    I mean...it's good...very, very good that we're moving further and further away from intolerance, ignorance, and hate. But I think the fact that we have to have articles talking about how far we've come kind of defeats the purpose of making the journey. Acknowledging it over all is fine, documenting it for history, whatever...but...Am I glad we're able to be more open and diverse and accepting? Hell yeah. But I look forward to a time when we don't have to parade around every single change in tolerance because it's just natural to be tolerant of no-harm-done type scenarios. I long for the day when as a society we don't have to parade around little accomplishments in achieving equality because we're already at 99%, you know?

    At one time I was against races mixing because it was hard on the kids but I think that era has past.

    Further, for the purposes of the material in the OP...."In this report, the terms “intermarriage” and “marrying out” refer to marriages between a Hispanic and a non-Hispanic (interethnic) or marriages between non-Hispanic spouses who come from the following different racial groups (interracial): white, black, Asian, American Indian, mixed race or some other race. “Intra-marriage” and “marrying in” refer to marriages between spouses of the same race or ethnicity...“White/Asian” indicates intermarried couples between whites and Asians. “White-Asian” means that the husband is white and the wife is Asian, in that order...The term “Asian” includes native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders. “American Indian” includes Alaska Natives. The terms “black” and “African American” are used interchangeably in this report. All references in this report to whites, blacks, and Asians refer to the non-Hispanic portions of those groups. Hispanics are of any race."

    Moreover, I am not going to entertain extraneous theories or arguments that can be good topic for new thread, especially when they either detract or simply do not address the OP in this thread.

    No argument that wiki is not the perfect source, but would you deny that as far as science is concerned (at this point in time), the origin of modern man is in fact Africa?

    Intermixing is the ultimate cure for racism.

    This may be off topic but I've noticed a shift in the media, magazines, and movies as well. I remember when I was little anytime you saw an add, models walking the runway, poster boards, and the like..... they were always caucasions... especially blondes. Now you walk into any grocery store/department store and you see an ad with a black woman who has kinky hair representing whatever the add is for, or you'll see a woman of mixed ethncity. It's nice to see all cultures represented. Commercials are also more ''ethnic''. In some ways the change is subliminal.

    Count me among them. 18 years and counting to my beautiful Latina wife.

    The problem is not who we're marrying, but actually staying married to them, and not procreating until we actually get married.

    So...any single white chicks out there?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.
