American Indians have the highest interracial marriage rate among all single-race groups.
Women are slightly more likely to “marry out” than men in this group: 61% of American Indian female newlyweds married outside their race, compared with 54% of American Indian male newlyweds.
Fully a quarter of black men who got married in 2013 married someone who was not black.
Only 12% of black women married outside of their race.
In fact, much of the evidence seemingly in support of race-status exchange theory may actually result from miss-specified statistical models (Rosenfeld 2005). I guess white women and black men are "special" awww bless their hearts.
Just as researchers’ assumption that women trade beauty for men’s socioeconomic status may have led to erroneous findings that seemed to support the “trophy wife” stereotype (Mc Clintock 2014), researchers’ tendency to problematize interracial relationships may have generated a misleading focus on race-status exchange. "Measurement of Personal-Group Relations." Sociometry 10(4):306-311. Sorry i hate to break it but it IS dating/marrying down for a ww to persue a IR relationship (and especially with a blk dude) always will be by most in the white community.
Our previous surveys have documented growing acceptance among the public.Do interracial couples really believe that the white partner married “down” in racial status? Are minority women trading beauty and sexual access for white men’s race and income? Where subconsciously for a black man to have a white woman created the illusion or delusion he's just as good as a white man. "A Critique of Exchange Theory in Mate Selection." The American Journal of Sociology 110(5):1284-1325. There is a misguided belief that if the white Christian male becomes exstinct that endless joy and non-stop sexual orgies will occur.For Asians, the gender pattern goes in the opposite direction: Asian women are much more likely than Asian men to marry someone of a different race.Among newlyweds in 2013, 37% of Asian women married someone who was not Asian, while 16% of Asian men married outside of their race.
