I'm referring to those Asians who are now integrated into society, speak only Spanish (or mostly Spanish) and are culturally Hispanic, yet distinguished more by physical appearance. I know a lot of them are mestizos/mixed too. Peru has a surprisingly large Chinese population, and smaller populations exist in say Cuba and other countries. How are they viewed by other Hispanics? Are there similar stereotypes to Asian Americans or not at all? It seems most of them, or a lot, tend to marry out of the community as well.

Shouldn't this be in the Americas forum for the Hispanic viewpoint? (if Hispanic is meant to refer to mainly New World Spanish-speakers besides Spain?)

I know in Brazil, the model minority label is also applied to Asians. Brazilians in Sao Paulo for example notice the universities in their city have an overrepresentation of Asians compared to their percentage of the city's overall population.

Asians are well thought of and treated well in Latin America. I know several Chinese Latinos and they seem to integrate really well into Latin American socities. I have met several Chinese Latinos here in Canada. I went to school with some of them and also several Chinese kids whos families had moved here from the Caribbean.

There is a good number of Koreans through out Latin America. Koreans are also very well thought of but they also have a bit of a bad reputation in some places because lot of them own factories and are notorious for paying and treating their workers like crap.
