Desis dating black.

I read your article on the prevalence of interracial dating and marriage between Asian women and Black men ("Black Men, Asian Women," in the Spring issue). I will confine my comments to South Asian women (India, Pakistan, Bangladesh). I am seeing such couples more and more, both in England where I live, and New York, where I often come on business.

Frankly, I think this is a disaster for desis. I think Indian girls are dating Black guys primarily for two reasons: to piss off their parents and because Black hip-hop culture now dominates. From what I have seen, Black men view Indian girls as "substitutes" for white girls (who are really their first choice). I hope this phenomenon ends and quickly.
