Hispanic men and white women on interracial dating
“Black men being in short supply means they can dictate the terms of the relationship and they often dictate terms that are not to the woman’s liking.” Let me get this right: one of the reasons why successful Black women should pursue relationships with successful White men is because a successful White man is more likely to create a relationship of “equals” with a Black woman than a Black man because successful White men want nothing more than to be in a relationship with a woman who is his equal?
