Welcome to the fourth quarterly update of the top Asian and Black couple websites for 2016 third quarter – see all of the previous Asian and Black website rankings here. In the third quarter of 2016, we saw the growth in number of Asian and Black couple websites moderating a bit following the high growth from prior quarters – see the ABC full list of Asian and Black couple related websites here. In this set of rankings, we have one new #1 website in the online groups category with the #1 website in the other 5 categories keeping their #1 rankings.

As a reminder, for ranking purposes, we sort Asian and Black couple websites into 6 categories:

  • Online Groups
  • Meet Up Groups
  • YouTube Channels
  • Instagram Sites
  • Facebook Pages
  • Blogs

In order to be eligible for these rankings, the website has to be either primarily or partially devoted to Asian and Black couples or relationships – either BMAW or AMBW. The website can discuss other topics such as lifestyle, fashion, general race relations, etc., but there needs to be a part of the site that focuses on Asian and Black relationships. Similar to last quarter, in this quarter’s rankings in the website category, we are also including websites which focus on the Black experience in Asian countries or the Asian experience in African countries. These websites are a great resource for many Black and Asian couples and naturally cover Black and Asian relationships as well.

As always, we exclude any websites or groups that have a heavy sex related theme, and we also exclude websites which have not had meaningful activity in the last 12 months, even if they used to be really popular before the most recent 12 months. Websites come and go all the time. Obviously, if we missed any websites that you believe belong in these rankings, please bring them to our attention for review.

In the rankings below, websites that primarily focus on AMBW couples will be shown in this green color. Websites that focus on BMAW couples or general Blasian couple topics will be shown in the standard black color. However keep in mind that AMBW oriented websites will occasionally cover BMAW topics and likewise, many BMAW oriented websites will occasionally cover AMBW topics. Also for the quarterly update, websites moving up or down in the rankings are noted and websites that stayed the same in the ranking are not noted. Now let’s get to the rankings!

10. Asian Man and Black Woman, The Evolution’s of Euphoria Group 2 (down 1 spot)
895 members,   Lead Admin: Hadivyah Burgess El
https://www.facebook.com/groups/evolutionofeuphoria2/

The Facebook group, Black and Asian Couples, added nearly 2,000 members since last quarter to cross the 10,000 member mark and take over the top spot in the Asian and Black Couples Online Group category. This is one of our favorite online groups and we really appreciate the drama free and respectful conversations that the admins promote in this group. Indeed we know of other larger BMAW online groups, (mainly Filipino and Black), but because they either focus on or freely allow sexual conversations and photos, we do not include them on this list. Some of the groups even say they will not allow sexual content in their posting rules, but then they refuse to remove sexual topics or pictures – to each their own, but we try to only promote groups that are mature and respectful here. Speaking of which, the FB group, Filipino Women Black American Men joins the list at the #8 spot and while many of their members post selfies to meet members of the opposite sex, they appear to largely stay away from the all the crazy sexual conversations and we hope they can maintain that focus. AMBW groups continue to occupy 5 of the top 10 spots.

In the YouTube category, there was no change in the top 10 channels, but several channels added impressive incremental views since last quarter. LaVigne Life, who finally announced their marriage, added about 6 million views. Lily Petals World, the #2 channel, added almost 3 million views, and MazeLee, the #3 channel added about 3.5 million views. Being a top YouTuber is much harder than it looks and attracting viewership at the rate of over 1 million views per month is no small feat.

Lovely Mimi, Vietnamese, continues to dominate the Instagam category crossing the 1 million followers mark for the first time – a huge accomplishment. Mimi lately has been capitalizing on her television and publicity appearances. We have said for some time that Mimi has all the makings of a star comedienne or actress, so it will be great to see what kind of projects she may land. We also welcome blasianquest, a really fun AMBW couple to the top 10 list in the #6 spot. Also for the second quarter in a row, we saw the number of Asian and Black couple Instagram accounts decline again with 14 channels either going private or shutting down. We only include publicly available Instagram accounts in our ranking.

10. BlackTokyo (new to list)
Average Global Ranking: 3,201,000
http://www.blacktokyo.com/

With over 1 billion websites globally right now, any global ranking less than 10 million is actually pretty good, and a global ranking in the top 1 million sites is really excellent. Many of the websites that cover Asian and Black relationships in one way or another also cover the Black experience in Asia, or the Asian experience in Africa, so in this category we expanded our website coverage to include websites that cover the Black experience in Asia or the Asian experience in Africa, as well as websites that more strictly cover Asian and Black couple relationships.

Jennifer Gabriel continues to produce the #1 Asian and Black relationship blog right now called Western Girl Eastern Boy (WGEB) and it’s ranked in the top 330,000 websites globally which is superb. WGEB has shifted their focus somewhat to the Black experience in Korea which is also very helpful for Asian and Black couples. Dom & Hyo maintains the #2 spot also ranking essentially right at the top 1 million sites worldwide mark.  Two of the ABC websites (yours truly) moved up in the last quarter, with the main ABC spot moving up to #3 and the ABC Tumblr spot moving up to the #5 spot – we continue to appreciate everyone’s support. We are also pleased to add some great websites to the top 10 listing. At #8, the nicely done BlackwomenAsianmen Tumblr site clocks in with some great photos of BMAW couples, and at #10, we welcome BlackTokyo, the longstanding (since 1999) website focused on the Black experience in Japan.

Summary

Kudos to all of the websites on all of the rankings above. If you know of any websites that should be on these lists, please drop us a line so we can update the listings over time. Educating the world about Asian and Black couples and creating safe spaces for Blasian couples to have intelligent and meaningful dialogue is a labor of love for many. However this collective work is making a difference, and helping to eliminate old and tired stereotypes for both Asians and Blacks. We continue to hear more and more positive reviews of Asian and Black couples from people of all races which is very encouraging.

Best wishes to everyone!
