I hope that doesn’t make me racist but honestly that’s the 1st thing I think of (white male respondent) This respondent is middle-class with no black female friends, rare interactions with black families growing up, and who states his interactions with black women only consist of work-related experiences, yet, he expresses strong racialized, gendered, and classed views of black women as the first impressions that come to his mind.
Another respondent, a middle class white male in his 40’s stated the following about black women and attraction: Sexual attraction for me is a combination of physical and personal attributes.

The longstanding persistent exclusion of black women as a heterosexual relationship partner for white men (and other men of color) continues to exist in a society that today prides itself on colorblindness and even post-raciality.
Quantitative polls that measure racial attitudes of whites today show a marked decrease in racial hostilities, however, these polls do not account for the complexities of frontstage and backstage racism, whereby whites manipulate racial performances for the settings that they are in. To understand the phenomenon of black women’s consistent exclusion by white men, I examined 134 contemporary white men’s thoughts, opinions, perspectives, and emotional reactions to black women as they expressed in in-depth online questionnaires.

In fact, I have myself been working on a book entitled “Why White Women Love Black Men,” though my publisher has suggested I change the title to “You Stupid Bitch, WTF is Wrong with You?
They are accused of raping the woman while another man, Rodney Cooper, 32, stood guard outside a room in a house where the woman was attacked.
It is also, as the book asserts, a status symbol for Black men that they got a White girl. Interestingly, I watch the Breakfast Club a lot, which is a Black talk show available on You Tube (I highly recommend it for anyone interested in examining the psychology of Black people), and the female side-host of the show (or whatever you call that, she isn’t really a “co-host”), Angela Yee (who has a Chinese father somehow) is obsessed with asking the male guests, generally rappers and Black actors, if they date White women.
Almost all of them will say no, they prefer Black women, indicating that Persaud’s assertion that this is a way for Black men to boost their self-esteem is true, as already successful Black men are not interested in interracial dating (this could also be partly due to the fact that successful Black men have access to the most attractive Black females, while the average Black male has to deal with fat Black women, and a fat White woman is more attractive to a Black male than a fat Black one).
