"No, I have never dated outside of my race.  I have never dated a dog, or cat, just members of the human race.  The color or culture of the person is secondary to me."

Antonio Manigault

"I have not dated outside of my race. I prefer to date people within my race mainly because I can relate to the person that I am dating.  I rather keep my culture strong, and really that's it." 

Val Jackson

"No, I have never dated outside of my race. I prefer African-American men.  I know love has no color, so if I met someone who sparks my interest, I might date outside of my race, but I try to stay within my own race because our black men need us more than men of other races."


Yes, I will date outside of my race because I don't care about a person's race.  I have no one type of man.  I can appreciate any men who come at me right."

Charles Neal

"I have not dated outside of my race.  I prefer to date black women.  They are queens, great women and wonderful companions.  There is nothing like a sister!" 

Tina E.

"Yes, I have dated outside of my race. I find it more educational to date outside your race.   You can't say that you will find your love or soul mate in any one race. You might find that in a different race, an Asian, Mexican, or somebody. Love has no race, no colors."

Yes I have dated from many cultures and from poor to very rich. Criminal to high executive. My Grandmother once said to me, "You're like the UN, you date everyone!" I am very proud to experience the many cultures and life styles. And mostly proud of my black husband whom I have had the privilege of being married to for 27 years. And I am white.
