Successful minorities love to say, “You're privileged but I'm so smart and awesome and financially secure that I have the same, if not better, house, car, and woman as you.”Need evidence that some black men see dating a white woman as a sign of their success?
Just listen to the lyrics of rap music from the likes of Kanye West, Chris Brown, We Dem Boyz, or Wiz Khalif.
Don’t proceed to date interracially because your colleagues, friends, and relatives are doing that and you don’t want to be the odd one out.
There are a number of reasons that I’ll advise you on why you should not date interracially, including gaining social status.
Dating interracially for wrong and misguided reasons will lead to problems you won’t run away from. Some people from minority social groups look for mates from a dominant culture to upgrade their social status.
Of course, this isn’t always the case – but you should be prepared for it. When the white protagonist in the movie starts a relationship with a black guy, the guy’s female friend responds with:“White girls like you, creeping up, taking our men — the whole world ain't enough, you've got to conquer ours too.”Sarah James talks about this in her article for the Huffington Post.
She puts the comment in the context by pointing out that Other stats show that 42% of black women are unmarried – which leads you to understand why black women might feel like a white woman is “creeping up” on their men.
As Ernest Baker points out at Gawker, it is based on years of white dominance in society.
