As the United States grows more diverse, interracial couples of color will only grow more common.

They don’t have a pattern of choosing solely white mates or solely Asian mates or Hispanic ones.Interracial couples consisting of two people who belong to racial minority groups are largely overlooked in the mainstream culture.This is likely because discussions of race in general still are based on a black-white paradigm.Singer Rihanna, journalist Lisa Ling and actor Eddie Murphy are all examples of people who've dated both within and outside of their racial group.

If you don’t know the dating history of a person in an interracial relationship, don’t assume that they have no interest in dating members of their own race.

It’s a common belief that people of color in interracial relationships, especially with whites, date down rather than up.
