S Census Bureau released a report that studied the history of marriage in the United States.
They discovered some startling statistics when calculating marriage by race.
The study comes as the new movie “Loving” is set to debut in theaters in November.
The film chronicles the story of Virginia couple Mildred and Richard Loving, whose illegal mixed-race marriage led to the landmark decision by the U. Supreme Court in 1967 to legalize interracial marriages nationwide.
Acceptance was high overall for both sets of relationships, but for those who disapproved, “the less accepting you are of interracial relationships, the more disgusted you are by them,” Skinner said.
In the second study, 19 participants had their brain activity monitored by electroencephalogram (EEG).
After viewing the available data, we can see that although fewer black women are “now married”, more black women than Black men have been married at least once.
This is because a higher percentage of Black women are divorced and widowed than men.
Also in 2014 just under half or 48% of black women had never been married which is up from 44% in 2008 and 42.7% in 2005.
This does not prove causation however it shows that they are related due to the assumption that men in prison are less likely to marry.
Most people in the United States say they accept interracial relationships, but a new study of brain activity shows some hidden bias.
