Before I became engaged, whenever I went out I was constantly approached by Black men, willing to wine and dine me and give me the world.
If Black women are so up in arms about us being with their men, why don’t they look at themselves and make some changes.
I am a White female who is engaged to a Black male who is good-looking, educated and loving.
I just don’t understand a lot of Black female’s attitudes about our relationship.
Yet what may be even worse than the gaggle of troglodytes who collectively co-sign these ignorant ass statements, are the brothers who simply just remain silent.
It’s one thing to affirm yourself squarely in an anti-Black mode predicated in an unflinching self-hatred, but to view Black women as so insignificant that they don’t deserve even the slightest defense is troubling.
It needs to happen because we’re all tired of Black girls having to internalize negativity all the time.
There is no true support for the uplifting of the Black community if we are unable to protect Black girls and women from all threats, whether they arise within our group or not.
Support for interracial dating and marriage has been on the rise for decades, and Millennials are particularly accepting: 88 percent of those surveyed by Fusion last year said they were open to dating outside their race.
But the reality is that only 54 percent said they had actually done so.
But the reason it appears that far too many Black men are “jealous” (in those brothers’ words) of non-Black women is due to the fact that it’s incredibly difficult for many Black men to propagate their preferences without slandering all Black women.
Just like Trick Daddy ranting about wanting to smash “these Spanish and these white hoes,” it always predictably boils down to an anti-Black women sentiment.
Black women are here to be our partners and in many ways—from employment to education to entrepreneurship—they are outshining us.
