What to know about dating a black man
As a guideline, it’s best not to ask a black woman if her hair is natural or if she has a weave. Again, you don’t need to know what we’ve done to our hair, we’re not looking for you to DO our hair. And then keep your eyes and ears open and listen to her when she shares with you when you do/say something racist. You can get through it, it could even draw you closer.
BUT, if she’s unresponsive, it may not be because she’s uninterested.
We’ve all heard the rumors, read the studies, seen the porn. It’ll also be a chance for you to potentially check some of your white friend’s white privilege if you decide to do so.
This, my white brother, is how the world will start to heal btw. You don’t need to dress in a particular way, listen to a particular kind of music or eat a certain kind of food to date a black woman.
We’re not saying older men will be completely inflexible but you shouldn’t think you can change their ways once you’re in a relationship.
That’s not to say they will completely lack a youthful mindset: a study by Nickelodeon UK found that men remain ‘immature’ well into their early 40s, while women mature at an average age of 32 We use cultural references to express who we are and where we’ve come from.
