This is just nothing more than hidden discrimination and racism. The children themselves are fully aware of how wrong this is but they won't challenge their parents out of respect. How can you respect this? Do the East Asians(Chinese, Japanese, Koreans) not know how bad it feels when some westerner rejects them due to their own heritage? There are a number of Asian instructors here in their 30's and 40's at my college and won't give a westerner any consideration but have waited over fifteen years or even longer for their race-specific man to come rescue them. Why? It just infuriates me. I get more than enough dating bigotry from American women as it is. I don't get it.

I used to not like Chinese girls but after going to China for a summer I have completely turned around my opinion of them. Now I almost want nothing else other than a Chinese girl or an Asian girl. A lot of it is because when I went to China I realized that my parents and family passed down to me a long and rich heritage that I know only a little since I was raised in America. I don't want to further walk away from my roots. If I bond with an American woman or a non-Chinese they will have no knowledge of the world my family and I came from. I am proud of being Chinese and I don't want to lose that heritage. I still like girls from every nation. Pretty girls are everywhere. But now I suddenly feel like our relationship would be hindered if they aren't familiar with the vast world my family came from. This is just kind of a personal revelation.
My suspicion is that a lot of East Asians, especially Chinese ( the one I know best anyway ), have deep pride for their culture and will feel like it is thrown away if they marry outside their culture. Only Chinese sick with the same thing all the time and want something exotic will think differently.
That isn't to say that other nations are inferior. I think girls everywhere are great, it's just more about keeping the heritage I think. But statistically speaking there will be a lot of people who will want something outside of their group. I'm thinking most cultures will have a balance of this kind of behavior for a long time because most cultures I think will want their people to propagate it still.1
