“All states experienced an increase in the percentage of interracial and interethnic married-couple households from 2000 to 2012-2016.”

“The percentage of married-couple households that are interracial or interethnic grew across the United States from 7.4 to 10.2 percent from 2000 to 2012-2016.”

From interracial marriage reporting from the Census Bureau.

ETA an interesting note from a working paper about health status in interracial relationships. “Having a White partner is associated with higher self-rated health for Hispanic, Black, and Asian men and women, relative to having a partner of one’s own race/ethnicity. For White women, but not for White men, having a non-White partner is associated with worse self-rated health. ”

  1. As an only child, I can’t.

    On a tangent, I also can’t explain how America could return to an order where land owning Anglo sons of the Revolution are the only legitimate political class and why, if Homogeneity + Proximity = Peace, the Revolutionaries thought it would be a great idea to revolt against their kin with French and Spanish help.

    • And before that (many centuries before in fact) were the Anglo-Welsh wars.

      The whole idea of a group of people being unified solely on the basis of skin color and geographic proximity is a fallacy based on the relatively modern and uniquely dysfunctional system of race that was perfected right here in America.

      The fact that interracial marriage is steadily increasing shows how many people are blissfully ignorant of the coming race war.

      That’s a good one!
