Statistics show that white men usually date within their race and if they don’t, they are more likely to date a Hispanic, Asian or pacific islander.The percentage of white men and black women that date is a very low one.5.

Through my findings it seems as though black women aren’t actually opposef to dating outside of their race.

Part of the dilemma lies in women of color thinking that men outside of their race won’t be attracted to them.

After speaking to 6 black women between the ages of 25-40 most state that they believe a white man would not be attracted to them because of their voluptuous bodies.2.

Hair Black women have been ridiculed for their hair for many many years. If we have a weave, we aren’t happy with who we are and would really like to be a white woman. Since this is already a touchy subject in the black community, it’s obvious as to why a black woman would rather avoid the whole “hair conversation” when dating a white man.

They are never approached by white men We as black women are constantly criticized for being the ones not open to dating outside of our race but what happens if white men just do not approach us?

When I surveyed these women, 4 out of the 6 said they were never even approached by a white guy.

Interracial dating has been one of the biggest conversations within the black community.

Black men have made it no secret their liking to white women.

In the black community, we naturally have to work twice as hard and be 3 times smarter to achieve the level of success deemed to be successful.

White men that are very successful will usually date a woman who is as successful or at least in the same class as himself.

Regina King recently raised the argument that we as black women still have not become completely comfortable dating outside our race.
