And, most Americans say they approve of racial or ethnic intermarriage – not just in the abstract, but in their own families.More than six-in-ten say it would be fine with them if a family member told them they were going to marry someone from any of three major race/ethnic groups other than their own.The overall numbers mask significant gender gaps within some racial groups.Among blacks, men are much more likely than women to marry someone of a different race.Interracial marriages increased from 2% of married couples in 1970 to 7% in 2005 According to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data conducted in 2013, 12% of newlyweds married someone of a different race.(This share does not take into account the "interethnic" marriages between Hispanics and non-Hispanics).Interracial marriage is a form of marriage outside a specific social group (exogamy) involving spouses who belong to different socially-defined races or racialized ethnicities.In the past, it was outlawed in the United States of America and in South Africa as miscegenation.
Native Americans have the highest interracial marriage rate among all single-race groups.After the Emancipation Proclamation, many intermarriages in some states were not recorded and historically, Chinese American men married African American women in high proportions to their total marriage numbers due to few Chinese American women being in the United States.After the Emancipation Proclamation, many Chinese Americans immigrated to the Southern states, particularly Arkansas, to work on plantations.Many jurisdictions have had regulations banning or restricting not just interracial marriage but also interracial sexual relations, including Germany during the Nazi period, South Africa under apartheid, and many states in the United States prior to a 1967 Supreme Court decision.Interracial marriage in the United States has been fully legal in all U. states since the 1967 Supreme Court decision that deemed anti-miscegenation laws unconstitutional, with many states choosing to legalize interracial marriage at much earlier dates.
Women are slightly more likely to "marry out" than men in this group: 61% of Native American female newlyweds married outside their race, compared with 54% of Native American male newlyweds.
