Dating a angry black male
Last night I caught wind of an interview Iyanla Vanzant did with three black men of various age groups (20’s, 30’s, 40’s) who refused to date black women, citing reasons such as we’re all angry, we hate black men who don’t dress like thugs, and so many of us are so sexually hyperactive that a man who chooses to be celibate can’t find ANYONE who will go on that journey with him. The time is over when black women wring their hands and bite their fingernails worried about their perpetual single hood, trying to hit the ever-moving target about that they need to “change” about themselves in order to find a Good Black Man™️.All those books written by black men with questionable motives coaching black women to lower their standards and go to the Build-a-Brother Workshop are no longer needed by many black women who have put up deuces, gotten off the hamster wheel, and entertain the idea of dating men of all races who will celebrate them, and not simply tolerate them.Times when the husband would receive lashes from the master; who was there to heal his wounds?When the oldest son was hung for stealing food; who was there to secure the emotional stability of the family?So, instead of shying away from being open with those expectations, it’s always best to confront the subjects that must be broached in order to establish a healthy, committed and honest relationship. What do you think about the #blacklivesmatter movement?Do yourself a favor and ask potential partners these 18 questions to figure out if he may possibly be “the one.” 1. Not only will you glean many insights about yourself and your own personality, but it can help you consider whether or not you and your potential partner are a good match. Sometimes individuals are emotionally and mentally ready for committed relationships. When it comes to men, they will infrequently lie about what they are looking for, if you dare to ask. This especially applies to dates with non-black men. A man with very rigid ideas of masculinity or femininity best be able to live up to those ideas, or he’ll likely take it out on you or become depressed/despondent when his ability to “provide” is challenged (as it often is for black men in this society).Dating is quite tricky, especially for heterosexual black women.With the prevailing stereotypes of the “angry black woman,” many of us don’t like to be too forward or ask too many questions out of fear that they may seem pushy and turn a man off.
After a busy day of revealing exercises and emotional sessions to explore what's really at the heart of their anger, the women of the House of Healing retire indoors to relax before attending a mixer at the house with some surprise guests.It follows that they are also the least likely to date outside of their race. Not only that, but my only serious relationship has been with a man outside of my race.These relationships were no different than those in my racial category except for one dirty little issue: race.I think Black men don’t take the time to recognize this.To date, Black women literally stand on the front lines of the Black Lives Matter movement while we demonize them and glorify the Kim Kardashian or the world. Women, particularly white women, would use college as a way to find a husband.
