    Personally, I have noticed that being someone of a different race will help you get noticed faster and remembered more easily. I have approached and closed women of many races and I think that once you don't fit the "typical insert race" stereotype and she see's you as an individual you have already won on one front. Your follow up and close will determine the next course. However if the attraction isn't there then, you have at least made her consider you as a person and not as a member of a race or ethnic group.

    Is race a factor? No. Do some people blindly judge others? Yes. Should you care? We have one life and everyday we get older so why care?

    This topic is no different than: someone who is considered short, or who is overweight by western society standards, or who doesnt possess wealth, or who doesnt have that facial features to match the prince in Cinderella.

    Dont let that destroy your game. Keep in mind that they are missing out on something good, not you are missing out on something.

    I think that if you go into an approach thinking about race being a problem, it might crush your confidence.

    Race of PUA

    I think it's only as much a factor as anything. Some girls fall head over heels for tall guys, short guys, black guys, white guys, spanish guys, Asian guys, Middle-Eastern guys, guys in red shirts, guys with braces - every girl has a type; race is no more or less a factor of "type" than any other thing - less for some girls, more for others - varies randomly.

    I have noticed generally more success when approaching people of a different race. Sets (or individuals) of different race than me tend to be slightly more receptive than sets of my own race.

    It's like they think "hey here comes a [insert race] guy! He seems friendly. Let's see if he's [crazy, funny, awesome, magical - whatever positive stereo-type may apply].

    Approaching a set with positive energy and they will assume the positive stero-types of your race are true of you. Then you can build on that - compare and contrast with the stereotype throughout your game.

    Race of HB

    As far as the race of your traget - nationality is a bigger factor. Though there are often slight differences between racial cultures within a single nation, the similarities and differences seem to be drawn more along national lines.

    As someone who actually takes in race as a factor I think I can offer some advice to people who are nervous of race factoring in.

    I don't try and open or hit on girls of another race to begin with.

    When I get approached or hit on by someone of a different race I try not to show interest while still trying to be friendly.

    There is no animosity towards this, I don't hate girls because they are of a different race, and likewise girls who oppose it aren't going to hate you for being a different race. Look at the situation, if she is showing no indicators of interest then move on/change target.

    If they explicitly tell you they aren't interested in you because of your race don't get offended and just be cool with it and say something along the lines of "different strokes for different folks". You'd seem like an understanding guy and might get the opportunity to target a friend who is more into that kind of thing. However if she's a bitch about it then forget about her and move on. .

    It comes down to what people find attractive and people are most likely to be attracted to people from their own cultural/racial background.

    For example, most of the girls that I have been with have been caucasian but thats just my personal preference of what I find most attractive, its like going for brunettes over blondes.

    So long story short, race is a factor but its not a dealbreaker. At least for me anyway.

    I dont think you should worry about it but realize it may be a factor if your trying to game a girl who isnt co operating lol.

    What i mean is that you may get to game a girl pretty well and after knowing her awhile u get friendzoned. You might have gamed well but maybe she doesn't like guys of your race other than a friend.

    I knew a hispanic HB9. We got along fine. She seemed cool with me. But she wouldnt let me pursue like i wanted. I worried about my game but saw that i was doing the right things. So it was frustrating. Eventually, one day she pulls up her FB to show me something and i notice that all her guy "friends" are tall, black or dark skinned hispanic guys. Almost all of them had the same physical builds. She had no BF at the time but i kinda got the point. Btw im not a large african american lol. Anyway, i stopped gaming her hard and its been better not worrying about her...jus keeping her as a friend.

    So just keep it mind that girls do have preferences which may come into play eventually, but since u dont know what they are, u should never let it stop you from approaching.
    Between men and women there is no friendship possible. There is passion, enmity, worship, love, but no friendship.

    I, also being African American in a predominantly caucasion and hispanic city, wouldn't worry so much about race, but instead, religion. That keeps people apart much more than race. I speak based on multiple personal experiences with people who couldn't accept me because my level of spirituality didn't meet or match the expectations of the other person.

    What's very interesting is I never really think about race when approaching people who are outside of my race. I just see (most) girls as human beings and feel like I have a shot with any girl I approach in person. The only time it starts to get into my mind is if I notice their culture is completely different than mine or they start showing me a bunch of things to symbolize that they have a culture that's apparently completely different than mine. Then that's when I start questioning what I might look like to them. If they're Russian or Italian or some other culture of that nature, I sometimes begin to feel like I may come across as "too african" or something like that since my dad is Ghanian, I got most of my looks from him, and he gave me a Ghanian name. But then again, I approached, met, and started a conversation with a caucasion girl at my school who has a Ghanian boyfriend and she knows things about the Ghanian culture that I didn't even think anyone at the school would know. She even knew the meanings of the Ghanian names (and her boyfriend had a straight up Ghanian name as well).





    SO, if her boyfriend can do it, then I can, too.

    I just wonder how his texting game is.
