Some racial groups are more likely to intermarry than others.Of the 3.6 million adults who got married in 2013, 58% of American Indians, 28% of Asians, 19% of blacks and 7% of whites have a spouse whose race was different from their own.
The overall numbers mask significant gender gaps within some racial groups.
Among blacks, men are much more likely than women to marry someone of a different race.
However, media images and the lack of interracial socializing have led to a situation where the distinct minority of white men can say that they truly know a Black woman.
Even fewer can say with conviction that they trust a Black woman in either a business or personal relationship.

Multiracial Americans numbered 9.0 million in 2010, or 2.9% of the total population, but 5.6% of the population under age 18.
