no more halfies = ugly america

a study out of ohio state basically says the number of interracial marriages is decreasing - mostly b/c new immigrants keep marrying eachother.

"The study suggests Hispanic and Asian immigrants are likely to marry among themselves. In addition, more native-born minorities are selecting marriage partners from the growing pool of immigrants.
"The result is that the number of native-born Hispanic men in intermarriages with whites declined by nearly 4 percentage points between 1990 and 2000 – from 35.3 percent to 31.9 percent. The number of native-born Asian American men in intermarriages declined from 50.2 to 45.8 percent."

so basically, the american born are opting to marry FOBs instead of whiteys. I wonder if the gender of immigrants makes a difference, like maybe more of the new immigrants are female. you know the saying that asian girls don't want to marry an asian guy (but end up anyway) and asian guys only want to marry asian girls? well yeah. welcome the FOBs.

i have no in-depth, insightful commentary on the hispanic side of things. since i'm not hispanic, i don't really get the same automatic legitimacy as i have when talking about asians and their fobbiness.
