Love sees no color or Lust sees no color
"I don't discriminate in who I date casually," says Lamarr, an African American guy. "But I do discriminate in who I date seriously. And I am going to marry a Black woman. Socially and culturally that's who I identify with."
When I came across this statement it kind of answered why there is a discrepancy between attitudes towards interracial dating and actual interracial marriages. College life presents an interracial dating field and people tend to have interracial sex and dates for various reasons. Lust… adventure… name it.
Much as statistics show that successful Black men are four times more likely to be married to women who are not Black than they were thirty years ago, in reality, the actual marriages that occur are actually much fewer than we expect.

What are you looking for?
Going by Lamarr’s sentiments, there seems to be a difference between interracial love and interracial lust. It seems that the person you choose to date casually doesn’t really have to be your ideal mate. Anyway it’s casual right?
So what happens when one is actually out there looking for someone to spend the rest of their lives with? Do people usually have the same sentiments about interracial relationships as they had back in college?
And if one was comfortable dating someone from a different race in college, what influences the change in attitude when looking for THE ONE! Family? Society? Or is it just a choice?
Is this the REAL reason Mariah Carey and James Packer split?
