I know many cities here are not very accepting of interracial couples and it can be frowned upon and very rare in many cities.

But which cities in the US would you probably say has the most interracial couples in the US from your experience(based on what you've seen)...specifically black male/white woman.

I'd appreciate any feedback...and please no negativity or rude sarcasm

They're very, very, VERY common here in the Hampton Roads region of Virginia.

I can attest to that.

They are also very common in the Atlanta area. As well as New Orleans and Houston, just to name a couple of cities that pop into my head.

They're super common around any large military installation because interracial marriage itself is so common in the military, which is one reason they're so common in the Hampton Roads area.

That black section is very odd because they mention 3 areas and I can confirm that that isnt true. The dmv area is VERY segregated blacks stick with blacks and whites stick with whites.

Really I've never seen them in any of the areas you mentioned. Statistically cities with large African-American communities have lower interracial couples than areas with majority white populations

Here in the NYC area, it's very common.

Every time you go out to the malls in the suburbs, you're pretty much guaranteed to see at least 2 pairings of the 'black man-white woman' combo. When you walk around Manhattan, it's even more common. Other popular pairings around here are 'white man-asian woman' and 'black man-latin woman'.

Personally, almost everybody that i've dated were of another race than me and i've never really felt unusual for it.

Hmm

DC has a lot of black professionals. College educated black MEN have a reputation for marrying white girls.

Virginia has a looooooooong history of racial intermixing. There is even a town in the state called Passing, named after the phenomenon of mixed kids living as white in the day but going back and living in black homes:

Map of Passing VA | Passing Virginia | MapQuest.com

It is worth noting that the couple behind Loving vs. Virginia was from this area, and one of the reasons why their marriage was no big deal to them is because the races had been mixing (informally) for a very long time.

I see a lot of mixed couples in DMV. A LOT. The federal government tends to hire veterans, and a lot of people who have been in the armed forces are in racially mixed environments and it's no big deal for them to marry someone who doesn't look like them. That attitude is all over the DMV area, co-existing with the strong black community there.
