Although intermarriage between Ashkenazim and Sephardim/Mizrahim is increasingly common in Israel, and social integration is constantly improving, disparities continue to persist.
Interracial marriages have increased steadily since then.
The empirical material used to amplify this argument is a study of four major bias incidents in New York City in the period 1987-1992.
Subsequent to these incidents, the well-publicized rioting in Los Angeles occurred, a racially-tinged event that caused considerable death and destruction of property.
However most Christian and Jewish theologians interpret these same verses as referring to inter-faith marriages. Self, author of an Internet site "Interracial Marriage is against God's Law" concludes that God created the different races after the incident at the Tower of Babel.
Other passages refer to the Holiness Code of behavior that is generally believed to apply only to Jews and is unrelated to marriage. Genesis records that at that time, humans showed their arrogance towards God by trying to build a structure so tall that it would reach the firmament of Heaven.
