I had identified closer with a lion than I had with any other female protagonist from a Disney movie. Because of this, I grew skeptical of the advances of males of a different race. Now, why is interracial dating such a hot topic at Princeton? I believe this interest comes from four factors: 1 prevalence in media; 2 the novelty of visible differences; 3 frustration with the dating scene; and 4 growing interest and awareness of discussion of race in general.
I will explain what all these factors mean below please note that I am writing only in the viewpoint of a black heterosexual woman :.

We hypothesized that interracial couples would be perceived more negatively than same-race couples, that survey participants would find those of the same race more attractive, and that they would be more willing to date within their race. Our participants were from a convenience sample of 77 females, 22 males, and 3 non-binary individuals, most of whom attend Winthrop University.

Then, we displayed a series of photos of similarly attractive people and asked the participants to rank their attraction to each photo along with their willingness to date the person photographed. Then, we asked for the background of the participants, including their numbers of interracial and same-race relationships.
Finally, we asked a series of demographic questions measuring gender, race, and age.

These figures are used in a context leading the reader to believe that substantial changes have taken place on the path to a more integrated society and the number of interracial marriages could be used as an indicator. Unfortunately, the actual numbers do not paint a very optimistic picture. The numbers used in the article were for all interracial marriages. Yes, change has occurred over the past three decades.
