I think after my experiences i would be very careful of dating anyone. In my experience, for a black man, being a loving man that has a good heart does not really matter.
I've even had this told to me directly and with actions. That to me speaks volumes. I have never dated a white woman and don't find them attractive ( as they would have to look like a sista ) however i will keep my options open for a foreign sista.
BTW, i read this thread and I like all shades of sistas but i've always gravitatied to more of the dark chocolate variety.
HonestBrotha, have you even got to know a sista from other countries? Like France or Brazil or Trinidad? The problem is this culture.
