Research on interracial dating
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.
Though this rate of growth is not as high as that of the Black population, it is a larger component of the general rise in intermarriage.
They were married in “Whiteness.” Although the couple initially pled guilty, they later decided to dispute the law, and took their fight all the way to the Supreme Court.
In 1967, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously on the side of the couple.
Thus, White people were roughly six times more likely than random to marry another White person.
By 2014, however, Whites were only four times more likely than random to marry another White person.
