Interracial dating asian community
While Hispanics and Asians remained the most likely, as in previous decades, to marry someone of a different race, the biggest jump in share since 2008 occurred among blacks, who historically have been the most segregated.
States in the West where Asian and Hispanic immigrants are more numerous, including Hawaii, Nevada, New Mexico and California, were among the most likely to have couples who "marry out" - more than 1 in 5.
Mixed marriages involving blacks and whites also were considered least stable, followed by Hispanic-white couples.Other findings: -Broken down by gender, black men were more than twice as likely as black women to marry someone outside their race - 24 percent to 9 percent.The reverse held true for Asian men - 17 percent intermarried, compared to 36 percent among Asian women."Mixed-race children have blurred America's color line.They often interact with others on either side of the racial divide and frequently serve as brokers between friends and family members of different racial backgrounds," he said.Of the 275,500 new interracial marriages in 2010, 43 percent were white-Hispanic couples, 14.4 percent were white-Asian, 11.9 percent were white-black, and the remainder were other combinations.Still, the share of Asians who intermarried has actually declined recently - from 30.5 percent in 2008 to 27.7 percent in 2010.The West was followed by the South, Northeast and Midwest.By state, mostly white Vermont had the lowest rate of intermarriage, at 4 percent.A Pew Research Center study, released Thursday, details a diversifying America where interracial unions and the mixed-race children they produce are challenging typical notions of race."The rise in interracial marriage indicates that race relations have improved over the past quarter century," said Daniel Lichter, a sociology professor at Cornell University.
