K., British whites are much less likely to have a partner of a different race.According to the latest census data, only 4 percent of British whites have settled down with someone outside their racial background.we didn't ask further, it was a bad time for him, yes it was 30 odd years ago.
Roughly one in 10 cohabiting couples in England and Wales involve two people of different ethnicities.
That’s a 35 percent increase from the last time the British census was conducted, in 2001. census differentiates between "British whites," "Irish whites" and "other whites" (mainly referring to whites from Eastern Europe).
If that event existed, it was likely more complex than explained.
Honour killings aren't endemic to any black culture that I am aware of and outside that are extremely rare. Thats 30 years ago where 'race relations' in Britain were significantly different and have little baring on what goes on today in London.

This is mainly due to a sense of community rather than general disapproval as Londoners as a whole are 'progressive minded' and liberal and Brits in general regard it as impolite to 'get involved' in another's private life and their choices unless they are friends or relatives.
Good to see that other people on this forum realise that not all environments are conducive for interracial couples.
If an interracial couple gets any attention, its due to curiosity of the dynamic of the relationship - whether it is genuine (a pretty black girl with an older ugly white man) or a young black man with an older white woman.
The issues I mentioned above, relating to possible abuse i.e a black woman with what appears to be a culturally insular white man, will raise eyebrows certainly.
