White guys dating black women usa
We are praised for our assests by the black men who love us. In the white community this has been the complete opposite. This is naturally engrained in both African American and Caucasian people’s subconscious.It has been known that the bigger the backside the better. Many studies show that black men prefer woman with curves and white men prefer women who are thin.
I recently did a survey on a group of black women regarding their reasons for not dating men who are not of color.The couple divorced in 1988, and nine years later, De Niro married African-American actress and singer Grace Hightower.A new generation of famous interracial couples are popping up in the entertainment industry and even collaborating professionally.All seem no more or less happy than other couples I know.I had no good reason why white guys were off my romantic radar.Men of character, wit and charisma, alongside whom I have spent some of the best times of my life. East and South Asians, Persians, Arabs, Native Americans, Polynesians — all options as far as I was concerned. Then came the night my girlfriend jokingly called me a racist after I rejected a list of possible options, including her brilliant and cute brother, because they just were “not my type,” my longtime code for “melanin-deficient.” We laughed about it. I pride myself on being open and accepting people at face value, yet, consciously or not, I was writing off millions of single and potentially interesting American men simply because they were white.
Yet, until recently, I did not consider white men as romantic prospects. Meanwhile, my social circle is full of black women married to or dating white men.
Though racial microaggressions are felt by every marginalized group within the dating realm, I am building upon my own personal experiences with heterosexual, cisgender white men to offer suggestions on how to ease racial tensions that may arise in a white man/black woman pairing.
Once, I was at a bar with friends when two white men approached me.
We ended up hitting it off, but it wasn’t until our first date that I realized I had underestimated the wingman’s abilities.
The guy did, in fact, have some kind of black girl fetish.
From Oscar-winning actors, to rock and roll icons, and even up-and-coming stars, there are several notable white men married to black women in Hollywood.
