I agree.

White(European)  men generally don't like black women.

Lies and fallacy.

I'm confused about the titles...

I asked cus I remember blks born and raised in Europe liking me, Africans who had moved there.. And American blks who had moved there.. But wasn't sure about what to call them all



that would be quite confusing since europe is made up of different countries. im thinking even if they did have labels, it would be specific to countries (spanish black...british black?), nah, come to think of it, none of that would make sense...


I said Europe because it happened in more than one country.
France and Italy mainly... Africans who had moved.. Americans blks who had moved.. And ppl born and raised there (France)

They are distinctive yet subtle differences… I think. 
I think we like to believe that we are these crazy unique people who operate as a self contained unit… but thats not true.
 
These Cultural distinctions can be broken down into what we find attractive 
through music / our taste in foods / Even as detailed as a particular smell that a group 
or culture might find more appealing. 

You can point to anecdotal or general views but theres always a lot of research being conducted
by multinational companies trying to tap into the heart strings of a particular culture. For ex. A jeep Ad in the states will be far different from a Jeep Ad in China. 

Even our love languages are different. According to this book called The Culture Code … "American Culture" is an adolescent culture, so maybe home girl was right in her personal assessment of European men being more "mature". But Americans tend to be these wildly innovative pioneering immigrant assholes who are still in some ways afraid of expressing their sexuality.

they talk about the fish bowl theory as well. Americans stare at a fish tank and see the biggest fish.
Japanese, not so much. They tend to focus more on the surroundings. 

But the proof is that these ads were successful in targeting larger segments of a particular culture.

This really doesn't surprise me after she did a movie with bitter ass Kevin Hart.

Are we the only race that gets out of a bad relationship and thinks another race is the answer not just a different man?

I'm totally biased having never dated outside my race but I hear the same things from women who do.  Fall in love and shut up.  If you're in love then we're happy for you but that has nothing to do with my AA brothers.


I praised the Lord in the library for this brilliance right here lol

There is no American culture....I think that's the whole point of America.
There is an AA culture though.

LOL, I'm pretty sure she'll tell you she's black. My mother is from Guadeloupe, so technically she is French (although she does not care for the label much. She always had a staunchly anti-colonial mindset). People tend to forget about Martinique and Guadeloupe. The French are racist pricks though. I cannot believe that anyone would uphold French men as the answer to all black women's woes. That makes me double over in laughter. I mean, really?
