Consider all the gay/transgender black men, now we're down to about 9.75 million.
But all those 9.75 million black men have to be single, within a certain age range, emotionally available and meet your standards.
So perhaps color doesn't matter in this case, as long as a woman can find someone who treats her well.
By dating a black man, we don't think that's an extension of “I have black friends, therefore I'm not racist." If we were racist, we wouldn't be dating a black guy in the first place.
I've always been a "Daddy's Girl" and I would never intentionally date a specific race in an attempt to “lash out" at either of my parents.
While it's true that a woman is more likely to date and marry someone who looks similar to her father, it's also true that she'll choose a life partner who shares the same qualities as her father.
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.
Not that celebrities are always accurate depictions of regular people, but a handful of the Kardashians prove this stereotype to be false.
Interracial marriages were only legalized in the United States 50 years ago, which means that when a black man and white woman walk down the street holding hands in certain parts of the country, they are still going to get glared at.
I had another white guy tell me that interracial sex is bestiality and that interracial marriage is against the Bible (in 2017! ) Sure, it's fun to piss redneck, Confederate flag waving, Fox News watching racists off, but dating is too much effort for that to be the only perk.
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.
