A new Pew report shows that multi-racial and multi-ethnic babies have tripled in population since 1980. The research shows that one in seven infants in the U.S. have each parent from a different race in 2015.
The increase comes nearly a half-century after the landmark Supreme Court case Loving v. Virginia, which legalized interracial marriage in 1967.
This data correlates to the seven-percent rise in intermarriage among people of different races, also studied by Pew in 2015. The largest portion of multiracial babies are half Hispanic and half white weighing in at 42-percent.
