    Interracial Couples Who Make the Most Money
    By CATHERINE RAMPELL

    Dollars to doughnuts.
    The share of American newlyweds in interracial couples has more than doubled in the last 30 years, to 15 percent in 2010 from 6.7 percent in 1980.

    That’s according to a new Pew Research Center report, which also looked at how interracial couples compare to same-race couples when it comes to income. On its face, it looks as if couples who married out of their own race are socioeconomically similar to those who married in: in 2008-10, the median combined annual earnings of interracial newlyweds was $56,711, compared with $55,000 for same-race newlyweds.

    The numbers vary tremendously, though, depending on the combination of races involved. Here is a list of newlyweds from 2008-2010, sorted by different racial combinations of husbands and wives:

    New marriages with an Asian-American groom and a white bride earned the most money, with the median such couple bringing in $71,800 between the two of them. Note, though, that such pairings represent less than 1 percent of all newly married spouses of any racial combination, so the sample size is small.

    The converse of that group — new spouses in which the husband is white and the wife is Asian-American — earn almost as much, with a combined median income of $70,952. They are followed by newlyweds who are both Asian, who typically earn $62,000 in total.

    So basically, what these numbers are reflecting is that Asians earn more money, period, which is generally true across the population of Asian-Americans and has been the case for a while.

    At the bottom of the income list is new marriages in which both spouses are Hispanic. Given the share of Hispanics who are recent immigrants from poor countries, this is probably not surprising.

    Even the oppressed gay people, who are often rejected by the larger culture, can't escape the obessession with race and etnicity, so they can possibly find happiness. At any rate, I don't know about this "study's" research methodology but there are some holes in these findings. I personally know 2 interracial couples who earn over$250,000.00, and their ethnic pairing is not even included here although their ethnic groups are included. That's fascinating. The first two questions you should ask before believing any so-called research findings: who is doing it, why are they doing it (purpose).This is intellectually fascinating though that such a study like this would be conducted at all. I may have missed it, but I assume this study was conducted in America? Fascinating.

    So in order for me to maximize my future household income, I'd have to go look for a white partner?

    Oh! Time to go open another Asian dating thread!

    I saw another chart thing that showed that people from Brazil and Mexico scored lowest on science and math tests out of a whole bunch of different countries.

    I always knew Latinos were stupid.

    Lol. Oh no, I want to talk with you, honestly. No hostility, just curiousity. At first I was just fascinated with the study, but now I'm interested in learning some more about you. I'm just a very curious kind of person. I like to investigate new phenomena I'm not familiar with, that's all. You are a curious human to me. Thank you for posting this study, I have some friends I want to share it with who might be interested in it, I think. Please, tell me more about yourself. I'm interested.
