Gallup: Americans Now Support Interracial Dating

Editor and Publisher has a revealing story about the attitude of most Americans when it comes to interracial dating. I'm no expert on statistics, so I can't say whether this had flaws or what. But, its a big step forward and good news for our country.
In all, 69% of Hispanics say they have dated someone of a different racial or ethnic group, 52% of blacks say this and 45% of whites. There is some gender difference among blacks, with 64% of African-American men saying they have dated a non-black and 42% of black women saying this.

Among whites, 29% said they had dated a Hispanic, 24% an African-Amercian, and 18% an Asian.

The survey, part of Gallup's annual Minority Rights and Relations poll, was based on polling 2,264 adults.
