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.As Ernest Baker points out at Gawker, it is based on years of white dominance in society.Whites are privileged in this society and having what they have serves as validation for a lot of people.
For example, one interracial couple in Houston said they stopped going to country music concerts together.
The typical advice about interracial dating says to “just ignore it.” In reality, it won’t be so easy.
You might have to adjust your relationship to avoid the discomfort and general displeasure of society.
You will hear lyrics about “white bitches” and how successful black men will “leave your ass for a white girl.” Kanye West then went and married a white girl…Yes, women are seen as trophies and markers of success.
This is a huge problem and you need to be aware of it before you enter into an interracial dating relationship with a white woman, especially if you are black.
Your dating life should not conform to what is trending or to what everyone is doing.
