Although the anti-miscegenation laws have been revoked, the social stigma related to Black interracial marriages still exists in today's society although to a much lesser degree.
Research by Tucker and Mitchell-Kerman from 1990 has shown that Blacks intermarry far less than any other non-White group There is also a sharp gender imbalance to Black interracial marriages: In 2008, 22% of all black male newlyweds married interracially while only 9% of black female newlyweds married outside their race, making them one of the least likely of any race or gender to marry outside their race and the least likely to get married at all.
Interracial marriage is a form of exogamy that involves a marriage between spouses who belong to different socially-defined races or racialized ethnicities.
In the past, it was outlawed in the United States of America and in South Africa.
Interracial marriage in the United States has been fully legal in all U. states since the 1967 Supreme Court decision that deemed anti-miscegenation laws unconstitutional, with many states choosing to legalize interracial marriage at much earlier dates.
Anti-miscegenation laws have played a large role in defining racial identity and enforcing the racial hierarchy.
The United States has many ethnic and racial groups, and interracial marriage is fairly common among most of them.
