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.
That's not what this is about and is something to bring up in the dating or even politics/controversies forums.

You cannot expect for them to just sit on the sidelines while black men increasingly choose to date and marry other races. Often times when my wife and I went out.....it would be groups of black women going out to dinner or to movies, while I would see black guys with white women at the same places.

I live in Minneapolis now. Chris Rock did a show here a while back. He joked that as soon as a black person arrives at the MSP airport that you are immediately given a white girl. "here is your white girl"!. Lol. I have a nephew here who has NEVER dated a black girl and does not even entertain the idea. He only looks for white girls....period. There is something wrong with that of interracial relationship. If you are attracted to a trait that you cannot reproduce, through reproduction, with that person, then its not a healthy attraction.

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.
As many threads as you've made, if you haven't gotten the advice you're looking for by now, then too bad.

Here is some information on this and it may surprise some people: BlackDemographics.com | MARRIAGE

So, there are other dynamics at play.

Thanks for the demographics. I doubt that the MSP area would be considered a microcosm of the data you presented.....my home state of Michigan likely would be, however.

I still have never even visited a place where it appeared that black women would rather date non-black men. I mean.....if you are raised in a overwhelmingly white area.....then what you will be used to is dating people who reflect your environment. Seattle seems to be in the middle of the pack, in terms of black white segregation, according to this dated link. CensusScope -- Segregation: Dissimilarity Indices

I would think cities at the bottom of the list, in other words....the least racially segregated areas, would have high levels of interracial relationships.

I think the thing that makes Seattle and similar areas different is that there are actually more Black men than Black women in these areas or if there is less, it isn't by much. I believe that Denver, San Diego and a few others are like this. I believe that the source that I used has that information as well.

I think that dissimilarity index uses 2000 information.

If you break it down by age group, the pattern is the same in most major cities. Between ages 18-30, there are more single Black men than single Black women. I suspect this will be more so in places like Seattle, Denver, and especially San Diego with a sizable part of the male population in the military.

Yup and that is a dynamic that plays a part in things like this topic. I'm glad you brought up age, as people look at this in totality without considering life expectancy.

Also, that source also showed the percentage of Black males and Black females that have never been married and I thought that information was interesting. With that we have to also consider the incarceration/prison industrial complex/War On Drugs/crime/law aspect as well and what gender tends to be involved in that as well.

You are clearly mixing me up with the wrong person.

It isn't even about Indians, I saw a thread posted by a latino on a similar topic being deleted, the double standard is just insane. It's a travesty that you and like 3 or 4 people have a say in what threads get locked and which ones don't.
