Nothing would black man happier, than to have a white woman.

Nothing would make a black man happier, than to have a white woman.

I heard this on TV a couple weeks back, and as much as I hate to admit it, I do think that it's true. Not saying that all black men desire white women, but they would be at their happiest if they could attain a white woman/ non-black woman. It's like having a gold, shiny trophy on a shelf. Prime example: How many black male celebrities do you see with a black woman? Don't worry...I'll wait. It's not very many. The average Joe, of course has a harder time getting with someone of the opposite race, which is why it's not as common in the regular, non-celebrity world. Men are known to have have pride, and to show off

It's really the slave mentality. The white woman of the plantation was like a Goddess, an angel, and the most beautiful thing ever to grace the plowed lands. She's was clean, well kept, but she could never even be touched by the male slave. Her value was endless, and she was always placed on a pedestal worth so much more than the black woman. The black woman on the plantation was nothing more than a breeder, a cook, a maid, or simply put just another slave. She was easy to obtain unlike the white woman.

It's like a game, whoever can get the white woman get's the trophy wife. The thing you can show off to all your friends, brag about, and put on a pedestal for all to see. Men are known to be competitive beings, that love to show off their accomplishments, and getting a woman of another race is at the top for lots of black men.

Watching a show called "Basketball Wives" really brought this to my attention. "Basketball Wives" is a show about current and former wives of some of the biggest NBA stars and it airs on VH1. The first episode they introduced the cast, and what I saw was a definite lack of black women. There were some Caucasian women, some Asian, and the majority were mixed (black/white, white/Asian, Hispanic/white, etc.). Shockingly enough there were only about 2 black women on the show, and only one dark skinned.

I know this doesn't represent a good sample, but in my opinion it says a lot. Honestly, I'm all for interracial relationships, but it gets annoying when you see the black woman belittled so much, especially in the media. Most girls in music videos aren't dark skinned, most of them aren't even black. The love interest in black movies are usually lighter skinned black girls or mixed girls. All of this only suggests that darker skinned black women are less attractive than lighter skinned women, which isn't true.

Men have also said that they prefer white women because they aren't as nagging as black women, they don't have attitudes, they aren't outspoken or dramatic. YET most of the non-white women on Basketball Wives are divorced/separated from their husbands...It's not only on the show but most interracial marriages in Hollywood never work out. In the average Joe society, interracial marriages tend to work out more, true...But not all black women are loud and outspoken. Just like there are loud and outspoken black women, there are loud and outspoken white women. Just as there are soft and gentle white women, there are soft and gentle black women, too. So that's not an excuse.

Lil Wayne (the rapper) really said it quite clear in one of his songs: "Beautiful black woman, I bet that *girl* looks better red." I read in a magazine or something that he meant Red as a representation of the gang called "Bloods". I think that is such a load of crap! He meant what he said...A black woman is beautiful BUT she'll look a lot better if she were "red" or light skinned.

There was a study done about a year ago about how young girls viewed the black woman. The researchers put two dolls on a table, one white and one black. The little black girls were asked to pick the prettiest doll and the overwhelming majority of them chose the white doll.

I think this is an interesting case. I'm not saying that it's wrong for black guys to date white women, I love seeing couples in love regardless of race, but I do think that black women should get more credit instead of always being criticized. We should teach our children this fact, that skin color should not equal beauty. Simply put...

PEOPLE SHOULD BE LOVED FOR THEIR PERSONALITY (and inner beauty) and not their skin color.
