Interracial Marriage Continues Upward Trajectory

"Interracial Marriage Continues Upward Trajectory"

Via Paul Waldman, an interesting Pew Center report on trends in multi-racial marriage. They’re on the rise:

755-2

And unions between whites and Hispanics or Asians constitute the bulk:

755-3

As I’ve said before, I think the upshot of this is that the country will be “whiter” in 2050 than naive demographic projections suggest and that will largely be because a very substantial portion of the descendants of today’s Hispanics and Asians will be considered white.
