What do you think is the general opinion?
And what´s yours? And why?

Generally, I think more women are against interracial dating than men. MY OPINION. Personally, I could care less. I think people should be with someone who makes them happy, regardless of race. However, I HATE for a BLACK man to say that he doesn't date Black women because we are gold diggers and whatever else. I think if you have a preference it is your preferene alone, but you should not put down other races or your own race to justify your preference. Now, my mother on the other hand, has told my siblings and me that if we date someone outside of our race we better not bring them home to her. She does not agree with mixing races AT ALL. So personally, I think it just depends on the person.

Have you been on this site?

no, really, wait...

Have you been to the MALL lately?

There are more and more interracial couples...i think some of these relationships are based on hate of their own kind (thank God I wasn't like that when I dated, before I got married)

But I would have to say no...in fact, i think more people would rather marry someone outside their race than inside it, these days.

I keep wondering about my daughter...who will she marry? What color will he be?

Do you want her to marry a black man? And why?

I don't care. I honestly think black people that are against IR is mostly for cultural reasons. Some may not like it, but they will not mistreat the person or the person they are dating because of it, atleast from what I have witnessed.

Even though I'm a white dude and may not understand certain things about the AA community, I can sincerely say that it's rather unfair to ask such a vague question because AAs are like anyone else in that they don't all think alike. Simply enough, some are and some aren't against IR dating. Hell a girl I knew from years ago who is a beautiful black girl from what I understand has dated at least one white guy.

I never asked for an exact answer, I asked for what people thought was the general opinion among AAs.

This one's REALLY hairy, MOP. And I think you've made probably the most true statement about the topic: "AAs are like anyone else in that they don't all think alike".

There are Black folks that ONLY date White, for fetishist reasons - others for social reasons - others for economic reasons. There are Black folks that WILL NEVER date White for racial reasons. Or social reasons. Or whatever.

People get all lathered up about other people's reasons for liking or disliking IR dating as if it's their business. For the record, I think there there ARE reasons pro and con that are reprehensible. And those reasons are equally distasteful to me whether the person in question is Black or White or chartreuse. Basically - I HATE it when people make dating decisions (or, ANY decision) based SOLELY on race/color. But that's just me. And at the end of the day, it's not my business.

Good point. In fact I remember watching a PBS special about black celebs tracing their routes back to Africa and what tribes, including Whoopi Goldberg and Chris Tucker. In the special it said in there that, on average, AAs have around 20% European ancestry or something like that. So for those AAs who hate IR as if it is some sort of sin, then it would be rather self-hating to do so because you are very likely the product of one from a number of generations back.

The general opinion is definitely no. I guarantee you almost everyone who has posted here is mixed. Even the racist trolls are mixed.

The reason I am asking is because I have never been in America and movies and tv here give the impression that AAs generally are against it.

I personally never understood why anyone would care about what the next person is doing considering they dont know the person and wouln't even see them again, with me i couldn't care what the net person i doing, most people who hate ir dating dont really have a life that is why they have time to whine and moan all day and this applies to all races.

It's okay I'm a product of interracial relationship. Both my parents are biracial. Interracial is very common here in america, it is very popular. You might see it more in some places then other's but it's alive.

My daughter wants to go to the prom with a black guy she met at work...she is white. I was brought up in a world where interracial dating was a no-no. I have seen so many white girls beaten up by black girls out of jealousy. I have also seen them shunned and tormented by their white freinds. I am not prejudice. I have seen mixed couples together and it does not bother me in the least. I just don't want my daughter to pose the risk of getting treated horribly by others and causing friction by those that cannot accept it.

Ohh lord here we go again with the IR dating stuff. Jesus tittyfhucking Christ on a pogostick, who the f cares? Can we please get off of this subject?Don't take this as me being against IR as I've got nothing against it. Everybody has the right to date whoever they want and I respect that and I have not bashed on any fellow user in this forum for doing so as it doesn't bother me, but I just wish that this subject would stop being discussed. We have over 50 threads about IR dating and I'm surprised that these threads get over 1000 or more hits than any other topic discussed in our forum. It apppears that we care more about seeking out social acceptance from non-blacks than fixing more important problems in our community that are the likely reasons behind blacks dating IR. To answer your question, some are against it while some are 100% cool with it, with the anti-IR people are against it for cultural and historical reasons.
