Are you surprised that in the most racially diverse country in the world, a whopping 98% of marriages are still between 2 people of the same race.
only 2% of american identified themselves as multiracial drop from previous years
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interracial_marriage

most of those mixed people must have moved to their other half's countries, mostly asian....ex half white/chinese person move to china, half white/korean move to korea something like that.


during our US citizenship inauguration ceremony speech, the host told us all, explicitly that he wants to see the USA as a bowl of salad, not a fruit punch, meaning, people to stick with their own n not mixing up

This proves the U.S is more of a salad bowl rather than a melting pot.

A salad bowl is more diverse than a melting pot. Hint: Race-mixing destroys the unique qualities of each race.

A melting pot is actually quite homogeneous when you think about it.

Race mixing is something you can't control. Why do you even bother?

I think bowl of salad is like multiple vegetables/fruits in one bowl, it stay in its original shape/form, this term best to describe multicultural or multiethnic society

while melting pot is like you put all vegetables and fruits into a blender and then blend it, later it form new shape and color but as one, you don't know their origin anymore since it blended

Imagine it as a glass of milk and put a pinch of coffee in it at first it will be marble like but in the long run it will be uniform in color which is Mocha.

I think by default most minorities want to preserve aspects of their culture and ethnicty. I think its fair to say most fear assimilation from the dominant culture. So naturally many minorities (especially the older generation) discourage thier children from interracial (plus theres inner cultural societal pressures as well).
In the end people are going to have relationships with whomever they like regardless.

I think the dyanamics would be different if people of other races werent minorities in a vastly caucasion society.

well this is certainly a fascinating piece of statistic

Okay... but how many of those mixed race people choose to identify as "biracial" or "multiracial"? I know plenty of whites, blacks, and Hispanics who are heavily mixed, but choose to label themselves by those labels only. In fact, I'd say most minorities are eventually assimilated into one of the above three, or a combination of each. Think of Hawaii... where someone who is Japanese/Hawaiian/Filipino/Irish is not uncommon. Naturally, they'll identify with whichever they grew up around or have most biological influence from.

The majority of people are mutts to certain degree, its only when it involves white, black or Asian background when others get excited over interracial relationships.

The aticle says 2% of people are mixed, but around 14% of marriages in the US are interracial.
