These people are commonly viewed as very attractive, as they gain the good physical features from both ethnicities.
They are known to have beautiful skin and hair.
Another word that is used to describe a person with this type of ancestry is “Afro-Asian”.
Origin of the term
The term is a portmanteau of Black and Asian. It was first described in the early 2000’s, the first definition shared in 2003.
Some suggest that the name should have been “afrasian”, but that Blasian is easier to say.
Spread of the term
As the world is becoming more and more globalized, this opens up the possibility of mixes in ethnicities that has not been very common before.
Blasian people – as they are viewed as very attractive – has increased in number as models, actors, adult entertainment stars and popular faces in media and online over the past decade.
Also the decrease in racism has contributed to the growth of mixed ethnicities.
Their physical features are especially popular in the US.
