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.
In my eight years of dating white men, I’ve had equally good and bad experiences, but there was not one single event that made me decide that I’m no longer into white men.
Sometimes people just get bored of dating the same race and want to explore, especially if they grew up in a town that was predominantly one race.
Dating outside of my race has opened my eyes to how much work we still have to do as a society to combat racism, both blatant and masked.
Marriage has been a declining institution among all Americans and this decline is even more evident in the Black community.
This doesn’t mean that white girls who date black guys think that they’re above black women.
This is not to say that white privilege doesn’t exist, it just means that white women don’t think they can automatically get a black guy just by virtue of being white.
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.So perhaps color doesn’t matter in this case, as long as a woman can find someone who treats her well.
