No memba when this week..Gotta question for my peeplz i kinda swagger jacked from a radio host I heard while in Canada a week ago....He asked the audience of people how many people ever dated outside of there race, and what seems to be the main reason why its seems so taboo amongst sistah's...Now, as a black man, Im not going to tell you that many of us look at skin as a deterrent, I know some who do, but by in large the majority Ive been around rarely discriminate. Mostly, we check for looks, personality, and annoyance factor. (Ladies theres know way to know your score on the last one, b/c each man has a different tolerance)
With that said, Believe it or not, color is low on the priority list..But, thats from a mans perspective. I couldnt tell you why my sistah's would never date outside of the race..
But, that's why we blog...
Some of the basic reasons I came up with are,
1 . The take Home shock therapy.. The guy may be the best man in the world, but he aint never going to meet the parents..Mom and Dad are still stuck in the stone age in that regard.
2. The he wont be able to relate with "my" issues phobia...Simply put, as a minority day to day its a struggle, coming home and and trying to relay those feelings to someone who doesn't get it, may take its toll. ie Sanaa Lathan in Something New
3. Self Loathe. What does it tell all blackman out there, when they see me with a _____..
4. Embarrassment. I sure hope so and so didn't see us at Papadeaux's the other day.
This is just me brainstorming, any inputs to the discussion are highly encouraged..
