What to know about dating a black man

So, if you're a black woman and you have been with, or are currently with a white man, I'm sure these topics have somehow made their way out of your mouth: If you didn't see this coming, then I'm not sure what to tell you.

Black hair is an incredibly versatile and amazing topic, but if you weren't brought up around it, it can be confusing.

In other words, before we can go on the attack we have to take ownership of our own issues.

I guarantee that the relationship did not begin with him mistreating you. This is why it is important to nip any bad behavior from your boo in the butt at first sight.

My grandmother would tell me this often when she was bestowing jewels of advice to me in regards to love and dealing with men. This love mantra if you will, is what assisted me in deciding who I should continue to date and whose time on my clock has just ended. This is why when I hear other Black women make comments that Black men are more willing to treat White women better while dating and in a relationship than they would Black women, I have to offer the screw face.

She also often instructed me to never beg a man to love me. Now, this topic is an onion of sorts because it is packed with so many layers that I even had trouble deciding how I should attack it.

Let me start by first reflecting on one of my grandmother’s mantras.People treat you the way you teach them to treat you.I think that before any sista can complain about how she is treated by a Black man, she must first decide what it is about her that would allow him to mistreat her.Do you want someone who understands your cultural heritage and shares your history?Do you want someone who can identify with your current life experience?
