And you can encounter it in all different colors of men, including the ones who share your hue.
Avoid ignorance at all costs, but you can’t assume that a guy is ignorant just because he’s white, any more than a white guy should assume that a black guy is a thug just because he’s black. In general, women across the board are less likely to date men of different races.
In your outlook, you’re doing the very same thing that you’re accusing people of doing to you. Many men don’t have that same “loyalty”—or “hang-up,” depending on how you look at it.
To be fair, I have to acknowledge that there are nonblack men who hold weird beliefs about black women. Recently on Madame Noire, a black woman wrote, “Are You the Type of Black Girl That White Guys Like? She regularly encountered white guys who gave her backhanded compliments that revealed some unflattering stereotypes they held about black women.
These guys thought that saying “You’re not loud,” “You enjoy working out,” “You’re educated” and “You’re not a ‘baby mama’” would be flattering to her.
