The percent of interracial marriages in the Chinese American community is on the decline, reports Next Shark.
Information from the 2012 census data finds that between 2008 -2010, mixed marriages in that community dropped by almost 10 percent.
An increase in Chinese immigration is partly the reason. Other factors may be cultural.
Tian Li, 32, of Chicago said she became dissatisfied with the White men she dated, some of whom she found to have an Asian fetish.
They didn’t understand me as a person,” she said.
Despite the decline, according to the Pew Research Center, Asian American women in 2013 far outpaced Asian American men in marrying outside their race, 37% – 16%.
