@Allie8_79  “…some Black men’s strategy is to talk Black women down to their non-Black friends and generally discourage IRR between BW and non-BM so that they can keep BW for themselves all the while dating out for as long as they can…”
“Oh yeah. There was a young Black woman I liked during high school [mid-70s], and I was good friends with her [male] cousin. I figured, “hey he can put in a good word for me, ensure her folks that I am a straight up guy and come from a good family, etc” As I learned much later, what a mistake. He told me that “she’s just that friendly with everyone so don’t read too much into that. And, I know she’s only interested in Black men because she told me.” What he said was pretty convincing, so I moved on. Fast forward three decades, and at a reunion…the first time we had seen each other since high school. We picked up like it was yesterday. We both wanted to talk about how we felt about each other. I told her how I had felt about her, and she asked why I didn’t pursue her. I told her what her cousin had told me. She was really mad at her cousin [who had died 2 years  earlier], because none of what he told me was true. She said even her dad [no-nonsense US Navy man] liked me, which would have been half the battle. Since we were both there with our spouses, we couldn’t just run out of there, but we thought about it (LOL j/k) I did get to meet her husband, a really nice Cuban guy. So at least she did all right in the relationship department [and he’s probably a better dancer than me too!]”
