Interracial Relationships, dating, and marriages have long been a debated issue in America, from the time it was made illegal in the south, and still today when we are all free to date who we please. I think that African American women actually suffer the most when it comes to sitting down and listening to stereotypes about themselves and other females from white men, and more importantly black men who decide to date outside of the race.
Tyra Banks decided to tackle the issue on her show Here's The Video:
After watching that, I sat down with a male friend and we discussed the stereotypes that hinder both African American Males and Females.
Black girls who believe that all black men are no good.
Black men who cant appreciate or see the beauty in their female counterparts.
Reasons why black men date outside of the race, which disgustingly included:
-Because other races of women don't have the "Attitude problem" that black women are supposed to be known for.
-Because black women are too strict
-Because black women are not as pretty as women from other races (seriously?)
etc. etc. etc.
Reasons why black women date outside of their race which include:
-because black men ain't sh*t.
-because black men are lazy.
-because black men are hard to find who are equally as successful as we are.
-because black men are either in jail, dead, got a baby mama, or selling drugs.etc. etc. etc
Seriously? Its 2009....
