This doesn't mean that white girls who date black guys think that they're above black women.This is not to say that white privilege doesn't exist, it just means that white women don't think they can automatically get a black guy just by virtue of being white.I'm going to attempt to address and dispel these stereotypes surrounding white women who date black men: According to this Reddit thread, black men go after overweight white women because they have less options, so they take what they can get.Not that celebrities are always accurate depictions of regular people, but a handful of the Kardashians prove this stereotype to be false.I'll start off by saying that I don't intend for this article to speak for all white women/men or all black men/women.I exclusively dated white men for many years prior to very recently entering the interracial dating scene.Who can really keep up appearances for that long just to prove a point?
Others feel Black men should want to celebrate becoming a success with the same kind of woman who was likely supportive of them before they made it big — a Black woman. T golfer Tiger Woods married Swedish model Elin Nordegren in 2004.
In my eight years of dating white men, I've had equally good and bad experiences, but there was not one single event that made me decide that I'm no longer into white men.
Sometimes people just get bored of dating the same race and want to explore, especially if they grew up in a town that was predominantly one race.
This is new territory for me, but I think it speaks volumes that I've already discovered that it comes with certain stereotypes attached.
These are some of the stereotypes I've witnessed, along with things people have actually said to me, or things I've read online.
Just because society has identified whiteness as some sort of marker of success doesn't mean that white women view themselves as an “upgrade" for black men.
