do you agree with me that in Usa latin guys/black girls couples are the most common form of interracial relationship involving black women while the rarest is black girls/white american guys ones?

Hi there, I'm in a part of the country where there are plenty of latinos. I have noticed them dating more blacks and where I am I do see more black males with white females than the other way, but I really have no clue if black females/white males are the rarest couple. You know, I've noticed things, never really thought about it too much, but interesting.

I think I have only seen maybe 2 couples ever that were black female/white male.

around here thought it probably is more common to see a black man and a white woman as a couple than a black/black couple.

although it probably is more common to see a hispanic female/black man, they usually get some hot looking Spanish girls, matter of fact I was checking out this black guys hot little Spanish girl today.

Maybe it's because white men and black women don't often find each other attractive? I have known many white women who were attracted to black men, but I don't think I have ever known a white man that is attracted to black women.

Body types may play a role here, white men are typically attracted to slim/petite type women, which is why white/asian relationships are more common.

(I'm not saying there are no petite black women out there, but black women in general are more "shapely")

Seeing as I've named a personal and a celebrity example, plus statistics of 100,000 people being in a marriage like that, that should be enough to show they exist.

Still possibly you need more.

It's not common but "doesn't exist" is clearly wrong.

It's not abundant, but it's not a shocker to see it in my area.
And a side not, I barely to almost never see black women with Asian or Spanish men. I see the bw/wm couples more often.

Maybe it's because I'm young, and the generation is more tolerant when it comes to that kind of stuff, but white men and black women dating is definitely not a shocker to see anymore.

But I think it's safe to say that black women are the least likely to date out of their own race than any other race/gender.

A Black & Hispanic couple is the most common interracial dating I see. I see plenty of Black Girls with Hispanic Guys and I see plenty of Hispanic Girls with Black Guys. Here Blacks & Hispanics live in the same neighborhoods, there's a lot of similarities between the two, they get along great (unlike a lot of other places in the US), etc.

Although its rare (for me) to see a Black Woman with a White Man its not rare for me to see a Black Girl with a White Boy, times are changing and in this generation people don't really care about race.

The media generally holds up white women (models, etc.) as the ideal form of feminine beauty and black males (athletes, etc,) as the ideal of masculine beauty.

Thus I am not surprised that White Woman/Black man is the dominant form of interracial couple.
