I would say in the Metro Detroit area, that I have met or know would be Arab/Black. The oddest part to me is its usually Arab man/Black woman. I've met a couple who have children. With black males here its usually the typical white or hispanic woman. I've never seen a black male with an Arab woman

I know of Arab/Chaldean men & black women but not Hispanic and black. That's unusual since most Hispanics are regulated to the smallest part of Detroit's southwest side.

most, and most of them being Mexican. There are some PR and DR living in southwest and other areas of Detroit and southwest has some of everybody. Most of the half AA/half hispanic people I know are either DR or PR. But when I said black men with hispanic women I was mainly talking about them. I have seen one or two with Mexican women and also a couple of black women/PR or DR men mixes too. Matter of fact the black/DR or PR people I know are products of black woman/hispanic man. either way it go, depending on what the parent looks like I kind of don't see that as a "mix" per se

but yea its really beginning to not be such a rarity of the Arab/Chaldean men and black women in the city. I've seen plenty this past summer. A girl I grew up with is currently pregnant with her Lebanese boyfriends baby

*the girl from the show Parenthood who played the older sister, Ragen Gomez I believe, she is a PR/Black from southwest

Oh you are referring to the PR/DR blacks and AA... well yes that counts too I guess. But you won't find them living downtown, eastside, westside, north and northern suburbs though. They are primarily in southwest Detroit Downriver south of the airport area and all that. I used to wonder why they didn't branch out and live in the city like other foreigners would.

I have yet to see Asian/AA mix though. Not just Detroit, Illinois and GA but elsewhere. Now that would be unusual.

I'm black. I have two half-Irish, one half-Mexican, and one half-Korean cousin.

not with PR or DR. Don't forget some PR and DR are racially no different than AA. You'd have to ask what they were sometimes. The DR and PR I know (well the half ones) both parents are from the Eastside. One I went to school with parents were from the westside. Its Mexicans you won't meet outside of southwest really.

The girls who used to do my nails are Korean/Black. I just saw, for the first time Asian guy/black woman couple NYE
