Society already has these ill-prepared, mapped out steps for you because of the race you identify with. If you're a black woman who has ever dated a different race, you probably stumbled across one – or maybe more – of these erratic fears along the way. But when you consider the fact that you're dating a different race as a black woman, it delves a little deeper into the historically painful days of discrimination.
My non-black friends typically receive right swipes from every Tom, Dick and Harry.All I knew was that as someone painfully shy around men, dating in the real world, in New York City, felt downright impossible.If anything, this was a way for me to gauge my own interest, and to date in a way that felt a bit more intentional, a bit more on my own terms.So, a black woman could be hesitant to date another race for fear of being judged even more. For those who still consider stereotypes to be fact, black women are framed as hypersexual, exotic women. But it can be specific at times, depending on the person who penetrates that circle of connectedness.A black woman does not want disapproval from this circle just because she brought an “outsider” to join the ranks.
