Armed with a new Pew report (pdf) on interracial marriage, Oliver Wang takes aim at a stereotype:

[Asian-Americans] are the most likely to outmarry (30 percent of newlywed Asians are not married to Asians). ... 1 out 2 American-born Asian women outmarry, 2 out of 5 American-born Asian men do the same; that's not a huge difference and certainly showers cold water on the overheated idea that Asian women are "abandoning their people" in droves. Sex has little to do with it; generation is a far more powerful indicator.
