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.
I had no good reason why white guys were off my romantic radar.
Men who have protected and supported me through some of the darkest days of my life. I might even spend an evening charming some former frat bros at the bar for my personal amusement. It was just there in the back of my mind: I can hang out, work with, live next to and even call white men friends, but I don’t date them. Made me feel a bit hypocritical and narrow-minded, two states I actively work to avoid.
One is named after Nathan Bedford Forrest, a lieutenant general in the Confederate Army. Both are men I would trust to raise and protect my son should the need arise. Or wonder whether Justin Timberlake’s prowess on the dance floor translated into, well, other areas. It was not a hard-and-fast rule, as in: I don’t date white guys.
The music and movie industry did a really good job in making you believe that all black women are like this: What you don’t realize is that there are many black women who would love to date a white or an Asian guy and none of them looks like the woman in the image above. It’s not beautiful, not fair and it’s anything but empowering. If he doesn’t want to change his opinion, you can start a fight to prove how much you love your girlfriend.
No, they are educated woman who are looking for a good guy. She always wanted a boyfriend who sits in the wheelchair. If I wasted my energy arguing with my haters, I would have no energy to write this article.
Since the 1967 US Supreme Court decision that fully legalised interracial marriage in all the states, this practice has not witnessed as much of such cases as since 2000, according to statistics.
