Interracial dating support

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.American Indians have the highest interracial marriage rate among all single-race groups.Women are slightly more likely to “marry out” than men in this group: 61% of American Indian female newlyweds married outside their race, compared with 54% of American Indian male newlyweds.This next chart displays intermarriage rates across time for the America’s four major racial/ethnic groups for the same period.The most dramatic change over the last several decades is the number of Blacks intermarrying.This is because Whites make up the majority of married people – though their share is decreasing.White people made up 83% of the married population in 1980 and 65% in 2014, meaning that the nearly 5% increase in the intermarriage rates of Whites accounts for a little over 4% of the overall increase in intermarriages.

Yet the rates of intermarriage among different racial/ethnic groups show very different trends.In 1980, less than 4% of all married Black people under the age of 35 were not married to other black people. But Black people only made up between six to seven percent of the total under 35 married population during this period.So while this is a substantial increase, it accounts for less than 1% of the overall increase in interracial marriages.The were between Blacks and Whites, nearly twenty times higher than in 1950.And more than 15% were “intermarriages” – marriages between people who don’t identify as the same racial or ethnic group, up from 6.7% in 1980.
