A recent study by the Pew Research center shows that interracial marriages are on the rise in the US. According to the study, currently 1 in 7 marriages is interracial, with 9% of whites, 16% of blacks, 26% of Hispanics and 31% of Asians marrying interracially. I think is says something sad about the majority that whites are the smallest group in the mix, however, there is slight hope because while rates among Asians and Hispanics have stayed about the same since 1980, rates of interracial marriage for whites have doubled, and for blacks have tripled.
What did you find interesting about this study? Did anything surprise you?
