You would argue here that this would be because there were more same race marriages than otherwise.

Let us compare the possible problems stemming from an interracial marriage as compared to a regular marriage.

The Differences In An Interracial Marriage

It is true that there would be differences in cultures, backgrounds, religions and even language sometimes. However, the same could be true with the same race marriage. Then there is the possibility of facing strong opposition from the families of those who choose to marry interracially. The same would be possible with regular marriages - this is highly accentuated when the societal strata or educational background differs. Lastly, the society in some
