While past research on Asians in interracial dating has found that Asians are more likely to engage in interracial relationships with White individuals, there is little information known regarding specific Asian ethnicities. More so, there is even less information regarding Hmong in interracial dating. To better understand Hmong in interracial dating, this study examined Hmong adults’ openness to interracial dating and whether race preference exists. Participants were asked to complete a survey pertaining to their attitudes toward interracial dating with specific racial groups as well as level of acculturation. Results revealed Hmong adults are open to interracial dating across all four racial groups. However, Hmong adults’ perception of their parents’ attitudes differs. Limitations and future research along with implications are discussed.
