I rarely see Asian men with other races. I do see black men with white women, but I see more white men with black women now a days.

But the skin color really shouldn't matter given that it's the year 2017. 2050 let's hope every race And ethnic background will accept everyone including Arabs & Indians who are extremely strict on dating outside of their race. Some things really do have to end at some point. It won't always,last certain dating rules just because of your religion. If you love the person that is all that should matter IMO.
There maybe a slight uptick from 2 decades ago but I wouldn't go crazy saying I see way more interracial couples either. Even for NY people still stick to their own for the most part even the progressive or hipster types (but you may see more interracial intermingling within that sub culture).

I simply don't understand the obsession that a number of middle class and upper income black men tend to have with respect to IR dating. Middle/Upper income black men have access to women like this:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m_DD...68ySF7AWMS-CXT

The woman in the video btw, is a Black American Yale grad and tech writer/entrepreneur. She primarily dates middle/upper income black men, but is still single, despite being beautiful, in shape, highly educated and upper income. Part of the issue is, a lot of black middle/upper income men know there are a lot of single black women and choose to play the field instead of settling down.

We can't have strong, prosperous Black communities without the men being willing to commit, get married and raise a family with black women. The state of blacks in the U.S. is very sad.

I have nothing against other races, I'm simply a strong believer in middle/upper income black people pooling their resources together and developing high functioning communities. This is the only way to ensure that future generations of black men and women are truly able to thrive and compete in this global world.

Middle/Upper income Black men need to understand that chasing after white, asian, hispanic etc women will NEVER help blacks collectively, because their money will ultimately be benefiting OTHER communities, not their own.

I don't see an increase that much in IR dating, but I do see an increase in the relaxed attitudes towards it.

You really can't blame black men. I have seen such hatred and hostility towards them by black women that it's not even funny. You can't have it both ways. An educated black guy has to deal with tons of crap from his own community. He's a "sell out" for being educated and I've seen a good deal of black women utterly disgusted with them. Then there's the attitudes that some women have.

You also have black men that don't feel successful until they've "married up". What black men do isn't any any different from other minority men. The difference is the amount of hostility they receive from inside their community and outside.

IMO, we should avoid racial mixing. An offspring would have the most ideal human attributes when it generates its DNA from the same race.

That's an idiotic statement...what are ideal human attributes you speak of?

That's true, I am Asian and don't see much interracial relationships from my male peers aside from myself.

Yeah exactly, thus most of this attributes are associated with Trump supporters.

Perhaps you don't know this, but truth be told, the majority of black American women prefer to date/marry and have children with black American men. Yes, there are many disagreements among black people, but by and large, we prefer our OWN men.

I also think it's important to contextualize this issue. In my example, I highlighted a Yale grad who is beautiful, in shape, very bright, upper income and entrepreneurial. The woman that I highlighted does not date interracial, she primarily dates equally successful upper income black men, therefore she doesn't believe that a black man is a "sell out" for being educated, because 9 times out of 10, she is just as educated as the black men that she chooses to date.

Just as you wouldn't expect white trash to mix with upper income whites, why include the mindset of a number of lower income blacks in this discussion, when my comment was specifically geared at middle/upper income educated black men and women. Upper income black men do not receive hostility from upper income black women. Many are simply uninterested in marrying intelligent, beautiful and classy black women, if the black woman in question doesn't have their preferred skin complexion.

Middle and Upper income black men have access to equally successful middle and upper income black women, therefore, in my opinion, there is simply no need for black middle/upper income people to date interracial. The emphasis and focus should be on building positive black/male female relationships and marriages, to produce healthy, vibrant, smart competitive black children.
