I do. I am a African American female and I would date a man from another race. There isn't that much difference to me. i worked in the entertainment business for many years and came across many different races and nationalities. Most men appreciate a beautiful woman no matter what the race. Alot of people don't date outside their race only because they are afraid of what people might say. i could care less what others think. If I meet someone who is interesting and attractive to me I am going to go for it. Post your views.

I was just in a debate over some people from my boyfriends work. Two of them made stupid comments "I don't do dark meat". They got mad at how offended my boyfriend and I were by that comment. That is racist and rude! They try to spin it around on me and ask if I would. My response, I don't see color. I've never dated a black man, but I'm not opposed to it. They try to catch me on that. I say I won't date a guy who acts like "Little John" or the "Yin Yang Twins" but then again I won't date a white guy who acts like that either. It's not about race. If someone shares my values, interests, goals etc then I don't care what race they are. I've dated a Korean, Thai, Lebanese, and Mexican. And I have no regrets. And if Mos Def would look at me twice I'd be all over him.

I'm sorry but you can't have Mos Def. He is my future husband. I wouldn't date a man that acted like Lil Jon or the Ying Yang Twins either. But I also would not date Carrottop or Jack Black. If I am attracted to them, I will date them. I happen to think that Russell Crowe and Brad Pritt are fine as hell.

Lol. Yeah, I forgot about carrot top. ick. Is he even human? Jack Black is icky. And eminem... Bubba Sparks... K-Fed. I could list on and on. I'd rather date William Hung than them... at least he does well in school... even if his singing is awful!

Yes I date outside my race. I am a white american and I have dated blacks and mexicans. I also have a daughter by a black man. To me its only a color things. They are no different to me. If I wasnt in a relationship and someone of another race came along I wouldnt hesitate to date them if I was interested.

I agree. Color should not matter. Ignorance is blind and love is color blind.

I was just in Mexico and our tour guide at the Mayan ruins had the most beautiful color skin I've ever seen. His father was Mayan and his mother from Barcelona.

I think it's perfectly fine! What's most important is the person's character, not the race. :)

We both know that's whats important. People just have a hard time getting past the outside then they end up missing whats on the inside.
