Most said they did indeed find more tolerance today among family, friends and strangers. marriages in 2010 were between spouses of a different race or ethnicity. Rosenfeld, an associate professor of sociology at Stanford University, says the findings aren't surprising and reflect the continuation of a trend seen over the past few decades. We overlook the very obvious judgments that are passed on to us by people of all races. By the way, HE grew up here, as the second black family here, I did not.

But many also shared stories of stares and glares in public, disowning by family members and discrimination by businesses. But first, a little background: The Pew report found that marriage between races and ethnic groups has reached an all-time high in the U. Couples of different race or ethnicity made up a record 8.4 percent of all married couples in 2010, up from 3.2 percent in 1980. The report also said nearly two-thirds of Americans say it “would be fine” if a member of their own family were to marry someone outside their own racial or ethnic group. “Racial intermarriage was very effectively suppressed in American society in the past, and so there’s still a lot of room to go up,” Rosenfeld said. If you love someone don’t care what other people think. One very obvious example of our daily lives for us and our four now-grown children is this: I use and carry my husband’s debit/credit card with me, because I do majority of the shopping.

But Rosenfeld also notes that race is still the biggest “barrier in the marriage market” in the U. today – that is, people are much more likely to marry outside their religion or social class, for example, than they are to marry outside their race.“You’re still several hundred times more likely to be married to a black person if you’re black,” he noted. Mind you, HIS name is the only one on the card and account.

In fact, the Pew report noted, interracial marriage in the U. wasn’t fully legal in all states until a 1967 Supreme Court ruling that deemed anti-miscegenation laws unconstitutional. Before her dad died he told me that he could not have had a better son-in-law. When I use as a credit card, I never ever get carded, even though my name is quite obviously NOT David.

Here are some of your Facebook stories, some of which have been edited for length, clarity and style. Now, if he goes to use his own card at the same exact stores, they card him every single time! So sad to me, but so true and relevant on what we go through over stereotypes ... Still a ways to go I am white and Mexican though you cannot see the Mexican in me. We live in the Tampa-area suburbs not far from the biggest stupid Confederate flag in America.

As far as problems, it has been mostly old people of both sides that you see looks from.

Some young black guys once in Ybor City asked my wife what she was doing with me. And we were at Busch Gardens once when there were two losers drinking in the parking lot with mud and Confederate flags all over their truck who said ‘gross’ as we walked by.

When I asked what they said they started on some racial slurs.
