Interracial dating statistics high school
Some smaller "rust belt" industrial cities seem to have a high rate of interracial coupling, based on 2010 census data.For example, in Sandusky, OH the share of residents who identify as BOTH white and black is 3.9% compared to a national average of 0.6%.I disagree with this, as you literally have small Interior Northeastern cities/towns where interracial couples are not uncommon.I can think of a few places off the top of my head in Upstate NY alone where it wouldn't be a surprise at all.This is from a sub-category of 'Two or More Races' on the Demographic Profile.Not sure exactly why this is the case, but perhaps there is a smaller economic gap between whites and blacks compared to much of the country.Getting back to the original question, I'm not sure there is much of an overall difference between the Midwest and Northeast so much as between different types of communities in each region. Much of Ohio and Michigan are rather similar to western parts of New York and Pennsylvania as well.
People tend to stay more within their own ethnic groups on the East Coast compared to the rest of the country, especially within the first and second generation immigrant communities (much more plentiful compared to the Midwest).
So, the types of spaces people may interact in likely play a part in this, especially if these spaces have been available for a long time.
Also, in many of these types of cities, the blackest section of town may be more integrated/mixed/whatever word you want to use, than people think. Also, a lot of smaller cities have 1 high school and in turn, the opportunity for interaction increases.
Moreover, by suggesting that too few black men are available to wed, news stories on black marriage have done little more than predict doom and gloom for African American women who hope to marry.
In reality, black marriage isn’t reserved for the likes of Barack and Michelle Obama.
