Blacks do not oppose interracial marriage: In the current issue of "American Renaissance," Jared Taylor writes that a feeling against marriage with whites is common among blacks. What may be true of vocal black nationalists may not be true among Jamal-Six-Pack. According to the GSS, less than 10% of blacks have favored a law against interracial marriage over the past 20 years. Now, black folks may be focused on not giving Jim Crow Cracker what he wants, but if their feeling was strong against miscegenation, they would agree with him on this one.

By the way, white attitudes on this question went from 39% in favor in 1972 all the way down to 10% in 2002.

Intuitively it makes sense. I suspect that this is a black vs non-black thing (rather than just black vs white) because the child of a black with a non-black parent bears little resemblance to its white, east Asian or hispanic parent.

Disliking something and wanting it to be illegal are two different things. I suspect that if the question was "do you approve of interracial relationships?" then the results would have been different.

le biel: Yes, I imagine that, compared to the number of people wanting laws against interracial marriage, more people would disapprove of it morally. I don't know how different those numbers would be.

I bet black men are much more approving of interracial relationships than black women.

The high %female of US blacks tends to skew any survey of black attitudes towards what black women think

THE SIN OF INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE
"This world says that the cause of racial problems is segregation, when in fact the opposite is the case...The Supreme Court of the USA, without God's wisdom, but has human 'wisdom', wants to mix the races."
