This past weekend I’ve caught myself smiling at a couple on Grandby St. walking hand-in-hand. Not because they looked trendy in their tailored peacoats but more so because they were an interracial couple openly walking on a saturday night. The black women looked very proud as she held her head high and passed me with her white man grinning from ear-to-ear next to her. I couldn’t help but to smile back because I was happy that she was happy.
But the question arises, why is that more black women are starting to date white men? Is it because there are a lack of black men available? Maybe they just don’t want us? My excuse to moving forth outside of our race and culture is because black men have seem to given up on us. We can sit around moping and complaining about black men not doing right but if they aren’t then move on to someone who would. (obviously homegirl caught the trend) I’m pretty sure there are plenty of men outside your own race who are willing to give, provide, and recieve the love and companianship that a black man may not do at this point in time. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t knock the brothas, but there has been a difference of reasons as to why black women date outside their race. Black men use “Angry Black Women” as an excuse and so if your own kind doesn’t approve, use the excuse of their disaproval to move on.
