You said: “Bantu when you see a black man with a white woman do you think her skin is the reason he is with her. I can't speak for all the black man that are with women of another race,I sure there are as many reasons as there are relationships. “
I think many black men who sniff big time after white chicks have problem of low self-esteem. White women represent prestige and power to many of us blacks, so when the black men sex up white women, it boost their self-esteem. Black man doing it, I say is ignorance and self-hatred.
You said: “ she crossed my path and that what happen with the white woman I with now we just crossed paths while I was out and we clicked I'm not colorblind not going to feed you that line of B.S I do see color and I'm aware of the struggle we have been through as black people but just as I did'nt pick her for the color of her skin I not going to turn down someone who I'm feeling in that way just because of her skin color or what other would think. I know some don't think I can still be proud to black and still want to see black people rise but I am and I do. “
Uhmm… it sounds more like you are an individual with problem or issue, no disrespect intended what so ever but I smile, because I’m sure many black woman feel as I do. I mean dam there are many sistahs with natural strength and beauty in our community, yet in such vast supply you say you desire to be, not with your “own,” but with a white chick - yeah, the same white chick whose grandpappy murdered yours in a million imaginatively brutal ways. I can't imagine where this type of integrationist behavior would be coming from on the part of a so-called "black conscious brotah." If it's not self-hatred then it is perhaps a status and economic opportunism at best. Look at yourself in the mirror to see how you may have brainwashed.
