i think you would find that vast vast majority (99% i'm sure) like and date ethiopian men. I have kissed a girl (now woman since I'm older) that was of ethiopian background, but we're talking about someone who was raised in a North American envirnoment and context. It's not that I at the age of 15 had money, it's that there are a lot of me (white people are about 81% of the Canadian population) here, and I am the face that you see in the media.I heard many people talk about this and decided to bring it to light so that it can be aired very well.What do u think?In my opinion,they do like whites only because they think that whites have more money.
To elaborate on this point, consider how many figures in entertainment you see that are white, also taking into consideration that most people in popular entertainment are attractive.
Annecdotally, there are women in the diaspora and Ethiopia proper that like white men, but it's surely not a majority, or else you would see more interracial dating in the diaspora community. It's there, but it's not that common. There are other reasons that people could come up with, and money is one. Another is the (untrue) perceptions that white men are more faithful, less likely to strike their women (that's a culture wide phenomena not limited to white people in european and eurpean offshoot nations). The best way to find out for yourself is start with the diaspora in your area, and ask them who has dated a white person, and who prefers a white person to an ethiopian. I suspect that you'll find that even of thos who have dated white (say 1/10 - 1/20), you'll find that most of them will still say they prefer dating in their culture, or have no preference, because we are all taught the importance of our own communities as children, and it sticks.
To complete my annecdote from earlier, that girl I kissed has dated nothing but ethiopian men (2 to be precise) since the end of high school, so her dating or experimenting with people like me ended when she had access to more ethiopian people.
