Asian women and Black women becoming regularly returning viewers at ABC websites. Today about 50% of our viewers reached are female, but only 35% of our regularly returning viewers are female. We are also seeing an increasing trend of Asian women reaching out to us to help them find Black men to date, as well as increasingly seeing Asian women join our top 3 recommended Asian dating sites and reporting good success finding great guys who are seriously ready for marriage. We are thinking through some ways that we may be able to help Asian women find great Black guys who are seriously ready for marriage. We encounter many top notch Black guys who are great husband material, so we think we may be able to help the increasing number of Asian women we are seeing who are looking to find great Black men to marry. For Black women seeking Asian men and Asian men seeking Black women, there are already many great AMBW resources aimed at bringing together AMBW couples that we simply can not compete with, so we would prefer to recommend these resources. Stay tuned for more info as we continue to see if there is a smart way for ABC to help Asian women interested in meeting quality Black men.
  • Along the lines of increasing interaction, we started ABC Forums in 2015, but the participation has been really slow there. Before the end of 2016, we will be working to see if we can find ways to have more regular daily interactions on the ABC Forums.
  • We are also working on some ways to increase our AMBW content on ABC. We are not looking to compete with the many great AMBW websites that already exist, but if we can bring a different view to some AMBW topics, we would love to do so.
  • Finally, we believe in sharing and collaborating, and we plan to continue both in 2016.

Thanks again to everyone for visiting ABC!! We wish all of our readers nothing but the best in 2016!
