Have the trends crossed for white women and black women, so that now black women are more likely than white women to oppose interracial marriages (Paset & Taylor, 1991)?

Suppose, for example, that we estimated trends in whites' opposition to interracial marriage separately for the South (S) and the Nonsouth (N).
