    The following article shows the decline in interracial/cross-cultural marriage for Asians and Latinos/Hispanics in the U.S. from 1990 to 2000. However, it shows the statistics for interracial/cross-cultural marriage for all the major ethnic groups in America. It empirically shows stats for foreign-born and native-born Americans in how they marry across race/culture.

    One thing I found interesting to note is that Diasporic Africans in America marry outside their race/culture a little over 1 out of 10 people or about 11%. That is no where close to Asians who likewise marry at about 54%, and Latinos/Hispanics (if you want to consider them a race, which they are not) at about 31%. The only homogenous group that marries less outside of their own people in proportion to their population are Whites at about 5%.

    Do you think the notion that "all the good African men are with White or non-African women" is simply blown out of proportion?

    I dont look at it that way.

    It seems the NATION is helping IMMIGRANTS form those SEGREGATED CLUSTERS found throughtout the NATION.

    Once they TAKE ROOT interracial marriage will DROP and become PORPORTIONAL to WHITE-BLACK UNIONS.

    That's how GREATER SOCIETY THINKS.

    DOnt feel sorry for INTERRACIAL PEOPLE.

    BLAME the NATION, not BLACK PEOPLE.

    Please.

    So,

    Oh well.

    YES. It is a MYTH grown greatly out of proportion.

    I've always thought that this interracial marriage bit was blown out of proportion for those of us normal people. Among black celebrities, I still suspect that it is higher. We do tend to hear more about it because of them. But when I travel through the malls and the airports I work in and travel through, as well as other public places, I don't see the justification for all of the hoopla. Another myth that needs to be exposed is the one about the ratio of black women to men. According to the United Nations population data, the numbers of men and women are just about even among all races and nations.
