As you can see that Halle Berry married a white man because she couldn't find any black men to treat her like a queen. I have noticed that too many black athletes marry white women and not there own kind. Also Ive seen black women involved with a man and then once he become successful he decide to leave her for a white woman. Do you think black women should stop dating black men?
W another thing there are many black women dating white men. Oh and just because I would rather marry a black man don't think I never interact with white men. I have had many white men throw passes at me its just I would rather date black men. However I believe that black women don't give themselves enough options. LOL Kevin I mean very very dark skin and white people are not attractive. That's only true if you over look them too much. I don't know why white women age so fast though it must be something to do with their skin.
You cant see very very very darkskin people lol. I dont even want to date black men anymore though. Did you notice that white women only date the dark skin black men never the very fair ones it must be light people are close to white people.
Halle Berry is black because once your black your black lol. No really if I go around saying Im half white thats so wrong. You cant be both honey.
I assure my cousins they are white because they look more white me Im brown so I say Im black duh. I have white family memebers and grandmother but I will not say Im white you cant be two you have to pick honey. Show me something I dont know lol.
Yes O'Js are ignorant and racist Im telling my man that if he dare watch any more football I will leave him for a white man. He is making me sick to think of him becoming a pro and leaving me for some trash. Trophy wives, they are called. That's the Slave mentality of a Black man not liking themselves. White women have always been put on a Pedestal. While Slave Masters were raping young Black Slave girls the Black Slave man was lusting over the white Mistresses, something they couldn't have.
The Black man couldn't compete with the white man during that time. The white mistresses always lust for the physically fit Black Slave men, something they wasn't allowed to have. That's call stepping up in his world of thinking.
Why do so many black athletes marry white women?
Not knowing all along the white man is laying low, waiting on him to step out of line with his white trophy wife, so he can bring him back down to his Black level.You see it time and time again. The media's obsession with always broadcasting Black professional athletes and their girlfriends, baby mamas, mistresses and wives who happen to be of a different race. Particularly when their significant other happens to be white.
The images below are what you generally see in the media constantly Tiger Woods and well any of his girlfriends. Pic of Tiger and ex-wife Elin. Michael Jordan and his fiance. Michael Strahan and his ex-wife. Michael is now with Eddie Murphy's ex-wife, they have been together for years.
Nicole Murphy is black. Cristiano Ronaldo. Nick Collison. Dirk is known to like Chocolate. Dirk and ex-fiance Cristal Taylor, now this was in the news because Cristal was arrested on theft charges.
Alrighty then. Steve Nash Professional basketball player who plays point guard for the Phoenix Suns. Steve Nash and his current girlfriend Brittany Richardson. Brian Urlacher. Todd Herremans. Kurt Angle. Naomie also dated her co-star Orlando Bloom briefly. Shia Labeouf.It was titled, Black Women are not Uncoachable, they are Unprotected. As a black woman myself, I took great interest in the topic. For it was one that needed to be addressed.
Upon first reading it, my heart instantly dropped into my stomach. Too many times I have seen this question and too many times I have seen the same answer. The biggest difference is that a white woman knows her position and accepts her role as a woman and lets her man lead.
You can never get better at anything unless you can admit your fears and your mistakes. Black women are not coachable. As I read these words, a mix of sadness and anger washed over me.
Black celebrity men who’ve married White women
I could feel the heat in my face and the pounding of my heart. Too often have I seen this mentality from not only black sportsmen but black men in general. Subscribe to our Newsletter Thank you for signing up!

From billboards to dolls to businesses to TV and so on and so on, white people are advertised all throughout the country. The straight blonde hair and the sparkling blue eyes have captivated American beauty. Over the accumulated years of a homogenous media, blacks understand that they are not beautiful.
They develop a self-hatred and see their blackness as a sickness. Wars such as light skin vs. Society has set up social constructs. And one of those constructs was creating the perfect woman: submissive, quiet, appeals to the man, gentle, white, etc. These characteristics are of an ideal woman and anything outside of that understanding is unattractive. An unattractiveness that has poisoned mankind against black women. The divide between black men and black women has become apparent over the years.That line is also based on a very popular and very compelling lie.
Date the rainbow! Shit, date a pack of Skittles! Anyway, we exist today at a time when many of our most prominent black male athletes are very outspoken about racial-justice issues.
Today, however, when you list the black male athletes who are legitimate superstars with immediately recognizable names and faces and millions in endorsements—men such as LeBron James, Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Chris Paul, Dwyane Wade—none of them have hesitated to use their platforms to speak up. Wade and Michael Bennett are married, and each of the five is married to a black woman.
Now, speaking out about just racial bias and police brutality is better than saying nothing about anything, but I would like to see these men use their considerable platforms and influence to support issues that disproportionately affect women and LGBTQ people, too.
Are these men more active because the black women in their lives are urging them to be? Or did these men choose to marry black women because they were already community-minded? Who knows? The A.

Society has come a long way from when interracial marriages were first legalized throughout the United States, thanks to the Loving vs. Virginia decision. People of all races and ethnicities are now free to intermingle with one another, but such relationships still come with a fair share of objections and complications.
Social media has shown that many Black Americans take issue with interracial dating and marriages, and this has particularly become obvious when it comes to famous Black men.
Actor Michael B. Jordan experienced backlash on social media and blogs after being photographed with White women who he was suspected of dating, along with saying other questionable things in relation to Black women.
According to the most recent census data on interracial marriages, only 17 percent of Black Americans marry outside of their race.
While this data shows that Black people are more likely to marry each other instead of someone of another race, many concerned women still feel that men with an immense amount of wealth and fame tend to marry non-Black women more often.
Some women think this is problematic because the wealth should stay within the Black community, where it is greatly needed. Others feel Black men should want to celebrate becoming a success with the same kind of woman who was likely supportive of them before they made it big — a Black woman.
Here is a list of Black men who married White women — including some who surprisingly had Black spouses early on, but left them for White women, and others who tied the knot with their high school sweetheart who happened to be White. The couple had an extremely public fall out when Nordegren discovered Woods was cheating with over a dozen women and she forcibly kicked him out of their home.
Tiger Woods does not identify as black. Why bother to include him? Also, who cares if these men found happiness with white spouses? This seems like an article from The narrative of the successful black man marrying the blond white trophy wife is false.
Statistics show that black men do not marry or date outside of their race more than any other man does. Thank you…. Stay your ass outside! There are a few Black women. Has little to do with happiness. Sadly not much has changed since Black men of wealth tend to marry outside of their race which makes the topic provacative.
Is it a fact that money changes who you are? The Kardashans are Armenian, which are people of color, and so are Cubans. People are entitled to marry who they please, but when Armenians and Cubans try to come to Americans they are not treated as though they are White Americans. I guess money changes your ethnicity. If you are a poor Armenian or Cuban, you are considered a person of color, but when you are wealthy, you are considered a white person.
Those are terms to create systems of inequality. We all have varied levels of pigmentation. When it comes to their race, we consider it white. The kardashians look middle eastern, but even many middle easterners and arabs are considered white.My dating resume is pretty typical; it consists of a few long term relationships and a couple meaningless flings.
If one were to go through each relationship in my past however, it would become obvious that all of my past love interests except for one have been white. I also know that at the end of the day, my heart has made its choice and I have to respect that. First of all, I grew up in McLean, Virginia. Although the DC metropolitan area is fairly diverse, the student body at my old high school is currently The demographic was probably just as skewed when I attended school.
McLean H. I never had that early experience of being with someone that was both racially similar to me and also compatible with me. I do have friends of other races, but my friend group is primarily white. I love them and have great experiences with them, but it does affect where we may go out on weekends and what kind of guys we attract into our circle. Some people would perhaps find this flattering, but rest assured that the way they look at me would make most women run for the hills.
The reoccurring themes of infidelity, abuse, and lack of financial stability all permeate my memories and they do affect my ability to trust black men. I think of cousins and specifically my brother who are genuinely great guys and I do feel incredibly guilty and sad that I feel this way regarding my own race. I want them to be viewed as suitable partners and to be given a fair opportunity when it comes to love.
I hope to work through my general perception of the black male and to also better separate my interactions with strangers versus my interactions with potential love interests. I know various friends of mine who have parents that are still not exactly okay with their children dating outside of their own race. I could simply meet anyone and see if we were compatible. Dating someone of a different race gives you the opportunity to learn about their culture and values; it also provides you with a more intimate insight into their racial differences.
He has in turn shared his cultural background with me as he is part Lebanese. I find the cultural exchange to be interesting and incredibly beneficial to the relationship as a whole. How cute, No 7 is my fav! Im currently teaching my white boyfriend the same thing. However, I am proud to say he now knows what oil is best, why we use oil, why he cannot shower as I straighten my hair, etc. Sign up for the Thought Catalog Weekly and get the best stories from the week to your inbox every Friday.

We have not hesitated to tell others of our experience and now find some friends and family have now added it to their 'bucket list'.
Hilmar made scheduling the trip very easy.
The emails were very prompt and once we arrived, we were able to continue adding activities at the last minute with no trouble. The buses to and from sites were very nice and the guides were all so enthusiastic and friendly.
Iceland is beautiful in the winter. The staff and quality of the tour and accommodation made it an excellent experience of Iceland.
Iris Angela did a wonderful job putting it together for us. We all have great memories of our trip. Everything was truly wonderful.
The trip was amazing from the very beginning. From our pick up at Keflavik to our departure home, the tours were all amazing. Signy did an amazing job, and the added champagne and chocolates when we arrive (we were there for our honeymoon) were just so sweet.
This was only my second time out of the United States, the first gong to Indonesia where my sister-in-law lived and provided all guidance.
Booking a trip like this was daunting for me but I was blessed to have Larus as my travel consultant. Larus always responded quickly to my questions and inquiries, and provided expert advice which were dead on accurate and helpful.
With Larus I never felt I was doing this alone and felt informed.
I feel I need to credit Larus with a lot of the success of our trip. What Nordic Visitor provides travelers with is very impressive.
It seems that a lot of homework is done to scout out fantastic places to stay and make reservations for.
From the moment we found their Iceland Winter World itinerary, we were sold on the price and the tour.
Looking at the package offerings, we discovered they had built an itinerary around nearly every major site we had wanted to see in Iceland, and had taken the guesswork out of lodging arrangements and tour bookings.
On top of their already great itinerary, Larus did an outstanding job of creating enough flex in the schedule to allow us to do some additional day trips.
There was also a great balance of activities and leisure time in the city, which we really appreciated.
The communication at every step of the process was excellent and timely.
Larus answered our questions clearly, and made suggestions that were in our best interest. The documents the company provides you upon bookIng and arrival are well-laid out and helpful.
Nordic Visitor also did a fantastic job of selecting vendors that aligned with their commitment to excellence, as we were very pleased with our lodgings and tour operators.
I feel certain our trip with a group of seven adults of varying ages and interests would not have been nearly as enjoyable, had it not been for Nordic Visitor's expertise in selecting a great hotel location and professional, courteous tour operators that took the angst out of international travel.
From the moment we arrived at the airport, we didn't have to think about a thing as we were whisked off everywhere we needed to be in the most timely manner possible.
Our family has already discussed returning to Iceland someday, and the first place I will look in planning that next trip will be with Nordic Vi Elizabeth, Canada Iceland Full Circle - Winter, October 2013 Made the booking experience very easy Our tour was extremely well organized and Hilmar was always polite, quick with his responses, and made the booking experience very easy.
He was able to book tours in advance and even suggested we wait to arrive to book some weather-dependent experiences.
He provided valuable information and recommendations and we doubt we would have had as unforgettable an experience without his guidance.
We were very happy to find that all of our transportation was on time (mostly early) and comfortable. The guides were friendly and answered any questions that we had.
