Racial dating statistics liquidating credit cards
While racial discrimination is still evident, the boundaries separating the major ethnic and racial groups have become more porous.A recent survey found that young Americans ages 18 to 29 have nearly universal acceptance of interracial dating and marriage within their own families.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.Most people appear willing to date outside their race, but they still state preferences.Twenty percent of Asian men married a non-Asian in 2008, compared with 40 percent of Asian women.Likewise, black women are much less likely to intermarry than black men.
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.And, as sociologist Dan Lichter points out, the biggest increase appears to be within minority groups. Interestingly, although younger people were more accepting of intermarriage, the Pew report found little difference in actual intermarriage rates by age—newlyweds age 50 or older were about as likely to marry out as younger newlyweds.Only 11 percent of 2008 intermarriages were between black and white Americans, reflecting the persistent cultural resistance against relationships between these races. Most Asian guys (speaking of East Asians, I am guessing. Black women tend to be not only fatter on average, but also more muscular.It is a bit different if the guy is Indian or if he is Chinese and if he is Indian but looks more Middle Eastern (like many in Punjab do) or Indian and looks more South Indian (shorter/darker). Regardless of what we want the world to be, in almost every society lighter skin is valued for women as a sign of femininity and social class.
About 44 percent of the population under age 18 in 2009 was Hispanic, black, Asian, or another non-white group, compared with about 35 percent of the total U. The Pew survey reported that one-third of respondents said they had a family member married to someone of another race or ethnic group.
