What to know about dating a black woman

The infamous Black man and white women couple is often a center of conversation in Black groups, and I’m sure people on the outside have always wondered why?

Most would just chalk it up to racism, but is that truly what it is and if so, where did that disapproval come from?

I can tell you that in this case, the Black woman *humpf* can absolutely be translated to "I wonder how he feels about his own mother."Now, of course, none of this is to say that you can tell the intent of a relationship from the outside because you can't.

And we all know what they say about those who make assumptions.

We also often see a similar reaction from Black men when they come across a Black woman in a relationship with a white man.

So, if it’s okay for other people to date outside of their race, why isn’t it okay for Black people?

And not just ugly, but uneducated, disgusting, and inferior.

Tiya Miles, a writer for the Huff Post suggests that for many Black men, the white woman less of a partner and equal, but more of a big, shiny prize.

" Many Black women can't help to think feel as though a great number of Black men choose to date outside of his race for superficial reasons.

You’re a little self-conscious about wrapping your hair at night in front of them for the first time but pfft, they better get used to it.

Coming to terms with the fact that there are some things about being black that they will just never get, no matter how empathetic they are.

I'd imagine the great majority of interracial unions are solely based on true love because I couldn't imagine a relationship lasting on anything less than that, but even so, there are still stigmas in the Black community that we have placed on ourselves and interracial relationships.

Now, the question that I don't know the answer to is, is it up to us to change how we view these relationships or will those stigmas wither away when we no longer live under the cloud of white supremacy?
