Korean parents against interracial dating
In 2013, a record-high 12% of newlyweds married someone of a different race, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data.
(This share does not take into account the “interethnic” marriages between Hispanics and non-Hispanics, which we covered in an earlier report on intermarriage.) Looking beyond newlyweds, 6.3% of all marriages were between spouses of different races in 2013, up from less than 1% in 1970.
In 2014, 37% of Americans said having more people of different races marrying each other was a good thing for society, up from 24% four years earlier.
Only 9% in 2014 said this trend was a bad thing for society, and 51% said it doesn’t make much difference.
The overall numbers mask significant gender gaps within some racial groups.
