These inter ethnic marriages have grown in large scale in last for or five decades owing to increase in globalization and consequent interdependency.
The inter cultural relationship brings about a lot of changes in the society. It may be either positive or negative. It may create discrimination in society, as is the case with black slavery, or it may induce formation of new cultures through interethnic marriages. It creates contact between two ethnic groups and there is corresponding cultural change in them to accommodate the new culture. There has been a drastic change in their art, architecture, music and many others.
With current trends of globalization, these inter ethnic cultural studies and their impact on society is gaining importance. Nowadays not just two cultures interact, but its interaction of many different ethnic groups and their effect on individuals is of great importance.
The example taken for study in this case is that of European- American Black Native or Black African cultural Blend. The very base of American culture rests on these intercultural marriages. America is made of people from different countries and cultures. They either mix with Native American Indians or mix among themselves to create new cultures.

The indigenous peoples of the Americas are the pre-Columbian inhabitants of the Americas, their descendants, and many ethnic groups who identify with those peoples. These people once occupied the full of America. But with the arrival of Europeans and the diseases they brought along with them, their number as drastically came down.
Still there was a great deal of mix up between these people and The Europeans. Also at the beginning of the 16th century, many Black slaves from Africa were brought to America and these people form a good share of American Population.
The Core of the Case:
At the beginning of colonization, the superior cultural feel of Europeans, greatly hurdled the interethnic
