Defining Mixed


These groups are all mixed in their heritage.


  1. Hispanic people are mixed by definition. Hispanic is not a race and Latin American countries have not had anti-miscegenation laws like the U.S. Most Latinos are part Amerindian mixed with some part(s) Spanish / Portuguese / Black. 
  2. Black people have been mixed with others since the founding of the U.S., sometimes by choice and sometimes by force (enslavement rape). 
  3. Asian people have been mixing with others since anti-miscegenation laws have been abolished in the U.S.  
  4. Other people includes Native American (1%) and Mixed people. 
  5. White people are often mixed with ‘5 shades of White’, or they are White Latino, or they are  ‘One drop of color / ‘passing as White’, aka 1/16th of color. White is not counted as White when mixed with people of color, which accounts for the decline in White numbers over time. The other reason the numbers for White drop is because Europeans no longer immigrate to the U.S. at any where near the same rate of other groups. European countries tend to provide good health care coverage and tend to have lower gun violence. For example, in the U.K. the routine patrol officers do not carry guns.

The Numbers

Intermarriage among people of different races is increasingly common. In 1980, just 7% of all marriages in the U.S. were between spouses of a different race or ethnicity.  In 2010, that share has doubled to 15% of all new marriages in the U.S. Hispanics (26%) and Asians (28%) were most likely to “marry out,” compared with 9% of whites and 17% of blacks. - Pew Research

 

Marrying Out


If two people of mixed heritage marry, does Pew Research count that as an intermarriage?

This shows that our country is allowing more ethnicity and race to enter the country. We our having changes in our population as well as having ethnic groups grow. Having ethnic groups can allow America to continue to grow and become developing country. ~JConner

Roman M's curator insight, April 20, 2015 12:12 PM

This article shows the changing and which majority races are increasing and decreasing. Whites are the largest race in America right now and Hispanic should be increasing on a huge scale. Whites are decreasing comparatively to Hispanics. Asians and Blacks are also increasing slowly. We might see very soon that whites are not the majority race in America.
