Research by Tucker and Mitchell-Kerman from 1990 has shown that Blacks intermarry far less than any other non-White group There is also a sharp gender imbalance to Black interracial marriages: In 2008, 22% of all black male newlyweds married interracially while only 9% of black female newlyweds married outside their race, making them one of the least likely of any race or gender to marry outside their race and the least likely to get married at all.From the mid 19th to 20th centuries, many black people and ethnic Mexicans intermarried with each other in the Lower Rio Grande Valley in South Texas (mostly in Cameron County and Hidalga County).

Anti-miscegenation laws in many states prohibited Chinese men from marrying white women.It became legal in the entire United States in 1967 when the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in the case Loving v.Virginia that race-based restrictions on marriages violated the Equal Protection Clause of the United States Constitution.Interracial marriages increased from 2% of married couples in 1970 to 7% in 2005 According to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data conducted in 2013, 12% of newlyweds married someone of a different race.(This share does not take into account the “interethnic” marriages between Hispanics and non-Hispanics).Interracial marriage is a form of marriage outside a specific social group (exogamy) involving spouses who belong to different socially-defined races or racialized ethnicities.
