Interracial marriages have increased steadily since then.
In 2013, a record-high 12% of newlyweds married someone of a different race, according to a Pew Research Center analysis of census data.
Nearly 300,000 white females answered the question and 46% of them said yes.
All of this seems to fly directly in the face of the author's implication that the low marriage rates among black women is due to black women not being willing to marry men of other ethnicities.
Or rather, they write them back far less often than they should.
