The author offers insights about interracial dating. One problem facing a person that comes from a multiracial background is shunning people of other race. In the U.S., the number of interracial couples is estimated at 1.6 million. For instance, golfer Tiger Woods came from a family of interracial relationship since his father is African American while his mother is Asian. One change in the Census is having the opportunity to select race categories that apply.
