I think I’m more fascinated with the way Black men go about choosing their White partners as opposed to Black women. Not all Black guys — but historically it seems that there is a need to feel validated by society through the endorsement of White women as partners. Whereas — Black women tend to not be pre-occupied with the burden of demonstrating their worth through the companionship of White men.

Or maybe some Black women feel that urgency but very few — compared to Black men. I’m not opposed to Black men ending up with White women — but it’s interesting to note the pattern of behavior.
