For example, I notice that black artists are always teamed with other black 'love interests' in music videos, and white nearly always teamed with white.
I have also noticed that when I read Traci Bingham's bio (the first black woman to feature on Baywatch the TV show), it was mentioned that 'she prefers white men'. Also, for example, why was there any need for that bizarre and stupid film Ashton Kutcher did about dating a black woman.
It made me wonder why there was any need to state that, and if people do mostly make assumptions that people don't /shouldn't date interacially - especially in the USA?
Please my response to @ladsin if you want further clarification on the nature of my question.

I wasn't sure exactly what you are asking but will try and explain to the best of my ability.
1.) All over the world it is slightly "abnormal" to date people of other races. Just because of nature. Only recently has it become really an ability (with people being able to travel all over.)
That being said I do not think anything is wrong with it but that is just my observation.
2.) In the music section. No, music is loved by all people and breaches all racial and social boundaries (for the most part except for extreme racists). Simply look at bob marley/ other reggae bands which are predominantly black. Also young white Americans tend to associate/ act more like black males (listening to music, acting "thug" etc.)
This is not to say that all black males are thug but that is simply how rap (predominantly black) music portrays them and white kids are emulating this (idk why perhaps because it is edgey)
3.) Is this just America or all over? I believe a bit of both. America still has fairly traditional/ Christian values when it comes to sex and relationships. These are outdated and antiquated but do tend to look more sternly on interracial couples. This branch of "morality" is slowly being phased out as these older values are becoming less common. On the flip side I don't believe this is strictly American, rather it is just more easily seen because our "culture" seems to be more widespread and the news tends to polarize everything, therefore the ideas of a few (racism etc) begin to look like the ideals of everyone.0
