One of every 10 straight married couples in the US is interracial

submit to reddit

The 2010 census noted the highest number of interracial marriages in America’s history, noting a huge 28 per cent jump over the past decade.

One out of every 10 married straight couples identified as different races, which shows an increase from 7 per cent in the 2000 census data.

Greater social acceptance of the unions and demographic shifts throughout the country are thought to be the two largest contributing factors to the increase.

The most common form of interracial couple was found to include one Hispanic person and the other identifying as non-Hispanic.

This finding represents a larger demographic trend, as Hispanics were one of the largest growing ethnic groups in the U.S. overall in the past decade, making it fitting that they also represented 45 per cent of the opposite-sex marriages in the country.

A couple with a multi-racial member was the second most common couple, followed by the pairing of one Asian person and a white partner, with couples featuring a black partner and a white partner coming in fourth.

The percentage of interracial couples increases dramatically when looking at unmarried couples.

Unmarried straight couples reported 18 per cent interracial, while the highest proportion belonged to same-sex unmarried partnerships which showed 21 per cent.

Regionally, the West of the country reported more interracial couples than any other area of the country.

That finding was largely due to the fact that the states with the highest interracial marriage statistics are those with large ‘native populations’.

Hawaii, with its significant number of Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander populations, was the highest-ranked state with 37 per cent of married couples identifying as interracial.

The next three- Alaska, New Mexico, and Oklahoma- all have varying ethnic groups.

Alaska Natives are classified as a different race, and the large Native American populations in Oklahoma and New Mexico contribute to the high interracial statistics in those states.

    Mulattos.The half white/black mulattos with the light pigmentation look so ugly!That is why I think that whites,especially white women should try to keep the white genes in the white family.Stay pure like pastor Thomas M.Robb suggests.White women that have black men’s mulatto babies should make sure that their black lover has plenty of money and a lucrative career so that when he deserts her and the mulatto children,she will be able to get child support from him.My opinion is that if a white women gets in a relationship with a black man,he should be financially fit and she should make him commit to marriage first and then
    have his mulatto children.There are to many black men that get their white women pregnant and split.That’s what many black men do to black women!White women,if you are reading this comment I hope that you follow this advice!Most black men that don’t have money and a lucrative career will do this to you!What’s the matter with a white man?Don’t you want to keep the white race pure?Don’t you like being a proud and pure white woman?If you are single,go find yourself a proud white storm front or NSM white single or KKK hulk and have his white children!

    Racists like Joe and Klansman up there are scared of this news and inevidable future that we’ll all end up mixing. Wether they like it or not, they kids will too have intercourse with balcks and asians maybe even arabs. Your grandkids will not look just like you, they will partly look like Chavez or Osama.
    I just looove pissing off the racist fcks.
