The opinions of Baby Boomers (those born between 19) became more accepting of black-white dating in the early 1990s and have steadily become more so; in recent years, Boomers have become almost as accepting of interracial dating as Gen Xers.
The oldest generation currently being tracked, the “Silent” generation (those born between 19), has steadily become more racially liberal over time, though they remain significantly less likely to approve of interracial dating than are those in younger generations (68% in 2009).
The Pew Research Center’s recent report on racial attitudes in the U.
S., finds that an overwhelming majority of Millennials, regardless of race, say they would be fine with a family member’s marriage to someone of a different racial or ethnic group.
This shift in opinion has been driven both by attitude change among individuals generally and by the fact that over the period, successive generations have reached adulthood with more racially liberal views than earlier generations.
Millennials are no exception to this trend: Large majorities of 18-to-29 year olds express support for interracial marriage within their families, and the level of acceptance in this generation is greater than in other generations.
"So Harry, we were thinking that you should get back together with Taylor Swift again. Harry stands up and unexpectedly punched the head of management in the face. "This looks really good Maura." She looks at you saying "I could imagine you saying that with your figure and all." she says mumbling.
Taylor's publicist says it would get you guys to another level." You look down with tears in your eyes. I mean, she's probably just with you for your money.
"I'll get it Lou." "Okay babe," he says food in his mouth. These surveys have found Millennials very accepting of interracial dating since the opinions of this generation first were tracked in 2003 (in 2003, 92% of Millennials agreed that it was all right for blacks and whites to date).When the first Generation Xers began to be tracked in the late 1980s, about two-thirds of this generation (those born between 19) agreed that it was “all right for blacks and whites to date each other.” By the time all members of that generation had reached age 18, fully 85% agreed with the statement — about the same proportion as does so today (86%).This was a suggestion from @elleofhearts Harry: You and Harry were in a conference with management about your relationship. So back off and do your fucking jobs right." You trail behind a angry Harry. "Mhm, you too." She says passing right by your hand and setting the table. You two have been dating for two years and still going strong. You look back at Niall and he rubs your back while you two sit down.
