I saw many mixed couples that consisted of white men and black women--just the opposite! I did see white women with black men as well, but the white guy, black girl combination really stood out. This combo is not nearly as common in the US. The large number of interracial couples I saw in the relatively short time I visited, leads me to believe that this is fairly common place in London. I wish I could have taken pictures to show you guys, but the people probably would have though I was crazy!
Of course, this is in London and folks in cities tend to be more liberal and open minded, but it was still more prevalent than anything I've seen in any US city I've visited. I was at Buckingham Palace and wandered to a park across the street. The entrance to this park is the photo above (awesome, isn't it?) While there, I saw this couple. She's Asian and he's black. I just couldn't resist taking their picture. They were good sports about it and were so caught up with each other, they could have cared less.
If you have any thoughts about this, please share. Have a good weekend!
