Black men wanted dating
My eyes and heart tend to steer me in that direction.I can't pinpoint physical features or characteristics of black men because that's not only wrong, it's just not the entire case. Have I come across one that's caught my attention? I have strong Mexican men in my life, too—my father and my two brothers—that I hold close, respect, and admire.
"You're going to end up pregnant before you're married," she once said. But my grandfather—my mother's father—wasn't too fond of my dad.I used to say I didn't have a type, but if we go off consistency, I do.While I've dated other races, I'm mostly attracted to black men.The majority of what my parents know about other races they've learned through media or second-hand stories.Stories, which laced with racial stereotypes, were told continuously that they became truth.This is not the case for all black women, as the question has been edited to suggest. This is a real conversation between myself and a "brown enough" woman friend.
I'm sharing this because we have a longstanding back-and-forth about what she perceives to be my preference for fairer skinned women.
From day one they're told that beauty is something they have to approximate if possible, that they're substandard.
This deficiency of esteem is then compounded with a disturbing socioeconomic reality as they mature: productive black women tragically outnumber productive black men, and the perception of this might be even worse than the this on the head in his answer. A black woman who advances her education/profession faces a diminishing pool of equivalent black men, which drives the value of successful/educated black men way up.
Those "stories" tell of black men leaving their women, and of black men being promiscuous and violent. While problematic, my parents' thinking was the thinking of their time.
And, really, it roots deeper than my parents, my grandparents, and their parents before them.
There is a third suspect named Rodney Cooper, and he has been arrested for his involvement.
