Trouble With The Swirl: My Boyfriend Was Ashamed Of Me Because I’m Black

Black-woman-white-man

I learned that love isn’t blind the hard way. “I didn’t think you’d want to know.” This was how my boyfriend of three years told me that he was leaving me for a different girl. A white girl. As I watched him struggle with what to say, I remembered that I had seen them together around campus […]

Lifetime_Devious-Maids_0_Setting-the-Table_111860_LF_HD_768x432-16x9

About three years ago, I penned a piece on SBM titled, Are Black Men Obsessed with Latinas? Since today effectively ends Hispanic Heritage Month, I thought I would post it again with some thoughts three years removed. I want to note that since 2010, I really haven’t done any articles about Latinas because I thought […]

An Anonymous Black Man Explains Why He Prefers Non-Black Women

Sistas

For amusement, I sometimes look at Craigslist ads. I fish through the Men Seeking Women section to read posts to see what some men are looking for in women.  There are many anatomically correct parts on full display in the attempt for hookups and many married men seeking a friend.

Here’s Why I Wouldn’t Recommend a Black Man Date White Women

Lot of you woulda smashed, but later regretted it.

I don’t have to tell you much about why I would write a post on this topic.  I was surprised one day when I was dismissed from a conversation about dating white women by a group of Black women who said, “Shut up, we know you’re the type to date white women.” And … everyone […]

I Love Chelsea Handler

Let me preface this post by saying this will be more ignorant than Rza. For those of you who don’t listen to Kanye West or hip-hop, because I know most of you roll together, Rza makes that track when he says, “Champagne wishes and thirty white b*tches!”  One time me and my boy are hanging […]

Where have all the good black men gone?

Apparently all the good black men are MIA.  The topic of brothers and bunnies has been discussed and explored since the days of slaves defying massa to get him some pinkfoot.  “Why that fool Jebediah keep messin’ wit massa daughta?  Don’t he know massa gon kill him?”  Well thanks to the Emancipation Proclamation, brothers don’t […]
