First off, I am black, and below you will find my viewpoints:
-Love has no color. If you want to date someone of a different race, that is totally fine!
However, you have to ask yourself, is it for the right reasons? In the black community, there is a lot of self-hatred, for example. A lot of black people are starting to date interacially, because they want to produce non-black babies or they have given up on the opposite gender. See the following videos for examples of what I mean:
And then, on TV, they are glorifying interacial couples, so it makes them seem much more appealing than dating within your race.
If you are dating outside your race because you have "given up" on your race or you want your babies to look "beautiful", then you are WRONG, and I don't support that.
Now, if you date interacially because you just randomly met someone who is of a different race and you fell for them, I totally support that.
Personally, I don't really date interacially. I tried it. I'm not against it. I would totally do it again. Yet, I want to date someone who has similar tastes to me.
Most women of other races don't understand what it means to be black, or they don't understand black music, or black TV shows, or black culture. So, when I try to talk to them about it, there is a disconnect there. I want to date someone who understands those kinds of things and gets what I'm talking about.
Now, don't get me wrong - I have dated interacially and met women who get the black culture and it makes it easier to talk to them, but not all do. The only type of person who would understand what it means to be black is a black woman. It is for that reason I prefer black women, but I am still open to dating other races.2
