Here’s an interesting piece of data: According to Pew, American newlywed couples composed of a white person and an Asian person, on average, have the highest annual incomes— more than all-white couples, all-Asian couples, white-black couples, or any other kind of mixed-race couple you can come up with.
Frank are you paying attention?
Did they try to input a control for gender of the asian person and white person?
I wonder if there is anything there…
I suspect that this phenomenon is at least partly because a lot of white-asian couples meet in medical school, business school, law school…
Folks that don’t attend higher education are less likely to spend time socializing with people outside of their own community.
I bet this has to do with the education. Mixed couples most likely meet in college, grad school, or a professional environment which requires college or graduate school degrees. So it would make sense for the Asian person who marries a non-Asian person to be already part of the higher educated subset.
Pretty soon they are gonna have to openly discriminate against asians in American Universities. With a few billion asians all set on going to study in the US it’s inevitable.
I can’t wait to tell my grandkids about how when I was a young man, being white and protestant meant that you were privledged and had power.
“Really Grandpa? You mean Asians didn’t always run the world?”
