Recently, a study that revealed whites are the least among all races inhabiting the US to race mix has been heralded as great news and a sign of a relatively healthy outlook towards race among US whites. However, such an impression could not be farther from the truth.
Let’s take a look at the numbers posted in the study (https://archive.is/BNEZB).
11% of white couples are interracial
18% of black couples are interracial
27% of Hispanic couples are interracial
29% of Asian couples are interracial
Not let’s add some context (https://archive.is/IU0aa).
63.7% of those inhabiting America are white
12.2% of those inhabiting America are black
16.3% of those inhabiting America are Hispanic
4.7% of those inhabiting America are Asian
Finally, let’s compare the miscegenation percentages among the races to the population percentages of other races. In other words, let’s look at how much every race mixes relative to how many of other races there are.
The way I opted to compare the various races was by taking the race mixing percentage, multiplying it by the percentage of the population that race makes up, and dividing that product by the percentage other races make up. The lower the number, the less race mixing occurs among that race relative to the percentage. My results are as follows:
White Miscegenation Index: .193 (11*.637/36.3)
Black Miscegenation Index: .0250 (18*.122/87.8)
Hispanic Miscegenation Index: .0526 (27*.163/83.7)
Asian Miscegenation Index: .0143 (29*.047/95.3)
In short, when you factor in how many whites there are in America and how few of each minority, you should quickly realize whites are mixing far more than they should. Hispanics come closest to whites in their Miscegenation Index, though theirs is less than 1/3rd of the white one. It is also very likely that the race most of the others are mixing with is the white one. Oh, and never forget that Dicky Spencer dismissed miscegenation among whites as a non-issue.
