National Study Shows Growing Acceptance of Biracial Marriages

On June 12, 1967, the U.S. Supreme Court ended a Virginia law that prevented whites from marrying outside their race.

Their decision, which also overturned similar bans in 15 other states, is responsible for many of the ugliest children in the world.

Here are the current statistics on biracial marriage in America:
(compiled from CNN.com article, Interracial Marriage, Acccptance Growing)

8.4% of all marriages are biracial (1 in 12)
(compared to 3.2% (1 in 33) in 1980)

15% of new marriages are biracial
(compared to  6.7% (1 in 15) in 1980)

How Many Marry Outside Their Race?

9% of Whites

17% of African Americans

26% of Hispanics

28% of Asians

Gender Patterns:

24% of African-American males marry outside their race
(compared to 9% of African-American females)

36% of Asian females marry outside their race
(compared to 17% of Asian males)

White males and females are both around 9%

Regional Patterns:

22% in the West

14% in the South

11% in the Midwest

States with Highest Levels:

42.4% in Hawaii

43% of Americans said they believe biracial marriages are change for the better within society
(10% said it was a change for the worse).

63% of all people said they would have no problem with a family member marrying someone outside their own race.

Stanford University sociologist Michael ROSENFELD (JEW) helped conduct the study and believes “we see a blurring of the old lines, and that has to be a good thing, because the lines were artificial in the first place.”

Artificial? Race is real, there’s nothing artificial about it. We’re not all the same, we’re different.

They want us to accept multiculturalism, “embrace diversity”, and gradually forget who we really are.
