British family values


Immigration from Southern Asia and the Caribbean has drastically changed the face of Britain in recent decades, and a recent survey has revealed that the traditional British nuclear family, composed of married mum and dad with kids, is less and less common — and is most likely to be found not among whites, but among those of Asian ancestry, reports the GUARDIAN (UK).

Perhaps emulating the royal family, white Britons are increasingly likely to divorce, cohabit without marrying, and have kids out of wedlock. Immigrants from Caribbean countries have even higher rates of single parenthood and cohabitation — higher in Britain, in fact, than in the Caribbean.

Immigrants from Asian countries like India, Pakistan, and Bengladesh, on the other hand, are far more likely to form traditional families, managing to get married and stay married more often than do their white compatriots.

FIGHTING DISINFORMATION

As President Trump and his acolytes ramp up their efforts to distort the truth and discredit the Mueller investigation, you can see how urgent our new priority to build a team focused on exposing disinformation will be.

If you're fed up with the lies coming from Washington and proliferating on social media, help us push back with a tax-deductible donation today.

We still need to raise about $105,000 by June 30 so we can bring on a full-time reporter and a data scientist to dig deep on disinformation—who's behind it, how it spreads, and how we can counter it—before this fall's midterms. Please don't sit this one out. Join us and your fellow MoJo readers today.
