Interracial marriage trends

Transcripts available in the following languages:

Up to my mom's generation, of my mom's age, most of the marriages were within. They tried to bring somebody, or yeah somehow so-and-so's friend, or I guess friends, and neighbors, or business partners they try to intermarry their kids. Because I guess, generationally it was sought after to try and have marriages within Japanese community. But we do have a few, and now younger generations are inter marrying into general population, mostly because you just can't find anyone to marry within the community.
