I was sitting down eating with a group of friends and two of them had lived in Boston. One woman said she saw so many Asian girls with White men and White women with Black men. The man said he did see Asian women with White men but not that many White women with Black men couples. The two got into some sort of an argument over it.

So I will just ask this, what are common interracial couples in Boston?

Everyone may have different commentary based on what they are exposed to. I live near Beacon Hill, work in the Financial District, and spent most my time in the downtown neighborhoods. I would say Asian women with White men is the most common interracial couple that I see; that being said I wouldn't say it's as common as in other major cities. I don't see White women with Black men very often. It could be a different story, however, in other parts of the metro. For instance, I do see more interracial couples of different sorts whenever I'm across the river in Cambridge.

Although I dont live there any more you'll see more asian women with white men than ww/bm. I might take some heat for this but Boston is still pretty racists towards blacks not the in your face type racism but more kinda off hand type stuff IMO

I heard it is common near college campuses and especially at Harvard and MIT

Are you saying that Asian women are racist against black men?
