How is the interracial dating scene in Las Vegas?

Thinking of going to college in Las Vegas, and I'm a black male. I was looking at the colleges in Vegas and found that most of them are predominatly White, Asian, and Hispanic.

How would I fair dating wise with each of these groups in vegas?

I believe the black population in Las Vegas is around 8 or 10%, but it seems to me like every other couple I see these days is (are?) racially mixed. Nobody worries about that stuff here.

You will think that (a) you died and went to Heaven or (b) you're a kid in a candy store with $20 bucks in his pocket.

You will fair well. Most people don't care about race in Vegas. What matters is looks, life style, income, personality and maybe transportation.

I know surveys can be skewed but I saw a survey last year that said Vegas was high on a list of cities where people claimed that race was last on their preference list of people to date. I think goals, religion and body type was at the top of most people's list.

By the way, my wife and myself are an interracial couple. Never had any problems in Vegas at least not in our face. Now that I think about it...Half of my co-workers are considered an interracial couple.

As others have said, nobody really cares about stuff like interracial dating/marriage, ESPECIALLY here in Vegas. Maybe in other parts of the country that would be an issue, but definately not here.
