There's a famous photo of a bloodthirsty mob of racist white liberals in Boston using the American flag to try to stab a Black man to death while a crowd of white liberals stands around, doing nothing to help the black man


That happened during an anti-busing protest in the 1970s. In general, it was white liberals that favored busing and whites that were relatively more conservative that were against it. Today the complexion of the areas where the anti-busing sentiment was the strongest is different because of gentrification. Now it's largely yuppies instead of working class families


Honestly, people who go out of their way to date other ethnic groups need to develop a thicker skin and get used to rejection more. There is a reason why an overwhelming majority of people (90+ percent) date and marry their own race. Dating and finding that special someone is already hard enough as it is, why add more road-blocks?


Yes the majority of people date and marry within their own race. But IR relationships are more common among younger people and are generally more accepted now. Some people are simply more physically attracted to other races. It can also depend on geography. If a black or some other non-white person lives in a mostly white area, he or she may not have many chances to date within their own race.

Geography was a part of the reason for the protest. But there was also a segment of the population that didn't want blacks going to the same schools as whites.

Why is the black girl considered "average" in the face to white guys whereas the white girl is hot and pretty to guys?
Personally, I think the black girl is much more attractive and it's not close--not saying the white one isn't attractive though


The black girl in the three images in the link is the OP herself. She's also long gone unless she's created another account. Nevertheless, she has a very high opinion of herself. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but one has to remember that being self-opinionated comes with a whole load of subjectivity that others may disagree with. She said that she personally thinks that she's MORE attractive than the white girl in the picture in her other link. I personally disagree, but that's just my opinion. I don't expect others to fall in or out of line with it.

I guess I am not clear where the OP Has obtained the evidence to support her original hypothesis:
White guys find the white girl more appealing than the "much more attractive" black girl.

As you say, orangetiger, this is a self-assessment. Further, what metrics suggest she (the black girl who originally posted) is being cast aside in favor of the white girl?

There is another thread that laments the way in which a black girl goes out with her beauty-challenged white friend, where the white girl is continuously approached and the black girl isn't.

That comes with a whole host of variables; body language, voice quality, including speech pattern, clothing choices, etc. In short, it is hard to arrange a controlled experiment with such a subjective premise.

Invalid hypothesis, IMO.

The OP didn't obtain any evidence. She was merely fishing for compliments.

I looked at the pictures just now, and they look about the same beauty-wise. The white girl looked more down-to-earth, while the black girl looked classy. For me, down-to-earth women win because I find them to be closer to who I am; being black or white has nothing to do with it,

Statistically black women are the least desirable in online dating along with Black men and Asian Men, OKC did an research article about it, using their own metric data, it's been a couple of years since then but I don't see that trend changing all that much.

If you look at the OP's other thread, she referenced her experience while going out IRL with her white friend. Does the OKC study only apply to on-line? I would think so, since that is the only venue they have for collecting statistics.

The OP was concerned about being appealing to white guys. Are black women the least desirable demographic to all men?

^ Nah, my much younger and very attractive girl friend took a selfie of us and I immediately cropped her out, for obvious reasons. I let her keep an eye, though :)

Not for you maybe. But then you weren't wearing the ball gag trying to enunciate the safe word for 3 hours.

Read her new profile, the three way is with mom. Perhaps the person attached to the eye is mom.
