Fellow City-Data.com forummers, which nations across the globe have a large amount of miscegenation (race mixing) or increasing number of interracial couplings? Please provide facts and statistics if you have them.

By the way, this thread is not intended to cause any strife or aggitation, so please keep comments friendly and mature. Thanks.

Most likely in the USA, most notibly in the Southwest and the Northeast. I can't speak for other countries, but I'm sure its high there.

If we're talking about miscegenation through the years I would say countries like Brazil (a majority of people there are mulattos) or Mexico (majority of mestizos) would be hard to beat in that respect. I don't know how frequent marriages between pure-laine whites and pure-laine blacks or natives are these days though.

I eat my words - a quick google search reveals whites are actually the majority group in Brazil, although blacks and mulattos (they're lumped together in the census) are expected to surpass them in the next census.

South Africa? This occurs among the whites and blacks or with the other races?

Keep in mind, caucasion is seen as a large group. In the U.S. hispanics are often considered white.

That's cuz "Hispanic" isn't really a race...it's a vague term that covers a wide range of people with various ethnic backgrounds, cultures, and skin colors. The only tie seems to be that they speak Spanish or some of their ancestors spoke Spanish or they were rules by Spaniards at one time.
I suppose I fall under that term, but I really dislike it and don't use it.

But yeah, I bet many people in various Latin American countries who might be called "Hispanic" are a mix of white (from various European countries), the indigenous people, and/or black people (from slaves brought over). Mexicans seem pretty solidly mixed also.

Mainly among blacks and whites, but also with Indians (from India) and even a small percentage of Chinese.

I didn't think blacks and whites were getting along in that part of the world.
