I'm an African woman and just as disgusted about the African women who come out here in the morning and by noon they are already married to a white man. For goodness's sake, they don't even know anything about the whites' way of thinking! How can you love someone you don't know, to the pointing of becoming one with him? After that's been said, white men approach us more than black men. As time go by, I've started to fear for my self, that I too might defect!

i'm nigerian but i was born and raised here in the states. my parents raised me not to discriminate. i think most africans and carribeans just don't have a problem with getting into relationships with white men because they don't have that history of abuse with the white men that the african american females did........so they are a bit more open to it.

I thought 'laziness' was a complaint about Americans as a whole, not just the black ones. And whatever would you do if you encountered a lazy white person without a college education and an industrious black person with one?

Probably because they don't have b.s. hang ups (i.e. he's the descendent of slave owners, how will we handle this whole hair thing, etc.) that would make them automatically rule white men out as a dating option.

If you don't know your history and have a problem observing stuff, then you might not have any second thoughts about marrying white. I don't agree that African African women are more comfortable in these relationships than African Americans women are. I can imagine what our African American brothers have gone through, and I think what we need is some more one million man match, instead of bitching about the consequences of the times on their habits. It's a group problem. They are our men, fathers, brothers and sons.

I don't know. A friend of mine from Morocco is married to an American white man, for 9 yrs now, and one of my co-workers from Ghana, wants to marry a white man. Maybe they feel that they'll have a better life, not to mention I think American black men get a bad rap, my friend from Morocco don't even like Black men, but I think it's the persona many black men have, that is a turn off for her.

they are brittish control,and american white control in many parts of Africa.

Especially south africa.

People over there have chains on their brains as well.

The african women over there who do, suffer fron much self hatred as well.

Now upper Northern parts were people are more tribal, you won't see his.

untrue. In parts of South Africa many blacks hate each other as well.

All parts of Africa is not the same.

the southern parts have experiece white domination from America,and brittish rule.

Wherever,and whenever there is domination there would be mind control,and a preference for who is on top.

I agree. It's because of the lies that's started by tv,and white rule. Notice it's always parts of South Africa,which experience brittish,and American providences as oppose to a African from Sudan.

Look I wasn't born in Senegal but my mom's family were and I THINK they may come over and marry Caucasian American men for a) social status just like a lot of Asian women do or maybe b) because like Africans despite of their will to fix their own countries, they ARE highly intelligent people, therefore, they WANT likewise. I've heard that some African women don't like African AMERICAN men (or even the women) because of all of the time we've been here in the U.S., we STILL don't have even half of our community up to par. Some are disgusted by us because they come here and GRAB the education that's offered to them. They appreciate the things here that they could never get in their home countries due to warlords and economic collapse...not to mention worrying about their health. An African woman knows all TOO well how hard she has it in her home country so why would SOME of them lower their standards in a country with plenty of opportunity? That's what some think. Many Ethiopians here in CO I know think this way.
Also many of the South African places are dominated by America,and brittish rule for years. They have chains on their brains as well from TV.

Think about it. Everyone like to be on the dominating team,or winning team.

People like the Lakers,Bulls,Patriots,Cowboys, and Yankees.

People don't root for the saints before Katrina.

So what I'm saying is those women in South African americanzed cultures lust after white people as well.

You won't find white men going after tribal african women.

Believe that.

Funny europeans who have white rule lust after black people.

Life is a see saw, isn't it.

How you been though? You been missed by me.

I am a Black American woman engaged to a White man. My fiance was born in the UK(Northren Ireland). Not all White people were involved in slavery. Actually, the Irish were hated and discrimminated agianst in this country just as much as us Black people. I was raised to get along with everyone. My Dad was in the military and I was exposed to people of different races and cultures. I lived in Japan for two years. My parents raised me not to use slavery as an excuse for not succeeding in life. I just don't have the hang-ups about slavery that too many Black American women have. Black people need to get over the slavery mentality. I for one am sick of Black people whining about it. My late husband was Black, but I don't really get along with Black American men. I recently spent three weeks in Europe and found the African people I met to be intelligent and well-educated. I feel I have more in common with them and White Europeans than American Blacks. Sorry, just my experience.

I think I just answered my own question - I work at a luxury motorcar dealership, hence our customers tend to be football players, mucisians, and baseball players - Several of these sports players are black, and I have observed that majority of them are married/dating non-black women. Hence my conclusion to the reason why African women do marry white men. Therefore, I have answered my own question, nix the topic - soul searching can be painful

Immigrants don't ever have the same race consciousness as the settled natives of a place. When Nigerian comes to the US after living there for most of his life, he's just a Nigerian in the US, he isn't black-American (and all the constraints that would come with it).

To them, marrying a black American is the same as marrying a white American or anyone for that matter, because by tradition, them too marry only within region, ethnicity, tribal affiliation, etc.

So if they are so open-minded as to look past those, I think they'll be open-minded enough to look past race as well, since they probably never grew up in a race conscious society to begin with.

No, you are stupid. You need to get a frickin' life loser. You are a total pain in the arse with your racist nonsense. Why are so you so ignorant and narrow-minded? Oh that's right, you are a Black male. That explains it all. Everyone is wrong but you. You are always right. Oh yes, tommy knows all and sees all. Hah! Don't you bother to read? Way back then, American Whites hated everyone who was not Anglo-Saxon Protestant. They hated the Irish and Italians becuase they were Catholic. Black folks don't have the market cornered on suffering and discrimmination. Mexicans, Jews, Chinese, and the Japanese also suffered from prejudice as well. My point is that it is time for American Blacks to stop wallowing in self pity. Other people in the world including African Blacks have had it just as bad or worse than American Blacks but you see them come over here and succeed. Many of these people come from nothing. They have a desire to educate themselves and become successful. If they can do it, why can't we? We American Blacks are squandering our opportunities and it is so sad. There is no excuse any more. The time for "blaming Whitey" is over.
