I wonder how many people exclusively look for interracial relationships and exclude their own race and does that speak of genuineness or trend?

I exclusively look interracially, and exclude my own race. I don't tell others what to do, and I don't tolerate othes telling me what to do.

There will be an increase of interracial relationships no doubt.

However there will always be a certain number of people that would never be involved in an interracial relationship. Humans naturally want to be with those who look and act similarly to them.

There will always be a minority of Whites who will stick to their own kind and control the country's wealth.

On the other hand, most people look exclusively within their own race and don't appreciate other people telling them what to do either.

Interracial marriage rates are at an all-time high in the United States, with the percentage of couples exchanging vows across the color line more than doubling over the last 30 years.

But Asian-Americans are reversing that trend, increasingly choosing their soul mates from "among their own expanding community".

Asians are increasingly sticking with each other, according to that New York Times published article.

In places such as California or any region with a high Asian American population, they have always been more likely to stick to their own.

if someone is bi-racial, are they a different "race"?

Mostly no, Elvis Presley, Johnny Depp, the Jonus Brothers are part Native American, but they're Whites.

I am a 3rd generation Japanese American and I grew up in San Francisco and during the 60's and 70"s I dated mostly white girls, including one from Denmark and one from Ireland. Only one Japanese, one Chinese, one black and one Latina. I eventually married (36 yrs now) an American Indian.

Depends on the generation and the degree of assimilation. Those devoted to their heritage are less likely to marry out. And those like myself who keep some things from my Indian heritage but toss away the general matrix are more likely to leave the fold.
