Despite The Odds, Omaha Nebraska Swirling It Up!

We welcome all interracial couples and multicultural families. This is a group where we can feel free to discuss the issues and problems of our lives as well as celebrate who we are and how we feel about our diversity- Lanee Amador

According to the 2008 Census Bureau, Omaha's racial makeup of the city is 78.4% White, 13.3% African American, 0.7% Native American, 1.7% Asian, 0.1% Pacific Islander, 1.92% from two or more races. 7.5% of the population are Hispanic or Latino of any race.  Despite (or in spite of) the numbers, The Midwest Interracial Couples/Multicultural Families Group is breaking new ground!

Founded by Lanee February 2010, its been a little difficult organizing the Meetups and picking up members. The Midwest Interracial Group has 6 members and is expected to increase as the word gets around...and perhaps the restriction on the maximum age will drop.

So if you happen to live in Omaha, the home of Paypal, Warren Buffet, TD Ameritrade and LinkedIn, show Lanee some love and get your swirl...if you're under 35.

I'm Out!
