MULTIRACIAL FAMILY FINAL ESSAY2Multiracial Family Final Essay1.Explain How The Assimilation Of Immigrants And Interracial Marriage Relate ToOne Another In The Context Of The United States.IntroductionThe classical assimilation theory developed by expert sociologist’s views intermarriagebetween native and immigrant people as the assimilation litmus test. It blurs group boundaries byproducing and bringing up children of mixed backgrounds. This, in turn, dilutes the meaning andpurpose of ethnicity (Bohra-Mishra, 2015). The study closely investigates the determinantdifferences and the intermarriage likelihoods in the United State's new immigrants from LatinAmerican, European, and Asia continents. Thus, following the hypotheses collected using theclassical model of assimilation and carefully tested using the further study of immigrant’s showshow the immigrants' assimilation and interracial marriages relate to each other with a particularfocus on the United States. Marital Assimilation and Intermarriages among Asians, Europeans and Latin Americansin the United StatesThe marital assimilation rate is somewhat different when viewed from a U.S' white' ornative perspective. Here, the determinant of outcomes is relatively identical, and a majority ofimmigrant marriages to Native American citizens have increased the population of 'whites' in thecountry. It is also important to note that intermarriage has grown with the English language, andthe amount of time spent within the United States borders in keeping up with classicalassimilation theory.

This is shown through theLatin American, European, and Asian immigrants within the subject's residential state. Still, thereis evidence of segmented marital assimilation among the Latin American immigrants. Like thosefrom Europe and Asia, Latin Americans come from varying nations that substantially share acommon culture and language. If they decide not to marry a native, they are rarely forced to pairup with immigrants of different cultures and languages. Instead, they can choose someone of thesame cultural and linguistic affiliation. As a result, although European immigrants and Latin Americans prefer to marry withinthe limits of their clans, tribes, or local communities and show similar immigrant intermarriagerates, Latin Americas prefer to match those from the same region. At the same time, Europeansopt for those outside Europe. Hence, close to 74% of Latin Americans are all endogamouscompared to 58% of the European immigrants (Bohra-Mishra, 2015). Overall, the group which
