Inter race dating

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.

In 2013, a record-high 12% of newlyweds married someone of a different race, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data.

(This share does not take into account the “interethnic” marriages between Hispanics and non-Hispanics, which we covered in an earlier report on intermarriage.) Looking beyond newlyweds, 6.3% of all marriages were between spouses of different races in 2013, up from less than 1% in 1970.

At my mom’s house over the weekend, we had family around and I was talking about some of my friends- some of whom are bi-racial. I totally understand if the individual was meeting the family for the first time and didn’t know anyone, but if it’s someone who was familiar with everyone and got on well with us why it would be awkward?
