A former Wall Street analyst who wrote a book about dating men of other races has sparked a major debate about political correctness.
J.C. Davies examines the myths about interracial lovers in I Got The Fever: Love, What's Race Gotta Do With It?
She told MailOnline how 20 years' experience dating in Manhattan, and hundreds of interviews informed her research, which she says reveals fascinating insight into cultural differences.

Her book claims that Latino men are macho and possessive, Asians are rubbish between the sheets and black men don't like talking about Al Sharpton.
The guide has a different section for each race, with titles including: 'Salsa Fever', 'Yellow Fever' and 'Jungle Fever'.
Ms Davies, 42, calls on her own dating past, which has - by chance rather than design - included men of different racial and cultural backgrounds.
'My first black boyfriend, he was a Republican, and I guess most people, because he was so corporate and wore a suit, would say he was an Oreo,' she revealed.
She also discusses her current boyfriend, who is Iranian-Jewish, describing his expression in bed as 'terrorist face.'
She told the New York Post: 'No one has the balls to write about sex and culture in a real way. You have to make it super PC and be the professor of blah-de-blah and have charts and graphs.'

'The expectation is [black men] are great in the sack and have huge equipment - don't people really wanna know? Is the equipment super-sized? Let's go ask some people.'
And, she reveals, the results were surprising.
She was shocked to find that the majority of Latino men were macho and possessive, given that her ex-husband was the 'sweetest, most un-macho guy on the planet.'
She also references a survey by online dating site OK Cupid, which showed that an interest in music and dancing was an important asset for Latinos.
She found that for the most part, Jewish men were not cheap, and black men were interested in basketball.
She was more surprised by some of the results relating to Asian men. She found that they have a tendency to be materialistic.
'Some Asians insist that buying nice things is considered an ‘investment,’ but most admit it’s more for bragging rights or status,' she writes.
She explained that the book had the potential to be a new dating bible, and hopes that it will follow the success of The Rules and He's Just Not That Into You.
'A lot of this books are all: "You're a pathetic doormat and you need to change yourself" - mine is empowering.
Controversial: Ms Davies describes her first black boyfriend, a Republican, as 'an Oreo'
'This book allows you to pick and choose whoever you like.'
Ms Davies began writing the book after she was laid off by Goldman Sachs last October and faced losing her apartment.
She told how a friend first suggested a career change, and write about dating black guys. She deemed the idea 'done to death', but the idea blossomed into one she felt was original - if controversial.
But she admitted that the response had been mixed, and she had even been branded a racist - though she is anything but.
Of those that criticise her for grouping her subjects in terms of race and culture, she said: 'I think that is so wrong - what we've done in the U.S. in particular.
'Anything that comes up about race, we can't talk about.
'I don't think multiculturalism has failed, but we are so PC in the media that if someone of another culture does something, then you feel bad saying anything about it.
'Outside the U.S. people are more curious and less judgemental.
She said that her research had not resulted in a preference for a particular type of man.
She said: 'A lot of people do have a race preference - I don't think there's anything wrong with that.
'If you'd asked me 10 years ago, I probably would have done. Now... you don't know where your soulmate is going to come from.
'My guy right now looks like a white guy, but he's from Iran.'
She added that her boyfriend was not offended by her 'terrorist' remark.
'My current boyfriend has been super-supportive - he's just a wonderful person.
Her former boyfriends were also full of enthusiasm for the book. She revealed: 'One is so excited that's he's in it - another is upset that he's not.'
