Racist dating black girl
I think that a lot of times when people reject anyone of any race, they’re usually basing it on stereotypes.
And they’ve said to me that they preferred Asian women because Asian women are more submissive.That all being said, I think that the cause of having racial preferences is very much informed by that and I think that it’s something that a lot of people say because they have an idea. I knew people of every race from almost every country you could ever think of.Even within that, I think grew up thinking—I probably knew three white people growing up, but I still desired whiteness.I remember there was a time where I used to say I only dated white and Latino men. And that was very, very much—when I think about it, when I look back at myself back then, that was very much something that was informed by white supremacy.In society, we are taught since day one that the most desirable partner is white.Only because to me rejection is one of those situations that leaves you open to more possibilities.
I know a lot of people have a hard time dealing with rejection, but for me rejection has always been, you know, it’s saving my time, it’s saving my energy. I don’t believe in trying to explain to a man why I am desirable as a black woman. It has never really made any sense to me, and it is what it is. Right, because, and I can admit this, even though it’s really problematic: There was a time where I was guilty of putting racial preferences in my profile. Now we can have a whole conversation about Latino and how there are white Latinos, there are black Latinos, there are Asian Latinos, but that’s what I put in my profile, so we’re just going to be honest, okay?
We’re taught that The entire industry of beauty is geared towards white women. And so it’s natural to be a person of color and to view that as an elevated position and therefore pursue that.
And I know for me, I can be honest about it now, I didn’t think about it like this back then, I think for me, having the approval of a white man made me feel good.
To me, that is something that, when I really thought about it and I really taken itm like, I’d been honest about it and really considered it, it’s so messed up.
It’s so funny now because ever since I’ve really become more socially aware about racism, more socially conscious about things like white supremacy, I actually find myself way, way, way more physically attracted to men of color than I do white men on average.
I do think there is a lot of fucked up racism that is definitely within the act of you publicly, loudly proclaiming that you’re only interested in people of this race.
