If you are wondering about data, trends, statistics and academic information here are some good places to start.
Interracial Statistics -
A lot of people want to know why I think AF/WM is the most common
interracial couple in America. Usually interracial couple brings
to mind a WW/BM image. Initially it was just my impression, but
later I found some US census data to back it up. This table is
confusing because it changes comparison. Nevertheless, it shows
that the number one interracial couple is Asian/White. American
Indians have the highest rate of out marriage, but of all interracial
couples, the majority are A/W.
Original Census Data
- This data is even more confusing since the tables don't line
up on the screen. The way one table (race
of wife by race of husband) is laid out seems to indicate
that Asian White couple is declining when in fact, the Asian
White couple is becoming more common. The table discuss AF/WM
as a percentage of Interracial Couples.
White marriages, increased, but not as quickly as other interracial
marriages. Although Asians and whites are marrying more than
ever, other interracial couples are becoming more common.
the Asian Americans - Summarizes statistics on Asians in
America, where they live, age, their country of origin (Vietnamese
is the most common, 60% born overseas etc...). The Raw
Figures are a little harder to follow.

Condom Failure by Race - The topic of penis size by race comes up a lot. No studies have been done to date that correlate penis size to race. One discussion board participant quoted this article as relevant. "The World Health Organization bases its specifications for condom width on consumer preference and penis size, citing three studies. Taken together, the studies show significant variations in penis size within all population groups [emphemphasisded], but also indicate that men of African descent on average have a slightly wider and longer penis size, Caucasian men have a medium size, and Asian men a slightly narrower and shorter size.

Eroding the Barriers, Interracial Marriages (Washington Post Article) - Very informative.
"Today, almost one-third of U.S.-born Hispanics ages 25
to 34 are married to non-Hispanic whites. In addition, 36 percent
of young Asian Pacific American men born in the United States
marry white women, and 45 percent of U.S.-born Asian Pacific
American women took white husbands (Host note: I think these
figures are a little high, but the trend is probably accurate.)
