The overall numbers mask significant gender gaps within some racial groups.
Among blacks, men are much more likely than women to marry someone of a different race.
Many black women would yell out, that’s because white women are easy!
We respectfully disagree, especially regarding Swedish white women in America; ask Tiger Woods about his ex-wife, Elin Nordegren.
Here’s what’s lost in all of this ill will, people – you have the right to date whomever you want.
It shouldn’t matter if bae is Smurfette, the She-Hulk or one of those giant blue women from Avatar – as long as that person treats you with respect, love and admiration, what else do you need?
Whoopi Goldberg has talked about interracial dating on "The View," saying you date whom you are around.
Only 12% of black women married outside of their race.
We all agree that when a black man finds a good American black woman there is nothing more beautiful, but look at the effort that it takes to find that one. Now, you take the same equation, flip it around and take 100 white women, the odds are that you will find 20 out of that 100.

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.
