    It's not just celebrities. People in general are dating out of their race as society becomes more tolerant and open minded.

    While I agree with Mr. King that it is better than urban people being at each others throats it's also an obvious side effect of feminism and patriarchal theory. You see a lot of White males with Asian females, Urban males with White females, and increasing number of Urban women with White men. The loser in all this seems to be Asian male in Western regions. Patriarchy theory has fomented comtempt among same race heterosexual counterparts.

    Who cares why? Imma go out on a limb and say, BECAUSE THEY LOVE EACH OTHER. Shocking, eh?

    I think you care too much about race. That's quite a big list. I don't know what's worse, compiling such an extensive list yourself, or knowing that there are websites out there, from which you lifted this list, that keep tabs on interracial couples. Either way, you care too much.

    That's a good thing. Since it ain't no black men out here that can satisfy em they should try another type and leave black men to do the same. I only have a problem with Black people talking down on each other or anybody else for that matter.

    Well, I mean, it couldn't POSSIBLY have anything to do with the fact that these couples might just actually love each other, could it? Despite the differences in skin tones? /sarcasm

    1. It's 2010 not 1863

    2. You have WAY too much time on your hands

    As a black woman myself, I've always been attracted to white men. My ex is a white guy from London and we have a beautiful daughter together. Even though he still lives In London, we are best friends and he is an amazing father!

    I'm also glad that more black women are finally exercising and exploring their options when it comes to dating and marriage.

    Who cares!!!!!! Just because someone is black they have to date/marry black people??? I dont think so. Its a free world people can marry whoever the hell they want to marry. Skin color shouldnt matter. Its all about who the person is and how they treat/feel about you. There is a lot more to relationships than skin color. I date interracially myself and see nothing wrong with it. This isnt 1950!

    I'm glad they feel free to date whoever they wish to date. Society used to be very hard on those couples, I am glad that's changed. People can become more openminded!
