Not that celebrities are always accurate depictions of regular people, but a handful of the Kardashians prove this stereotype to be false.
It also could just be that black men appreciate women who don't have a certain body type.
Black Panther—directed by Ryan Coogler and starring Chadwick Boseman, Lupita N’yongo, Angela Bassett, Danai Gurira, Forest Whitaker, and Daniel Kaluuya—is about the fight to save and protect the African nation of Wakanda from a vengeful Killmonger whose family was exiled by T’Challa (Boseman).
Not only is this silver screen masterpiece the first Marvel franchise to have a Black superhero lead and feature a primarily all-Black cast, it is also the first time our community has seen representation at this magnitude.
Who can really keep up appearances for that long just to prove a point?No, we are not all just trying to see if the rumors about black men are true; there are websites for that.Interracial marriages were only legalized in the United States 50 years ago, which means that when a black man and white woman walk down the street holding hands in certain parts of the country, they are still going to get glared at.At the core of the double standard, many Black women still see Black men’s decision to date outside the bounds of race as an extension of their continual lack of support and love for their own female counterparts.Even if some of us believe MBJ dating a non-Black woman is a slap in the face (which, let’s be clear, most of us don’t even care), we always show up to support what’s in our community’s best interest.Plus, if Black women began boycotting every piece of art by a Black man who chose to rock a non-Black woman on his arm, we’d be giving up a lot more than just movie tickets.
