April has been the start of news that I’ve been expecting for over a decade.
Indeed, teens seem rather blasé about the significance of interdating: Only about one-quarter (24 percent) of the teens surveyed by Gallup thought the United States would be better off if more people interdated, while 9 percent thought the country would be worse off.However, the largest share—67 percent—thought an increase in rates of interdating would make no social difference at all. Ludwig says such parental wariness is not unusual, given blacks' dimmer view of the state of U. "The experience of living as a black person and as a white person in this country is quite different, despite substantial progress since the 1960s." Ludwig and Yancey both agree that interdating is unlikely to increase significantly over the coming decade."It's not increasing as fast as some people might be thinking," says Yancey, who says that U. trends overall are trailing media depictions of the phenomenon.Among students who had dated interracially, at least 90 percent each of white, Hispanic, or Asian students said their parents acquiesced to their relationship.
But only 59 percent of black students who had interdated said their parents were comfortable with their dating. "People's view of how things are going in terms of race relations in this country is really distinctively colored by their race," he says.More than one-third (38 percent) of black students had dated a Hispanic, while 10 percent of black students had dated an Asian student.Teens surveyed also had an overwhelmingly positive view of interracial dating.What’s more, this data isn’t even that new…it was released two years ago, so I suspect these numbers are even higher. And when even more specific and current data is revealed by gender that black women intermarrying has gone up for nine percent to….??? He found that 35.7 percent of white Americans had interdated, along with 56.5 percent of African Americans, 55.4 percent of Hispanic Americans, and 57.1 percent of Asian Americans.
