Didn't know how else to word it but I will try to explain the ethnic part the best I can. Yes I know it isn't the proper term to use but I had to use some term to differentiate between someone like a Raul Esparza (who isn't the kind of latino I am talking about) compared to a Wilmer Valderrama (who is the kind of latino I am talking about).

I have read statistics that say when white women go interracial they go for latinos more than any other ethnic group but my actual experience shows that it might not actually be as common. When we think of Latino we think of looks, someone with dark hair, dark eyes, and usually a skin tone that ranges from tan to almost olive.

Someone like Wilmer Valderrama for example.

Well here is what I mean by ethnically, we know that someone like Charlie Sheen, Lionel Messi, or Raul Esparza are also latinos by definition even though they look no different than a white person. I used the word ethnically to distinguish between what latino truly means (and we come in all colors) vs what is perceived to be a latino by common americans (someone with a swarthy like appearance).

Though I have known a few white anglo females with hite latino boyfriends and husbands that looked no different from a white person, I notice that it is somewhat uncommon or rare here on the east coast to see an ethnically latino male with the same complexion as say Adam Rodriguez or Wilmer Valderrama with a girlfriend or wife that happens to be a white anglo female.

The reason I am asking is because I am a darker latino male who is in a relationship with a white girl and we are one of the very few couples in our area like this, our life has been made difficult at times because of it.

I've seen a lot of white women with Hispanic-looking men in So and Nor Cal. The predominant Hispanic background in this region is Mexican and Puerto Rican. Very common where I have grown up and lived.

Region/location, demographics, cultural/ethnic diversity play a huge role in what you see or don't see represented near you.

I read that carefully and I am not trying to provoke a race war or say which race likes which race but simply trying to get an idea of something. You see, this could help me and my girlfriend because we are thinking about moving away from north florida to an area that is a bit more accepting or tolerant of us. And thanks for making me aware of the rules.

Sorry, but the thread is locked. Unfortunately, this type of thread never ends well in this forum.
