I’ll start off by saying that I don’t intend for this article to speak for all white women/men or all black men/women.
I exclusively dated white men for many years prior to very recently entering the interracial dating scene. This is new territory for me, but I think it speaks volumes that I’ve already discovered that it comes with certain stereotypes attached. These are some of the stereotypes I’ve witnessed, along with things people have actually said to me, or things I’ve read online.
I’m going to attempt to address and dispel these stereotypes surrounding white women who date black men:
1. We’re not all fat.
According to this Reddit thread, black men go after overweight white women because they have less options, so they take what they can get. Not that celebrities are always accurate depictions of regular people, but a handful of the Kardashians prove this stereotype…

Of course, not all creatively genius black men end up with white women, but those that appear conscious are highlighted so that this assumption is easy to make. For many of these men it is nothing more than proximity. In the case of Donald Glover born on an Air Force base puts him automatically among a majority white population. The demographic breakdown is 70% white, 11% white hispanic, and 8% interracial and 2% black. His first five year old crush will be white girl who will show him affection and begin to stir his feelings. It will then be reinforced by a television crush as the symbol of beauty is the white woman on most forms of media. It will be furthered reinforced in the video games he plays. He will learn racism early because certain white women will desire dating him and confess to him that they cannot because…

The U.S. Department of Education Office has agreed to investigate a violation of girls’ civil rights in Connecticut following a complaint filed in Boston concerning two biologically male transgender teens triumphing over biologically female competitors in high school track.
“The U.S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights Wednesday granted the request of three teen track athletes to investigate their allegations of illegal discrimination,” The Alliance Defending Freedom announced in a press release sent to The Daily Wire.
“Ever since the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Conference [CIAC] adopted a policy that allows biological males who claim a female identity to compete in girls’ athletic events, boys have consistently deprived Selina Soule and two other female athletes of honors and opportunities to compete at elite levels,” the release noted.
ADF is representing the three athletes who filed the complaint in June.
The CIAC policy forced Soule to compete against female-identifying biological males in a high-stakes track competition where two transgender sprinters beat the field, taking first and second place by significant margins. Soule landed in 8th, missing an opportunity to compete in front of college coaches by two places.
“I am very happy for these athletes and I fully support them for being true to themselves and having the courage to do what they believe in,” Soule told host Fox News host Laura Ingraham in February. “But, in athletics, it’s an entirely different situation. It’s scientifically proven that males are built to be physically stronger than females. It’s unfair to put someone who is biologically a male, who has not undergone anything in terms of hormone therapy, against cis-gender girls.”
ADF said the CIAC policy “regularly results in boys out-performing and displacing girls in competitive high-school track events across Connecticut. Throughout the 2018-19 track season, males consistently deprived the female athletes who are part of the complaint of multiple medals, opportunities to compete at a higher level, and the public recognition critical to college recruiting and scholarship opportunities. The complaint notes that CIAC’s policy and its results directly violated the requirements of Title IX, a federal law designed to protect equal athletic opportunities for women and girls.”
“Girls deserve to compete on a level playing field,” ADF Legal Counsel Christiana Holcomb said.
“Forcing female athletes to compete against boys is grossly unfair and destroys their athletic opportunities,” she argued. “Title IX was designed to eliminate discrimination against women in education and athletics, and women fought long and hard to earn the equal athletic opportunities that Title IX provides. Allowing boys to compete in girls’ sports reverses nearly 50 years of advances for women under this law. We shouldn’t force these young women to be spectators in their own sports.”
“Selina and her fellow female athletes train countless hours to shave mere fractions of seconds off their race times. They put in that effort in hope of the personal satisfaction of victory, an opportunity to participate in state and regional meets, or a chance at a college scholarship,” added Holcomb. “But girls competing against boys know the outcome before the race even starts: They can’t win. Boys will always have physical advantages over girls; that’s the reason we have women’s sports.”
A teacher at a middle school in Northern California triggered outrage from parents after he handed out a gender-identity graphic, allegedly to explain why he preferred to be called “Mx” rather than “Mr” on the first day of school.
Luis Davila Alvarado, who teaches seventh and eight grade science at Denair Middle School, used a “Gender Unicorn” graphic from Trans Student Education Resourcesto explain his choice of preferred pronoun to a group of children between the ages of 12 and 14.
Denair Unified School District Superintendent Terry Metzger told The Modesto Bee, “He gave a handout discussing gender in first and second periods. It was not an assignment and students were not required or asked to fill it out.” Metzger acknowledged that parents had not been notified by the district about the handout and Alvarado never asked for permission from the principal, Amanda Silva, but protested, “only a handful of parents have called to express their concern.”
As The Daily Mail noted, a stepparent of one student posted on Facebook, “The teacher said that because he was transgender and the kids had lots of questions, he thought this would be beneficial to them. Which is the most bulls— excuse I’ve ever heard. I don’t care what you identify as, that’s your decision. But NO ONE has the right to ask my child these questions that have absolutely nothing to do with what you are teaching in a classroom.”
Another parent commented, “Let’s say the kids are confused about what to call him/her. How in hell does this … clear up any confusion about him/her?!?! What a crock of s***!” One grandparent told Fox40, “I’ve talked to a lot of parents and a lot of grandparents and I know a lot of them have called the school and complained about it.”
Metzger added that Silva “happened to be in his second-period class as part of her routine visits on the first day of school. When she saw the content of the handout, she spoke with the teacher and directed him to stop distributing it.”
USA Today noted, “Metzger said about 50 students received the handouts before school Principal Amanda Silva stopped the distribution.”
Metzger also explained that although the law requires that gender identity is discussed in health classes, it is not discussed in science classes. She concluded, “The principal and I have spoken with the teacher about why we believe this was a poor decision. Any discipline is a private matter between the district and employee.”
