Listen: F**k Your Ethnicity
I’ve been staring at this blank page for a minute now thinking how I can expound on this “Interracial Dating” topic. It’s just been frustrating me even more trying to put my feelings into words concerning this matter. For years I have taken so much criticism for dating a Caucasian female or rocking with any other race other than Black. I’m not necessarily pointing all the blame at black females, but that’s where 100% of the blame has come from. I’m tired of the mad black woman antics. Get over it!! Please help me to understand how you can get upset that a black man chooses a white woman over you. Race, often has nothing to do with it. Some females have slandered the hell out of me for it. I remember specifically a black chick at “T” inbox me on Facebook stating, ”How are you going to date a white chick and you go to a black university?” I was in a state of awe. Did someone really have the guts to send me a message like that? I didn’t even know who she was until I saw her in class. I gave her the smooth “side eye.” What made it worse is that she was ugly.
If I were a professional athlete I don’t think I would hear a word from the critics. There are numerous celebs that are in interracial relationships. Do you hear anything about that….I’ll wait….yeah didn’t think so! Nowhere in the tabloids do you here about Wiz Khalifa and Amber Rose being slandered because of their “interracial” relationship. Just because someone has a nice bank account that shuts the haters up, but for an ordinary guy like myself I gotta hear that bullshit? True. Stop complaining!! I know I might sound harsh, but I think all this bitterness is “soft toe Reeboks.” Some of you women don’t take too kindly that men point and call you out for being gold diggers. No, It’s not the same thing, but you have a preference in who or what type you chose just like men have a preference in what ethnicity or type of female they chose to explore.
The sad thing about this is that the reasons a black woman might object to an interracial relationship are wholly different from the reasons a white woman might. Black women worry how the black community will be affected overall if, the most successful black men find themselves with white women again and again. They worry about the effect interracial relationships have on low marriage rates in the black community. In contrast, when I encounter black woman who cop an attitude upon discovering that my girl and I are an item, their hostility comes from a very different place, a place of superiority. They attempt to look me up and down when they think I won’t notice. Others have just been aloof or exhibited general bitchassness when I try to make conversation with them. I know that if I am having such experiences other black men involved with non-black women are as well. Yet, black women continue to bear the onus for the hostility that black-white interracial couples face.
