During a recent interview, Kenya Moore, fresh off of being dumped by her Millionaire Matchmaker beau, was asked about the subject of dating, more specifically interracial dating.
“For Black women, we just have to be open because there’s not a lot of eligible bachelors, that are Black, for us to choose from anymore,” Moore stated.
Forget about the fact that many people think Moore is coo-coo for cocoa-puffs, but her opinion isn’t too far-fetched for SOME Black women. And I emphasis “SOME” because we all know there are those Black women out there who choose to chase after any man, just as long as he’s NOT Black.
But I digress.
But where in the world is there a lack of Black men? Living in the D.C. area, and working in the city, there are swarms of Black men. From the military types to the corporate types to the government employees. And hell, if you’re into the thuggy types, well, there’s plenty of those to choose from also.
And you know, I definitely understand the fact that just because you want to choose a Black man, doesn’t mean he’ll want to choose you. And that’s when you say ‘on to the next one’.
Personally, I’m of the ilk that most men fall into the ‘ain’t shit’ category. And I’m not ashamed to say it. I’ve met ‘ain’t shit’ Black men, ‘ain’t shit’ White men, and even an ‘ain’t shit’ Asian guy. What’s important to me is finding that diamond in the rough who can prove to me that there are worthy men out there, regardless of background.
Clutchettes, do you think there aren’t enough Black men out there for Black women to choose from?
