I'm going to attempt to address and dispel these stereotypes surrounding white women who date black men: According to this Reddit thread, black men go after overweight white women because they have less options, so they take what they can get.
Not that celebrities are always accurate depictions of regular people, but a handful of the Kardashians prove this stereotype to be false.
Just because society has identified whiteness as some sort of marker of success doesn’t mean that white women view themselves as an “upgrade” for black men.
No, we are not all just trying to see if the rumors about black men are true; there are websites for that.
Black people make up 14.4% of the American population, which means there are roughly 21.5 million black men living in America.
Cut that number in half to account for the black children, now that’s 10.75 million.
While it’s true that a woman is more likely to date and marry someone who looks similar to her father, it’s also true that she’ll choose a life partner who shares the same qualities as her father.This is new territory for me, but I think it speaks volumes that I’ve already discovered that it comes with certain stereotypes attached.These are some of the stereotypes I’ve witnessed, along with things people have actually said to me, or things I’ve read online.So perhaps color doesn’t matter in this case, as long as a woman can find someone who treats her well.By dating a black man, we don’t think that’s an extension of “I have black friends, therefore I’m not racist.” If we were racist, we wouldn’t be dating a black guy in the first place.I had a white guy tell me that “7.5 times out of 10, a white girl that’s into black guys has very deep rooted daddy issues.” What evidence there is to prove this, I don’t know.
