Blacks' approval of black-white marriage (96%) is now nearly universal, while whites' approval is 12 percentage points lower, at 84%.
Blacks' approval has consistently been higher than whites' over the decades, although attitudes among both racial groups have generally moved in a parallel manner since 1968 -- when Gallup first was able to report reliable estimates of each group's opinion.
My attempts to date interracially have mostly failed.... No one wants to be ashamed or embarrassed to bring a guy around friends & family. or see embed below: The white male is synonymous with money and success. There is this thing in the Black Community (God I hate that term)... This is ingrained in the minds of most Black women. Black women today (particularly those 21-35 give or take a few years) are trained to look for different traits and characteristics when determining what the ideal guy is. That is like a badge of honor..women reward these men accordingly... Of course there are also the Black women who have the shallow physical standards -- as mentioned before the 6ft rule is a common one...often a dealbreaker. Even the BBC recently did a story on segregation in present day St. Even back then (early 1990's) it seemed more socially progressive.
He doesn't even have to have much money or success... (White men have it pretty good when it comes to the dating scene. She stated that she was not used to being treated like that.... an unwritten code that says if you are a gentleman.... The old school gentleman of color is out of style and has been for quite some time (men like my father... these men literally get more offers for intimacy than they can handle. I stand about 5'6 or 5'7..I am considered too short. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 50k-60k is often the absolute minimum you can earn to afford her. Louis makes matters worse, because this is one of the most segregated metro areas in the U. I witnessed racism..there were a lot of mixed race couples in my High School. And my first crush (a majestic, gorgeous Mexican girl for which I have seen no match to this day... But Kansas...being in the Midwest..perhaps an anomaly.
But the fact is, I don't usually fit what Black women tend to look for. I don't like to go to nightclubs, entertainment venues, or social gatherings that they may go to, and I would love to send Jay Z and Beyonce to Alcatraz..that I never have to hear anything about them again. I just don't tend to get along with Black women (generally speaking). The racism in dating indeed seems to vary in terms of degree of ugliness depending on what part of the country you are in.
Her middle-class British family often make racist remarks about his skin colour ("didn’t see you there in the dark – you should have smiled").
Over the years legions of white-supremacist legislators, judges, prosecutors, police officers, and other officials have attempted to prohibit open romantic interracial attachments, particularly those between black men and white women.
From the 1660s to the 1960s, forty-one territories, colonies, or states enacted laws—anti-miscegenation statutes—barring sex or marriage between blacks and whites, and many states ultimately made marriage across the color line a felony.
I would be lying if I said I didn't envy that somewhat). She thought it was strange that I paid for everything... Some want the rapper clones...while others want the rich Black doctor or attorney. it leaves me with interracial dating where the options are extremely few and far between. Florida (another adopted home State) is far more diverse than the Midwest... Even growing up in Kansas showed me a lot about different cultures, diversity, etc. Maybe it was just the community (a mixed race school and community may have altered my perception).
But there is a problem with the success angle (which could be a legitimate preference, although in my opinion it makes the women look completely shallow)... even when you take a black guys profile and correct for education (add a college education), and add a middle class income, and show that the guy is decent looking..has a wide variety of interests, he will still face discrimination for being Black. I am open to dating women from all ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. But I am better off for having lived there during some crucial years growing up.
