Mainly black and white. What would you think about the person in the situation? I'm not looking for 'interracial dating is OK in my book!" or "interracial dating is a abomination!". I need to know how you would characterize each person. Include your age and race please.

I know this will be down voted, so here goes. Also, I'm not talking about every single person and every single relationship, but I do think it's a lot of them.
Quite a few of the people that enter interracial relationships, especially the ones you mentioned, have bad things to say about the opposite gender of their own race and sometimes the opposite gender of the race their boyfriend/girlfriend. For instance, some black women might say there aren't any good black men out there for x,y, and z reason. Some white girls might say that black men are more manly and that's why they go for them. Same goes for a lot of the other groups as well. I find it uncalled for and completely unnecessary. Why try to put other people down? People see their relatives and friends that are the same race as that way?
To piggyback off of what I just said, I think a lot of it has to do with lust. They lust after a group and try to give their baseless reasons why. That's probably why I think interracial marriages are less successful than same race marriages on average. I've actually read that black women/white guys relationships are more successful on average. My theory on that is that there aren't nearly as many of them and they aren't thrust together because of purely lust reasons. Neither group has as many positive dating stereotypes as the white woman and black men do. You'd have to be a fool to think that white girls haven't been placed at the top when it comes to beauty. Thus, some non white guys go after them because they are seen as the best and they are a status symbol. As I've mentioned before, black men have the stereotype of being cool and more manly. Girls say they have better bodies, they're more aggressive, big d***, etc. I think that coupling often times gets together because of those stereotypes. There's quite a few times that both sees the other as a piece of meat, as something to have on their arm.
Again, I don't think everyone in interracial relationships are like this. I just think a lot are. Also, I didn't mention other races outside of black and white because that's what the QA asked about. Finally, I expect down votes because I'm not 100% supportive of them. Go for it.
