Who really wants to deal with racial strife, overt or not?

I'm with you on the first sentence, but I wouldn't be surprised if this thread was to prove some "point" that you mentioned in this post. I doubt that it is a legitimate thread, to be honest.

I don't know about this...While it will depend on the individual, I don't think it is totally different outside of the South in this regard and other factors may be at play.

I live in the Atlanta area and recently, I've seen a surge of interracial dating among Black women. At least within the last 2 years.

I'm pretty legitimate, I wouldn't spend my weekend off from work tending to a thread that I just made up. I just thought I would make a thread based on my experience, and based on some of the other threads of black men in the Seattle area I would say I was pretty spot on with some of my observations.

If it makes you uncomfortable reading my post then 1. Pull your head out of your butt. 2. Go somewhere else and don't detract away from individuals who actually want sound relocation advice.

Not here to prove some far out point.

I don't know man it sucks. I cant speak on being an Indian man and dating and relocation but it seems that other people would rather bury their heads in the sand on these issues and pretend that "race doesn't matter" and "it must be you". When there are several other threads and posts about location and dating with regards to minorities to back up some of our claims, it doesn't seem right and I'm sorry.

Nobody, but it's always better to know what you're up against.

I think all of y'all are the same person myself.

point stands

why not just ban the guy but let the thread remain unlocked so men of that background who want advice about the matter can get it?

It was a perfectly legitimate thread but because one whiner made a scene, mods deleted it.

No wonder this forum has so many bad reviews, some days I wish a person would come up with a better version of this place where people of various backgrounds can get answers to their question.

I just wish that men of other minority groups could be allowed to talk about race on this forum because racism and dislike towards non-black minority groups, especially in the dating realm, does exist. Nothing wrong with a person wanting to know what city is good for them.

Like I know Trump is president and nationalism is on the rise but are we to a point where men of certain minority groups cannot get legitimate advice? At this rate you'll be telling a Pakistani guy seeking interracial dating advice to move to a racist city like Atlanta.
