I'm wondering why white women would be so worried about bw snatching up WM when they should be much more worried about non-bw. Sucks to know the pedestal is crumbling beneath you. Oh well...

Asking if a man and woman are physiologically compatible is a blank stare question. I work in a field where percentage of men is much greater than women and I will tell you that there are plenty of slim men who prefer "thick" women and the man's race has NOTHING to do with it. I've seen Asian men who are slim, buff, tall and short so your generalization makes no sense. I've also been around AM who are shy and timid AND AM who will step to someone in a second. It really does go both ways.  It's fine if you are not attracted to AM but stereotyping helps no one. I'm going to agree with ScorpioEnigma09 on this one because I am also one of many slim bw with a behind apple bottom jeans would hang off of. Sorry.

@PatriciaVanelli I was actually thinking the same thing: that the troll may not be an AM because I would HATE to believe that an AM would come to a site specifically geared towards BW dating/married interracially to tell them of his love for white/non-BW, and why BW are so horrible in his eyes, as if we would care. BTW, I think I'm awesome, hardworking and easy to get along with. Also, if ratchet is on one end, I'm all the way at the other one. Note to self-don't feed trolls because they grow.

Yeah, I can recall being very attracted to AM when I was younger and I'm not going to sugar coat it: they were not receptive. Blame it on peer pressure, family tradition etc. but I always though that something was wrong with me doing all of the work letting the ones I was attracted to know of my interest and getting nothing from it. I was never ratchet, did well in school, was in a lot of activities and surrounded myself with like minded friends. Not worth the trouble.

I can assure you that most bw married/dating interracially are with men who stand on their own two feet and who are providers, defenders and who don't choose their happiness over everyone else's.

I agree with you Chris. Life is too short for anyone to spend any time convincing others that they are "not like that". It is much more rewarding to surround ourselves by positive people who are independent thinkers, open-minded, judge people as individuals even if those around them don't, and accepting of us. Life is stressful enough.

I don't necessarily think that African women want to be whiter more than African American women. I just think that African women are less likely to sugar coat their desire for lighter skin by self-diagnosing themselves with so-called "vitiligo" like African American celebrities somehow manage to do. Rather than acknowledge the painful truth that they find it difficult to be proud of being black while at the same time wanting to adhere more to a Eurocentric standard of beauty, African American women would rather be in denial.

I'm a fan of Amerie's music and I do understand your point. However consider the very real possibility that we, as black women, may have daughters who look like them one day since a lot of us are either in IR or are interested in such. May as well celebrate.

I was thinking the same thing about the video. The difference is that when Jessica Williams did it, it was made to seem comical, of course because she is a comedian of some sort. Therefore, viewers did not feel as much empathy and they were laughing! However with the white/Hispanic woman who did the video, it was not portrayed as comical but as a serious matter of what many women have to deal with. If Jessica seriously addressed the issue the same way the other woman did, especially since Jessica's video was made before hers, it would have been exposed how much more dangerous, and far from comical, street harassment is for black women.

I'm definitely a pumpkin pie kind of girl. Growing up I always had sweet potatoe being that my relative's roots are in the south. However after my first slice of pumpkin pie, no sweet potatoe pie compares (except my grandmother's of course). If I had to choose, I would chose pumpkin pie.

I co-sign your last paragraph. I liked black guys when I was younger and my friends would often tease me about liking "those white and Chinese boys". I took no offense. When it came to the black guys I liked, they usually ended up choosing the light-skinned black girl with the long hair or the dark-skinned black girl with the body of a video vixen.

And unfortunately black women are still under that pressure. That would explain, in my opinion, that out of all groups of women who are in IRR's black women face the most criticism. People have a very difficult time and refuse to accept that we deserve to love and be loved by a quality man, regardless of what his color may be. They are PISSED that we are seeing through the lies and refuse to live our lives in a box.

I'm also natural. My eyeshadows, blushes and lipsticks consist heavily of colors which are bold and accentuate my brown skin. I also like to wear brighter colored clothing which bring out my skin tone.
