“Last holiday season gave me plenty of food for thought on this all too familiar and often uncomfortable racially-tinged question.One of my male relatives brought home a date for Thanksgiving who could have been Barbie’s twin sister.” She assures readers: she has nothing against these women. Instead the background history that has rendered black women undesirable as partners needs to be brought to light. “Romantic attraction is subject to the larger social forces of racial prestige and stigma that swirl all around us, and in this environment, black women are losing out,” she states.It is also, as the book asserts, a status symbol for Black men that they got a White girl. Interestingly, I watch the Breakfast Club a lot, which is a Black talk show available on You Tube (I highly recommend it for anyone interested in examining the psychology of Black people), and the female side-host of the show (or whatever you call that, she isn’t really a “co-host”), Angela Yee (who has a Chinese father somehow) is obsessed with asking the male guests, generally rappers and Black actors, if they date White women.Almost all of them will say no, they prefer Black women, indicating that Persaud’s assertion that this is a way for Black men to boost their self-esteem is true, as already successful Black men are not interested in interracial dating (this could also be partly due to the fact that successful Black men have access to the most attractive Black females, while the average Black male has to deal with fat Black women, and a fat White woman is more attractive to a Black male than a fat Black one).Writing for The Huffington Post, Miles penned a moving essay about this phenomenon: Hers is a tale of seeing first hand the black men in her family routinely select white women as mates.This rattles her even though she is married to a Native American.Professor Lewis' study also found that a person who is contacted by someone from a different racial background for the first time is more likely to reply, which he explains using his theory about 'pre-emptive discrimination'.'Based on a lifetime of experiences in a racist and racially segregated society, people anticipate discrimination on the part of a potential recipient and are largely unwilling to reach out in the first place,' he said.
If I had to say why Black men love White women, I would say it probably has to do with their soft hair.
*mocking you, again* Leaving Frawley Stadium (Wilmington, DE's minor league ball park) a few nights ago I passed a white man (didn't look Jewish) holding hands with a black woman.
Both looked like they were in their late 20's no older. And as soon as I got out of earshot, I muttered to myself silently, "race mixer!
