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.
Consider all the gay/transgender black men, now we're down to about 9.75 million.
But all those 9.75 million black men have to be single, within a certain age range, emotionally available and meet your standards.
By the time you factor in the married men, fathers, or the elderly, you have a pool of black men less than the size of New York City spread out over 50 states.
Trust me, if we wanted easy, we would not be dating minorities.
And sometimes you surprise yourself and end up being attracted to someone you never thought you would be because they're not traditionally your “type." My white friend who is married to a black man said, “it's just him I fell in love with. " There's this stereotype that white women who date black guys are trying to “show off" or to make white men jealous of black men. Plus, all the males in my family are white and I have nothing but respect for them, so how can I think I'm better than them?
