I think that you all are going about this the wrong way...dating and love is non race orientated. You guys sound like race is the most frequent subject on you mind. I've been in both same race and interracial relationships and none of them were based on their ethnic background. No matter what some other black woman (man) has done it should never be push over on the rest of the them. not all black me are after white women even though there are some that happen to be in the public light...you speak of Kobe...but what about the other. Why aren't they mentioned. And for the guys not ever black women is materialistic and thew ones who are materialistic are not that way because they're black it's because of the bullshit propaganda that says that black women are supposed to be this way...so if you wanna attack something , attack MTV and BET and all these other company's allowing music that promote this bullshit...c'mon some of the very songs you listen to promote this shit..."If the status good I ain't looking" this form one of the most influential black women today...BEYONCE...why not attack her?...and you allow your daughters to listen to this bullshit and get mad when they turn into another statistic...it's the whole races fault! WOMEN AND MEN...for embracing this shit as our culture..it's not ..this shit was started here in america and has nothing to do with african culture...so it shouldn't be "Black MALE self-HATRED...WAKE UP!!!!!". It should be "Black people self-HATRED...WAKE UP!!!!!"
