Though admittedly, it would be fair to say that a huge disproportionate amount of Asians live in California.
I understand what you're saying. Believe me I do. Texas perhaps probably passed the one million mark already if the growth has continued with Asians. But still. Nearly FIVE million Asians live in California. It is going to take decades for any state to catch California in this category.

Proportional wise, the share of Asian Americans living in California compared to the rest of the nation has literally went from 80% 30 years ago to 33% now. Migration patterns can change things pretty quickly.

I agree the law of big numbers at work, hard to move a huge difference like that quickly. Only way it happens in a matter of a couple of decades is if california loses population of asians to Texas, which is happening to a degree I suspect.

I agree wholeheartedly. However, California did gain 1 million Asians between 2000-2010, but I suspect that's all international, off the plane, type Asians. I think Texas will be a much larger draw for Asians pretty soon, and using the laws of exponents, it could overtake CA soon.
