I know that and I don't care.

It was in response to the poster making it seem like only BLACK WOMEN had the market on acting loud and ratchet.

Oh, and as far as NOSES go, we won't talk about WHO has the WORST schnozes.

Come on Mary...you're kinda not helping the stereotype. He was merely stating that that's how SOME people view it. He even admitted that there's some racism in it. Man you're a trip!

Is it the skin color or something else? If darker skin is "bad", the same thing doesn't seem to hurt Asians or Arabs tho Arabs are still "white".

No, I'm NOT trying to be a Troll.

Some of the most famous, wealthiest and most powerful men in the world have Black wives, fiances or girlfriends...stop projecting your own prejudices onto Black women.

Aside from other Europeans, more European royals are either married to or have had relationships with Black women than any other race of women.

Agreed about the cause cited. Some African-American women I have known, both professionally and personally, have been some of the very kindest, sweetest, and most pleasant and friendly people I have ever known. The stereotype referenced above is clearly false.

I came across this thread by chance. Personally, I don't care who people date, but I have to ask you how did you compile this list and how long did it take you to do it?

Very interesting topic, but sistas want a man that has it together, they just ain't settling for no anything, most of them. Darker skin is VERY beautiful, it's different that's what makes it so unique. But I'm sure women in general want the same thing.

I've been around some nice Black women. Quite a few of them have had boyfriends too. The way I look at the stereotype, it exists in some Black for sure. However, it isn't true of all Black women. I've met some very loud and rude Black women. I've also met some very loud and rude White women as well.

I also had to think about something. I'm a Black man, and my sister is a Black woman. Between her and me, she has better luck in dating than me. I'm 26 and she's 22. She has had a boyfriend, and she currently has one now. She also breaks the rule of Black women not being into interracial relationships. All of her boyfriends have been White. Her current boyfriend is White. I've actually had problems with dating(never had a girlfriend).
