There are more of us

I just see her as a woman

“I’m a White guy. I’m married to a Black woman. We’ve been married almost 10 years. For me, race isn’t important. I don’t see my wife as a Black woman; I just see her as a woman – my woman. I really don’t think about it and neither does she. It doesn’t occur to us that we’re still outside the mainstream or not a “normal” couple. We really don’t think about being an interracial couple until someone brings it to our attention, then I look at her and think “oh yeah, that’s right; you’re Black!” LOL. The color of our skin seems to be way more important to other people than it is to us. I think way too many people focus on skin color. If we truly were all equal and we were all unprejudiced, then this wouldn’t even be a topic for discussion in this day and age. But, the fact that we’re still debating this just shows that people have a long way to go in living with and loving their fellow man.”

The first girl to ever pay attention to me

“When I first got to high school in 67 it was an urban school. I attended all-white schools since Kindergarten, but everyone went there for high school. It was 60/40 Black/White. I was a shy kid and struck out with White girls – most of whom weren’t very nice to me (it was the sixties and if you weren’t in with the cool crowd you were kept outside. The first girl to ever pay attention to me, and flirted with me was Black. I think I was 14 or 15, and she was very nice, and made me feel worthwhile – I mean she thought I was good looking and talked to me as if I had value as a human being – no White girl ever talked to me like that. I wish I had the courage then to ask her out (as I said I was shy and I didn’t have the wherewithal to buck societal prejudices and my family then (OK I was a coward) – both of which I regret very much today). It took me a few years to work up to dating Black women (by the time I reached my early twenties I was fearless), and for me it always was a far better experience than the White women I dated or was in relationships with over the years – acceptance of me, no judgements, a willingness to share interests. Love is love; I just know for me I want to find my soul mate and I want her to be Black. I’m not sure if I explained this well at all but I felt the need to say something. I hope everyone here meets their true love.”

Haters, Saboteurs, and Cock Blockers Part Deux

@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!]”

Asian men are attracted to Black women

“As some troll stated, run and tell this: Asian men are attracted to Black women and it’s time you and other sad trolls understood and accepted that.”

God made Black women first, and made the rest outta what was left over!

“God made Black women first, and made the rest outta what was left over! I’m a White guy, but I wouldn’t even consider dating, or marrying, anyone but a Black woman. Maybe I’m all wet, but I find in most Black women a great amount of inner strength yet a certain unique sensitivity or vunerablility. It’s hard to explain, but it’s there in Aces. For what ever reason, I just feel more at ease, more comfortable, with Black people in general. I’m one of only two White guys at my church of over 300, but I’m always treated as jan equal. Actually, I may get a little more attention, as folks don’t want me to feel like a minority. LOL”

We’re afraid that you’ll just hate us right away

“The media is a large purveyor of the bs, definitely. But to be fair regarding Black Woman’s almost necessity to show initial interest, keep in mind that many Asian guys have almost zero confidence in their looks because of the many years of racial abuse & media bashing that Asian men have taken. We’re not so quick to approach Black women immediately because we’re afraid that you’ll just hate us right away.”
