Sometimes it only loves black women: their chocolate skin, their hair, how “sassy” they are…” It’s time to pick out some Saturdays to introduce him to all the classics he’s missed like “Harlem Nights” and “Friday”.

The oldest generation currently being tracked, the “Silent” generation (those born between 19), has steadily become more racially liberal over time, though they remain significantly less likely to approve of interracial dating than are those in younger generations (68% in 2009).
