Did you look at the link from Pew research?

But no one was talking about bias toward interracial couples.

I hadn't but I just did. I am surprised, especially with Utah.

The only people I know who say this kind of stuff are racists.

Growing up in my generation, people made friends with all kinds of different backgrounds, given the neighborhoods were integrated and not artificially segregated. Asian, black, white, there was never any preference or prejudice to "be with their own". (Whatever that means) People make friends based on proximity. There are consequences of segregation that persist in the United States, due to attitudes such as yours.

How segregated are housing patterns? There is no agreement on the best measure of housing segregation, but study after study shows that American communities are not highly integrated.
By in large, people want to live with people like themselves.
One large-scale study carried out by the State University of New York at Albany used a “segregation index,” which runs from zero to 100. Zero would mean completely random housing patterns, or complete integration, while 100 would be complete separation. Any number over 60 is considered “highly segregated.”
According to this analysis of 2000 census data, the national segregation index dropped during the 1990s from 69.4 to 65.1. However, the segregation index for children rose from 65.5 to 68.3.


From:
"Affective bias against interracial couples",, Caitlin M Hudac PhD, Allison L. Skinner, Ph.D. University of Georgia, 2017/1/31, Journal: Journal of Experimental Social Psychology, Volume: 68, Pages 68-77
"Although today most Americans (87 per cent.) will respond they accept interracial marriage when polled, the reality is people are being socially pressured to go against what they really feel.
Revulsion at the very sight of racial mixing exists on a subconscious, instinctual level.
When it comes to sensitive matters like race, gender, sexual orientation, self-reporting normally yields false results because people are either unaware of their biases or they just lie about how they truly feel.
The brain waves of predominately white sample of college students was measured while they viewed 100 images of black-white interracial couples and an equal number of same-race couples (black and white).
Overall, participants showed a heightened level of activation in the insula when looking at interracial couples relative to looking at same-race couples.
Although the insula is not exclusively linked to disgust, taken with the results of our first study these findings suggest that people do tend to be more likely to experiece disgust when viewing interracial couples."

Do you know very many census demographers or dating site data analysts or real estate data analysts?

Huntington Beach Mayor Pro Tem Tito Ortiz strolled into a Huntington Beach burger shack, steps from the sand on Pacific Coast Highway, as he did every Sunday.

But this time, the employee behind the counter at TK Burger told the recently elected mayor pro tem he wouldn’t be served unless he put on a mask.

Angered by the snub, Ortiz pulled out his phone and started recording.

“So they won’t let me order unless I have a mask to come in,” the mixed martial arts fighter-turned-politician said in January from outside the eatery, a fixture in the community since 1995. “First time all year that I’ve actually been forced to wear a mask, but I’m not wearing a mask. TK Burger you lose my business. You lose H.B.’s business.”

At one point, 4/5 members of my immediate family, including myself, were in interracial marriages (three of which were with actual immigrants). All of us being from Southern California meant that it wasn't at all a thought for us because we were from an area that was very highly integrated. I've lived in other states where there aren't nearly as many interracial couples, but no one seemed to care that we were. Those who feel that most people only want to "stick with their kind" honestly are not anywhere near the majority. The numbers of such relationships are lower in other places simply because most places have a much different make up race wise.
