Now don’t get it twisted, I am not a woman who will bash black men. I feel that black men are precious and rich with history and pride. As a whole, I’m aware of all the negativity associated and the need for some to tear down the black man. I just feel that character is so much more important than good looks. Deciding to get to know somebody from another culture/country is a step forward in bridging the gap. Yes, we all get that “butterfly” feeling when somebody, whom we find hot/sexy, flirts or engages in conversation. I’m saying that you shouldn’t write off dating another BC of the cultural differences. Take some time to read the post and recognize that real love doesn’t care about body type, model looks or wallet size. It only cares about what’s inside.
