So I'm hearing Lil'Wayne has no love for us dark girls. This news is probably so last year for most people but I'm just getting the memo. Let's get my view on the issue quickly before we move on to the crux of this blog:
Lil Wayne, you little, Uncle Ruckus, darkkies hating shit. How you gon be racist to your own people? Your mama black as shit and Reginae black too! Toya is the best you will ever do in your country ass life. But keep running around shitting on good women. Memphitz knows what to do with that Toya Booty!
Well, now that I've given some free, none existent publicity (any publicity is good publicity,right?) to the show; Toya on BET, moving on.
Yeah, so that's how I feel about lil' Wayne's stupid ass.(All you rap heads can hit me up with your 'Wayne is the best thing since sliced bread' crap. See if I give a damn!) So what was I saying? Yes, dating pool. I read a seriously hilarious post called Give the white boy some ass too! or something to that effect and I had just finished writing this post. I laughed so hard and the guy captured my emotions to a tee. His post was so similar to this albeit a bit too gangster. Funny. So funny.
Anyways, It would be terribly unfair to deem Lil'Wayne a persona non grata because of this little tidbit. I know for a fact that ALL, yes, I said ALL, black men want to get with white or light skinned (call them half caste or mixed race or whatever) women. It is ingrained in their DNA. "Naah ah, not my boo. He loves me and I'm as black as it gets" Honey, yes, your man. His wanting to get with white or light skinned women has nothing to do with his love for you but everything to do with satisfying a morbid curiosity.
I went to school in a predominantly white town. And the black boys completely ignored we the black sisters and were dating white, asian and mixed race girls. I used to get sooooo mad at this! Interracial dating pissed me the hell off. But it was sometimes funny. My friend S.O, stumbled on the funniest scene ever in a market in London: a black guy taking his Chinese wifey through the market and showing her the food he likes and their yoruba names. Eg. "This is okro. It is called ila in yoruba and I love it. I'm going to teach you how to make it." Awwww sweet! I'm sure my friend felt like stalking them through the market. But she didn't. She's not creepy. I would have, tho. You know that Chinese girl is not really trying to learn how to make no damn okro. You better love eating Chinese food cos that's all you will be getting. Okro ko, edikaikong ni.
Basically, Nigerian men condone us blackkies whilst they are here because.... they have no choice! The white/mixed race community in Nigeria really don't like dealing with black people. Why? They just don't . A friend took me to a club in VI that apparently just started letting black people in. This was in 2008. We were being Jim Crowed in our own country. It was meant to be a place for the expatriates to chill without any darkkies popping up in their faces. If you don't like darkkies, I suggest you move back to your country. Simplez.
So when these Nigerian men get the opportunity to hop accross the pond to some whitey country; and it does not matter which sweaty armpit of Europe they end up in, it is on the agenda that white tail must be acquired. It is as normal as visiting tourist sites. Madam Toussauds, London eye, white girl. That's how it goes. They become like kids in the freaking candy store. So many options so little time. And white women too have heard that black men are "packing" (I've had A LOT of them asking me to confirm the truthfulness of this myth. I've neither confirmed nor denied, so my black brothers, on my part, I've done my bit to keep the illusion unshattered) so they want to investigate, and presto, you have a pot of steamy hot interracial, jungle fever dating. It is not the drama black men are scared of. Infact, I go as far as to say they like the drama and they were happy to put up with it. It is the white and they know it.
So we dress well, we are loud and we look like we can break shit. So, yeah, a tad intimidating for white boys (except Eminem sha)
That's a sweet thing to do, don't you agree? I personally feel white boys can be all out sugary sweet and not care about it. A man, that can break out a guitar and burst into songs (composed by him) in a room filled with his underlings and superiors, alike, has no shame in his game! Black men are too concious about their image and not appearing "pussy whipped" to try spontaneous sweetness like that. That's not to shit on my mandingo brethren. They can be sweet, in their own way but I doubt if it would be something as 'gay' as that. An ex once cooked me something to eat with his non-cooking ass. I didn't say "get the fuck outta here! Are you trying to kill me????" I smiled as I forced the half cooked rice with broken egg shells (yes, he had tried to boil an egg too by boiling it in the rice. Can't cook worth a damn but he's going to be Chef Boyardee and multi-task on the day he cooks for me *rolling eyes*) down my throat at the risk of the egg shells ripping apart my voice box. I had to encourage him. That was the height of his niceness. He had never cooked and I got him to cook for me. Wow. Mind blowing.....not!!!
All I'm saying is, black women should not be so hung up on always dating black men. Sometimes, your true love lies with another race. Please go for it. It would be dumb not to. Don't let your racist mother (we know they are all racist) jealous friends or hating ass brother or ex tell you otherwise. The time has come to widen our dating circles and stop the "us against them" mentality. If a black boy is not cutting the mustard and a white boy is begging to be your every, please chuck up the deuces to that idiot and keep it moving. You'll be glad you did. I know it is easier said than done. Particularly if you live in Nigeria, where the pickings are slim. I'm just saying on the off-chance that it happens, don't scorn it. Explore it. Open yourself up to possibilities. You really never know.
Disclaimer: this is not a blog justifying what our 'sisters' are getting up to in Italy or even here in Nigeria sef. Those ones are hoes! Judgmental??? Good. That was my intention. I'm actually talking about falling in love not relieving some fat Egyptian man of his Forex after you've been fondling his man boobs. Eeewww! No diss Egypt. Love the Sphinx.
