The State of the Union for most African-Americans has changed very little. Despite the promise of change for all Americans, few claim to have seen it for us. We are still the largest consumers in the country, while holding the least capital. We are slaves to our passions, buying Indian hair to replace our own short and curly. We spend our money on clothing, hairstyles, name brands, but do not own computers or books. We watch Maury Povich rather than McNeil Newshour.
Because, if that is the case, maybe Black women feel more attracted to white women black men dating site because our fathers, uncles, grandfathers, brothers, or cousins were our role models. So, we feel a sense of pride when one represents as well as they did.
After about five or ten minutes of unsuccessfully trying to open the door, a police car pulled beside us. An officer got out and asked us what we were doing. I explained that it was my car and I lived there, but he asked for proof. I ran inside and got my identification, while he called-in my license plate.
Rich Beyatch: Many Black men adhere to the old school belief that they must be the breadwinner and have the biggest paycheck. They feel that to be considered the head of their household they must have the financial edge. When you view financial status in a relationship as a tool to control, it follows that you believe the party with the most money also has the most power. Does every woman follow your way of thinking? Absolutely not. The most important thing here is that a woman with her own is not financially needy. As long as she is willing to share her resources for the common good as you are yours, there should be no problems. Communication is key.

Yes… the quest for good hair isn’t limited to only white men looking for black women.

Al Sharpton about how his distinct “do” came to be… inspired by another male proponent of creamy crack relaxer, James Brown.
Now pay close attention. This section can make or break you. My father is an Ivy League educated journalist who graduated from the London School of Economics. Why does every white male friend I introduce to him insist on some kind of funky pounding handshake? He’s not a Harlem Globetrotter. Just shake his hand.
One of my friends also pointed out that I’m too nice to black men. My take on that is, all of God’s creations are worthy of love and respect. Black men are men and as men should know pure, honest, love. How sad that anyone would want to deny us love based solely on the color of our skin (it’s twice as sad when it’s us). Black men are also told by family, friends, co-workers and clergy that they should think about expanding their dating options because black women just don’t know how to act.
Fortunately for me, I am 21, with no children, so I can explore, and date whoever I want. But other Black women refuse to do anything about it. They are just waiting on their moment to marry one of the few Black men, hoping they won’t be one of the one’s to contribute to the unmarried Black Women statistics.
