Cities with the most interracial dating
“The high interest in interracial dating might be a surprise because of a perceived disapproval of interracial relationships in the Deep South where racial tensions seem deeply ingrained in the psyche and culture of the people who live there,” says Christelyn D.
Karazin recently appeared on CNN’s “HLN Weekend Express with Natasha Curry ” discussing historically “swirl-friendly” areas most accepting of interracial couples.
Predictably, these places were along typically liberal coastal cities like Los Angeles , New York , and Seattle with pockets of swirl-friendly places in the Midwest and the western portion of Texas.
States like Texas , Georgia , Tennessee , Alabama , South Carolina , Louisiana and Indiana historically vote Republican and tend to be socially conservative–not exactly fertile ground for people openly and un-apologetically stating their non-conformist dating preferences.
Most of these states vehemently opposed interracial marriage during the riotous Civil Rights era, with Alabama , the last holdout, formally legalizing it as late as the year 2000.
That goes for both the older ones already into their careers and the younger ones still in college too.
