Let me tell you why in one word: confidence. Black women often have a sort of confidence, and I don't know if it's just bred into them, that a lot of white women seem to lack. Most black women don't care at all about weight and tend to go pretty nuts with their hairstyles. Not only do they look gorgeous, especially the more curvy ones, but men, black, white and otherwise, just drool over them.
Also, black men get a really unfair rap, pun intended. Most of them are amazing human beings that actually treat women as the beautiful gems that they are. Yeah, a lot of them don't, but a lot of men are rotten, just as a lot of women are rotten. But more often than not, it's black boys and girls that tell me that I'm gorgeous and sexy. So you may be able to understand why I love them back in much the same way.
"White" girls always said I was fat, and my hair wasn't right, and I needed nicer clothes. No, I was perfectly fine the way that I was. It oddly enough wasn't until after high school that I started to feel inadequate, when a lot of the beautiful black people weren't around to tell me that I was amazing just as I was. Interestingly enough, it was a white guy who finally told me that I was the most beautiful woman in the world. So yeah, there's good guys of every color. But growing up, it was the black guys that told me they wanted me as their boo. I was happy to oblige. Especially for the black gurls that wanted the same. (Spelling entirely intentional.)
One thing I find very interesting, and it seems to be a growing trend especially now, is how a lot of white girls who the "preppy" crowd (as we used to call them) won't accept start to emulate "black" behavior! These girls are often very much curvy and some of them do some wacky things with their style and even emulate "black" speech patterns and attitudes. If not for the color of their skin, you'd never know they were white. A lot of these gurls get mocked and laughed at, but some of them are the most beautiful and confident women I've ever seen. A lot of them have become really good underground rappers. They're boss bitches and I adore them. And parents think that "black culture" is bad on their daughters. Works for white males, too. Black culture just seems to inspire a lot of self-confidence. I think that's pretty awesome.
I'm not much of a rapper, but I have decent rhythm. I don't pull off "black" very well at all without sounding and looking completely comical. So I'm pretty white girly. But that doesn't seem to matter - I'm still hot to the black guys to the chagrin of my own not-so-black boo. If God forbid anything ever goes south, I always know some black guy or girl will be there to cuddle with me.
Black is beautiful!
