Interracial Weirdness *not a bash*

Does anyone find it weird that interracial couples are usually overwhelmingly skewed to one gender?

Like for example, there are LOTS of caucasian men with asian wives/girlfriends, but I almost never see caucasian women with asian SO's.

Black men/white women is common, but black women/white men is uncommon. Same with asian women and black men. No black women with asian men.

East Indians are the only ones I know who go both ways interracially. Indian men, not uncommon to be with caucasian or east asian women, not uncommon for Indian women to be with white men either.

There will always be exceptions, I'm not saying it NEVER happens. But notable examples to the contrary don't disprove an overall trend.

I don't get it.

I wouldn't disagree that this is generally true, nope. Certainly seems to be.

I do have a friend whose parents are white dad / black mom, though.

A good friend of mine is married to an Asian, she's white, well actually part native, but pretty much white. I also have a black friend who is obsessed with white men, she refuses to date her own race. While those do tend to be the norms, there are people who defy them.

That's why I said "examples to the contrary don't disprove an overall trend."
