This study investigated differences in ethnocultural empathy with 153 Asian, Latino, and White American participants. Findings showed Latinos were significantly higher in ethnocultural empathy compared to White Americans and that individuals with a higher ethnic identity were significantly higher in ethnocultural empathy compared to those with a lower ethnic identity.
