Three Things Asian Americans Owe to the Civil Rights Movement

Three Things Asian Americans Owe to the Civil Rights Movement | Legislation and the Heroes Who Propelled New Laws Forward | Scoop.it

Here are three among many debts Asian Americans owe to the Civil Rights Movement:

 

Ending bans on interracial marriage: 36% of Asian women and 28% of Asians overall entered into interracial marriages in the U.S. in 2010, making us the most likely to marry outside our race among all groups in that year. These marriages might never have been possible if not for the Civil Rights Movement. Specifically, Loving v. Virginia, a case brought in 1967 by a white man and a black woman, ended the ban on all interracial marriages in the U.S. The Lovings were supported in their case by many civil rights groups, including the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund and the Japanese American Citizens League.

U.S. immigration histories of the majority of Asian Americans begin after the The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965
