Interracial dating stereotypes
There's a saying I've heard before that goes "White guy gets the check, black guy gets the sex," men may falsely interpret your sexual wariness as wanting a relationship with a white man but being more sexually/physically attracted to black guys.
However false, it IS completely accurate to call it prejudice to suspect the worst of a guy's romantic intentions simply because of his skin tone.
It's not white men that are keeping black women single.
The "Won't Marry You" line is an especially popular one among black families who perhaps aren't all that ready to embrace a white son-in-law themselves.
The last time I checked it is a widely held belief that men in general tend to like sex, want sex, think about sex once every 7 seconds (I just did), and--and this will surprise exactly no one--don't want to marry every girl they have sex with.
I am not exactly sure why it is completely sinister for a white man to want sex while it is just regular lousy or typical for a black man to want it. Believe it or not it's about the best way I can think of to sabotage a relationship.
I'd say your odds of a white husband are just fine. "Black Women are just interested in money"--Women period are interested in money.
It's a familiar tactic of the prejudiced to make it seem like they are the victims of prejudice (like Glenn Beck saying Barack Obama hates white people in a recent interview lol).
So I would always encourage people to ask themselves why someone is really saying this and if maybe there isn't at least some wariness on the part of a black father or grandmother or traditionalist (i.e.
I mean..you can't tell that some clean cut, Mormon, Matt Damon Jr.
lookalike is more of a monogamous guy than a guy named Antonio Bad Balla Williams bragging from the rooftops about his “swagga,” you're not being entirely honest with yourself. "A white guy won't marry you"--Judging by the statistic that 40 percent of black women in the US never get married, black guys won't either.
I have seen some black guys on message boards get so mad when they see Joy Bryant or Zoe Saldana or Naomi Campbell date/marry a white guy, even though they don't know them, never met them, never will meet them, and never had a shot anyway. The bottom line is that some of the most charming, good looking, intelligent black men I can think of (Taye Diggs, Montell Williams) are married to white women, and that leaves some lower class, misogynistic black men with black women ridiculously out of their league: Ike and Tina Turner, 50 Cent with Vivica A.
