MULTIRACIAL FAMILY FINAL ESSAY 2 Multiracial Family Final Essay 1. Explain How The Assimilation Of Immigrants And Interracial Marriage Relate To One Another In The Context Of The United States . Introduction The classical assimilation theory developed by expert sociologist’s views intermarriage between native and immigrant people as the assimilation litmus test. It blurs group boundaries by producing and bringing up children of mixed backgrounds. This, in turn, dilutes the meaning and purpose of ethnicity (Bohra-Mishra, 2015). The study closely investigates the determinant differences and the intermarriage likelihoods in the United State's new immigrants from Latin American, European, and Asia continents. Thus, following the hypotheses collected using the classical model of assimilation and carefully tested using the further study of immigrant’s shows how the immigrants' assimilation and interracial marriages relate to each other with a particular focus on the United States.

Still, there is evidence of segmented marital assimilation among the Latin American immigrants. Like those from Europe and Asia, Latin Americans come from varying nations that substantially share a common culture and language. If they decide not to marry a native, they are rarely forced to pair up with immigrants of different cultures and languages. Instead, they can choose someone of the same cultural and linguistic affiliation. As a result, although European immigrants and Latin Americans prefer to marry within the limits of their clans, tribes, or local communities and show similar immigrant intermarriage rates, Latin Americas prefer to match those from the same region. At the same time, Europeans opt for those outside Europe. Hence, close to 74% of Latin Americans are all endogamous compared to 58% of the European immigrants (Bohra-Mishra, 2015).
