I think most are simply more likely to notice a black woman who is with a non black man, but these unions are very few and far between.

I am black so just was wondering if NYC is acceptable to other ethnic groups dating each other.
I see black men with all sorts of women in NYC ranging from higher and lower social class, depending on the neighborhood.

I'm not sure how old you are, because while your views do apply to parents, they are so far from the truth when it comes to the younger generation. As a 31-year old Arab man who dates from all races, and mostly black women actually, I can tell you that your statement is blatantly wrong. A lot of other Arabs I know are the same.

Anyhow, good luck with your dating life. And remember, you are twice likely to be defeated when you think of yourself as an inferior.

As a white man married to a woman of color I am attuned to seeing these couples because I look for them. I've been seeing more and more lately. They've even turned up on the ad that plays on the Chase Bank ATM screen.

And why is that? Sounds like some sort of weird fetish or something.

I had this discussion with many interracial couples here and they all say that everyone should try an interracial relationship and why limit their choices. I do agree but I still don't believe most NYers are open to interracial relationships. Majority are still fixated on their own race or limit to one other race to maintain social acceptance.

That's true. The culture differences really come into play as relationships get serious, especially when kids come along in my experience.

I know dating is certainly different than marrying. But Pew came out yesterday with an interesting report on interracial marriage across the U.S.


Intermarriage in the U.S. 50 Years After Loving v. Virginia | Pew Research Center


Among their findings, which are national, not local:


Black men are twice as likely as black women to marry interracially


The biggest growth in intermarriages has been among African-Americans


Male or Female, Africa-Americans are still the least likely of any ethnic group to marry interracially


Asian women are far more likely than Asian men to marry interracially


Hispanics and Asian are the most likely of all ethnic groups to marry interracially (about 25% of newlyweds)


The single biggest combination is with one partner white and the other Hispanic


Intermarriage is most common in big metros




There's lots more stuff, plus a link to the full report.
