My wife and I are currently thinking about relocating from Las Vegas to Dallas. I am a black man and my wife is a white woman. During our three years in Las Vegas we didn't experience any racial problems.

However, we are very concerned if Dallas is a good place for interracial couples? If so, what neighborhoods in Dallas?

Why are you concerned? Dallas is a big city and it is common to see interracial couples. There's absolutely no reason to be concerned!

Very accepting and more so than any other city I have lived in. Racial prejudice can be anywhere but I will tell you that I have not seen any sort of prejudice or remarks towards interracial couples and have not encountered personally any biggots or biggoted words, of course I don't surround myself with that. Our closest friends are a interracial couple who were married in our home. She is white and he is black and they had no issues at all living here. They though live now in Seattle and have for some time.

Dallas is fine for interracial couples. We have several friends that are. We live in the "burbs" (Garland to be exact) and they are plenty of people around here that interracial, mixed, whatever. I honestly think I see more of it around Dallas than I do anywhere else in the U.S.

Good luck and welcome to the neighborhood

You have to remember that this is still the south and is not as accepted as it is out on the left coast. So there will be some differences.

Good Luck

Watson,

Don't let him discourage you. I am a "Southerner" and I have no problem w/ people of different races. I have many friends that are interracial couples and we all get along great. The attitude that Dallas is still "The South" is so outdated it is not even funny. Dallas is not the "South". Ask any "Southerner" in Alabama or Georgia if Dallas is in "The South" and they will probably scold you. Unlike the "South" when you are out dining in the Big D you and order Iced Tea, "Sweet or Unsweet" is not an option.

Dallas is a very "hip" metropolitan city and always has been more "cutting edge" than any other city in the "South". Seeing interracial couples is everyday around here.

Dallas is one of the most accepting places I have lived for having interracial couples.

I agree that Dallas is a good place for interracial couples, but it is not 100% friendly. That doesn't mean "Hate Crimes" but there may be an occasional stare or two. I wish it wasn't that way.

I would say quit watching hollywood movies. If anybody around here "cares" about inter-racial couples, it would seem it's the "African American" community, more so than the whites. Hell, it was an inter racial fling that helped create this great Republic (The Yellow Rose of Texas). Now gay couples on the other hand..... lol I kid, I kid =0)
