But while the number of people from black, Asian and mixed-race backgrounds settling down with someone from another group have all risen, white people remain by far the most segregated on the domestic front.
As such "black"/"white" couples are common, in both ways.
There are "north African"/"white" couples, but they might be less common, mainly for religious cultural reasons.
Simple answer because there aren't various race labeling such as one sees say in the United States (Italian-American, Irish-American, African-American, etc..) but in France there is simply the French which encompasses everyone.
Problems start when persons or groups either cannot or will not assimilate and or submit their ways to France.
In 2014, 37% of Americans said having more people of different races marrying each other was a good thing for society, up from 24% four years earlier.
Only 9% in 2014 said this trend was a bad thing for society, and 51% said it doesn’t make much difference.Many people of North African descent shoose to marry people from the same religious background, which is not helping for assimilation.While inversely, many black people are christian (from west indies or Chritian sub saharian Africa), as such tend to mix more quickly with "white" people.Fully a quarter of black men who got married in 2013 married someone who was not black.Only 12% of black women married outside of their race.There must be probably as much people living in the European part of France that have ancestry from those departements.
