Aw man, this is hilarious, because this past week, one of my colleagues, who is a published writer and economics professor; and is an African woman (Nigerian;hope she does'nt come to this site; yikes!), has intimated to me that she has met a caucasian male on line (match. com) and has suggested that I do likewise. I have 'a friend', but, she is pushing THIS. She met my friend and told me I could do better. wth! Anyway, I am curious, because she appears to be quite 'pleased' with her internet 'catch'. She met another caucasian male online, who wanted to marry her and move her to Tanzania! What in the world! This African woman and several of her 'sisters' from the continent, are all online with this objective. She is attempting to push me in this direction. She was married to an African man, had two beautiful children (now college age), and she says she wants 'more'. Whatever her definition of more is. She tried to get me to go with her to see ' Something New', and told me how much she enjoyed it. That it is the way for Black/African/American women to go. I told her, men are essentially men, and white men have that extra historical 'baggage' as far as I am concerned. I have met several caucasian males at work, gone out with two; and the jury is deliberating. I have known two other African American women (associates of mine) who met two men online (one caucasian; the other African American) and, they took the chance, met them, dated, and married/moved in with them. Halle Berry's guy is gorgeous; as is Robin Given's. Is'nt Given's guy Antonio Sabato? Anyway, my childhood'dream' for the African cultural utopia, is not to be. I mean, maybe it was just me, and a few of my close female friends, but we had this notion of a Black man for every 'sister', and a Black woman for every 'brother'; but as I've been seeing, non-black women have themselves at times four and five 'brothers' at once, and the 'sisters 0,zilch, nada.
