Interracial marriage is on the rise, according to a new report from the Pew Research Center.The report, which came out Thursday, indicates that there has been a major jump in interracial marriage rates from 1980 — the first year from which rich Census data on interracial marriage are publicly available — when just 3 percent of married couples were mixed-race (the last U.S. anti-miscegenation laws were lifted in 1967). In 2010, 1 in 12 married couples in the U.S. were interracial couples, reports the Pew Center.
Today it seems to be of greater acceptance as with celebrity power couples Kanye West and Kim Kardashian or Ice-T and Coco. “The Swirl” takes a comedic look at this serious topic by digging into the cultural shift in attitudes around interracial relationships.
The film unearths the real-life conversations folks are having in the shadows on the subject that have finally been brought to light in this enlightening and entertaining documentary. Speaking to men and women on both sides of the debate, the feature length documentary delivers honest and hilarious dialogue on interracial dating by comedians such as Esther Ku, Rodney Perry, and Reggie Jackson. The film dares viewers to take a hard look at their own perceptions. Through in-depth interviews, expert commentary, comedic conjecture and surprising statistical data, the film covers everything from self-hate and racism to the concept of love being colorblind.”
