ATTITUDES TOWARDS INTERRACIAL RELATIONSHIPS: Across Generations
Diandra TretiuMethodologyTraditionalsLeast Approving
All parents of same race
Families and Friends wouldnt approve eitherThey honor history and have a high belief in government, therefore sticking to the past beliefs of no interracial relationships. Baby BoomersAlmost Apathetic
Not approving either; yet
Individualistic culture, more so than Traditionals. They may not have been worried about other relationships since they were focused on pursuing their own personal gratification and thought of themselves as individuals rather than members of a community, as Traditionals didMany strongly disagreed that they felt uncomfortable or had negative thoughts about other races: Fought with other races during the Vietnam war
Gen-XSlightly more uncomfortable and having negative thoughts (may be because of more exposure/ higher integration: not increased prejudice)SLIGHTLY more likely than preceding generations to date interracially; still nowhere near MillennialsMillennialsRaised among integration
Interracial relationships apart of everyday life
Many friends in interracial relationships
Can see themselves marrying outside of their race; even if they dont think their families will approve (they dont care)
GraphsThis graph shows the interesting variance among the generations for feeling uncomfortable (1= strongly disagree, 4= disagree/neutral) around different races, which I previously analyzed and offered possible explanations for.
