jperfit saidI donot get why most black dudes want to kick with white dudes, i mean these are the same dudes that complain about discrimination, it doesn't make any sense, i mean their are dudes that are white i think look great but my 1st choice is always a goodlooking,diesel black or latino dude but the black dudes are only interested in hanging with a white guy, not sure what thats about? what do u think?
jperfit, what exactly do you mean by "hanging out" and "kick with white dudes"? I somewhat agree with you if you meant socially like in terms of friendships, I find it kinda odd the ratio of black guys I met and know compared to the white guys I have met and know is like 25:1 (black:white). We gays are pretty segregated IMHO. But, I don't know if this purposely done or just a reflection of U.S. society.
If you meant sexually, I whole heartily agree with you. I find it odd again that I can find men of all races and/or ethnicities attractive. I truly do not understand how someone can rule out a group based on race and/or ethnicities alone
. In my opinion, it shows how much (1) culture defines attractiveness, (2) and how culture shapes one exceptions and preferences-and in order to have a true preference one must try our the object in hand, for example: Some people prefer baked chicken but I prefer honey baroque fried chicken. But how can I "prefer" honey baroque fried chicken over baked chicken if I have never tried bake chicken. So, by previous example, now let us ask how can any particular human being "prefer" one race and/or ethnicity over another with out experience? My answer to this question is that there is a strong possibility
his or her "experience" is typically based deep socialization of what is attractiveness and negative stereotypes. And being that blacks-and especially black men-are typically depicted in very negative light (and that is if blacks are depicted at all) by mainstream media does not help at all.
There was a study done demonstrating that it is more likely for a black man to have sex with another black man and the report stated that observation was NOT due to chance alone. If I can recall correctly this study or another study made the observation that blacks sexual networks are highly interconnected due to segregation and thus this may be why black MSM have a higher prevalence of STDs. Thus, there is evidence to back up your claims, jperfit.
