    Yep. In spite of the claims of racial conflicts, it appears we actually like each other more than we did 30 years ago. Although, I don't believe this study looks at whether this feeling continues after marriage.

    I "almost" included in my post, that I hope the 50% ( or higher )divorce rate amonst whites and heterosexuals, does not hold true for interracial marriages, but that will remain to be seen.

    I like living with "hope." :)

    Another 50 to 75 years we are gonna be one big brown nation. Then people will find something else to hate on.

    Yet if everyone becomes the same shade of brown, what happens to the diversity that's supposedly "our greatest strength"?

    Each will want to 'explain what really happened' to the other spouse's family, so it will remain in the interests of a multi-racial nation.:lol:
