How Bad Is Racism in America? Marriage Stats Show Not Very

For the last 8 years, race issues and racism has been front and center on many issues within America.

While no society or any country will ever totally eradicate bigotry, is America really that racist?

Dr. Victor Davis Hanson produced some interesting data in his new piece on “The End of Identity Politics”.  In the article, he shows races (mostly minorities) are very comfortable marrying outside their own here is the U.S.

One, intermarriage and integration are still common. Overall, about 15 percent of all marriages each year are interracial, and the rates are highest for Asians and Latinos. Forty percent of Asian women marry men of another race—one quarter of African-American males do, as well—and over a quarter of all Latinos marry someone non-Latino.
