Example of a literature review on interracial dating
(I don’t think I know any of those couples, but hey, they’re probably out there.) I wanted race to be present in Rose and Caleb’s relationship—to be the catalyst for and the subject of some complicated, sometimes uncomfortable conversations between them.I wanted their racial identities to be what they are for most of us: pieces of who they are that do indeed affect their experiences of the world.But the furious reaction to a story that Newsweek published this week about the popular dating show “The Bachelorette” has certainly proved otherwise.In a short piece filed Tuesday, Newsweek staff reporter Janice Williams used the start of the ABC program’s 13th season to remark on how the long-running show’s casting of a black woman in the title role was a milestone for African-American women.That Rose and Caleb are a mixed-race couple isn’t an accident.

Citing data from a 2015 study by the Pew Research Center, Williams noted that black women are significantly less likely to marry a person of another race than are black men.
