I think many Black males like yourself and friends HATE Black women! You'll get in younger Black women faces and smirk and gloat about how you chose "White women" for 40 years and how "Nobody wants a Black woman".

I think its more your "Warped Mentality, Inability to Man up as well as Measure up" ; you had "No plan" for your life because you didn't have a Clue! You want us to overlook your "Short comings" and cry "Racism and Da White Man holds we Black men back but you "Worship and uplift their Daughters" and let us know that you feel White men are superior! lmao

You validate White men as superior to you!

That' s why the blogs are telling "Attractive, Educated, well educated Black women to "Date and marry out".

Black women are dating/marrying White males, I see in the Washington Post now on a weekly basis as well as other Urban areas, I'm hearing more and more Black women are crossing the color line.

Black women have the Education, Wealth, Power which uplifted the race; while Black males have virtually torn the race down with high risk lifestyles which not only destory Black families but themselves!

Now you have a race of women being Pushed and now willingly dating/marrying out and unwilling to "Invest" in any Black males. That will not only "Decrease the Black race" but it contributes to the browning of America!

The problem with Black men even when they are Doctors, Lawyers they generally marry down when they IR date/marry. They have a tendency to marry Average/Below Average White women with No or little education. The bulk of Black men have little education and many "Live off women" similar to what Jeff has done!

Black women have a tendency to marry on their level or higher which elevates the race but they create biracial children.

I know you hate White men getting the Best, Brightest, Attractive and most Educated Black women but I agree with JayLove on YouTube..........You HATE BLACK WOMEN MACEO

Black People Who Don't Find Their Own Race Attractive Are Self Haters

Funny, I talked to an East Indian man yesterday he was 72 years old but he didn't look it. He gave me a compliment but thought I was Indian. When I told him my race he said "No you don't look Black".

funny he said by 2023; most of Corporate America will have East Indian, Middle Eastern some Black women running things in America! Even though racism was prevalent; they were buying the retail chains as well and they kept moving remaining a tight knit community.

He said Black men chase "Sex too much" and want to be Players! They waste alot of time and don't have high intelligence but the women seem to do well and work very very hard. He said I heard the Black man don't want Black women they prefer White women but in my country, whites are considered "inferior". I hear that Black men live off women, can' t pay for dates nor do they get married and make lots of babies and are content not being Fathers to them. We don't understand other than they are men of low intelligence and disrespectful of their women.

He said the same thing TAM, he said you should find "Other men" who will respect you and leave Low intelligence Black males alone; they waste too much time! LMAO

He told the truth!

Even funnier is that Light skin/Biracial Black women who are educated, attractive and classy avoid dating/marrying Black men now!

A big Shift has taken place in the dating paradigm!

Black men are the least desired by Accomplished, Attractive Black women! LMAO I get black men rating on the dating sites on how they can't get attractive Black women now they ignore them for White males or other races of men!

Black women moving on! lmao

So your experiences centered mostly around primary school? Do you have other experiences of racism since?

Agree. Its certainly a thought at this point...especially when we have a program named dark girls but yet most shown on the program aren't dark and the level of attractiveness was certainly questionable for them as well. I simply don't see how the program is helping dark girls at all. They need to quit doing these type shows imo.

You're right that quite a few of the women were not Grace Jones "dark". I guess the focus was that they were not light skinned.
As far as watching, I had a very negative mindset and I was emotional. I had to give myself a break and go back with fresh eyes and really listen to what the women and men were saying.
I believe that the tide is turning and status quos are breaking down. I think that this is very timely.
People are trying so hard to keep BW in their place, but things are changing.
Nothing stays the same forever!
Well they didn't need to be grace Jones dark nor look like her in anyway. There are different shades of dark and this should have been shown more imo...instead of simply picking girls who weren't light skinned and naming them dark...and then to show those women looking unattractive mostly. What is that doing? It seemed to truly be a program largely about the unattractive and hiding behind the label dark. Very very offensive.

I'm really not trying to be insensitive, but how is a societal bigotry against darker hued sisters any different from a bigotry against BLACKS in general? There are those who are contemptuous of blackness in all of it's incarnations, so beyond the fact that FEMALES trade in the currency of physical beauty moreso than men; what is the difference?

And yes, though I couldn't possibly quantify the disparity, for whatever the reasons, there does exist an aesthetic bias in favor of the lighter hued sisters, but let say this matter was brought before a trial and this truth was established beyond a reasonable doubt; how do you legislate a remedy? And if it beyond the realm of possibility to do so; what is the point of these programming?

I'm just curious: What would you sisters propose as a remedy? Do we mandate quotas and restrictions on black men's romantic choices? Because once you define a problem, the logical next step in the sequence would be to devise a solution.
