I Have A Thing For Black Girls


This is a chat up line now?  Erm no.  No, that is not ok.

For one thing what is the thing?  Is it a stereotypical expectation of what a black girl is?  And God, what is that?  Loud and freaky?  Easy?  Overflowing with attitude?  Or is it our bodies?  Curvier, more shapely?  And somehow less likely to dispute such blunt advances as "all I want is a chocolate princess" ?

"A thing for black girls."  What am I, a rare breed?!  A delicacy? What? 

I've suppressed this rant for a long time.  The endless crap chat up lines.   The disregard of my personality; yes I'm a black woman, but does that mean we are compatible, would work or have anything in common?  And then the actual audacity of these men, to get offended that I haven't been blown away by these politically incorrect sentiments. 

"You're the cutest chocolate kid I've ever seen."

"Black girls kiss better."

"I like de black booty dere."

"I want that brown sugar."

"I love black women, let me kiss your feet.  I will pay you."  (Incidentally, I should have taken up this man's offer but I was trying to make a point.)

I can understand men having certain preferences, hell we all do, but being wanted for my skin colour alone simply isn't good enough.  I mean if you're attracted to someone, approach them, start a polite conversation, and listen to them, and then decide whether there is a mutual attraction strong enough to even begin contemplating any form of a relationship.  Rant over.

A little off topic...I changed my hair!  Yay :)
