Attitudes about race change as younger generations come along, according to The Pew Research Center. Millennials, or those 18 to 29, said they would be fine if someone in their family married someone of another race. What interesting is the numbers held steady regardless of the race or ethnicity. That means Simone and Nadia are more likely live in a world that is not only far more diverse but more accepting of diversity as well.

Over the last several decades, the American public has grown increasingly accepting of interracial dating and marriage. This shift in opinion has been driven both by attitude change among individuals generally and by the fact that over the period, successive generations have reached adulthood with more racially liberal views than earlier generations. Millennials are no exception to this trend: Large majorities of 18-to-29 year olds express support for interracial marriage within their families, and the level of acceptance in this generation is greater than in other generations.
