On 5/31/10 A study from the Pew Research Center revealed that intermarriage among Asian, black, Hispanic and white people account for a record 1 in 6 new marriages in the United States.
A new study shows that more and more black men are marrying women of other races. In fact, more than 1 in 5 black men who wed (22 percent) married a non-black woman in 2008. This compares with about 9 percent of black women, and represents a significant increase for black men — from 15.7 percent in 2000 and 7.9 percent in 1980.
Sociologists said the rate of black men marrying women of other races further reduces the already-shrunken pool of potential partners for black women seeking a black husband.
