    From your link:
    Had the race question remained the same as in 1990, some of these interracial marriages in 2000 would not have been so classified. This type of marriage accounted for almost half of the increase in interracial marriages between 1990 and 2000. In 2008, roughly the same number of interracial marriages, about 700,000, were between single- and multiple-race non-Hispanics. They represent a somewhat smaller share (15%) of the 4.6 million interracial marriages in 2008.

    We now know that a good portion of the increase is due not to tolerance, but to how the data was collected. This undermines the impact friends and children of interracial couples could have made.

    The study was referring to how society in general regarded interracial marriage over the coarse of time. "Unusual" is not an insult, as even my left-handedness is "unusual", even "abnormal". Even if "unusual" were some kind of insult, just because society views your relationship a certain way does not mean your relationship actually is that way. Society can be wrong. At the point where the study used the term "unusual", it was demonstrating how society was gradually accepting interracial marriage more and more as time passed.

    Not that I really care to debate somebody in Spain, where they treat Arabs and blacks like ****, about racism but the article is incomplete. This isn't his granddaughter. It's his goddaughter's daughter. Making her... an unrelated child.

    Scott Henson victim of 'babysitting while white' after being stopped by police with black granddaughter | Mail Online

    Scott Henson is a self-described Texas redneck, white and middle-aged. His granddaughter Ty -- the five-year-old daughter of his goddaughter -- is black and Mr Henson often finds himself babysitting her.

    White grandfather stopped and cuffed for walking home with his black granddaughter* - NY Daily News

    A white grandfather says he wound up in cuffs after being accosted by police, all for walking home with his black granddaughter.

    Scott Henson, a former journalist who now researches for and blogs about the criminal justice system, wrote about the experience on his popular blog, "Grits for Breakfast."

    Henson, who describes himself as "an almost stereotypical looking white Texas redneck," said he was walking home from a roller skating rink with his 5-year-old granddaughter Ty, who is African-American, on Friday night.

    ...

    On the blog, Henson explains the relationship. Ty's mother is his goddaughter, and Henson and his wife often find themselves "tasked with unplanned impromptu babysitting duties, like hundreds of other parents and grandparents around Austin."
    Sure, the police overreacted but this isn't exactly a common situation. A white guy walking around with a dark child will draw suspicion in a country where nearly 0.1% ( seems like a small number but that's 260,000 kids) of the population is abducted every single year. Now when you factor in that 4/5 kidnappings are made by strangers, it's not hard to imagine somebody of any skin color would freak out at a situation where a man who one can correctly guess is not related to this child and looks like a stranger is walking around with her. It wouldn't have made a difference if the kid or adult was white or black. It's an easy mistake to make that doesn't necessarily make one racist. However don't let facts, logic and actually living in the US stop your anti-American bull**** rant.

    More interracial marriages doesn't mean we have a less racist country.

    It means we're a country of people who enjoy more variety in who we ****.

    Which, arguably, is racist in and of itself.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    HAHAH are you serious? Treat Arabs and blacks like ****..in Spain, compared to the US where Arabs were rounded up after 9/11, where Arabs are being held without trail or charge for almost a decade, where people who "look like Arabs" have been beaten and murdered (they were in fact not Arabs)... the list goes on.

    "Arabs" and blacks are treated just as everyone else in Spain if they are here legally.

    So, police receive a kidnapping call that a white man was holding a young black girl, and they acted on it. And you have an issue with this?

    The "police were mean" stuff is unsubstantiated, and I smell a guy looking for a lawsuit.

    Yes, I suppose a liberal would see it that way. What in the hell are you talking about? I understand trumped-up racism is good business for you guys and all, but c'mon, woud you read what you wrote again?
