"In 1920, marriages to whites comprised roughly 0.3% of black marriages.
By 2000, interracial marriages increased dramatically; 5.9% of married black men chose a white bride and 2.7% of black women chose a white husband." Interesting they don't mention the fact that American blacks and whites were legally forbidden to marry in most states until the 1967 Loving v. In describing the rise in interracial boinking, the researchers explain, "Mixed race births steadily increase over time, accounting for one in 200 births by the 1980s and one in 70 births in 2000." Cleary the authors didn't survey all biracial kids in the U. "Using data from the National Survey of Adolescent Health (Add Health), which surveys over 90,000 individuals who were in grades 7-12 in the 1994-95 school year, our empirical analysis of the plight of mixed race adolescents unearths a rich set of new facts." But, we're not talking about almost 100,000 children, are we?
"What's it like," he asks in his New York Times Freakonomics blog post, "to grow up with one parent who is black and another who is white? It's a rhetorical question Steve-O and his Ivy League buddies address in a paper titled, "The Plight of Mixed Race Adolescents." Read it here. Biracial kids are sexy, fashionable, mediocre students who grow up with absentee fathers and incomes similar to black kids.' Oh, and, did I mention they're really sexy?
Yet, in an article on racial conflict in a national magazine, could we go a little easier on the "beat people up" recommendation?
I realize this New York Magazine article is suggesting beating up only white people, not anybody who isn't supposed to get beaten up, so that's okay.
i think I crashed into a white girl in our school, she's totally gorgeous and sophisticated...
HOWEVER, I'm not really sure if a white girl would date an Asian guy like me.
