XKCD Marriage

Lots of interesting implications here, but they'll have to wait till later.

  1. Wow--was approval of interracial marriage only 4% in 1958? I had no idea. I looked it up at the Gallup site and it seems to be so. But it's just hard for me to get my head around this.

    I also learned from the Gallup report that "black-white marriages . . . still represent less than 1% of all married couples." This sounded low to me, but then I thought about it: if 13% of Americans are black, and 7% of blacks marry white people, then this comes to 1% of all married couples. 7% is low, but it's not as low as 1%.
