Who cares? If an Italian guy likes a black woman he will make that fact known. If he does not it is more than likely they will not even bother. From what I've seen when it comes to Italians, a lot of them stick with their own people. Very rarely will you see them with anyone not of their culture. I see nothing wrong with that. They have pride in their culture, unlike a lot of black people in the US. It's like black americans will literally kill themselves to be with anyone that is not black. Not every man from any culture is going to like black women. Within certain cultures the people will stick with their own, and they are happy. That's great. Why is it black people can't do the same? Smh.

My boyfriend is Sicilian, and his grandfather who is like 60 something years old agrees that mainly Sicilian ancestory is a mixture of black descendants. So it wouldn't be off that some would like black women.
Quite frankly I believe that any person alive with a natural tan, or brown color pigment is of an Native American or Black ancestory anyway. I wonder where the color came from. I don't understand how racism is so high when no one really knows where the hell their families came from.
Lastly, what difference does it make if an Italian or Sicilan or Roman chooses to like a black woman???
Personally the attraction would be the fact that from the Italian men I know they are very confident, like to wear the pants, and black women are also very confident and like to wear the pants, so there is an chemistry. Black men down the characteristics that black women have where as an Italian man might find it compatible.

To me it depends on the persons, if they are openminded, intercultural and can appreciate each other's personality beauty and intelligence,
Love is possible.
Even those with prejudices preconcepts closedminded and a bit racist ignorants may fall in love with a beautiful black woman.

I'm a black girl and the only white guys that hit on me are Italian. I don't see anything wrong, though, with Italians only dating Italians. I pretty much only date Black guys. You like what you like.

I think Italians like to stay with Italians! Although lately in a survey , Italian women said they prefer Moroccan and Algerian men to Italian men. Italian men are a little possessive. I think Italians generally need to travel more outside their own country. They are very nice,warm people but some are a little "closed".

This debate will go on for centuries in reference to attraction among ethnicities. As long as you carry yourself with a certain amount of self confidence and dignity, people will find you attractive no matter what color their, or your skin is. It doesn't matter. Taking pride in all cultures is something at which we as Americans and world citizens need to work. My heritage is African (Nigerian), Italian (Sicilian), Scottish, French, and Cherokee Native American. I am proud of them all. I am single, but when I do find love the person's skin pigment won't matter.

the conclusion come to is that some of italian men like us and some prefer there own.BUT to answer the question yes they do .But they cant face up to it because there parents well say no that's why .I for one stick to my own race and when i mean race im say true blooded dark african that what's how i like it .So when my children come out they will have mixed blood in them.That is what i wish for beacause i my self diffently have some mixed brazilian in me but it dies not show apart from my hair which is very very staight no so nappy at all very soft.

This is about two things that NO ONE here can define, b/c there is no cut & dry answer, that is preference and attraction. There is no general explanation for it. One Italian might be in love with women of other ethnicities while another may only find himself attracted to women in his own culture. There are just too many factors that go in to why we like what we like... As a Black woman, I think Italian men are some of thee most attractive & sexy men , however~ I EXCLUSIVELY date Black men as a matter of pride and respect to myself and family... As a sidebar, my bestfriend who is Italian {Neopolitan} ONLY dates Black men and she gets so much hype from her parents, I tell her it really isn't worth it to upset your family like that. But she is attracted to what she is attracted to so whaddayagonnado??

It's amazing how colorless, white people think that they are the know all on what is attractive and what is not. These COLORLESS people who originated from the disease known as LEPROSY in biblical times ... that is when a person becomes as white as snow with white hair and blue eyes ... think that unless a person has NO COLOR in their skin, they are not hot. Why then, do COLORLESS people (also descended from ancient ALBINOS in the african race and were unfortunately run up into the moutainous terrain of europe to be isolated because of it - hence the white race began)spend so much tine risking cancer by baking in the sun to be darker yet they call anyone with darker skin names. Could it be because in ancient times whites were considered untouchable and barbaric by the Romans and Northern Africa???? Listen assholes .... these days few people want to go out with a white person who hasn't got a tan cos its unsightly. LEARN THAT.

You can't generalize a whole race of people! There are over 200 million Italians in the world! So unless you know 200 million italians and ALL of them hate blacks, you can't say that! There are people in every race that are open minded or ignorant!

WE still aren't 200 millions in the world.
Not all of us hate blacks, not at all.

i think you're thinking of Black men, "fooki."
they LOVE Caucasian women.

besides who cares? although i'm sure it doesn't happen much in italy, interracial relationships are something that's been happening for a while. i prefer finding someone i love rather than "preserving" my culture. I will still have pride in my culture whether i marry outside my race or not.

think about what you say a little more.

okay;; yea u most definitely sound racist. im italian *sicilian* n im also a mix of everything && ppl tht r light dont only lay out in the sun to be tanned bc of history or bc they wanna be a different culture THEY DO IT BECAUSE MAYBE THEY THINK THEY LOOK BETTER THAT WAY n its not insecurity so dont even go there...some people like being darker n like gettin lighter hair in the summer etc....so before u come at every race thinking that ur the shyt w/ all of ur so called "facts" *tht dont mean anything* check urself bc u'd get offended if someone was saying rude shyt about ur culture u wudn't be too happy. && now tht i think about it its not worth it starting an argument with such an ignorant, prejudgice, and clueless individual. keep in mind that people are going to like who they are going to like, and no matter what cultural beliefs you have it depends on how willing you are to break them depending on how serious you are about the person.

Well Fooki. I completely understand where you are coming from.....except when you make your point about black people.
where the helll are you from??? you are probably some black person that can't get any action cuz no other black person wants you. Or some other person of another nationality that needs to shut the fuck up. The fact of the matter is that if people want to be open-minded let them.
Trust me, I have every right to say what I'm saying right now. I am a black woman from a city where you always see a black man with a white woman. I could easily get angry, and agree with what you are saying. But don't you think it's a little racist to generalize black people and say that they can't preserve their culture. Think about it. America is a melting pot of cultures, people are bound to mix, not just black people, but whites and everyone else. If you think about it, in America there are a lot of whites and asian mixes. So what!!??! I understand that people have their prefrences and their traditions but some people like to expand their boundaries which you, fooki, i feel like you don't do very often. maybe you should try it. maybe you will see that you are not intentionally trying to lose your culture but falling in love for the sake of falling in love with the person you are truly in love with regardless of traditions and race.
just a little reality check for you and others that have a problem with black americans being attracted to other races.
