While most people reacted to the depiction of the aggressive black woman in the Pepsi Max Super Bowl commercial, I was actually more fascinated with the depiction of the timid white woman. I literally laughed out loud when shorty went upside that white girl’s head with that can. As soon it as it was over though, I knew there would be some scuttlebutt about how that black woman was depicted, and why did it have to be a white woman jogging, blah, blah, blah…
That scene may have played out in real life to some yuppie chick running through a metropolis park, but I know a lot of white girls that would have tried to trip that black chick and grabbed some hair throwing windmill punches until the cops showed up. Go ahead…throw an empty soda can at the next white woman you see…tell me what happened…
If you ask most black women why black men date outside their race (read: white women), the most popular answer would be that they’re “easy”, followed closely by “they can’t handle a strong black woman”, which may be the cases in some instances. But there are black women out there that are just as “easy” if not “easier” than white women. There are black women out there that will continue to let the man in their life walk all over them, talk to them any way they damn please, and the list goes on. Conversely, I’m pretty sure there are white women out there that roll their necks and give their opinions in Z formation, don’t give head at all or give you just enough to shut you the f*ck up, and I’m pretty sure a few of them bought Steve Harvey’s book and now abide by a 90 day rule. So, to suggest that white women are the only ones with these problems and that black men flock to them because they can get away with sh*t that black women wouldn’t even let them think about is pretty ridiculous. There may be some things that white women do differently in relationships that black men may find appealing, but there are lines that most women have that just can’t be crossed.
Some men only date white women, some only date Asian women, tall women, short women, dark skinned women, men dressed as women (mostly in ATL, DC, and SF) just like women choose to only date men that make X amount of money, or are tall, short, muscular etc. It’s just a preference. And while it may annoy you that a black man chooses to date outside his race, it’s also foolish to fixate on a segment of the population that clearly has no interest in you. If this same man chose to date black women, he may prefer them in a certain size, shape and color that you may not fit and he’d overlook you anyway. So what’s really the difference? Maybe some black men actually love nothing better than a freshly tanned brunette whose hair smells like
hope Garnier Fructis.
Men are rather simple creatures, so if white women were really that much easier to deal with, black men would have run for the hills eons ago Harlem Nights style. For that matter, white men wouldn’t constantly drop them like hotcakes. I’m tired of
black women people getting up in arms about black men dating white women, and the “can’t handle a real woman” nonsense is tired. Maybe those of you that think white women are easy should sit down with one for coffee, exchange notes, and re-evaluate your definition of “easy.”
