Moral argument against interracial dating

There are currently 1.6 million interracial marriages in the United States, and that figure is continuing to grow (Duru, 2012). Census Reports, interracial marriages have more than tripled between 1980 and today.In many ways, today’s debate about same-sex marriage resembles earlier debates about interracial marriage.
