I'm curious about people's point of view. I'm a young African American lady & I don't think race is a huge problem for me. But how do you guys feel?

Sure. Race doesn't really matter to me--although, I do have racial preferences. People tend to date inside their race, largely. It's just more comfortable and 'known'; while they'll date outside their race, they most often date inside their race: except with black people, according to some okcupid stats: black guys tend to go for Hispanic chicks more often than not. The same applies for someone who grew up around a specific culture that isn't the culture of their own race--they'll be more comfortable with the culture they grew up with.
My cousin's are half Mexican, so I've always had a Mexican uncle. He's kinda a douche, or was, at least, but that was natural to me when I was growing up.
But Hispanic chicks are hot. I've dated several, and an amazingly hot Puerto Rican. More like American-Hispanic, so there wasn't a culture gap. With people from different cultures, I think it's a more difficult thing. Each has to be interested in the other's culture, or one has to be willing to adopt the other's culture.
But, race isn't too big of a deal. I'm more attracted, generally, to some over others; but it's not always true.0

My opinion may be slightly biased because I currently date a guy outside of my race. I am African American and he is nicaraguan (hispanic). we've been dating four years and its interesting dating someone outside my race. It is difficult to bond with his family because I do not know Spanish (im trying to learn now) and they prefer to speak Spanish. It is also a little uncomfortable the way his Spanish friends make fun of him for dating a black girl occasionally. But so far so good I'd say, I don't see race as an issue0
