This is part of a Pew Research Center series of reports exploring the behaviors, values and opinions of the teens and twenty-somethings that make up the Millennial Generation. Over the last several decades, the American public has grown increasingly accepting of interracial dating and marriage.
This shift in opinion has been driven both by attitude change among individuals generally and by the fact that over the period, successive generations have reached adulthood with more racially liberal views than earlier generations. Millennials are no exception to this trend: Large majorities of to year olds express support for interracial marriage within their families, and the level of acceptance in this generation is greater than in other generations. This high level of acceptance among Millennials holds true across ethnic and racial groups; there is no ificant difference between white, black and Hispanic Millennials in the degree of acceptance of interracial marriage.
Compared with older groups, particularly Americans ages 50 or older, Millennials are ificantly more likely to be accepting of interracial marriage. And unlike among Millennials, among those ages 50 and older there are substantial differences between blacks and whites in acceptance of interracial marriage, with older blacks considerably more accepting of interracial marriage than are whites of the same age.
The gap between Millennials and other age groups is evident for all of the individual groups asked about, though the size of the gap does vary as Americans ages 50 to 64 and 65 and older are less likely to accept marriages to members of some groups in particular, African Americans than others in particular, white Americans.
Other demographic characteristics also are correlated with attitudes towards interracial marriage. Both overall and within each generation, acceptance of interracial marriage is positively associated with being female and with higher levels of education.
And among older generations, those who can count at least some members of other races as friends and those who live outside of the South are also more accepting of interracial marriage. The opinions of Baby Boomers those born between and became more accepting of black-white dating in the early s and have steadily become more so; in recent years, Boomers have become almost as accepting of interracial dating as Gen Xers.
There is little difference on this question between Millennials and Americans ages 30 to But Americans ages 50 and older are considerably less likely to have cross-racial friendships, and this difference is largely the result of fewer older whites having black friends. There are no statistically ificant differences between older and younger blacks in reports of cross-racial friendships.
