They play with other kids at school all the same, you see them in the housing estate plaza playing together... they were born and raised here so they're more or less perfectly integrated. The adults seem to treat them the same, too, with maybe a bit higher-than-average fawning over how beautiful they are from the female teachers and aunties.
Good to know. I know there was a half Chinese-half African American girl who went on a singing talent show and some people (a minority though) were racist towards her. She was just Chinese like anyone else, but happened to have an African American father. I bet she'd stand out a lot more than a half white-half Chinese kid.

China does not allow dual citizenship. So which citizenship the Russian spouses and children will choose, Chinese or Russian?
And will they settle in China or Russia after marriage?

It should be noted the percentage of mixed-race population in Mainland China is much much lower than others like Japan, S Korea, Taiwan, HK, Macau, Phillippines, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand...

No suprise given the large population of China, and most Chinese in China don't have a foreign friend or fluently speak a foreign language.

Well China is a huge country and most foreigners only go to the big cities. There are a lot of people who haven't even SEE a white person before.

Russia and China border each other. They have an entire province of half russian/half chinese farmers. It's those people you see in National Geographic that look Chinese, but have blue eyes. Been like that for quite awhile.

They better hope Russian Neo Nazis or Skinheads don't catch them.

Well most of the skinheads are in European Russia, and many of these couples live in China anyway.

In Vladivostok, where I lived, many east Asian people were living there. It was a rarity to see Chinese/Russian couples, though I do know of a few Japanese/Russian and Korean/Russian couples; still, relative to how many Asians were living there, this was rather rare.
I asked my Russian friends and acquaintances how they would feel if their daughter married a Chinese man, and the vast majority made a terrible face and replied "foo" (which is like "yuck", in Russian). However, there seemed to be different views on marrying Japanese or Korean men. In the Russian Far East, many locals have traveled to Sufenhei or other backwater Chinese towns on holiday, and they weren't impressed with the Chinese people who were trying to make money off of them. Also, many of the Chinese who were in Vladivostok were essentially migrant workers. The combination of these two realities is probably one reason why many Russians there weren't excited at the prospect of their daughters marrying Chinese men.

Yeah no doubt it's a minority thing. And obvious Japanese/Korean men have a lot more prestige because of wealth and pop culture. I think China and Chinese people just get bad press anywhere in Asia. Even many 'overseas Chinese' look down on them...

Why should they not be on the rise, and how could they not be? Is it worthy of an explanatory thread that in America, black/white marriages are on the rise? More and more people in the world are A) transitioning to new homelands, and B) urbanizing into places with a more mixed population base, and C) in most countries, becoming more tolerant of outsiders, and D) shedding societal anti-miscegenation dogma.
