Wrong! I've seen this troll on numerous websites including this one. He's an East Indian troll OBSESSED with interracial dating and making threads about IR in LA, NYC, the South, Canada, Europe, etc. I've seen him post these same threads EVERYWHERE!

He used to solely ask questions about Indian men in interracial couples but now he's expanding that to IR in general. He has more accounts than sections on this forum and has been doing this nonsense for YEARS.

He needs to get a life!

And funny how you're obsessed with black people and and saying how we "flip the race card" on just about every thread that has to do with us, including non-controversial ones...talk about the pot calling the kettle black.

Yes, blame it on an "Indian"...there ya go!

As if an Indian would author a thread like this:

Is Los Angeles racist against black people?

On the other hand I hear that Mexican gangs are murdering black people, OC is full of racists that commit hate crimes, ppl stare at black people and call them the n-word. That black people are made to feel unwelcome in any area that isn't heavily African-American and that it's just all pretty bad.

I would love to hear the opinions of Angelinos on this topic so I can get a better sense of what LA really is like for black people. I would love to live there but I'm on the fence at this point. It seems wonderful but it's really hard to ignore the information available online.

Let me know what Los Angeles is really like. Thanks!
An "Indian"? REALLY???

He's yours. Own it.

So, I happen to be wrong. Big deal! It doesn't change the fact that there WAS a troll who happened to be of Asian Indian descent who used to ask a billion questions about interracial dating all over the Internet in this same format and style. He's gotten banned on this website numerous times and other websites. My radar simply went off due to the similarities of their posting styles and topics.

I'm not blaming "an Indian" either. I simply pointed out that this notorious, long-time IR obsessed troll happened to be Indian. Funny how you accuse others of "race baiting" when you misinterpret peoples' posts and do the same exact thing.

You are behaving like a petulant child and the sad thing is that I'm a senior in college and you're probably much older than I am.(but I wouldn't know)

Who bases his opinion of a race off an Internet forum anyway? I could easily find posts from "race-obsessed" whites but it's fatuous to use an Internet forum to judge an entire race.

Now, go ahead, and accuse me of "race baiting." It's not even worth arguing with you.

A lot of these people like that love to shift the blame on black people. Also check out her past posts. Almost half of them are anti-black.

-just choosing to ignore the off-topic arguments-

If I had to guess most common, I guess I'd say Hispanic x White, or White guy x East Asian woman. But I think there's a lot more 'variety' if you can call it that, in interracial relationships here than in other cities. I've seen countless...um, combinations.

In an interracial relationship myself, and happy to say that having moved here, we both immediately noticed a lot more couples like us. I feel that it's much more accepted/common place here, no one stares.

despite hispanic/white being the most common pairing across the country I don't really see that pairing being the most common in LA because there is such a large socioeconomic difference between whites and hispanics. i guess it would either be white/asian or black/hispanic

I would say that the most common interracial coupling around LA is White guy/Asian girl, I haven't seen many non-Hispanic White/Hispanic or Black couples. Whatever the combination, interracial couples in LA are a small minority since people nearly always go for a mate pertaining to the same ethnic/racial background.
