Interracial relationships interracial dating
So if seeing a beautiful relationship can't change their minds, I can at least make a hate-filled racist's day a bit worse just by being with the person I love. Because nothing feels better than orgasming while thinking about all the progress we've made in civil rights in this country." God Bless America. Here's the proof: Olivia Pope and President Fitzgerald Grant, Olivia and Jake Ballard, Lila and Wes from , Cristina and Preston Burke, George O'Malley and Callie Torres, Jackson and April — that's without mentioning some more of the fleeting encounters that took place in the corridors, patient's rooms, and janitor's closets of Seattle's Grace Hospital — and now Annalise and Eve.There's nothing like strapping in for a night of Shondaland knowing your relationship is probably going to be reflected on the screen.Millennials are no exception to this trend: Large majorities of 18-to-29 year olds express support for interracial marriage within their families, and the level of acceptance in this generation is greater than in other generations.The Pew Research Center’s recent report on racial attitudes in the U.S., finds that an overwhelming majority of Millennials, regardless of race, say they would be fine with a family member’s marriage to someone of a different racial or ethnic group.Asked about particular groups to which they do not belong, Millennials are about equally accepting of marriage to someone in any of the groups tested: Roughly nine-in-ten say they would be fine with a family member’s marriage to an African American (88%), a Hispanic American (91%), an Asian American (93%) or a white American (92%).This high level of acceptance among Millennials holds true across ethnic and racial groups; there is no significant difference between white, black and Hispanic Millennials in the degree of acceptance of interracial marriage.Compared with older groups, particularly Americans ages 50 or older, Millennials are significantly more likely to be accepting of interracial marriage.
And among older generations, those who can count at least some members of other races as friends and those who live outside of the South are also more accepting of interracial marriage.
Over the last several decades, the American public has grown increasingly accepting of interracial dating and marriage.
This shift in opinion has been driven both by attitude change among individuals generally and by the fact that over the period, successive generations have reached adulthood with more racially liberal views than earlier generations.
While 85% of Millennials say they would be fine with a marriage to someone from any of the groups asked about, that number drops to about three-quarters (73%) among 30-to-49-year-olds, 55% among 50-to-64-year-olds, and just 38% of those ages 65 and older.
And unlike among Millennials, among those ages 50 and older there are substantial differences between blacks and whites in acceptance of interracial marriage, with older blacks considerably more accepting of interracial marriage than are whites of the same age.
