Over the weekend, black women were honored during BET’s annual “Black Girls Rock!” event which got us thinking. We know Black women are amazing and deserve all of the kudos in world but do the men see it?
In response, we posed the question to our Facebook page:
“If “Black girls rock” (because we know we do), then why do black men use our perceived flaws to justify dating outside their race?”
We received tons of responses, check them out below and give us your opinions in the comment section.
“Some Black men who date outside of their race would do so even if Black women treated them like Gods or Kings. These Black men make up lame excuses about Black women having flaws to somehow justify their (Black Men’s) interracial dating choices, when in actuality these Black men worship White flesh, and would do so no matter how good Black women were,” said John F.
“Because they don’t like what they see in the mirror,” said Lavinnia B.
“Some of you black women are crazy and have issues no man will deal with that bullshit,” said Jartel H.
“I will never understand that but I never dated a white girl and only dated several Hispanics and only off of attraction, physical and intellectual but I am happily engaged to a black woman,” said, Roger S.
Robin S. said, “Pathetic men like Kanye West do, not REAL men!”
