2019-12-03: We regret to inform users that the archiver stack FoolFuuka&Asagi on Rbt.asia, Desuarchive, Archived.moe, and others are suffering reduced accuracy and missing posts in scraping 4chan. New, efficient, and more accurate scrapers are in the progress of development, but needs assistance and testing from C# .NET and MySQL/Percona developers to be ready for use. On behalf of all archivers, unless FoolFuuka&Asagi is replaced, we will now be unable to scrape properly under the strain of deep software inefficiency and unsustainable costs (like fireden). More details here.
Donations to our site would help to ensure a normal lifecycle replacement of drives in our RAID.
Please refrain from spamming the ghostposting system or it may not be around for long.

I want to read it bros, but Jesus Christ (pbuh). Historically did Muslims honestly believe all of their violent imperialism was in response to aggression? The Romans did interlope in Arabia a fair bit, that is true. Everything else, just no. I'm gonna guess they dismiss it with "Humans are flawed, don't blame it on religion" while ignoring the state that was carved out from imperalized nations was the Caliphate - an Islamic, theocratic society.

History of Yellow Fever

No.7893323 View ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReport
My best guess is that the phenomena of Western men sexually fetishizing East Asian women has its origins in 18th century, a time when Europeans and Asians began to have greater contact with each other. I think our modern understanding of "Yellow Fever" really ramped up post-WWII with the Americans basically running a PR campaign to rehabilitate the image of Japan. Events like the Korean war and greater numbers of Asian immigrants to Europe and North America further contributed to improve Western men's perceptions of Asian women. In the 21st century, the commonness with which White men fetishize Asian women (Yellow Fever) or at the very least have a "preference for" Asian women is likely a way of lashing out against Western notions of feminism and greater female agency. Many of these men view the East and Eastern women as better potential wives than their White counterparts, citing the propensity of Asian women to be more traditional, family-orientated, and modest.

ITT: We post music that common people often listened to or created (preferably before the 20th century). I'll start.

And so God-Devil came to Earth, fixed your physics errors,
showed His Artifacts locations, activated Bluestones healing,
And left the Solar System on a Business Trip to 10^24 planets,
saying, "Sorry that you missed it. Better luck next time." G-D

Ten archaeologists and historians set out their views on a heated debate: should "Anglo-Saxon" be dropped as racist and divisive, or is it a historic term impossible to replace?

Have your say.
