    While I’ve noticed it changing slowly recently, why are the overwhelming number of mixed couples (black/white variety) black male/white female? This has puzzled me for some years now. I can’t believe that most people are buying into the obvious stereotype about endowment. By now, I would think people realize that difference is less than advertised. But, if women ARE buying into stereotypes, why not the one that white men are better providers? I’m not black or white–nor is my wife–so its really just a curious phenomenon.

    I think fat blonds enjoy attention from perhaps a better black man than what she can attract in a white guy. I think black women are seen as too confrontational, usually too heavy-set and not feminine enough for white guys.

    I’m black and my husband is white. Neither of us were seeking out a particular race. I’m not heavy-set or confrontational, for the record. We’re just two people who are bound together for life and share similar interests: water sports, classic rock, and comedy films among other things. I know what you mean about buying into the stereotype, and unfortunately, people have had really ignorant questions and comments for us. He’s been asked what color my genitals are. I’ve been asked about his “size”. It’s ridiculous! We don’t even think about the fact that we don’t “match” until some dumb waiter asks us if the check is “separate or together” or if we get crazy stares while we’re out in public with our baby.
