Default Why do white women love black men

70% of black/white relationships are black male & white woman. A poll said that 78% of white woman ages 15-30 are attracted to black men. But its just not the u.s, russian women tend to like african american men alot. In germany and australia IR dating is big. Alot of Eastern European women do seem to take alot of interest in bm. It seems that the black male/white woman is very common nowadays. Even in the south in places like ga, tn, sc, nc, miss, la, or tx you can find bm/ww.

Does anybody know why this is happening? I have a co-worker who told me to hook her up with a black dude. I did now thats all she talks about everyday at work all day long. How great he is & how much fun she is having since they started dating. She told me she even has gotten her girlfriends to date black men and they like it to.

Default Plenty of Information

Type black male/white woman in your search engine and you will have the information you seek. Go to the [domain blocked due to spam] message board where they talk about it almost daily.

Variety is the spice of life for some people. Many different reasons given and each person makes their choice regarding what they like and what they want.

I'm curious as to the origin of these quoted statistics.

I live in a (quite small) multi-cultural, multi-racial society where inter-cultural and inter-racial marriages have been a part of the general culture medley since the late 17th century. Someone who lives in a relatively insular mono-cultural/racial environment is going to have (generally speaking) a completely different perspective than one who's been more exposed to diversity.

To go out on a limb here and possibly incur some wrath, it's always seemed to me that those who adamantly decry interracial/intercultural relationships are working from a base of ignorance. Adolf Hitler was bound and determined to promote a "pure-blooded" Aryan race and I guess I should go no further with that aspect!

It's a subject which will continue to be discussed ad nausea for generations to come. The simplistic bottom line is that, in my opinion, colour difference is far less an issue than cultural difference. Regardless of skin colour, a Bible-thumping Baptist isn't going to have much in common with a Buddhist and an Aryan Nation supporter will likewise have little in common with a Jew.

johndoeboy, just curious, but do I sense a bit of angst in your post? You say, "I have a co-worker who told me to hook her up with a black dude. I did now thats all she talks about everyday at work all day long. How great he is & how much fun she is having since they started dating. She told me she even has gotten her girlfriends to date black men and they like it to."

If she had asked you to "hook her up" with a white dude and was then talking about her new love in the office, would you feel the same way? I'm presuming from your post that you're white but know some black "dudes" and she's obviously white but correct me if I'm wrong! Maybe you're black. Me no know!

I'd add too that the workplace is the workplace is the workplace. If she's encouraging you in the workplace to "hook her up" with a black dude, has time in the workplace to not only discuss her personal life but also has time there to hook up her friends, I'd venture to guess that some work in the workplace isn't being done.

I rest my case. Cheers!

I think in Europe, IR relationships have been acceptable for many generations. It's the uptight American attitude that makes us look twice at these relationships.

I'm a "white woman". I don't "love black men". Sorry to burst your statistic there, OP. And having lived in Eastern Europe for the last 10 years, I can assure you that I am not a minority in this one.

When "I" researched the statistics on white women dating black men, it came up with a 5% of the female population.
( Black Men in Interracial Relationships )

And that's just in Washington DC alone, where (mind you) the population is 70% african american as it is.

To each their own, why are you so concerned, unless your seeking other people's opinions to validate your own reasonings for whether to interacially date or not, yourself. You seem to specialize in a lot of controversial subjects throughout the forum. And I'll agree with an above poster, I'd like to know where you think you're getting your statistics from.

Okay, not a white woman here, but I have many friends who are white women and none of them are currently dating black men nor do they talk about a desire to do so. These interracial threads are getting to be rather bothersome. Why talk about race as a factor in dating at all? If you get a long great with that special someone, go for it. And ignore the color of their skin, because it's what inside of them that really counts.

It seems to me that perhaps some women are attracted to black men just like some women are attracted to blonde men or tall men or whatever. There are certain physical attributes each of us find attractive and they are not exclusive.

For example, a woman might think some black men are really attractive and also think some dark haired, dark eyed white men are attractive, but not find themselves attracted to blondes very often. When a man who crosses her path fits either of these, and she likes his personality--voila, they are dating.

I think more people today are open to dating not only their own, but other racial grops as well, and consequently there are more IR relationships around.
