Abstract

Assimilation theorists have actually very long seen inter-group partnerships that are romantic indicators of racial equality. These unions remain relatively infrequent although the past half-century has witnessed the erosion of anti-miscegenation laws and subsequent increases in the frequency of interracial marriages. Minimal intermarriage rates could be partially explained because of the casual sanctions leveled at young romances that are interracial. This research tests whether adolescents who interracially date have reached greater risks of peer difficulties than intra-racially dating youth. Outcomes show a relationship that is positive adolescent interracial dating and peer trouble in school. As hypothesized from ethnographic research and theories of inter-group relations, outcomes claim that interracial romances activate peer sanctions and that these responses are strongest whenever romances include black colored pupils.
