It also could just be that black men appreciate women who don’t have a certain body type.If the argument is that overweight white women go after black men because they can’t get with white men, this demeans black men by insinuating that they are not as desirable as white men.I’ll start off by saying that I don’t intend for this article to speak for all white women/men or all black men/women.
Interracial marriages were only legalized in the United States 50 years ago, which means that when a black man and white woman walk down the street holding hands in certain parts of the country, they are still going to get glared at.
I had another white guy tell me that interracial sex is bestiality and that interracial marriage is against the Bible (in 2017! ) Sure, it’s fun to piss redneck, Confederate flag waving, Fox News watching racists off, but dating is too much effort for that to be the only perk.
I’ve always been a "Daddy’s Girl" and I would never intentionally date a specific race in an attempt to “lash out” at either of my parents.
While it’s true that a woman is more likely to date and marry someone who looks similar to her father, it’s also true that she’ll choose a life partner who shares the same qualities as her father.
These are just some observations I’ve made and they obviously do not apply to every interracial dating situation.
I always knew that race was a problem in America, but I didn’t (and still don’t fully) realize the intricacies of it and how deeply it extends to dating culture.
Just because society has identified whiteness as some sort of marker of success doesn’t mean that white women view themselves as an “upgrade” for black men.
No, we are not all just trying to see if the rumors about black men are true; there are websites for that.
This is new territory for me, but I think it speaks volumes that I’ve already discovered that it comes with certain stereotypes attached.
These are some of the stereotypes I’ve witnessed, along with things people have actually said to me, or things I’ve read online.
By the time you factor in the married men, fathers, or the elderly, you have a pool of black men less than the size of New York City spread out over 50 states.
