I know this subject matter has been debated ad nauseum. I am not here to debate the rightness or wrongness of interracial dating. I am curious about a particular phenomenon that is making its waves over the Internet.
There is a rise in dating sites, blogs, and forums focused specifically on black women dating white men. I read Siditty's blog and she has a lot of interesting sometimes heated discussions on the subject matter. I actually got this post idea from reading one of her posts.
I clicked on this one site from a commenter (white) and his entire site was devoted to his love of black women. For some reason, this did not sit right with me. I am a black woman and its good to be loved but is this kind of singularity just shy of fetishism.
I also question why I even feel this way. I ran across another blog from an African American blogger who proclaims why he loves black women. Is this any different? Should I feel just as uncomfortable with his exclusive devotion to black women. Should the race even matter when it comes to love?
I don't know, but I thought I would ask the question.
