Among blacks, men are much more likely than women to marry someone of a different race.
Americans today also are less likely to oppose a close relative marrying someone of a different race or ethnicity.
Now, 10% say they would oppose such a marriage in their family, down from 31% in 2000.
Only 12% of black women married outside of their race.
Among all married people in 2015 (not just those who recently wed), 10% are now intermarried – 11 million in total.
Race has come to impact various aspects of our lives, whether we are aware of it or not, and one of the institutions that has been significantly affected by race is marriage.
