NOTE: At some point, before bed, I read through 50+ news sources and share my findings here. If you like it, share it. If you don’t, share it. Follow my blog now to support my work or to find new reasons to complain about it. My opinions are my own. All tips are welcome.
So, I read this article today from Washington Examiner that had my mind racing a bit. Its entitled, “Black people agree: Race relations ‘worse’ under Biden.” It was a short article and I quote most of it.
Under President Joe Biden’s administration, race relations have “gotten worse,” and more black people believe so than not.
According to the latest Rasmussen Reports survey, this one on the George Floyd murder trial of a white Minneapolis police officer, 40% of likely voters said race relations have deteriorated under Biden. About 3% of respondents said they see no change, and 22% said they are better.
What is remarkable is that even more black people, 41%, believe race relations have worsened, a sharp break from the liberals and Democrats who don’t see much change since former President Donald Trump left office.
Biden has a black and Asian vice president, and he has a more diverse staff and Cabinet than Trump, but it apparently hasn’t influenced how the public views the issue. The media have also hyped his black voter support in the 2020 election, though it also saw Trump winning more than expected.
“During the presidential campaign, Joe Biden supported the protests, promising action on ‘systemic racism,’ but most voters don’t think the country’s racial problems have improved,” the poll said. “Only 22% say race relations in America have gotten better since Biden was elected president. Forty percent (40%) say race relations have gotten worse since the election, while 34% say race relations are about the same.”
When I read that I wondered how race relations are measured in our country. Typically, there is a survey or poll of some kind, followed by opinion. It occurred to me that if someone really wanted to know the state of race relations in the USA, three data points would be undeniable: the rate of interracial marriages, interracial families and the rate of interracial adoption. What better measures could there be of total acceptance than that? I think it would be hard to find a more convincing argument. Here are some stats that I found.
- Nearly four-in-ten adults (39%) say the growing number of people marrying someone of a different race is good for society, up from 24% in 2010.
- A 2018 Statista survey examined the representation of interracial couples in popular American TV shows. 43% of female participants stated that these TV shows need more interracial couples, and in total, 39% of respondents claimed these relationships should be more frequent on TV.
- Biracial couples are increasingly the norm in advertising and there are no efforts to cancel the trend.
And to quote The Guardian…
It’s been half a century since the US supreme court decriminalized interracial marriage. Since then, the share of interracial and interethnic marriages in America has increased fivefold, from 3% of all weddings in 1967 to 17% in 2015.
STATS ON INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE
- Nearly three-in-ten Asian newlyweds (29%) were married to someone of a different race or ethnicity in 2015, as were 27% of Hispanic newlyweds.
- Although Asian and Hispanic newlyweds are most likely to be intermarried, overall increases in intermarriage have been driven in part by rising intermarriage rates among black and white newlyweds. The most dramatic increase has occurred among black newlyweds, whose intermarriage rate more than tripled from 5% in 1980 to 18% in 2015. Among whites, the rate rose from 4% in 1980 to 11% in 2015.
- In 2015, 24% of recently married black men were intermarried, compared with 12% of newly married black women.
STATS ON INTERRACIAL FAMILIES
- One-in-seven U.S. infants (14%) are multiracial or multiethnic. This share is nearly triple the share (5%) in 1980.
STATS ON INTERRACIAL ADOPTION
- The percentage of international adoptions that are interracial: 84%.
- 1 out of every 5 adoptions in the United States that is privately initiated and funded will be an interracial adoption.
- Among all non-Caucasian children who are adopted, 73% of them are adopted into Caucasian families.
AND JUST IN CASE YOU WERE WONDERING…
- Studies show that interracial / transracial adoptions can provide a stable home for children in need, with more than 75% of transracially adopted children adjusting well to their new homes.
- A 1995 study determined that interracial adoption had no negative impact on a child when it comes to “adjustment, self-esteem, academic achievement, peer relationships, parental and adult relationships.”
So, my question is this…
If there is a large (and growing) percentage of interracial marriages, interracial families, interracial adoptions and social acceptance of interracial couples, where is all of this alleged racism coming from? Could it be a by-product of the cultural marxism taught by critical race theory in our public schools? Could it be a false narrative projected upon the citizenry by the mainstream media for the purposes of profit? Could it also be part of a plan to distract and divide the country as our enemies slowly take control? Call me crazy but yes, I think so.
