Your “ideal” woman…

 9 times out of 10 she is not black.

I am a woman who loves men in all shapes, sizes and colors. Men are men to me — no matter the race. And I personally can say I have a dating/sexual history that looks similar to a United Colors of Benetton ad. But I can’t say that, at least in the South, I’ve noticed a real “boom” in other races dating black women. More than likely you see a black man with a white woman. I don’t have a problem with that but was once told by a black male friend of mine that black man seek out white women because they are considered unattainable, a prize. I can give you a nice little highschool memory here but I think I will save it for a later blog.

I don’t care who people date. However if I’ve got to play the Internet Dating Game (which already pretty much sucks), I don’t really swallow alienation that well. Just take any dating site. Do a search and look at what the  guy is looking for, ethnicity-wise.

Here are your options:

African American (black)
Asian
Caucasian (white)
East Indian
Hispanic/Latino
Middle Eastern
Native American
Pacific Islander
Inter-racial
Other

And of course there is the option of checking the box for “any.”

Here is the fun part: Just take out a little scrap of notebook paper and check the appropriate boxes as you browse the guys’ “wish list.” You can add the “any” box in your total for each ethnicity, just to be fair. I’ll give you a minute….

OK, did you total them up? Even the black fellas’ totals? Are you amazed yet? You guessed it! Almost everyone either checked a few boxes, excluding the African American (black) box, or checked every damn box but African American (black).

Pass it on, it’s an entertaining game you can play with your friends.
