A new study conducted by the Wall Street Journal has let on that interracial marriages are becoming extremely popular in the U.S.
Reports The Life Files:
About 15% of all new marriages in the U.S. in 2010 were between individuals of a different race or ethnicity, more than double the share in 1980, according to a report released Thursday by the Pew Research Center. Among those married in 2010, 9% of whites, 17% of blacks, 26% of Hispanics and 28% of Asians married outside their ethnic or racial group.
“Intermarriage in this country has evolved from being illegal to being a taboo to being merely unusual,” said Paul Taylor, the Pew official who edited “The Rise of Intermarriage” report. “With each passing year, it becomes less unusual,” he said.
Behavioral, attitudinal and demographic shifts, including immigration, have contributed to the intermarriage trend, which the report analyses based on historical data and Census Bureau figures from the annual American Community Survey between 2008 and 2010.
