Boys scared of dating
Now I've moved on to White men and what may be preventing them from approaching Black women.
Research from the dating app OKCupid has even proved that Black women are least desired.
In the Reconstruction, Harlem Renaissance, and Civil Rights eras, many stereotypes of Black women arose from the widespread literature that misrepresented them. There are a lot of White guys out there that date Black girls or are married to Black women; that is obvious.
Some of you may even be wondering why I decided to touch on this topic and don't believe it to be a real thing, but growing up as a Black girl in an upper-middle-class household -- with tons of beautiful Black girlfriends who are talented and intelligent -- has led me to wonder why Black girls are so undesired.
I mean, what do you put on those dumb online dating profiles anyway? What could I say that would keep the creeps away and only filter in the "nice guys"?
I got messages from many different guys, some not repeatable, and I was doubting this dating after divorce thing really quickly.
Young individuals (often White) from suburban, upper-middle-class households are more likely to stay within their communities, more than any other social class.
So it's only natural that these individuals only mingle with their own race.
David Asenov, a friend of mine and a mechanical engineering student at Florida State University, suggested that perhaps White guys just don't know how to approach Black girls.In an earlier article of mine, I discovered why some Black men degrade Black women.That was due to their subconscious belief that Black is not beautiful, intelligent, etc.Perhaps there is a reluctance to date Black girls -- girls who used to be deemed as less than human -- due to the fear of being looked down upon (interracial marriages were illegal, you know).Similar to the situation in my past article regarding a Black man who ridiculed and hated Black women because of the stereotypes he believed, it is possible that some White men believe the same.
