Wikipedia, Jan. 12, 2012: Interracial (Interracial is an adjective related to a supposed racial group. It can have different connotations in different contexts: Interracial marriage is marriage between two people of different races; Interracial adoption means placing a child of one racial group or ethnic group with adoptive parents of another racial group or ethnic group; Multiracial (similar to biracial or mixed-racial group) is an adjective describing people who are more than a single racial group.) Multiracial (The terms multiracial and mixed-race describe people whose ancestries come from multiple races. Unlike the term biracial, which often is only used to refer to having parents or grandparents of two different races, the term multiracial may encompass biracial people but can also include people with more than two races in their heritage, or also may refer to the origin of more generationally distant genetic admixtures of more than one race in a person's DNA.)
