i ask it cause i live in LA and lived in Nyc and DC but never seen a bf/wm couple in general, also when i heard of such couples the white guys involved are always foreign born , never american. on the other hand i see a lot of black girls dating hispanic and sometimes asian guys.

In terms of dating I don't know, but in terms of marriage or cohabitation I think Black-Woman/Asian-Man is the rarest kind. Although they don't really include American Indian so possibly Amerindian-Woman/Asian-Man is rarer.

I have some good friends - she is Black and he is good old American born European stock white. They've been married for quite awhile now. I never thought it odd or unusual. Their personalities are very complimentary so no one ever thought twice about them being different races when they got together. But I think you're right - I see more white girl/black guy than the other way around. Not sure why that is.

According to depictions of interracial couples on television, it is quite rare (while BM/WW is depicted as almost rivalling BM/BW). However, when I was growing up, there were several WM/BW couples in my town. It certainly exists.

I live in an area that's only about 5% black, but I don't know if I'd say it's unheard of. In the past white girls here seemed to "go after" black guys more, sometimes due to racist ideas or to anger their parents, but I don't know if a white guy dating a black girl was that unusual. Robert De Niro's wife is black.

Most Black women apparently marry and cohabit within race. Still about 100,000 black-female/white-male couples apparently exist. I still think Asian-Man/Black-Woman is the rarest. I mean except for maybe Asian-Man/American-Indian Woman, but that might partly be rare because both groups are relatively small.

Well...this is not something I normally take heed of because of the diversity of the area I live in and the company I keep.

So without asking for greencards or visas......I personally know of at least 6 couples that match this criteria.
I'm sure there's many many more.

Why is this important to you?

I see more Black/White interracial couples here in Texas than I did back in LA growing up. I did see more white/asian and black/asian couples in LA. My wife and I fit into that first one since my wife is Asian and I am white (Lebanese, but I look white).
