Though a very sensitive subject, there exist acrimonious hostilities when Black men date / marry White women. Some Black women have vehemently voiced their concerns because the available pool of Black women end up playing second fiddle – if not losing out altogether. Who wants to become a lonely old maid?
The Black man / White woman matches are more common than the inverse. Either Black women will have to cross the racial divide to even up the score or the numbers will inevitably escalate. For sure the ubiquitous statement, “Once you go Black, you will never go back;” undoubtedly has dual application regardless of gender. Because of the taboos and apprehensions of being called a racist, this dating topic may on some days be “hush, hush,” but resentfully broadcasted when another eligible Black man is snatched. Thus, the Black / White woman clash uncivilly continues with no end in sight.
