    Asian American women may have an easier time being accepted into the mainstream [ ... "often times" ...] based upon a relationship that sees Asian American women as ultrafeminine and inferior to white heterosexual males.

In other words, the pairing of Asian American women and white men does not disrupt the normative heterosexual, white dominant, patriarchal hierachical order.
