I really tried hard, not to say this........but since you keep bringing it up....i will.

Black men/women have had a longgggggg history. We've hurt each other....and because of this, we have a very low tolerance towards certain behaviors.

White women, have never dealt with, (some) black men and their behavior.......a lot of them havent been hurt.......YET. (Although i do have college peers, that are now alone.....after the baby was born, need i say more?)

The bottom line is this.....white women will be more receptive towards your smiles, etc.

White women are the only ones, that are able to walk around....in society, without constantly being attacked.

Black men are attacked, black women.........and white men are attacked (for obvious reasons).

This may be the reason why, white women can walk around........smiling.

Im not attacking you........but this is truly something to think about.

Something about this part of your statement is so profound, and true; and for the life if me,I cannot say why. Years ago on the show, 'In Living Color', there was a character, played by the show's only white female cast member. In her many skits, this particular character was always out with her Black girl friend, whose character was somewhat surly but hopeful, as they were out cruising for guys; the white female character was this persona, who was extremely giddy, happy, 'free-spirited', and who screamed a lot, when happily expressing things that made her even more excited. Now of course most American white females are not like that character, but, that character sort of captured what most men and others see when they view white women; especially young(ish) (16-35) white women. That persona, or the extremely fast walking 'gotta get there' white woman. Men are attracted to that. I remember once, one of my associates, who was dating a policeman, who happened to be a white man; told her that she was 'his first' Black woman. She asked him why he had not dated a Black woman prior to her, and his answer was that, 'you(meaning he) can see the Black woman's misery' all over her, but especially in her face, at the mall, at bus stops, on trains etc. My friend was a 'giddy' acting Black woman, and he liked that.
