Buzzfeed has recently released the video above that sheds light on how interracial couples are viewed within society. Did you know that in 1980 only 3% of married couples were interracial? This has been steadily increasing and in 2010 it was reported that 1 out of 12 of all married couples in the United States are interracial.
There has been significant change since the “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner” era and interracial couples are become more widely embraced by the rest of the world and it’s about time! Watch as Rose and Len share their personal story about how they view their relationship, how others see it and what truly matters – love.
