Do Indian women feel there is a negative stigma associated with all black men?
They will be very open, if they don't have to deal with the crap they have to put up with their family.
Unfortunately it seems that the majority of them want nothing to do with black men. I also rarely ever see this relationship combination in the real world either.
It doesn't bother me much, but I'm wondering if there's a culture issue?
The women themselves are not offenders, they just cannot sell a black man to the bigots back home.
Well there are indian women (indian descendents with similar culture) from trinidad and tobago, guyana (basicly central america), and other places in africa and mauritius who are more comfortable with black people since those countries are ethnically half black and half indian.

I'm sure I don't need to go into detail about the rigid caste system in that country, but if you think someone from a presumed "higher" social standing is going to marry the presumed "bottom feeders" and "untouchables", then you can forget about it.
Indians with roots in Africa and the Caribbean are a whole different fiasco though, and the majority of BMIW couples that I know of (around 5 or so) involve Indian women with roots outside of India.
I had just told her about the budding flirtation with a boy from Memphis who lived across the grassy quad. One girl in the room decided to turn the group’s attention to my facial features and how un-Indian they were: the tip of my nose was a little rounder than my sister’s; my lips were full, fat, and sat prominently on my face.
I would spy him coming back from class and get the jitters. Everyone turned to do their own individual nitpicking before agreeing that, yes, Chaya does look a little weird. Sometimes people looked “less Indian” than other people. But the others seemed to understand something about the final comment that I missed.
They don't believe so much in just dating which is what modern people like to do.
