Dating white men vs black men
She was a chatty and congenial Aussie, with a distinctive no-bullshit edge. And a number of biracial celebrities — including Alicia Keys, Drake, Halle Berry, and Wentworth Miller — were born to white mothers and black fathers.Most importantly on a Friday night, she was a straight woman in gay bar who wasn’t playing the I’m-such-a-fabulous-fag-hag card while taking up way more space than necessary. I have a theory about white women and black men, and it goes a little something like this.Clearly I was first and foremost a black man to her… She probably wouldn’t have been having the conversation with a straight black guy either.As pick-up talk goes, it wasn’t even remotely promising. Maybe she wanted me to know that she had done well. She had absolutely no ulterior motive and no shot with me. I hate any kind of exclusive or discriminatory thinking when it comes to race and sex, even when it works in my favor. But in reality as well as on TV and in movies, the highest-profile interracial couples have been white women with black men. She must have read my mind when she made the disclaimer about finding white men attractive, too. She was a “chocolate queen,” but she was open to other flavors. But from a distance, I’ve noticed that when a straight white woman dates a straight black guy, it’s less likely to be part of a pattern, her were TV’s first interracial married couple, and they were played by Franklin Cover, a white actor, and Roxie Roker, a black actress who was also married to a white man offscreen (TV producer Sy Kravitz, rocker Lenny’s dad).
She pulled out her phone and began clicking through photos. She showed me a succession of recent pictures of her then-40ish first-timer posing outside shirtless because, well, why not? And her high praise included black women — that underdog demo that, Beyoncé aside, is often overlooked by whites with a down-with-blacks sexual agenda. I can’t recall ever previously having had a conversation with a white woman who dates black men about dating black men. The men are just hotter.” She sounded almost apologetic, which meant she’d spent some time thinking not only about her proclivity for black people but also about how it must come across to them.In other words, once they “go black,” they’re probably more inclined to go back.
I have no scientific evidence to back this up; it’s just a theory. Meanwhile, I’ve found that with gay white men who date black men, it tends to be more of a trend. I once presented this idea to a friend (a white guy who dates black men exclusively), and he had an intriguing response.
The day’s conversation while shopping and preparing let us become closer to one another than we had in years.
