Hispanic men and white women on interracial dating
Unsurprisingly, Americans over the age 65 and residents of the South are least likely to support a racially-mixed family. They will just have to get over the fact that there are over 5 million interracially-married couples in the US, according to the latest census data. But which group, among all interracial marriages, are the most common? Take a look at the percentages behind America’s interracial combinations:points to “a steady flow of new Asian and Hispanic immigrants” in the West as the reason behind their high rates of interracial coupling.
A recent survey found that young Americans ages 18 to 29 have nearly universal acceptance of interracial dating and marriage within their own families.(August 2010) When Ann Dunham, a white woman, married a black African student, Barack Obama Sr., in 1961, marriage between white and black Americans was rare. In 2010, with Barack Obama Jr., in the White House, attitudes toward interracial dating and marriage are very different.Less than 3 percent of all marriages were interracial in 1960, and the public generally disapproved of such unions. Not surprisingly, this transformation is most evident among young people.Fully a quarter of black men who got married in 2013 married someone who was not black.Only 12% of black women married outside of their race.A recent study of profiles submitted to the online dating website showed, for example, that whites are more open to dating Hispanics and Asians than blacks are.
And younger clients are more willing to date outside their race than older clients. A recent report from the Pew Research Center found that one in seven new marriages in 2008 was either interracial or between a Hispanic and a non-Hispanic—unions encompassed by the term "intermarriages." This is double the percentage of intermarriages in 1980, but still relatively low.
Interracial relationships are much more of a norm today than they’ve ever been.
However, when it comes to cinema it still seems to be somewhat of a touchy subject.
However, since the 60s, there have been enough movies that explore the race card that we can mention. After a white guy finds out he can’t get into Harvard he decides to reapply as a black man.
And there are 10 in particular that I think are worth a watch. Sure enough, he gets in, falls in love with a black girl and has a funny relationship with his professor (no not funny in that way).
Older Americans are not as tolerant: About 55 percent of those ages 50 to 64 and just 38 percent of those 65 or older said they would not mind if a family member married someone of another race.
