It looks like I was right that Black-Woman/Asian-Spouse is the rarest. Even taking into account that whites are much more numerous than Asian that seems to work out.

You need to come to Syracuse then, because you see that more and more. Actually, in the department I work in, there is a White guy with a Black wife and another former employee that was originally from Bosnia also has a Black wife. I also know of a couple of White guys(one is Arab) that have Black girlfriends in my department too. So, it does happen.

The way I size that up - the military life forces people to interact, both on and off duty, with others of all races. That's something that doesn't happen in civilian life for most people. Add in the higher percentage of blacks (especially black women) in the military compared to civilian life. Top it off with the skewed male/female ratio, with guys chasing anything in a skirt, and you get a much higher chance of a WM/BF combo than in the everyday world.
Well guess what! I actually knew two white southern boys in the military who were married to black women. I believe that many southern good ol boys choose military life to escape the South and live life as they want. Hopefully people who know little about the south (although they think they do) will come to realize that not every southerner approves of the racism and prejudice that they have too often been accused of.

its absolutely false that black girl/white american guys couples dont exist only in the south cause i live in LA and lived in Ny and DC , but i never see a bf/wm couple in general, also when i heard of them the white guys involved are always foreign born , never american.

so its true that the rare bf/wm couples that exist in Usa are always composed by foreign born white guys and never by american ones?

In the relationship I knew the black woman was foreign, but the white guy American. I showed you examples earlier that included American white guys married/engaged to American black gals. Like the former mayor of Tallahassee, Robert De Niro, or Venus Williams. (Williams's boyfriend is from Texas, not overseas)

You seem to be hung up on the idea it doesn't happen because you haven't seen it.

The rarest couple is probably Pacific Islander and Native American

This is more so a case of financial status than anything else... A lot of black men drop their black female partners when they become financially successful and go find themselves some big-chested blond. It's a fact. And some black women are often game when a white man shows interest if it just so happens that he is rich [and/or] famous. Doesn't Clint Eastwood's wife Dina have some black in her too? I can never figure out whether she is Brazilian, Indian, or mixed British, but something is African in that mix I just knew it when I first saw her from up-close. At any rate, in Los Angeles one can see all sorts of pairings including all races in the spectrum. There is a bit of everything in Tinseltown. I guarantee ya. Oh, and Halle Berry. Her hubbie sure is a cuttie. It will be more common to see a black female who has white in the mix pairing with a white male, that is also true. Now, from my travelings and observations I can also say that English men and German men are the most addicted to the dark-fleshed female with Afro-inclined features and natural aroma. Must be in the genes. They genuinely are mad about them! The natural scent of a person is just as important in pairings often times.

Dina Eastwood's father is half-black and half-Japanese. Her mother is of Welsh, Irish, and German ancestry. So one-quarter black, but she states she did get called the n-word in elementary school. (Sad)
