Black males, White women

I just came back from a trip through the east coast of the U.S. (New Jersey, South Carolina and Florida) and I was stunned to see that almost all black males that were with a woman, were with a white woman. Can anyone tell me what is going on? This is obviously not random dating with whomever you bump into.

Do you think that it was really that prevalent or that you noticed it more because maybe it's not common where you live?

I lived in Pittsburgh from 1992 to 2000 and in Philadelphia from 2000 to 2002. Most black males were with black females, but now it is about nine times out of ten that black males are with white females. The percentage has really gone up. I think it is because of the internet. I think that the black males go to interracial dating sites and take their pick of white women who are willing to date blacks. Thank you internet !!!!!

obviously skin tone does matter!!!!!

I still maintain skin colour does not matter. It is just a matter of personal preference. Just like some white guy who will only date black women only or Asian women who will only date white guys.

I am Asian and I have dated White, Asian and Hispanics guys.

Once I dated a

Okcupid's blog addressed this once. According to the data they pulled, black women are sent messages overwhelmimgly less than any other race, and have the lowest response rates when they send messages first. This isn't make believe, and I agree that it's kind of disturbing.

I like reading craigslist ads for fun and I often see ads from white men looking for black women.

I don't think okcupid's articles is serious research though. In my city, it's not rare to see black women with white men. I even know of one Asian (him)-Black (her) couple.
