I thought I responded to this. It’s not just about numbers, there’s always something else going on in the cultural melting pot. The point of looking at statistical inferences dispassionately is to cast some doubt on easy explanations that fit a preferred narrative.

I suspect your impressions about Asian women are less about internalized racism than the fact that men of other races and ethnicities find them attractive, culturally and physically, and make those preferences known. But that’s just an educated guess from empirical comparisons. South Asians do intermarry quite often, but their immigrant culture is still somewhat against that. It usually breaks down after the 2nd generation of Americans. The only group I know that has persistently resisted that is the Jewish diaspora.

For minority groups NOT to intermarry really goes against the grain of cultural adaptation and evolution, but I would never attribute Asian-Americans marrying Asian-Americans as a signal of racism.
