    I wanted to let people know about a great article I read on SLife Magazine's web site about how women of other races choose white men over black men when it comes to online dating. Even though the article deals with dating I think the issue discussed in the article is a societal issue affecting black men and how they are perceived as apposed to a relationship issue so I posted it here. The article basically talks about how when a group of women of different races has the opportunity to select a race they would prefer to date they won't choose black as that race. I thought it was an interesting article and I really think black men should read it. I can't post links yet but if you go to slifeonline.com you'll see the article.

    Without having read it, why should any decent Black man with a sense and love of self be worried about how his blackness is perceived by nonblack women? What lesson is to be learned from that?

    Well, when you log off the make believe world of internet dating where people can pretend to be whoever they want, you'll see that black men do far more dating interracially than average. When you look at the statistics regarding black men in interracial marriages compared to everyone else, you get a more accurate idea. When you go to night clubs you also get a better idea of who is dating interracially. All Asian men and men that have an Asian quality to there appearance like certain Mexicans and Latinos are at the bottom of the totem pole in interracial dating/marriage. Anything that reflects differently has zero credibility.

    We spend too much time thinking about what the outside of us think
    I care less, most of them women are white any way which lots of our
    brothers are dating , I think it's a form of miss infomation because we
    as black men are dating and right now many of us are thinking of stuff
    far beyond this ......

    I agree why should a good brother care about what these online folks think
    there are far too many beautiful black sisters who love black men.

    nice try but why should black men or black women concern themselves of dating hybrid disease races? When we have overall proof that the black man and black woman is the original and supreme beings. No thanks

    If a Black woman is seeking out a Black man (and vice versa) who is of quality character and continues on working to be about the business of strengthening that character, then there is NOTHING inherently 'limiting' about sticking with your own. Paying attention to our history and potential even WITH all our flaws is confirmation of that. To make such an implication is as insulting and blatantly FALSE as those statements which claim that the nonblacks always seem to get the best of us---I STRONGLY beg to differ.
