Black men not dating black women
While I do believe Jess deserves the criticism she has been getting, I have not seen black men run to defend her or protect her.
She was a chatty and congenial Aussie, with a distinctive no-bullshit edge. And a number of biracial celebrities — including Alicia Keys, Drake, Halle Berry, and Wentworth Miller — were born to white mothers and black fathers.
She must have read my mind when she made the disclaimer about finding white men attractive, too. She was a “chocolate queen,” but she was open to other flavors. But from a distance, I’ve noticed that when a straight white woman dates a straight black guy, it’s less likely to be part of a pattern, her were TV’s first interracial married couple, and they were played by Franklin Cover, a white actor, and Roxie Roker, a black actress who was also married to a white man offscreen (TV producer Sy Kravitz, rocker Lenny’s dad).
And her high praise included black women — that underdog demo that, Beyoncé aside, is often overlooked by whites with a down-with-blacks sexual agenda. I can’t recall ever previously having had a conversation with a white woman who dates black men about dating black men.
Between white supremacy and sexism, black women only have each other.
White supremacy is often cited as a factor that prevents black people from progressing.
But black men are not coming to Jess’ defense the way they are with Julz, despite Jess being part of their own community.
