Black women feel black men dating white women
White woman are seen as more beautiful because of Eurocentric beauty standards that black women and other women of color cannot live up to.This is not that case for all black men who date outside of their race though.He was wearing a professional outfit, leather dress shoes and a brown wool houndstooth coat with the collar popped. However, as I strolled past this man’s cart full of baby wipes, pullup diapers, fresh fruit and his own box of Rice Krispies, I felt an immense amount of guilt.I am a black woman who has never dated a black man, and most days I don’t think twice about that.
What if we started thinking of solutions, instead of just the problems?The welfare of certain segments of our community will always provoke an emotional response from me—people of color, women, children, the elderly—but for the most part, I consider myself to be a fairly chilled spirit.In fact, 99% of the time I am completely unbothered.But sometimes, like when I encounter a well-dressed family man with a mutual love for certain breakfast cereals, I wonder if I am failing my people.After all, 50 years ago in many states it was still illegal for us to marry anyone who was not also black. Although race relations are still far from perfect, I acknowledge the steps toward inclusion that we’ve made.
