This is a good story for the U.S.: Interracial marriages at an all-time high, study says – CNN.com. There’s lots of good material in there that’s well worth a read.
So while you still have the likes of people like Sen. Jake Knotts in South Carolina calling people racist names, that type of thinking and the fear it brings with it is dying out. Instead you have people loving people for who they are and people supporting that. And that is a smart thing indeed.
