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.
Nor are white women trying to take anything away from black women.
A white friend of mine who was dating a black guy in school (who is now her husband) says that she was quick to experience pushback, when she would hear things such as “she’s taking our good men! There are plenty of black men who exclusively date black women and in those cases, white women don’t have any sort of edge.
I'm going to attempt to address and dispel these stereotypes surrounding white women who date black men: According to this Reddit thread, black men go after overweight white women because they have less options, so they take what they can get.
Not that celebrities are always accurate depictions of regular people, but a handful of the Kardashians prove this stereotype to be false.
I’ll start off by saying that I don’t intend for this article to speak for all white women/men or all black men/women.
I exclusively dated white men for many years prior to very recently entering the interracial dating scene.
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.
This doesn’t mean that white girls who date black guys think that they’re above black women.
