Keith Preston stated that minorities have a less liberal attitude toward interracial marriage than whites in a response to one of my posts. That reminded me of a commenter at GNXP making a similar claim with regard to black women. I’m finally moving away from LAW2 and PARTNERS as variables, so here’s what RACMAR indicates in the GSS:
FAVOR LAW AGAINST RACIAL INTERMARRIAGE – 125a. Do you think there should be laws against marriages between (Negroes/Blacks/African-Americans) and whites? 0 NAP 1 YES 2 NO 8 DK 9 NA
I ran with with RACE as the independent variable and SEX as a control. The rank-ordering is the same in all cases, with whites more in favor of such a law than blacks and “other” in between. In keeping with results from studies on internet dating, females of all races are less friendly toward race-mixing in this area. I’ll give all the tables but I only feel like displaying the graph with the result both both genders together.
