I’m still going for what I want

“I’m a European, from a pretty mono-racial society. Came to the States and found myself especially attracted to Black ladies. Initially I was pretty ignorant about all the controversies even though I thought I knew the history… That blissful ignorance is long gone. ūüôā Being much more aware now I’m still going for what I want. Don’t care what anybody says and I’m ready to stand up for myself (and her) when challenged. Peace to you all and respect to all who run after what they want whatever the obstacles!”

When a White guy thinks about asking Black women out

“I’m a White guy from Saskatchewan, I have a couple of questions for you, and info that I hope is useful that you can use for your book.
1. Are African American women attracted to Canadian White guys?
2. (I’m not a hair puller) Why do Black women always assume that?
I can confirm that what you said about us being afraid is true. As a White guy, convincing yourself that you are good enough for Black women is a really hard thing to do. We have to prove to ourselves to be 0% Confederate, all of our blood lines have to be out of the South from 1619 to 1865. We have to be at least 5’10 tall, our body fat level has to be 15% or less, no crooked, dead or missing teeth. Have a good job or be rich and we have to be good looking.
Black lades: When a White guy thinks about asking you out his mind always goes into overdrive and he imagines every single negative reaction you could possibly have, from ‚ÄúNo!‚ÄĚ to ‚ÄúHell No I’m not dating a White boy!‚ÄĚ in one of these you take a knife out of your handbag and he loses everything from the neck up. One example of this is when I went to Washington D.C. for my 3rd trip to America. (I tolled myself that I had my fear under control) While I was at the Martin Luther King Memorial an African American grabbed my attention, when I tried to approach her my entire body froze up and I could not move.”
